The College Park Campus 

Goals 

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

Universities in General 

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

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

With the explosion of scientific and technological knowledge in the eariy 
twentieth century the role of the university in Amencan 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 University of N/laryland College Park 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 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 woridwide 
University College (UMUC), headquartered at College Park 

Libraries 

The Theodore R McKeldin Library is the general library of the University, 
containing reference works, periodicals, circulating books, and other materials 
to support research and instruction Branch libraries include the Hornbake 
(Undergraduate) Library, the Engineenng and Physical Sciences Library, the 
Architecture Library, the White (Chemistry) Library, the Art Library, and the

book capacity of 200,000 volumes It features color video tape players and 
playback units, enclosed rooms equipped with instructor's consoles for the use 
of nonpnnt media materials, and wireless stereo headsets for tapes of lectures, 
plays, speeches, and music. The McKeldin Library supports the graduate and 
research programs of the University, and is also open to undergraduates 
Special collections include the Katherine Anne Porter Collection, the East Asia 
Collection containing the Gordon W Prange Collection of Japanese language 
materials from the period of the Allied Occupation of Japan, 1945-49; and 
Maryland related books and manuscripts The Libraries also contain U S.

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



Research Facilities 

The research programs at the University derive their existence and vigor 
from a faculty comprised of internationally recognized scholars and scientists. 
It is an advantage for undergraduate students to be aware of the University's 
research facilities as they plan their programs 

Active research takes place in every department on the campus. Among 
the exceptional research facilities are scanning electron microscopes, 
subsonic, supersonic, and hypersonic wind tunnels, laboratories for radiation 
research and biochemical reactions, a nuclear training reactor, an electron ring 
accelerator; complete laboratories for the dynamic studies of soils and 
structures: a unique facility utilizing satellite remote sensing data, a dynamic 
photomechanics lab. a precision encoder and pattern recognition device; a 
gravitational radiation detection system including a gravimeter on the moon, 
three retroreflector arrays on the moon, a psycho-pharmacology laboratory; 
rotating tanks for laboratory studies of meteorological phenomena, a linear 
accelerator, a high resolution spectroscopy facility; small groups behavioral 
research latDoratones; computer simulation and gaming facilities; computer 
graphics, remote sensing and cartographies laboratones. specialized sound 
chambers for audiology research, a criminal forensics laboratory, a computer 
vision laboratory; the Astronomy Observatory, a laboratory for plasma and 
fusion energy studies, and the Water Resources Center 

The College Park Campus also operates one of the largest and most 
sophisticated long-wavelength radio telescopes (located at Clark Lake, 
Southern California) 

In addition to these research facilities, the campus supports a number of 
organized research activities, many of which have received national and 
international recognition for the quality of their research work Among the 
mapr organized research units on campus are the Bureaus of Business and 
Economic Research, and Governmental Research; the Center on Aging and 
Centers for Automation Research. Consumer Research; Educational Research 
and Development. Family, Housing and Community. Industrial Relations and 
Labor Studies, Information Sciences Research, Philosophy and Public Policy, 
Productivity and Quality of Working Life, Renaissance and Baroque Studies; 
Study and Research in Business and Public Policy; Young Children, and the 
Engineering Research Center and Survey Research Center; and Institutes for 
Exceptional Children and Youth; Physical Sciences and Technology, and 
Research in Higher and Adult Education 

Investigation in agnculture is an important aspect of University research. 
The Agricultural Experiment Station, which has its headquarters on the College 
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 of 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 in the printed Schedule 
of Classes for the Summer Session and in the Academic Calendar in Part 1 of 
this catalog New freshman applicants who have met the regular University 
admission requirements for fall enrollment may begin their studies during the 
summer rather than wait for the next fall term By taking advantage of this 
opportunity and continuing to attend summer sessions, the time required for 
completion of a baccalaureate degree can be shortened by a year or more. 
depending upon the requirements of the chosen curriculum and the rate of 
progress 

Many new students have found that attendance during the summer 
sessions facilitates the transition from secondary school to college. Courses 
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 " The Maryland Summer Institute for the Creative and 
Performing Arts offers a series of programs in art, dance, drama, film, and 
music, and outstanding performers m 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 

For additional information write for a Summer Sessions Catalog, which may 
be obtained from the Administrative Dean for Summer Programs, College Pari<, 
MD 20742

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 "desen/ed" and because punishment for willful 
offenses affirms the autonomy and integrity of the offender The latter 
concept was well expressed by D.J.B Hawkins in his essay "Punishment 
and lyloral Responsibility" in 7 Ivfodern 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 merit and dement, 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 (eg 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 which 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 authorized in the rules must be taken 

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

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

8. The standard set forth here represents the minimal procedural protection to 
be accorded to students charged with most disciplinary 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 U.S. 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 Han/ard 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.

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 Anrtotated 
Code of MarylarKl. 

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" which is available 
in the Judicial Programs Office 

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

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

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

3. "Nor are racial insults or any other 'fighting words' a valid ground for 
disruption or physical attack ... The banning or obstruction of 
lawful speech can never be justified on such grounds as that the 
speech or the speaker is deemed Irresponsible, offensive, 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 



Code of Student Conduct 13 



set forth in Schedules I through V in Article 27, part 279 of the Annotated 
Code ot Maryland. 

15 This part and parts twelve and thirteen represent an attempt to give 
needed guidance to those wiho 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 lustice". depending upon the facts in each case The burden 
of establishing facts in mitigation should, of course, be upon the 
respondent 

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

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

See LaFave, Criminal Law Treatise p 453 

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

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

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

19 This language does not effect any change in previous policy concerning 
the powers of judicial boards. All board decisions, including those 
rendered by Conference Boards, shall be treated as recommendations, 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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



(a) a hearing officer may be appointed in complex or serious cases See 
pan 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 factcrs specified in part 11 to 
determine the permissible sanction to be imposed if the respondent is 
found guilty of charges For example, a student involved in a minor 
altercation might be charged pursuant to part 9 (a), but referred to a 
disciplinary conference, thereby precluding the possibility of expulsion or 
suspension for the alleged misconduct, 

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



14 Human Relations Code 



about cause and effect He may Itien determine himself to summon ttie 
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, 

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 
authonzed. 

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 Berrtstein v. Real Estate Commission 221 Md. 221 (1959). which 
established the "preponderance" standard for state administrative 
proceedings 

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

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

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

38, Information pertaining to prior findings of disciplinary and residence hall 
violations might be reported, as well as relevant criminal convictions. Prior 
allegations 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 troard 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 ol Tnjstees of the University of lllirmis 375 F 
Supp 95, 108 (N,D, 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,

Vice Chancellor lor Student Affairs. 

" See MacMin Fleming, The Price of 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 for 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.

16 Human Relations Code 



Article III Human Relations Enforcement Procedures 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(3) to increase his/her awareness of academic programs and course offerings 



at College Park. 

(4) to more frequently explore opportunities outside the classroom for 
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 Receiving an Academic Warning — Students who receive an 
"Academic Warning" at the end of any semester will be urged, in writing, to 
meet with an advisor prior to the beginning of the next semester Students who 
do not meet with an advisor will not be allowed to drop or add courses or to 
register for the following semester 

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 Wittidraw— 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 ol Classes. Students who are unable to locate 
an advisor or who have questions about campus advising programs should 
visit or call the Undergraduate Advising Center, Room 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 of Honors work 

fylany 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.

' Members of Association of College Honor Societies 

Election to Phi Beta Kappa 

Organized in 1776. Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest and most widely 
respected honorary society 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 l\/laryland 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 of 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 l^inimal 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 ttie above requirements does not guarantee eiectlon to Phi 
Beta Kappa. The judgment of the Committee on the quality, depth and 
breadth of the student's 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 
454-4203 

Commencement Honors 

Honors for excellence in scholarship are determined by the highest 2 
percent (Summa cum Laude), the next 3 percent (IVIagna cum Laude), and the 
following 5 percent (cum Laude) of the students of the preceding three 
commencements 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 Board for 
Higher Education Transfer Policies A complete text of the policy follows. 

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

Preamble 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Policies 

1. Public four-year colleges and universities shall require attainment of an 
overall 2.0 average on a four-point scale by Maryland resident transfer 
students as one standard for admission If the student has attended two or 
more institutions, the overall 2.0 will be computed on grades received in 
courses earned at all institutions attended unless the student presents an 
Associate in Arts degree. 

(a) Each public institution of higher education shall designate a person 
responsible for coordinating transferability to assist in accomplishing 
the policies and procedures outlined in this plan The State Board for 
Higher Education will support requests by a public institution of higher 
education to establish the position of transfer coordinator 

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

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

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

(a) Students from Maryland Community Colleges who were admissible to 
the four-year institution as high school seniors and who have attained 
an overall 2.0 average in college and university parallel courses shall 
be eligible for transfer at any time, regardless of the number of credits. 
Those students who have been awarded the Associate in Arts degree 



Admission Requirements for Undergraduates 31 



or who have successfully completed 56 hours of credil with an overall 
2 average, in either case in college and university parallel courses, 
shall not be denied transfer to an institution If the number of students 
desiring admission exceeds the number that can be accommodated in 
a particular professional or specialized program or certain 
circumstances exist which require a limitation being placed on the size 
of an upper division program or on the total enrollment, admission will 
be on cnteria developed and published by the receiving institution, 
which provides equal treatment for native and transfer students 

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

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

3 Information about transfer students who are capable of honors work or 
independent study shall be transmitted to the receiving institution 

4 Transfer students from newly established public colleges which are 
functioning with the approval of the State Board for Higher Education shall 
be admitted on the same basis as applicants from regionally accredited 
colleges 

5, (a) Credit earned at any other public institution in f^^aryland shall be 
transferable to any other public institution provided: 

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

(2) the grades in the bloc(< of courses transferred average 2 or 
higher, and 

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

(b) Credit for the CLEP general examinations will be considered for transfer 
only for scores at the 50th percentile, and above, of the combined 
national men-women sophomore norms The exact number of credits 
awarded, if any, in transfer will be determined by the same regulations 
that pertain to native students in the receiving institution The percentile 
needed to transfer credit tor the CLEP subject examination will be 
determined by the receiving institution Segmental/lnstitutional 
governing boards shall submit to the State Board for Higher Education 
by December 1st of each year data collected from the institutions

Procedures for Review of Aiieged Arbitrary and 
Capricious Grading 

Approved by Board of Regents: March 12, 1982 

Purpose 

1 . The following procedures are designed to provide a means for 
undergraduate students to seek review of final course grades alleged to be 
arbitrary and capricious Before filing a formal appeal, students are urged 
to resolve grievances informally with the instructor and/or the administrator 
of the academic unit offering the course Students who file a written appeal 
under the following procedures shall be expected to abide by the final 
disposition of the appeal, as provided in part seven, and shall be 
precluded from seeking review of the matter under any other procedure 
within the University, 

Definitions 

2 When used in these procedures 

(a) the term "arbitrary and capricious" grading means: i) the assignment of 
a course grade to a student on some basis other than performance in 
the course, or ii) the assignment of a course grade to a student by 
resorting to unreasonable standards different from those which were 
applied to other students in that course, or iii) the assignment of a 



48 Academic Regulations and Requirements 



course grade by a substantial, urnreasonable and unannounced 
departure from the instructor's previously articulated standards 

(b) the words "Day " or "Days" refer to working days at the University, 
excluding Saturdays, Sundays and University holidays 

(c) the word "administrator" is defined as the administrative head of the 
academic unit offering the course. 

Procedures 

3 A student who believes his/her final grade in a course is improper and the 
result of arbitrary and capricious grading should first confer promptly with 
the instructor of the course If the instructor has left the University or is on 
approved academic leave or cannot be reached by the student after a 
reasonable effort, the student shall consult with the administrator If the 
student and the instructor or administrator are unable to arrive at a mutually 
agreeable solution, the student may file an appeal within twenty days after 
the first day of instruction of the next semester (excluding summer terms) 
to a standing committee consisting of three tenured faculty members of the 
academic unit offering the course If the instructor of the course is a 
member of the committee, that instructor shall be disqualified and replaced 
by a tenured faculty member selected by the administrator 

4 The student shall file an appeal by submitting to the committee a written 
statement detailing the basis for the allegation that a grade was improper 
and the result of arbitrary and capricious grading, and presenting relevant 
evidence The appeal shall be dismissed if: i) the student has submitted 
the same, or substantially the same, complaint to any other formal 
grievance procedure: ii) the allegations, even if true, would not constitute 
arbitrary and capricious grading; iii) the appeal was not timely, or iv) the 
student has not conferred with the instructor or with the instructor's 
immediate administrative supervisor, in accordance with part three of these 
procedures 

5. If the appeal is not dismissed, the committee shall submit a copy of the 
student's written statement to the instructor with a request for a prompt 
written reply If it then appears that the dispute may be resolved without 
recourse to the procedures specified in part six. the committee will attempt 
to arrange a mutually agreeable solution 

6, If a mutually agreeable solution is not achieved, the committee shall 
proceed to hold an informal, nonadversarial fact-finding meeting 
concerning the allegations. Both the student and the instructor shall be 
entitled to be present throughout this meeting and to present any relevant 
evidence, except that the student shall not be present during the 
discussion of any other student Neither the student nor the faculty member 
shall be accompanied by an advocate or representative. The meeting shall 
not be open to the public 

7 The committee shall deliberate privately at the close of the fact-finding 
meeting If a majority of the committee finds the allegation supported by 
clear and convincing evidence, the committee shall take any action which 
they feel would bring about substantial justice, including, but not limited to 
i) directing the instructor to grade the student's work anew, or ii) directing 
the instructor to administer a new final examination or paper in the course. 
or iii) directing the cancellation of the student's registration in the course, or 
iv) directing the award of a grade of "pass" in the course, except that such 
a remedy should be used only if no other reasonable alternative is 
available The committee is not authorized to award a letter grade or to 
reprimand or othenwise take disciplinary action against the instructor The 
decision of the committee shall be final and shall be promptly reported in 
writing to the parties. The administrator of the academic unit shall be

The University Studies Program 

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

The University Studies Program has three parts The "Fundamental Studies" 
section of the program is intended to establish the student's ability to 
participate in the discourse of the university through demonstrated mastery of 
written English and mathematics. These requirements are to be completed 
early in the student's program in order to sen/e 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 obsen/ations 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 in both "Advanced Studies' categories require students to 
exercise critical thinking skills in the analysis of complex problems. 

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

For a more specific outline of the Program requirements and the approved 
courses which may be selected to meet those requirements, see Pari 4 of this 
catalog, entitled University Studies Program 



General University Requirements 

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

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

In meeting these area requirements, students may choose from among any 
undergraduate courses for which they are qualified The students may select 
either the pass-fail or letter grading option for these courses as outlined on 
page 51 , Students are urged to consult with academic advisors for guidance 
in determining which courses in each area best fit individual needs and 
interests 

Demonstration of competency in English composition: unless the student 
has been exempted from English composition, at least one course in the 
subject will be required. Exemption is granted if the student earns an 
acceptable score on the SAT Verbal (score announced annually) or an 
acceptable score on the English Advanced Placement Test (score announced 
annually), or by satisfactory completion of a similar writing course at another 
institution 

Students taking a course to satisfy this requirement may apply the credits 
toward the 30-hour General University Requirement but may not count these 
credits toward the satisfaction of the minimum 6-hour requirement in any of the 
three designated areas or the 9-credit upper division requirement. Credit for 
such a course may be in addition to the 12-hour maximum in any area. 

NOTE: Students who began baccalaureate study after May. 1978 must 
complete the English composition requirement specified in the Fundamental 
Studies section of the University Studies Program (see above). Only three 
hours of this six hour requirement may be used to satisfy General University 
Requirements 

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

to off-campus registration in the summer program of another institution 

Residency Requirements — Final Thirty-Hour Rule 

a. All candidates for 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. Included in these 30 
semester hours will be a minimum of 15 semester hours in courses 
numbered 300 or above, including at least 12 semester hours required in 
the major field (in curricula requiring such concentrations) 

b. A student who at the time of graduation will have completed 30 hours in

University Requirements or University Studies Program requirements. 
Approval will not be granted if there is extensive overlap between the two 
programs Students enrolled in two majors simultaneously must 
satisfactorily complete the regularly prescribed requirements lor each of 
the programs Courses taken tor 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

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

Courses may be added, where space is available, during this period and 
will appear on the student's permanent record along with other courses 
previously listed After this schedule adjustment period, courses may not 



50 Academic Regulations and Requirements 



be added without special permission of the department and the dean or 

provost of the academic unit in which the student is enrolled 

Departments may identify courses or sections of courses with the approval 

of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs which, after the first 

five days of the schedule adjustment period, shall require faculty or 

departmental approval for students to add 

A After this schedule adjustment period, ail courses for which the student is 

enrolled (or subsequently adds) shall remain as a part of the student's 

permanent record. The student's status shall be considered as full-time if 

the number of credit hours enrolled at this time is 9 or more, 

5, The drop period for undergraduate students will begin at the close of the 

schedule adjustment period and terminate at the end of the tenth week of 

classes during the tali and spring semesters, and at a corresponding 

period for summer sessions. During the drop period a student may drop a 

maximum of four credits However, if the course that the student wishes to 

drop carries more than four credits, the student may drop the entire course 

or, in the case of a variable credit course, reduce the credit level by up to 

four credits. Such a drop will be recorded on the student's permanent 

record with the notation "W" and will be considered to represent a single 

enrollment (one of three possible) in the course. This mark shall not be 

used in any computation of cumulative grade point average. Students 

wishing to withdraw from all courses must do so on or before the last day 

of classes. After this initial schedule adjustment period, a charge shall be 

made for each course dropped or added 

6 An official class list for each course being offered is issued each semester 
to the appropriate department by the Office of Records and Registrations 
No student is permitted to attend a class if his or her name does not 
appear on the class list. Instructors must report discrepancies to the Office 
of Records and Registrations. At the end of the semester, the Office of 
Records and Registrations issues to each department official grade lists. 
The instructors mark the final grades on the grade lists, sign the lists and 
return them to the Office of Records and Registrations 

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

8- 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 

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

10 In the cases of non-divisional students, the Dean for Undergraduate 
Studies shall assume the responsibilities normally delegated to provosts. 

Concurrent Undergraduate-Graduate Registration 

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

Undergraduate Credit for Graduate Level Courses 

Subject to requirements determined by the graduate faculty of the 
department or program offering the course, undergraduate students may 
register for graduate level courses, i e,, those numbered from 600 to 898, with 
the exception of 799, for undergraduate credit 

A student seeking to utilize the option will normally be in the senior year, 
have earned an accumulated grade point average of at least 3,0. have 
successfully completed, with a grade of B or better, the prerequisite and 
correlative courses, and be a mapr in the offering or a closely related 
department. The student will be required to obtain prior approval of the 
department offering the course 

Enrollment in a graduate level course does not in any way imply 
subsequent departmental or Graduate School approval for admission into a 



graduate program, nor may the course be used as credit for a graduate 
degree at The University of fi^aryland 

Combined Bachelor's/Master's Programs 

In November 1983. the Board of Regents approved guidelines for 
combined bachelor's/masters programs These programs will permit courses 
of study which lead to the award of both bachelor's and master's degrees 
following five years of study For the superior student, this option for a 
dual-degree program offers a wide range of exciting and challenging 
opportunities on the College Park Campus. 

A combined program is to be an integrated learning experience, not simply 
the completion of the required number of undergraduate and graduate credits. 
Since such a curriculum requires careful planning of courses in order to reflect 
the unique interests of a student, consultation with a faculty advisor is 
imperative 

The following conditions apply to a combined bachelor's/master's program; 

1 A combined degree program is available only to students whose academic 
performance is exceptional, i e , meeting stipulated grade point average 
requirements. 

2 Faculty evaluations and recommendations may be required for admission 
to a combined degree program 

3 Students may apply to a combined program only after the completion of a 
sufficient number of credits to permit the evaluation of academic 
performance, normally during the sophomore year and certainly before the 
complettion of 80 credits 

4. Students will work with faculty to develop a detailed academic and career 
plan which will include the final 60 credits of the bachelor's work plus the 
graduate courses to be completed for the master's degree 

5 Application for admission to the Graduate School should be made during 
the semester immediately pnor to the completion of the credits in the 
bachelor's program Admission to the Graduate School will be effective the 
semester after completing the credits required for the bachelor's degree 

6. The bachelor's degree requires a minimum of 120 credits; the master's 
degree requires a minimum of 30 credits. A maximum of 6 credits may be 
applied to both degrees 

7, Tuition and fees will be charged to the student in accordance with the 
student's admission status 

8 No more than one master's degree may be earned through a combined 
bachelor's/master's degree program 

For further information, contact the departmental directors of 
undergraduate and graduate programs. 

Identification Cards 

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

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

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

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

There is a replacement charge of $1.00 for lost or stolen registration cards 
and $7.00 for lost, stolen, or broken photo identification cards. (Note: the fee for 
brol<en cards applies to new photo identification cards issued after the fall 1977 
semester.) 

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

Academic Clemency 

Undergraduate students returning to the College Park Campus after a 
separation of five calendar years may petition the appropriate dean or provost 
to have a number of previously earned grades and credits removed from the 
calculation of their grade point average. Up to sixteen credits and 
corresponding grades from courses previously completed at the College Park 
Campus will be removed from calculation of the grade point average and will 
not be counted toward graduation requirements The petition for clemency 
must be filed in the first semester of return to the campus; approval is not 
automatic nor guaranteed 

Veterans Benefits 

Students attending the University under the Veterans Education Assistance 
Act (Title 38, US Code) may receive assistance and enrollment certification at 
the Registrations Office on the 1st floor of the North Administration Building, 
For current procedures regarding enrollment certification and computation of 
benefits for undergraduate and graduate students, consult the current 
Schedule of Classes 



Academic Regulations and Requirements 51 



II IS the responsibility ot veterans and dependents receiving VA benelits to 
notify tf\e certification officials m Itie Registrations Office of every cfiange of 
course or progrann, at the same time tfie cfiange is submitted to the University 
The following types of changes must be reported: credit level or grade option 
change, change of mapr or division or college, change of address, 
graduation, academic dismissal reinstatement actions, and intent to transfer 
from the College Park Campus 

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

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

3, Laboratory meetings require special preparation of equipment and 
materia's 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 lo make up this work later in the term, 

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

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

IVIarl(ing System 

1 , The following symbols are used on the student's permanent record for all 
courses in which he or she is enrolled after the initial registration and 
schedule adjustment period: A. B. C. D. F. I. P. S, and W These marks 
remain as part of the student's permanent record and may be changed 
only by the original instructor on certification, approved by the department 
chairman and the dean or provost, that an actual mistake was made in 
determining or recording the grade, 

2, The mark of A denotes excellent mastery of the subject. It denotes 
outstanding scholarship In computations of cumulative or semester 
averages, a mark of A will be assigned a value of 4 quality points per 
credit hour. (See Minimum Requirements for Retention and Graduation 
below.) 

3, The mark of B denotes good mastery of the subject. It denotes good 
scholarship In compulation of cumulative or semester averages a mark of 
B will be assigned 3 quality points per credit hour 

4, The mark of C denotes acceptable mastery. It denotes the usual 
achievement expected In computation of cumulative or semester averages 
a mark of C will be assigned a value of 2 quality points per credit hour 

5, The mark of D denotes borderline understanding of the subject It denotes 
marginal performance, and it does not represent satisfactory progress 
toward a degree. In computations of cumulative or semester averages a 
mark of D will be assigned a value of 1 quality point per credit hour, 

6, The mark of F denotes failure to understand the subject It denotes 
unsatisfactory performance. In computations of cumulative or semester 
averages a mark of F will be assigned a value of quality points per credit 
hour 

7 The mark of P is a student option mark, equivalent to A. B. C. or D. (See 
Pass-Fail option below) The student must inform the Office of Registrations 
of the selection of this option by the end of the schedule adjustment 
period 

8 The mark of S is a department option mark which may be used to denote 
satisfactory performance by a student in progressing thesis projects, 
orientation courses, practice teaching and the like. In computation of 
cumulative averages a mark of S will not be included In computation of 
quality points achieved for a semester, a mark of S will be assigned a 
value of 2 quality points per credit hour 

9. The mark of I is an exceptional mark which is an instructor option It is 
given only to a student whose work in a course has been qualitatively 



satisfactory, when, because of illness or other circumstances beyond the 
students control, he or she has been unable to complete some small 
portion of the work of the course In no case will the mark I be recorded for 
a student who has not completed the major portion of the work of the 
course The student will remove the I by completing work assigned by the 
instructor, it is the student's responsibility to request arrangements for 
completion of the work These arrangements must be documented in an 
Incomplete Contract, signed by both the student and the instructor, (See 
"Incomplete Contracts," below ) The I cannot be removed through 
re-registration lor the course or through the technique of "credit by 
examination ' In any event this mark shall not be used in any computation 
of quality points or cumulative averages 

10 The mark of W is used to indicate withdrawal from a course in which the 
student was enrolled at the end of the schedule adjustment period For 
information and completeness, the mark of W is placed on the students 
permanent record by the Office of Records and Registration The Office of 
Registrations will promptly notify the instructor that Ihe 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 

1 1 Audit, A student may register to audit a course or courses in which space 
IS available The notation AUD will be placed on the transcript for each 
course audited A notation to the effect that this symbol does not imply 
attendance or any other effort in the course will be included on the 
transcript in the explanation of the grading system. 



Pass-Fall Option 



1 An undergraduate who has completed 15 or more credit hours at the 
College Park Campus and has a cumulative average of at least 2 00 may 
register for courses on the Pass-Fail option during any semester or summer 
session 

2. Certain divisional requirements, major requirements or field of 
concentration requirements do not allow the use of the Pass-Fail option. 
Certain courses within a department may be designated by that 
department as not available under the Pass-Fail option It is the 
responsibility of each student electing this option to ascertain in 
conjunction with his or her dean, provost, department or major advisor 
whether the particular courses will be applicable to his degree 
requirements under the Pass-Fail option 

3 No more than 20 percent of the College Park Campus credits offered 
toward the degree may be taken on the Pass-Fail option basis 

4 Students registering for a course under the Pass-Fail option are required to 
complete all regular course requirements Their work will be evaluated by 
the instructor by the normal procedure for letter grades The instructor will 
submit the normal grade The grades A. B, C. or D will be automatically 
converted by the Office of Records and Registrations to the grade P on the 
student's permanent record The grade F will remain as given The choice 
of grading option may be changed only during the schedule adjustment 
period for courses in which the student is currently registered 

Incomplete Contracts 

1 , An "Incomplete Contract" is an agreement between a student and an 
instructor for the completion of coursework under conditions described in 
Item 9 of the section on the Marking System (see above) It is the student's 
responsibility to request that an "Incomplete Contract" be written 

2, Arrangements for the completion of coursework must be documented in an 
"Incomplete Contract" signed by the instructor and the student A copy of 
the signed agreement should be filed in Ihe Department Office, 

3 All coursework required by an "Incomplete Contract" must be completed 
by the end of the next semester in which the course is again offered and in 
which the student is in attendance at the College Park Campus II the 
instructor is unavailable, the department chairperson will, upon the request 
of the student, make the arrangements for the student to complete the 
coursework according to the requirements for an "Incomplete Contract" 
outlined above 

4 Exceptions to the time period cited above may be granted by the student's 
Dean or Provost upon the written request of the student if circumstances 
are deemed to warrant further delay. The new completion date must again 
be specified and agreed to in writing by the student and the Dean or 
Provost

Three proliciency examination programs are recognized lor 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 lor the 
purpose ol awarding proliciency credit, or of othenwise recognizing college 
level competence, achieved outside the college classroom Two types ol CLEP 
tests are available General Examinations, which cover the content of a broad 
lield 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 
satislaclory scores are attained 

Policies and Administration of the Examinations 

These tests are administered at CLEP testing centers throughout the 
country Written applications must be completed and on file at the testing 
center selected, usually not later than three working weeks prior to the 
intended testing date The University ol Maryland is a CLEP Test Center (Test 
Center Code 5814), giving tests the third Saturday ol the month 

The lees lor 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. 
Princeton, N J 08540 

Students who desire to earn credit through CLEP must have their official 
score reports sent to the Otfice of Admissions. North Administration Building. 
The 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 regularly 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 gam credit 

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

Credit will not be given for both 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 fonward a copy of the official report to the Office of Admissions.

Departmental Proficiency Examinations (Credit by Examination). College 
Park Departmental Proficiency Examinations, customarily referred to as 
"credit-by-examination", are offered in a number of University courses, and are 
comparable to comprehensive final examinations m those courses These 
examinations are given at a time mutually agreed upon by the student and the 
department Department offices will provide information regarding place and 
administration, type of examination, and matenal which might be helpful in 
prepanng 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 coilegiate 
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 No course may be attempted more than twice 

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

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 

Academic dishonesty is prohibited by the Code ol Student Conduct and 
may result in a severe sanction, including expulsion from the University, The 
Code defines academic dishonesty as follows 
a Chea((ng,lntentionally using or attempting to use unauthorized materials. 

informatfon or study aids in any academic exercise 
b Fabr/cafen.lntentionai and unauthorized falsification or invention of any 

information or citation m an academic exercise 
c Facilitating Academic Dishonesty. Intentionally or knowingly helping or 

attempting to help another to commit an act of academic dishonesty 
d Plagiarism. Intentionally or knowingly representing the words or ideas of 

another as one's own in any academic exercise 

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 prior offenses involving academic 
dishonesty The dean or provost will then consult with the student involved, 
and if the alleged academic dishonesty is admitted by the student and is his 
first offense of this nature, the dean or provost may authorize the department 
chairperson to 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 students 
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 divis'on concerned is appointed II within lurisdiction 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 serving as chairperson, and one student in that 
program 

The dean or provost of the instructional department will refer the specific 
report of alleged academic dishonesty to this ad hoc committee and the 
committee will hear the case The hearing procedures before this committee 
will in general conform to those required for student judicial boards The Code 
of Student Conduct provides that any act of academic dishonesty, including a 
first offense, will place the student in leopardy 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 at least three years from the date of 
final ad)udication 

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, in accordance with Parts 38. and 40 through 45 of the Code of 
Student Conduct

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 agncultural and aquacultural 
production units, and to the flow of products from the production units and the 
processing plants to the consumer Agncultural 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 sen/ice 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

Agronomy instruction combines the principles of basic sciences with an 
intimate knowledge of plants and soils This amalgamation of basic and 
applied sciences provides the basis for improved programs to conserve soil 
resources and improve environmental quality while providing programs for 
improved crop production to meet the ever increasing need for food 

The agronomy curricula are flexible and allow the student either to 
concentrate on basic science courses that are needed for graduate work or to 
select courses that prepare for employment at the bachelor s degree level as a 
specialist with park and planning commissions, road commissions, extension 
service, soil conservation service, and other governmental agencies Many 
graduates with the bachelor's degree are also employed by private 
corporations such as golf courses and seed, fertilizer, chemical, and farm 
equipment companies 

Agronomy students who follow the Journalism-Science Communication 
option are prepared to enter the field of science communication Opportunities 
in this area are challenging and diverse Students who are interested in public 
relations may find employment with industry or governmental agencies Others 
may become writers and, in some cases, science editors for newspapers. 
publishing houses, radio, and television Technical and professional )0urnals 
hire students trained in this field as editors and writers Also, this training is 
valuable to students who find employment in University extension programs, as 
a large part of their work involves written communication with the public 

Students completing graduate programs are prepared for college teaching 
and research, or research and management positions with industry and 
governmental agencies 

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

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 There are approximately fifty other universities 
which offer accredited undergraduate degrees in forestry 

Pre-forestry students are advised in the Department of Horticulture The 
University of Maryland has an agreement with Virginia Polytechnic Institute and 
State University (VPI/SU) and with West Virginia University (WVU) whereby 
Maryland residents accepted into forestry programs at VPI/SU or WVU will be 
eligible for m-state tuition at those universities. The student must remain 
enrolled in a forestry program. The student may transfer any time from 
Maryland to VPI/SU or to WVU,

Institute of Applied Agriculture — Two- Year Program 

The Institute ot Applied Agriculture, a two-year college-level program 
offered as an alternative to the four-year program, prepares students for 
specific occupations in technical agriculture 

The Institute offers three major programs with twelve specific curriculum 
options: 

I Business Farming 

A Farm Production and Management 

B. Agricultural Business Management 
II Ornamental Horticulture 

A, General Ornamental Horticulture 
B- Nursery Management 

C. Garden Center Management 

D. Greenhouse Management 
E Flonst Shop Management 
F Landscape Management 

G Interior Plantscaping Management 
III, Turlgrass Management 

A Golf Course Management 
B Lawn Care Management 
C Lawn Care Technician (a one-year option) 

The Business Farming program develops skills needed for farm operation 
or for employment in agricultural service and supply business such as feed, 
seed, fertilizer and machinery companies and farmers' cooperatives 

Options in Ornamental Horticulture prepare students for employment in or 
management of greenhouses, nurseries, garden centers, florist shops, 
landscape maintenance companies or interior plantscaping companies. 

The Turfgrass Management program concentrates on the technical and 
management skills needed to work as a golf course superintendent, to work in 
commercial or residential lawn care companies or in other turfgrass-oriented 
industries such as parks and cemeteries 

To enhance a students occupational experience, the Institute requires 
participation in a Supervised Work Experience program, usually completed 
before taking second-year courses 

A graduate of the Institute is awarded a Certificate in Agnculture specifying 
the students area of specialization Graduation requires the successful 
completion of 60 credit hours of a recognized program option, completion of 
Supervised Work Experience, and a 2 00 cumulative grade point average 

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

Geology 



Professor and Chairman: Chang 

Professor: Adier 

Associate Professors: Ridky, Segovia. Siegrist. Stifel. Weidner. Wylie 

Assistant Professors: Candela, McLellan, Nielsen 

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

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

Geological scientists find employment in government, industrial and 
academic establishments In general, graduate training is expected for 
advancement to the most rewarding positions Most industrial positions require 
an MS degree Geology is enpying a strong employment outlook at the 
present because of our mineral, fuel and environmental concerns At this time, 
students with the BS, 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

The Agricultural Experiment Station 

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

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



66 Division of Arts and Humanities 



nutritional deficiencies and means of remedying these on tfie 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 m 1856 specifially authorized 
establishment of a demonstration farm The Station is supported by federal 
funds under the Hatch Act as amended. State appropriations, grants and 
contracts with State and federal agencies and by gifts or other support from 
individual and farm-related businesses and industry. 

Cooperative Extension Service 

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

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

General administrative offices of the Maryland Cooperative Extension 
Sen/ice are located at The University of Maryland College Park (UMCP) and 
the administration of the 1890 Program (an integral pari of the total MCES 
effort) is from offices at The University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) 

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

The Maryland Cooperative Extension Service is known for its programs in 
agriculture 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. Working through organized 
groups such as homemakers' clubs, farmers' groups and cooperatives, 
agribusiness firms, watermen's organizations, civic and social organizations, 
governmental agency personnel and elected officials, the Cooperative 
Extension Service multiplies its effects It maintains a close working relationship 
with the Maryland Department of Agriculture and other State agencies and 
organizations. More than 22,000 volunteers in Maryland give generously of 
their time and energy. 

Time-tested, informal educational methods used are farm and home visits. 
phone and office conferences, and structured events such as meetings, 
institutes, workshops and training conferences Carefully planned teaching 
events include tours, field days, and demonstrations Indirect communications 
utilize circular letters, radio and television programs, newspaper anicles 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 at UMCP and the agricultural 
programs at UMES Through these efforts, local people are assisted in finding 
solutions to their problems 

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



To accomplish its mission, the Cooperative Extension Service works closely 
with teaching and research faculty of the University and with units of the 
University outside of agriculture, as well as state and federal agencies and 
private groups Short courses, workshops and conferences in vanous fields of 
interest are conducted at UMCP and 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 courses and programs for both 
majors and non-ma|ors Students interested in the traditional fields of the liberal 
arts will find many offerings in the Departments of Art, Music, Communication 
Arts and Theatre, English and the foreign languages. History, and Philosophy. 
Here they will study the artifacts and documents of the past and the present. 
reflecting both western and non-western civilizations 

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

Arts and Humanities encourages its students to take several approaches to 
the study of human cultural behavior Majors are available m Amencan, East 
Asian, Jewish, Linguistics, and Russian Studies Faculty representing vanous 
disciplines will advise students on such other-world area studies as Latin 
America Or a student, with faculty help, may devise coherent programs m, for 
example. Women s 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 students imagination and interest may 
suggest, are strengthened by courses from other divisions 

Many of the major programs in Arts and Humanities make excellent pre-law 
preparation In fact, with a judicious choice of electives in this and other 
divisions, students with any major in Arts and Humanities may prepare 
themselves for careers or advanced training in business, government, law. 
teaching, publishing, library work, and museum work, among others Internship 
opportunities 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, and 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 Staff in the Provost's office 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 It maintains 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 mapring m architecture and journalism will work 
directly with the staffs of the School of Architecture and the College of 
Journalism. During registration, students are usually seen on a first-come, 
first-served basis. On other occasions, if the problem is an emergency or is 
truly important, the Provost, deans, and advisors will stay as long as 
necessary 

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

The Division is comprised of the following academic units.

preparation in architecture and urban studies subjects at the undergraduate 
level, but who do not plan to pursue a career in architecture 

Pre-Archltectura. Through a selective admissions process, students are 
generally admitted to the baccalaureate programs in architecture in the junior 
year, or after completing 56 college credits. Occasionally, outstanding students 
may be admitted directly from high school. 

Prior to admission to the baccalaureate programs as juniors, students at 
The University of Maryland College Park (UMCP) may enroll in a two-year 
pre-architecture program coordinated in the Office of the Provost of the 
Division of Arts and Humanities Pre-architecture is open to any UMCP student 
and provides a program of study for the first two years which includes the 
basic requirements of the University Studies Program plus other 
pre-architecture requirements (ENGL 101, MATH 220, PHYS 121, PHYS 122, 
ARCH 170, ARCH 222, ARCH 242) Students completing the pre-architecture 
program may apply to the School by following the admissions procedures 
described below. 

Objectives of the Curriculum. The Schools basic mission is to provide 
general education and professional training and to develop the skills required 
by the graduate architect Its curriculum in architecture is organized around 
courses in architectural and urban design, architectural history and theory, and 
architectural science and technology Although its program is demanding, 
many electives — both in architecture and related fields and in the sciences and 
humanities — are also available. Courses in design studio involve the student in 
a series of design case studies, often drawn from actual situations in the 
surrounding environment Both science/technology and design courses utilize 
field trips, "hands-on" experience, and the expertise of visiting critics and 
lecturers as well as regular faculty. 

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

The graduate of the Master's degree program in architecture will be 
qualified to enter the profession of architecture in private practice, as an 
employee of a public agency at the local, state or federal level, or to enter any 
one of a number of other career paths 

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

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

Faculty. The faculty of the School staff the four main curriculum areas: design, 
science-technology; history-theory and urban planning-urban design All faculty 
members are active in professional practice and/or research in their respective 
areas of interest. For example, all design faculty members maintain active 
interests in professional practice, ranging from small residential work to large 
scale urban projects. Several members of the faculty have been retained as 
design consultants to local communities Many faculty design projects have 
been recognized through local, national and international awards programs 
and publications. History faculty are active in classical field archeology in the 
Middle East and North Africa, in research in American and modern architecture 
and in medieval architectural scholarship. Science-technology faculty are 
active in research in solar energy and hazard mitigation, research grants have 
been awarded by national agencies

Special Resources and Opportunities. The School is a member of The 
Architectural Research Centers Consortium, Inc, a group of over twenty five 
schools and centers whose objective is to increase the quality and quantity of 
architectural research Current research is in process through funding by 
agencies such as the National Science Foundation, providing research 
opportunities for faculty and students 

The School provides learning experiences through CADRE Corporation, a 
non-profit Center for Architectural Design and Research housed in the School, 



which provides an organizational framework for faculty and students to 
undertake contract research and design projects appropriate to the School's 
fundamental education mission CADRE Corporation projects include building 
and urban design, urban studies, building technology, historic preservation, 
architectural archaeology, studies m energy conservation, or other work for 
which the School's resources and interests are uniquely suited 

The School supports The University of Maryland Caesarea Project, an

students may participate here as they have in the past at Carthage (Tunisia) 
and Humayma (Jordan) as well as on the undenwater excavations at Herod's 
Harbor in Caesarea. 

A summer workshop for historic preservation is sponsored by the School 
each year in Cape May, NJ,, a designated national historic landmark district. 
Students may earn credit doing hands-on restoration work with the city's 
unique collection of Victorian structures and by attending lectures presented 
by visiting architects, presen/ationists and scholars

Accredited purnalism programs follow a policy of requiring journalism 
majors to take about three-fourths of their coursework in areas other than 
journalism and related forms of communication The College of Journalism 
follows this nationwide policy In practical terms, this means that a journalism 
major may include no more than 30 credits of journalism and communications 
(such as radio-television-film or speech, with the exception of the required 
speech course in public speaking) among the 120 required for the 
undergraduate degree If a student offers more than 120 credits for 
graduation, the number of journalism and communications credits may be 
higher, but only if the proportion remains about twenty-five percent of the total. 

Journalism majors may not minor in radio-television-film or speech.

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 



mapr siresses Ihe student's direct participation in the creation ot works ot art 

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

A curriculum leading to a degree in an education is offered in the College

Recognizing that dance combines both athleticism and artistry, the dance 
program offers comprehensive technique and theory courses as a fourxJation 
for the dance professions By developing an increasing awareness of the 
physical, emotbnal and intellectual aspects of movement in general, the

consciousness into a more meaningful v^de To facilitate tt>e acquisrtkxi of 
new movement skills, as well as creative and scholarly insights in dance, tf>e 
curriculum provides a structured breadth experience at tlie tower division level 
At tfie upper divison level tfie student may either involve himself in various 
general university electives, or he may concentrate his energies in a partkxilar 
area of emphasis in dance Altfiough 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 performarK*. choreography. 
production management, education or general studies (encompassing dance 
history, literature and cnticism) Students desiring a performance emphasis

Linguistics Program 



Professor and Director: Lightfoot 
Assistant Professor: Hornstein 
Lecturer: Weinberg 
Affiliate: fvlcKay 

The Linguistics Program offers courses on many aspects of language study 
and an interdisciplinary major leading to a B.A Language is basic to many 
human activities and linguistics relates to many other disciplines which include 
work on language 

Work on language has provided one of the main research probes in 
philosophy and psychology for most of the 20th century It has taken on a new 
momentum in the last 25-30 years and language research has proven to be a 
fruitful means to cast light on the nature of the human mind and on general 
cognitive capacity Several courses focus on a research program which takes 
as a central question: How do children master their native language' Children 
hear many styles of speech, variable pronunciations and incomplete 
expressions, but. despite this flux of experience, they come to speak and 
understand speech effortlessly, instantaneously and subconsciously. Research 
aims to discover how this happens, how a person's linguistic capacity is 
represented in the mind, and what the genetic basis for it is Students learn 
how various kinds of data can be brought to bear on their central question. 
how that question influences the shape of technical analyses 

The major program in Linguistics is designed for students who are primarily 
interested in human language per se. or in describing particular languages in 
a systematic and psychologically plausible way. or in using language as a tool 
to reveal some aspect ol human mental capacities Such a major provides 
useful preparation for professional programs in foreign languages, language 
teaching, communication, psychology, speech pathology, artificial intelligence 
(and thus computer work). 



Ma|or Requlrwnenta. Students obtain a B A in Linguistics by following one ol 
two tracks Grammars and Cognition" or Grammatical Theory and a 
Language" In each case, students take a common core of LING courses; 
LING 200. 240. 311-312. 321-322 Beyond this core, students must specialize 
by completing an additional 9 hours in LING plus one of the following: either 
18 hours from selected courses in HESP. PHIL and PSYC. or 18 hours in a 
particular language The specializations in detail are 

Grammars and Cognition 

LING 440 — Grammars and Cognition 

Two 300/400 LING eiectives 

PHIL 466— Philosophy of l^ind 

HESP 400 — Speech and Language Development in Children 

OR 

HESP 498 — Seminar in Psycholinguistics 

PSYC 440 — Introduction to Cognitive Psychology 

OR 

PSYC 422- Psychology of Language 

Three 300/400 eiectives in HESP. PHIL. PSYC or CMSC 

Grammatical Ttieory and a Language 

LING 410/411— Grammars and Meaning/Comparative Syntax 

OR 

LING 420/421— Word Formation/Advanced Phonology 

LING 300/400 elective 

Five required courses in the language of specialization, 

A course m the history or structure of the language of specialization, 

When possible, the language of specialization should be the same as the 
one used to satisfy the Divisional Foreign Language Requirement The 
specialization normally includes those courses which make up the designated 
requirement for a major in the chosen language. Special provision may be 
made for students who are native speakers of a language other than English 
and wish to conduct analytical work on the grammar of that language. A 
student may also study grammatical theory and English; the 18 hour 
concentration in English consists of courses in the history and structure of 
English to be selected in consultation with the student's Linguistics advisor 

For a double major, students need 27 credits in Linguistics, which normally 
include the LING courses for one of the two specializations

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



themselves 

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

Students in the program must meet the general degree requirements of the 
University and division from which they graduate They must complete 12 
hours of basic courses m Russian language normally through SLAV 104 or the

among SLAV 201, 202, 301, 302. 321. 322, 401, 402, and 403 or equivalent 
courses) In addition, students must complete 24 hours m Russian area 
courses on the 300 level or above These 24 hours must be taken in at least 5 
different departments, if appropriate courses are available, and may include 
language-literature courses beyond those required above 

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

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

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

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

In adhering to the above policy, it is the practice of the College of Business 
and Management to accept in transfer from a regionally accredited community 
college no more than 12 semester hours of work in business administration 
courses The 12 semester hours of business administration acceptable in 
transfer are specifically identified as three (3) semester hours in an introductory 
business course, three (3) semester hours in business statistics, and six (6) 
semester hours of elementary accounting. Thus, it is anticipated that the 
student transferring from another regionally accredited institution will have 
devoted the major share ol 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 Ottier Instttutions. 

The College of Business and Management normally accepts transfer credits 
from regionally accredited four-year institutions Junior and senior level 
business courses are accepted from colleges accredited by the American

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

Statistics Option. Statistics consists of a body of methods for utilizing 
probability theory in decision-making processes Important statistical activities 
ancillary to the decision-making process are the systematization of quantitative 
data and the measurement of variability Some specialized areas within the 
field of statistics are sample surveys, forecasting, quality control, design of 
experiment, Bayesian decision processes, actuarial statistics, and data 
processing Statistical methods — for example, sample survey techniques — are 
widely used in accounting, marketing, industrial management, and govemmeni 
applications An aptitude for applied mathematics and a desire to understand 
and apply scientific methods to significant problems are important 
prerequisites for the statistician 

Students planning to major in statistics must take MATH 140-141 
Course requirements for the lunior-senior curriculum concentration in the 
Statistics Option are as follows:

gives the student a firm basis in the business functional areas: marketing, 
finance, production, and accounting In addition it provides an in-depth 
knowledge in information processing technology, information processing 
implementation techniques, and management science and statistics. These 
skills furnish the student with the expertise to analyze business problems both 
qualitatively and quantitatively, to propose computer based solutions, and to 
implement those solutions There are many diverse employment opportunities 
available to graduates of this program The typical job areas include 
application programmer/analyst, systems analyst, and computer system 
marketing analyst Such positions are available m both large and small 
corporations, management consulting firms, and government agencies

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

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

It is becoming increasingly clear that Anthropology has been a definite 
asset in finding jobs m a variety of fields ranging from business to the fine arts 
Whether one goes on to a Masters or a Ph D , striving to advance the frontiers 
of knowledge concerning our species and the cultural process, or combines 
the anthropology B A with other specific knowledge and goes out as a city 
planner, development consultant, program evaluator. or whatever, is up to the 
individual At Maryland, we offer you a solid background, a base from which 
you can take off in a variety of directions 

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

The Anthropology Department has a total of five laboratories located in 
Woods Hall, which are divided into teaching labs and research labs At 
present, there are two physical anthropology labs one osteological research 
lab, and one "wet" lab for teaching and research in serology, histology, and 
anatomy These laboratories contain radiographic, histolic. and 
electrophonetic equipment, and the osteological lab is centered around an 
extensive research collection. There is one Ethnology/Linguistics lab which also 
doubles as a seminar room 1>ie Department's two Archaeology labs, 
containing materials collected from field schools of the past several years, 
serve as both teaching and research labs 

Anthropology Major. A student who declares a major in Anthropology will be 
awarded a Bachelor of Arts degree upon fulfilment of the requirements of the 
degree program The student must complete at least 30 hours of courses

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

Requirements for the Economics Major. In addition to the University Studies 
Program Requirements, the requirements for Economics majors are as follows: 
(1) Economic Courses (30 hours) 

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

In lieu of ECON 401. the student may take ECON 405. in lieu of ECON 403. 
the student may take ECON 406 In lieu of ECON 421. the student may take 
one of the following statistics courses: 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 lake ECON 421 may not also 
receive credit to 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 



86 Behavioral and Social Sciences Departments, Programs and Curricula 



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 I^^ATH 110 
(introduction to Mathematics) and MATH 220 (Elementary Calculus) is the 
minimum. Students completing MATH 220 or its equivalent have satisfied the 
mathematics requirements Students planning to do graduate study in 
Economics are strongly urged to take more than the minimum six-hour 
mathematics requirement 

(3) Additlorial Supportlf>g Courses (1S hours) 

Economics majors must earn credit for eighteen hours of upper division 
work in addition to the 30 hours of Economics courses listed above 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 majors, and 
any course in a department for which the prerequisites are the equivalent of 
one year of college-level work in that department In particular, second year 
college courses 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 

Study Sequences and Plans of Study. While the regulations allow students 
very considerable latitude in their choice of courses, the Department urges that 
the student lake ECON 201, 203 and begin in the required mathematics 
courses as soon as possible. Upon completion of ECON 203, the student 
should promptly take ECON 401. 403, or both, in the following semester, since 
these are intermediate theory courses of general applicability in the later 
coursework. 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 begin at any point 
after ECON 203. though there is some benefit to completing the intermediate 
theory courses first While the Department does not require any particular set 
of electives, students can benefit from giving some attention to defining 
sub-specialties within Economics of interest or of importance for subsequent 
career plans, and completing the several relevant courses to that 
sub-specialty Courses making extensive use of the computer include ECON 
398D (Computer Methods in Economics) and ECON 402 (Business Cycles) 

Students seeking advising should consult the Advising Office, 3115U 
Tydings Hall (454-5443) 

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 
majors with the opportunity for advanced study in a seminar format, with 
faculty supervision of seminar papers and an honors thesis. The Honors 
Program is a three-semester (9 credit hour) sequence which a student enters 
at the beginning of the last three semesters A student must have a 3 5 GPA 
in 30 hours of Economics to graduate with honors in Economics To be eligible. 
a student must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 in 
Economics and have completed ECON 401 and 403.

■ Joint appointment with unit indicated. 

Geography is an interdisciplinary field that offers a wide range of career 
options. The central question in geographical study is "where?" Geographers 
research locational questions of the natural environment, of social and 
economic systems, and of past human activity on the land Modem 
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 in locational analysis, including 
computer applications and mapping, 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 valued highly 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 stale 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, journalism, law. travel and tourism, the 
nonprofit sector, and general business, others find the multiple perspectives of 
geography an excellent base lor a general education. For those interested in 
the future, the field has high potential for better understanding and planning lor 
the economic transformation to a post-industrial, knowledge-intensive society. 
Most professional positions in geography require graduate training. 

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

programs it is possible for the student to adjust his'her program to fit his/her 
particular individual interests The major totals 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 See 
Professor Cirrincione. 1125 LeFrak Hall, telephone 454-2244 Supporting 
courses generally are related to the area of specialty in geography Pass-fail 
option is not applicable to major or supporting courses A minimum grade of C 
in each course is required for major and supporting cou'ses 
The required courses of the geography majors are as follows;

discipline in high school or for persons planning to take only one course in 
geography They provide general overviews ol the field or one of its major 
topics Credit for these courses is not applied to the major 

ATMS ol 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 

Urban Geography and Regional Development— Provides preparation for 
careers in planning, development, research, and teaching Ivlaprs electing this 
specialty take departmental courses in urban geography, location, theory and 
spatial analysis, transportation, and economic geography among others, and 
supporting courses in urban sociology, urban economics, urban transportation, 
housing and design, family and community development, architecture, and the 
urban studies program outside the department 

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

Computer Mapping, Cartography and Spatial Analysis— 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, spatial statistics, 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 — Of interest to students 
particularly concerned with the geographic aspects of population, politics, and 
other social and cultural phenomena, and with historical and localional 
processes in cities and in colonial settlement In addition to departmental 
course offerings this specialization depends on work in sociology, 
anthropology, government and politics, history, and economics 

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

All math programs should be approved by a departmental advisor 

Internship. The Department offers a one-semester internship program for 
undergraduates (GEOG 384 and 385) 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 from the undergraduate Geography

■ Joint appointment with unit indicated. 

The Department of Government and Politics offers programs designed to 
prepare students for government service, politics, foreign assignments, 
teaching, and a vanety 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 
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) Amencan 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 in international 
relations and comparative politics along with a strong substantive minor, such 
as economics, business, or resource management In addition, a strong 
background in a foreign language is highly recommended. 



88 Behavioral and Social Sciences Departments, Programs and Curricula 



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

In addition, the department al.<:o offers strong programs in political theory, 
comparative human rights, environmental politics, women and politics, and 
urban politics 

Requirements for the Government and Politics Major. Government and 
Politics majors must take a minimum of 36 semester hours in government 
courses and may not count more than 42 hours in government toward 
graduation No government course in which the grade is less than C may be 
counted as part of the major No government courses in the major may be 
taken on a pass-fail basis. 

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

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

All students majoring in government must fulfill the requirements of a 
secondary area of concentration, which involves the completion of 15 semester 
hours from approved departments other than GVPT At least six of the 15 hours 
must be taken at the 300-400 level from a single department 

Students who major in government may apply for admission to the GVPT 
Honors Program Additional information concerning the Honors Program may 
be obtained at the departmental offices 

The department offers students the opportunity to observe govemment 
agencies and political groups in action through a variety of internship 
experiences Only nine (9) hours of GVPT credit will apply to the 36 hours 
needed in the major In no case may more than 15 GVPT internship credits be 
counted toward the 120 credits needed to graduate. 

Academic advising is available daily on a walk-in basis in the 
Undergraduate Advising Office (2181J LeFrak Hall)

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, 420 or 440) 

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 are 

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:

452. 460. 461, 462, 463, 464, 465, 466, 467 

Supporting courses to supplement the work in the mapr for the Bachelor of 
Science degree must constitute a 15 credit area, including at least two 
lalxiratory 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), Advising 
appointments may be made by calling (301) 454-6691. 

Although a minimum of thirty-five (35) hours of psychology coursework is 
required for a psychology major, each and every psychology course taken by 
the major student must be counteo 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. Ample opportunity is provided for students to 
gain experience by serving as research assistants to faculty members in the 
department. Students interested in graduate study should consult an advisor 
to discuss various programs and their prerequisites 

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 
courses are abnormal (331 and 431) and personality (335 and 435). The 
courses in the 3(X) sequence provide general surveys of the field and are 
intended for non-majors who do not plan further m-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:

■ Joint appointment with unit indicated. 

Sociology is the scientific study of society, its institutions, organizations and 
groups Beginning with the simple interaction between two or more people, 
sociology examines the social organization of society from the development of 
social order to the causes and impact of social change Sociology s subject 
matter ranges from the study of the social factors that affect the self-concept 
and the nature of sex roles at the individual level to group processes, to 
organizations designed to produce products or provide services to the major 
institutions of society In the latter category the department has strengths in the 
study of the military, family, education, health, welfare, and political and 
economic organizations At the societal and world system level, the department 
looks at social movements, the basis of stratification or inequality, sources of 
instability, war, technology, and a number of other issues 

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, research and statistical skills, (2) a broad 
preparation for various types of professions, occupations, and services dealing 
with people: and (3) preparation of qualified students for graduate training in 
sociology, social work, law, and business Sociology also forms a valuable 
background for those interested in other fields or majors Courses in sociology 
can be used as preparation for careers in government and private research, 
urban planning, personnel work, human resources management, and many 
other policy-making and administrative careers. 

Areas of Specialization. The program of instruction in sociology offers course 
sequences in eight areas The strong emphasis on advising in the department 
allows the student to combine these areas into individualized programs 
directed toward the student's specific goals To implement this process the 
department offers the opportunity for specialization in one or more of the eight 
following areas Social Science Research Methodology, Social Psychology, 
Social Demography, Family Sociology, Organizations and Occupations, Military 
Sociology, Social Stratification, and Community 

Social Science Research Methodology. This specialization provides the student 
with strong statistical and methodological background and hands-on computer 
skills needed for all forms of social science research from evaluation research 
to opinion polls Additional courses from the Social Demography specialization 
prepare the student for employment in governmental organizations such as the 
Census Bureau or the National Center for Health Statistics 

Social Psychology. This option combines courses on the self concept, 
personality, collective behavior and small group analysis Such a concentration 
is valuable for helping occupations in business organizations as well as social 
welfare agencies 

Social Demography. Demography focuses on careful, objective and systematic 
study of the population, its size and characteristics, and how it changes in 
number, composition, and residence. This information and the skills that 
produce it are valuable for government or business to allow for planning 
effectively. 

Family Sociology. This specialty 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, aging and disability focus on family problem areas Along with 
the Social Psychology specialization. Family Sociology is a good preparation 
for human services, counseling, and research occupations 

Organizations and Occupations. This concentration is particularly useful to 
pursuit of careers in the business world. It involves theoretical instruction in 
formal organization, bureaucracy, social stratification and is applicable to any 



90 Behavioral and Social Sciences Departments, Programs and Curricula 



institution organized in bureaucratic form sucti as education, politics, business, 
military Another facet of tfiis specialization is the broad area of work roles and 
occupations, their meaning, development, professionalization, and place in the 
social structure 

Military Socioiogy. Very closely associated with the Organizations and 
Occupations specialty. 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 speciality area 

Social Stratification. Provides students with a macro view of society 
emphasizing the social definitions of age, sex, race as well as occupation, 
wealth, power and prestige on the classification systems societies develop 

Community. Coursework related to the organization and social structure of 
communities, both rural and urban, in present day society, addresses issues 
faced by local communities, the influence of community on social institutions, 
and the possible future of the community in the United States As with Social 
Demography, Military Sociology, and Social Stratification concentrations. 
Community is a valuable specialization for policy-making occupations 

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

Requirements of the Sociology Major. The student in sociology must 
complete 47' hours of departmental requirements, none of which may be 
taken pass/fail Thirty-two' of these hours are in sociology coursework 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 at 
the 400 level and an additional 3 are required at either the 300 or 400 level 
Required core courses for all majors are SOCY 100 (Introduction), 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 Three hours of Mathematics (STAT 100; MATH 110, 111, 115, 140, 
220 or their equivalents) are required of majors as a prerequisite of SOCY 201 
SOCY 202 follows SOCY 201 

The supporting course requirement for majors is 12 hours of a coherent 
series of courses from outside of the department which relate to the student's 
major substantive or research interests These courses need not come from the 
same department, but at least 6 hours must be from the Division of Behavioral 
and Social Sciences It is strongly recommended that the student work out an 
appropriate supporting sequence for the particular specialization with the 
departmental advisor 

Internship. Although internships are not a requirement for a major, students 
are strongly urged to consider the internship program offered by the 
department or through the Experiential Learning Office located in Hornbake 
Library Majors may receive up to six (6) credits in SOCY 386/387 by the 
combination of working in an internship/volunteer position plus doing some 
academic proiect in con|unction with the work experience 

Further information on coursework, internships, honors program, careers, 
and other topics may be obtained from the Sociology Undergraduate Advisor, 
Room 2108 Art/Sociology Building, telephone number 454-5036 

■ 47 hours are required tjecause 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 tie made by the

IMusic Education . The curriculum in music leads to a Bachelor of Science 
degree in education with a major in music education. It is planned to meet the 
demand for specialists, supervisors and resource teachers in music in the 
schools. The program provides training in the teaching of general music/choral 
and instrumental music and leads to certification to teach music at both 
elementary and secondary school levels in Maryland and most other states. 
There are two options The general music/choral option is for students whose 
principal instrument is voice or piano, the instrumental option is for students 
whose principal instrument is an orchestral or band instrument Students are 
able to develop proficiency in both certifications by taking additional courses. 

All students teach and are carefully observed in clinical settings by 
members of the Music Education faculty This is intended to insure the 
maximum development and grovirth of each student's professional and 
personal competencies. Each student is assigned to an advisor who guides 
him or her through the various stages of advancement in the program of music 
and music education

many of its exemplary features It is a five-year (10 semester) professional 
certification program which graduates students writh a Bachelor of Science 
degree in Special Education with full special education teacher certification in 
the State of Maryland and certification reciprocity in over forty other states. 
Students enter the program as Pre-Special Education majors and enroll in 
courses which meet University and College requirements At the same time, 
students take supporting coursework designed to provide an understanding of 
normal human development and basic psychological and sociological 
principles of human behavior 

Prior to formal acceptance as a Special Education major, all students are 
required to enroll in a special education introductory course (EDSP 210) which 
provides a survey of the history and current issues in special education. Upon 
successful completion of the introductory course and 30 semester txxjrs of 
requirements. Pre-Special Education majors apply for formal admission to the 
Department of Special Education by submitting an application with a statement 
of intent specifying their professional goals 

In Semester V and VI students accepted as Special Education majors take 
a two-semester sequence of generic special education courses and practicum 
experiences. These courses provide ttie student with a solid foundation in 
theory and practice related to the education of all handicapped children 
across a wide range of ages and disabilities 

At the completion of Semester V. students select one of the following four 
areas of specialization: 

1 Education of the Severely Handicappied (SH) 

2 Early Childhood Special Education (EC) 

3. Education of the Educationally Handicapped (EH) 

4. CareeriVocational Education of the Handicapped (CV) 

Course work in each of these four areas is designed to develop expertise

Housing and Design 



Protossor and Chair: Francescato 

Professors: Bonta, Kjaer 

Associate Professor: McWhinnie 

Assistant Professors: AnseW. Chen. Gips. Roper. Thomas 

Instructors: Dean. Ellis. Geddes, Odiand. Ribalta 

Lecturers: Erdahl (p.t.). Thorpe. Williams 

The Department ot Housing and Design offers programs of concentration in 
three areas: Housing. Interior Design, and Advertising Design 

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

Housing. The housing curriculum is designed to reflect the multidisciplinary 
nature of the field as well as the varied interests of housing majors 
Consequently, students under the close supervision and advisement of the 
faculty are given the opportunity to develop a program suitable to their 
interests and career goals Aside from the required housing courses provided 
by the department, students are recommended to take courses which will 
emphasize the development of methodological skills (e g statistics, computer 
programming), as well as an understanding of the political, social and 
economic environment in which housing is produced and consumed 
Graduates will be qualified for employment m the housing industry. 
governmental housing agencies, housing authorities, and consumer 
organizations. They will also be qualified to pursue a program of graduate 
studies in housing or urban affairs 

Interior Design. This program provides the student with fundamental concepts 
and basic professional skills required to plan and design interior environments 
These include not only aesthetic considerations, but also the integration of 
structural and mechanical building systems, the satisfaction of functional 
requirements, an understanding of the needs and motivations of the users and 
sponsors, consideraiions of cost, and compliance with codes and regulations 
Functional and imaginative applications of design skills to space planning and 
furnishing of commercial, institutional, and residential interiors are stressed 
Special courses include considerations of barrier-free design for nandicapped 
and elderly users, gaming simulation in design, and seminars in theoretical 
concerns A student chapter of the professional organization AS ID and 
internship opportunities provide contact with practicing professionals 
Graduates will be qualified for entry level employment with interior design firms 
and architectural firms Students with above average performance will be 
qualified to pursue graduate study After considerable experience has been 
gained in professional practice, some graduates will open their own firm or 
partnership 

Advertising Design. This program provides a foundation in the fields of 
graphic and visual communication. Although some of the media used in visual 
communication are the same as those of the painter and the sculptor, the 
purposes and methods of the designer differ from those of the artist in that 
utility is the focus of this endeavor. Visual elements such as lines, planes, 
volume, texture, and color are used to generate information and to 
communicate messages This process requires the acquisition of specific 
professional skills such as page composition, type selection, illustration. 
photography, design of orientation systems, and the use of complex 
technology in contemporary printing and electronic media. Students graduating 



f'om this program will be qualiled to begin a caree' as graphic designers and 
seek employment m publishing firms, advenising agencies, the film and 
television industry, the print media, the packaging industry, and in the graphic 
section of institutions and government agencies Students with above average 
performance will be qualified to pursue graduate study A student chapter of 
the professional organization I G.I and internship opportunities provide 
contacts with practicing professionals

College of Library and Information 
Services 

Dean: Walston 

The College of Library and Information Services is a graduate program 
whicfi draws its students from many undergraduate disciplines Altfiough many 
of ttie College of Library and Information Services students have degrees in 
tfie 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 functions and 
responsibilities Library and information professionals in the 1980's must have 
competence in many disciplines in order to serve in information centers, 
corporation information management, public libraries, and school libraries The 
College of Library and Information Services designs its program to meet 
contemporary information management 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 Rfteen 
hours of undergraduate library science courses are offered through the 
College of Library and Information Services. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

students who are vitally interested in the fascinating realm of spon and the 
human activity sciences, but not necessarily interested in preparing for 
teaching in the public schools The body of knowledge explored by this 
curriculum may be described bnefly 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 
vanous student interests may be combined on an interdisciplinary basis. With 
such possibilities available, graduates could reasonably set their sights on 
occupations in the paramedical fields, such as stress testing and human 
factors, athletic involvements such as trainers, scouts, sports publicists, or 
advance to further study in the therapies, as well as graduate work in physical 
education and allied fields.

Division of Mathematical and 
Physical Sciences and Engineering 

Provost: Kerr 

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

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

The search lor 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 in forms of research participation. Students in departmental honors 
programs are particularly given the opportunity to become involved in 
research. Other students too may undertake research under the guidance of a 
faculty member 

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

Structure of the Division. The College of Engineering is a major constituent of

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. Ail students who matriculated in the Summer 1978 
session or later, must complete six credits of English Composition. 

C. Major and supporting coursework 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 Engineering offers four-year programs leading either to the 
degree of Bachelor of Science with curriculum designation in Aerospace 
Engineering, Agricultural Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, 
Electrical Engineering, Fire Protection Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or 
to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering with an Engineering option 
or an Applied Science option. One example of the Bachelor of Science in 
Engineering is Nuclear Engineering. In addition, each of the foregoing degree 
programs may be pursued through the five-year Maryland Plan for Cooperative 
Engineering Education The engineering programs integrate these elements 
(1) basic sciences, including mathematics, physics, chemistry, (2) engineering 
sciences including mechanics of solids and fluids, engineering materials, 
thermodynamics, electricity, and magnetism; (3) professional studies in major 
fields of engineering specialization, and (4) general studies including liberal 
arts and social studies as part of the 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 
several disciplines. The engineer occupies an intermediate position between 
science and the public, because, in addition to understanding the scientific 
principles of a situation, he is concerned with the timing, economics and 
values that define the useful application of those principles 

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

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



ensure that courses are taken in the proper sequence. 

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

1 Courses in the University Studies Program Requirements. 

2 Courses in the physical sciences — mathematics, chemistn/, physics 

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

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

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

Sample schedules are available as examples of ways to fulfill graduation 
requirements in eight semesters Many students find that it is necessary to 
extend their schedule to nine or ten semesters 

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

freshman and sophomore years in engineenng are designed to lay a strong 
foundation in mathematics, physical sciences and the engineering sciences 
upon which the student will later develop a professional program during the 
upper division (junior and senior) years The College course requirements for 
the freshman year are the same for all students, regardless of their intended 
academic program, and about 75% of the sophomore year course 
requirements are common, thus affording the student a maximum flexibility in 
choosing a specific area of engineering specialization. Although the 
engineering student selects a major field at the start of the sophomore year, 
this intramural program commonality affords the student the maximum flexibility 
of choice of interdepartmental transfer up to the end of the sophomore year. 

Admissions 

Freshman: Admission to the College of Engineering is competitive for both 
freshmen and transfers. Applicants who have designated a major within the 
College of Engineering will be selected for admission on the basis of academic 
promise and available space. Different admissions criteria may be in effect for 
the various engineenng departments. Applicants admissible to the University 
but not to the College will be offered admission to pre-engineering. A 
Pre-engineering major status does not assure eventual admission to the 
College of Engineering 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. 

Transfer: Admission to the College of Engineering is competitive for transfer 
students. Applicants who have designated a major within the College of 
Engineering will be selected for admission on the basis of academic promise 
and available space Transfer applicants must compete for enrollment in the 
College based upon the criteria in effect for 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 for proper registration and for satisfying stated 
prerequisites lor any course must rest with the student — as does the 
responsibility for proper achievement in courses in which the student is 
enrolled. Each student should be familiar with the provisions of this catalog, 
including the Academic Regulations 

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

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

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

5. All degree programs in the College of Engineering require a minimum of 
120 credits plus satisfaction of all department, college, division and 



College of Engineering 117 



University Studies Program requireriients Students should be aware that 
for all currently existing engineering programs ttie total number ot credits 
necessary tor ttie degree will exceed 120 by some number Itiat will 
depend on the specific major and the student's background, especially in 
Fnglish and mathematics 

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

MATH 141 and PHYS 161 are prerequisites for many courses required in the 
sophomore year ENES 110 should be taken in summer school or the fall 
semester 

■ Qualified students may elect to lake CHEM 105 and 115 (4 cr hrs each) instead ol 
CHEIul 103 and 113 

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

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

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

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

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

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

At the present time the participating institutions are American University, 
Bowie State College, Columbia Union College, Coppin State College, Frostburg 
State College, King College (Bristol, TN), Morgan State University, College of 
Notre Dame of Maryland, St Mary's College of Maryland (St Mary's City). 
Salisbury State College. Shippensburg State University (PA). Towson State 
University. Western Maryland College. Trinity College (Washington. DC), and 
Xaviei (LA) 

Cooperative Engineering Education Program 

Program Director: Blair 

The Maryland Plan for Cooperative Engineering Education at The University 
of Maryland. College of Engineering, is a four and one-half to five calendar 
year program leading to a Bachelor of Science degree The academic 
requirements for students following the Co-op Plan 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 qualify for the baccalaureate degree under the Coop 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 maior 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 tjoth the student 
and the professional partner Also, the plan is readily adaptable to the needs 
ol the student transferring to the University from the engineering transfer 
programs of community or state colleges 

Students need only meet two criteria for entry into the Engineering Co-op 
Program They are (1) completion of the 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 
20/40 

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 during the summer and three semester hours in the evening 
during two internship pjeriods

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

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 Television System. An Instructional Television (ITV) system is 
now in operation at Tne University of Maryland Regularly scheduled courses 
(primanly graduate), as they are being taught, are broadcast "live" from studio 
classrooms at College Park to remote classrooms at governmental and 
industrial organizations Employees at these organizations see and hear the 
broadcast on large TV monitors and are able to "talk-back" to the instnjctor 
and to the students in 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 from the Schedule of Classes of the University. 

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

American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics 

American Institute of Chemical Engineers

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 industrial trial employment 
following the baccalaureate degree 



The Chemical Engineering Program emphasizes the application of basic 
engineering and economic principles — and basic sciences of mathematics, 
physics and chemistry— to process industries concerned with the chemical 
transformation of matter The chemical engineer is primarily concerned with 
research and process development leading to new chemical process ventures 
or a better understanding of existing ones, with the efficient operation of the 
complete chemical plant or its component units, with the technical services 
engineering required for improving and understanding chemical plant 
operation and the products produced; with the chemical sales and economic 
distribution of the chemical plant product, and with the general management 
and executive direction of chemical process industry plants and industrial 
complexes 

Because of this wide range of ultimate applications, the chemical engineer 
finds interesting and diverse career opportunities in such varied fields as

Civil Engineering Curriculum 

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

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

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

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

Apprenticeship programs allow qualified undergraduate students to work 
with research laboratory directors in the Department, thus giving the student a 
chance for a unique experience in research and engineering design. 

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

The technological problems and needs of society are becoming steadily 
more complex. The engineer is the intermediary between science and society. 
To solve the problems of modern society he/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/tier program 
and career plans with the advisor in order to get maximum benefit from the 
curriculum

Fire Protection Engineering 

Professor and Chairman: Bryan 

Associate Professor: Mickey 

Lecturers: DiNenno (p t ), Milke. Walton (pt ) 

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

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



modification of special extinguishing equipment The tire protection engineer 
must be prepared to decide in any given case what is the best and most 
economical solution of the fire prevention problem His or her 
recommendations are often based not only on sound principles of fire 
protection but on a thorough understanding of the special problems of the 
individual property 

Modern fire protection utilizes a wide variety of mechanical and electrical 
equipment which the stuOenl 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 subject to 
fire or explosion in respect to design, installation and handling, involving both 
physical and human factors; the use of buildings and transportation facilities to 
restrict the spread of fire and to facilitate the escape of occupants in case of 
fire, the design, installation and maintenance of fire detection and extinguishing 
devices and systems, and the organization and education of persons for lire 
prevention and fire protection
