The College Park Campus 

Goals 

Our objectives are simply stated to enrich our students, to encourage 
them to develop the harmonious ideals and fine relationships that 
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 m 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 Aspects of the ancient German university tradition were 
adapted and combined with the English model in the 1870s to form basic 
outlines of our present institutions Practical studies were grafted onto 
these more classically and theoretically oriented traditions by the 
agricultural emphasis of the land grant movement 

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

The Campus and The University of Maryland 

The University of Maryland 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 that united the State-owned institution at College Park and the 
professional schools in Baltimore, creating The University of Maryland 
College Park (UMCP) and The University ot Maryland at Baltimore (UMAB)

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 ot the 
University's research facilities as they plan their programs 

Among the exceptional research facilities on the campus are a 
computer vision laboratory, a scale model nuclear reactor tor research and 
training, a full-scale low velocity wind tunnel, several smaller hypersonic 
helium wind tunnels, computer-assisted cartographic laboratories, a 
comfort perception laboratory, a quiescent plasma device (O machine) for 
plasma research, satellite remote sensing facilities, transmission and 
scanning electron microscopes, laboratories for radiation and biochemical 
reaction research, complete laboratories tor the dynamic studies ol soils 
and soil structure, a photomechanics lab. a precision encoder and pattern 
recognition device, a psychopharmacology laboratory, rotating tanks for 
laboratory studies of meteorological phenomena, computer simulation and 
gaming facilities, specialized sound chambers for audiology research, a 
criminalistics laboratory, the Astronomy Observatory, a facility lor plasma 
and energy fusion studies, and the Water Resources Center The University 
also operates one ot the largest and most sophisticated long-wavelength 
radiotelescopes at Clark Lake in California, as well as a cosmic ray 
laboratory in New Mexico 

The College Park Campus also received a live-year. $16 million grant 
from the National Science Foundation to create a new Systems Research 
Center to facilitate research m artificial intelligence and computer-aided 
engineering The center complements an active program of basic and 
applied research in computer science supported by four separate IBM and 
Sperry Univac computer networks 

In addition to these research facilities, the campus supports a number 
ol organized research activities, many ol which have received national and

Studies. Study and Research in Business and Public Policy, Young 
Children, and the Engineering Research Center and Survey Research 
Center, and Institutes lor Exceptional Children and Youth. Physical Science 
and Technology. Philosophy and Public Policy, and Research in Higher and

Investigation in agriculture is an important aspect ol 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 otf-campus research larms (totalling over 3.000 
acres) to conduct research in the areas ot natural resources and lorestry, 
plants and crops, animals and poultry, economics and rural lite, 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 ol Classes for the Summer Session and in the Academic 
Calendar in Part 1 of this catalog New Ireshman 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 eases 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 in these media appear on the 
College Park Campus Facilities for most sports and an intramural program 
in several team and individual sports are available to the students For 
additional information write for a Summer Programs catalog, which may be 
obtained from the Administrative Dean for Summer Programs. The 
University of Maryland. College Park. 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 to bring about a lasting and 
reasoned change in behavior The underlying rationale lor punishment 
need not rest on deterrence or "reform" alone, however A just 
punishment may also be imposed because it is deserved" and 
because punishment tor willlul offenses affirms the autonomy and 
integrity ol the offender The latter concept was well expressed by 
D.J.B Hawkins in his essay "Punishment and Moral Responsibility" in 
7 Modern Law Review 205 

The vice ol regarding punishment entirely from the points ol view 
ol 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 ol animals, and the way is 
open for the totalitarian state to undertake the forcible 
improvement ol its citizens without regard to whether their conduct 
has made them morally liable to social coercion or not But merit 
and demerit, reward and punishment, have a different significance 
as applied to men and as applied to animals A dog may be called 
a good dog or a bad dog. but his goodness or badness can be 
finally explained in terms of heredity and environment A man. 
however, is a person, and we instinctively recognise that he has a 
certain ultimate personal responsibility tor at least some of his 
actions Hence merit and demerit, reward and punishment, have an 



Code of Student Conduct 13 



irreducible individual significance as applied to men This is the 
dignity and the tragedy ot 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 meaninglul sense includes the inculcation ol an 
understanding in each pupil ol the necessity ot 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 ol discipline is handicapped not merely in 
his education but throughout his subsequent lite In an age when 
the home and church play a diminishing role in shaping the 
character and value judgments ot the young, a heavier 
responsibility falls upon the schools When an immature student 
merits censure tor his conduct, he is rendered a disservice it 
appropriate sanctions are not applied 

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

3 Culpable conduct should include conscious acts posing a substantial 
risk of harm to others (e g throwing a heavy ob|ect out a tenth floor 
window above a sidewalk) It the act itself, however, is unintended 
(eg one is distracted by a noise while climbing a flight of stairs and 
drops a heavy ob|ect) 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 that allegedly occurred 
during their enrollment at the University 

5 Colleges and Universities are not expected to develop disciplinary 
regulations that 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 purview of this code 

8 The standard set forth here represents the minimal procedural 
protection to be accorded to students charged with most disciplinary 
violations Students who are sub|ect 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 419U 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 Harvard Law 
Review 629 (1974) 

10 Respondents in disciplinary proceedings may be directed to answer 
questions concerning their conduct Students who refuse to answer on 
grounds of the Fifth Amendment privilege may be informed that the 
hearing panel could draw negative inferences from their refusal that 
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 Garrity v. New Jersey 385 U S 493 (1967) See also 
Furutam v. Ewigleben 297 F Supp 1163 (N.D. cal 1969) 

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

12. Colleges and Universities should be a forum for the free expression of 
ideas In the recent past, however, unpopular speakers have been 
prevented from addressing campus audiences by students who 
effectively "shouted them down " Both Yale and Stanford Universities 
have treated such actions (which are to be distinguished from minor 
and occasional heckling) as serious disciplinary violations See the 
"Report from the Committee on Freedom of Expression at Yale 
University" 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 m.iy with to permit some symbolic dissent wifhm a 
building but oulside the meeting room, tor example, a single picket 
or a distributor ol handbills" 

2 "|A| member of the audience may protest m a silent, symbolic 
fashion, for example, by wearing a black arm band More active 
lorms of protest may be tolerated such as briefly booing, clapping 
hands or heckling But any disruptive activity must stop land not be 
repeatedl when the chair or an appropriate University official 
requests silence 

3 "Nor are racial insults or any other lighting 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 ol published regulations that have been reviewed and 
approved by the Vice Chancellor shall be available tor public 
inspection during normal business hours in the Judicial Programs 
Of lice 

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

15 This part and parts 12 and 13 represent an attempt to give needed 
guidance to those who are assessing penalties Moreover, the 
direction of the guidance is toward imposition of more severe 
disciplinary sanctions in serious cases Nonetheless, the language 
concerning "mitigating factors" is broad enough to give 
decisionmakers considerable leeway to "do justice", depending upon 
the facts in each case The burden of establishing lacts 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, C419 
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 ot 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 Moreover, confirmation procedures will give 
committee members direct contact with board members and will also 



14 Code of Student Conduct 



allow the committee to exercise more control over the quality ot 
Judicial Board decisions 

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

25 It could be a public embarrassment tor 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 trom any violation of any law (e g . New 
York makes it a criminal misdeameanor for anyone "to dance 
continuously m 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 |ust withdrawn from the University ) 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The conference procedure is designed to reduce the steady growth 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 loo 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 



tor 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 that 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 that might 
result in any lorm of separation from the University Accordingly, the 
procedure appears to meet or exceed the due process requirements 
set forth by the United States Supreme Court for cases involving 
suspensions of ten days or less In Goss v Lopez the Court held 

we stop short of construing the Due Process Clause to require, 
countrywide, that hearings m 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 m each 
such case even truncated tnal-type procedures might well 
overwhelm administrative facilities in many places and. by diverting 
resources, cost more than it would save m educational 
effectiveness Moreover, further formalizing the suspension 
process and escalating its formality and adversary nature may not 
only make it too costly as a regular disciplinary tool but also 
destroy its effectiveness as part of the teaching process 

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

30 The case file consists of materials that 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 m which 
complainants or respondents were unable to present an effective case 
due to the indifference and lethargy of potential witnesses A student 
who refuses to respond to a subpoena may be charged with a violation 
of part 9(n) of the code 

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

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

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

34 See Bernstein v Real Estate Commission 22 : 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 ol disciplinary and residence 
hall violations might be reported, as well as relevant criminal 
convictions Prior allegations of misconduct should not be disclosed 



Human Relations Code 15 



39 A disciplinary hearing at the University is not analogous to a criminal 
trial The presiding otlicer and the board advisor are authorized to 
exercise active control over the proceedings in order to elicit relevant 
tacts and to prevent the harassnn ition ot witnesses No 
party or representative may use threatening or abusive language, 
engage In excessive argumentation, interrupt the proceedings with 
redundant or trivolous objections, or otherwise disrupt the hearing 

Students have not been determined to have a constitutional right to full 
legal representation m University disciplinary hearings The privilege ol 
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 ol others should 
be avoided if the identities of the specific offenders can be readily 
ascertained 

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

42 Leaders or spokesmen need not be officially designated or elected 
For example, if a group or organization accepted or acquiesced m the 
act or statement ot 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 that 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 that do not give deference (i.e., a presumption of 
validity) to lower board decisions will distort the entire disciplinary 
system Respondents would be encouraged to "test their strategy" 
and "perfect their technique" before lower boards, since the matter 
would simply be heard again before a "real" board with final authority. 

Lower board members usually have the best access to the evidence, 
including an opportunity to observe the witnesses and to |udge 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 that 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 
Trustees of the University ol Illinois 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 lor 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 m the 
next

Article III Human Relations Enforcement Procedures 

A In order to identify policies or practices that may reflect discrimination, 
the Senate Adiunct Committee on Human Relations may request the 
Office of Human Relations Programs to conduct periodic review ol the 
operation of any unit of the campus Units shall provide the information 
necessary lor 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 
alter specific authorization of the chancellor In the event that the 
chancellor fails to authorize an investigation withm a reasonable time 
of the request by the Senate Adjunct Committee on Human Relations, 
the chair 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 that may reflect 
discrimination prohibited by this code or that may conflict with any 
other campus policy concerning human relations or with the Campus 
Affirmative Action Plan, and shall call these to the attention ol the 
appropriate officials ol the unit involved and recommend appropriate 
action Those subiect to allegations of discrimination shall be afforded 
all the protections ol due process The otlice shall endeavor by 
negotiation to eliminate the alleged discrimination Where such efforts 
fail, the otlice may on its own motion report the matter to the 
chancellor and to the Senate Adiunct Committee on Human Relations 
Documentation ol the recommendations by the office in all such cases 
shall be maintained on file by the ollice

interpret, often enrich, their perceptions of "being in college " With its 
emphasis on decision-making, planning, constructive action, 
advising highlights the connections between coursework and career, 
between learning and doing, between accepting advice and accepting 
respon

offerings at College Park,

intellectual and cultural development, 

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

relationship to successful planning

needs, this meeting may occur before or after reinstatement is granted; in 
no case, however, may a reinstated student complete registration until the 
fact of this meeting has been acknowledged /recorded by the advisor 

Students Who Withdraw. Given circumstances deemed appropriate by the 
Office of 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

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

available to them At both academic levels — college and department — at 
least one person had been designated to coordinate advising A list of 
these persons, providing name, room number, and telephone extension is

* Members ol Association ol College Honor Societies 

Election to Phi Beta Kappa 

Organized in 1776. Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest and most widely 
respected academic 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 Election is 
held only once a year, in the spring semester 

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 Maryland Gamma Chapter (that is. faculty 
members who are members of Phi Beta Kappa) 

Requirements for consideration include the following 

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

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

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 ol 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 Minimal 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 m a narrow range ol courses 

At least one laboratory course in the natural sciences is desirable 
Harder courses will count more than easy ones and regular grades are 
prelerable to pass fail In the social sciences and the humanities, 
some traditional courses that 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 |umor year instead of the semester m which they are 
graduated They must have at least a 3 75 grade point average, and 
fulfill the same distribution requirements as seniors 

Meeting the above requirements does not guarantee election to Phi 
Beta Kappa. The judgment of the Committee on the quality, depth. 



Administrative Offices 29 



and breadth of the student's record is the deciding factor in every 
case. 

Students who are m doubt about equivalency examinations in math and 
loreign language or about what courses are counted as liberal should visit 
the Phi Beta Kappa Office. Room 2126. South Administration Building, or 
telephone 454-5439 

Commencement Honors 

Honors tor excellence in scholarship are determined by the highest two 
percent (Summa cum Laude). the next three percent (Magna cum Laude). 



and the following live percent (cum Laude) of the students ol the preceding 
three commencements of each degree-granting unit To be eligible for this 
recognition, a total of at least sixty semester credits earned at The 
University of Maryland is required Ot these sixty credits, at least thirty 
credits must have been earned at the College Park Campus The 
computation ol the cumulative grade point average does not include 
grades for courses taken during the last semester of registration before

the sixty-hour requirement No student with a grade point average less than 
3 000 will be considered

Requirements 



Admission Requirements for 
Undergraduates 

Fall 1987 and Spring 1988 

The University of Maryland is a publicly-supported land grant institution 
dedicated primarily to the educational needs ot Maryland residents Within 
its responsibilities as a State facility, the University attracts a cosmopolitan 
student body and each year offers admission to a number of promising 
men and women from other states and jurisdictions Currently, fifty states, 
the District of Columbia, two territories, and 100 foreign countries are 
represented in the undergraduate population Admissions policies for the 
upcoming semesters are determined by the Board of Regents 

Freshman Admissions Criteria: 

The University of Maryland College Park seeks to enroll students who 
demonstrate the potential for academic success. That potential is typically 
assessed by examination of high school course work and SAT scores In 
general, all entering students should have completed four years of high 
school English, three years of history or social science; two years of 
science, both of which will involve laboratory work; and two years of 
mathematics courses equivalent at least to Algebra I and Plane Geometry 

Top priority is given to those students with the most outstanding 
credentials, the University maintains a competitive admissions policy In 
fact, students are guaranteed admission if they meet preferred standards, 
which generally require a combined SAT score of 1000 and a 3 high 
school grade point average This does not mean that SAT's and GPA's are 
the sole criteria for admission, and students with accomplishments in other 
realms, eg , fine arts, leadership, athletics, should make this information 
available to the Admissions Office. 

To be helpful in your thinking about your chances for admission to the 
College Park Campus, a profile of students enrolled in the fall 1986 
freshman class is provided

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 for Higher Education on November 1, 1979. In view of the Board's 
sensitivity to the need of the institutions and segment boards to have 
sufficient lead time to make these policies operational, the new policies 
shall be effective and applicable to students enrolling in Maryland's 
public postsecondary education institutions in fall, 1980, and thereafter. 
At that time they will supersede SBHE student transfer policies in effect 
since 1972. 

Preamble 

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



i he Intended prim ipal benefactor is the student, who is best served by 
urrenl information about programs and protected by lirm arrangements 
among the public segments ol higher • I iryland that permit him 

to plan a total degree program Irom the outset With successful academic 
perlormance, he or she can make ui progress even though 

transfer is involvi isures ol the effectiveness ol the plan is 

maximum transferability of college level credits within the parameters ol 
this agreement Essentially, transfer and native students are to be 
governed by the same academic rules and regulations 

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

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

The dynamics ol higher education preclude one-and-lor-all time 
curricula and perpetual grading and retention system? However, within the 
general structure ot this plan there is opportunity lor continual updating ol 
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 lor 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 ot the transler 
student; and (4) to provide a system for appeals 

Policies 

1 Public four-year colleges and universities shall require attainment of an 
overall 2 average on a four-point scale by Maryland resident transler 
students as one standard for admission If the student has attended 
two or more institutions, the overall 2 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 lor 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 ot higher education to establish the position of 
transfer coordinator

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 ot improving the

(a) Students Irom Maryland Community Colleges who were admissible 
to the four-year institution as high school seniors and who have

number of credits Those students who have been awarded the 
Associate in Arts degree or who have successfully completed fifty- 
six hours of credit with an overall 2.0 average in college and 
university parallel courses m either case 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 that require a limitation being placed on the 
size ot an upper division program or on the total enrollment, 
admission will be on criteria developed and published by the 
receiving institution, which provides equal treatment for native and 
transfer students. 

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

generic term "general education " General education requirements 
represent a faculty's definition of the knowledge, awarenesses 3nd skills 
that all graduates should possess before that faculty will give its consent to 
the awarding of a degree General education is that portion of the degree 
requirements in which the entire faculty has a concern 

The University Studies Program is the set of general education 
requirements at the University of Maryland, College Park These 
requirements are effective for students entering in May. 1980. and 
thereafter with eight or fewer credits Irom this or any other college They 
are intended to provide students with the intellectual skills and conceptual 
background basic to an understanding ot 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 Those requirements are to be 
completed early in the student's program in order to serve as a foundation 
for subsequent work 

The "Distributive Studies requirement is intended, through study n 
particular disciplines, to acquaint students with the different ways ot 



Academic Regulations and Requirements 53 



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 lourth category, "History and Culture," includes courses 
that lead to the consideration o( historical and cultural ditterences and the 
relationship of our own society to those ol other times and places 

In tullilling "Distributive Studies" requirements, students will have gained 
some experience ot the way in which scholars in dilferent kinds ol 
disciplines make and organize observations about the world and arrive at 
general statements It is the purpose ol "Advanced Studies" courses to 
show how these dilterent intellectual approaches compare with each other 
or may be used in complementary ways to analyze and solve problems 
"Development ot Knowledge" courses deal with the basis upon which 
people who use these dilterent approaches claim to know something and 
the dilterent kinds ol insights to which these intellectual strategies lead 
"Analysis ot Human Problems" courses consider these matters in terms of 
specitic cultural, social, scientific or aesthetic problems which may be 
approached trom several points of view 

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 maior, 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 
Part 4 ot this catalog, entitled University Studies Program 



General University Requirements 

Students who completed at least nine credits at any college prior to 
Way, 1980, may elect to complete these requirements rather than the 
University Studies Program requirements (see above) 

The General University requirements consist of thirty semester hours of 
credit distributed among the three areas listed below At least six hours 
must be taken in each area At least nine of the thirty hours must be taken 
at the 300 level or above None of the thirty hours may be counted toward 
published departmental or college requirements for a degree. Area A: six 
to twelve hours elected in the Colleges of: Agriculture, Life Sciences; 
Computer, Mathematical and Physical Sciences, and Engineering Area B: 
six to twelve hours in the Colleges of Behavioral and Social Sciences and of 
Human Ecology Area C six to twelve hours in the College 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 REF LGDOP 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 thirty-hour General University Requirement but may not 
count these credits toward the satisfaction of the minimum six-hour 
requirement in any of the three designated areas or the nine-credit upper 
division requirement Credit for such a course may be in addition to the 
twelve-hour maximum m 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 Studies

academic units to establish and publish clearly defined degree 
requirements Responsibility tor knowing and meeting all degree 
requirements for graduation in any curriculum rests with the student For 
requirements established by specific colleges, departments, or other 
academic units, the student is referred to the appropriate descriptions in 
Part 3 of this catalog 

Each student should check with the proper academic authorities no 
later than the close of the |unior year to ascertain his or her standing with 
respect to advancement toward a degree For this purpose, each student 
should be sure to retain a copy of the semester grade reports issued by the 
Office of Records and Registrations at the close of each semester 

Second Degrees 

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

b Second Degree Taken Simultaneously. A student who wishes to 
receive simultaneously two baccalaureate degrees from College Park 
must satisfactorily complete a minimum of 150 credits (180 credits if 
one of the degrees is in Special Education) The regularly prescribed 
requirements of both degree programs must be completed As early 
as possible and. in any case, no later than the beginning of the second 
semester before the expected date of graduation, the student must file 
with the departments or programs involved, as well as with the 
appropriate Deans, formal programs showing the courses to be 
offered to meet the major, supporting area, college, and University 
Studies Program or General University Requirements If two colleges 
are involved in the double degree program, the student must designate 
which college is responsible for the maintenance of records Approval 
of the second degree will not be granted when there is extensive 
overlap between the two programs 



Graduation Requirements 

Credit Requirements for Graduation 

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

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

Grade Point Average 

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

another institution concurrent with regular registration on the College Park 
Campus may not be credited toward a College Park degree without 
advance approval by the dean of the college from which the student 
expects to receive a degree For students not registered in any college, the 
Dean for Undergraduate Studies shall assume the responsibilities normally 
delegated to the dean of the college in which the student is registered The 
same applies to off-campus registration in the summer program of another 
institution Permission to enroll in off-campus courses must be requested

transcript 

Residency Requirements — Final Thirty-Hour Rule 

a All candidates (or College Park degrees should plan to take their final 
thirty credits in residence since the advanced work of their major study 
normally occurs in the last year of the undergraduate program 
Included in these thirty semester hours will be a minimum of fifteen 
semester hours in courses numbered 300 or above, including at least 
twelve semester hours required in the maior field (in curricula requiring 
such concentrations) 

b A student who at the time of graduation will have completed thirty 
hours in residence at College Park may, under unusual circumstances, 
be permitted to take a maximum of six of the final thirty credits of 
record at another institution In such cases, written permission must be 
obtained in advance from the dean of the academic unit from which 
the student expects to receive the degree 

c For students in the combined three-year, preprofessional programs, 
the final thirty hours of the ninety-hour program taken at College Park 
must be taken in residence. 

Enrollment in Majors 

a A student must be enrolled in the maior program from which he or she 
plans to graduate, when registering for the final fifteen hours of the 
baccalaureate program This requirement also applies to the third year 
of the combined, preprofessional degree programs 

b A student who wishes to complete a second maior in addition to his or 
her primary mapr of record must obtain written permission in advance 
from the appropriate deans As early as possible, but in no case later 
than the beginning of the second semester before the expected date 
of graduation, the student must file with the departments or programs 
involved and with the appropriate deans, formal programs showing the 
courses to be offered to meet requirements in each of the maiors and 
supporting areas as well as the college and General 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 for each 
of the programs Courses taken for one major may be counted as part 
of the degree requirements for the other and toward the requirements 
for the University Studies Program However, no course used in either 
curriculum to satisfy a major, supporting area, or college requirement 
may be used to satisfy the General University Requirements If two 
colleges are involved in the double major program, the student must 
designate which college is responsible for the maintenance of records 

Diploma Applications 

Application for diplomas must be filed with the Office of Records and 
Registrations (a) during the registration period, or (b) not later than the end 
of the schedule adjustment period of the regular semester, or (c) at the end 
of the first week of the second summer session In all cases, diploma 
applications must be filed at the beginning of the student's final semester 
before receiving a degree 

If all degree requirements are not completed during the semester in 
which the diploma application was submitted, it is the responsibility ol the 
student to file a new diploma application with the Office of Records and 
Registrations at the beginning of a subsequent semester when all degree 
requirements may be completed 

Credit Unit and Load Each Semester 

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

In order for undergraduate students to complete most curricula in four 
academic years, the semester credit load must range from twelve to 
nineteen hours so that they would complete from thirty to thirty-six hours 
each year toward the degree Students registering for more than nineteen 
hours per semester must have the special approval of their dean 

Classification of Students 

No baccalaureate curriculum requires fewer than 120 semester hours 
Actual classifications run as follows freshman. 1-27 semester hours, 
sophomore. 28-55, junior. 56-85. and senior, 86 to at least 120

Registrations of any change in their local or permanent address 
Procedures for notification may be found in the current Schedule of 
Classes, under "Change of Address Procedures " 

3 The schedule adjustment period shall be the first ten days of classes 
for the fall and spring semesters, and a corresponding period for 
summer semesters During that period, a full-time undergraduate may 
drop or add courses or change sections with no charge Part-time 
undergraduate students may also drop or add courses or change 
sections, but they should consult the directions /deadlines in the 
Schedule ol Classes to avoid incurring additional charges Courses 
so dropped during this schedule adjustment period will not appear on 
the student's permanent record Courses may be added, where space 
is available, during this period and will appear on the student's 
permanent record along with other courses previously listed After tins 
schedule adjustment period, courses may not be added without 
special permission of the department and the dean of the academic 
unit m which the student is enrolled 

Departments may identity courses or sections of courses with the 
approval of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs 
which, after the first live days of the schedule adjustment period, shall 
require faculty or departmental approval lor students to add 

4 After this schedule adjustment period, all courses lor 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 lull-time if the number of credit hours enrolled at this time is nine 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 fall 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 tour 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 Irom 
all courses must do so on or before the last day of classes After the 
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 Oflice 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 are treated as off-campus courses and may not be credited 
without approval m advance by the dean of the college from which the 
student expects a degree The same rule applies to off-campus 
registration or registration m the summer school of another institution 

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

9 In all cases of transfer from one college to another on the College Park 
Campus, the dean of the receiving college, with the approval of the 
student, shall indicate which courses, il any. m 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 
that are to be made m 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 II a 
student transfers within one college from one program to another. h«s 
or her record evaluation shall be made by the dean m the same way as 
if he or she were transferring colleges If the student subsequently 
transfers to a third college, the dean of the third college shall make a 
similar initial adjustment, courses marked "nonapplicable" by the 
second dean may become applicable m the third program 

10 In the cases of non-college students, the Dean lor Undergraduate 
Studies shall assume the responsibilities normally delegated to deans 



Registration 

1 To attend classes at The University of Maryland it is necessary to 
process an official registration Registration is final and official when all 
lees are paid Instructions concerning registration are given in the 
Schedule ol Classes issued at the beginning of each new semester 



Concurrent Undergraduate-Graduate 
Registration 

A senior at The University ol Maryland who is wilhm seven hours of 
completing the requirements tor the undergraduate degree may. with the 
approval of his or her dean, the chair of the department concerned, and 



Academic Regulations and Requirements 55 



the Graduate School, register for graduate courses, which may later be 
counted tor graduate credit toward an advanced degree at this University 
The total ot undergraduate and graduate courses must not exce> 
credits tor 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 ot this opportunity must formally apply for 
admission to the Graduate School 

Undergraduate Credit for Graduate Level 
Courses 

Subiect to requirements determined by the graduate faculty ot the 
department or program offering the course, undergraduate students may 
register tor 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 maior 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 tor a graduate 
degree at The University of Maryland 

Combined Bachelor's/Master's Programs 

In November 1983. the Board of Regents approved guidelines for 
combined bachelor's/master's programs These programs will permit 
courses of study which lead to the award ot 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 

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 sufticient number of credits to permit the evaluation of academic 
performance, normally during the sophomore year and certainly 
before the complettion of sixty credits 

4. Students will work with faculty to develop a detailed academic and 

career plan which will include the final sixty 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 prior 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 thirty credits A maximum of six 

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 ot $1 00 lor lost or stolen registration 
cards and $7.00 lor lost, stolen, or broken photo identilication cards 
(Note the tee lor broken cards applies to new photo identilication cards 
issued alter the Fall 1977 semester ) 

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

The Consortium of Universities of the 
Washington Metropolitan Area 

The Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area 
consists of American University, The Catholic University of America. 
Gallaudet College, Georgetown University. George Washington University, 
Howard University, Mt Vernon College, Trinity College, University ot the 
District of Columbia, and The University of Maryland College Park Students 
enrolled in these institutions are able to attend certain classes at the other 
campuses and have the credit considered as "residence" credit at their 
own institutions Payment of tuition for courses will be made at the 
student's home campus 

Degree-seeking UMCP undergraduates may participate in the 
Consortium program according to the following stipulations 

1 The desired course must be one that is not offered at UMCP Mere 
convenience is not adequate justification for permission to take 
courses at other consortium schools 

2 Practica, internships, workshops, and similar experimental learning 
courses cannot be taken at other consortium schools 

3 To be eligible, students must be degree-seeking students at UMCP 
and have junior standing (fifty-six credits) An exception to this 
policy is approval for courses in Army and Navy ROTC programs 

4 A student seeking to take courses at other consortium schools 
must have the prior written consent of the major department, the 
comparable department at UMCP if the course is outside the maior 
department, and the student's dean 

College Park Campus undergraduates interested in additional 
information about the Consortium Program should contact Mary-Ann 
Granger, Consortium Coordinator, in the Office of Records and 
Registrations, North Administration Building 

Academic Clemency 

Undergraduate students returning to the College Park Campus after a 
separation of a minimum of five calendar years may petition the 
appropriate dean to have a number of previously earned grades and 
credits removed from the calculation of their cumulative grade point 
average Up to sixteen credits and corresponding grades from courses 
previously completed at any University of Maryland 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 neither 
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 first 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 

It is the responsibility of veterans and dependents receiving VA benefits 
to notify the certification officials in the Registrations Office of every change 
of course or program, at the same time the change is submitted to the 
University The following types of changes must be reported credit level or 
grade option change, change of major 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, tor consistent attendance offers the most effective 
opportunity open to all students to gam 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 



56 Academic Regulations and Requirements 



languages, certain courses in physical education, and certain 
laboratory sessions Each department shall determine which ot its 
courses tall into this category It shall be the responsibility ot 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 ot 
the course and that absences will be taken into account in the 
evaluation of the student's work in the course 

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

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

5 Excuses tor 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 

Marking System 

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

2 The mark of A denotes excellent mastery of the subiect 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 subiect It denotes good 
scholarship In computation of cumulative or semester averages a 
mark of B will be assigned 3 quality points per credit hour 

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

5 The mark ot D denotes borderline understanding of the subiect. It 
denotes marginal performance, and it does not represent satisfactory 
progress toward a degree In computations of cumulative or semester 
averages a mark ot 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 that 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 student's control, he or she has been unable to complete some 
small portion of the work of the course In no case will the mark I be 
recorded for a student who has not completed the maior 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 m 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 ol "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 ad|ustment period

proficiency examination programs up to a total of one-half of the credits 
required for their degree It is the student's responsibility to consult with the 
appropriate dean or advisor with regard to applicability of any credit 
earned by examination to a specific degree program and to determine

Examinations, which cover the content of a broad field of study, and 
Sub|ect Examinations, which cover the specific content of a college 
course Credit can be earned and will be recognized by the College Park 
Campus for some CLEP General or Subject Examinations, provided 
satisfactory scores are attained Credits earned under CLEP are not 
considered residence credit 

Policies and Administration of the Examinations 

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

or gain credit 

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

Credit will not be given for 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 Irom the prior institution does not 
carry the scores, it will be the responsibility of the student to request the

Proficiency Examinations, Departmental (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 in 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 
material which might be helpful in preparing for examinations. 

An undergraduate who passes a departmental proficiency examination 
is given credit and quality points toward graduation in the amount regularly 
allowed in the course, provided such credits do not duplicate credit 
obtained by some other means (e.g., earned in high school or another 
college) 

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 
Coordinator. Undergraduate Advising Center. Room 1117, Hornbake 
Library

Academic Dishonesty' 

'The Academic Dishonesty Policy Statement is currently being 
revised by the Campus Senate to reflect the recent reorganization ot the 
academic units at College Park The following interim procedure is to be 
in effect until such time as this policy statement is revised by the Senate 
For the nondepartmentalized colleges, the dean lor Undergraduate 
Studies shall assume the responsibilities formerly held by the division 
provost For the departmentalized colleges, the dean of the college shall 
assume the responsibilities formerly held by the division provost 

Academic dishonesty is prohibited by the Code ot Student Conduct 
and may result in a serious penalty, including expulsion from the University 
The Code defines academic dishonesty as follows 
a Cheating. Intentionally using or attempting to use unauthorized 

materials, information or study aids in any academic exercise 
b Fabrication. Intentional and unauthorized falsification or invention of 

any information or citation in 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 
ot another as one's own in any academic exercise 

In cases involving charges ot 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 The dean will check the Judiciary 
Office records to determine if the student has any record of prior offenses 
involving academic dishonesty The dean will then consult with the student 
involved, and if the alleged academic dishonesty is admitted by the student 
and is his first offense, the dean may resolve the charges, provided the 
penalty is accepted by the student in writing In such case the dean will 
make a written report of the matter, including the action taken, to the 
student's dean and to the Office of Judicial Programs Disciplinary 
penalties not involving a course grade are subject to review and approval 
by the Office of Judicial Programs. 

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

The dean of the instructional department will refer the specific report of 
alleged academic dishonesty to this ad hoc committee, which will hear the 
case The hearing procedures before the committee are set forth in the 
document "Preparing for an Academic Dishonesty Hearing," issued by the 
Office of Judicial Programs The Code of Student Conduct provides that 
any act of academic dishonesty, including a first offense, will place the 
student in |eopardy of "suspension from the University, unless specific and 
significant mitigating factors are present" (part 11). 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 adjudication 

The chair of the committee will report its findings of facts and 
recommended penalties, if any, to the dean of the instructional department 
The sanctions specified by the panel are regarded as recommendations to 
the dean, who will inform the student and the Office of Judicial Programs of 
the outcome in writing. Also, if it has been determined that the student 
should be suspended or expelled, the dean should 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. Disciplinary penalties not involving a course 
grade are subject to review and approval by the Office of Judicial 
Programs

chartered in 1856 The College of Agriculture has a continuous record of 
leadership in education since that date It became the beneficiary of the 
Land-Grant Act of 1862. 

The College of Agriculture continues to grow and develop as part of the 
greater University, providing education and research activities enabling us 
to use our environment and natural resources to best advantage while 
conserving basic resources for future generations 

Advantage of Location and Facilities. Educational opportunities in the 
College of Agriculture are enhanced by the nearby location of several 
research units of the Federal government Of particular interest are the 
Agricultural Research Center at Beltsville and the U S Department of 
Agriculture Headquarters in Washington. D C The National Agricultural 
Library at Beltsville is an important resource. 

Related research laboratories of the National Institutes of Health, 
military hospitals, National Aeronautics and Space Agency, and the 
National Bureau of Standards are in the vicinity Interaction of faculty and 
students with personnel from these agencies is encouraged Teaching and 
research activities are conducted with the cooperation of scientists and 
professional people in government positions 

Instruction in the basic biological and physical sciences, social sciences 
and engineering principles is conducted in well-designed classrooms and 
laboratories The application of basic principles to practical situations is 
demonstrated for the student in numerous ways 

Modern greenhouses are available for teaching and research on a wide 
variety of plants, plant pests, and crop cultural systems 

Dairy and beef cattle and flocks of poultry are kept on the campus for 
teaching and research purposes 

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

General Information. Today's agriculture is a highly complex and extremely 
efficient industry that includes supplies and services used in agricultural 
production, and the marketing, processing and distribution of products to 
meet the consumers' needs and wants The College of Agriculture strives 
to accomplish the task of providing an agricultural education that fits all the 
needs of today's most advanced science of agriculture

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 journals hire students trained in this field as 
editors and writers Also, this training is valuable to students who find 
employment in University extension programs, as a large part of their work 
involves written communication with the public. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

3. To prepare students for entrance to veterinary schools 

4 To prepare students for graduate study and subsequent careers in

Food science is a relatively new branch of science concerned with the 
application of the fundamental principles of the physical, biological, and 
behavioral sciences and engineering to better understand the complex and 
heterogeneous materials recognized as food The contemporary food 
industry is highly dependent on this accumulating body of knowledge and 
especially on the people who are able to apply it — the lood scientists or 
the food technologists, terms that are used interchangeably 

Courses include the general areas of production, distribution, 
preparation, evaluation, and utilization of foods to provide a better and 
more plentiful food supply for humankind 

Specialization is offered in the areas of flavor and food chemistry, food 
microbiology, including industrial fermentation, food processing technology 
including freezing, thermal and aseptic processing, quality assurance, and 
the commodity areas of red meats, milk and dairy products, fruits and 
vegetables, poultry and poultry products and seafood products 

Opportunities for careers in lood science are available in industry. 
universities and government Specific positions for food scientists include 
product development, production management, quality control and quality 
assurance, technical sales and service, ingredient management, food 
engineering, research and teaching

The School of Architecture offers a graduate program leading to the 
degree. Master of Architecture, and four-year undergraduate programs 
leading to Bachelor of Science degrees in two maior fields of study 
architecture and urban studies The undergraduate mapr in architecture is 
designed to minimize the time required to complete the curriculum leading 
to the professional degree, Master of Architecture The urban studies 
program is designed for students admitted to the school who desire strong 
academic preparation in architecture and urban studies sublets at the 
undergraduate level, but who do not plan to pursue a career in 
architecture. 

The school's 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 m 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 

The B S degrees in architecture and urban studies will qualify 
graduates 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 



68 School of Architecture 



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

College of Arts and Humanities 

Dean: Brecht (acting) 

The College 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 college also offers instruction in the creative and performing 
areas — studio art, music, dance, theatre, creative writing, and film — as 
well as professional training in 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 in 
American, East Asian, Jewish, linguistics, and Russian studies. Faculty 
representing various disciplines will advise students on such area studies 
as Latin America. Or a student, with faculty help, may devise coherent 
programs in, 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 student's imagination 
and interest may suggest, are strengthened by courses from other 
colleges 

Many of the maior programs in Arts and Humanities make excellent pre- 
law preparation In fact, with a judicious choice of electives in this and other 
colleges, 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 college 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 College 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 College of Arts and Humanities is 
the dean Stall in the dean's ollice serve as ombudsmen for students The 
dean's oflice is responsible lor certilymg that students have met all degree 
requirements The stall evaluates transler credits and coordinates the 
advising ol newly admitted students It maintains a liaison with the various 
faculty advisors and academic programs within the college The office of 
the dean is the place where students can go when they are lost or have any 
question about academic policies or procedures The stall can adjust 
courses or schedules, providing it is ethically justifiable The dean's office 
can interpret existing regulations and, where it again feels ethically justified, 
can make certain exceptions Students majoring in architecture and 
journalism will work directly with the stalls ol the School ol Architecture and 
the College ol 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 deans and advisors will stay as long as 
necessary 

Each entering student in this college 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 ol study, a 
faculty advisor representing that area will be assigned

Two maiors are ottered in art art history and studio The student who 
maiors in art history is committed to the study and scholarly interpretation 
ol existing works o( art. from the prehistoric era to our times, while the 
studio maior stresses the student's direct participation in the creation of 
works ot art 

In spite ot this difference, both maiors are rooted in the concept of art 
as a humanistic experience, and share an essential common aim the 
development ot aesthetic sensitivity, understanding, and knowledge For 
this reason, students in both majors are required to progress through a 
"common curriculum." which will ensure a broad grounding in both aspects

Recognizing that dance combines both athleticism and artistry, the 
dance program offers comprehensive technique and theory courses as a 
foundation for the dance professions By developing an increasing 
awareness of the physical, emotional and intellectual aspects ol movement 
in general, the student eventually is able to integrate his or her own 
particular mind-body consciousness into a more meaningful whole To 
facilitate the acquisition of new movement skills, as well as creative and 
scholarly insights in dance, the curriculum provides a structured breadth 
experience at the lower department level At the upper level students may 
either involve themselves in various general university electives. or they 
may concentrate their energies in a particular area of emphasis in dance 
Although an area of emphasis is not mandatory, many third and fourth year 
students are interested in studying a singular aspect of dance in depth, 
such as performance, choreography, production /management, 
education, or general studies (encompassing dance history, literature and 
criticism) 

The dance faculty is composed of a number of distinguished teachers, 
choreographers, and performers, each one a specialist m his or her own 
field Visiting artists, throughout the year and during the summer, make 
additional contributions to the program There are several performance 
and choreographic opportunities for all dance students, ranging from 
informal workshops to fully mounted concerts both on and off campus 
Students may have the opportunity of working with Maryland Dance 
Theater or with Improvisations Unlimited, both m residence in the 
department 

Students must complete fifty-nine semester hours of dance credits Of 
these, eighteen hours of modern technique and four hours of ballet 
technique are required Majors may not use more than seventy-two DANC 
credits toward the total of 120 needed for graduation In addition to the 
twenty-two technique credits required, students must distribute the 
remaining thirty-seven credits as follows 

Choreography I, II, III 9 

Rhythmic Training 2 

Improvisation 2 

Dance Notation 3 
Introduction to Dance

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 from this program will be qualified to begin a career as 
graphic designers and seek employment in publishing firms, advertising 
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 

Admission to the Pre-Design Major. Any student who has been admitted to 
the University may declare a pre-design ma|or However, admission to the 
University or to the pre-design maior does not guarantee admission to the 
interior design or advertising design maior Admission to these two maiors 
is governed by the "Selective Admission" procedure outlined below. 

Admission to the Interior Design and Advertising Design Majors 

1 Admission to the maiors of interior design and advertising design is 
selective Ordinarily, students are admitted to these majors only after a 
Design Work Portfolio, produced according to minimum requirements 
set forth below, has been reviewed and found satisfactory by the 
Faculty Admission Committee composed of the three Area 
Coordinators and the Department Chair The portfolio must be 
submitted by the appropriate deadline. Students will need a minimum 
of twenty-nine credit hours, including APDS 101. APDS 102.APDS 103. 
and EDIT 160, before their portfolios are reviewed 

2 The following categories of students are exempted from the portfolio 
review requirement: 

(a) Freshmen having a 3 high school GPA andcombined SAT score 
of 1200 or above, or who are National Merit and National 
Achievement Scholarship finalists or semifmalists; or recipients of 



i mcellors Scholarship, or of Maryland Distinguished Scholar 
Award, or Benjamin Banneker Scholarship 
(b) Students with a minimum of twenty-nine credit hours and a grade of 
B or higher in the following courses APDS 101, APDS 102. APDS 
103. and EDIT 160 

3 Transfer students must submit their Design Work Portfolio at the time 
of their application for admission to The University of Maryland or later, 
but in any case by the appropriate deadline These students will be 
admitted to the ma/ors of interior design or advertising design after the 
portfolio has been reviewed and found satisfactory Transfer students 
who have not completed twenty-nine credits, or who have not 
completed the four required courses, or whose Design Work Portfolios 
have been found unsatisfactory may be admitted as "pre-design" 
students 

4 Potentially talented students who are unable to meet the above criteria 
may be admitted provided they have applied as a "case-by-case" 
student and have been accepted by the Faculty Admission Committee 
composed of the three Area Coordinators and the Department Chair 
Examples of non-academic criteria on the basis of which the 
Committee may grant admission are samples of the applicant's 
design work done in high school or community college, participation in 
portfolio preparation summer courses, leadership in extracurricular or 
community activities, hobby skills related to interior design and/or 
advertising design, job related experience in the design field. Armed 
Forces experience in design areas, etc 

5 Students not yet admitted to the maiors of interior design and 
advertising design are classified as "pre-design" students Pre-design 
students will be granted preferential treatment when registering tor 
departmental courses in which there is an enrollment limitation 

6 A course in "Preparation of Design Portfolio" is offered in Summer 
Session I for all students in the pre-design category who have 
successfully completed twenty-nine credit hours including APDS 101 A, 
APDS 102. APDS 103. and EDIT 160 or who are transfer students with 
an equivalent level of preparation but who have not satisfactorily 
passed the portfolio review Passing this course, however, is not 
equivalent to satisfactory completion of the portfolio review 

7. Admission to the interior design or advertising design maiors is not 
automatic, even when all relevant requirements have been fulfilled It is 
the student's responsibility to file a "Change of Major" form with the 
department by the appropriate deadline prior to the beginning of the 
semester in which the student plans to take 200-level-and-above 
courses restricted to maiors only. No exceptions will be made to this 

• procedure Students will be informed by mail of action taken

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

The following are among the courses giving the general student training 
in rigorous thinking, experience in critical and imaginative reflection on 
philosophical problems or familiarity with the philosophical foundations of 
Western and other cultures: PHIL 100 (Introduction to Philosophy), PHIL 
1 10 (Plato's Republic), PHIL 142 (Ethics), PHIL 170 (Introduction to Logic), 
PHIL 173, PHIL 174 (Logic and the English Language I and II), PHIL 236 
(Philosophy of Religion). PHIL 243 (Philosophy of Rural Life), and the 
historical courses 310. 316. 320, 325. 326, 327, 328 

For students interested particularly in philosophical problems arising 
within their own special disciplines, a number of courses are appropriate: 
PHIL 233 (Philosophy in Literature), PHIL 250 and 453 (Philosophy of 
Science I and II), PHIL 245 and 445 (Social and Political Philosophy I and II), 
PHIL 360 (Philosophy of Language). PHIL 308B (Philosophy of Beauty). 
PHIL 308C (Philosophy of Art). PHIL 334 (Philosophy of Music), PHIL 438 
(Topics in Philosophical Theology). PHIL 450 and 451 (Scientific Thought I 
and II), PHIL 452 (Philosophy of Physics). PHIL 454 (Philosophy of 
Economics), PHIL 455 (Philosophy of the Social Sciences), PHIL 456 
(Philosophy of Biology), PHIL 457 (Philosophy of History). PHIL 458 (Topics 
in the Philosophy of Science, e.g., Philosophy of Psychology, Historical and 



78 Arts and Humanities Departments, Programs and Curricula 



Conceptual Foundations ot Mathematics), and PHIL 474 (Induction and 
Probability) 

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

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

The department requirements for a major in philosophy are as follows 
(1) a total of at least thirty hours in philosophy, not including PHIL 100, (2) 
PHIL 142, 271, 310, 320, 326 and at least two courses numbered 399 or 
above, (3) a grade of C or better in each course counted toward the 
fulfillment of the maior requirement 

Fifteen hours of supporting courses are required

Philosophy and Public Policy 

Director: MacLean 

Research Associates: Fullmwider, Lichtenberg, Luban, Sagoff, Segal, 

Shue, Wachbroit 

The Center for Philosophy and Public Policy conducts research into the 
values and concepts that underlie public policy formulation Most research 
efforts — on topics expected to be a focus of public policy debate during 
the next decade — are conducted cooperatively by interdisciplinary 
working groups composed of philosophers, policymakers and analysts, 
other experts from within and without the government, and center staff In 
its research and curriculum development, the center seeks to create an 
improved understanding of the normative principles that are basic to an 
assessment of public policies 

The center's curriculum development seeks to bring philosophical 
issues before future policymakers and citizens Courses dealing with 
contemporary normative issues in the national and international arena are 
offered through the Departments of Philosophy and of Government and 
Politics, and through the Honors Program Courses that have been offered 
include Hunger and Affluence. Human Rights and U S Foreign Policy. 
Distributive Justice and Public Policy. Philosophical Issues in Public Policy, 
The Morality of Compulsory Military Service, Environmental Ethics, Energy 
Policy and the Constraints of Justice, Ethics and the New International 
Order, Risk and Consent, and the Endangered Species Problem: A

The Russian Area Studies Program offers courses leading to a 
Bachelor of Arts 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 lite will be valuable 
not only as such but as a means to deepen tt.e students' awareness of 
their own society and ol 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 college from which they graduate They must complete 
twelve hours of basic courses in Russian language normally through SLAV 
104 or the equivalent of these courses taken elsewhere, and they must 
complete at least twelve more hours in Russian language beyond the basic 
level (chosen from among SLAV 201, 202. 301. 302, 321. 322. 401. 402, 
and 403 or equivalent courses) In addition, students must complete 
twenty-four hours in Russian area courses on the 300 level or above 
These twenty-four hours must be taken m at least five 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 eighteen 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 m the social

College of Behavioral and Social 
Sciences 

Dean: Polakoff 

The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences is comprised of a 
diverse group of disciplines that emphasize a broad liberal arts education 
as a foundation for understanding the environmental, social, and cultural 
forces that shape our world At the heart of the behavioral and social 
sciences is the attempt to understand human beings, both individually and 
in groups; this understanding is developed using approaches that range 
from the scientific to the philosophical, from the experimental to the 
theoretical The greatest strength of the behavioral and social sciences, 
however, is that the techniques of problem-solving are taught within the 
context of strong academic skills This provides students with the 
intellectual breadth necessary to understand the world around them, and 
with the skills necessary to think analytically and critically, and to speak and 
write clearly and persuasively 

Students interested in human behavior and in solving human and social 
problems will find many exciting opportunities through the programs and 
courses offered by the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences The

Anthropology has been defined as "the study of humanity" because it 
is the only discipline that tries to understand humans as a whole — as an 
animal, as a social being, as a literate being — from the very beginning ot 
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 ot 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 

It is becoming increasingly clear that anthropology has been a definite 
asset in finding jobs in a variety of fields ranging trom business to the tine 
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 Anthropology at UMCP otters a solid and 
rigorous background for a variety ot career options 

The Anthropology Department otters beginning and advanced 
coursework in the four principal subdivisions of the discipline physical 
anthropology, linguistics, archaeology, and cultural anthropology Within

forensic anthropology, osteology, and archaeological analysis The 



interrelationship ol all branches ot anthropology is emphasized Courses in 
these subdivisions may be used to fulfill the minor or "supporting courses" 
requirement in some programs leading to the Bachelor ot Arts degree 

The Anthropology Department has a total ot lour 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 lor 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 The department's two 
archaeology labs, containing materials collected Irom field schools ol the 
past several years, serve as both teaching and research labs 

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

The Advising System. The Anthropology Department allows the student to 
select his or her faculty advisor to fit particular interests and needs. All 
anthropology faculty members are advisors (and should be contacted 
individually) who help plan each student's program All majors are 
expected to seek out a faculty advisor and consult with him/her on a 
regular basis For additional information, students should contact the 
Undergraduate Studies Coordinator, Dr Richard Dent, Room 1 106. Woods 
Hall, telephone 454-5354

Geography is an interdisciplinary field that offers a wide range of career 
options The central question in geographical study is "where 9 " 
Geographers research locational questions of the natural environment, of 
social and economic systems, and of past human activity on the land 
Modern geographical knowledge is useful to policy makers, as well as to 
program planners and managers Students of geography must master a 
variety ot 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 Departments of 
State, Interior. Defense, Agriculture, Housing and Urban Development. 
Health and Human Services, and the Central Intelligence Agency They are 
on the staffs of the legislative research branch, the Library of Congress, 
and the National Archives At the State and local government level there is 
an increasing demand for geographers in planning positions. And in recent 
years more and more geographers also are employed in the private sector 
working on problems of industrial and commercial location and market 
analysis Teaching at all levels from elementary school through graduate 
work continues to employ many geographers each year. Some find 
geography 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 for a general 
education For those interested in the future, the field has high potential for 
better understanding and planning for the economic transformation to an 
information-services economy, knowledge-intensive society Most 
professional positions in geography require graduate training. 

Requirements for an Undergraduate Major. Within any of the general maior 
programs it is possible for the student to adjust his/her program to fit 
his/her particular individual interests The maior totals thirty-seven 
semester hours In addition to the thirty-seven semester hours, the 
geography maior is required to take an additional fifteen semester hours of 
supporting coursework outside of the department The hours can be either 
m 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 Cirnncione, 1 125 LeFrak Hall, or 
telephone 454-2244 Supporting courses generally are related to the area 
of specialty in geography Pass-fail option is not applicable to maior or 
supporting courses A minimum grade of C in each course is required for 
major and supporting courses

The Department of Government and Politics offers programs designed 
to prepare students for government service, politics, foreign assignments, 



teaching, and a variety of graduate programs, law schools, and for 
intelligent and purposeful citizenship Satisfactory completion of 
requirements leads to a Bachelor of Arts 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 ol 
government. |ustice. 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 ot 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 |ustice. political economy, conflict, and 
human rights These broad conceptual areas are integral components ol 
the formal fields in the department The formal fields are (1) American 
government and politics, (2) comparative government, (3) political theory, 
(4) international affairs. (5) public administration. (6) public law, and (7) 
public policy and political behavior 

Areas of Specialization. The program in government and politics is highly 
flexible, and a variety of advising programs have been developed that 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 

Prelaw. Provides the student with a strong liberal arts background 
emphasized by law schools; includes at least one course m 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 m a foreign language is 
highly recommended. 

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

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

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

All government majors are required to take GVPT 100. 1 70. 44 1 . or 442 
and such other supporting courses as specified by the department They 
must take one course from three separate government fields as

the maior 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 that will satisfy each option is available m 
the departmental office 

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

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

The department offers students the opportunity to observe government 
agencies and political groups in action through a variety of internship 
experiences Only nine hours of GVPT credit will apply to the thirty-six 
hours needed in the maior In no case may more than fifteen GVPT 
internship credits be counted toward the 120 credits needed to graduate-

factors that 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 interested in the biological aspects of behavior tend to choose

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 ot social change 
Sociology's sub|ect 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 maior 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 lor 
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 m the 
department allows the student to combine these areas into individualized 
programs directed toward the student's specific goals Specializations are 
available in 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 institution organized in bureaucratic form such as education, politics, 
business, military Another facet of this specialization is the broad area of 
work roles and occupations. their meaning. development, 
professionahzation, and place in the social structure 

Military Sociology. 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 With 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 divisions 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 laced 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 maior in conjunction with programs m other 
compatible areas such as economics, government and politics.

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 ot 
Business and Management to accept in transfer trom a regionally 
accredited community college no more than twelve semester hours of work 
in business administration courses The twelve semester hours of business 
administration acceptable in transfer are specifically identified as three 
semester hours in an introductory business course, three semester hours 
in business statistics, and six semester hours of elementary accounting 
Thus, it is anticipated that the student transferring from another regionally 
accredited institution will have devoted the major share ot his academic 
effort below the |unior year to the completion of basic requirements in the 
liberal arts A total of sixty semester hours may be transferred trom a 
community college and applied toward a degree from the College of 
Business and Management 

Statement of Policy on the Transfer of Credits from Other Institutions. The 
College of Business and Management normally accepts transfer credits 
from regionally accredited tour-year institutions Junior and senior level 
business courses are accepted from colleges accredited by the American 
Assembly ot Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) Junior and senior 
level business courses Irom other than AACSB accredited schools are 
evaluated on a course-by-course basis to determine transferability

average of C or better No course crosslisted as CMSC may be 
counted in this requirement 

4. Thirty-nine credit hours which satisfy the University Studies Program 
(USP) as presented under Academic Regulations and Requirements 
Courses taken to satisfy these requirements may also be used to 
satisfy major requirements 

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

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

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

Non-majors (particularly scientists and engineers) who may want to 
take additional CMSC courses should take CMSC 110 or CMSC 120 
instead of CMSC 103 Students who complete CMSC 110 or CMSC 120 
must still take CMSC 112-113 to become majors Non-majors wishing to 
take upper-level courses must take CMSC 112-113 

Majors should take the CMSC 112, 113 sequence in their first year 
These courses emphasize the use of formal techniques in computer 
science; grammars, discrete mathematics, functional semantics, and 
program correctness. 

Undergraduate Computer Science Courses. Beginning with courses at the 
200 level each student may arrange an individualized program by choosing 
areas of interest within computer science and then taking courses 
appropriate to those areas The department offers the following 
undergraduate courses in the areas indicated Computer Systems CMSC 
211, 311, 411, 412, 415, Information Processing CMSC 220, 420. 424. 
426 Numerical Analysis CMSC 460. 470, 471; Programming Languages 
CMSC 330, 430, 432, 434, 435, and Theory of Computing: CMSC 250, 
450, 451. 452, 456. 

In addition special topics courses (CMSC 498) are offered in one or 
more areas each semester (Graduate level courses are offered in all of 
these areas as part of the department's M S and Ph D degree programs.) 

The student may choose from a large variety of computer science 
courses to satisfy the requirement of a minimum of thirty-five credit hours of 
CMSC courses A number of advanced courses in computer science have 
additional mathematics prerequisites such as MATH 240 and 241 
Students who anticipate continuing their studies in graduate school should 
complete the sequence MATH 140, 141, 240, 241, and a statistics course. 



additional advanced courses beyond the minimum required, to be selected 
from astronomy, physics, and mathematics 

Detailed mlormation on typical programs and alternatives to the 
standard program can be tound in the pamphlet entitled "Department 
Requirements tor a Bachelor of Science Degree in Astronomy'' which is 
available trom the Astronomy Program office 

Note: Some changes in the required program tor astronomy majors are 
under discussion Check with the Astronomy Program office for further

Honors in Astronomy. The Honors Program offers students of exceptional 
ability and interest in astronomy an educational program with a number ot 
special opportunities for learning There are many opportunities for part- 
time research participation which may develop into full-time summer 
projects An honors seminar is ottered lor advanced students, credit may 
be given tor independent work or study, and certain graduate courses are 
open for credit toward the bachelor's degree 

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

Courses for Non-Science Majors. There are a variety of astronomy 
courses offered for those who are interested in learning about the subject 
but do not wish to major in it These courses do not require any 
background in mathematics or physics and are geared especially to the 
non-science major ASTR 100 is a general survey course that briefly covers 
all of the major parts of astronomy ASTR 1 10 is the lab that can be taken 
with or after ASTR 100 Several 300-level courses are offered primarily for 
non-science students who want to learn about a particular field in depth 
Such topics as the Solar System, Galaxies and the Universe, and Life in the 
Universe are offered Non-science majors should not normally take ASTR 
200 or ASTR 350

Computer science is the study of computers and computational 
systems — their theory, design, development, and application Principal 
areas within computer science include artificial intelligence, computer 
systems data-base systems, human factors, numerical analysis, 
programming languages, software engineering, and theory of computing 
Computer science incorporates concepts from mathematics, engineering, 
and psychology 

A computer scientist is concerned with problem solving Of interest are 
problems ranging from the abstract to the practical - from determining what 
kinds of problems can be solved with computers and the complexity of 
their algorithmic solutions, to computer systems suitable for human use 
Computer scientists design and analyze algorithms to solve problems, and 
implement the designs by writing correct, efficient programs They design, 
develop, and study the performance of different computer architectures, 
operating systems, databases, and programming languages Computer 
scientists are interested in problems pertaining to the modeling of human 
behavior (e.g., expert systems, robotics) as well as those involving 
extensive numerical computations. 

The Bachelor of Science degree program in Computer Science is 
designed to prepare students for employment and graduate work. The 
program begins with mathematical foundations of programming methods 
it includes a wide range of courses which provide breadth and which 
enable each student to select areas of individual interest. 

Selective Admissions Policies. 

Freshmen: Admission to the major is competitive for incoming freshmen. 
Applicants who have designated a computer science major will be selected 
for admission on the basis of academic promise and available space. 
Applicants admissible to the University but not to the major will be offered 
admission to pre-computer science A pre-computer science major is not 
assured eventual admission to the major Because of space limitations the

Geology 

Professor and Chair: Chang 

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 ot 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 Master of Science degree Although some sectors of the 
geological industry, such as the petroleum industry, are subject to cyclical 
employment conditions, most sectors are enjoying a strong employment 
outlook Strong areas of employment include mineral resource 
consumption, land management, hydrology, remote sensing, and virtually 
all areas of environmental studies At this time, students with the Bachelor 
of Science, particularly those with supportive training in statistics and 
computer science, can find satisfactory employment However, graduate 
school is strongly recommended for those students desiring a professional 
career in the geosciences 

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

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

mathematics courses. 

4 In order to broaden the student's mathematical experience, each 
Math/ Stat maior must complete, with a grade of C or better, a course 
sequence in a supporting area Other sequences may be considered, 
on a case-by-case basis, by the Undergraduate Chair However, any 
sequence to be approved which does not appear in this list must make 
substantial use of mathematics, comparable to the sequences on this 
list 

(a) Physics. One of the following sequences:

STAT 410. provided one of the following courses is included 
among the eight 400-level math courses STAT 411, 420. 450, 
MAPL 477 ) 

Within the Department of Mathematics there are a number of 

identifiable areas which a student can pursue to suit his/her own goals and 

interests They are briefly described below Note that they do overlap and 

that a student need not confine himself /herself to one of them 

1. Pure mathematics the courses which clearly belong in this area are 

MATH 402, 403, 404, 405, 406, 410. 411, 414, 415, 417. 430, 432, 

433. 436. 444. 446, 447, 450, STAT: 410, 411, 420 Students 

preparing for graduate school in mathematics should include MATH 

403, 405, 410 and 411 in their programs MATH 463 (or 660) and 

MATH 432 (or 730) are also desirable Other courses from the above 

list and graduate courses are also appropriate 

2 Secondary teaching the following courses are required to leach 

mathematics at the secondary level MATH 402 or 403, 430, and EDCI 

451 (EDCI 451 is acceptable as one of the eight upper level math 

courses required for a mathematics maior ) These additional courses 

are particularly suited for students preparing to teach MATH 406, 444. 

463. STAT 400 and 410 EDHD 300, EDPA 30 1 . EDCI 350 or 455, and 



EDCI 390 are necessary to teach, before registering for these 
courses, the student must apply for and be admitted to teacher 
education 

3 Statistics For a student with a Bachelor of Arts seeking work requiring 
some statistical background, the minimal program is STAT 400-401 
To work primarily as a statistician, one should combine STAT 400-401 
with at least two more statistics courses, most suitably STAT 450 and 
STAT 440 A stronger sequence is STAT 410. 420. 450 This offers a 
better understanding and wider knowledge ol statistics and is a 
general purpose program (i e . does not specify one area of 
application) For economics applications STAT 400, 401, 440. 450. 
and MAPL 477 should be considered For operations research MAPL 
477 and/or STAT 411 should be added or perhaps substituted for 
STAT 450 To prepare tor graduate work, STAT 410 and 420 give the 
best background, with STAT 41 1. 421. 440, 450. and 460 added at 
some later stage 

4 Computational mathematics there are a number of math courses 
which emphasize the computational aspects of mathematics including 
the use of the computer They are MAPL 460. 470. 471. 477. and 
MATH 475 Students interested in this area should take CMSC 112. 
113 as early as possible, and CMSC 420, 440 are also suggested 

5 Applied mathematics the courses which lead most rapidly to 
applications are the courses listed above in 3 and 4 and MATH 401, 
414, 415, 436, 462, 463. 464 A student interested m applied 
mathematics should obtain, in addition to a solid training m 
mathematics, a good knowledge of at least one area in which 
mathematics is currently being applied Concentration in this area is 
good preparation for employment in government and industry or for 
graduate study in applied mathematics 

Language. Since most of the non-English mathematical literature is written 
in French, German or Russian, students intending to continue studying 
mathematics in graduate school should obtain a reading knowledge of at 
least one of these languages 

Honors in Mathematics. The Mathematics Honors Program is designed for 
students showing exceptional ability and interest in mathematics Its aim is 
to give a student the best possible mathematical education Participants 
are selected by the Departmental Honors Committee during the first 
semester of their |unior year To graduate with honors in mathematics they 
must pass a final written and oral comprehensive examination Six credits 
of graduate work or three credits in a graduate course and three credits of 
independent study in mathematics approved by the Honors Committee are 
also required The rest of the program is flexible. Independent work is 
encouraged and can be done in place of formal coursework. 

The department also offers a special mathematics department honors 
calculus sequence (MATH 150. 151, 250, 25 1 ) for promising freshmen with 
a strong mathematical background (usually including calculus) Enrollment 
in the sequence is normally by invitation but any interested student may 
apply to the Mathematics Departmental Honors Committee for admission 

Participants in the General Honors Program may also enroll in special 
honors sections of the regular calculus sequence (MATH 140H, 141H, 
240H, 24 1H) They may also enroll in the honors calculus sequence if 
invited by the Mathematics Departmental Honors Committee However, the 
mathematics departmental honors calculus sequence and the General 
Honors Program are distinct, and enrollment in one does not imply 
acceptance in the other 

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

Pi Mu Epsilon. The local chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon, national honorary 
mathematics fraternity, meets frequently to discuss mathematical or 
educational topics of interest to undergraduates The programs are open 
to the public. 

Placement in Mathematics Courses. The Department of Mathematics has 
a large offering to accommodate a great variety of backgrounds, interests, 
and abilities The department permits a student to take any course for 
which he or she has the appropriate background regardless of formal 
coursework For example, a student with a high school calculus course 
may be permitted to begin in the middle of the calculus sequence even if he 
or she does not have advanced standing Students may obtain 
undergraduate credit for mathematics courses in any of the following ways 
passing the appropriate CEEB Advanced Placement Examination, passing 
standardized CLEP examinations, and through the department's Credit-by- 
Exammation Students are urged to consult with advisors from the 
Department of Mathematics to assist with proper placements 

Statistics and Probability, and Applied Mathematics. Courses in statistics 
and probability and applied mathematics are offered by the Department of 
Mathematics These courses are open to non-majors as well as majors, 
and carry credit in mathematics Students wishing to concentrate in the 
above may do so by choosing an appropriate program under the 
Department of Mathematics

The Department of Meteorology offers a number of courses of interest 
to undergraduate students These courses provide an excellent 
undergraduate background for those students who wish to do graduate 
work in the fields of atmospheric and oceanic science, meteorology, air 
pollution, and other environmental sciences The interdisciplinary nature of 
studies in meteorology and physical oceanography assures that all 
science-oriented students will gain a broadened view of physical science 
as a whole, as well as the manner in which the sciences may be applied to 
understand the behavior of our environment 

Undergraduate students interested in pursuing a bachelor's degree 
program preparatory to further study or work in meteorology are urged to 
consider the Physical Sciences Program, in which they can specialize in 
meteorology It is important that students who anticipate this specialization 
should consult the Physical Sciences Program advisor representing the 
Department of Meteorology as early as possible in their studies 

Because of its interdisciplinary nature, the study of the atmosphere 
requires a firm background in the basic sciences and mathematics To be 
suitably prepared for 400-level courses in meteorology, the student should 
have the following background either the physics maior series PHYS 
191-296 or the series PHYS 161, 262, 263, the mathematics series MATH 
140, 141, 240. 241 and either the series CHEM 103, 1 13 or CHEM 105. 
1 15 See the section on course descriptions for electives in meteorology 

Students who may be preparing for graduate education in meteorology 
are strongly advised to pursue further coursework from among the areas of 
physics, applied mathematics, chemistry, computer science, and statistics 
to supplement coursework in meteorology With proper counseling from 
the Department of Meteorology advisor, the student wishing to graduate 
with an MS degree in meteorology may achieve that goal in five years from 
the inception of university studies

Purpose. This program is suggested for many types of students those 
whose interests cover a wide range of the physical sciences; those whose 
interests have not yet centered on any one science, students interested in 
a career m an interdisciplinary area within the physical sciences, students 
who seek a broader undergraduate program than is possible in one of the 
traditional physical sciences, students interested in meteorology, 
preprofessional students (pre-law. pre-medical); or students whose 
interests in business, technical writing, advertising or sales require a broad 
technical background This program can also be useful for those planning 
science-oriented or technical work in the urban field, the urban studies 
courses must be taken as electives Students contemplating this program 
as a basis for preparation for secondary school science teaching are 
advised to consult the Science Teaching Center staff of the College of 
Education for additional requirements for teacher certification 

The Physical Sciences Program consists ot a basic set of courses in 
physics, chemistry, and mathematics, followed by a variety of courses 
chosen from these and related disciplines astronomy, geology, 
meteorology, computer science, and the engineering disciplines Emphasis 
is placed on a broad program as contrasted with a specialized one 

Students are advised by members of the Physical Sciences Committee 
This committee is composed of faculty members from each of the

The Curriculum. The basic courses include MATH 140. 141 and one other 
math course tor which MATH 141 is a prerequisite) 1 1 or 12credits) CHEM 
103 and 1 13. or 105 and 1 15 (8 credits), PHYS 162. 262. 263 ( 1 1 credits) 
or 191. 192 , 195. 196. 295. 296 ( 18 credits) or CMSC 1 10 (4 credits), or 
112/113 (8 credits) 

The choice of the physics sequence depends on the student's future 
aims and his/her background PHYS 161. 262. 263 is the standard 
sequence recommended tor most physical science maiors This sequence 
will enable the student to continue with intermediate level and advanced 
courses Students desiring a strong background in physics are urged to 
enroll in PHYS 191-294 This is the sequence also used by physics maiors 
and leads directly into the advanced physics courses 

Beyond these basic courses the student must complete twenty-four 
credits at the 300 or 400 level, chosen trom any three ot the following 
disciplines chemistry, physics, mathematics (including statistics), 
astronomy, geology, meteorology, computer science, and one of the 
engineering disciplines, subiect to certain limitations The twenty-tour 
distributive credits must be at the upper level (300-400) and shall be 
distributed so that at least six credits are earned in each of the three 
selected areas of concentration A grade of C or better must be earned m 
both basic and distributive requirement courses 

Engineering courses used for one of the options must all be trom the 
same department, e.g., all must be ENAE courses, or a student may use a 
combination of courses in ENCH, ENNU. and ENMA. which are all ottered 
by Department of Chemical and Nuclear Engineering, courses offered as 
engineering sciences. ENES. will be considered as a department tor these 
purposes 

Because of the wide choice and flexibility within the program, students 
are required to submit for approval a study plan during their |umor year. 
specifying the courses they wish to use in satisfying the requirements of the 
major 

Students who wish to depart from the stipulated curriculum may present 
their proposed program for approval by the Physical Science Committee 
An honors program is available to qualified students in their senior year 

Certain courses offered in the fields included in the program are not 
suitable for physical science majors and cannot count as part of the 
requirements of the program These include any courses corresponding to 
a lower level than the basic courses specified above (eg. MATH 115).

Science Communications 

The University of Maryland offers several interdisciplinary approaches 
to the training of science communicators, ranging from specialization in 
one science or engineering with background in communication to 
specializing in journalistic communication with background coursework in 
the sciences Each of the several program options can be tailored to the 
needs of individual students 

Undergraduate students interested in science communications can 
choose from a wide range of possibilities For example, some may want a 
career writing about the general happenings of the day in the physical and 
life sciences, or some students may prefer writing about the span from a 
pure science to its applied technology Others may prefer writing about one 



lield— such as agronomy, astronomy, geology— and its impact on 
society— in ecological problems, space exploration, and plate tectonics 

The following are several approaches Writing about the physical 
sciences: A recommended approach would be to take the Physical 
Sciences Program with a minor in journalism The Physical Sciences 
Program consists of a basic set of courses in physics, chemistry, and 
mathematics, followed by a variety of courses chosen from these and 
related disciplines astronomy, geology, meteorology, and computer 
science 

Writing about the lite sciences: A recommended approach would be to 
take the Biological Sciences Program with a minor m journalism The 
Biological Sciences Program includes work in botany, entomology, 
microbiology, and zoology, and introduces the student to the general 
principles and methods of each of these biological sciences 

Writing about engineering: A recommended approach would be to fake 
the B S -Engineering Program with a minor m journalism The B S - 
Engineering Program blends two or three fields of engineering or applied 
science 

Writing about a specific field: A recommended approach would be to 
take a department maior in any of the sciences, agriculture, or engineering 
and a minor in journalism 

Journalism combined with an overview ol the sciences A journalism 
maior could take selected science courses that provide a tamilanty with 
scientific thought and application 

Statistics and Probability 

Director: P. Smith

The Special Education Department offers an innovative and rigorous 
undergraduate program which prepares teachers of handicapped infants, 
children, or young adults This program has been nationally recognized for 
many of its exemplary features It is a five-year (10 semester, 150 credit 
hour) professional certification program which graduates students with 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 maiors 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 
thirty semester hours 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 the 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 Handicapped (SH) 

2 Early Childhood Special Education (EC) 

3 Education of the Educationally Handicapped (EH) 

4 Career/Vocational Education of the Handicapped (C/V) 
Coursework in each of these four areas is designed to develop 

expertise with a specific handicapped population Students work directly 
with handicapped children or youth during each semester, leading up to 
student teaching during the last semester. 

Objectives. Special Education students receive specialized training in the 
following areas language development, motor development, social- 
emotional development; normal human behavior; social and educational 
needs of the handicapped, diagnostic and educational assessment 
procedures; instructional procedures and materials, curriculum 
development; classroom and behavior management; effective 
communication with the parents and families of handicapped children; 
community resource planning, and local, State, and Federal laws 
concerning handicapped children and youth Graduates of the program are 
expected to master specific skills in each of these areas 

Combined Bachelor's /Master's Program. Selected undergraduate 
students majoring in special education will be eligible for dual application of 
credit to both the bachelor's and master's degrees A student desiring 
graduate credit should apply for admission to the Graduate School during 
the last semester of the fourth year If admitted to the Graduate School, the 



student may select up to twelve credits (four courses) ol specified 
coursework from the fifth year ol the undergraduate program to be applied 
simultaneously toward the credits required lor the master's degree in 
special education at The University ot Maryland The selected courses may 
not include field practica or student teaching experiences Students will be 
expected to tultill supplemental requirements in the selected courses To 
complete the master's degree, students must fulfill all Graduate School 
requirements lor the degree, with the exception of the selected 400-level 
courses 

Academic Advisement. The Department ol Special Education provides 
academic advisement through a faculty and a peer advisement program 
Special education majors are assigned a faculty advisor, who is carefully 
matched to the student's area of interest It is required that all students 
receive advisement on a semester basis Students are urged to use the 
Special Education Advisory Center. Room 1235 in the Benjamin Building 

Student Organizations. The Department of Special Education encourages 
student participation in extra-curricular activities within and outside of the 
University 

Council for Exceptional Children The Department ol Special Education 
sponsors Chapter 504 ol the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) The 
goals ol the chapter include both professional development of the 
members and service to the University and community Activities include 
meetings on topics relevant to special education, trips to state and national 
conventions, and student /faculty social events. 

Student Advisory Board. The department Student Advisory Board is made 
up of two undergraduate special education students, two graduate special 
education students, and one representative from CEC These members 
are elected by the student body The purpose of the board is to represent 
the student body at department faculty meetings and to offer student 
opinions on matters of concern 

Volunteer and Career Services. This service, coordinated by students, 
compiles and disseminates information regarding volunteer and part-time 
job opportunities for working with handicapped students 

Specialized Admission Requirements. With the exception of academically 
talented students, all students declaring special education as a major will 
be accepted as pre-special education majors To be accepted as a full 
special education major, students must fulfill the College of Education 
requirements for admission to Teacher Education, as well as the following 
departmental conditions 

1 Completion of coursework indicated below with an asterisk 

2 Admission is competitive beyond the minimum 2 5 grade point average 
required for consideration. 

3 Submission of an application together with a statement of intent 
specifying the applicant's professional goals. 

Admittance will be based on the completion of the required courses, 
the grade point average, the applicant's experience with handicapped 
persons, and the appropriateness and clarity of the professional goal 
statement 

An appeals process has been established for students who do not 
meet the competitive GPA for admission, but who are applying in 
connection with special University programs including affirmative action 
and academic promise.

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/she 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 m 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 m lour years 
These curricula are rigorous and relatively difficult for the average student 
Surveys have shown that only about one-third to one-hall 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 lor a student to stretch out any curriculum, this may be 
necessary or desirable for a variety of reasons However, students should 
seek competent advising in order to ensure that courses are taken in the 
proper sequence 

Structure of Engineering Curricula. Courses in the normal curriculum or 
program and prescribed credit hours leading to the degree of Bachelor of 
Science (with curriculum designation) are outlined in the sections pertaining 
to each department in the College of Engineering No student may modify 
the prescribed number ol hours without special permission trom the dean 
of the college The courses in each curriculum may be classified m the 
following categories 
1. Courses in the University Studies Program Requirements 

2 Courses m the physical sciences — mathematics, chemistry, physics 

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

4 Courses in the maior department A student should obtain written 
approval for any substitution ol courses from the department chair and 
the dean of the college 

The courses m each engineering curriculum, as classified above, form a 
sequential and developmental pattern in subiect matter In this respect. 
curricula in engineering may differ from curricula in other colleges Some 
regulations which are generally applicable to all students (see the 
Academic Regulations) may need clarification tor purposes of orderty

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 tor 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 science courses represent a common core of basic 
material offered to students of several different departments All freshman 
and sophomore students of engineering are required to take ENES 101, 
and ENES 1 10 Other ENES courses 220, 221, 230, and 240 are specified 
by the different departments or taken by the student as electives The 
responsibility for teaching the engineering science courses is divided 
among the Civil, Mechanical, Chemical, and Electrical Engineering 
Departments In addition to the core courses noted above, several courses 
of general interest to engineering or non-engineering students have been 
given ENES designations. 

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 |unior year in engineering at 
The University ot Maryland These curricula are identified as Engineering 
Transfer Programs in the catalogs of the sponsoring institutions The 
various associate degree programs in technology do not provide the 
preparation and transferability into the professional degree curricula as the 
designated transfer programs 

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

There may be six to eight 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 academic years 
(minimum ninety hours) and The University of Maryland, College of 
Engineering for approximately two academic years (minimum hours 
required — determined individually, approximately sixty hours) 

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

At the present time the participating institutions in Maryland and the 
District of Columbia are American University, Bowie State College, 
Columbia Union College, Coppm State College. Frostburg State College, 
Morgan State University. College of Notre Dame of Maryland, St Mary's 
College of Maryland, Salisbury State College, Towson State University. 
Western Maryland College. Trinity College, and Washington College Also 
participating in the program are Kentucky State University, King College in 
Tennessee, Shippensburg State University in nearby Pennsylvania, and 
Xavier in Louisiana 



Cooperative Engineering Education Program 

Program Director: Ferrell 

The Maryland Plan for Cooperative Engineering Education at The 
University of Maryland. College of Engineering, is a five calendar year 



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 engineering are designed to lay a strong 
foundation in mathematics, physical sciences, and Ihe engineering 
sciences upon which the student will later develop a professional program 
during the upper division dunior 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 percent 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 ot 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 m effect tor the various engineering departments Applicants admissible 
to the University but not to the college will be offered admission to pre- 
engineermg A Pre-engmeering 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. 
Minority and women students are encouraged to apply for admission. For 
consideration of appeals for admission contact the Office of 
Undergraduate Admissions 

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 
tor 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. Minority and women students are encouraged to apply for 
admission For consideration of appeals for admission contact the Office 
of Undergraduate Admissions 

College Regulations 

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

2 Required courses in mathematics, physics, and chemistry have highest 
priority: and it is strongly recommended that every 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, and 
University Studies Program requirements. Students should be aware 
that for all currently existing engineering programs the total number of 
credits necessary for the degree will exceed 120 by some number that 
will depend on the specific maior and the student's background, 
especially in English 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 major fields designated baccalaureate degree programs or follow 



110 College of Engineering Departments, Programs and Curricula 



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 
work assignments which must be satisfactorily completed to qualify for the 
baccalaureate degree under the Co-op Plan 

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

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

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 sixty-five degree credits) and (2) 
the establishment of a cumulative grade point average at The University of 
Maryland of at least 2 0/4.0 

A typical study-work schedule is shown below The typical student 
begins the first work assignment in the summer immediately following the 
sophomore year (sixty-five accumulated degree credits) The total co-op 
plan is for two summers and two semesters (sixty weeks) Fifty weeks is 
the required minimum The student enrolls for twelve non-degree semester 
hours each during the fall and spring semester, twelve semester hours 
during the summer.

Although the above study-work schedule depicts the student interning for sixty 
weeks, the required minimum number is fifty weeks 

Students make their own arrangements for board and lodging while on 
their periods of co-oping. Frequently the participating industrial company 
or governmental agency will assist the student in locating good, 
inexpensive lodging The co-op 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 tee is charged for each ten-week period of co-opmg The co-op fee is 
payable at the beginning of each co-op period and is not refundable. 



Instructional Television System

Aerospace engineering is concerned with the physical understanding, 
analysis, and design of aerospace vehicles operating within and above the 
atmosphere Such vehicles range from helicopters and other vertical take- 
off aircraft at the low speed end of the (light spectrum to spacecraft 
operating at thousands of miles per hour during entry into the atmospheres 
of the earth and other planets In between are general aviation and 
commercial transports flying at speeds well below and close to the speed 
of sound, and supersonic transports, fighters, and missiles which cruise at 
many times the speed of sound Although each speed regime and each 
vehicle type poses its own special research, analysis and design problems, 
each can be addressed by a common set of technical specialities or 
disciplines 

Consider the high-speed flight of NASA's Space Shuttle The airflow 
over the wings, fuselage and tail surfaces create lift, drag and moments on 
the aircraft If the velocity is high enough, such as during reentry of the 
Space Shuttle into the earth's atmosphere, then the temperature of the 
airflow becomes extremely high, the air becomes chemically reactive, and 
heating of the vehicle's surface becomes a maior problem The study of 
how and why the airflow produces these forces, moments and heating is 
called aerodynamics. In turn, the motion of the aircraft or space vehicle will 
respond to, indeed will be determined by. the aerodynamic forces and 
moments The study of the motion and flight path of such vehicles is called 
flight dynamics. Of course, while executing this motion, the vehicle must be 
structurally sound, that is, its surface and internal structure must be able to 
withstand the severe forces and loads associated with (light The study of 
the mechanical behavior of materials, stresses and strains, deflections and 
vibrations that are associated with the structure of the vehicle itself is called 
flight structures. In the same vem. the motion of any aircraft or space 
vehicle must be initiated and maintained by a propulsive mechanism such 
as the classic combination of a reciprocating engine with a propeller, or the 
more modern turbojets, ramjets, and rockets The study of the physical 
fundamentals of how these engines work is called flight propulsion. Finally, 
all of the above are synthesized into one system with a specific 
application — such as a complete transport aircraft or a missile— through a 
discipline called aerospace vehicle design 

The Department of Aerospace Engineering at The University ol 
Maryland oflers a rigorous and balanced education which includes all ot 
the above disciplines The goal ot this program is to create professional 
aerospace engineers with an understanding of the physical fundamentals 
underlying atmospheric and space flight, and with the capability of applying 
this knowledge for research, analysis, and design purposes Moreover, the 
physical background and design synthesis that marks aerospace 
engineering education also prepares a student to work productively m 
other fields such as energy and surface transportation 

The facilities of the department include three subsonic wind tunnels

Nuclear engineering deals with the practical use of nuclear energy from 
nuclear fission, fusion and radioisotope sources The maior use of nuclear 
energy is in electric power generation Other uses are in the areas of 
chemical processing, medicine, instrumentation, and isotope tracer 
analysis The nuclear engineer is primarily concerned with the design and 
operation of energy conversion devices ranging from very large reactors to 
miniature nuclear batteries, and with the use of nuclear reactions in many 
environmental, biological and chemical processes Because of the wide 
range of uses for nuclear systems, the nuclear engineers find interesting

Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Options of the "B.S.-Engineering" Program. The "B.S -Engineering" 
program is designed to serve three primary functions ( 1) to prepare those 
students who wish to use the breadth and depth of their engineering 
education as a preparatory vehicle for entry into post-baccalaureate study 
in such fields as medicine, law. or business administration; (2) to provide 
the basic professional training for those students who wish to continue their 
engineering studies on the graduate level in one of the new interdisciplinary 
fields of engineering such as environmental engineering, bio-medical 



114 College of Engineering Departments, Programs and Curricula 



engineering, systems engineering, and many others, and finally (3) to 
educate those students who do not plan a normal professional career in a 
designated engineering tield but wish to use a broad engineering education 
so as to be better able to serve in one or more of the many auxiliary or 
management positions of engineering related industries The program is 
designed to give the maximum flexibility for tailoring a program to the 
specific future career plans of the student To accomplish these objectives, 
the program has two optional paths an engineering option and an applied 
science option 

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

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

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

Civil Engineering Curriculum 

Civil engineering is a people-serving profession, concerned with the 
planning, design, construction and operation of large complex systems 
that people in our society utilize and depend on in their daily lives Civil 
engineering systems include buildings and bridges, water purification and 
distribution systems, highways, rapid transit and rail systems, ports and 
harbors, airports, tunnels and underground construction, dams, power 
generating systems, and structural components of aircraft and ships Civil 
engineering also includes urban and city planning, water and land pollution 
and treatment problems, and disposal of hazardous wastes and 
chemicals The design and construction of these systems are only a part of 
the many challenges and opportunities faced by civil engineers The recent 
revolution in computers, communications and data management has 
provided new resources that are widely used by the professional civil 
engineer in providing safe, economical and functional facilities to serve our 
society 

At both the undergraduate and graduate level, the department offers 
programs of study in all six major areas of concentration in civil 
engineering construction engineering and management, environmental 
engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering. 
transportation engineering, and water resources and remote sensing A 
total of 132 credit hours are required for a Bachelor's degree with 
emphasis in basic science (mathematics, chemistry and physics), 
engineering science, (mechanics of materials, statics and dynamics), basic 
civil engineering core courses, and twenty-two credits of technical 
electives that may be selected from a combination ot the six areas of civil 
engineering concentration The present undergraduate curricula, 
therefore, provides a sensible blend of required courses and electives, 
which permits students to pursue their interests without the risk ol 
overspecialization at the undergraduate level Mandatory student 
evaluations of teaching and a recent departmental peer evaluation of 
teaching indicates that the quality of teaching and instruction withm the 
department is outstanding

explosion, and related hazards, and ot evaluating and eliminating 
hazardous conditions 

The fundamental principles ot tire 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 manulacturing processes calls for an understanding not only of 
measures for the protection but of the processes themselves Often the 
most effective solution to the problem of safeguarding a hazardous 
operation lies in the modification of special extinguishing equipment The 
fire protection engineer must be prepared to decide in any given case what 
is the best and most economical solution ot the tire prevention problem His 
or her recommendations are often based not only on sound principles of 
fire protection but on a thorough understanding ot the special problems of 
the individual property 

Modern fire protection utilizes a wide variety of mechanical and 
electrical equipment which the student must understand in principle before 
he or she can apply them to special problems The fire protection 
curriculum emphasizes the scientific, technical, and humanitarian aspects 
ot tire 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 ot buildings and 
transportation facilities to restrict the spread ot tire and to facilitate the 
escape of occupants in case of fire; the design, installation and 
maintenance of fire detection and extinguishing devices and systems, and 
the organization and education of persons for fire prevention and fire 
protection

The primary function of the mechanical engineer is to create devices, 
machines, structures, or processes which are used to advance the welfare 
of mankind Design, analysis, synthesis, testing, and control are the 
essential steps in performing this function Certain aspects ol the science 
and art of engineering are of particular importance to achieve a successlul 
product or service Some ot these aspects are those relating to the 
generation and transmission ot mechanical power, the establishment of 
both experimental and theoretical models of mechanical systems, the 
design, control, and synthesis of components and systems, computer 
interfacing, the static and dynamic behavior ol fluids, system optimization, 
and engineering and production management 

There are many career opportunities in all ol these areas In particular, 
the areas of design, systems analysis, management, consulting, research. 
maintenance, manufacturing, teaching, and sales ofler challenging and 
rewarding futures Graduates from the University of Maryland are sought by 
national and local industries as well as Federal and State agencies and 
laboratories 

Because ol the wide variety of professional opportunities available to 
the mechanical engineer, the curriculum is designed to provide the student 
with a thorough training in basic tundamentals These include physics, 
chemistry, mathematics, computers, mechanics of solids and fluids, 
thermodynamics, materials, heat transfer, controls, and design The 
curriculum includes basic laboratory courses in fluid mechanics, materials 
engineering, electronic instrumentation and measurements, and a senior 
laboratory which provides an introduction to professional research and 
evaluation procedures The students are introduced to the concept ot 
design via machine design and energy conversion design courses, and 
seniors participate in a comprehensive design course during their Imal 
semester which is frequently linked with an advisor and a problem from 
industry This experience helps the student anticipate the type of activities 
likely to be encountered after graduation and also helps to establish 
valuable contacts with professional engineers 

In order to provide flexibility for students to follow their own interests in 
Mechanical Engineering, students may choose to concentrate in either 
mechanical design or energy design in their senior year In addition, seniors 
may choose from a wide variety of elective courses such as courses in 
robotics, computer-aided design, computer-aided manufacturing, 
electronic packaging, microprocessor theory, ocean engineering, finite 
element analysis, heating ventilation and air conditioning, solar energy. 
combustion, advanced fluid flow, and advanced mechanics, to list only a 
few A small number of academically superior undergraduate students are 
able to participate in Special Topic Problems courses in which a student 
and faculty member can interact on a one-to-one basis

Associate Professors: Epstein. Hula, Myricks, Wilson 
Assistant Professors: Anderson, Churaman. Leslie 
Lecturer: Werllnich 

The Department of Family and Community Development is devoted to 
describing, explaining, and improving the quality of lite by means of 
research, education, community outreach, and public service The 
approach is holistic, emphasizing human ecology The curriculum places 
special emphasis upon the family and the community as mediating 
structures in determining life quality The jobs for which the curriculum is 
designed include counseling, program management, research, advocacy, 
and service delivery 

Graduates of the department obtain positions in human service 

agencies, consulting firms, voluntary organizations, and Federal, State, 

and local governments Their specific jobs may be in area agencies or 

organizations such as the Federal Drug Administration. Planned 

Parenthood, youth services, family services, or senior citizens programs 

There are three interrelated majors offered by the department 

/. Family Studies. This course of study stresses a working 

knowledge of the growth of individuals throughout the life span with 

particular emphasis on intergenerational aspects of family living It 

examines the pluralistic family forms and life styles within our post- 

technological complex society and the development of the 

individual within the family within the community 

//. Management and Consumer Studies. Withm this major are two 

specializations (a) program management and (b) consumer 

affairs The focus is upon the efficient and effective utilization of 

organizational and other community resources 

///. Community Studies. This maior stresses community development, 

community organization, and advocacy and their relevance to 

families In general there is an emphasis upon the processes and 

methods for social change, as well as the individuals, organizations 

or groups which act as agents of change 

Each of these courses of study includes a set of major subject courses 
offered primarily within the department plus a sequence of supporting area 
courses which may be taken outside the department or in an 
interdepartmental combination Examples ot supporting areas include the 
aging, the disabled, human service, children's issues, management, health, 
public administration, rehabilitation, and urban affairs Students are 
strongly encouraged to consult with an appropriate advisor in developing 
their course of study 

There are parallel requirements for each of the department's three 
majors (family studies, management and consumer studies, and 
community studies) Each maior requires a fifteen-credit set of core 
courses (a department-wide core of twelve credits and a maior-specific 
three-credit course), an additional fifteen credits drawn from a list of major- 
relevant departmental courses, and an eighteen-credit thematic set of 
supportive area courses To graduate, students must also meet the 
requirements of the campus (e g . those specified in the University Studies 
Program) and of the College ot Human Ecology Students should consult 
the current Undergraduate Catalog and department Majors Guide and 
also see an appropriate department advisor The maior requirements are 
as follows
