In it s brief his t o r y. th e Un iver sity of South Florida has had only tw o presidents. The founde r and chief architec t of th e new university was Dr. J o hn Allen. an astronomer and educato r who


se rved as USF's first president from 1956-1970 (Dr. Harris W Dean se rved as Acting President fr o m July 1970 to February 197 1.) Dr. Ceci l Mackey. economist and lawyer. became the U niversit y's seco nd president o n February I. 1971. and is presentl y leading th e University in its second deca de of d evelopment. Now in its nineteenth year of exi s tence. the Universi t y has graduat ed more than 27, 000 student s eighty percent of whom r es ide in Florida-and served almost 200.000 persons in credit and n o n-credit cour ses. Enrollment in the fall of 1974 totaled more than 2 1 .000 and projections indic a t e that USF will enroll m o r e th a n 30.000 students on perhaps as many as five campuses b y the end of thi s decade. The University's economic impact on the a re a is equally significant: now exceeding $ 100 million annually. B eca u se of its location and the compos ition of its student body.

PART OF THE MODERN METROPOLITAN ENVIRONMENT Accessibility U niver s it y o f South Florida campuses form a string of anchor r o int s for a metropolitan area rapidl y becoming a megalopolis a l o ng the West Coast of Florid a. USF campuses are within reach of more tha n two million people -roughly a quarter of the State's populatio n in the 12-county area they se rv e. The Tampa Campus of the University is located on a 1.694-acre tract ten miles northeast of downtown Tampa. a city of over a quarter of a million people. The campus is midway be tween U.S. 41 a nd 301 on State Highway 582 (Fowler Avenue). tw o mile s east of 1-75. The St. Petersburg Campus is l oca ted o n Bayboro Harbor in downtown St. Petersburg. a city of m o r e than 235. 000 people. The campus se rve s some 620 000 people living in Pinellas County. The Fort Myers Campus is located a t th e s ite of the Gwynne Institute Building in downtown Fort M yers and serves the people o f Fl o rida's lower West Coast. Plans are being finalized for the USF Sarasora Campus for upper division and graduate st udy. Mission As the State's .first metropolita n univers ity. a prototy pe of th e univer s it y of the future. the U nivers it y of South Florida from its beginning has sought to apply the tal e nt s of its scholars and students to the peculiar ills besetting m odern society. In this way. USF has sought to accomplish the s pecial mission in the State University System se t out for it in the Comprehen s i ve Developmenr Plan (CODE) of th e Stare U ni versitr Sr. Hem of" Florida (1969): The creation and dev elopmen t of instructional. research a nd public service programs "oriented toward the solutio n of problems peculiar to the modern urban environment." ACHIEVING THE UNIVERSITY'S MISSION: MEASURES OF SUCCESS Students Served Si nce opening its doors in September of 1960 the U ni versity of South Florid a has been dedicated to accomplishing this special mission in the modern metropolitan environment. One measure of our s u ccess is reflected in the composition of our student body: More than 90 percent of our students are Floridians and over 80 percent of our graduates reside in the State. More than two-thirds of our students commute to class from their homes throughout the Tampa Bay area. Over o ne-third of our student bod y are part-time students. and 40 percent are employe d fro m o ne t o 40 hours per week M o re than two-thirds of all USF students a re 21 or older and almost one-third of our students are married. Almost 60 percent of USF's 27.000 graduates reside in the Greater Tampa Bay Area. The majority of upper divi sion students are transfers from other institutions. Programs Offered A measure of success in accomplishing the University's mission and one more significan t than mere statistics is the nature of our academic programs. Through them we have sought to serve an increasingl y urban State and nation. These programs are in th e Academic Affairs division of the University and, for the most part. are administered in one of our nine colleges: Arts & Letters. Bus iness Administration. Education. Engineering. Fine Arts. Medicin e. Natural Sciences. Nursing. a nd Social & Behavioral Sciences. In this publication are discus se d th e major academic program s in the University. Through them we serve the people of Fl o rida through the instruction of students. the advancement of kn o wledge and community service.

HISTORIC GOALS OF THE UNIVERSITY And speakin g of goals As a university. USF is a regional institution of higher learning consisting of schools or colleges on several sites and offering programs in the liberal arts as well as in a number of professional areas. However. it is more than this: it is a place where new knowledge i s sought. and old knowledge is synthesized in new ways through research and scholarship for the benefit of mankind. As such. the university differs from a technical or vocational school where the detailed techniques of a trade are learned by practice. The university -the modern metropolitan university deals with professional areas more in theory than in practice. providing the broad background and understanding necessary to the development and refinement of specific skills. In this way it develops th e intellectual judgments necessarv to deal with the constantly changing problems o f a given profession. A university. moreove r. i s not simply a place t o prepare for a profession. important as that goal may b e. One of its most important functions is providing youind eed. all its students with a better understanding of life in a raridly changing world.

Notations of Grades. Academic Warning. and Disqualification are post ed t o the student's permanent record. When a student is disqualified from the U ni versi t y. not eligi ble to r e -enroll. it may be in his or her best interest to re-evaluate hi s ed ucation a l goals with an academic adviser in his college. I f the student 's poor academic performance has resulted from extenuating circumstances or if after a period of time the student feels h e o r she has gained adequate maturity and motivation. h e may petition the Academic Regulati o n s Committee for readmission. See "Acad emic Regul a ti o n s Committee" for information on petitioning. Grading System A studen t 's measure of academic achievement is recorded on hi s permanent record based on the following grad ing sys tem: A -Superior performance B Excellent performance C -Average performance D B e low average performance. but passing F -Failure S -Satisfactory U -Unsatisfactory W -Withdrawal from course without pen a lt y H H onors ( M edical students o nly) I Incompl ete N -Audit Grade Point Average The U ni versity has a four-point system of grading used in computing grad e point averages (A=4 grade points. B=3. C=2, D= I. F=O.) The grade point average is computed by dividing the total number of quality points b y the t o tal h ours attempted at t h e U ni vers it y of South Flor i d a. The t o t al quality points are figured b y multiplying the number of credit s assig ned to each course b y the qualit y p o int va lue of the grade give n Grades of S. U.

The method by whic h a student recei ves an "S" or "U" grade in an option course will consist of the followi ng: 1 A written agreement signed by both instructor and stud en t s h all be filed with s uch offices as may b e designated by th e Colle ge. The college shall set the deadline (no later th a n th e la s t day of classes for the term) for the student to decide if he wishes t o take the course on an S i U basi s 2 The instructor s h all assign final letter grades A B.

This point of view is central in the philosophy of the University of South Florida Library. A library is good, not because of the volumes it has but becau se it is used by people who derive personal benefit from its use and who produce something as a result of its use that will be of benefit to our society The Library staff wants students to regard books as a way of life and use the Library regularly. One of the reasons for providing a library collection is to encourage students to buy, read and discuss books. The University expects students to become thoroughly familiar with the U niversit y Library book

Division of Sponsored Research Research is an important aspect of thP educational programs of the University of South Florida. Faculty members are encouraged to pursue research activities and many students participate in research and training projects supported by funds awarded to the University by public a nd private granting agencies. Research is integrated with the instructiona l program. The Division of Sponsored Research is the central coordinating unit for research and other sponsored educational a ctivitie s The new Medical Center on the campus. It provides information about granting agencies and serves as a consultation c enter for faculty who de s ire help in drafting research proposals. All proposals seeking outside support are transmitted by this office. Although the Division o f Sponsored Res ea rch operates primarily for the benefit of th e faculty. students wh o have an appropriate interest in research are welcom e to visit the office. From its beginning. USF faculty and staff have been active in the search for new knowledge and actively concerned about the world in which they live. Supported by private and public grants. they have pushed back the frontiers of current knowledge and applied their findings to the solutions of pressing contemporary problems. Since 1960. they have attracted ove r 1 200 grants. totaling more than $38 million. and have ge nerated over 10. 000 separate scholarly and creative contributions to human knowledge and understanding. Many of these projects were basic research : others invo lved the practical application of new knowl edge t o improve the quality of life in thi s a re a : still other projects m a de the s p ec ial training and knowledge of USF faculty and staff available to elected political leaders o r ga ni zations workin g for so cial betterment. religiou s and educatio nal institu tions and busine sses large a nd small.

BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION General Business Administration Students with special objectives and career interests have the opportunity to develop an undergraduate program to meet these needs. Working closely with a facult y adviser. students may design an approved plan of study over and above the unde rgraduate business core. Essentially business and non-business electives are blended to best meet special needs. The Master of Business Administration The Master of Business Administration degree program is designed to enable persons with diverse backgrounds to develop the skills and insights essential for management personnel in busi ness and not-for-profit organizations. Built into the program is the flexibility to meet the needs of students with backgrounds in engineering. the sciences and the humanities. as well as those with undergraduate training in administration. The learning environment blends work in structured s ituations where students gain command of analytical techniques. together with work in comprehensive unstructured applications which sharpen students' resourcefulness in sorting our complex problems and selecting optimal courses of action. Emphasis throughout the program is on problem-solving skills. Courses are scheduled to accommodate students already employe d who are seeking an opportunity to upgrade and broaden their professional interests. as well as students wishing to pursue full-time studies. The program is designed so that parttime students who can attend classes only in the evening can complete th e program in a rea sonable period. Full-time students may complete the program in a year. 47 The M B.A. program permits a student t o become a gen eralist. but th ose who wish to do so may specialize in a limited extent by e l ec tin g an emph asis in Finance or in Marketing.

Ind eed. the very breadth of economics has led to major areas within th e discipline. including labor economics. international e conomics. urban and regional economics. monetary economics. rublic finance industrial organization. comparative economic s ystems. and the like. In the undergraduate rrogram. students arc grounded in economic theory and economic statistics to facilitate the investigation of the problems of human behavior. decision-making. and organizational effectiveness in these problem areas. Students majoring in economics are encouraged to supplement their programs with courses in other business and socia l science subjects. Management. finance marketing. account ing. political science psychology. sociology and others contribute greatl y to an enriched plan of study. A student may plan the best possible program to help him achieve his particular career objecti ves. Similarl y. a variety of courses in economics permit studen t s majoring in other disciplines to acquire the skills and insights provided in economics. Graduate program in Economics The Master of Arts degree in Economics permits students to select one of two general approaches. The first emphasiz es terminal professional training to prepare the student for decision making and problem solving roles in business. governmental agencies. a nd other organizations.

COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING '-"" Have you ever felt you would like to be the "somebody" who will do "something" about the many problems we face? Our modern society requires new. practical solutions to its many complex technological problems. Spearheading this action will be the engineer and the engineering profession. The engineer. as always. will continue to be responsible and obliged to use his / her knowledge for the benefit of mankind. The increasingly rapid changes in our life style place an ever stronger responsibility to society and our future on both those who are providing the engineering education as well as those who are being educated. The Colle ge of Engineering recognizes this in its approach to the education of tomorrow's engineers as well as in the content of the other programs under its direction which are vital to the technological progress of our society. Its curricul a provide for an individual's development in both t echnical competency and human values. The programs offered by the College of Engineering to meet the diverse requirements of the future can be broadly divided into two areas: PROFESSIONAL E:>:GINEERING and APPLIED SCIENCE A:-.:D TECHNOLOGY. The degrees and services associated with these areas are as follows: Professional Engineering Degree Programs Bach e lor of Science in Engineering degree (Professional Program)-various options Master of Science in Engineering degree (Thesis or Project) Master of Engineering degree (Non-Thesis) Applied Science and Technology Degree Programs Bachelor of Science in Engineering Science degree-Computer Science Option Bachelor of Science in Engineering Science degree-other options Master of Science in Engineering Science degree-Computer Sci ence Concentration Master of Science in Engineering Science degree-other concentrations Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering Science degree (Florida S tate University transfer) Bachelor of Engineering Technology d eg ree Computer Science Service Courses (Undergraduate and Graduate) The above spectrum of program o ff e rings prov ides the prospective student with a choice of avenues depending upon individual interests and capabilities for a sign ificant technologica l contribution. These programs are described in more detail under their respective catalog headings. Laboratory experience as well as real-world participation in technologica l problem-solving is a ke y aspect of a professional engineer's or a technologist's college education. The College of Engineering. in implementing this need augments its own modern laboratory and research facilities b y close contact with the professional socie tie s and the many industries in the metropolit a n Tampa Bay area. Students interested in particular programs offered by the College of E ngineering should address their inquiries to the College of Engineering marked for the attentio n of the following: Area of Interest Cunracr Engineering Professional Specific department or Program Office of the Dean Engineering Scie nc e Office of the Dean Computer Science Coordin ator for Computer Engineering Technology Teachers-Engineering Concepts Computer Science Service Courses Sci e nce D epartmen t of Electrical and E lectronic Systems Coordinator for Engineering Technology Regional Center-Engineering Concepts Cu rricu I um Project Department of Industrial S ystems PROFESSIONAL ENGINEERING The Engineering programs of the College have be e n developed with an emphasis on three broad aspects of engineering activity --des ign research. and the operation of complex technological systems. S tudents who are interested in advanced design or research should pursue the Five-Year Program leading to the Maste r of Science in Engineering degree. Other students interested more in operational responsibilities may wish to complete their initi a l engineering education a t the baccalaureate level. For this purpose a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree is offered which provides the student a broad education with s ufficient technical background to effectively contribute in many phases of Engineering not requiring the depth of knowledge needed for advanced design or research. The College of Engineering recognizes that modern engineering solutions draw on knowledge of several branches of engineering It a lso recognizes that future technological and societ a l developments will lead to shifting of the relative emphasis on various branches of engineering. triggered by new needs or a reas sessment of national goals. For this reason the College's program includes a strong engineering foundation (core) portion. 59 designed to equip the prospective engineer with a broad base of fundamental. technical knowledge. To this foundation is added the student's s pecialization (option) of sufficient depth to prepare him/her to successfully embark on a professional career. While the baccalaureate degree is considered the minimum educational experience for participating in the Engineering profess ion. and as such the first professional degree students are strongl y encouraged to pursue advanced work beyond the baccalaureate either at this or other institutions. It is becoming increasingly evident that a large segment of today's Engineering professio n is involved in some form of post baccalaureate study. Engineers are earning advanced degrees in ever increa s ing numbers in order to obtain the information and training necessary to meet tomorrow's technological challenges. All are faced with the continuous problem of refurbishing a nd updating their information skills and most are obtainin g advanced information by means of seminars. special institutes and other such systems designed for this purpose. The Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree program. which requires 20 I quarter hours. and th e five year program leading


60 COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING to the Master of Science in Engineering degree. which is a n inte g rated program of 246 4uarter hours. are th e programs specif icall y designed to prepare an individual for a professional career as an engineer. Both programs have as their foundations a 152 4uarter hour core of subject material encompassing Humanities. Social Science. Mathematics. Scie n ce. a nd E ngineering which is re4uired of all students. In addition t o th e core subjec t material each student will complete a specialization o pti o n under th e direction of one of the administrative departments of the College. Those options which are available and th e administ rative unit responsible for the options are as follows : Op1io11 Depanmenl Gener a l All Departments Chemical Energy Conver sio n & E l ectrical Industrial M ec hanical Structures. M ateria l s & Fluid s M echanical Design Electrical & Electroni c Systems Industrial Systems Energy Conver sion & Mechanical Design Structures. M a terial s & Fluids The E n gineers' Joint Coun cil for Professional Deve lopment has insp ec t e d and accredited the curricula of the College. of Engi neering defined b y the E l ec tri cal. Industrial. Mecha111cal. a nd Structures. Materials & Fluids options. Preparation for Engineering The high sc hool student a nti cipa tin g a career in e n gineeri n g s hould elec t the strongest academi c program that is available while in high school. Four years each of Englis h mathematics and science (preferably including C hemistry a nd Physics). as well as full program s in the social sc ienc es and humanities. arc most important to succe ss in any engineering colle ge A foreign language. w hil e not a n ecessity provides a desirable background for studen t s. many of whom will continue fo r a d va nc e d stu dy. Prospect ive s tudents w h o are considering engineering at the University of South F lorida who lack ce rt ai n preparation in high sc hool should e l ect to follow a program w hi ch will assist them in overcoming th e ir d eficienc i es. One alternative might b e th at such a stude nt selec t a summer program at the U111vers1ty of South Florida t o upda t e knowledge in mathematics and the ph y sical sciences. Another alternative might be for th e p ros p ective Engi neering student to tak e some remedial work and a l ess accelerated program at th e Unive rsit y of South Florida. For financial or ot h er reasons. student s may wish t o avail themselve s of th e s t a t e's sys t e m of j unior colleges w hi c h offer a wide range o f remedial course work. and many of which a lso offe r full programs in pree n gineering (first two years' cour se work). T h e u ni versi t y of South Florida offers all requir ed pre-e ngmeerm g courses eve r y quarter. Therefore. every studen t can sta rt the program a t that point w h e r e his / her prior education t ermmated. a nd can proceed from that point at a ra t e commensurat e with th e studen t 's capability and tim e availa bilit y. Junior college students pla n n in g to transfer t o th e Un iversit y of South Florida's engineering program at th e juni o r l eve l from a State of Florid a o perat ed college o r university should plan to graduate wit h a n A.A. degree. thus completing their general education re4uirements. All t ra n sfer students s h o uld a lso complete as much of th e mathematics. sc i e nc e and engineering core course work as i s availabl e to th e m The University's College o f Engi neering is available t o assist j unior colleges in the development of course material and in the training of s taff for their offering of applicable core pree n g ineerin g course work. Junior college transfe r s tud e nt s should note that in addition t o freshman and sophomore level courses. all required junior l eve l courses are given each quarter. thus permitting full continuity in studies for the st ud en t at all times. T h e Colle ge of Engineering can assis t students who a r e planning to obtain an Engi neering degree from the U ni ve r s ity of South Fl o rid a and who have started th eir studies elsewhere in formula tin g a sound t o t a l program. Int eres t ed stude nt s s hould contact the Dean's Office furnishing sufficien t detail to permit meaningful res p o ns e. Admission to the College Freshmen a nd t ra nsfer studen t s may e lect t o enter th e Colle ge of E n ginee rin g's profess i o n a l e ngin ee rin g program upon initial entry into the U niv ersi t y by declaring the Bachelor of Science in E ngin eering degree program as th e ir major. If not declared o n initi a l entry. a stude nt can at a n y time declare his / h e r intent to purs u e th e Bachel o r o f Science in Engineering degr ee prog r a m b y applying in person in th e Advising Office o f th e College T o qualify for admiss i o n a student mus t have b ee n accepted b y th e University as a d egree-seeking student. must be in good academi c standing. a nd must be o therwi se acceptabl e t o th e College. P o t e nti a l e ngineerin g students s h o uld note that the. c riti ca l course st ru cture of th e e n gineering program makes it desirable t o enter th e program as soon as the interest in a nd potential ability fo r e ngin ee rin g is r ecognize d. Students should note that the c haracteris tics of th e e n gineerin g program do n o t r equire an ide ntifi cation of th e area of engineering specili za ti o n (option) at the tim e of d eclaring e ngineering as a major. Students n eed t o make thi s decision n o l a t e r than th e ir junior year. Engineering Advising Effective pursuit of e ngin ee rin g studies requir es careful a tt e ntion to b o th th e sequence a nd th e t y p e of courses taken The e n ginee r ing curriculum differs in key respec t s from th e study plans of o ther majors eve n in th e freshman year. It is therefore impo rt a nt th a t each s tud en t plans a curriculum with. a nd has it approved by. a facult y a d v i se r in the College of E n g in ee rin g Students new to th e Un i vers it y and students transfe rrin g from o ther colleges within th e U ni ve r sity must contact th e Coordina tor of E ngine e rin g Advi si n g in th e Dean's Office for a fac ult y a d vise r assignme nt prior t o or during their first regi s t ration. (Normally th e new stude nt is assigned a n a d v iser and advi sed fo r th e initial quarter as part of the U ni ve rsit y's Orientation pro-gram for n e w students.) Students who have m a d e a decision regarding the engmeering option they plan t o follow are assigned a faculty adviser in th e department corresponding to their int e r est. Students who have d ecided to follow a program of engineering studies but who a r e undecided o n th e specialt y are advised in th e Dean's Office. The s tud e nt a nd adviser jointl y work out a pl a n of study which m eets b o th the stude nt 's career object i ves a nd the College of Engineering's degree require m e nts. A stude nt may change advisers with th e concurrence of the new a d vise r a nd the Dean' s Office. The a d visers maintain the Colle ge of Engineerin g's stud e nt records.

APPLIED SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY Several degree programs and a se rie s of courses are offered b y the Colle ge of Engineering which are designed for students who do not wis h to pursue professionall y oriented degree programs in engineering but who wish to obtain a technical background coupled with other interests. The programs available can be broadly divided into tw o areas: ENGINEERING SCIENCE and ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY and are discussed in more detail below. Engineering Science Engineering Science is an applied science discipline which relates to new and innovative areas of endeavor at the frontiers of tech nologic a l development and research It represents a marriage between basic science and its utilization in such varied fields as computer sc ience biolog y. social and environmental sciences. applied mathematics. ocean engineering. and energetics The common denominator to this wide range of subjec ts is a strong foundation in rigorous scientific and engineering principles and practices. This training provides a most desirable background for graduate s tud y in the areas of concentration mentioned and in other professional areas such as law medicine. and business. Preparation for Engineering Science Students anticipating pursuit of studies in Engineering Science should follow the guidelines given for Engineering in this bulletin when planning their high sc ho o l and/ or community college s tudi es. Admission to Engineering Science Admissions requirements and procedures a re the same as for Engineering. Engineering Science Advising Students pursuing a course of study in Engineering Science are assigned to an adviser who is familiar with th e requirements of this program and whose special interests match th e student's specializatio n objectives. Comments and requirements spe lled out in the sec tion on Engineering Advising in this bulletin are a pplicable to this program. FOUR-YEAR PROGRAMBACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN ENGINEERING SCIENCE DEGREE The College of Engineering offers a curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Science degree which stresses the scientific aspects of engineering. The curriculum is a four year program with a minimum requirement of 180 quarter hours, providing the student with an unusual depth of study in mathematics. sc ience and engineering without limiting the opportunities to broaden one's education in humanities and social scie nces The exact composition of the curriculum followed by a given student is determined b y the student with the advice and consent of the academic adviser. and based on the option chosen. An o ption in Computer Science provides a continuum of training and knowledge in the foundations of information processing. Courses range from studies in software and programming, data structures, operating systems, and systems analysis to the analysis of computer architecture and organization. logic design. automata theory, hardware simulation, and reliability

Air Condit ioning Engineering Technology Computer Sys t ems Techn o l ogy Construction Technology E l ec tri ca l Power Engi neering Technology Electronics T ec hnology Indus trial Engineering Technology M a na gement Engineering Technol ogy These areas are designed t o complement the technical work received a t th e community colleges and would not n ecessa r ily be in the same field in whic h the A.S. degree i s awarded. Students entering this program will have their tra nscript annotate d as to th e institution from which their technical training was rec eive d as well as their technica l s pe cializatio n as designated by that institution. Admission In gene ral. s tud en t s are expected t o have successfully completed an Associate of Science degree in Engineering Technology at a community college or t o have accomplished equivalent work. Normally. the s tudent should have completed a minimu m of mathematics through applied integral calculus and a non-cal c ulu s phys ics seq u e nce I f the student's performance in his commun ity col l ege program indicates a reasonable probabilit y of s u ccess in the Bachelor o f Engin eeri n g Techno logy program. th e studen t w ill be admitted t o USF. S tudent s are required t o complete a minimum of 90 addition al quarter hours to receive the Bachelor of Engineering Technology degree. Becau se thi s evaluation procedure is unique to the Bach e lor of Engineering Techno l ogy program. the app lica t ion for admission should clearl y indicate th e desired major field as "Engineering Technology."

Willard L. Boyd. President University of Iowa The College of Fine Arts serves the three-fold purpose of providing programs of study. theatres of practice. and programs of events for the University family. the surrounding community. and the citizens of the State of Florida. Its prime objectives are: ( l) to provide a broad but thorough education dedicated to the development of professional excellence in th ose who are highl y talented in the fine a rts (2) to foster this feeling and commitment to aesthetic excellence in those pre parin g for teaching. and (3) to provide curricular studies and extracurricular activities designed to e nrich the lif e of the general Universi t y s tud e nt and contribute to the overall human environment of the University community. In addition to offering degree programs in the departments of Art. Dance. Mu s ic. a nd Theatre Arts. the college is the home of the Florida Center for the Arts. the GRAPH!CSTUDIO, and SYCOM. Programs in art education and music education are offered jointly by the College of Fine Arts and the College of Education. Studio and hi story courses in art. vocal and instrumenta l music for th ese programs are offered by the College of Fine Arts. (See programs under the College of Education.) Florida Center for the Arts In 1968 the University of South Florida created the Florida Center for the Arts as a unit within the College of Fine Arts. The various personn e l a nd fine a rt s programs on campus were con solida ted into one administrative structure to more efficiently concentrate on all three areas of the universi t y's responsibility education. research and community service The functions of the Florida Center for th e Arts are as follows: I To initiate and conduct programs which will bring students and the general public into contact with the highest level of professio nal activity in all the arts. 2. To offer opportunities for students and public to have direct contact with professional artists. 3. To conduct programs which will a llow opportunity for specialized professional study or training in areas not covered b y the regular academic structure of the lJ niversity. 4 To develop programs which can relate the public school system to professional cultural activity. 5. To sponsor research and develop research facilities relati v e to the development of the arts. 6. To create exhibition and performance programs avail able for use on campus and throughout the state. 7. To plan and develop ph ysica l facilities for the Florida Center. 8. To conduct conferences. seminars and symposiums in the arts for general public exposure. 9. T o make available professional consultant services. 67 10. To provide a technical and design center for the performance areas in the College of Fine Arts. The Florida Center is a service unit to the academic departments of the College and, also. supplements their educational functions with imported professional activity of th e hi g hest quality. The Center sponsors the performing artist se ri es. th e film art series. exhibitions in three galleries and residencies of profes sional dance companies. In conjunction with the academic departments. it co-sponsors visits of performing a nd vis ual a rti s t s to the GRAPHICSTUDIO and other programs. The activities of the Center allow personal exposure of students to important cre ative t a lents and offer the serious Fine Arts major an invalua bl e educational opportunity. Visiting Artists and Artists-in-Residence Programs: The remarkable extent, the wide di ve rsity and th e superlative quality of the programs initiated a nd conducted by the Florida Center for the Arts reflects the des ire of a major uni versity and its College of Fine Arts to use its resources for the broadest possible educational and cultural advantages. Only a partial listing of individual a rtists and performi ng groups of outstanding caliber sponsored by the Florida Center for the Arts includes : John Cage The Guarneri String Quartet Lorin Hollander The Julliard String Quartet The New York Pro-Musica Elizabeth Schwartzkopf More extensive lists of professional artists and performing organizations appear in this Bulletin under the sections of the s pecific units in the College of Fine Arts in which research d emonstration. teachin g and other educational activities have directly instructed and otherwise benefited students.

The development of the studio has been substantially aided by contributions from The National Endowment for the Arts. Washington. D.C.; The Syracuse China Corporation, New York : from students and local patrons. GRAPH!CSTUDIO at the University of South Florida was established to facilitate the production of prints in an atmosphere in which the artist is freed from the pressures of a commercial atelier. Artists are invited to participate for a period t otaling approximately six weeks for proofing and editioning of their work. The workshop is devoted to technical excellence and ex peri mentation within a framework flexible to the need s of the a rti st. It is a non-profit studio which prides itself o n the multiplicit y of activities that it serves. Besides being a re so urce to the artist. it serves as a vehicle through which students a nd the community can have the opportunity to communicate with some of the most innovative artists on the current scene.

SY COM The S y stems Complex for the Studio and Performing ArtsSYCOMprovide s staff. courses of study, service and facilities t o encourage active participation in ongoing art research by facult y and students in the College. members of the University c ommunity, citizens in the Tampa Bay area and distinguished artists and scientists in residence. The facilities. already equipped and operating in SYCOM. are : Digital Studio-The PDP 11 /IO computer provides an advanced. state-of-the-art sys tem for innovative teaching and research in computer assisted music composition. graphic. spatial. kinetic and filmic arts. Digital-to-analog as well as analog-todigital converters interface the computer with various voltage controlled device s Analog Studio-Two Moog-I 0 synthesizers. a JOO-series Buchla Electronic Music System. multi-channel tape machines and a master console for 16-channel quad-mixing are th e heart of the analog system for SY COM. Each unit is capable of being controlled by the PDP 11 /IO. Real-Time Applications is a small recording studio and workshop for electronic music performance experiments. Video Studio. still in the planning stage propos es the acquisition of a graphic display unit to interface with the PDP 11/10, making possible the synt he sis and control of light design on the face of a cathode ray tube. Sys tem s Research Lab maintains. coordinates and interfaces the various s tudies of SY COM. SYCOM serves all areas of the College of Fine Arts. as a meeting place for students. faculty artists and scientists. whose interaction stimulates creative research and teaching in arttechnology. The facilities technical staff. and faculty associated with SYCOM make possible an array of courses related to various areas of art-technology: Both the Elec tronic Music Sequence and the Film and Video Sequence offer comprehensive programs of study through the undergraduate years. as well as graduate study. Future art-tech workshops and expansion of current course offer ings. particularly in art. theatre and dance. will enhance the program further. In SYCOM. individual or group projects. sponsored by SYCOM or b y extramural granting agencies are highly appropriate. Project results are manifest in public lectures performances, reports. publications. ex hibits. or in large theatrical events and special workshops. often in contexts such as Sound Gallery. the Eve nt /Complex Series. SONOGRAPH. SYCOM Report. and the summer teaching program. Art-Tech Workshop. Interdisciplinary Study In spite of the fact that an undergraduate interdisciplinary degree program is not formally offered in the College of Fine Arts. it is nevertheless possible for a student to pursue what amounts to an interdisciplinary program of study in the College when the student is able (or when he sees fit) to utilize the 35 hours of Free Electives allowed him toward that end. To suggest an example. an arts-oriented student may be equally (or almost equally) interested in two of the four undergraduate degree disciplines offered by the respective departments in the College of Fine Arts-Art, Dance. Music. Theatre Arts (the Bachelor of Arts degree in each case) To further extend the example. the student might complete the major course requirements in the Art department (and. with other requirements met. receive the B.A. degree in Art) and at the same time utilize all of his 35 Free E lecti ve hours for course work in th e Music department. A student majoring in Art might also divide his 35 Free Elective hours between the Departments of Music. Theatre Arts. and Dance for an even broader interdisciplinary approach. A student wishing to be involved in more than one area in the Coll ege should consult with his major department adviser or with the Coordinator of Advising in the College to determine if an interdisciplinary sequence of study might be tailored to suit his particular needs. BACCALAUREATE LEVEL DEGREE PROGRAMS The life of the arts. far.from being an interruption. a distraction. in th e life o f a nati o n. is ver.v cl o se to the center of a nation s purp os e -and is a t est of the qualit v of a nation's civilization. John F. Kennedy Admission to the College A freshman s tud en t may elect to enter the Colle ge of Fine Arts a s a potential major in one of the four departments as early a s his initial entry into the University, provided that he has completed hi s fir s t advisory period with the Division of Univer sity Studies At th at time the new freshman has to correctly indicate his College and major choice. However. any student in the Uni v ersit y in good standing. at whatever level. at any time ( e ven in the middle of a quarter). can apply to change from another major or Undecided to a major in the College of Fine Arts irre s pective of and without affecting course work in progre ss. The student desiring to make this change must acquire his advising records from his present adviser and take them to the College of Fine Art' s advising office where new records will be initiated and maintained upon acceptance Transfer students and students from other units of this Uni versity with previous college or university fine arts course credits (art. dance. music theatre) must have such courses evaluat ed by meeting the appropriate portfolio o r audition requirements when they seek admission to the College of Fine Arts. These students are urged to make early arrangements for any n ecessary portfolio reviews or audition s. as well as advising appointments, since these must take place prior to course scheduling and registration. Further, students are required to take their own copies of their transcripts showing all previous college or university course work to advising. portfolio review and/ or audition appointments. Additional information may be obtained a nd appointments may be made by t elephoning or writing the College's advising office or the office of the department of particular interest. Programs Leading to the Baccalaureate Degree The College of F in e Arts has programs leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree in th e following fields: Art Music Dance Theatre Arts Advising in the College The College of Fine Arts operates a central advising office located in the Fine Arts Building staffed full time by the Coordinator,


his assistant, and a secretary. This central advising facility is open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon and I : 00 p.m. to 5 : 00 p m. throughout the University work year. It maintains the records of all major students in the College (art. dance. music. theatre) and provides on-going day-to-day academic advising and assistance to all students who seek it whether they are majors in the College or are potential new students or transfers from outside the University or from within. Upon admission to the College. the student with a declared major will be counseled in his selec tion of courses by an adviser from the major field. H e will then plan the remainder of his college program to fulfill his educational need s and satisfy requirements for the Bachelor of Arts degree. The Dean will generally supervise his progress and ulti mately certify the student for the degree Course Availability in the College Any student in the University may take any course in any one of the various programs in the College appropriate to his level when he has the prerequisites for the course and when there is a vacancy in the course at the time of the student's registration.

New Caledonia Singers and Dancers Norman Walker Dance Team Ballet Marjo MUSIC The Phakavali Dancers of Thailand Royes Fernandez Jacques D'Amboise Dena Madole Meredith Monk Luigi Carolyn Brown Susanna Hayman Chaffey Sandra Neels Betty Jones Barton Mumaw Since it opened its doors in September of 1960. rhe Music Deparrment at the Universitv of South Florida has moved rapidlv to become a highlr regarded University department whose stu dents have made distinctive achievements in their respective pro fessional fields. The Departmental Major: The music curriculum is designed for those students gifted in the performance and/or composition of music. Candidates for a major in music are required to pass an entrance examination in their respective performance and/ or composition areas. All new registrants are also required to take a placement examination in music theory and literature. Students may obtain dates and times for these examinations from the Music department office. Completion of these examinations is required before registration in music courses can be permitted. Academic Programs Offered Include: Bachelor of Arts degree with areas in performance (voice. piano and orchestral instruments) Composition Master of Music degree with areas in performance composition theory choral conducting Requirements for the B.A. Degree: All students seeking a degree in music are required to (I) complete successfully the secondary piano requirements as defined by the music faculty. (2) present a partial public recital during their junior year. (3) present a complete public recital during their senior year. (Composition majors must submit a portfolio of their compositions and arrange for a public performance of their works during their senior year). These requirements are in addition to the actual course requirements listed below. A total of 96 quarter hours is required as follows: 45 hours in Music Theory, History, and Literature and 36 hours in applied music or 36 hours in Composition for composition majors (a minimum of three quarters at the 450 level is required), and Music Senior Seminar (3 credits). Students enrolled for applied music must enroll for a minimum of one performing ensemble each quarter (ensemble(s) to be determined by the student's studio teacher). The minimum number of ensemble credits will total 12 hours. The above are basic music requirements. The Department of Music reserves the right to require additional remedial courses. Requirements for the M.M. Degree: General requirements for graduate work are given on page 41. In addition. the applicant for the Master of Music degree program will need to satisfy the following requirements in music before initial registration: (I) performance audition, and (2) placement examinations in music theory-literature. The specific program for each student will vary according to his needs and interests. Each program must be approved by the student's adviser in conformance with the guidelines established by the Graduate Music Committee. A minimum of 54 quarter hours is required. The responsibility for seeing that all graduation requirements are met rests with the student. The Faculty: USF's superior music faculty has been carefully chosen for its training, performing ability. and ability to teach. It is in every sense a team. This achievement has been demonstrated by such fine musical ensembles as the Faculty String Quartet. the Faculty Brass Quintet. the Ars Nova (faculty) Woodwind Quintet and the Faculty Chamber Pla y ers. Unique Learning Opportunities: The music department at the University of South Florida offers the student the opportunity to study with a distinguished faculty, work with the newest in creative equipment, and to be in the company of other superior music students for an extensive, exciting and exacting period of study. SYCOMThe Systems Complex for the Studio and Per forming Arts offers the student the opportunity to work with an unusually well developed electronic facility for creative research and compositional opportunity. Visiting Artists and Artists-In-Residence: The Department of Music utilizes guest composers, conductors. and performing musicians to enhance its offerings in terms of teaching faculty. forum appearances, and the conducting of musical programs. symposia, and clinics. Prominent musicians who have appeared in the past are Howard Hanson, Norman Delio Joio, Randall Thompson, Virgil Thomson. David WardSteinman. Walter Trampler. Fred Hemke. Eleazar de Carvahlo. Thomas Nee. Lucas Foss. Maurice Andre. John Haynie. Jean Pierre Rampal. and Julius Baker. Student Organizations: Sigma Alpha Iota, national professional music fraternity for women. and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, a professional music fraternity for men. are dedicated to serve the cause of music in America. Student Music Educators National Conference is an affiliate of the Music Educators National Conference and is open to all interested students. Financial Aid: The University has made available to highly qualified undergraduate students a number of music service awards. Usually these awards cover in-state tuition fees. and are distributed following open auditions held in January and February. The award is made for the following year for three of the four quarters. Available to graduate students who show special potential for creative contribution to the profession are the University Scholar Awards and graduate assistantships and fellowships. Additionally. loans. grants and work programs are available to qualified University of South Florida students. Financial aid is granted on need. academic promise and character. THEATRE ARTS The Departmental Major: Through its curriculum and production program, the Theatre Arts Department offers to seriously interested students the opportunity to prepare themselves for the beginning of a professional career in the Theatre or to continue their studies at the graduate level. In addition. students from other departments and colleges have the opportunity to study and participate in the work of the department. thereby allowing them to gain insight into the creative experience of Theatre.


After a thorough orientation t o all facets of the a rt gained in the ba sic courses. the Theatre Arts major may b egi n to concentrate in eithe r the a r ea of performa nce o r de sig n and technology. Throughout the student's course of s tud y contact is encouraged by the faculty in the student's chosen area o f concentration to help th e student re a lize his / her full p o t en ti a l a nd t o help maintain awareness of progress. To earn a major in Theatre Arts. the student mus t take a minimum of 64 quarter hours in Theatre. In addition to these. 28 hours of e lectiv es in th e Theatre Arts department may be taken to broaden either the general program or to purs ue a particular interest in more depth. Through the production program. which includes various performances for general audiences. children and department faculty and students the student has th e opportunity to participate in many differ ent ways. thereby gaining practical experience that is essential t o his /her development as a n a rti s t. For the more advanced acting student. opportunities sometimes arise for p articipation with other companies in the area. The Design / Technology area of the Florida Center (see description elsewhere in thi s section) offers to the advanced Tech and Design student opportunities to work with th e professional companies (Dance. COLLEGE OF FINE ARTS 73 Theatre a nd Mu s ic) that come to th e campus as a part of the University Artist Series and D a nce R es iden cy Program For all students. a broad involvement in all face t s of their field of concentration i s e ncouraged Visiting Artists and Artists In Residence: Despite the fact that the University is relatively young the Theatre Arts Department has had in residence artists from many kinds o f theatre and many countries including: London's West End.

76 COLLEGE OF NATURAL SCIENCES curricula or ma iors are available in Botany. Microbiology. and Zoology. a core of courses in Biolog y Chemistry. Mathematics. and Physics i s required of all student s The undergraduate may s pecialize in an a r e a of personal interest (for exampl e. marine biology. ecol o g y etc ) via elective courses. The und ergraduate program with 600 students who are majoring in one of these programs is designed to serve as prep f o r a terminal degree in biological s ciences. o r a s preparation for further study in graduate or professional sc hools. Pre-professional areas available include: pre-medicine. predcntistry pre-pharmacy. pre-veterinary medicine. pre-osteopathic medicine and pre-optometry. The graduate programs presently training 100 students lead to the M .A. d e gree in Botany Microbiology. or Zoology. and the Ph.D. in Biology. Areas of specialization for the Ph.D. are marine biolog y eco logy (tropical eco logy. population ecolog y and physiological ecology). physiology (cellular physiology. microbial ph y siolog y neurophysiology). systematics. and be havior. T h e Biolog y Department. composed of 33 faculty members. has a wide vari e t y of teaching and research laboratories and speciali z ed f a cilities a v ailable. Includ ed are aquarium rooms. animal rooms. growth chambers. greenhouses. botanical ga rd en. bota nical and zoo l ogica l specimen collections. a nd a 600 acre undisturbed eco l ogical research area for the study of aquatic a nd terrestrial e c o log v Both students and faculty have access to the university's computer. an IBM 360 / 65. CHEMISTRY The Department of Chemistry offers three degrees at the baccalaureate level. Bachelor of Arts degree in Chemistry, Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry and Bachelor of Science degree in Clinical Chemistry. a nd two degrees Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy. each with specia lization in the areas of analytica l chemistry biochemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemi s try and physical chemistry, at the graduate lev el. The chemistry facult y is comprised of 30 full-time senior faculty members all of whom hold the Ph.D. degree. A comparable number of teaching assistants. generally graduate students enrolled in the Ph.D. program, serve as instructors in the laboratories. The combination of a large and strong faculty with a wide va riet y of cour ses and e lective s provides students with programs of study which can be tailored to fit individual need s while m a in taining a sound background in all general aspects of chemistry. T h e B .A. curriculum is designed for the student who does not intend to become a professional chemist but whose career goals require a thorough understanding of chemistry. It is espe cially suited to the needs of pre-medical. pre-dental. pre-veteri nary. pre-engineering and like sc ience pre-professional stude nts. The B.S. degree affords a curriculum designed in accordance with the certification requirements of the American Chemical Society for students desiring a rigorous program as preparation for a career as a professional chemist or for graduate study in chemistry. The B.S. degree in Cli nical Chemistry, one of only a few suc h programs in th e country, is specifically designed to train personnel for thi s new a nd growing field of the medical profession; however the strong scien tific background and specific technical expertise provided by this program also afford the student an excellent preparation for graduate study in clinical chemistry biochemistry or medicine. In graduate work the excellent physical facilities and very low student-teacher ratio combine to afford unique opportuniti es for advanced study in chemistry. In addition to the five traditional fields. anal ytica l chemistry, biochemistry. inorganic. organic and physical chemistry. research opportunitie s a re a l so availabl e in s uch interdisciplinary and spec i alized areas as bioorganic chemistry, clinical chemistry, environmental chemistry, lasers and photochemistry. marine chemistry, organometallic chemistry. photoelectron spectroscopy (ESCA). physical biochemis tr y polymer chemistry. and pharmaceutical chemistry. GEOLOGY The Department of Geology offers programs leading to the B.A. and M.A. degrees. The broad scope of geology permits b o th undergraduate and graduate students to obtain employment in a wide variety of career positions. Opportunities are excellent in industry. various governmental agencies at the local. state. and federal l evel. and in some academic professions. Most emplo y ment in the l 970's will be in oil and other e n ergy related indus tries. environmental agencies. and the area of water resources. The undergraduate curriculum is designed to give the student a fundamental background in geology a nd the related fields of c hemi s tr y life sciences. mathematics, and physics. Ample flex ibility in th e program permits a modest amount of specialization at the undergraduate level. The graduate program leading to the M.A. degree i s t otally flexible within the U ni versi t y and College requirements. The student is allowed t o plan his program to sui t his major areas of interest. Such flexibility facilitates planning for a career or advanced graduate work. Although work is avail able in the broad spectrum of geo l ogic fields. the major areas of emphasis are hydrogeology. sedimentary geoc hemi s tr y. coastal sedimentation. environment al geo logy and paleoecology. There are currently 9 faculty members in the Department with 20 graduate st udents a nd 100 undergraduate majors. Laboratories are well equipped and field equipment includes a 19foo t outboard cruiser. a rotary drilling rig. and a 24-channel seism i c refraction apparatus. MARINE SCIENCE Bounded o n three sides by the Atlanti c Ocean. the Caribbean Sea, and th e Gulf of Mexico, Florida has a natural interest in th e marine environment. The sea is the earth's last frontier; and much research i s necessary to protect it from pollution. to utilize its resources. a nd to understand its relationship with the land. The department of Marine Scie nce studies the marine environment in a n organization that combines research with a teaching program l ead in g to th e masters degree. T he research interests of the department a r e widespread, and include s uch items as estuarine environmental studies, she lf and deep water investigations. hydrodynamic modeling. nutrient cycles, and aquaculture. With its headquarters conveniently located on the St. Petersburg campus at Bayboro Harbor, the department has excellent research and classroom facilities. including a fleet of small vessels ranging from 14' t o 36' in length Marine scie nti sts traditio n ally specialize in o ne of four basic research a re as: marine biology. marine chemistry. marine geol ogy. o r marine physics Thus, while the degree program in Marine Science is a t th e masters level students may prepare for graduate work by obtainin g a baccalaureate degree in one of these four a r eas. By a s uit a ble choice of marine oriented e l ec tive courses, a maj o r in Biology. Chemist ry, Geology, or Physics can b e an excellent ve hicle for entry int o a graduate program. Potentia l marine sc ien ces majors should consult with an undergraduate advisor concerning these baccalaureate majors. The field of Marine Science is destined to grow rapidly in all its subdi v i sio n s and offers great opportunities for indi viduals as our u se of the sea expands. MATHEMATICS The Department of Mathematics offers a div e r si t y of courses designed not o nl y to enable the student to pursue a profession in mathematics itself, but a l so to enhance his competence in the fields of engineering, th e physical sciences the lif e sc iences, and the social scie n ces The Department offers programs leading to the B A .. M.A .. and Ph.D. degrees. The undergraduate program emph asizes the broad nature of modern mathematics and its close association with the r eal world. The program is designed to pre pare students for entry into graduate school or careers in industry o r secondary education.


The D e p artment has a nexible Ph. D progra m which i s des igned to encourage students to take a n activ e role in the shaping of th e ir own curricula. This nexibility is coupled with a desire to promo t e interdisciplinary research The Department is composed of four areas. These areas a nd the re sea r ch areas a re as follows: I. Al gebra and Topology Numbe r theory. algebraic coding theory. general topology. t o p o logi ca l semigroups. 2. Analysis Abstract h armonic analysis. a b strac t measure theory. approxima ti o n and expans ions functional a n a lysis. geom e tric function theory. 3.

Additional information will be found in the Aging Studies Program section of the catalog. The LEISURE STUDIES PROGRAM is concerned with leisure in its broadest sense and provides a core of courses for interested udents. This program is presently housed in the Department of Interdisciplinary Social Sciences. The OFF-CAMPUS TERM PROGRAM offers a wide variety of opportunities for self-designed supervised experiences for credit. This program is presently housed in the Department of Interdisciplinary Social Sciences. The WOMEN'S STUDIES PROGRAM consists of courses designed to deal with historical. anthropological. sociological. and psychological aspects of women s role and of the female ex perience This program is presently housed in the Department of Interdisciplinary Social Sciences. The HUMAN SERVICES COURSES are designed for students interested in careers in the human sciences and services. and may be taken in conjunction with any major. or by special students. They are closely related to our Urban Community Psychology and Gerontology Program of Distinction and will be taught by qualified faculty from the various disciplines within the college. DEGREE PROGRAMS AFRO-AMERICAN STUDIES Afro-American Studies Program provides a quality undergraduate education leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree in AfroAmerican Studies. Essentially it is a service program which provides opportunities for all students to broaden the bases of their knowledge of the entire human experience and intercultural understanding so essential to living in a multi-racial society and a world that has become a global village. It provides a new horizon in liberal education that seeks reunification of the knowl edge of human experience and strikes at the narrowness and ethnocentrism of the traditional disciplines which have contributed much to race prejudice and misunderstanding. Part of its mission is to assist its black student clientele to achieve a more dignifying identity and fuller participation in the mainstream of American life It to help them to develop a greater awareness of themselves and their talents and to provide them educational and research opportunities necessary for the acquisi tion of understanding of political and economic realities and tools that must enable black people and other minorities to become effective determinants of their own political and economic life. AGING STUDIES Undergraduate Program Although no baccalaureate degree in gerontology is offered. the Aging Studies Program does provide a core of four courses at the undergraduate level. These courses range from AGE 30 I. Introduction to Gerontology. to AGE 405 Seminar in Selected Topics in Social Gerontology, and are designed as electives for students from a variety of areas. particularly the human service areas. More generally. the objective of the sequence of undergraduate courses is to provide students with a broad educational experience in gerontology. Graduate Program The primary objective of the graduate program in aging is to train personnel for leadership positions in the planning. development. delivery and evaluation of community services for older persons. In keeping with this objective, the program offers a broad range of cross-disciplinary courses. As an important part of the training process. each graduate student spends a supervised internship for one academic quarter in a community agenc y or facility which provides services for older persons. A Master of Arts degree in Gerontology is awarded upon satisfactory comple tion of the requirements. ANTHROPOLOGY Anthropology aims at comprehending man as a biological and social being lt is concerned with all forms of man th rough time and space. One consequence of this broad-ranging view is the presence within anthropology of four branches: physical anthropology. archaeology. cultural anthropology. and lin guistics. Exposure to anthropological information and th e cross cultural perspective produces heightened sensitivity in the student to the world about him. This helps the student to adopt an intel lectual posture of disciplined skepticism with respect to any scheme which purports to define and account for regularities in human life. The primary objective of the graduate program is to prov ide both basic education and specialized training in several specific fields of applied anthropology which will enable the graduate to render valuable and substantive service at local. state. national. and international levels in a context of non-academic. nonteaching employment. Graduates will be capable of assuming vital positions in the various agencies and institutions charged with understanding and acting on the complex problems which beset our society. COMMUNICOLOGY AUDIOLOGYAURAL (RE)HABILITATION SPEECH PA THO LOGY The Department of Communicology offers master's programs in the areas of Audiology. Aural (Re)Habilitation. and Speech Pathology. These programs are structured to meet the preparation requirements of the American Speech and Hearing Association for the Certificate of Clinical Competence or the national basic certification requirements of the Council on Education of the Deaf. Undergraduate students may apply for acceptance in the M.S. degree program upon attaining Junior class standing. com pletion of the Communicology College level course sequence with a 3.0 grade average. and submitting appropriate Graduate Record Examination scores.

ECONOMICS Requirements for B.A. Degree Economics i s one o f the vital discipline s investigating the complex problems a nd relationships in modern society. Indeed the very breadth of economics has led to major areas within the discipline including l abor economics, international economics urba n a nd regional economics, monetary economics. public fin a nce industrial organization. comparative economic sys tem s. and the like In addition, students are given a sound grounding in economic theory and economic s tatistics to facilitate the investigati o n of the problems of human behavior, decisionmaking and organizational effectiveness in these problem areas. Students majoring in economics are encourage d to supplement their programs with appropriate courses in other social sciences. Political science. psychology, sociology and others contribute greatly to an enriched plan of study. Similarly, a variety of courses in economics are designed to permit students majoring in other di sc ipline s to acquire the skills and insights provided in economics. Thus students have the option of broad inter disciplinary programs. a general grounding in many areas of economics. or a more intensive concentration in one of the areas within economics. Students typically enroll in college to increase their general understanding of the world and to gain access to a relatively remunerative and high -status job. Presumedly. these same considerations influence their choice of academic major and perh a p s even course selection. Many students have discovered that the undergraduate program in economics combines the broad liberal education focus of social science disciplines in gen e ral with the rigorous specialized training of engineering or bu s iness administration h e lpful in seeking employment after graduation. Students interested in majorin g in economics a r e encouraged to contact the dep artmental a d viser for more i nformation about th e program.

Geography as a discipline is designed t o account for the variable character of the earth 's su rface T h e two major divisions of geog r a ph y are phy s ical and cultural (human). Phvsi cal geog raphy includ es the s tud y of earth-sun relations hip s. weat h e r climate and natural features of the l a nd scape suc h as landforms. soils. vege t a ti o n and h ydrology. Cultural geograph y st udies peopl e. th eir vario u s cultures. l eve l s of t echnology. a n d eco nomic activities which operate differentiall y to alter the n atura l land sca pe Geograph y's overriding purpose i s to understand th e earth as th e h o me of man. A maj o r concern of geograph y i s t h e w i se use o f n atural. human. and eco n o mi c resources. T h erefore. ecological a nd environmental considerations are ce nt ral to the s tud y of geography. Students are encouraged t o take e l ec ti ve credits in a wide varie t y of di sci plin es because of th e cross -d iscip linary approach of geography. Both social and n a tural sciences are recommende d. Geography majors generally teach or work in various plannin g. res o urce m anagement. or consulting agen cies. both private a nd governmental a t all l eve l s local. sta t e. and federal. Requirements for the M.A. Degree In Geography General requirements for gradua t e work are listed in a preceding sec tion in this bulletin titled "Division of Graduat e Studies." All students must complete 45 h ours in graduate geograph y courses. following either a thes i s track or a n o n th esis teaching track. Specific course requireme nt s in a dditi o n t o six cor e courses are determined after a prelimin a r y o r a l examination which th e student takes earl y in the first quarter of graduat e e n rol lm e nt.

SOCIOLOGY As an undergraduate major, sociology provides students with three different kinds of program concentrations. One, attractive to the majority of possible students, may be described as "useful sociology." Many of the courses taken involve skills valuable in employment. For exilmpie, in a research methods course interviewing skills can be ti{ed in sales personnel work social action careers. management, as well as in research Simi larly careers which involve interpersonal relations can benefit enormously from courses in social psychology or small group

Also. pre-professional training. as in law school. busi ne ss administration. social work. and the like can re s t on courses that have "useful aspects in them. Another concentration can be styled that of libe ra l education." In thi s concentration. the central p o int i s the question of the n ature of man. the social being. Ex perience has shown that the truly liberall y educated person i s prepared for a variety of life experi e n ces because that person understands how to a sk important questions and how to go about getting answers. M o re importa ntl y. the liberall y educated p e rs o n i s equipped to take seriously the matter of being a human b e ing Sociology courses a re aimed l argely at problems o n the nature of one's social world. the nature of man collec tively and o n the individua l person -the student as a unique being. Finally sociology can be a maj o r in the sense that it rep r ese nts an intellectual discipline. Some students will find th a t EducationBusiness-Social Science patio it is interesting in it s own right and th at th ey would lik e to continue educati o n a l pursuits be yo nd the bachelor's d egree These different concentrations differ as muc h in the attitude of th e student taking the courses as in the selectio n o f courses m a king up the individual program of study. They are n o t logi cally distinct concentrations: any o ne course may have e l e m e nt s of all three. For exampl e. a stude nt maj o ring in sociology as an academic di sc ipline may at th e same time involve himself in ques tion s o f a l ibera l education and a t th e sa m e tim e pick up s kill s which will l ea d t o satisfying employment.
