8 The College Park Campus 



Universities in General 

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

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

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

The Campus and the University of Maryland 

The College Park Campus of the University of Maryland was chartered in 
1856 as the Maryland Agricultural College under a provision secured by a 
group of Maryland planters. After a disastrous fire in 1912. the State acquired 
control of the college and bore the cost of rebuilding The present form of the 
University of Maryland dates from the 1920 act of the Maryland state 
legislature, which united the State-owned institution at College Park and the 
professional schools in Baltimore, thus creating the University of Maryland at 
College Park (UMCP) and the University of Maryland at Baltimore (UMAB) 
campuses Later, the University added three other campuses Baltimore 
County (UMBC) at Catonsville. Eastern Shore (UMES) at Princess Anne, and 
the worldwide University College (UMUC). headquartered at College Park

Park Campus, uses its personnel and laboratories at UMCP and UMES. as well 
as the off-campus research farms (totalling over 3.000 acres) to conduct 
research in the areas ol natural resources and forestry, plants and crops, 
animals and poultry, economics and rural life, and general resource 
technology 



Summer Sessions 



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

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

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

Interpretation of Regulations 

3 Disciplinary regulations at the University are set forth in writing in order to 
give students general notice of prohibited conduct The regulations should

to protect the safety and well-being of the campus community '^' 

Student Participation 

5 Students are asked to assume positions of responsibility in the University 
judicial system in order that they might contribute their skills and insights to 
the resolution of disciplinary cases. Final authority in disciplinary matters, 
however, is vested m the University administration and m the Board of 
Regents.

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 remove 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 "deserved" 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 lylodern Law Review 205: 

The vice of regarding punishment entirely from the points of view of 
reformation and deterrence lies precisely in forgetting that a just 
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 undertake the forcible improvement of its 
citizens without regard to whether their conduct has made them morally 
liable to social coercion or not But ment and demerit, reward and 
punishment, have a different significance as applied to men and as 
applied to animals A dog may be called a good dog or a bad dog. but 
his goodness or badness can be finally explained in terms of heredity 
and environment. A man. however, is a person, and we instinctively 
recognise that he has a certain ultimate personal 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 in 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 (eg throwing a heavy object out a tenth floor window 
above a sidewalk) if the act itself, however, is unintended (e g one is 
distracted by a noise while climbing a flight of stairs and drops a heavy 
object) 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 w^hich allegedly occurred 
during 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 authonzed 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 purview of this code 

8 The standard set forth here represents the minimal procedural protection to 
be accorded to students charged with most disciplinary violations. 
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 565 
(1975) 

9 The Supreme Court has recently rejected the theory that state schools are 
bound by principles of federal administrative law requiring agencies to 
follow their own regulations Board of Curators, University of Missouri v. 
Horowitz 55 L Ed 2d 124. 136. See, generally, "Violations by Agencies of 
Their Own Regulations" 87 Harvard Law Review 629 (1974), 

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

297 F Supp. 1163 (N D cal 1969) 

1 1 The "controlled substances" or "illegal drugs" prohibited in this section are 
set forth in Schedules I through V in Article 27, part 279 of the Annotated 
Code of Maryland. 

12. Colleges and Universities should be a forum for the free expression of 
ideas In the recent past, however, unpopular speakers have been 
prevented from addressing campus audiences by students who effectively 
"shouted them down " Both Yale and Stanford Universities have treated 
such actions (which are to be distinguished from minor and occasional 
heckling) as serious disciplinary violations. See the "Report from the 
Committee on Freedom of Expression at Yale University" vi/hich 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 speecfi can never be justified on such grounds as that the 
speech or the speaker is deemed irresponsible, offensive, unscholarly. 
or untrue " 

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

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

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



Code of Student Conduct 1 3 



16 There does not seem to be any rational basis lor imposing less severe 
penalties (or attempts than for completed violations The authors ot the 
Model Penal Code, (or example, have written that 

To the extent that sentencing depends upon the antisocial disposition 
o( the actor and the demonstrated need tor a corrective action, there is 
likely to be little di((erence m the gravity o( the required measures 
depending on the consummation or the (allure o( the plan 

See LaFave. Criminal Law Treatise p 453 

17 These procedures are analogous to those (ound in the "emergency" 
disciplinary rules adopted by the Board ot Regents m 1971 and are 
consistent with the (ormal opinion o( 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, (or example, when a judicial board or the Senate 
Committee is charged with hearing a case involving one o( its own 
members The final determination as to whether a panel is "unable to hear 
a case" should be within the discretion of the Director of Judicial Programs. 

23 The power of confirmation represents a significant grant of authority to the 
Senate Committee, The committee is presently underutilized and might 
best contribute to the judicial system by becoming more intimately involved 
with It fvloreover. contirmation 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 o( 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 reterrals should not be limited to members o( 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 (ormer 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 1 1 to 



determine the permissible sanction to be imposed if the respondent is 
(ound guilty o( charges For example, a student involved in a minor 
altercation might be charged pursuant to part 9 (a), but reterred to a 
disciplinary conterence, thereby precluding the possibility ot expulsion or 
suspension (or the alleged misconduct 

29 The hearing procedures specitied at part 32 need not be (oHowed in 
disciplinary conferences Instead a disciplinary conference would normally 
consist of an in(ormal non-adversanal meeting between the respondent and 
a statf 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 growrth 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 
pertinent to the dispute at hand 

Conversation knows no such limits It too serves as a vehicle for 
resolving what are likely to be factually uncomplicated disputes, but it 
does more than that It enables students to feel that they are being 
listened to and may encourage them to raise underlying grievances. It 
provides administrators with a relatively inexpensive vehicle for 
monitoring, and hence a basis for reshaping institutional relationships. 
The outcome of these orderly thoughtful conversations' may well be 
decisions different in their particulars from what might otherwise have 
been anticipated, repeated conversations which touch upon similar 
student grievances may ultimately lead disciplinarians 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 of separation from the University. Accordingly, the 
procedure appears to meet or exceed the due process requirements set 
forth by the United States Supreme Court for cases involving suspensions 
of ten days or less In Goss v. Lopez the Court held 

we stop short of construing the Due Process Clause to require, 
countrywide, that hearings in connection with short suspensions must 
afford the student the opportunity to secure counsel, to confront and 
cross-examine witnesses supporting the charge, or to call his own 
witnesses to verify his version of the incident Brief disciplinary 
suspensions are almost countless To impose in each such case even 
truncated trial-type procedures might well overwhelm administrative 
facilities in many places and. by diverting resources, cost more than it 
would save in educational effectiveness fuloreover, 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 of disputes about facts and arguments 
about cause and effect He may then determine himself to summon the 
accuser, permit cross-examination, and allow the student to present his 
own witnesses In more difficult cases, he may permit counsel. In any 
event, his discretion will be more informed and we think the risk of error 
substantially reduced (42 L Ed 2d 725. 740) 

30 The case file consists of materials which would be considered "education 
records", pursuant to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act 
Personal notes of University staff members or complainants are not 
included 



14 Human Relations Code 



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 materials 

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 atlorney 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 of 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 facts 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 
frivolous objections, 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 of 
legal representation, granted in 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 in the act or 
statement of an individual associated with it, that individual might 
reasonably be regarded as a leader or a spokesman for the group or 
organization 

43. "Suspension" includes deferred 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 judicial 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 of 
validity) to lower board decisions will distort the entire disciplinary system 
Respondents would be encouraged to "test their strategy" and "perfect 
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 board'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 information at the hearing which might lead to 
new evidence are required to request an adjournment rather than wait to 
raise the matter for the first time on appeal, 

49 An arbitrary and capricious decision would be a decision "unsupported by 
any evidence " The cited 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 state boards or agencies 
See McDonald v. Board of Trustees ol the University of 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, in accordance with 
University regulations and applicable state and federal law 

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

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

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

* See tt\e procedures for mandatory medical withdrawal developed by the 
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. 

" See Macklin Fleming, The Price ol Perfect Justice: In our pursuit of . . 
. perfectibility, we necessarily neglect other elements of an effective 
procedure, notably the resolution of controversies within a reasonable time 
at a reasonable cost, with reasonable uniformity . ... we impair the 
capacity of the legal order to achieve the basic values lor which it was 
created, that is. to settle disputes promptly and peaceably, to restrain the 
strong, to protect the weak, and to conform the conduct of all to settled 
rules of law.

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 
Chancellors Office Any such review under the authority granted in this 
statement of policy shall be undertaken only after specific authonzation 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 



16 Human Relations Code 



policies, practices or patterns of behavior which may reflect discrimination 
prohibited by this Code or which may conflict with any other Campus 
policy concerning human relations or with the Campus Affirmative Action 
Plan, and shall call these to the attention of the appropriate officials of the 
unit involved and recommend appropriate action Those subject to 
allegations of discrimination shall be afforded all the protections of due 
process The Office shall endeavor by negotiation to eliminate the alleged 
discrimination Where such efforts fail, the Office may on its own motion

minority students for their academic and social experience at the University of 
Maryland at College Park OMSE, in conjunction with the various divisions and 
campus units, develops support teams with each consisting of a faculty/staff 
member, a peer advisor and approximately fifteen students who meet twice a

General Academic Advising 



Academic advising is available to all students at College Park It is the 
responsibility of the student to make arrangements for advising with the 
appropriate person. 

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

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

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

(2) to develop insights about personal behavior which promotes improved 
ad|ustment 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, must 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 Records and Registrations will have primary, 
but not exclusive responsibility for issuing these statements 

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

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

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



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

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

Finding an Advisor. Undergraduate students at the College Park Campus are 
encouraged to use the many advisement opportunities that are available to 
them At all academic levels — divisional, college, and departmental — at least 
one person had been designated to coordinate advising A list of these 
persons, providing name, room number, and telephone extension is published 
each semester in the Schedule of Classes Students who are unable to locate 
an advisor or who have questions about campus advising programs should 
visit or call the Undergraduate Advising Center, Room 1117, Hornbake Library, 
454-2733 or 454-3040 



Honors Programs 

A number of special opportunities are available to energetic, academically 
talented students through the establishment of Honors Programs The General 
Honors Program is available to qualified students throughout the campus. In 
addition there are Department Honors Programs in approximately 30 academic 
departments and colleges 

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

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

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

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

Members of Association of College Honor Societies 



Election to Phi Beta Kappa 

Organized in 1 776, Phi Beta Kappa is one of the oldest and most widely 
respected honorary societies in the United States Only twelve percent of 
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 of the liberal arts and sciences Student members are chosen 
entirely on the basis of academic excellence; neither extra-curricular 
leadership nor service to the community is considered 

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

Requirements for consideration include the following: 

1 Residence. At least half the credit hours required for graduation must be 
taken at the University of Maryland, College Park 

2 Liberal Courses. Three-fourths of the hours required for graduation (i e , 90 
hours) must be in liberal arts or liberal sciences Liberal courses means 
courses that are theoretical and academic, not professional or applied 

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

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

5 Distribution oi Courses. The credit hours presented for graduation must be 
more evenly distributed among the natural sciences, the social sciences, 



and the humanities than the University requires for graduation under the 
University Studies Program Ivlinimal qualifications in more than one area 
may preclude election Students with strong courses, broad distribution, 
and moderately high grade point averages are preferred to those with a 
very high grade point average in a narrow range of 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 professional, 
rather than liberal, courses 
6 Junior Election. A very small number of students are elected at the end of 
their junior year instead of the semester in which they are graduated They 
must have at least a 3,75 grade point average, and fulfill 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 
foreign language or about what courses are counted as liberal should visit the 
Phi Beta Kappa Office. Francis Scott Key Hall. Room 2102D or telephone 
454--1203, 



Commencement Honors 

Honors for excellence in scholarship are determined by the highest 2 
percent (Summa cum Laude). the next 3 percent (Magna cum Laude), and the 
following 5 percent (cum Laude) of the GPA's of the preceding three 
graduating classes of each degree-granting unit To be eligible for this 
recognition, a total of at least 60 semester credits earned at the University of 
Maryland is required Of these 60 credits, at least 30 credits must have been 
earned at the College Park Campus The computation of the cumulative grade 
point average does not include grades for courses taken during the last 
semester of registration before graduation, although the hours earned for that 
semester will apply toward the 60-hour requirement No student with a grade 
point average less than 3.000 will be considered

State Board for Higher Education Transfer Policies 

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

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



Preamble 

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

The intended principal benefactor is the student, who is best served by 
current information about programs and protected by firm arrangements 
among the public segments of higher education m Maryland which permit him 
to plan a total degree program from the outset With successful academic 
performance, he or she can make uninterrupted progress even though transfer 
is involved The measures of the effectiveness of the plan is maximum 
transferability of college level credits within the parameters of this agreement 
Essentially, transfer and native students are to be governed by the same 
academic rules and regulations 

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

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

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

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

or who have successfully completed 56 hours of credit with an overall 
2.0 average, in either case in college and university parallel courses, 
shall not be denied transfer to an institution If the number of students 
desiring admission exceeds the number that can be accommodated in 
a particular professional or specialized program or certain

The University Studies Program 

The University Studies Program is the general education requirement at the 
University of Maryland, College Park This program must be completed by all 
students beginning baccalaureate study after IVIay, 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 m the discourse of the university through demonstrated mastery of 
written English and mathematics These requirements are to be completed 
early in the student's program in order to serve as a foundation for subsequent 
work 

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

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 in terms of specific cultural, social, 
scientific or aesthetic problems which may be approached from several points 
of view Courses m both "Advanced Studies" categories require students to 
exercise critical thinking skills m the analysis of complex problems 

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

Degree Requirements 

It is the responsibility of departments, colleges, divisions, or appropriate 
academic units to establish and publish clearly defined degree requirements- 
Responsibility for knowing and meeting all degree requirements for graduation 
in any curriculum rests with the student Each student should check with the 
proper academic authorities no later than the close of the junior year to 
ascertain his or her standing with respect to advancement toward a degree. 
For this purpose, each student should be sure to retain a copy of the semester 
grade reports issued by the Office of Records and Registrations at the close of 
each semester 

The following list of degree requirements includes only those that are 
campus-wide in nature For requirements established by specific divisions, 
colleges and departments or other academic units, the student is referred to 
the appropriate descriptions in Part 3 of this catalog 



1. Credit Requirements for Graduation 



a. While several undergraduate curricula require more than 120 credits, no 
baccalaureate curriculum requires fewer than 120. No baccalaureate 
degree will be awarded in instances in which fewer than 120 credit hours 
have been earned It is the responsibility of each student to familiarize 
himself or herself with the requirements of specific curriculum The student 
is urged to seek advice on these matters from the departments, colleges, 
divisions or the Office of Undergraduate Studies, 

b In order to earn a baccalaureate degree from College Park, a minimum of 
30 credits must be taken in residence at the College Park Campus 
Nothing stated below modifies this basic requirement in any way. 



2. Grade Point Average 

An overall C (2 00) grade point average is required for graduation in all 
curricula 

3. Off-Campus Courses 

Courses taken at another campus of the University of Maryland or at 
another institution concurrent with regular registration on the College Park 
Campus may not be credited toward a College Park degree without advance 
approval by the Provost of the Division or the Dean of the College from which 
the student expects to receive a degree For students not registered in any 
Division or College, the Dean for Undergraduate Studies shall assume the 
responsibilities normally delegated to Provosts and Deans The same applies 
to off-campus registration in the summer program of another institution. 



50 Academic Regulations and Requirements 



4. Residency Requirements 

All candidates lor College Park degrees should plan to take their final 30 
credits in residence since the advanced work of 'their major study normally 
occurs in the last year of the undergraduate course For students in the 
combined three-year, pre-professional programs, the final 30 hours of the 90 
hour program taken at College Park must be taken in residence A student who 
at the time of graduation will have completed 30 hours in residence at College 
Park may. under unusual circumstances, be permitted to take a maximum of 
six of the final 30 credits of record at another institution In such cases, written 
permission must be obtained in advance from the Dean or Provost of the 
academic unit from which the student expects to receive the degree 

5. Enrollment in Majors 

a. A student must be enrolled in the major program from which he or she

baccalaureate program This requirement also applies to the third year of 
the combined, pre-professional degree programs 

b, A student who wishes to complete a second major in addition to his or her 
primary major of record must obtain wntten permission in advance from the 
appropriate Deans and/or Provosts As early as possible, but in no case

programs Students enrolled in two majors simultaneously must 
satisfactorily complete the regularly prescribed requirements for each of 
the programs Courses taken for one major may be counted as part of the 
degree requirements for the other and toward the requirements for the 
University Studies Program However, no course used in either curriculum 
to satisfy a major, supporting area, college or divisional requirement may 
be used to satisfy the General University Requirements If two divisions are 
involved in the double major program, the student must designate which 
division is responsible for the maintenance of records. 

6. Second Degrees 

a Second Degree Taken Sequentially. A student who has completed 
requirements for and has received one baccalaureate degree and who 
wishes to earn a second baccalaureate degree from College Park must 
satisfactorily complete the requirements of the second degree and enough 
additional credits so that the total, including all applicable credits earned at 
College Park or elsewhere, is at least 150 credits In no case, however, will 
a second baccalaureate degree be awarded to a student who has not 
completed the last 30 credit hours in residence at College Park Approval

Credit Unit and Load 

The semester hour, which is the unit of credit, is the equivalent of a subject 
pursued one period a week for one semester Two or three hours of laboratory 
or field work are equivalent to one lecture or recitation period The student is 
expected to devote three hours a week in classroom or laboratory or in outside 
preparation for each credit hour in any course. 

In order for an undergraduate student to complete most curricula in four 
academic years, the semester credit load must range from 12 to 19 hours so 
that he would complete from 30 to 36 hours each year toward the degree A 
student registering for more than 19 hours per semester must have the special 



approval of his or her dean or provost

the number of credit hours enrolled at this time is 9 or more Courses may 
be dropped with no academic penalty for a total period of 10 weeks in 
which there are classes, starling from the first day of classes The 
permanent record will be marked W to indicate this This mark shall not be 
used in any computation of quality point or cumulative average totals at the 
end of the semester However, the mark does not change the minimum 
number of quality points a student is required to achieve which is based on 
registratjon at the end of the schedule adjustment period (See tylarking 
System below ) After this initial schedule adjustment period, a charge shall 
be made for each course dropped or added (See Schedule of Fees

concurrent with regular registration on the College Park Campus may not 
be credited without approval in advance by the provost of the division from 
which the student expects a degree The same rule applies to off-Campus 
registration or registration m the summer school of another institution 

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

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

Attendance 

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

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

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

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

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



Marl<ing System

only by the original instructor on certification, approved by the department 
chairman and the dean or provost, that an actual mistake was made in 
determining or recording the grade 

2 The mark of A denotes excellent mastery of the subject It denotes

permanent record by the Office of Records and Registration The Office of 
Registrations will promptly notify the instructor that the student has 
withdrawn from the course This mark shall not be used in any computation 
of quality points or cumulative average totals at the end of the semester 
However, the mark does not change the minimum number of quality points 
a student is required to achieve based on registration at the end of the 
schedule adjustment period 

1 1 Audit A student may register to audit a course or courses in which space

Proficiency Examination Programs 

Whether you are a new. a continuing, or a returning student, the College 
Park Campus offers several opportunities to earn college credit through 
satisfactory achievement in a variety of examinations 

Currently, undergraduate students may earn by examination up to half of 
the credits required for their degree It is the student's responsibility to consult 
with the appropriate divisional officer, dean and advisor with regard to 
applicability of any credit earned by examination to a specific degree program 
and to determine courses which should not be elected m order to avoid 
duplication A student will not receive credit for txith passing an examination in 
a course and completing the same course. 

Students with specific questions about the University s policy may contact 
the Director. Special Advising Programs. Room 1117. Hornbake Library 
(454-2731) 

Three proficiency examination programs are recognized for credit by the 
College Park Campus 

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 otherwise 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 lor some CLEP General or Subject Examinations, provided 
satisfactory scores are attained 

Pollclea 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 Ivlaryland is a CLEP Test Center (Test 
Center Code 5814). giving tests the third Saturday of the month 

The fees for these examinations are listed on the standard CLEP 
application form To obtain an application or additional information, contact Ms. 
Williams in the Counseling Center. Shoemaker Hall (Room 0106A), or write to 
the Program Director. College Level Examination Program. Box 1821. 
Pnnceton. N J 08540 

Students who desire to earn credit through CLEP must have their official 
score reports sent to the Office of Admissions. North Administration Building, 
University of Maryland. College Park 20742 

A student must matriculate at College Park before requesting the posting of 
CLEP credits Such posting will not be done until a student has established a 
transcript, i e . earned credit through regulariy taken courses Each campus of 
the University establishes standards for acceptance of CLEP and AP 
exemptions and credits Students must check with the campus to which they 
will transfer to learn if they will lose, maintain or gain credit 

The College Park Campus will award credit for a CLEP examination 
provided the examination was being accepted for credit on this campus on the 
date the examination was taken by the student 

Credit will not be given for txith completing a course and passing an 
examination covering substantially the same material 

CLEP examinations posted on transcripts from other institutions will be 
accepted if the examination has been approved by the College Park Campus 
and the scores reported are equal to or greater than those required by this 
campus If the transcript from the prior institution does not carry the scores, it 
will be the responsibility of the student to request the Educational Testing 
Service to forward a copy of the official report to the Office of Admissions

Departmental Proficiency Examinations (Credit by Examination). College 
Park Departmental Proficiency Examinations, customanly referred to as 
"credit-by-examination", are offered in a number of University courses, and are 
comparable to comprehensive final examinations in those courses These 
examinations are given at a time mutually agreed upon by the student and the 
department Department offices wrill provide information regarding place and 
administration, type of examination, and material which might be helpful in 
preparing for examinations 

An undergraduate who passes a departmental proficiency examination is 
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 for an examination should see the Director of Special 
Advising Programs, Room 3151. Hornbake Library. 

Policies 

The applicant must be formally admitted to the College Park Campus 
Posting of credit, however, will be delayed until the student is registered 

Departmental Proficiency Examinations may not be taken for courses in 
which the student has been registered beyond the schedule adjustment period 
(the first 10 days of classes). 

Departmental Proficiency Examinations may not be used to change grades, 
including incompletes. 



Application for credit-by-examination is equivalent to registration for a 
course, however, the following conditions apply: 
a. A student may cancel the application at any time prior to completion of the 
examination with no entry on his/her permanent record (Equivalent to the 
schedule adjustment period ) 
b The instructor makes the results of the examination available to the student 
prior to formal submission of the grade Before formal submission of the 
grade, a student may elect not to have this grade recorded In this case, a 
symbol of W is recorded (Equivalent to the drop procedure ) 
c t^o course may be attempted more than twice 

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

Letter grades earned on examinations to establish credit, if accepted by 
the student, are entered on the student's transcript and used in computing 
his/her cumulative grade point average A student may elect to take an 
examination for credit on a "Pass-Fail" basis under the normal "Pass-Fail" 
regulations 

Academic Dishonesty 

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

In cases involving charges of academic dishonesty, the instructor in the 
course or person in charge of the activity shall report to the instructional 
department chairperson or dean (if there is no chairperson) any information 
received and the facts within his or her knowledge If the chairperson of the 
instructional department determines that there is any sound reason for 
believing that academic dishonesty may be involved, he or she shall refer the 
matter to the dean or provost The dean or provost will then confer with the 
student's dean or provost and will check the Judiciary Office records to 
determine if the student has any record of pnor offenses involving academic 
dishonesty The dean or provost will then consult with the student involved, 
and if the alleged academic dishonesty is admitted by the student and is his 
first offense of this nature, the dean or provost may authorize the department 
chairperson to resolve the charges, provided the penalty is accepted by the 
student in writing In such case the department chairperson will make a written 
report of the matter, including the action taken, to the student's dean or 
provost and to the Judiciary Office. 

If the case is not resolved in the above manner, the dean or provost of the 
instructional department will appoint an ad hoc Committee of Academic 
Dishonesty, The Committee will consist of one member from the faculty of the 
college or division administered by the dean or provost as chairperson, one 
undergraduate student, and one member from the faculty of the student's 
college or division appointed by the dean of that college or provost of the 
division. If the student's dean or provost and the dean or provost administering 
the instructional department are the same, a second member of the faculty of 
the college or division concerned is appointed If within jurisdiction of the 
Dean for Undergraduate Studies that Dean will appoint the ad hoc Committee 
on Academic Dishonesty consisting of two faculty having experience in the 
General Studies Program, one sen/ing as chairperson, and one student in that 
program 

The dean or provost of the instructional department will refer the specific 
report of alleged academic dishonesty to this ad hoc committee and the 
committee will hear the case The hearing procedures before this committee 
will in general conform to those required for student judicial boards The Code 
of Student Conduct provides that any act of academic dishonesty, including a 
first offense, will place the student in jeopardy of "suspension from the 
University, unless specific and significant mitigating factors are present" (part 
eleven) A repeated violation, or the more serious first offense, may result in 
expulsion Also, disciplinary records for any act of academic dishonesty are 
retained in the Judicial Programs Office for three years from the date of final 
adjudication 

The chairman of the committee will report its actions to the dean or 
provost, the student's dean or provost, and to the Judiciary Office The dean or 
provost of the instructional department will advise the student in writing of the 
disciplinary action of the committee and, if it has been determined that the 
student should be suspended or expelled, advise the student of the right to file 
an appeal, m accordance with Parts 38, and 40 through 45 of the Code of 
Student Conduct. 

TO REPORT ACADEMIC DISHONESTY, DIAL 454-4746 AND ASK FOR 
THE "CAMPUS ADVOCATE".

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

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

The horticulturist combines a knowledge of the basic sciences with an 
intimate knowledge of plants and their requirements in an effort to help meet 
the food needs of the world population and to help beautify man's 
surroundings The horticulturist specifically, is involved with fruit production 
(pomology), vegetable production (olericulture), greenhouse plant production 
(floriculture), production of ornamental trees and shrubs, post-harvest 
horticulture, and the aesthetic and functional planning and design of 
landscapes for public and 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. 

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

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

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

Pre-Forestry 

The Pre-forestry curriculum offers a number of opportunities to the student 
interested in pursuing a continued education in forestry, conservation-related 
subjects, or other disciplines related to the biological/ natural life sciences The 
curriculum is strongly oriented in the sciences and is composed of foundation 
courses which transfer rather readily into related curricula at the University of 
Maryland and other universities 

Pre-forestry students are advised in the Department of Horticulture The 
State of Maryland has an agreement with the Southern Regional Education 
Board and North Carolina State University which provides some financial 
assistance in tuition to a limited number of Maryland residents who have 
completed two years study in pre-forestry and have been accepted by the 
School of Forest Resources at North Carolina State University The State of 
Maryland will make payment toward the non-resident tuition for a period not to 
exceed two years (four semesters) in accordance with the funds appropriated 
in the State budget for this purpose The State of Maryland also has an 
agreement with West Virginia University where Maryland residents accepted 
into forestry programs at WVU will be eligible for in-state tuition. These 
students may transfer at any time to WVU,

Biological Sciences Program * 

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

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

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

Curriculum. All students in the Biological Sciences program must satisfy the 
requirements of the University of Mainland at College Park and the 
requirements of the Division of Agricultural and Life Sciences All courses in 
the basic and advanced program must be completed with a grade of C or

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

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

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

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

The geology curriculum is designed to meet the requirements of industry, 
graduate school and government. However, students may select, at their 
option, geology electives that are designed for a particular interest, rather than 
for the broad needs of a professional career All required geology courses 
must be completed with a grade of C or better. An average of C is required in 
the supporting courses. Courses required for the BS in geology are listed 
below.

The Agricultural Experiment Station 

The Ma> ana Ag-cj;u'a Exce'men; Station is currently conducting more 
than 200 resea'Cf D'Ojects These are conducted by faculty wtio supervise 
and direct resea'ch ass slants, graduate and undergraduate students and 
technicians The -esearch may be conducted in laboratories or at one of the 
nine field locations throughout Maryland operated by the Expenment Station or 
even in felds. herds or flocks of cooperating farmers 

The overall objective of the Experiment Station is to enhance aH aspects of 
Maryland agriculture for the benefit of farmers, farm-related business and 
consumers through optimal utilization, conservation and protection of soil and 
water resources Genetic principles are studied and applied in the 
improvement of turf and ornamentals, vegetable crops, field crops, poultry 
dairy and other animals, Similariy, 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 in evaluating the 
nutritional quality of crops produced, the efficiency of feed conversion by 
poultry and animals or the quality of plant and animal products for human 
consumption Research in progress is concerned with improvement of 
processing systems to enhance food quality on one hand and the impact of 
nutritional deficiencies and means of remedying these on the other Also 
directly in the consumer area is the study of clothing quality 

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

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

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

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

Cooperative Extension Service 

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

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

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

Off-campus faculty, located in each county and in Baltirrxjre City, are the 
"front lines' that deliver University resources in ways people can use them 
effectively These field faculty rely on campus based Coop>erative Extension 
specialists at both the College Park and Eastern Shore campuses to provide 
up-to-date, meaningful information and for aid in planning and conducting 
relevant educational programs. Many of the Cooperative Extension sen/ice 
faculty at the State level carry joint appointments with 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 and natural resources (including care of urban home grounds and 
gardens), home economics, 4-H and youth community and resource 
development and energy, and marine science Wori<ing through organized 
groups such as fxxnemakers clubs farmers groups and cooperatives, 
agribusiness firms, watermen's organizations, cvic 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 m 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 m close harmony and association 
with many groups and organizations In addition to work on farms and with 
agri-businesses, extension programs are aimed at many small and part time 
farmers, rural non-farm and urban family consumers as well as watermen and 
marine related businessmen Both rural and urban families learn good food 
habits through the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program 
Thousands of boys and girls gain leadership knowledge and experience and 
are provided practical educational instruction in 4-H clubs and other youth 
groups 

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

Division of Arts and Humanities 

Provost: Kenny 

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

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

Arts and Humanities encourages its students to take multi- or 
interdisciplinary approaches to the study of human cultural behavior Majors 
are available in American Studies and Russian Studies Faculty representing 
various disciplines will advise students on such other-worid area studies as 
East Asian End Latin American Or a student, with faculty help, may devise 
coherent programs m. for example. Womens Studies. Popular Culture, 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 socia sciences 

Many of the major programs m Arts and Humanities make excellent pre-law 
preparation In fact, with a judicious choice of electives in this and other 
divisions, students with any major in Arts and Humanities may prepare 
themselves for careers or advanced training in business, government, law. 
teaching, publishing, library work, and museum work, among others Internship 
opportunities 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 Provosts 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 various faculty 
advisors and academic programs within the Division The office of the Provost 
is the place where students can go when they are lost or have any question 
about academic policies or procedures The staff can adjust courses or 
schedules, providing it is ethically justifiable The Provost s office can interpret 
existing regulations and. where it again feels ethically justified, can make 
certain exceptions Students majoring in architecture and journalism will wort<

Two majors are offered in art art history and studio The student who 
majors in art history is committed to the study and scholarly interpretation of 
existing works of art, from the prehistoric era to our times, while the studio 



major stresses the student's direct participation m the creation of works of art 

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

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

Recognizing that dance combines both athleticism and artistry, the dance 
program offers comprehensive technique and theory courses as a foundation 
for the dance professions By developing an increasing awareness ol the 
physical, emotional and intellectual aspects of movement in general, the 
student eventually is able to integrate his own particular mind-body 
consciousness into a more meaningful whole To facilitate the acquisition of 
new movement skills, as well as creative and scholarly insights m 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 m a particular 
area of emphasis in dance Although an area of emphasis is not mandatory, 
many third and fourth year students are interested in studying a singular 
aspect of dance in depth, such as performance, choreography 
production management, education or general studies (encompassing dance 
history, literature and criticism) Students selecting the education emphasis 
may obtain State of l\/1aryland teacher certification Students desiring a 
periormance 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 periormance and 
choreographic opportunities tor all dance students, ranging from informal 
workshops to fully mounted concerts both on and off campus Students may 
have the opportunity of working with Iv^aryland Dance Theater or with 
Improvisations Unlimited, both in residence in the Department 

Ivtajor course requirements total 48 semester hours in dance and 6 
semester hours in non-department supporting areas Of these, a minimum of 
15 semester hours must be taken m dance at the upper division level Students

determined by placement auditions The six credits in supporting courses are 
selected with the prior approval of a faculty advisor, A grade of "C" or higher 
must be attained m all dance courses 

New, re-entering and transfer students are expected to contact the 
department following admission to the University for instructions regarding

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



the interests of those in the majority who are preparing for careers outside of 
philosophy as well as those in the minority who are preparing for graduate 
study in philosophy 

The following are among the courses giving the general student training in 
rigorous thinking, experience in critical and imaginative reflection on 
philosophical problems or familiarity with the philosophical foundations of 
Western and other cultures PHIL 100 (Introduction to Philosophy), PHIL 110 
(Plato's Republic). 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. 328 

For students interested particularly m philosophical problems arising within 
their own special disciplines, a number of courses are appropriate: PHIL 233 
(Philosophy in Literature). PHIL 250 and 453 (Philosophy of Science I and II). 
PHIL 245 and 445 (Social and Political Philosophy I and II). PHIL 360 
(Philosophy of Language), PHIL 308B (Philosophy of Beauty), PHIL 3080 
(Philosophy of An). PHIL 334 (Philosophy of Music). PHIL 438 (Topics in 
Philosophical Theology). PHIL 450 and 451 (Scientific Thought I and II). PHIL 
452 (Philosophy of Physics). PHIL 454 (Philosophy of Economics). PHIL 455 
(Philosophy of the Social Sciences). PHIL 456 (Philosophy of Biology). PHIL 
457 (Philosophy of History). PHIL 458 (Topics m the Philosophy of Science, 
e g Philosophy of Psychology. Historical and Conceptual Foundations of 
Mathematics), 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 m 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 m Contemporary Philosophy), 
cross-listed under similar headings m Government and Politics Topics include 
such subjects as Business Ethics. Welfare and Distnbutive Justice. 
Responsibility of Professionals. Environmental Ethics and the Morality of Forced 
Military Draft 

The departmental requirements for a major m philosophy are as follows: (1) 
a total of at least 30 hours in philosophy, not including PHIL 100. (2) PHIL 142, 
371. 310. 320. 326 and at least two courses numbered 399 or above. (3) a 
grade of C or better in each course counted toward the fulfillment of the major 
requirement 

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

themselves

taken elsewhere, and they must complete at least 12 more hours in Russian 
language beyond the basic level (chosen from among RUSS 201, 202, 301. 
302. 311. 312. 321. and 322 or equivalent courses) In addition, students must 
complete 24 hours in Russian area courses on the 300 level or alxjve These 
24 hours must be taken in at least 5 different departments, if appropriate

graduate work complete at least 18 hours at the 300 level or above (which may 
include courses applicable to the Russian Area Program) in one of the 
above-mentioned departments It is also recommended that students who plan 
on doing graduate work in the social sciences — government and politics, 
economics, geography, and sociology — take at least two courses in statistical 
methods

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

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

In adhenng to the above policy, it is the practice of the College of Business 
and Management to accept m 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) semester hours m 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 Amencan 
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

Anthropology

Associate Professors: Leone. Rosen 
Assistant Professors: Dent. Stuart 
Lecturer: Cassidy (p t ) 
Assistant Instructor: Kedar (p t ) 

Anthropology has been defined as "the study of man" because it is the 
only discipline which tries to understand humans as a whole — as an animal, as 
a social being, as a literate being — from the very beginning of time and all 
over the world Anthropologists try to explain oifferences 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 grovwi 
and changed through time, and the way man has spread over the earth This 
is not the history of kings and great men or of wars and treaties: it is the 



iiistofy. including the present, and science of human knowledge and tjehavior 

The cross-cultural experience gives us not only specific krxjwledge of other 
cultures, which may t>e important in a variety of put>lic liealth. business, 
agricultural and diplomatic endeavors, but also an appreciation of how strongly 
people feel about the cultural pattems with which they grew up The four 
subfields of Anthropology (cultural anthropotogy, archaeology, physical 
anthropology and linguistics) have proven valuable m understanding not only 
foreign cultures, but also segments of our ovwi society, as m urban ghettos or 
in institutions such as hospitals and schools They all deal with people and 
culture, and thus contnbute to the development of the holistic view which, nxxe 
than any other element, charactenzes Anthropology as a discipline 

It is becoming increasingly clear that Anthropology has been a definite 
asset in finding jobs in a variety of fields ranging from business to the fine arts. 
Whether one goes on to a Masters or a Ph D , striving to advance ttie frontiers 
of knowledge concerning our species artti tt>e 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 ttie 
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 arxJ advanced coursewo* 
in the four principal subdivisions of ttie discipline physical anthropology. 
linguistics, archaeology and cultural anthropology Within each area, ttie 
Department offers some degree of specialization and provides a variety of 
opportunities within the curriculum, LatXKalory courses are offered in physical 
anthropology and archaeology, field schools are offered in archaeology a/xJ 
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. osteok>gy, and arcfiaeological 
analysis The interrelationship of all brar>cties of anthropology is emphasized. 
Courses in these subdivisions may be used to fulfill ttie minor or 'supporting 
courses" requirement n some programs leading to the B A degree. 

The Anthropology Detjartmeni has a total of five laboratories located in 
Woods Hall, which are divided into teaching labs and research labs. At 
present, ttiere 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, histolic. and 
electrophonetic equipment, and the osteological lab is centered arourxJ an 
extensive research collection There is one Ethnology/Linguistics lab which also 
doubles as a seminar room The Department's two Arctiaeology labs, 
containing materials collected from field schools of the past several years, 
serve as both teaching and research labs

* Appointment with unit indicated. 

The undergraduate economics program is designed to give students an 
understanding of the Amencan 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 sen/ices, 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 major 
are as follows 

(1) Economic Courses (30 hours) 

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

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

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

(2) Mathematics Supporting Courses (6 hours) 

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

(3) Additional Supporting Courses (18 hours) 

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

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

Study Sequences and Plans of Study. While the regulations allow students 
very considerable latitude m their choice of courses, the Department urges that 
the student take ECON 201 , 203 and begin m the required mathematics 
courses as soon as possible Upon completion of ECON 203, the student 
should promptly take ECON 401, 403, or both, in the following semester, since 
these are intermediate theory courses of general applicability in the later 



course work. Majors should take ECON 421 (or equivalent) after calculus is 
completed ECON 310 may be taken any time after completing ECON 203 

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

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

Economics Honors Program. The Honors Program provides Economics 
maprs with the opportunity for advanced study in a seminar format, with 
faculty supervision of seminar papers and an honors thesis The Honors 
Program is a three-semester (9 credit hour) sequence which a student enters 
at the beginning of the last three semesters A student must have a 3 5 GPA 
in 30 hours of Economics to graduate with honors m Economics To be eligible, 
a student must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 30 in 
Economics and have completed ECON 401 and 403 The student normally 
takes ECON 395 in Spring of junior year The second course in the 9 hours 
sequence is ECON 396, Honors Workshop Students take ECON 397. Thesis. 
in their last semester.

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

Increasingly, geographers today use their combined methodological and 
substantive knowledge towards the solution of society's problems Many 
graduate geographers take 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 Development, Health and 
Human Services, and the Central Intelligence Agency They are on the staffs of 
the legislative research branch, the Library of Congress and the National 
Archives At the state and local government level there is an increasing 
demand for geographers in planning positions And in recent years more and 
more geographers also are employed in the private sector working on 
problems of industrial and commercial location and market analysis Teaching 
at all levels from elementary school through graduate work continues to employ 
many geographers each year Some find geography to be an excellent 
background for careers in the military, purnalism, law, travel and tourism, the 
nonprofit sector, and general business, others find the broad perspective of 
geography an excellent base for a general education For those interested in 
the future, the field has high potential for better understanding and planning for 
the economic transformation to a post-industrial, knowledge-intensive society. 
Most professional positions in geography require graduate training 

Requirements for an Undergraduate Major. Withm any of the general major 
programs it is possible for the student to adjust his/her program to fit his/her 
particular individual interests The mapr totals 37 semester hours In addition 
to the 37 semester hours, the geography major is required to take an 
additional 15 semester hours of supporting coursework outside of the 
Department The hours can be either in one department or in an area of 
concentration An area of concentration requires that a written program of 
courses be reviewed and placed on file by the Department advisor Supporting 
courses generally are related to area of specialty in geography Pass-fail

order and a student may register for more than one in any semester GEOG 
211 may be taken concurrent with, or after taking GEOG 201 GEOG 305 is 
prerequisite to GEOG 310 GEOG 310 is specifically designed as a 
preparation to upper division work and should be taken by the end of the 
junior year Upon consultation with a department advisor, a reasonable load of 
other upper division work in geography may be taken concurrently with GEOG 
310 Completion of GEOG 310 satisfies for geography majors only the upper 
level English composition requirement 

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

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

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

Urtan Geograptiy and Regional Development— Pro^/ities preparation for 
careers in planning and teaching Majors electing this specialty lake 
departmental courses in urban geography, industrial location, transportation, 
and economic geography among others and supporting courses in urban 
sociology, urban economics, urban transportation, housing and applied 
design, family and community development, architecture, and the urban 
studies program outside the department 

Environmental Analysis/Management and Pt\ysical Geography— ¥ot 
students with special interest in the natural environment and in its interaction 
with the works of man This specialization consists of departmental courses in 
geomorphology, climatology, and energy, pollution and water resources, and 
of supporting courses in geology, soils, meteorology, civil engineering 
hydrology, and botany 

Computer Mapping and 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, map, 
photo, and image interpretation, computer-assisted cartography, and 
geographic information systems Students concentrating in cartography are 
not required to take GEOG 305 and are limited to nine hours of upper level 
systematic geography courses Supporting area courses must be taken from a 
list provided by the Department All math programs should be approved by a 
departmental advisor 

Human and Historical Cultural Geography— Oi interest to students 
particularly concerned with the geographic aspects of population, politics, and 
other social and cultural phenomena, and with historical and locational 
processes in cities and in colonial settlement. In addition to departmental 
courses offerings this specialization depends on work in sociology, 
anthropology, government and politics, history, and economics 

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

All math programs should be approved by a departmental advisor 

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 of the field by 
linking the theoretical aspects of geography acquired in the classroom to the 
applied aspects operating in a working situation The internship program is 
open only to Geography luniors and seniors All interns must have the following 
prerequisites GEOG 201. 202. 203. 211. 305 and 310, An application form

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 in 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 times 



86 Behavioral and Social Sciences Departments, Programs and Curricula 



when philosophers, statesmen, and citizens studied the nature of government, 
justice, responsibility, and the consequences of government's action More 
recently, the study of politics has also emphasized scientific observations 
about politics Today, the discipline reflects a broad effort to collect data about 
politics and governments utilizing relatively new techniques developed by all of 
the social sciences 

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

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

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

Public Sector Employment. Within this broad category are advising programs in 
general public administration leading to careers at entry-level positions in 
federal, state, and local governments, public finance and budgeting, public 
policy analysis, and public personnel management Quantitative skills are 
highly recommended in this area, and majors are advised to select a strong 
substantive minor to complement their work in public administration. American 
politics, and public law. 

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

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

In addition, the department also offers strong programs in political theory, 
comparative human rights, environmental politics, women and politics, and 
urban politics 

Requirements for the Government and Politics Major. Government and 
Politics majors must take a minimum of 36 semester hours in government

■ Joint appointment with unit indicated. 

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

Students who are interested in the biological aspects of behavior tend to 
choose a program leading to the Bachelor of Science degree, while those 
interested primarily in the social factors of behavior tend to choose the 
Bachelor of Arts degree The choice of program is made in consultation with 
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, 
including 14 hours at the 400 level, must be taken PSYC 478 and 479 may not 
be included in the 35 credit minimum or used to meet the 400 level 
requirement Courses taken must include PSYC 100, 200, and two laboratory 
courses (PSYC 400, 410. or 420) 

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. 424. 440. 441, 442, 443, 444, Honors 430C, Area III: 
331, 333. 335. 431. 433. 435. and Area IV: 361. 451. 452. 460. 461. 462. 463. 
464. 465. 466. 467 

Supporting courses to supplement the work in 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 in the 
Psychology Department for advice and approval of a course sequence 
Students should consult the current Psychology Undergraduate Program Guide 
for a list of approved advanced math-science courses This guide is available 
in the Psychology Undergraduate Office (Room ZP 1141) 

Although a minimum of thirty-five (35) hours of psychology coursework is 
required for a psychology mapr. each and every psychology course taken by 



the major student must be counted towards the psychology major 

A grade of C or better must be earned in the 35 credits of psychology 
courses counted toward the major or a course must be repeated until a C or 
better is earned If the course is not repeated then another psychology course 
fulfilling the same 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 psychology 
are advised to take an additional laboratory course and/or participate in 
individual research projects Such students should consult an advisor for 
information about prerequisites for graduate study in psychology 

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

PSYC 331 and PSYC 431 

PSYC 333 and PSYC 433 

PSYC 335 and PSYC 435 or 

PSYC 361 and PSYC 461 

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

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

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

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

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

occupations in business and industry 

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

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

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

These areas of concentration can be combined to advantage or can be 
taken as part of a double major m con|unction with programs in other 
compatible areas such as economics, government and politics, psychology, 
business, etc This program versatility and the rich experiential learning 
possibilities of the Washington Metropolitan Area combine to make the 
Sociology curriculum a valuable career choice 

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

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

Three hours of Mathematics (Stat 100; Math 110, 111. 115. 140, 220 or 
their equivalents) are required of majors and are a prerequisite of SOCY 201 

The supporting course requirement for majors is 12 nours of a coherent 
series of courses from outside of the department which relate to the major 
substantive or research interests m Sociology These courses need not come 
from the same department, but at least 6 hours must be from the Division of 
Behavioral and Social Sciences The following are among those recommended 
by the Sociology Undergraduate Committee for majors, ANTH 102. CMSC 103. 
ECON 205. GVPT 100, 170, 260, HIST 224, PHIL 170, 250. 455. PSYC 100 
Further information about suggested supporting courses can be obtained m 
the Undergraduate Office (Room 2108. ArtSociology 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 of 
working in an internship volunteer position and doing some academic project in 
conjunction with the work experience (under the direction of a faculty memt>er) 

" 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 Library and Information 
Services 

Dean: MacLeod (acting) 

The College of Library and Information Services is a graduate program 
which draws its students from many undergraduate disciplines Although many 
of the College of Library and Information Services students have degrees in 
the social sciences and humanities, there is an increasing interest in people 
with diverse backgrounds— in the sciences, for example The continued 
influence of scientific advances, the variations in clientele and service patterns, 
and the constantly shitting 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 (unctions and 
responsibilities The library and information professional in the 1980's must 
have competence m many disciplines if he or she is to serve well in the 
information centers, urban areas, public libraries, and school libraries The 
College of Library and Information Services is a visionary school, attempting to 
produce people to fill contemporary needs 

The library science education program at the undergraduate level fulfills 
the State of Maryland's requirements for the Educational Media Associate 
Certificate, Level I This is the beginning level of educational media 
responsibilities The Associate is a professional person with introductory 
knowledge, understanding of and competency in media services, with the 
particular emphasis on the operation of a unified media program. Fifteen 
hours of undergraduate library science courses are offered through the 
College of Library and Information Services 

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

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

Kinesioiogical 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 know/ledge explored by this 
curriculum may be descnbed briefly as follows: 

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

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

behavior 

Biomechanics, exercise physiology, the theoretical bases and effects of 

physical activity, neuromotor learning and the psychological factors 

inherent in physical performance 

The quantification and description of performance and the relation of these 

factors to human development 

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

narrow specialist as well as the broad "Renaissance person" can be 
accommodated 

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

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

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

A maior portion of the teaching program of the Division is devoted to 
serving students majoring in disciplines not encompassed by the Division 
Some of this leaching effort is in providing the skills needed in support of such 
majors or programs Other courses are designed as ennchment for 
non-science students, giving them the opportunity to explore the reality of 
science without the technicalities required of the major 

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

the central office for coordinating the advising, processing and updating of 
student records for students not in the College of Engineering Inquiries 
concerning University regulations, transfer credits and other general 
information should be addressed to this office Specific departmental 
information is best obtained directly from the departments 

The records of students in the College of Engineering are processed and 
kept in the Engineering Student Affairs Office. Temporary Building 334 
(454-2421) Inquiries concerning Engineering curricula should be addressed 
there 

The Division is strongly committed to making studies in the sciences and 
engineering available to all regardless of their background In particular, the 
Division is actively pursuing an affirmative action program to rectify the present 
under-represenlation of women and minorities in these fields. There are in fact 
many career opportunities for women and members of minorities in the fields 
represented by the Division 

Degree Requirements 

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

B 39 credit hours which satisfy the University Studies Program as presented 
under Academic Regulations and Requirements in this catalog Courses 
taken to satisfy these requirements may also be used to satisfy major 
requirements Students who matriculated prior to Summer 1980 may satisfy 
this general studies requirement through the General University 
Requirement program All students who matriculated in the Summer 1978 
session or later, must complete six credits of English Composition 

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

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

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

College of Engineering 

Dean.- Dieter 

The College of Engmeenng offers four-year programs leading either to the 
degree of Bachelor of Science with curriculum designation in Aerospace 
Engineenng. Agricultural Engineenng. Chemical Engineering. Civil Engineering, 
Electrical Engineering. Fire Protection Engineering. Mechanical Engineering, or 
to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering with an Engineering option 
or an Applied Science option One example of the Bachelor of Science in 
Engineering is Nuclear Engineenng In addition, each of the foregoing degree 
programs may be pursued through the five-year Maryland Plan for Cooperative 
Engineering Education The engineering programs integrate these elements: 
(1) basic sciences, including mathematics, physics, chemistry. (2) engineering 
sciences including m.echanics of solids and fluids, engineering materials, 
thermodynamics, electricity, and magnetism. (3) professional studies in major 
fields of engineering specialization, and (4) general studies including liberal 
arts and social studies as part of the University Studies Program Each 
program lays a broad base for continued learning after college in professional 
practice, in business and industry, in public service, or in graduate study and 
research 

General Information. Increasingly, the boundary between engineers and 
applied scientists or applied mathematicians becomes less distinct The 
various branches of engineering similarly interact with each other, as technical 
problems become more sophisticated, and require a combined attack from 



114 College of Engineering 



several disciplines The engineer occupies an intermediate position between 
science and the public, because, in addition to understanding the scientific 
principles of a situation, he is concerned with the timing, economics and 
values that define the useful application of those principles 

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

Curricula lor the various engineering deparlments are given in this catalog 
to illustrate how the programs can be completed in lour years These curricula 
are rigorous and relatively dillicull lor the average student Surveys have 
shown that only about one-third to one-hall ol the students actually receive an 
engineering degree in lour years The majority ol students (whether at 
Maryland or at other engineering schools nationwide) complete the engineering 
program in lour and one-hall to live years It is quite feasible lor a student to 
stretch out any curriculum, this may be necessary or desirable lor a variety ol 
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 ol Bachelor ol 
Science (with curriculum designation) are outlined in the sections pertaining to 
each department in the College ol Engineering No student may modify the 
prescribed number ol hours without special permission Irom the Dean ol the 
College The courses in each curriculum may be classified in the lollowing 
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 lor one curriculum but oHered by another department 

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

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

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

Ireshman and sophomore years in engineering are designed to lay a strong 
loundation in mathematics, physical sciences and the engineering sciences 
upon which the student will later develop a professional program during the 
upper division (junior and senior) years The College course requirements lor 
the Ireshman year are the same lor all students, regardless ol their intended 
academic program, and about 75% ol the sophomore year course 
requirements are common, thus allording the student a maximum llexibility in 
choosing a specilic area ol engineering specialization Although the 
engineering student selects a mapr Held at the start ol the sophomore year, 
this intramural program commonality allords the student the maximum llexibility 
of choice ol interdepartmental transfer up to the end ol the sophomore year 

Admissions 

Freshman: Admission to the College ol Engineering is competitive lor both 
Ireshmen and transfers Applicants who have designated a major within the 
College ol Engineering will be selected lor admission on the basis ol academic 
promise and available space. Applicants admissible to the University but not 
to the College will be olfered admission to pre-engineering A Pre-engineering 
major status does not assure eventual admission to the College ol Engineering 
Because of space limitations the College ol Engineering may not be able to 
offer admission to all qualified applicants. The College Park Campus strongly 
urges early application. 

Transfer: Admission to the College ol Engineering is competitive lor transfer 
students Applicants who have designated a major within the College ol 
Engineering will be selected lor admission on the basis ol academic promise 
and available space Transfer applicants enrolled prior to Ivlay 1981 in an 
engineering transfer program in a Ivlaryland Community College, in a Northern 
Virginia Community College, a 3-2 program at a Maryland public lour-year 
college, or Irom the UMBC pre-engineering program will be oHered admission 
to the College ol Engineering under policies in effect at the time ol their initial 
enrollment in the transfer program at the sending institution All other transfer 
applicants must compete lor enrollment in the College based upon the criteria 
in ellect lor the semester during which the student wishes to enroll. Because 
of space limitations the College of Engineering may not be able to offer 
admission to all qualified applicants. The College Park Campus strongly urges 
early application. 



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 lamiliar with the provisions ol this catalog, 
including the Academic Regulations 

2 Required courses in mathematics, physics and chemistry have highest 
priority, and it is strongly recommended that every engineering student 
register for mathematics and chemistry — or mathematics and 
physics — each semester until the student has lully satislied requirements ol 
the College ol Engineering in these subiects 

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

4 A University Studies Program is required ol students who entered UMCP 
beginning in May 1980 The University Studies Program replaces the 
General University Requirements for students who entered in May 1980 
and thereafter Students who matriculated prior to that date may elect to 
satisfy either the General University Requirements or the new University 
Studies Program All students who matriculated m the Summer 1978 
session or later, must complete six credits ol English composition 

Basic Freshman Curriculum In Engineering. All Ireshmen in the College ol 
Engineering are required to complete the lollowing basic curriculum lor 
Ireshmen regardless ol whether the student plans to proceed through one ol 
the major lields designated baccalaureate degree programs or follow any ol 
the multidisciplinary non-designated degree curricula that are sponsored by 
the College,

advised to attend summer school lollowing their Ireshman 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 lall 
semester 

* Qualified students may elect to take CHEM 105 and 115 (4 cr hrs each) instead ot 
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 ol the degree requirements ol that department as well as the 
College For the specilic requirements, see the curriculum listing in each 
engineering department 

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

A maximum ol one-hall ol the degree credits (approximately 60-65 
semester hours) may be transferred Irom a two-year community college 
program 

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

Dual Degree Program. The Dual Degree Program is a cooperative 
arrangement between the College ol Engineering and selected liberal arts 
colleges which allows students to earn undergraduate degrees Irom both 
institutions in a live-year program A student in the Dual Degree Program will 
attend the liberal arts college lor approximately three (3) academic years 
(minimum 90 hours) and the University ol Maryland. College ol Engineering lor 
approximately two (2) academic years (minimum hours required — determined 
individually, approximately 60 hours)

Cooperative Engineering Education Program 

Program Director: Blair 

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

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

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

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

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

college located near your employment 

Although the atiove study-intern scriedule depicts the student interning for 60 weeks, the 

required minimum number is 50 weeks 

Students make their own arrangements for board and lodging while on 
their periods of internship Frequently the participating industrial company or 
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 in which the student attends 
school, he pays the regular tuition and fees assessed by the University, A $30 
fee is charged for each 10-week period of professional internship The 
professional intern fee is payable at the beginning of each intern period and is 
not refundable 

Instructional Televlalon 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 industnal 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 in engineering, 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 of the University 

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

Amencan Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics 

American Institute of Chemical Engineers

American Society of Agricultural Engineers 

American Society of Civil Engineers 

American Society of Mechanical Engineers 

Black Engineers Society 

Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers 

Society of Asian Engineers 

Society of Fire Protection Engineers 

Society of Women Engineers 

Engineering Honor Societies. The College of 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 criteria 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 of aerospace vehicles operating within and above the 
atmosphere Such vehicles range from helicopters and other vertical take-off 
aircraft at the low speed end of the flight spectrum to spacecraft operating at 
thousands of miles per hour during entry into the atmospheres ol the earth and 
other planets In between are general aviation and commercial transports flying 
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 
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 of technical specialities or disciplines Consider the high-speed 
flight of NASA's Space Shuttle The airflow over the wings, fuselage and tail 
surfaces create lift, drag and moments on the aircraft If the velocity is high 
enough, such as dunng reentry of the Space Shuttle into the earth's 
atmosphere, then the temperature of the airflow becomes extremely high, the 
air becomes chemically reactive, and heating of the vehicle's surface becomes 
a major problem The study of how and why the airflow produces these forces, 
moments and heating is called Aerodynamics. In turn, the motion of the aircraft 
or space vehicle will respond to, indeed will be determined by. the 
aerodynamic forces and moments The study of the motion and flight path of 
such vehicles is called Flight Dynamics. Of course, while executing this motion, 
the vehicle must be structurally sound, that is. its surface and internal structure 
must be able to withstand the severe forces and loads associated with flight 
The study of the mechanical behavior of materials, stresses and strains, 
deflections and vibrations that are associated with the structure of the vehicle 
itself is called Flight Structures. In the same vein, the motion of any aircraft or 
space vehicle must be initiated and maintained by a propulsive mechanism 
such as the classic combination of a reciprocating engine with a propeller, or 
the more modern 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 specific 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 of Maryland 
offers a rigorous and balanced education which includes all of the above 
disciplines. The goal of this program is to create professional aerospace 



116 College of Engineering Departments, Programs and Curricula 



engineers with an understanding of the physical fundamentals underlying 
atmospheric and space flight, and with the capability of applying this 
knowledge for research, analysis and design purposes Moreover, the 
physical background and design synthesis that marks aerospace engineering 
education also prepares a student to work productively in other fields such as 
energy and surface transportation 

The facilities of the department include three subsonic wind tunnels (with 
test sections ranging from 2 by 2 ft to 7.75 by 11 ft.), two supersonic tunnels, 
a hypersonic tunnel, equipment for the static and dynamic testing of structural 
components, and a flight simulator A computational facility with remote 
terminals located in the department provides access to the University's central 
computer system

Agricultural engineering utilizes both the physical and biological sciences 
to help meet the needs of our increasing world population for food, natural 
fiber and improvement or maintenance of the environment Scientific and 
engineering principles are applied to the conservation and utilization of soil 
and water resources for food production and recreation, to the utilization of 
energy to improve labor efficiency and to reduce laborious and menial tasks, 
to the design of structures and equipment for housing or handling of plants 
and animals to optimize growth potential, to the design of residences to 
improve the standard of living for the rural population, to the development of 
methods and equipment to maintain or increase the quality of food and natural 
fiber, to the flow of supplies and equipment to the agricultural and aquacultural 
production units, and to the flow of products from the production units and the 
processing plants to the consumer 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-two 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 engineering In addition, study programs in 
the areas of applied polymer science, biochemical engineering, and process 
simulation and control are available The latter programs are interdisciplinary 
with other departments at the University 

The departmental programs prepare an undergraduate for graduate study 
or immediate industnal 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 
engineenng required for improving and understanding chemical plant 
operation and the products produced, with the chemical sales and economic 
distribution of the chemical plant product, and with the general management 
and executive direction of chemical process industry plants and industrial 
complexes 

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

Civil Engineeiing Curriculum 

Civil engineering is concerned with the planning, design, construction and 
operation of large facilities associated with man's environment Civil engineers 
specialize in such areas as environmental engineering, transportation systems, 
structures, water resource development, water supply and pollution control, 
building foundations and dams, 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 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 techrtiques and 
prepares the student to incorporate new concepts that will develop during his 
or her professional career Further, the program stresses the balance between 
technical efficiency and the needs of society The graduate is prepared to 
enter one of the areas mentioned above, or he or she can move into new areas 
of specialization such as oceanographic engineering or the development of 
facilities for extra-terrestrial environments 

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

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

The technological problems and needs of society are becoming steadily 
more complex The engineer is the intermediary between science and society. 
To solve the problems of modern society he/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 human 
factors involved in the problem Finally, current problems frequently require a 
thorough knowledge of advanced mathematics and physics 

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

To go along with this freedom, the Department has a system of 
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 
curhculum

Fire Protection Engineering 

Professor ar}d Chairman: Bryan 
Associate Professor: Hickey 
Lecturers: Milke, Walton (p t ) 

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 ol evaluating and eliminating hazardous conditions 

The fundamental principles of fire protection engineering are relatively 
well-defined and the application ol these principles to a modern industrialized 
society has become a specialized activity Control of the hazards in 
manufacturing processes calls lor an understanding not only ol measures lor 
the protection but of the processes themselves Often the most effective 
solution to the problem of safeguarding a hazardous operation lies m the 
modification ol special extinguishing equipment The lire protection engineer 
must be prepared to decide in any given case what is the best and most 
economical solution ol the fire prevention problem His or her 
recommendations are often based not only on sound pnnciples of fire 
protection but on a thorough understanding of the special problems of the 
individual property 

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

The problems and challenges which confront the fire protection engineer 
include the reduction and control of fire hazards due to processes subiect 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 lire and to lacilitate the escape of occupants in case of 
fire: the design, installation and maintenance of lire detection and extinguishing 
devices and systems, and the organization and education ol persons lor fire 
prevention and fire protection

curhculum planning, guidance and counseling will be the responsibility of the 
"Undesignated Degree Program Advisor" m the primary field department At 
least one semester before the expected degree is to be granted, the student 
must file an 'Application lor Admission to Candidacy for the Degree of Bachelor 
of Science in Engineering" wi\U the Deans Office of the College of Engineering. 
The candidacy form must be approved by the chairman of the primary field 
department, the primary engineering and the secondary field advisors and the 
college faculty committee on "Undesignated Degree Programs " This 
committee has the responsibility for implementing all approved policies 
pertaining to this program and reviewing and acting on the candidacy forms 
filed by the student 

Specific University and College academic regulations apply to this 
undesignated degree program in the same manner as they apply to the 
conventional designated degree programs For example, the academic 
regulations of the University apply as stated in Pan 2 of this catalog, and the 
College requirement of 2 00 factor m the major field during the junior and 



Other Mathematical and Physical Sciences Departments, Programs and Curricula 121 



senior years apply For the purpose o1 implementation of such academic rules, 
the credits in the primary engineering (ield and the credits in the secondary 
field are considered lo count as "the Maior" 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 m 
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 of primary and 
secondary fields from the wide selection of courses related to environmental 
engineering given by the various departments in the College 

Englneerlng-Medlclne. 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 
tew examples of the role of engineering and technology in medicine In 
addition, diagnostic procedures and record-keeping have been greatly 
enhanced by the use of computers and electronic testing equipment There is 
a growing need tor physicians and researchers in the life sciences, having 
strong backgrounds in engineering, who can effectively utilize these 
technologies and who can work with engineers m research and development 

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

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

Options of the "B.S.-EngineerIng" Program. The BS -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 engineenng 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 engineenng 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 work in environmental 
engineering might combine chemical and civil engineering for his or her 
program; a student interested in systems and control engineering graduate 
work might combine electrical engineering with aerospace, chemical, or 
mechanical engineering 

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

Minimum Requirements. Listed below are the minimum requirements for the 
BS -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 take the designated or the 



undesignated degree in an engineering field until the beginning of the lunior 
year In fact, the student can probably delay the decision until the spring term 
of the lunior 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 Ivlaryland Plan for Cooperative Engineering Education

physics background could take the one semester introductory course. ASTR 
350. instead In addition ASTR 210 (Practical Astronomy) and two 400 level 
astronomy courses are required for the mapr 

Students maioring in astronomy are also required to obtain a good 
background in physics The normal required course sequence is PHYS 191, 
192. 293 and 294 along with the attendent lab courses 195. 196, 295 and 296 
In addition, the student would be required to take PHYS 421^22 or 410-^11 
Required supporting courses are MATH 140. 141 and 240 or 241 or 246 

The program requires that the student maintain an average grade of C in 
all astronomy courses; moreover, the average grade of all the required physics 
and mathematics courses must also be C or better Any student who wishes 
to be recommended for graduate work in astronomy must maintain a B 
average He or she should also consider including several additional advance 
courses beyond the minimum required, to be selected from astronomy, physics 
and mathematics 

Detailed information on typical programs and alternatives to the standard 
program can be found in the pamphlet entitled "Department Requirements for 
a B S degree in Astronomy" which is available from the Astronomy Program

requirements 

5 Electives to obtain at least the minimum 120 hours needed for graduation. 
(Students may wish to choose their electives to satisfy the requirements of 
another departments degree program, and. by so doing, qualify for a 
double major ) 

' Ttiese requirements are effective beginning with the fall semester. 1981 Majors in the 
program at the University of Maryland or at any other Maryland institution of higher 
education prior to fall. 1981 may choose to satisfy degree requirements In effect when they 
became Computer Science majors. Information is available in the Education Office of the 
Department 

Introductory Computer Science Courses. The Department offers a choice of 
courses, CMSC 103, 110, for students with little or no computer background, 

CMSC 103 is considered a terminal course for liberal arts majors. It 
provides an introduction to the use of a computer and programming in the 
language FORTRAN 

Non-majors (particularly scientists and engineers) who may want to take 
additional CMSC courses should take CMSC 110 instead of CMSC 103 CMSC 
110 permits students to pursue courses conducted in other languages (CMSC 
120 in Pascal) as well as numerical analysis courses (CMSC 460. 470, 471) 
Students who complete CMSC 110 must still take CMSC 112 to become 
majors 

Majors should take the CMSC 112. 122 sequence in their first year. These 
courses emphasize the use of formal techniques in computer science 
grammars, discrete mathematics, functional semantics, and program 
correctness 

Undergraduate Computer Science Courses. Beginning with courses at the 
200 level each student may arrange an individualized program by choosing 
areas of interest within computer science and then taking courses appropriate
