General Information
THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO AT DENVER: AN URBAN UNIVERSITY CAMPUS
The University of Colorado at Denver (UCD) is one of four campuses of the University of Colorado. The urban, nonresidendal campus is located in downtown Denver, and is easily accessible to commuters. It is close to major business and government offices in downtown Denver, as well as to civic and cultural centers. UCD is one of the largest state-supported institutions of higher education in Colorado, with an average of 10,000 students enrolled during a semester. These students constitute the equivalent of 6,500 full-time (15 credit hours) students because of the availability of part-time education.
The UCD Administration Building is located at 1100 Fourteenth Street. UCD shares library, laboratory, classroom, and recreation facilities with the Community College of Denver-Auraria and Metropolitan State College on a single campus, the Auraria Higher Education Center.
Academic Programs
UCD is committed to meeting the needs of the metropolitan Denver community. Academic, public service, and research activities are geared to the demands of the urban population and environment. Both traditional and uniquely urban fields of study are available. Students enrolled at UCD can earn undergraduate degrees in some 37 fields and graduate degrees in 45 fields. The colleges and schools at UCD are:
College of Business and Administration and Graduate School of Business Administration
College of Design and Planning
School of Education
College of Engineering and Applied Science
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
College of Music
Graduate School
Gradute School of Public Affairs
The undergraduate colleges admit freshmen and offer programs leading to the baccalaureate degree in the arts, sciences, humanities, business, engineering, and music. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences also provides preprofessional training in the fields of education, law, journalism, and the health sciences (i.e., pre-medical, dental, nursing, pharmacy, and veterinary medicine). The School of Education offers programs leading to teacher certification to students with two years of college work. The Graduate School offers master’s programs in the arts, sciences, humanities, engineering, business, education, and music to students with baccalaureate degrees. The College of
Design and Planning, the Graduate School of Business Administration, and the Graduate School of Public Affairs provide programs leading to the master’s degree in their specialized areas. The Graduate School of Public Affairs also offers a doctorate in public administration.
For complete bachelor’s and master’s degree programs offered by UCD, see the Degree Programs at a Glance chart at the beginning of this bulletin.
The college and school sections of this bulletin describe specific policies on requirements for graduation, course requirements for various majors, course load policies, and similar information. Course offerings appear in a separate section of this bulletin.
Students
Highly motivated people from all walks of life make up UCD’s student body. The diversity of backgrounds, interests, occupations, and ages stimulates a unique learning experience for the men and women enrolled at UCD. Students range in age from 16 to 70. Approximately two-thirds of the students hold full-time jobs and 65 percent are enrolled at the upper division or graduate levels. In order to give students maximum flexibility in planning both educational and employment goals, more than half of the courses are offered during the evening hours. Students may begin studies in most areas at the beginning of the fall or spring semester, or the summer term.
University of Colorado System
UCD, as one of four campuses of the University of Colorado, has a special role and mission in Colorado higher education. The University was founded in Boulder in 1876, and the University of Colorado at Boulder now serves over 20,000 students enrolled in undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs. The Health Sciences Center in Denver provides education and training to medical, dental, nursing, and allied health personnel. The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs serves over
5,000 students in the Pikes Peak region, offering undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs. UCD’s special role within the University system is to provide urban-oriented educational programs for students in the Denver metropolitan area. Emphasis is on professional and pre-professional training.
UCD students have access to the library resources of all campuses and cultural events sponsored within the University system.
The official transcript of any student who first enrolled in the spring semester 1978 or afterwards and who graduates from an undergraduate program operated solely


2 / University of Colorado at Denver
by UCD will indicate that the degree was conferred at Denver. At present the only undergraduate program operated solely by UCD is the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Faculty and Accreditation
More than 280 highly qualified faculty members teach full time at UCD; 81 percent have doctoral degrees. The faculty is alert to the challenges of the urban environment and responsive to the needs of the commuter student. UCD is accredited by or holds membership in the following organizations:
ACCREDITATION
North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools
American Society of Landscape Architects Initial Two-Year Accreditation

Auraria Higher Education Center
The Auraria Higher Education Center is the site for the University of Colorado at Denver, Metropolitan State College, and the Auraria campus of the Community College of Denver. The three institutions share library, classroom, and related facilities on the Auraria campus, a 168-acre site in downtown Denver. Certain courses and programs are cooperatively offered.
On the Auraria campus are administrative and classroom buildings, the Auraria Library, the student center, book center, child care and development centers, physical education facilities, science building, and service buildings.
The new buildings share the campus with reminders of Denver’s past—historic Ninth Street Park, restored church buildings, and the Tivoli brewery built in 1882.
Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action
The University of Colorado at Denver adheres to a policy of equal opportunity in education and in employment.
In pursuance of this policy, no UCD department, unit, discipline, or employee shall discriminate against an in-
dividual or group on the basis of race, sex, creed, color, age, national origin, or individual handicap. This policy applies to all areas of the University affecting present and prospective students or employees.
The institution’s educational programs, activities, and services, offered to students and/or employees are administered on a nondiscriminatory basis subject to the provisions of Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
A UCD Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Program has been established to implement this policy. For information about these provisions on equity, discrimination, or fairness, consult the Affirmative Action Director at UCD.
Research and Public Service
All academic programs, public service, and research activities at UCD are geared to the needs of the urban population and environment, and to concerns and issues of importance to Colorado and the region. Activities in research and public service encompass both traditional and nontraditional fields of study, but predominately focus on issues that are related to Colorado needs.
During 1980-81, UCD faculty received 68 awards totaling more than $4 million for research and public service programs. During 1981-82, the total surpassed $6 million. These dollars, from public and private sources, support research and public service work which is of direct benefit to the State of Colorado and have brought UCD into close working relationships with representatives of city, county, and state government units, as well as interested individual citizens.
Current research activity covers such diverse areas as geotechnical engineering, environmental sciences, bilingual teacher training, mathematics teacher training, community development and design, cooperative education programs, and minority education projects.
In engineering, UCD faculty are looking at soil behavior as it relates to earthquakes, winds, and oceanic activity. They also are contributing to design and safety plans in mine structures for oil shale processing and to construction techniques which would lengthen the life and serviceability of highways.
The Center for Environmental Sciences has grown rapidly since 1970 to include a cluster of environmental projects related to trace elements in oil shale, pollution of ground-water by uranium tailings, and ideas for renovating waste-water. The work in this area has a direct impact on Colorado development issues and is conducted in close communication with both industry and various public interest groups in order to consider environmental issues in a complete context.
The National Hispanic Field Service Program is a multi-institutional program led by UCD on behalf of 10 other universities. UCD and the other institutions strive to recruit Hispanic students into graduate public affairs programs and guide them into public management careers that will prepare them for leadership roles in communities with significant Hispanic populations.
One of UCD’s largest public service projects is the


General Information / 3
Center for Community Development and Design. The center provides design and planning assistance to local governments throughout Colorado and in Denver. Projects have included neighborhood renovation, main street redevelopment, economic development strategies, recreational plans, and growth impact studies. The communities and neighborhoods, students, and faculty work together to help community leaders plan for solutions and ways to fund needed projects. As a result, the community receives the guidance it needs, and UCD’s academic programs are enhanced by involvement in practical projects.

4 / University of Colorado at Denver
The College of Musk requires an audition of all entering freshmen and undergraduate transfer students. In lieu of the personal audition, applicants may substitute tape recordings (about 10 minutes in length) with a statement of excellence by a qualified teacher. Interested students should write to the College of Music, UCD, for audition information and applications.
2. All Applicants. All applicants who meet the above requirements are classified in two ways for admission purposes:
a. Preferred consideration is given to applicants who rank in the upper half of their high school graduating class and have a composite score of 23 or higher on the American College Test (ACT) or a combined score of 1000 or higher on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). However, engineering applicants are expected to have a strong mathematics and science background, somewhat higher scores on the mathematics portion of the ACT or SAT, and higher class rank. Business students are expected to have a strong mathematics background, higher class rank and higher test scores. Music applicants must also successfully pass a music audition.
b. Applicants who rank in the lower half of their high school graduating class, and/or have combined SAT scores below 1000 or a composite ACT score below 23, and/or do not have 15 units of acceptable high school credit are considered on an individual basis.
How to Apply
1. Students should obtain an Application for Undergraduate Admission from their Colorado high school counselor or the UCD Office of Admissions and Records.
2. The application must be completed in full and sent to the Office of Admissions and Records. A $20 (subject to change) nonrefundable application fee must accompany the application. An applicant who is granted admission, but who is unable to enroll for the term applied for, will have the $20 fee valid for 12 months, provided the applicant informs Admissions and Records that he or she intends to enroll for a later term.
3. Students are required to have their high school send an official1 transcript of their high school grades, including class rank, to the Office of Admissions and Records.
4. Students also are required to take either the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and request that test scores be sent to UCD (ACT code 0533 or SAT code R-4875). High school students may obtain information from their counselors regarding when and where tests are given. Applicants who took one of these tests earlier and did not designate UCD to receive scores must request the testing agency to send scores to UCD. This is done by completing a Request for Additional Score Report available at test centers or from the offices listed below.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS FOR TRANSFER STUDENTS
Transfer students may apply for admission to the Colleges of Business and Administration, Engineering and Applied Science, Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Music. Students interested in the field of education should contact the School of Education office for information (629-2717).
Transfer students are given priority consideration for admission as follows:
1. College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and College of Music. Both Colorado residents and nonresidents2 must have at least a 2.0 cumulative college grade-point average (on a 4.0 scale) for all work attempted and must be eligible to return to all institutions previously attended. Course work in progress cannot be used in calculating the cumulative average. Music applicants must also successfully pass a music audition. Contact the College of Music for audition information.
2. College of Business and Administration and College of Engineering and Applied Science. Applicants to the College of Business must have at least a 2.5 cumulative grade-point average (on a 4.0 scale) for all work attempted and must be eligible to return to all institutions previously attended. Students must have earned a C (2.0) or better in all business courses completed. Applicants to the College of Engineering must have at least a 2.6 cumulative grade-point average (on a 4.0 scale) for all work attempted and must be eligible to return to all institutions previously attended. Course work in progress cannot be used in calculating the cumulative average.
In addition to the above academic requirements, preferred consideration is given to transfer applicants who have completed more than 12 (45 for business and 24 for engineering) semester credit hours (18 quarter hours) at an institution of university rank or to transfer applicants who have completed at least 45 semester credit hours (68 quarter hours) at a two-year college or a four-year state college.
Important Note: Applicants who do not meet the above grade-point average or credit hour requirements will still be considered for admission, but on an individual basis.
'Official transcripts are those sent by the issuing institution directly to the Office of Admissions at UCD. Hand-carried copies are not official.
^See Residency Classification for Tuition Purposes for a definition of resident and nonresident.


General Information / 5
The primary factors used when considering students individually are (1) the academic program to which admission is desired; (2) the quality of prior academic work; (3) age, maturity, and noncollegiate achievements; and (4) time elapsed since last attendance at previous colleges.
How to Apply
1. The student should obtain a transfer application from the UCD Office of Admissions and Records.
2. The application form must be completed and returned to the Office of Admissions and Records with the required $20' nonrefundable application fee.
3. The student is required to have two official2 transcripts sent to the Office of Admissions and Records from each collegiate institution attended. If a student is currently enrolled, a transcript listing all courses except those taken in the final term should be sent. Another transcript must be submitted after completion of the final term. (Transcripts from foreign institutions must be presented in the original language and accompanied by a certified literal English translation.)
Liberals arts and music applicants with less than 12 semester hours (18 quarter hours) of college work completed must also submit a high school transcript and ACT or SAT test scores. Business applicants with less than 45 semester hours and engineering applicants with less than 24 semester hours must also submit high school transcripts and ACT/SAT scores.
Applicants to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences should be aware that they may be able to receive credit for foreign language taken during the high school years provided they furnish an official2 high school transcript to the dean's office. Further information may be obtained from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
All credentials presented for admission become the property of the University of Colorado and must remain on file.
Transfer of College-Level Credit
The Office of Admissions and Records and the appropriate academic unit will determine which courses taken at another institution can be applied to a degree program at UCD after all official transcripts have been received and the applicant has been admitted as a degree student. In general, transfer credit will be accepted insofar as it meets the degree, grade, and residence requirements at UCD.
College-level credit may be transferred to the University if it was earned at a college or university of recognized standing, by advanced placement examintions, or in military service or schooling as recommended by the Commission on Accreditation of Service Experiences of the American Council on Education; if a grade of C or higher was attained; and if the credit is for courses appropriate to the degree sought at this institution.
The University may accept up to 72 semester credits (108 quarter hours) of work from a two-year institution toward the baccalaureate degree requirements and may accept up to 112 semester credits (153 quarter hours) from a four-year college or university. No credit is allowed for vocational/technical, remedial, or religious/doctrinal
work. A maximum of 60 semester credits of extension and correspondence work (not to include more than 30 semester credits of correspondence) may be allowed if the above conditions are met.
The College of Business and Administration generally limits transfer credit for business courses taken at the lower division level. All courses in the area of emphasis must be taken at the University of Colorado unless written approval is obtained from the division head. A maximum of 60 semester hours (90 quarter hours) of work from a two-year institution and 9 semester hours of business courses taken through correspondence study may be applied toward baccalaureate degree requirements. All correspondence courses are evaluated to determine their acceptability, and required business courses and those in the area of emphasis may not be taken through correspondence.
The College of Music requires that 56 of the hours needed for graduation be completed in residence. This total may be reduced by the faculty because of excellent work done at UCD and because of high scholarship exhibited at previous institutions attended. In no case shall the minimum be fewer than 40 hours distributed over three semesters.
Readmission Requirements for Former CU Students
UCD students who have not registered and attended class at UCD or any other college or university for one year or longer are former students and must formally apply for readmission. Former student application forms are available at the Office of Admissions and Records.

GRADUATE PROGRAMS
As a principal part of its mission, UCD offers graduate-and professional-level programs for the convenience of metro Denver residents. During the 1981-82 academic
year, approximately 39 percent of the student body was enrolled at the graduate level.
Graduate degree programs are offered through the Graduate School by its member schools and colleges, and outside the Graduate School by the Graduate School of Business Administration, the College of Design and Planning and the Graduate School of Public Affairs. The particular admission and graduation requirements established by each of these academic units are detailed in the following sections of this bulletin.
Students holding baccalaureate degrees but who are not accepted to specific degree programs may enroll for graduate course work as special students. Several types of students make use of the special student category. Among these are students who have attained whatever degree or credential status they feel is desirable, but who wish to take additional course work for professional or personal improvement; students who, for whatever reason (weak undergraduate background, change of discipline, or length of time since previous formal course work), feel the need to make up deficiencies before entering a degree program; and students who have not decided about entering a specific degree program. Such students should be aware that, generally, only limited course credits taken as a special student may be applied toward a degree program. Also, a 2.0 minimum grade-point average must be maintained to permit continuing registration as a special student. Students interested in applying as special students should contact the Office of Admissions for applications. A $5 nonrefundable application fee is required for new special students.
GRADUATE ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS AND APPLICATION DEADLINES
Admission requirements and application deadlines vary according to the individual graduate program. The Graduate School has general admission requirements which are supplemented by specific requirements of the major departments of graduate study (e.g., electrical engineering, education, English, etc.). Applicants in the fields of education, engineering, and the arts, sciences, and humanities should consult the general information section of the Graduate School portion of this bulletin as well as the following sections dealing with requirements and deadlines for specific programs. Applicants in the fields of business administration, public affairs, and design and planning should refer to the sections of this bulletin on the Graduate School of Business Administration, the Graduate School of Public Affairs, and the College of Design and Planning.
Admission of Nondegree Special Students
All correspondence and questions regarding admission as a special student should be directed to the UCD Office of Admissions and Records.
Persons desiring admission as special students for the purpose of teacher certification should contact the School of Education, 629-2717.
High School Concurrent Enrollment
High school juniors and seniors with proven academic abilities may be admitted to UCD with special approval for one term only. Credit for courses taken may subsequently


General Information / 7
be applied toward a University degree program. For more information and application instructions, contact the UCD Office of Admissions and Records (303-629-2660).
REQUIREMENTS FOR SPECIAL STUDENT ADMISSION
Persons who want to take University courses but do not plan to work toward a University of Colorado degree may be admitted as special students. Courses taken as a special student are fully credited and can be used for transfer to other institutions or for professional improvement. Persons who do not have an undergraduate degree are encouraged to apply to an undergraduate degree program rather than apply as special students. UCD will enroll persons without an undergraduate degree as special students for 12 semester hours, after which the student must apply to a regular degree program. Persons with a baccalaureate degree who seek teacher certification or renewal of certification may be admitted as special students if they meet the requirements of the School of Education. Special students must maintain a grade-point average of
2.0 at UCD.
HOW TO APPLY FOR SPECIAL STUDENT ADMISSION
To apply for admission as a special student, obtain a Special Student Application Form from the Office of Admissions and Records. Return the completed application by the deadline for the term desired. A $5 nonrefundable application fee is required. No additional credentials are required. Applicants who seek teacher certification or renewal of teacher certification must apply separately to the School of Education and submit the required credentials.
Special students are advised that registration for courses is on a space available basis.
CHANGING STATUS FROM SPECIAL TO DEGREE STUDENT
Special students may apply for admission to an undergraduate degree program by completing the Special to Degree Application available from the Office of Admissions and Records. Academic credentials (i.e., transcripts and/ or test scores) and a $20 nonrefundable application fee also must be submitted. Special students who are accepted as undergraduate degree students may generally transfer a limited number of semester credits for courses taken as a special student to an undergraduate degree program, with approval of the dean. Special students should consult with the college to which they are applying during the first semester of their enrollment for the maximum number of semester credit hours acceptable toward a degree program as a special student. (Students enrolled as special students prior to the fall semester of 1970 are subject to the policies in effect between January of 1969 and August of 1970.)
Special students may apply for admission to a graduate degree program by completing the application required by the particular program. The graduate dean, upon recommendation by the department, may accept up to 8 semester hours of credit toward the requirements for a master’s degree for courses taken as a special student at
the University or at another recognized graduate school, or some combination thereof. The department may recommend acceptance of additional credit for courses taken as a special student during the semester the student has applied for admission to the desired degree program.
Official Notification of Admission
Official notification of admission to UCD as an undergraduate, graduate, or special student is provided by the Office of Admissions and Records on a Statement of Admission Eligibility Form. Letters from the various schools and colleges indicating acceptance into a particular program are subject to official admission to the institution. Applicants who do not receive official notification of admission within a reasonable period of time after submitting application materials should contact the Office of Admissions and Records (303) 629-2660.
Tentative Admission. Students who are admitted pending receipt of additional documents will be permitted one term to submit the documents. Registration for subsequent terms will be denied when documents have not been
received.
II. TUITION AND FEES Tuition and Fees

PAYMENT OF TUITION AND FEES
All tuition and fees (except application fee) are assessed and payable when the student registers for the term, according to guidelines in the current Schedule of Courses. Arrangements may be made through the Finance Office at the time of registration to defer payment of part of the charges. Specific information on deferred payment is included in the Schedule of Courses published before each semester or summer term.
Students who register for courses are liable for payment of tuition and fees even though they may drop out of school. Refund policies for students who withdraw from the University are included in the Schedule of Courses. A student with financial obligations to the University will not be permitted to register for any subsequent term, to be graduated, or to be listed among those receiving a degree or special certificate. The only exception to this regulation involves students with loans and other types of indebtedness which are payable after graduation.
Personal checks are accepted for any University obligation. Any student who pays with a check which is not acceptable to the bank may be disenrolled and the original financial obligation still will exist. A service charge of $15 will be added for returned checks.
AUDIT
To qualify as an auditor for fall or spring semester, a student must be 21 years of age or older. Students may not be registered for any other University of Colorado courses during the time they are auditing and are not eligible to audit courses if they are under suspension from the University. The Records Office does not keep any record of courses audited; therefore, credit for these courses cannot be established. Auditors may attend as many courses as they wish (except those courses with laboratories or where equipment is used), provided they have received permission from each instructor. Auditor’s cards are issued after classes begin. This card should be presented to the instructor when requesting permission to attend a class.
There is no auditor status in summer. Auditors, whether resident or nonresident, pay resident tuition for 3 credit


General Information / 9
hours per fall or spring semester for class instruction and library privileges only.
Residency Classification for Tuition Purposes
General Policies. A student is initially classified as a resident or nonresident student for tuition purposes at the time of application to the University. The classification is based on information furnished by the student and other relevant sources. To be eligible for in-state tuition (resident) status the following requirements (as defined in the Colorado Revised Statutes, Chapter 124, Article 18) must be met by students who are 22 years of age or older (or emancipated minors as defined by law): (1) the student must have been domiciled in Colorado for 12 consecutive months preceding the first day of classes for the term in which in-state status is desired; (2) the student must demonstrate significant intent to make Colorado a fixed and permanent residence. Intent is demonstrated by compliance with other mandatory laws of the state for 12 consecutive months (i.e., valid driver’s license, valid motor vehicle registration, payment of state income tax, voter registration, etc.). An unemancipated minor assumes the domicile of his or her parents.
Once the student’s status is established, it remains unchanged unless satisfactory information to the contrary is presented. A student who, due to subsequent events, becomes eligible for a change in classification from resident to nonresident or vice versa must inform the Office of Admissions and Records within 15 days after such a change occurs. An adult student or emancipated minor who moves outside of Colorado must send written notification to the Office of Admissions and Records within 15 days of the change.
Petitioning for a Change in Residency Classification. Any student who is 22 years of age or older, or an emancipated minor as defined by law, may change his or her residence and tuition classification status. Detailed information on the procedures which must be followed, including necessary petition forms, is available from the Office of Admissions and Records. Petitions will not be considered until an application for admission and supporting credentials have been received by the University. Changes in classification are effective at the time of the student’s next registration. A student who willfully gives wrong information in order to avoid paying out-of-state tuition is subject to legal and disciplinary action.
III. FINANCIAL AID AT THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO AT DENVER
The financial aid program at the University is designed to assist those students who would be unable to attend the University without assistance. While the primary responsibility for meeting the costs of education rests with individual students and their families, financial aid funds are offered to supplement whatever funds students and their families can provide. Since requests generally exceed the availability of funds, students and their families should be aware of procedures and deadlines in order to receive maximum consideration. Questions and requests for forms
should be directed to the Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment at UCD, Central Classroom Building, Room 105, 629-2886.
Estimated Expenses
Educational expenses at UCD include tuition, fees, and the cost of books and related instructional materials. Students who do not live with their parents must also include the cost of housing and food expenses. All students should consider transportation and personal expenditures (i.e., clothing, entertainment, etc.) in determining their expenses. The Office of Financial Aid establishes standard budgets for different types of students (dependent students living at home with parents, single students living away from home, married students, etc.) to bring about consistency and equity in determining the financial needs of all students. The standard budgets are established in line with parameters set by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education and the Department of Education.
For the 1983-84 academic year the standard budgets allow $215 per month living allowance for dependent students living at home, $495 per month for single students not living at home, and $738 per month for married students. An allowance of $130 per month was added per dependent child in the student’s home. The living allowance included amounts for rent, food, utilities, personal expenses, and transportation. The cost of tuition, fees, and medical expenses for the 1982-83 academic year was $917 for a resident student and $3,537 for a nonresident student. Graduate students were assessed $741 as residents and $3,706 as nonresidents. Books and supplies will be estimated at $290 for the 1983-84 academic year.
All expenses will increase slightly for the 1983-84 academic year. The State of Colorado and the Board of Regents usually set tuition guidelines and rates during the month of May for the summer and academic year. The standards for living allowances are usually set during the spring semester for the following summer and academic year.
Students who have additional costs above the standard allowances can request a review of their situation by the Financial Aid Committee. The committee must receive documentation of extra expenses and can consider an individual exception to the standard allowances. Examples of these kinds of exceptions are babysitting expenses, medical costs, dental and optical expenses.
Determination of Financial Need and Award
Financial need is defined as the difference between the cost of attendance as defined by the institution (tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, transportation and essential incidental expenses) and total resources available to the student. These resources include a family contribution (summer savings, term earnings, a spouse contribution, and a parental contribution) and awards from agencies outside the University.
Financial need is determined by a national uniform needs analysis system administered by agencies such as the American College Testing Program. This system analyzes income and assets, family size, number of children


10 / University of Colorado at Denver
in post-secondary education, student independence, etc., to determine a reasonable student and/or family contribution.
After the financial need is determined, students are ranked in order of financial need and are aided accordingly until all funds are committed. The financial aid package normally consists of a self-help component (loans and/or employment) and a gift aid component (grants) proportionate to the available funds and to the number of needy students applying. A small portion of Colorado work-study funds is available to interested students who do not document financial need.
How to Apply
Application forms may be obtained by contacting the Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment. Students are asked to complete an institutional application and a needs analysis form. The application includes a checklist of required documents to be submitted.
Parents are expected to contribute toward a student’s educational costs. However, in certain cases students may be considered financially independent of their parents. To be eligible for financial aid as a self-supporting student, a student (1) cannot be claimed as a tax exemption, (2) cannot receive $750 or more, or (3) cannot live at home for more than six weeks for the year aid is received and for the entire preceding calendar year. For example, for a student to receive aid as a self-supporting student during the 1983-84 academic year, the above three criteria must be met for 1982 and 1983.
Note: Requirements for receiving aid as a self-supporting student are subject to change by the federal and state governments.
Self-supporting students must document their status by providing income tax forms or other supporting documents to show sufficient income to be self-supporting during the appropriate period of time. In some cases, additional documentation from parents is required to complete a student’s application. The information provided on the application for financial aid is analyzed according to the uniform needs analysis formula to determine the student’s ability to contribute to his or her educational costs during the academic year.
To be eligible for financial aid, students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents or have a refugee visa. Eligible foreign students are advised to include a photocopy of their visa cards with their applications to facilitate processing. In addition, students who are required to register for the draft through Selective Service must be registered in order to be eligible for federal financial aid for the 1983-84 academic year.

Graduate Grant. Grants for graduate students are available on a limited basis and will be awarded to students as eligibility and funds allow. Application is made by submitting the University application and the Family Financial Statement.
LOANS
Colorado Guaranteed Student Loan Program. The primary purpose of this program is to make low-interest, longterm loans available to students to help them meet their postsecondary educational expenses. The student must first obtain an application from a participating lending insd-tution or the Colorado Guaranteed Student Loan Program office. Arrangements for repayment must be made within
four months after graduation or other termination of at least half-time studies. The student must contact the lender to arrange a repayment schedule. The interest rate under this plan is limited to 9 percent per annum simple interest for first-time borrowers (for most previous borrowers, the interest rate will be 7 percent). In return for its guarantee of a student’s loan, CGSLP requires the student to pay in advance a guarantee fee equal to one percent per annum on the outstanding principal balance to cover the anticipated in-school period plus a nine-month grace period and a 5 percent (of the original principal amount) origination fee.
If a student’s family taxable income for the prior year was $30,000 or less, there is no financial need test and the student is eligible to borrow the loan. If the student’s family income was over $30,000, a financial need test must be done by the Office of Financial Aid. If the student shows financial need, then the student is eligible to borrow the loan. All students should complete the Guaranteed Student Loan need analysis form and submit it along with the regular Guaranteed Student Loan application, the University application, and copies of family tax returns to the Office of Financial Aid.
The maximum an undergraduate student may borrow is $2,500 a year. A graduate or professional student may borrow up to $5,000 a year. The total which may be borrowed for undergraduate study is $12,500. The total for all undergraduate and graduate study is $25,000. The government pays the interest on loans until the repayment period begins, six months after the student ceases to be at least a half-time student. Repayment is usually at the rate of $50 per month and cannot exceed ten years.
National Direct Student Loan. The National Direct Student Loan is a federal loan available to undergraduate and graduate students with financial need. A student may borrow up to (a) $3,000 during the freshman and sophomore years; (b) $6,000 total for undergraduate study; (c) $12,000 total for graduate and undergraduate study. Application for the loan is made by submitting the University Application for Financial Aid and the Family Financial Statement (FFS). Interest and payment on the loan are deferred while the borrower is enrolled on at least a half-time basis at an approved institution of higher education. Interest at 5 percent per year begins to accrue 6 months after the borrower ceases to be at least a halftime student. Repayment is due at that time at the rate of $50 per month plus interest, and cannot exceed 10 years.
Parents Loans to Undergraduate Students/Auxiliary Loans to Assist Students. This type of loan allows parents to borrow funds for their dependent children, graduate students to borrow for their own educational costs, and undergraduate self-supporting students to borrow for their own costs. Repayment begins 60 days after disbursement at 14% interest. Parents of dependent undergraduate students may borrow up to $3,000 per year. Graduate students may borrow up to $3,000 per year. Independent undergraduates may borrow up to $2,500 per year. However, the PLUS loan, combined with any GSL, cannot exceed the yearly and total GSL undergraduate limits. PLUS loan borrowers must pay an insurance premium of up to 1% of the total loan, collected in advance.

EMPLOYMENT
College Work-Study Program. The College Work-Study Program is designed to provide jobs to undergraduate and graduate students. The program is funded by the federal government and the State of Colorado. Employment is arranged whenever possible in the student’s major area of interest, with job opportunities both on- and off-campus. Awards average up to $2,500 per academic year. For details contact the Office of Student Employment. Application for this aid is made by submitting the University Application for Financial Aid and the Family Financial Statement. Students in the Work-Study Program are expected to assume responsibilities considered normal in an employee-employer relationship.
Part-time Student Employment. The Auraria Student Assistance Center and the UCD Office of Student Employment assist students in obtaining part-time employment other than that based on financial need. Further information and application may be obtained from the center.
OTHER SOURCES OF AID
See the Office of Financial Aid for details of these programs:
Bureau of Indian Affairs. Grants are available to Native American students.
Short-Term Loans. Small, temporary loans are made to students facing financial emergencies. These loans are to be repaid during the semester.
Academic Requirements
Students receiving financial aid must demonstrate that they are maintaining normal progress and are in good standing at the University. Normal academic progress is defined as completing the minimum number of hours stipulated on the notification of financial aid by obtaining a grade of D or better for undergraduates. Graduates must obtain a grade of C or better. Usually students are required to complete 12 credits per semester for undergraduates and 8 credits per semester as graduates. Summer term requirements are 6 credits for undergraduates and 4 credits for graduates. Colorado Scholars, Pell Grant, and Guaranteed Student Loans may be received by students who are enrolled for at least half of these credit minimums. Less than normal progress for two terms results in the loss of future financial aid. Students are expected to maintain grade-point averages as required by the University.
Duration of Aid
Financial aid is offered for one year at a time. Students must reapply for summer and for each academic year, according to the established priority deadlines.
Use of Funds
All financial aid awards are to be used only for immediate educational expenses. These expenses include tuition, fees, books, supplies, room and board, transportation, and essential miscellaneous expenses, such as clothing, medical, etc.
Refunds
The University tuition refund policy is published in the Schedule of Courses for each term. For the fall 1982
semester, the policy for refunds upon complete withdrawal from the University was 100% minus $25 refund if the student withdrew before the term began, 75% of the total bill if the student withdrew by the second day of the third week of classes, and 50% of the total bill if the student withdrew by the fourth week of classes. Students receiving financial aid may be required to return any refund to the University’s financial aid accounts.
Student Rights and Responsibilities
Students have certain rights and responsibilities regarding financial aid and student employment. Students may review applicable policies and procedures published in a financial aid brochure available in the UCD Office of Financial Aid.

V. ACADEMIC POLICIES AND REGULATIONS
Advanced Standing and Advanced Placement Credit
Undergraduate students may obtain credit for lower-division courses in which they demonstrate proficiency by examination. By passing an examination, the student will be given credit for the course to satisfy lower division requirements and may be eligible to enroll in higher level courses than indicated by the student’s formal academic experience. Credit granted for courses by examination is treated as transfer credit without a grade but does count toward graduation and other requirements for which it is appropriate. There are three types of examinations as described below.
ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAM
The Advanced Placement Program of the College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) allows students to take advanced work while in high school and then be examined for credit at the college level. Students who take advanced placement courses and subsequently receive scores of 3, 4, or 51 on the CEEB Advanced Placement Examination are generally given college credit for lower-level courses in which they have demonstrated proficiency and are
granted advanced standing in those areas. Students with scores below 31 may be considered for advanced placement by the discipline concerned. For more information contact your high school counselor or the Director of Admissions for UCD.
CREDIT BY EXAMINATION
Degree students may take examinations for credit. To qualify for an examination, the student must be formally working toward a degree at UCD, have a grade-point average of at least 2.0, and be currently registered. Examinations are arranged through the Office of Admissions and Records, and a nonrefundable fee is charged. Students should contact the office of the dean of the academic unit in which they are enrolled.
COLLEGE-LEVEL EXAMINATION PROGRAM
An exciting challenge is available to incoming UCD students who may earn University credit by examination in subject areas in which they have excelled at college-level proficiency. Interested students are encouraged to take appropriate subject examinations provided in the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) of the College Entrance Examination Board testing service. The cost for a single examination is $28. For more information call 629-2861.
Students who are interested in CLEP examinations must contact the office of their school or college.
Credit for Military Service and Schooling and ROTC
MILITARY SERVICE AND SCHOOLING
Applicants with military experience should submit the following with their application in order to have credit for educational experiences evaluated: (1) a copy of DD Form 214 and (2) DD Form 295, Application for the Evaluation of Education Experience During Military Service. USAF personnel may present an official transcript from the Community College of the Air Force in lieu of the DD Form 295. Credit will be awarded as recommended by the Commission on the Accreditation of Service Experiences of the American Council on Education to the extent that such credit is applicable to the degree sought at UCD. Credit for courses completed through the U.S. Armed Forces Institute will be evaluated on the same basis as transfer credit from collegiate institutions.
RESERVE OFFICERS' TRAINING CORPS (ROTC)
Students enrolled in Army or Air Force ROTC programs should consult with their college or school regarding the application of ROTC course credit toward graduation requirements. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences allows a maximum of 12 semester hours of ROTC credit to be applied toward baccalaureate degree requirements. The College of Business and Administration stipulates that ROTC courses may be used for credit only for nonbusiness elective requirements and that no credit may be given for
‘Students in the College of Engineering and Applied Science must receive scores of 4
or 5 for credit to be granted; students with scores of 3 may be considered by the
department concerned. All credit must be validated by subsequent academic performance.

Transcripts
Transcripts of academic record at the University of Colorado (all campuses) may be ordered in person or by mail from the UCB Records Office, Campus Box B-7, Transcript Section, Regent Administrative Center 125, Boulder, CO 80309. Official transcripts will not be available until approximately five weeks after final ex-
aminations. A transcript that is to have the degree recorded will not be available until approximately eight weeks after final examinations. Requests should include the following:
1. Student’s full name (include maiden or other name if applicable).
2. Student number.

There is no charge for transcripts. Transcripts are prepared only at the student’s request. A student having financial obligations to the University that are due and unpaid will not be granted a transcript. Copies of transcripts from other institutions cannot be furnished.
PASS/FAIL PROCEDURE
1. Any student who wishes to register for a course on a pass/fail basis should do so during regular registration procedures. (Up to 16 semester hours of regular course work may be taken on a pass/fail basis and credited toward the bachelor’s degree.) Changes to or from a pass/ fail basis may be effected only during the regular drop/ add period.
2. The record of pass/fail registration is maintained by the Office of Admissions and Records.
3. Academic deans and faculty will not be informed of special pass/fail registration. All students who register on a pass/fail basis appear on the regular class roster, and a normal letter grade is assigned by the professor. When grades are received in the Records Office, those registrations which require a pass/fail designation are automatically converted by the grade application system. Grades of D and above convert to grades of P.
4. Only 6 hours of course work may be P/F in any given semester.
5. Exception to the pass/fail regulations is permitted for certain specified courses offered by the School of Education, the Division of Continuing Education, and Study Abroad Programs.
6. Graduate degree students can exercise the P/F option for undergraduate courses only. However, a grade of P will not be acceptable for graduate credit to satisfy any Graduate School requirement.
Adding and Dropping Courses1
Adding Courses. Students may add courses to their original registration during the first 5 days of classes, provided there is space available. Approval signatures are not required.

2. After the 12th day of a fall or spring semester (7th day of a summer term), the instructor’s signature is required on the drop card, and the instructor must indicate whether the student is passing or failing. If the student is passing, the course will appear on the student’s permanent record with a grade of W. If the student is failing, the course will appear on the permanent record with an F grade. No refund of tuition is made for courses which are dropped after the 12th day (7th day of the summer term) of classes. Charges will be assessed for the addition of courses.
3. After the 10 th week of a fall or spring semester (5 th week of a summer term), courses may not be dropped unless there are circumstances clearly beyond the student’s control. In addition to the instructor’s certification (as in 2 above), the student must petition the academic dean for approval to drop the courses. Tuition will be charged even though the drop is allowed.
4. Dropping all courses requires an official University withdrawal form.
Withdrawal From the University
To withdraw from the University, the student obtains approval of the dean’s office, Finance Office, and the Office of Admissions and Records. The withdrawal date is recorded on the student’s permanent record page. If the withdrawal date is prior to the 13th day of the semester (7th day of the summer term), the courses will not appear on the student’s permanent record. If the withdrawal date is after the 12 th day, the courses will appear with W grades. Students may not withdraw after the 10th week of the semester (7th week of the summer
term) except under documented circumstances clearly beyond their control.
Students who are receiving veterans’ benefits or financial aid also must obtain the required signature of those respective office(s).
A student who ceases to attend classes without officially withdrawing from the University will receive a grade of F for all course work enrolled for during that term.
A graduate student who desires to withdraw from the University must apply to the associate dean of the Graduate School for permission to withdraw in good standing. Students who withdraw without communicating with the associate dean and filing the appropriate Withdrawal Form, will be marked as having failed their courses for the term.
For specific signatures and refunds the student must refer to the Schedule of Courses published prior to the beginning of each term.
Originality of Work
In all academic areas it is imperative that either work be original or explicit acknowledgment be given for the use of other persons’ ideas or language. Students should consult with instructors to learn the specific procedures appropriate in each given field. Breaches of academic honesty can result in disciplinary measures ranging from lowering of a grade to permanent compulsory withdrawal from the University.
Inspection of Educational Records
Periodically, but not less than annually, the University of Colorado informs students of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. This act, with which the institution intends to comply fully, was designated to protect the privacy of educational records, to establish the right of students to inspect and review their educational records, and to provide guidelines for the correction of inaccurate or misleading data through informal and formal


16 / University of Colorado at Denver
hearings. Students also have the right to file complaints with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act Office (FERPA) concerning alleged failures by the institution to comply with the act.
Local policy explains in detail the procedures to be used by the institution for compliance with the provisions of the act. Copies of the policy can be found in the library on each of the several campuses of the University of Colorado.
A directory of records which lists all educational records maintained on students by this institution may be found in the Office of Admissions and Records on each campus.
The following items of student information have been designated by the University of Colorado as public or directory information. Such information may be disclosed by the institution for any purpose, at its discretion. These items are: name, address, telephone number, dates of attendance, registration status, class, major field of study, awards, honors, degree(s) conferred, past and present participation in officially recognized sports and activities, physical factors (height, weight) of athletes, date and place of birth.
Currently enrolled students may withhold disclosure of any category of information under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. To withhold disclosure, written notification must be received in the Office of Admissions and Records on the appropriate campus prior to the 11th day of classes in each and every term. Forms requesting the withholding of directory information are available in the Office of Admissions and Records.
The University of Colorado assumes that failure on the part of any student to request specifically the withholding, term by term, of categories of directory information indicates individual approval for disclosure for the term(s).
Questions concerning the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act may be referred to the Office of Admissions and Records.
Good Standing
To remain in good standing within a particular department, a student must maintain a minimum grade-point average of 2.0 (C) in all course work attempted. A minimum grade-point average of 2.0 must also be maintained to qualify for an undergraduate degree. Policies on academic probation, suspension, and dismissal vary by college or school, and students should refer to the sections of this bulletin dealing with the colleges and schools for information.
Student Classification
Students who have passed fewer than 30 semester hours are classified as freshmen. To be classified as a sophomore, a student must have passed 30 semester hours; to be classified as a junior, 60 hours; and to be classified as a senior, 90 hours of credit. All transfer students will be classified on the same basis according to their hours of credit accepted by the University of Colorado.
Student Indebtedness
A student with financial obligations to the University will not be permitted to register for any subsequent term, to be graduated, or to be listed among those receiving
a degree or credit from the University. Transcripts will not be released to a student with a financial obligation to the University. The only exception to this policy involves students who have loans or other types of indebtedness which mature after graduation.

General Information / 19
Division of Continuing Education
Through its Division of Continuing Education (CE), the University of Colorado at Denver provides off-campus credit and noncredit educational opportunities for the lifelong learner and the non-traditional student. More than
9,000 employees of business, industry, and government, homemakers, senior citizens, and alumni participated in CE classes, workshops, and seminars during the past year.
To provide easy access to as many students as possible, CE uses the city and its environs as its classroom. UCD’s excellent faculty is teamed with highly talented part-time instructors from the Denver metropolitan area to ensure quality and excellence in instruction. Credit class offerings provide a linkage between UCD’s resident degree program on-campus and the part-time, off-campus student. Programs are specially designed to offer career updating for such professionals as teachers, engineers, geologists, and architects. Off-campus credit classes at Lowry Air Force Base and Fitzsimons Army Medical Center give the military student the opportunity to take core course requirements that will later lead to the completion of a degree. CE also assists UCD with the winter and summer session programs.
CE delivers a wide array of noncredit courses for those interested in career updating, personal enrichment, and intellectual stimulation. Specific programs are developed at the request of business and professional groups. These programs include licensing and refresher courses for engineers, accountants, life insurance agents, architects, and commercial property managers. Seminars and certificate programs for business and industry are designed to help keep supervisors and managers abreast of new technologies and their management. Courses in the arts and humanities explore such topics as parenting, self-awareness, music and art, photography, languages, and literature.
Through these off-campus programs, and as part of its public service mission, UCD seeks to extend its wealth of research, knowledge, and talent to the off-campus student. Individuals, groups, and organizations with special education interests are invited to call the Division of Continuing Education at 629-2735.
Development Program
In 1981-82 UCD established a development program in conjunction with the University of Colorado Foundation Inc. The CU Foundation was established in 1967 at the direction of the Board of Regents of the University as a privately governed, nonprofit corporation, chartered under the laws of the State of Colorado. It is operated exclusively for charitable, scientific, or educational purposes designed to promote the welfare of CU. The CU Foundation and its development offices are the approved agency to solicit, receive, and administer gifts from private sources for the benefit of all campuses.
The Development Program also is integrally related to the Alumni Association and offers leadership to that group.
Educational Opportunity Programs
The Educational Opportunity Programs assist all educationally disadvantaged students at UCD. Support programs include specialized recruiting, intensive counseling,
tutorial services, and community outreach programs. The program is designed to provide assistance to minority students and to acquaint students with the history and culture of Asian Americans, Blacks, Mexican Americans, and Native Americans. Student organizations provide assistance with recruitment, counseling, and tutoring; financial assistance is available through grants and the Work/Study program. Courses are offered in Asian American, Black, Mexican American, and Native American Studies. These courses are open to all students and are described in the Course Description section of this bulletin under Ethnic Studies.
Center for Environmental Sciences
The Center for Environmental Sciences, funded by federal agencies and private foundations, conducts basic and applied research focusing on understanding and providing solutions for environmental issues related to natural resource development.
The research programs involve faculty, students, and staff from many disciplines at UCD and other universities in the Rocky Mountain region. While the center does not have a formal education program, many students have obtained master’s and Ph.D. degrees while working on center programs.
The Oil Shale Task Force, located in the center, has a lead role in the U.S. Department of Energy’s oil shale research program. The center’s Analytical Chemistry Laboratory is considered to be one of the premier labs in the nation.
The administration offices of the center are located in St. Cajetan’s Center, Auraria campus, telephone 629-3460.

The Office of International Education on the Boulder campus expedites the exchange of students and faculty, entertains foreign visitors, promotes special relationships with foreign universities, and acts as adviser for Fulbright and other scholarships. The office also arranges study abroad programs and offers over 20 different programs around the globe.
Some of the study abroad programs are of the traditional junior year abroad variety, which places a student directly in a foreign university for an academic year. Such programs are available at the Universities of Lancaster and East Anglia, England; the University of Bordeaux, France; the University of Costa Rica, San Jose; the American University in Cairo, Egypt; the University of Regensburg, Germany; the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel; the University of Bologna, Italy; Konan University, Japan; the University of Seville, Spain; the National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan; Catholic University of Lima, Peru; and Leningrad State University, U.S.S.R. Engineering and commercial Spanish students may be particularly interested in programs at ITESM in Monterrey, Mexico.
For students unable to spend an academic year abroad, programs for a single semester are available with various emphases, particularly on intensive language learning. Students may study beginning-intermediate language in Chambery, France, during the spring semester. In fall, spring, or summer, students may attend a one-semester language program in Jalapa, Mexico. Students who wish


20 / University of Colorado at Denver
the experience of a foreign institution may attend a single semester program in San Jose, Costa Rica; Rennes, France; or Seville, Spain. Special summer programs, e.g., art history in Italy, are organized with specific departments upon request.
Students remain enrolled at the University of Colorado while taking regular courses in the foreign university. A B average with the equivalent of two years of college level work in the appropriate language is required. Financial aid from the University can be applied to program costs in most cases, and all credit earned while abroad is considered resident credit.
More information about study abroad programs is available in the Auraria International Services Office, 629-3474, or the Office of International Education, Boulder campus, 492-7741.
VIII. RESERVE OFFICER TRAINING PROGRAMS
Army

The Department of Military Science offers two Army ROTC programs leading to a commission in the active Army, the Army Reserve, or the Army National Guard Forces.
FOUR-YEAR PROGRAM
The standard four-year program consists of two phases. The basic course, normally completed during the freshman and sophomore years, consists of courses in military science, officer career development, and leadership theory and management. The advanced course coincides with the junior and senior years. Subject areas include psychology and methods of instruction, tactics and unit operations, military law, history, national strategy, and army policies. Completion of a six-week advanced camp during the summer is required prior to commissioning.
Students should contact the Professor of Military Science (629-3491, 1059 Ninth Street) for specific requirements and options available based on each student’s status at the time of program entry. Students who are veterans of military service or participated in Junior ROTC, Civil Air Patrol, or similar organizations may have a portion or all of the basic course requirements waived by the Professor of Military Science.
TWO-YEAR PROGRAM
The abbreviated two-year program consists of the same courses offered in the advanced course. However, both undergraduate and graduate students may become qualified for this program by successful completion of a six-week summer basic camp, an on-campus summer program (MIS 204), or by completion of specially designed compression courses offered during the spring or summer semesters. If selected for the abbreviated program under these options, students may receive an early commission with the Reserve
or National Guard while continuing their college education at the undergraduate or graduate level.
SCHOLARSHIPS
Students selected for a U.S. Army scholarship receive full tuition, books, laboratory fees, classroom materials, and a monthly allowance of $100 during each academic year. All advanced-course students (those enrolled in upper division courses) receive the $100 monthly stipend. High school seniors are eligible to apply for four-year scholarships. Both ROTC and non-ROTC students, enrolled on campus as full-time students, may compete for the three-, two-, and one-year scholarships. All scholarship benefits are tax free and competition is open to both men and women.
FLIGHT TRAINING
Students selected for the advanced course may become qualified, as cadets, to participate in the Army Aviation Program. These individuals will attend flight school after completion of their officer’s basic course while on active duty.
ARMY ROTC COURSE.CREDIT
Army ROTC course credit for graduation varies with each college. Students should contact the Professor of Military Science or dean of their college to clarify the number of credit hours to be awarded.

U.S. Air Force ROTC offers two programs leading to commission in the U.S. Air Force upon receipt of the baccalaureate degree. Graduate students may be commissioned upon completion of 12 hours of the professional officer course and a six-week summer training program.
STANDARD FOUR-YEAR PROGRAM
This program is in three parts: the general military course for lower division (freshman and sophomore) students, the professional officer course for upper division students, and leadership laboratory (attended by all students). Completion of the general military course is a prerequisite for entry into the professional officer course. Completion of a four-week summer training course is required prior to commissioning.
MODIFIED TWO-YEAR PROGRAM
This program is offered to full-time, regularly enrolled degree students at both undergraduate and graduate levels who will have two years remaining at the University of Colorado when they enroll. Selection is on a competitive basis. Applicants should apply directly to the Professor of Aerospace Studies not later than March 15 of the spring semester immediately preceding the academic year in which they desire to enroll in the program. Those selected for this program must complete a six-week field training program during the summer months as a prerequisite for entry into the profesional officer course the following fall or spring semester.


General Information / 21
FLIGHT TRAINING
Expense-paid ground school and flight training are open to cadets approved and qualified for future USAF pilot training.
AIR FORCE COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
Students participating in Air Force ROTC may be eligible to compete for Air Force ROTC College Scholarships. Students selected for this program are placed on grants that pay tuition, book costs, nonrefundable educational fees, and subsistence of $100 per month, tax free.

Donald L. Stevens, Resident Dean
INFORMATION ABOUT THE COLLEGE
The College of Business and Administration and the Graduate School of Business Administration at UCD offer programs designed to train competent, responsible professionals in management and administrative skills needed by today’s business and government leaders. The College serves students new to this field of study and men and women already in administrative positions. The fact that 80-85 percent of all courses are made available to the working professional in the evening demonstrates the College’s commitment to the professional advancement of its students. The College also promotes research and new thinking about modern administrative and management problems.
The major purpose of the College of Business is to provide opportunities both for a liberal education and for professional training. Students are given help in preparing not only for effective careers but also for a satisfying life and constructive citizenship.
The Graduate School of Business Administration offers graduate level education in business and health administration to persons with undergraduate degrees in business and other academic fields and prepares them for work in the broad spectrum of business enterprise. All Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) and Master of Science in Health Administration (M.S.H.A.) classes are offered in the evening.
The College was admitted to membership in the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business in 1938. The health administration program was accredited by the Accrediting Commission on Education for Health Services Administration in 1969. Furthermore, the Graduate Program in Health Administration in the College, which offers the Master of Science in Health Administration, is only one of several activities sponsored by the Programs in Health Services Administration. Others include a certificate and intensive graduate program in financial management (called the Executive Graduate Program in Health-Care Financial Management), and a Master of Science in Nursing Administration degree jointly sponsored with the University of Colorado School of Nursing. In addition, the graduate program is affiliated with the Center for Health Services Research at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center.
The College participates on a continuing basis in the
Executive Program for the Gas Industry, the Institute of Organization Management, the Colorado School of Banking, the National Installment Banking School, the School of Bank Marketing, the School for International Banking, and many activities of the Center for Management and Technical Programs. The College assists in the presentation throughout Colorado of a Certificate Program in Real Estate. The faculty also participate in many continuing education, government, and company educational programs.
The UCD Business Advisory Council and the Health Administration Program Community Advisory Board serve as a direct link with the Denver business community to promote understanding, cooperation, and mutual gain in a variety of education-industry activities.

ACADEMIC POLICIES
Academic policies which apply to all UCD students are described in the General Information section of this bulletin. The policies that follow apply specifically to the College of Business and Administration and Graduate School of Business Administration.
All students are responsible for knowing and following the provisions set forth in this bulletin. Any questions concerning those provisions are to be directed to the College office. The College cannot assume responsibility for problems resulting from a student’s failure to follow the policies stated in the bulletin, or misinformation given by someone other than a staff member of the College. Similarly, students are responsible for all deadlines, rules, and regulations stated in the Schedule of Courses.
Academic Ethics (Dishonesty, Cheating)
Students are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with the highest standards of honesty and integrity. Cheating, plagiarism, illegitimate possession and disposition of examinations, alteration, forgery, or falsification of official records, and similar acts or the attempt to engage in such acts are grounds for suspension or expulsion from the University.
In particular, students are advised that plagiarism consists of any act involving the offering of the work of someone else as the student’s own. It is recommended that students consult with their instructors as to the proper preparation of reports, papers, etc., in order to avoid this and similar offenses.
Registration for Business Courses
The course admission criteria are designed to meet a number of objectives:
1. To assure access to business courses for students seeking a business degree.
2. To serve students in other colleges who have business-related educational objectives or requirements.
3. To serve the nondegree-seeking special students who have specific career or educational goals.
In order to serve the needs of nonbusiness degree students, core courses in the College of Business (Acct. 200, B.Ad. 100, B.Ad. 200, B.Law 300, Fin. 305, Mk. 300, Or.Mg. 330, Pr.Mg. 300, Q.M. 201) will be open to all University of Colorado students in good standing on a space-available basis. However, students admitted to the College of Business will be given priority in registering. For all business courses, nonbusiness degree students will be able to enroll up to a maximum of 21 semester hours.


College of Business and Administration j 21
Admission to noncore business courses will be limited to the following students:
1. Those admitted to the College of Business. (Refer to Model Degree Program in this section.)
2. Nonbusiness degree students who may request admission to business courses outside the core listed above. However, the total number of College of Business courses may not exceed the 21-semester-hour limit, and students must have the prerequisites for all courses requested.
3. Nondegree special students who may enroll for a maximum of 15 semester hours of business courses. Students must have the prerequisites for all courses requested.
Attendance Regulations
Classroom attendance is at the discretion of the instructor. Students are responsible for determining each instructor’s policy on attendance.
Adding and Dropping Courses
See the General Information section of this bulletin for University-wide drop/add policies.
Administrative Drop
The College reserves the right to drop administratively students who are incorrectly enrolled in business courses. Instructors also may recommend to the College of Business and Administration office that students who fail to meet expected course attendance or course prerequisites be dropped from the course.
Withdrawal
Students may withdraw without discredit at any time prior to the start of the final examination period.
Students who leave the University before the end of the semester should obtain a Withdrawal Form from the resident dean’s office and follow the instructions on the form. The completed form must be turned in to the Office of Admissions.
Appeal Procedure
Students should contact a business adviser in the College of Business and Administration office for appeal and petition procedures pertaining to rules and regulations of the College.
SPECIFIC UNDERGRADUATE ACADEMIC POLICIES
Standards of Performance
Students are held to basic standards of performance established for their classes with respect to attendance, active participation in course work, promptness in completion of assignments, correct English usage both in writing and in speech, accuracy in calculations, and general quality of scholastic workmanship.
In general, examinations are required in all courses and for all students, including graduating seniors.
To be in good standing, students must have an overall grade-point average of not less than 2.0 (C = 2.0) for
all course work attempted and a 2.0 for all business courses attempted. This applies to work taken at all University campuses. Activity physical education and remedial courses are not included in the overall average.
When semester grades become available, students below standard will be notified of (1) probationary status or (2) suspension. Students are responsible for being aware of their academic standing at all times and late grades and/ or notification does not waive this responsibility.
College rules governing probation and suspension are as follows:
1. Any student whose overall grade average, or business course average, is less than 2.0 will be placed on probation immediately. A student may be removed from probation when the overall average and the business average have been raised to 2.0.
2. A student will remain on probation as long as the student maintains normal degree progress each semester as determined by the College, and obtains no grade below a C; such probationary status may continue a maximum of four regular semesters (including summer) providing these provisions have been met. Failure to meet these provisions will result in indefinite suspension.
3. Indefinitely suspended students may attend the University of Colorado summer term in order to improve their grade averages in the area of deficiency, but may not attend any division of the University for at least two regular (fall and spring) semesters.
4. A student who has been under indefinite suspension for one calendar year may petition for readmission to the College of Business and Administration. If readmitted, that readmission will be on a probationary status. After being readmitted under such probationary status, any student who fails to comply with the requirements of his/her probation will be subject to permanent suspension.
5. Any student who is placed on suspension more than once will be permanently suspended from the College of Business.
6. Any student earning all failing grades or no academic credit for the semester will not be permitted to register without the resident dean’s approval.
7. Official combined degree students are required to maintain the same standards of performance as College of Business students in order to be continued in the combined business program.
Scholastic Load
The normal scholastic load of an undergraduate business student is 15 semester hours, with a maximum of 18 hours during the fall/spring semesters and 12 hours during summer terms. A maximum of 3 hours can be taken during the interim/vacation session. Hours carried concurrently in the Division of Continuing Education, whether in classes or through correspondence, are included in the student’s load.
Grading, Point System, and Pass/Fail Option
See the General Information section for University-wide grading system and pass/fail policy. Students in the College may not take required business or nonbusiness courses, or business elective courses, on a pass/fail basis. A maximum


28 / University of Colorado at Denver
of 16 hours of pass/fail credit may be applied toward the B.S. degree in business; transfer students may take 1 hour pass/fail for every 8 hours successfully completed at this institution. Pass/fail determination must be made within the posted deadline, and is irreversible. A maximum of 6 hours pass/fail may be taken in any one semester. Failed courses may be repeated, but the F will be included in the grade-point average.
The only incomplete grade given in the College is IF. An IF grade is assigned when documented circumstances clearly beyond the student’s control prevent the student from completing course requirements (exams, papers, etc.). Generally, students must make up the missing work and may not retake the entire course. Students should not register for the class a second time but should make up the work with the instructor giving the IF. All IF grades must be made up within one year, or the IF will be changed to a grade of F.
Honors Program—Undergraduate
Upon recommendation of the faculty, students who demonstrate superior scholarship are given special recognition at graduation.
Students must achieve an overall grade-point average of 3.3 and a grade-point average of 3.5 in all business courses taken at the University of Colorado to be considered for cum laude.
Those who achieve an overall grade-point average of 3.5 and a grade-point average of 3.7 in all business courses taken at the University of Colorado will be considered for magna cum laude.
Credit
To receive credit, all courses must be listed on the student’s permanent record page by the Office of Admissions and Records. Credit is then evaluated by the College of Business to determine degree acceptability. Courses completed at any University of Colorado campus are credited toward degree requirements if appropriate to the degree program.
Transfer Credit
Credits in business and nonbusiness subjects transferred from other institutions will be limited to the number of credit hours given for equivalent work in the regular offerings of the University. Only work from regionally accredited institutions will transfer to the College. In general, the College will limit transfer credit for business courses taken at a lower division level to such courses as the College offers at that level. Actual equivalent courses usually may be substituted for required courses. However, students must verify with advisers that courses are equivalent. Careful checking is required. A course given at another institution may have the same name and same textbook as a required business course and still be taught with a nonbusiness emphasis or other variations that gives it little value for business.
A maximum of 60 semester hours taken at junior colleges may be applied toward the B.S. degree in business. Remedial or vocational work does not transfer. Business courses from junior colleges will not be applied toward
degree requirements if the course work is offered at the junior-senior level at UCD.
Business students desiring to take work at another institution or another campus of the University of Colorado and apply the work toward the B.S. degree in business must have prior approval of the College of Business. No credit will be given for courses without the proper approval. Grades of C or better must be earned to receive degree credit. Generally, only elective credit is acceptable in transfer from other institutions once the student has enrolled in the College.
All courses in the area of emphasis must be taken at the University of Colorado. Transfer students must take a minimum of 30 semester hours of business courses at the University after admission to the College of Business.
For a detailed explanation of transfer credit, see the General Information section of this bulletin.
Correspondence Credit
Only 30 semester hours of credit, 9 of which may be in business, taken through correspondence study will be counted toward the B.S. degree in business. A business adviser’s approval is required prior to registering for correspondence courses. Required business courses and area of emphasis courses cannot be taken by correspondence. All correspondence courses are evaluated to determine their acceptability.
Credit by Examination
College Level Examination credits (CLEP subject examinations only) are acceptable toward degree requirements to a maximum of 30 hours. Specific information is available in the College of Business and Administration office.
CLEP credit will be applied in the same manner as transfer credits. For credit, students must rank in the 66.7 percentile based on national available norms. Generally, CLEP credit is only appropriate for (a) nonbusiness requirements and (b) nonbusiness electives. A maximum of 6 hours of credit in any one course area is allowed. CLEP may not be used in course areas where credit has already been allowed. General examinations are not acceptable.
Advanced Placement (CEEB) credit will be given where appropriate to students who make scores of 3, 4, or 5.
Special Sources of Credit
Without prior approval of the resident dean, the College reserves the discretion of accepting or rejecting all special sources of credit. A maximum of 6 hours of physical education, theory, recreation or dance credits can be accepted toward graduation.
Up to 6 hours of experimental studies or independent study programs can be accepted toward graduation. A maximum of 3 hours of this type of credit may be taken in any one semester.
Junior or senior business students desiring to work beyond regular business course coverage may take variable credit courses (1 to 3 semester hours) under the direction of an instructor who approves the project, but the student must have prior approval. Information and request forms are available in the College of Business and Administration office. The request form must be signed by the instructor,


College of Business and Administration / 29
division head of the student’s area of emphasis, and resident dean.
To receive credit for independent study courses and experimental studies, students must obtain the dean’s approval prior to registering for the course. Further information and forms are available in the College office.
No credit is given for work-experience or Cooperative Education programs.
ROTC Credit
Students who are enrolled in and complete the ROTC program may apply a maximum of 12 semester hours of advanced ROTC credit toward nonbusiness elective requirements and toward the 120-semester hour total degree requirement for the B.S. degree in business. No credit toward requirements is granted for basic (freshman and sophomore) ROTC courses. The ROTC adviser can provide more detailed information.
Study Abroad Credit
Transfer credit from study abroad programs is most appropriately applied as nonbusiness elective credit. Students are responsible for checking with a business adviser for approval prior to the semester in which they intend to study abroad. Information on the various study abroad programs is available at the Office of International Education on the Boulder campus.
No Credit
Due to space limitation, business classes may not be taken on a no-credit basis.
Special Student Hours
Accepted business students may transfer toward degree requirements a maximum of 12 hours of work taken as a special student. Approval of the resident dean is required.
UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE PROGRAM
The undergraduate curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science (Business) degree is intended to help the student achieve the following general objectives:
1. Understanding of the activities that constitute business enterprise and of the principles underlying administration of those activities.
2. Ability to think through logically and analytically the kinds of complex problems encountered by management.
3. Facility in the arts of communication.
4. Comprehension of the human relationships involved in an organization.
5. Awareness of the social and ethical responsibilities of those in administrative positions.
6. Skill in the art of learning that will help the student continue self-education after leaving the campus.
Admission of Freshman Students
See the General Information section for admission and application procedures.
Prospective students in business are encouraged to pursue a broad college preparatory program in high school, with
particular emphasis on English, mathematics, the social sciences, and speech. The College expects entering freshmen to present 15 units of the secondary course work. Completion of two units of algebra and two units of English composition is strongly recommended.
Admission of Transfer Students
See the General Information section of this bulletin for admission and application procedures.
Intrauniversity Transfer
Students who want to transfer to the College of Business and Administration from another college or school of the University must formally apply at the College of Business office. A minimum University of Colorado grade-point average, business course grade-point average, and minimum number of academic hours (both established by the College) are required for consideration. Transfer deadlines are August 1 for fall, December 1 for spring, and May 1 for summer.
Students desiring admission to official combined programs must apply to and be accepted by the College of Business. Minimum grade-point averages are also established for these jointly enrolled students. Applications are available from a business adviser.
The College will consider each application based upon the student’s academic standing, the quality of the student’s academic work, and the courses completed.
To apply for an intrauniversity transfer, students must submit an Intra-University Transfer form and UCD transcript to a busines adviser. Forms are available at UCD Admissions or the College of Business office; transcripts are available at UCD Records. The transcript must include the student’s most recent semester at the University. Students with previous course work from other institutions are also required to submit a copy of their transfer credit evaluations (advanced standings).
Combined Programs and Double Majors
Official combined programs are available only in conjunction with the College of Engineering and Applied Science, the College of Design and Planning (Boulder campus), the School of Journalism, and the School of Pharmacy. These combined programs and double degree programs with the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences require approval of the deans of both colleges. Applications are available from a business adviser. Students receiving two degrees, one of which is business, but not an official combined program, must complete at least 150 semester hours of course work. Such programs are considered five-year programs.
Second Undergraduate Degree
Students may apply to the College of Business and Administration to earn a second undergraduate degree, provided the first undergraduate degree is in a field other than business. The student who is accepted for the second undergraduate degree will be required to pursue courses in the sequence normally required for a degree plan. For example, if a student registered for the second degree has not had the required mathematics or general education courses, these must be taken before the student will be

COMBINED PROGRAMS
Numerous career opportunities exist for persons trained in both a specialized field and management. For this reason, students may be interested in combined programs of study leading to completion of degree requirements concurrently in two fields. Such combined programs have been arranged for engineering and business, pharmacy and business, and environmental design and business and may be arranged for other professional combinations as well.
The two programs of study proceed concurrently, terminating together with the awarding of two degrees. Generally, at least five years will be needed for such combined programs. No substitutions are allowed in this program. Students desiring to transfer from combined programs to the College of Business must apply and will be considered as intrauniversity transfers.
For students in combined programs, the requirements for the degree in business are as follows:
1. An application for admission to the combined program must be filed with the College of Business and approved by the deans of both colleges.
2. Completion of at least 48 semester hours in business and economics, to include Econ. 201 and 202 (6 semester hours), required courses in business (30 semester hours), and a business area of emphasis (12 semester hours).
3. Completion of at least 30 semester hours of business courses at the University of Colorado while enrolled in the College of Business.
4. Completion of nonbusiness requirements in mathematics, communications, and the social and behavioral sciences in a degree program approved in advance by the College of Business. In addition, for some courses and areas of emphasis, there are prerequisite requirements which must be met.
5. At least a 2.0 grade average must be earned in all courses undertaken in the College of Business, the area of emphasis, and the University of Colorado. Students in a combined degree program are subject to all policies of the College of Business.
6. Any combined degree student who does not make reasonable progress toward the completion of the business degree requirements, as determined by the College of Business, may be dropped from the program.
7. The number of students accepted in any combined program may be numerically limited and is dependent upon existing demand each semester.

Remedial work is required of all applicants accepted for the M.B.A. and M.S. programs who do not have the mathematical and programming skills. Students entering any of the graduate programs are required to take either
B.Ad. 502 (Fundamentals of Business Statistics) or to pass satisfactorily a qualifying examination covering this subject matter.
General Information—Master’s Programs
Advising. All graduate students should report first to the student adviser in the Graduate School of Business Administration office for the purpose of ascertaining deficiencies and principal field of interest. The division heads of each area serve as faculty advisers.
During the first term of residence, each student should prepare a degree plan. This plan, with appropriate signatures, should be filed in the Graduate School of Business Administration.
Course Load. The normal course load for full-time graduate students is 12-15 semester hours.
Minimum Hours Required. A candidate for a master’s degree in business must complete a minimum of 30 semester hours of graduate work plus any deficiencies. A maximum of 6 semester hours of graduate work can be transferred from another AACSB-accredited master’s program.
Comprehensive Examination. A comprehensive examination is not required for students pursuing the Master of Business Administration degree program. Each candidate for a Master of Science degree is required to take a comprehensive final examination during the candidate’s last semester of residence. Students must be registered when they take this examination. Comprehensive examinations are given in November, April, and July.
Students must file an Application for Admission to Candidacy and Diploma Card with the Graduate School of Business Administration prior to the final term of their residency.
Minimum Grade-Point Average. A minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 must be achieved in courses taken after the student’s admission to the graduate program. Effective fall semester 1974 all courses taken as a special student at the University of Colorado count toward the overall grade-point average for students who are later admitted to any graduate program in business. If the student’s cumulative grade-point average falls below 3.0, he or she will be placed on academic probation and given one regular semester (summer terms excluded) in which to achieve the required 3.0 cumulative average. Failure to achieve the required average within the allotted time period will result in dismissal.
Work receiving the lowest passing grade, D, may not be counted toward a degree, nor may it be accepted for


College of Business and Administration / 37
the removal of deficiencies. A graduate student may repeat a course once for which he or she has received a grade of D or F. Both the original grade and the grade for the repeated course count in the computation of the grade-point average.
To earn a grade of W (withdrawal) in a course, a graduate student must be earning a grade of C or better in that course. Students will not be permitted to withdraw from courses after the tenth week of the semester.
An IF grade shall be a valid grade only until the middle of the second semester (summer terms excluded) following that in which the grade of IF is given. By the end of that interval, the instructor concerned shall have turned in a final grade of A, B, C, D, or F. If no reports are received from the instructor within the allotted time, the IF shall be converted to F.
Time Limit. All 30 semester hours of graduate work, including the comprehensive final examination, should be completed within five years. Work done earlier will not be accepted for the degree unless validated by a special examination. Candidates for the master’s degree are expected to complete their work with reasonable continuity.
Master of Business Administration
The Master of Business Administration program is devoted to the concepts, analytical tools, and communication skills required for competent and responsible administration. The administration of an enterprise is viewed in its entirety and within its social, political, and economic environment.
In addition to the background requirements for a master’s degree listed above, the candidate for the M.B.A. degree must complete the specific requirements of the M.B.A. curriculum (30 semester hours) as follows:

College of Design and Planning
John M. Prosser, Acting Dean
INFORMATION ABOUT THE COLLEGE
The College of Design and Planning (formerly College of Environmental Design) at UCD offers five graduate programs: the Master of Architecture, Master of Architecture in Urban Design, Master of Interior Design, Master of Landscape Architecture, and Master in Planning and Community Development; and one service program, the Center for Community Development and Design. Undergraduate programs in the College are available only through the University of Colorado at Boulder, and students interested in the Bachelor of Environmental Design degree should see the catalog for that campus.
The College offers programs for two purposes: to train men and women who can meet the complex and demanding challenge of developing and shaping the environment, and to provide the practicing professional a means of keeping abreast of cultural and technological changes.
In recent years, the roles and responsibilities of the environmental design professions have broadened. The social and physical problems encountered by the architect, urban designer, the landscape architect, the planner, the technologist in environmental systems, and the interior designer have minimized the lines of demarcation among these professions and interdependence among them has increased.
The College maintains traditional and essential ties with the professions and practitioners in the community, and relies on local professionals to reinforce its teaching program.
The College of Design and Planning is a member of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture and Collegiate Schools of Planning and is represented by its students, faculty, and alumni on various professional boards, committees, and societies. In 1982, the National Architectural Accrediting Board renewed the College’s accreditation for a five-year period. Its program in planning was granted renewed recognition by the American Planning Association in 1980 for a five-year period. In 1981, the landscape program received its initial two-year accreditation from the American Society of Landscape Architects.
Full professional status in most environmental design fields generally requires a minimum of five or six years of academic experience and two or three years of practical experience followed by state registration or licensing through a professional examination.
Qualifications for success in these careers are not easily measured. Candidates for this profession must have the ability to complete successfully an academic program
ranging from fundamental humanistic and scientific courses through applied technical activity to full creative development. They should have a background of secondary education that includes courses in mathematics and physics. Some experience in creative activity may aid them in predetermining if personal satisfaction is derived from the creative process.
Design and Planning Resource Center
The Design and Planning Resource Center, a branch of the Auraria Library, serves as a learning resource center for the design fields. It contains the following collections provided to support the curricula of the College:
1. Professional reference collection containing technical materials selected to support design and planning studio projects.
2. Core collection of circulating materials comprised of standard works in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, interior design, and urban design.
3. Collection of planning documents issued by local, regional, state, and federal agencies with an emphasis on materials pertaining to Colorado communities and concerns.
4. Collection of periodicals relating to the design fields.
5. Reserve collection providing resource materials for required and supplemental class reading.
6. Small, but growing, nonprint media collection which includes architectural slides, multi-media kits, microcomputer software, and microforms.
In addition, the main Auraria Library houses background and research materials of interest to design and planning students and faculty, including materials in the arts, humanities, social sciences, and engineering.
The branch library is open 5 5 hours per week, including some evening and weekend hours. The staff includes a librarian, one library assistant, and several student assistants. The branch library provides a number of services including reference and research assistance, library-use instruction, and circulation of materials. Additional services, such as interlibrary loans and computer assisted research, are provided through the main Auraria Library.
Computer-Aided Instruction
The College established a computer-aided instruction laboratory in the fall of 1981. The laboratory has micro and mini-computers with access to computers on other campuses. The computers are being used in the areas of


42 / University of Colorado at Denver
computer-aided design, solar architecture, space planning, computer graphics, site engineering, and planning.
Model Shop and Photo Laboratory
The College maintains a darkroom for student use as well as a variety of camera and audiovisual equipment. These facilities are valuable aides in preparing class presentations, design projects, portfolios, and in learning multi-media techniques for presentations. The model shop is available for use in fabricating architectural models and in furniture design projects. A staff technician is on duty to assist students in the use of these facilities.
Financial Aid
Graduate scholarships and fellowships are available to continuing students only, with the exception of Colorado Grants. A limited number of Colorado Grants are available to new students who are residents of the state of Colorado and who fulfill the University’s criteria for financial need. Forms to apply for State of Colorado Graduate Grants, Federal Work-Study Assistance, and Federal National Direct Student Loans (NDSL) are available through the Office of Financial Aid, UCD, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202.
Grade-Point Average Requirement and Scholastic Suspension
Students must maintain a 3.0 average for a degree. Students who fail to meet the minimum requirements during any semester will be permitted to continue their studies during the second semester, but will be placed on probation. Students who fail to meet the minimum requirement after two semesters will be suspended. After a period of one year, appeal for readmission may be made by petitioning the Scholastic Deficiency Committee of the College or the director.
Special Students
Beginning with fall 1981, the College of Design and Planning accepts only up to 16 credit hours of courses taken as a graduate special student for application toward degree credit.
Foreign Students
To better serve foreign students who are considering a second professional degree, the College has begun a policy of admitting students coming directly from overseas into the spring semester only. Applications for all programs must be received by March 15 of the preceding year. All other application requirements must be met.
Residence Requirement
A student must be in residence for at least one full academic year’s work, which is normally 30 semester hours.
Time Limit
Beginning with fall 1981, students in two-year programs must complete all work required for a graduate degree within a five-year period from the time of first enrolling
for classes as a degree candidate. Students in three-year programs must complete all work within a six-year period.
Elective Courses
Elective courses must be at the 300 level or above. Students should check with their respective director regarding subject choices.
MASTER OF ARCHITECTURE
The Division of Architecture offers three degree programs, all of which lead to the Master of Architecture. The three programs are named by typical time-in-residence: three-year, two-year, and one-year programs. The three-and two-year programs lead to the first professional degree for architectural practice; the one-year program leads to a second professional degree.
The one-year program is open only to applicants already holding the first professional degree in architecture (generally the bachelor’s, occasionally the master’s) and entails a minimum of 32 credit hours. Individually organized studies are focused on the student’s interests in architecture or in architecture with an energy specialization.
The two-year program is open to holders of the Bachelor of Environmental Design or Architectural Studies degree and is arranged to receive graduates of the Division of Environmental Design at Boulder or similar undergraduate studies at other schools and entails a minimum of 64 credit hours.
The three-year program is open to holders of the bachelor's degree in all other fields and typically requires 96 credit hours for completion.
Curriculum
The Division of Architecture is a professional school; its role and purpose is the education of men and women who wish to design buildings. The division provides studies in architectural design, graphic communications, history and theory, technology, and professional practice.
Architectural design is the central activity of the several programs and the design studio serves to integrate architectural learning from all course work in the supportive arts and sciences. Most studios are conducted on the case study method; skill in the definition and the solution of design problems is acquired through the analysis and the working of exercises which simulate actual building problems. Advanced studio options are available with projects in the Center for Community Development and Design. The design thesis is the culmination of architectural studies.
Communications courses provide the graphic skills necessary to present design ideas. History and theory courses anchor the student’s work in social responsibility, and in an understanding of the forces that give shape to buildings and cities. Technology courses give basics in structures, and in the environmental concerns of utilities, heating, lighting, and acoustics. Professional courses provide exposure to the workings of contemporary practice, and an internship in a practicing professional’s office is a course option in the final year.
The goal of all of these studies is competency for the


College of Design and Planning / 43
graduates of the division as intelligent, knowledgeable, and creative designers, each at the threshold of entry to architectural careers in private practice, government, or industry.
Admission Requirements
APPLICATION
The complete set of materials for application for the Master of Architecture programs include the application form, college transcripts, three recommendations, statement of purpose, and a portfolio of academic and professional work. To be considered for admission, the complete set of application materials must be received by March 15 preceding the fall semester of entry. The portfolio must be no larger than 14 inches by 17 inches. The application form and additional information may be obtained by writing to the Director of Architecture, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202.
Applicants to the three-year program must hold a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Fine Arts, or Bachelor of Science degree from an accredited four-year college or university. The three-year program requires a prerequisite of college mathematics through introductory calculus. This mathematics prerequisite must be completed before entering the program.

A Bachelor or Master of Architecture degree from an accredited architecture program is required for acceptance into the one-year master’s program.
ADMISSION
An Admissions Committee will review the application materials and select students to be admitted to programs. Applicants will be notified that they have been accepted, or have not been accepted, prior to May 1.
The recommended minimum grade-point average is 2.75 on a 4-point scale. If the student’s grade-point average is below 2.75, the Graduate Record Examination is recommended as part of the application materials. The student, however, will be evaluated for admission on the basis of all the application materials and not the grade-point average alone.
One-Year Program
The one-year program is available only to students already holding the first professional degree, the Bachelor or Master of Architecture. The Master of Architecture is awarded upon satisfactory completion of 32 semester hours of studio course work and thesis. Two study programs are offered, Urban Design (see the Division of Urban Design) and Energy.
The Energy curriculum was inaugurated in the fall of 1981 and brings together outstanding faculty from the profession and research. The program provides studio opportunities exploring energy as the basis for a new design paradigm, and provides studies in building energy performance quantification. These studies in energy design and analysis are supported by the computer laboratory within the College.
Two-Year Program
The two-year program is open to the student with a four-year Bachelor of Environmental Design or Architectural Studies degree who seeks the first professional degree in architecture. The program is a two-year, 64-semester-hour series of studies leading to the Master of Architecture degree.
Students in the third or fourth year of the University of Colorado at Boulder Environmental Design degree program who intend to pursue the Master of Architecture should take Structures (ENVD 452 and 453); Environmental Systems (ENVD 450); Materials and Methods of Construction (ENVD 451); Architectural History (ENVD 470 and 471); and Architectural Graphics (ENVD 420 and 421); and a minimum of six semesters of design (including ENVD 400 and 401). Students from other four-year design programs must have taken two semesters of architectural history, two semesters of basic structures (statistics, strength of materials) and must show, with the portfolio, a graphics ability equivalent to the two-semester course in architectural graphics. Required courses in the two-year program that have been taken by the student in prior studies may be waived if the grade received is B or above. The Master of Architecture is awarded upon satisfactory completion of 64 semester hours and all required courses.

MASTER OF ARCHITECTURE IN URBAN DESIGN
Urban design is one of the graduate design and planning programs taught at UCD’s ideal location in the core of the metropolitan Denver area. The curricula focus on the complex problems that are generated by change and growth in a vigorous urban and regional laboratory. Emphasis is given to participatory community and publicly funded design, research, and technology. Special efforts are made to use the vast resources available from federal, state, and local agencies and institutions which are concentrated in the immediate community. Specific courses and projects are arranged to incorporate these allied academic, civic, and citizen inputs into the design processes.
The sequential format, content, and progression of the Architecture in Urban Design program has been developed to provide a broad range of study which combines architecture, landscape, planning, urban design, business, and public affairs methodologies. Direct contact and coordination with the activities of the students and faculty in these disciplines is an essential part of the curriculum. Importance is given to the problem-solving processes associated with mixed use complexes, neighborhood, activity center, village, town, mainstreet, and cityscape projects.
Specific courses in urban technologies, urban theories, environmental impact analysis, including social and economic planning factors, are available.
Options
Two sequences are available in the program. The one-year program is for students who have obtained a five-
year Bachelor of Architecture degree. The other is a nonprelicensing two-year graduate degree for students who have received a bachelor’s degree in environmental design, landscape, architectural studies, planning, business, engineering, social sciences, or urban studies. In both sequences, studio and/or field work is the focal point for the specialization selected by the student. The projects chosen are developed on an independent study basis. Meetings, seminars, and evaluations are scheduled between the student and the faculty advisers. Cognate courses are selected with the guidance of the faculty advisers from related subjects offered by the College or other units of the University.
Postprofessional
In the one-year program, the thesis sequence is a synthesis of the special factors influencing urban design in one of five options: recreational facilities, community development, rehabilitation or renewal, transportation, and health care. In this phase students are carefully advised throughout the period of their independent research and design studies. Opportunities to do state and city outreach work in association with the Center for Community Development and Design (the College state-wide design aid field program for ethnic and economic minorities) are available or heavily emphasized. Many other real problems and/or case studies from the community, which require anticipatory and feasibility design and development, also are considered. During the final sequence semester of the one-year program, students have a wide choice of professional electives which can be closely related to their thesis problem selection. Whenever possible, individual or team projects in cooperation with allied disciplines and institutions are encouraged.
A degree is awarded upon satisfactory completion of 30 semester credit hours minimum. The program is structured for students who wish to pursue advanced studies in compound, complex community architecture and urban design problems.

Mainstreets
In the two-year program, the new intercollegiate urban design emphasis option is now operational. The University of Colorado at Denver is responding to a regional and national demand for educated young professionals in the complex field of mainstreet conservation. The two distin-


College of Design and Planning / 45
guishing features of this program are (1) urban design for the first time is being given the interdisciplinary curriculum in the fields it actually covers in the professional world (public affairs, business, real estate development, community development, planning and design and (2) the program and its curriculum are based on the evolving concept of service-learning education.
Through the College of Design and Planning, outreach division requests for mainstreet technical assistance and research studies are matched with faculty and student research and assistance teams through existing core and elective courses. In one-third of the curriculum, students either will have the opportunity or will be required to join with interdisciplinary assistance teams. Not only does the students’ education improve, but also Colorado communities receive a service that draws upon the most current state of knowledge, technologies, and methodologies.
Students will be given the knowledge base and practitioner skills to work successfully in a local context which embraces community composition, political organization, decision-making processes, small business management and operation, and the physical environment. Employment opportunities for persons completing the program include town management, economic development, mainstreets revitalization, and community development in the public sector as well as development, real estate, and planning in the private sector.
The program is structured and sequenced in such a manner as to maximize the opportunity for real world experience through design studio, internship, and thesis requirements. Whenever possible, students will be encouraged to work in a particular neighborhood or rural community throughout their programs.
Admission Requirements
In order for students to be considered for admission into the Master of Architecture in Urban Design program, they must submit application forms, college transcripts, three letters of recommendation, statement of purpose, and a portfolio of academic and professional work by March 15 preceding the fall semester they wish to enter. All portfolio materials submitted with the application must be in 8V2" by 14" format or smaller. If slides are included, they must be in a loose-leaf slide holder. It is recommended that students indicate the type and length of all work experience they have had since receiving a degree. Application forms and information may be obtained by writing to the Director of Master of Architecture in Urban Design, College of Design and Planning, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202.

MASTER OF INTERIOR DESIGN
The master’s degree program in Interior Design is structured to educate designers who will be qualified to
'Core courses.


46 / University of Colorado at Denver
assume responsible leadership roles in the continuing growth of the profession and in the improvement of the quality of mankind’s near environment by constructively relating the design process to mankind’s life processes.
There are two programs leading to the Master of Interior Design degree. The two-year program is open to applicants holding Bachelor of Interior Design, Bachelor of Environmental Design, or Bachelor of Architecture degrees. The three-year program is designed for applicants holding bachelor’s degrees in other fields from accredited four-year colleges or universities.
The program is characteristically unique in the following ways:
Multidisciplinary Approach. Individualized instruction and guidance are provided to help students acquire skills and knowledge integrated from related disciplines. Accordingly, the student develops personal models and methodologies within a multidisciplinary conceptual framework, acquiring the tools needed for analysis, design, and evaluation of interior environments.
Interior Design Orientation. The program relies heavily upon the conviction that the design of an interior space and the building form containing it are inextricably related. The former inwardly responds to the human environment, the latter outwardly responds to the natural environment. Both design activities require high degrees of interdependent specialization before designs are skillfully integrated.
Social and Behavioral Base. Understanding the social, behavioral, and biological implications of man-environment interactions is emphasized as an integral part of design research /problem-solving methods in all design studio work.
Coordinated University-Professional Community Learning Experiences. The program is a direct response to the Rocky Mountain region’s general recognition of a need for designers whose professional training is relevant to regional interests. In turn, the professional community serves as an auxiliary source of educational enrichment by providing students with opportunities to combine theoretical and applied learning.
Admission Requirements

MASTER OF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE
The Master of Landscape Architecture (M.L.A.) degree program at the University of Colorado at Denver is accredited by the Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board, American Society of Landscape Architects.
This academic program leading to the M.L.A. responds to a perceived need to offer professional training that prepares students to meet the complex and demanding challenges of shaping the arid region landscape.


College of Design and Planning / 47
Urban and rural development pressure in the western region has created an urgent need for comprehensive landscape problem-solving skills. These skills include an understanding of the earth sciences which determine the arid region concept of “environmental limits and tolerances.” The processes described in these related earth sciences provide a regional concept for designing and planning landscape for public and private use, human enrichment, and resource conservation.
Two programs are offered leading to the Master of Landscape Architecture degree. Students entering the program without a first professional degree are required to take a minimum of 96 hours. This is essentially a three-year program. Applicants who enter with a first professional degree (B.L.A. or B.Arch.) are required to take a minimum of 64 credit hours in a two-year program.
These two programs offer the candidate an opportunity to develop an elective package, parallel to the M.L.A. core curriculum, which would give the student the equivalent of a related professional minor. The electives are included in the hour requirements for both the two- and three-year programs.
A thesis is required of all M.L.A. candidates. The thesis is the culmination of the academic curriculum. More specifically, the thesis sequence requirement comprises three courses: Research Methods for Designers and Planners, Landscape Architecture Thesis Research, and Landscape Architecture Thesis. The thesis may be a design, research, natural resource, or community development topic, and each must include a case study proof.
The Curriculum
The curriculum has been planned to include those awarenesses and skills considered essential to core and advanced professional training in the field of landscape architecture. These areas include concentration in design, land and building technology, history and theory of the built environment, and a working knowledge of natural systems. The primary focus of the program is DESIGN and the design process.
Opportunities exist to develop complementary knowledge and skills related to interdisicplinary projects involving the other College of Design and Planning programs in Architecture, Planning and Community Development, Interior Design, and Architecture in Urban Design. Additionally, through the Center for Community Development and Design (CCDD is an outreach program in the College of Design and Planning), the M.L.A. candidate is afforded the opportunity for actual project experience either in the Denver metropolitan area or the State of Colorado.
The hierarchy of courses from term to term for the most part is planned sequentially leading to the thesis. The thesis is intended to be a comprehensive individual experience under the guidance of the entire L.A. faculty and applicable outside specialists.
Admission Requirements
Applicants to the three-year program or those who do not have a first professional degree (Bachelor of Landscape Architecture) should have proficiency in college mathematics, physical science, English, environmental science, and a basic course in art or drawing.
Applicants to the two-year program having undergraduate degrees in urban and regional planning, architecture, environmental design, or other physical design degrees are considered for admission upon individual evaluation of their undergraduate curriculum, scholastic performance, and professional experience. To be considered for admission into the graduate programs in landscape architecture, applicants must submit application forms, a $20 application fee, official college transcripts, three letters of recommendation, statement of purpose, and a portfolio of academic and professional work by March 15 preceding the fall semester they wish to enter the program. The portfolio format should be 14" by 17" or smaller.
Application forms and further information may be obtained by writing to the Director, Landscape Architecture, College of Design and Planning, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202.

MASTER’S DEGREE IN PLANNING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
The MPCD Division prepares students to become professional planners—career specialists in researching, designing, evaluating, and implementing strategies of environmental and community action. Careers for planners are found in such fields as environmental design, community development, land use and growth management, social services, environmental administration and assessment, polity analysis, energy development, natural resources, land development, private planning consultation, corporate planning, urban redevelopment, housing, and regional planning. Because Denver is the Rocky Mountain West’s central location for managing and planning these fields of action, UCD planning students are often able to combine learning general principles and skills in the classroom with practical working experience in nearby operating agencies and organizations. The program welcomes part-time and non-traditional students.
Curriculum
The curriculum requires 60 semester hours as a minimum for graduation. Forty-five of these semester hours are required core courses aimed at training the student in basic planning purposes, principles, content, research methods, techniques and implementation. Of these required credits, 3 are spent in experiential learning and internships with public agencies and other organizations. Three planmaking studios are required with the one possibility being an integrated studio with the other design division in the College, and the last studio being a thesis.
Another 15 credit hours of the curriculum are elective. They are chosen in consultation with the student’s faculty adviser to form a consistent pattern of planning expertise along the lines of the individual’s major interests. The courses may be chosen from the MPCD’s own core electives, from other programs in the College of Design and Planning, or from other graduate schools at UCD and the metro area. Typical areas of specialization have been land use, transportation, planning administration, community development, regional planning, urban design, social services, energy, and health planning.
Admission Requirements
Application forms must be submitted by March 15 for the fall semester. Entry into the program at other times is not normally permitted. Applications for admission are reviewed by a faculty-student committee. Criteria for admission include academic performance, work experience, interest, and motivation for study.
Application forms and information may be obtained by writing to Director, Planning and Community Development Program, College of Design and Planning, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202.
SPECIAL ACADEMIC PROGRAM
To provide unusual educational and practical experiences for outstanding students in all five graduate divisions, the College has established an optional, integrated, multidis-
ciplinary studio. These classes are offered fall semesters to final-year students who choose to work on unique public and private actual design and planning projects for which the College has been asked to provide educational, technical, and research assistance. During the last six years, more than 2 5 of these comprehensive studies have been completed by teams of students for towns, communities, neighborhoods, institutions, agencies, and companies. The studio is jointly taught by faculty from the five professional divisions and the Center for Community Development and Design.
CENTER FOR COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND DESIGN
The Center for Community Development and Design provides educational and technical assistance to solve design, planning, and community development problems upon request to groups, organizations, neighborhoods communities, and small towns that cannot afford or do not have access to these services. The center provides these services to aid in the development of the community and to encourage local self-reliance. These services are provided by faculty-student research and assistance teams.
A central goal of the center is to combine academic and practical experience of students working with community members on problem solving through supervised projects in the field. The faculty and staff of the center coordinate community projects for which students register through classes in the various academic curricula. Students who register for these projects assume an added responsibility of satisfying client needs that goes beyond academic credit.
Students are expected to do two things: utilize and develop professional expertise which not only enhances their own education but also better prepares them to assist in the community problem-solving process, and to develop an understanding for community participatory processes and be able to integrate these into the technical aspects of their community project.
The types of projects students may select to work on include developing a physical design program for a child care center in an inner-city neighborhood; assisting a neighborhood to organize, design, and implement a self-help housing program in a small mountain town; and developing a comprehensive plan in cooperation with a planning commission in a Colorado high plains town.
Mainstreets Program
A joint effort by UCD and the State Department of Local Affairs, this innovative program provides assistance to small towns attempting to restore the economic viability of their retail cores. Interdisciplinary teams of students will work closely with the communities to address planning, design, and economic development issues (see urban design program options). Please refer to the Master of Architecture in Urban Design program for Mainstreets.
Community Research Center
Conducting applied social science research on the structure and dynamics of communities—whether inner city,


College of Design and Planning / 49
suburb, or impacted rural area—is the mission of the Community Research Center (CRC). With the establishment of the CRC, the Center for Community Development and Design (CCDD) completes the triangle of what its projects encompass: service, education, and research. In addition to functioning as the in-house research arm on CCDD projects, the CRC also conducts research on a contractual basis for government entities, communities,
and design/planning professionals. The CRC affords University faculty and students the opportunity to participate in applied research projects.
Areas of expertise within the CRC include social impact assessment, program evaluation, social surveying, organizational development, conference planning, and consultation to the design and planning profession on the social and behavioral aspects of design and planning.

INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROFESSION
Through engineering the resources of nature are used for the benefit of humanity and the environment. Engineers today are expected not only to be competent planners and designers of technical systems, but significant contributors to the betterment of the environment in the social and humanistic sense as well. Engineering professional societies have committed themselves to the principle that, as mankind gains the ability to build more powerful machines and more useful devices, there must be a strong and successful effort to protect natural resources and the environment.
An engineering career demands hard work, and so does an engineering education. In return engineers have excellent opportunities to work in various places, meet new challenges, or move upward in management. The engineer is generally well paid and usually in demand; in the rare times when there is a surplus of certain kinds of engineers, individuals usually have little difficulty finding attractive opportunities in other fields.
Currently, registration is required in all states for the legal right to practice professional engineering. Although there are variations in the state laws, graduation from an accredited curriculum in engineering, subscription to a code of ethics, and four years of qualifying experience are required. In addition, two days of examinations covering the engineering sciences and the applicant’s practical experience are required in most states.
A listing of the fields in which engineers work would have many hundreds of entries. The following list gives only a brief summary.
The aerospace engineering sciences prepare engineers for an industry that encompasses the design and construction of both commercial and military aircraft and the development and fabrication of space vehicles. Advances in this technology have permitted the industry to enter also the fields of urban mass transit, undersea exploration, bioengineering, nuclear engineering, laser technology, and many other emerging high technology fields. An aerospace engineer often works at the forefront of engineering with scientists in the fields of mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, etc.
Applied mathematics meets the need of modern research, which is dependent upon advanced mathematical concepts. Almost all concerns that are engaged in industrial and scientific research today need applied mathematicians, as do organizations involved in computational work, statistical analysis, or stochastics.
Architectural engineering involves work within the building industry in engineering design, construction and contracting, or sales engineering. Areas of specialization are: construction engineering, environmental engineering, or structural engineering.
Chemical engineers convert natural resources into industrial and consumer products in facilities that include refineries and gasification plants. Among their products are many that often are not identified with chemical engineering—oils, metals, glass, plastics, rubber, paints, soaps and detergents, foods, beverages, synthetic and natural fibers, nuclear and exotic fuels, medicines, and many others.
Civil engineering offers an interesting and challenging career in the design and construction of buildings, bridges, dams, aqueducts, and other structures; in transportation systems including highways, canals, pipelines, airports, rapid transit lines, railroads, and harbor facilities; in the transmission of water and the control of rivers; in the development of water resources for urban use, industry, and land reclamation; in the control of water quality through water purification and proper waste treatment; in the construction and contracting industry; and in the problems concerned with mankind’s physical environment and the growth of cities.
Electrical engineering offers professional possibilities that include teaching and research in a university; research in development of new electrical or electronic devices, instruments, or products; design of equipment or systems; production and quality-control of electrical products for private industry or government; and sales or management for a private firm or branch of government. There are numerous specialties within electrical engineering. Among them are the design of computer systems and computer software; electromagnetic fields, which are basic to radio, television, and related systems; communication theory and signal processing; electrical machinery; solid-state, integrated-circuit, and electron devices; energy and power control systems; and others.
Electrical engineering and computer science involves work in computer engineering and computer science, including design and construction of efficient software systems as well as hardware design and manufacture. The application of microprocessors to many areas of engineering has opened new doors in computer engineering and computer science.
The engineering physicist works where new kinds of engineering are being born, or where many fields are being used jointly. General knowledge of the diverse fields of physics provides the ability to deal with industrial problems


College of Engineering and Applied Science / 53
that cannot be solved by a standardized procedure in a specialized field.
Mechanical engineering is very broad in scope, not identified with or restricted to a particular technology, vehicle, device, or system but instead is concerned with all such subjects, both individually and collectively. Typical starting assignments for the graduating senior include positions with oil, construction, and automotive industries.
INFORMATION ABOUT THE COLLEGE
The College of Engineering at the University of Colorado offers a total of 18 engineering bachelor degree programs through the following eleven departments located on three campuses—Boulder (UCB), Denver (UCD), and Colorado Springs (UCCS).
Aerospace Engineering Sciences (Boulder)
Chemical Engineering (Boulder)
Civil and Urban Engineering (Denver)
Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering (Boulder)
Computer Science (Boulder)
Electrical and Computer Engineering (Denver) Electrical Engineering (Boulder)
Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (Colorado Springs)
Mechanical Engineering (Boulder)
Mechanical Engineering (Denver)
Mathematics (Colorado Springs)
The 18 Bachelor of Science academic degree programs are offered as follows: 9 in Boulder, 5 in Denver, and 4 in Colorado Springs.
Undergraduate Degree Programs
The College of Engineering and Applied Science at UCD offers four-year programs leading to the B.S. degree in civil engineering, electrical engineering, electrical engineering and computer science, mechanical engineering, and applied mathematics. The civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering programs are currently accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
Availability of Degree Programs
The University of Colorado at Denver (UCD) will accept for matriculation only those prospective engineering students who designate a degree program awarded by the UCD College of Engineering and Applied Science. For 1983-84, the following engineering degrees are awarded by UCD: civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, electrical engineering and computer science, and applied mathematics. Students desiring degree programs other than those named above must apply to the campus awarding the degree. In some cases, the University campus accepting the student may grant permission to take courses on another CU campus, subject to enrollment limitations. In such cases, the engineering department of the admitting campus will counsel the student in the preparation of course schedules.
The course requirements during the freshman year are essentially the same throughout the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
About two-thirds of the sophomore year is common to all, and the remainder of the courses begin to point tt) the various fields of engineering taught; real specialization begins, however, in the junior year and carries on through the senior year. A fifth year of study leading to the master’s degree is strongly urged for students of more than usual ability who feel they can profit from additional study.
At UCD it is also possible for a student to obtain a bachelor's degree in engineering and a bachelor’s degree in business in five years plus one or two summer terms. Any of the engineering degree programs can be modified for an excellent premedical program. If liberal arts students elect certain courses in science, mathematics, and engineering as undergraduates, they may earn an engineering degree in four semesters after graduation from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Graduate Degree Programs
UCD offers graduate degree programs in civil engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and applied mathematics.
For information regarding courses and requirements leading to the Master of Engineering, Master of Science, or to the Ph.D. degree, see the Graduate School section of this bulletin.
Summer Courses
Summer term courses are planned for regular students and those who must clear deficiencies. Courses also are offered for high school graduates who wish to enter as freshmen and for those who need to remove subject deficiencies. For information about courses, students should write to the resident dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Science, UCD, for the Schedule of Summer Courses.
For some students there are advantages in starting their college careers during the summer term. Some required freshman and sophomore courses are normally offered at UCD during the summer. The summer term gives students a head start and enables them to take a lighter load during the fall semester or take additional courses to enrich their program.
Scholarships, Fellowships, and Loan Funds
Money contributed to the University Development Foundation for assistance to engineering students is deposited in appropriate accounts and used according to the restrictions imposed by the donors. Numerous industries match employee contributions. A list of companies contributing to scholarships and fellowships and different loan funds available can be obtained from the dean’s office.
Student Organizations
A general student organization, known as the Associated Engineering Students (AES), of which all students in the College are members, has supervision of matters of interest to the whole group.


54 / University of Colorado at Denver
Student chapters (or clubs) of the following professional societies are well established at UCD:
American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)
American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)
Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE)
Society of Women Engineers (SWE)
These societies meet frequently to present papers, speakers, films, and other programs of technical interest.
The following honorary engineering societies have active student chapters in the College of Engineering and Applied Science:
Chi Epsilon, civil and architectural fraternity
Eta Kappa Nu, electrical engineering society
Tau Beta Pi, engineering society
REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION
The student must meet the admission requirements described in the General Information section of this bulletin and of the College of Engineering at which the degree program selected by the student is offered. UCD currently offers the following programs: civil engineering, electrical engineering, electrical engineering and computer science, mechanical engineering, and applied mathematics. Persons of sufficient maturity and experience who do not meet the prescribed requirements for admission may be admitted upon approval of the resident dean.
Beginning students in engineering should be prepared to start analytic geometry-calculus. No credit toward a degree in engineering or applied mathematics will be given for algebra, trigonometry, or precalculus mathematics (Math. 101, 111, 112, and 113) but these courses will be offered to allow a student to make up deficiencies. Any student who questions the adequacy of his or her pre-college background in mathematics should see the applied mathematics coordinator for suggestions. A diagnostic test covering precalculus mathematics will be available, prior to registration, to assist new freshmen in selecting the appropriate beginning mathematics course.
To be prepared for the type of mathematics courses that will be taught, the student must be competent in the basic ideas and skills of ordinary algebra, geometry and plane trigonometry. These include such topics as the fundamental operations with algebraic expressions, exponents and radicals, fractions, simple factoring, solution of linear and quadratic equations, graphical representation, simple systems of equations, complex numbers, the binomial theorem, arithmetic and geometric progressions, logarithms, the trigonometric functions and their use in triangle solving and simple applications, and the standard theorems of geometry, including some solid geometry. It is estimated that it will usually take seven semesters to cover this material adequately in high school.
It is recommended that students take at least two units of a foreign language.

Former Students
Former students must meet the readmission requirements outlined in the General Information section of this bulletin. Students who have withdrawn must obtain permission of the resident dean to reenroll in the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
Students who interrupt their course of study may be required to take any preparatory courses which have been added during their absence or to repeat courses in which their preparation is assessed to be weak.
Transfer Students
Students transferring from other accredited collegiate institutions may be considered for admission on an individual basis if they meet the requirements outlined in the General Information section of this bulletin and the freshman requirements for entering the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
Intrauniversity transfers within the same campus of the University to the College of Engineering and Applied Science will be considered on an individual basis if both of the following conditions are fulfilled:
1. Enrollment limitations permit.
2. The student’s prior academic record fulfills the admissions requirements of the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
Intercampus transfers of students from one campus of the University to another will be considered on an individual basis if the following conditions are fulfilled:
1. Enrollment limitations permit.
2. The student has a minimum of 30 hours in an engineering curriculum at that campus, not counting transfer hours.
3. If an engineering student, the student is in good academic standing with at least a 2.0 cumulative grade-point average for all courses attempted and for all courses that count toward graduation requirements. If not an engineering student, the student’s academic record has all that fulfills the admission requirements of the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
‘Applicants not meeting these requirements will be considered on an individual basis. A student who is not prepared should expect to make up deficiencies.
2 A unit of work in high school is defined as a course covering a school year of not fewer than 36 weeks, with five periods of at least 40 minutes per week. (Two periods of manual training, domestic science, drawing, or laboratory work are equivalent to one period of classroom work.) This is equivalent to 180 actual periods per unit. Fractional credits of value less than one-half unit will not be accepted. Not less than one unit of work will be accepted in a foreign language, elementary algebra, geometry, physics, chemistry, or biology.
}Electives may be chosen from any of the high school subjects (except physical education) which are accepted by an accredited school for its diploma and which meet the standards as defined by the North Central Association. However, not more than two units will be considered from drawing, shop, or other vocational work; courses that have descriptive geometry features may be considered for elective units beyond the recommended units.


College of Engineering and Applied Science / 55
Interdepartmental transfers, whether on the same campus or from one campus to another within the College of Engineering, require the approval of both the gaining and losing departments in addition to the intercampus and inrrauniversity transfer requirements listed above.
Some course sequences should be completed before transferring to another campus; therefore, it is strongly recommended that students who contemplate transferring campuses see their department adviser prior to initiating the transfer request.
Both intrauniversity and intercampus transfers are subject to review by a faculty committee which evaluates the applicant's qualifications for academic success in engineering subjects.
TRANSFER CREDIT
After a prospective transfer student has made application and submitted transcripts to the University of Colorado, the Office of Admissions and Records issues a Statement of Advanced Standing (currently Form 382) listing those courses that are acceptable by University standards for transfer. A copy of this statement is received by the resident dean’s office at the time the student is admitted by the Office of Admissions and Records and is made a part of the permanent record. The appropriate engineering faculty departmental representative will use this copy of the form to indicate which of those credits listed may be acceptable toward the 136-hour graduation requirement in the College of Engineering and Applied Science and note the tentative acceptance of these credits by dating and initialing each acceptable course listed on the Statement of Advanced Standing. The student will be notified that the acceptance is tentative and is contingent upon satisfactory completion of a minimum of 30 semester hours at the University of Colorado before the credits may be officially applied toward the degree requirements. It is the responsibility of transfer students, after having completed the 30 semester credit hours at the University of Colorado, to request final validation of the credits by their department and to have this validation noted on the Statement of Advanced Standing kept in the resident dean's office.
If at any time a student wishes to have a course not previously accepted considered again for transfer, the student should consult with the departmental transfer adviser and complete a petition to the resident dean through the department chairman. All transfer credit must be validated by satisfactory achievement in subsequent courses.
NONTRANSFERABLE CREDITS
Students desiring to transfer credits from engineering technology programs should note that such credits are accepted only upon the submission of evidence that the work involved was fully equivalent to that offered in this College.
There are technology courses given with titles and textbooks identical to those of some engineering courses. These may still not be equivalent to engineering courses because of emphasis that is nonmathematical or otherwise divergent.
In order to assist engineering technology students with transfer planning, the following guidelines have been established:
Courses on basic subjects such as mathematics, physics, literature, or history may be acceptable for direct transfer of credit if they were taught as part of an accredited program for all students and were not specifically designated for technology students.
Students who have taken technology courses (courses with technology designations) that may be valid equivalents for engineering courses have these options:
1. They may petition faculty advisers to waive the requirement for the course. The requirement for a course can be waived if students demonstrate that, by previous course work, individual study, or work experience they have acquired the background and training normally provided by the course. No credit is given toward graduation for a waived course, but students may benefit from the waiver by being able to include more advanced work later in their curriculum. Other students may profit by taking the course at this College instead and thus establish a fully sound basis for what follows.
2. Credit for a course may be given if the course work was done at an accredited institution of higher education. The University of Colorado department involved may recommend that credit be transferred to count toward the requirements for a related course in its curriculum. Credit cannot be given for vocational-technical or remedial courses under rules of the University. (See section on transfer of college-level credit in the General Information section of this bulletin.)
3. Students may seek credit for the course by examination.
ACADEMIC POLICIES
Refer to the General Information section of this bulletin for descriptions of University-wide policies.
The following policies apply specifically to the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
Advanced Placement
Advanced placement credit may be granted by special examination of the department involved or by College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) tests. If the applicant has scored 4 or 5 on the CEEB Advanced Placement Examination, credit toward graduation may be awarded. Students who have scored 3 may be considered for advanced placement by the department concerned. All advanced placement and transfer credit must be validated by satisfactory achievement in subsequent courses, in accordance with standard transfer policies of the College.
Advanced placement credit for the freshman mathematics courses in calculus will be limited to not more than 4 hours each.
Attendance Regulations
Successful work in the College of Engineering and Applied Science is dependent upon regular attendance in all classes. Students who are unavoidably absent should make arrangements with instructors to make up the work missed. Students who, for illness or other good reason, miss a final examination must notify the instructor or the resident dean’s office no later than the end of the day


56 / University of Colorado at Denver
on which the examination is given. Failure to do so will result in an F in the course.
Changing Departments
Students who wish to change to another department within the College of Engineering and Applied Science must apply for transfer by submitting a Change of Major for Undergraduate Degree Students form which must have the approval of both departments concerned. (See also discussion of interdepartmental transfer requirements under Transfer Students.)
College-Level Examination (CLEP) Credit
Prospective students may earn college-level credit through the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) subject examinations, provided that they score at the 67th percentile or above. Departments will advise students of the credits accepted for such courses. The number of credits so earned must be within the limits of the number of elective hours of the individual department. A list of subjects in which CLEP examination credit will be accepted may be obtained from the College of Engineering and Applied Science office. (See also College-Level Examination Program in the General Information section of this bulletin.) (CLEP general examinations are not acceptable.)
Counseling
Freshman students are counseled by the resident dean’s office and by representatives from each academic department. These representatives are readily available to assist students with academic, vocational, or personal concerns.
Students are assigned specific departmental advisers for academic planning and should consult with the departmental chairman or designated representative for assignment.
Course Load Policy
Full-time Students. Undergraduate students employed less than 10 hours per week should register for the regular work as outlined in the departmental curricula. Additional courses may be allowed when there is satisfactory evidence that these extra courses can be taken profitably and creditably. Permission to take more than 21 hours may be granted only after written petition and approval of the departmental chairman and the resident dean.
Employed Students. Suggested maximum course loads for undergraduate students employed 10 or more hours per week are as follows:
Employed 40 or more hours per week—two courses (maximum of 9 semester hours)
Employed 30 to 39 hours per week—three courses (maximum of 12 semester hours)
Employed 20 to 29 hours per week—four courses (maximum of 15 semester hours)
Employed 10 to 19 hours per week—five courses (maximum of 18 semester hours)
Freshman Year
Fundamentals taught in the freshman year are of prime importance in the more advanced classes, and every effort is made to register a beginning freshman in the proper courses. (Course requirements for freshmen are detailed
within the curriculum given under each department.)
All freshmen are urged to consult their instructors whenever they need help in their assignments.
Repetition of Courses
A student may not register for credit in a course in which he already has received a grade of C or better. When a student takes a course for credit more than once, all grades are used in determining the grade-point average. An F grade in a required course necessitates a subsequent satisfactory completion of the course.
No Credit
An engineering student must petition for approval before enrolling no credit (NC) for any course. Once a course has been taken NC, the course cannot be repeated for credit.
Work Experience
It is the policy of the College of Engineering and Applied Science that any credits accrued in the official records of the student that were awarded for work experience (or for Cooperative Education experience) will not apply as part of the 136 semester hours required for an engineering degree.
Policy on Academic Progress
The following is a statement of the Policy on Academic Progress in the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
An overall average of 2.0 or better, in hours taken at the University of Colorado toward graduation requirements, is necessary to remain in good standing in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Grades earned at another institution are not used in calculating the grade-point average at the University of Colorado. However, grades earned in another school or college within the University of Colorado will be used in determining the student’s scholastic standing and progress toward the Bachelor of Science degree in the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
Students whose overall average falls below 2.0 will be placed on probation for the next semester in which they are enrolled in the College and will be so notified. If, after that semester the student’s average is still below 2.0, the student will be suspended from the College.
The following is additional information and interpretation of the policy:
1. Students who have been suspended are suspended indefinitely and may not enroll at any University of Colorado campus during any regular academic year, September through May, but may enroll in summer sessions or Vacation College and/or may take correspondence courses for credit through the Division of Continuing Education.
2. Students who have been suspended may apply for readmission if they bring their University of Colorado cumulative average up to a 2.0 through summer session, Vacation College, and/or correspondence work applying to engineering degree requirements as approved by a member of the Academic Progress Committee.
3. A student, upon satisfactorily completing at another college or university a minimum of 12 semester hours of acceptable work appropriate to an engineering curriculum


College of Engineering and Applied Science / 57
subsequent to suspension, may apply for readmission as a transfer student.
4. Applicants for readmission to the University of Colorado cannot be assured readmission.
5. During a probation semester the student must complete a normal load, i.e., 12 hours or more (for a fulltime student) of courses counting toward graduation requirements. Physical education courses do not count; if the student has previously completed 6 hours of ROTC courses, ROTC courses do not count; if 24 hours of social-humanistic subjects have been completed, social-humanistic subjects do not count.
6. Students who have been on probation or suspension at any time in the past will automatically be suspended if their overall average again falls below a 2.0.
Details of the probationary and suspension status and of the conditions for return to good academic standing will be stipulated in the letters of probation and suspension. Information regarding these matters may be obtained in the Office of the Resident Dean, Room UA 516.
Academic Ethics (Dishonesty, Cheating)
Students are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with the highest standards of honesty and integrity. Cheating, plagiarism, illegitimate possession and disposition of examinations, alteration, forgery, or falsification of official records, and similar acts or attempts to engage in such acts are grounds for suspension or expulsion from the University.
In particular, students are advised that plagiarism consists of any act involving the offering of the work of someone else as the student’s own. It is recommended that students consult with their instructors as to the proper preparation of reports, papers, etc., in order to avoid this and similar offenses.
At UCD there is a Code of Student Conduct. A copy of the code and information regarding all student grievance procedures may be obtained in the Dean of Student Affairs Office.
Grading System, Incompletes, Pass/Fail and Drop/Add Procedures
See the General Information section of this bulletin for the University of Colorado uniform grading system and for additional pass/fail information and drop/add procedures. Also see the current Schedule of Courses.
GRADING SYSTEM
It is particularly important to note that in the College of Engineering and Applied Science courses to be counted toward fulfilling the 136-hour graduation requirement cannot be taken no credit (NC).
INCOMPLETES
An incomplete may be given by the instructor for circumstances beyond the student’s control, such as a documented medical or personal emergency. When it is given, the student, the resident dean’s office, and the departmental office are informed, in writing, by the instructor what the student is to do in order to remove the incomplete and when the tasks are to be completed.
The instructor may assign only the I/F grade. The student is expected to complete the course requirements, e.g., the final examination and term paper, within the established deadline and not to retake the entire course. The grade will be converted automatically to a grade of F after one year unless the specified work is completed.
PASS/FAIL
The primary purpose for offering courses on a pass/ fail grade basis is to encourage students, especially juniors and seniors, to broaden their educational experience by electing challenging courses without serious risk to their academic records. In general pass/fail should be limited to 300- or 400-level courses. Students must process the pass/fail form during the first two weeks of the semester. Engineering students cannot take required courses pass/ fail. Below are specific pass/fail regulations for the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
1. A maximum of 16 pass/fail hours may be included in a student’s total program. A maximum of 6 hours may be taken in one semester, but it is recommended that not more than one course at a time be taken pass/ fail.
2. Courses that a student may elect to take pass/fail shall be designated and approved in advance by the student’s major department. If courses not so designated are taken, the earned grade will be recorded in place of the P or F grade. An engineering student who has not designated a major field will not be allowed the pass/fail option without approval through the resident dean’s office.
3. A transfer student may count toward graduation one credit hour of pass/fail for each 9 credit hours completed in the College; however, the maximum number of pass/fail hours counting toward graduation shall not exceed 16, including courses taken in the Honors Program under that program’s pass/fail grading system.
4. Students on academic probation should not enroll for pass/fail courses.
DROP/ADD
See the General Information section of this bulletin for drop/add procedures. Only under very extenuating circumstances will petitions for dropping courses be considered after the tenth week of the semester.
Sequence of Courses
Full-time students should complete the courses in the department in which they are registered according to the curriculum shown under their major department in this bulletin. Part-time students may need to modify the order of courses with adviser approval. Any required course failed should be repeated as soon as the course is offered again.
Students who receive a grade of D or F in a course that is prerequisite to another may not register for the succeeding course unless they have the permission of both the department and the instructor of the succeeding course.
Students may enroll for as much as 50 percent of their courses in work that is not a part of the prescribed curricula of the College of Engineering and Applied Science, provided they have at least a 2.0 grade average in all


58 j University of Colorado at Denver
college work attempted. Exceptions to this policy may be made by petition and may be made for students taking the engineering-business program.
Graduation With Honors
In recognition of high scholastic and professional attainments, Honors or Special Honors (at the discretion of the Engineering Honors and Recognition Committee) will be awarded at graduation. These honors will be recorded on the diplomas of the graduates receiving them and indicated in the commencement program.
Social-Humanistic Content of the Engineering Curriculum
The faculty of the College of Engineering and Applied Science requires that 24 semester hours should be considered the minimum of social-humanistic content of the degreegranting departments.
A minimum of 6 hours of literature is required. Six hours of social-humanistic subjects should be taken in the junior year and 6 in the senior year. These subjects should be taken from the following categories, with not fewer than 6 hours from category 2 below.
1. Literature (including foreign literature either in the original or in translation).
2. Economics, sociology, political science, history, and anthropology.
3. Fine arts and music (critical or historical).
With advance approval of the student’s major department, a maximum of 6 hours of communication skills (e.g., English composition, technical writing, public speaking, elementary foreign languages) may be substituted for 6 hours of the social-humanistic requirement. Alternatively, such courses may be counted as technical electives. Courses in business subjects such as accounting, contracts, and management should be used as technical electives where applicable. (Elective courses are to be coordinated with the faculty adviser.)
Qualified students will be permitted to take appropriate honors courses as substitutes for social-humanistic courses.
The Humanities and Literature Program is designed to develop communication and analytical skills which are essential for every professional person. Engineering students may select courses from the three components of the program:
1. Hum. 101, an interdisciplinary, team-taught class, is a core course in the Honors in Humanities Program offered by the Division of Arts and Humanities (see the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Division of Arts and Humanities, section of this bulletin for details).
2. A sequence of seven Great Books courses. This series, chronologically arranged, begins with the Classical Heritage and ends with Contemporary World Literature. Students may take any of these courses. They need not be taken in order; rather, students should choose those historical periods of most interest to them. (The sequence is Engl. 251, 252, 253, 254, 256, 257, 258—see the English course descriptions for details.)
3. Engl. 120, Introduction to Fiction, and Engl. 130, Introduction to Poetry and Drama, focus on methodology more than the Great Books sequence, dealing with analyses
of literary forms and structures. Students should determine the specific requirements of their particular degree programs with respect to humanities and literature.
PLANNING AN ENGINEERING PROGRAM
It is the responsibility of students to be sure they have fulfilled all the requirements, to file the intended date of graduation in the departmental office at the close of the third year, to fill out a Diploma Card at registration at the beginning of the last semester, and to keep the departmental adviser and the resident dean’s office informed of any changes in the students’ plans throughout the last year.
In order to become eligible for one of the bachelor’s degrees in the College of Engineering and Applied Science, a student, in addition to being in good standing in the University, must meet the following minimum requirements:
Courses. The satisfactory completion of the prescribed and elective work in any curriculum as determined by the appropriate department.
Hours. A minimum of 136 hours, of which the last 30 shall be earned after matriculation and admission as a degree student in the College of Engineering and Applied Science at CU is required for students in the four-year curricula; however, many students may need to present more than the minimum hours because of certain departmental requirements and because they may have enrolled in courses which do not carry full credit toward a degree. The hours required for students in the business and engineering program vary by departments; as a guide, 166 semester hours are considered a minimum, but most students follow programs that bring the total above this figure.
Grade Average. A minimum grade-point average of 2.0 (C) for all courses attempted and (separately computed) for all required courses. A department may require a C average or a minimum grade of C in all major courses.
Faculty Recommendation. The recommendation of the faculty of the department offering the degree and the recommendation of the faculty of the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
Incompletes and Correspondence Courses. It is the student’s responsibility to insure that all incompletes and correspondence courses are officially completed before the tenth week of the student’s final semester in school.
Simultaneous Conferring of Degrees. For business and engineering students, the degree B.S. in business and the degree B.S. in engineering must be conferred at the same commencement.
Commencement Exercises. Commencement exercises are held in May. Students finishing in December and August may attend commencement the following May or receive diplomas by mail.
UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES
In addition to the standard four-year degree programs previously listed, the College is involved in the following programs.


College of Engineering and Applied Science / 59
Business and Engineering Curricula
Undergraduates in the College of Engineering and Applied Science with career interests in administration may complete all of the requirements for both a B.S. degree in engineering and a B.S. degree in business by extending their study programs to five years, including one or two summer terms. The 48 semester credits required in the College of Business and Administration may be started in the second, third, or fourth year, depending upon the curriculum plan for the particular field of engineering in which the student is enrolled.
Students taking these undergraduate programs are not required to submit formal application for admission to the College of Business. However, before enrolling in any business courses, the student must see an adviser and have approval from the College of Business.
Requirements for the undergraduate business degree and engineering degree must be completed concurrently. At least a 2.0 grade average must be earned in all courses undertaken in the College of Business. Not fewer than 30 semester credits in business courses must be earned to establish residency credit. Courses offered by the College of Business may be used in lieu of electives required for undergraduate engineering degrees, subject to the approval of the individual department.
It is also possible for qualified graduates (GPA: 3.0 or better) to complete the requirements for a master’s degree in business within one year after receiving the baccalaureate degree in engineering. Before deciding upon the business option, a student should carefully consider, in consultation with departmental advisers, the relative advantages of the combined B.S. business-engineering curricula, the degree program of the Graduate School of Business Administration, and the M.S. degree program in the student’s own engineering discipline.
The business requirements for this program are as follows:
Courses Semester Hours
Econ. 201 and 202. Principles of Economics.......................6
(Should be completed during the student's sophomore year or junior year.)
Acct. 200. Introduction to Financial Accounting..................3

B.Ad. 410. Business and Government; or B.Ad. 411.
Business and Society........................................... 3
B.Ad. 450. Cases and Concepts in Business Policy...................3
Courses in an area of emphasis in one of the following fields:
accounting, finance, information systems, international business, marketing, minerals land management, organization management, personnel-human resources management, production and operations management, public agency administration, real estate, small business management, or transportation and distribution management. All course work in the area of emphasis must be taken in the University
of Colorado College of Business and Administration............. 12
Total 48
The student should note that for some courses, and for some areas of emphasis, there are prerequisites which
must be met. Since some of the courses may be taken as engineering electives, it is possible to obtain the two degrees in as few as 166 semester hours; however, most students will require more.
Joint Engineering Degrees
A student may obtain two engineering degrees by meeting the requirements and, by petition, obtaining the approval of both departments concerned. Thirty hours of elective or required subjects in addition to the largest minimum number required by either of the two departments must be completed.
Premedicine Option
A professional school in a field such as medicine requires a student to have a college education prior to pursuing its professional courses. In practically all cases, medical students are university graduates, although occasionally a student may enter medical school after three years of university training. A student can prepare for medical school either in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences or in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. The desirability of obtaining an engineering education prior to undertaking a study of medicine is increasing continually, as medicine itself is evolving. A great deal of additional equipment, most of it electronic, is being developed to assist the medical practitioner in treatment of patients. Bio-engineering, engineering systems analysis, probability, and communication theory are highly applicable to medical problems. Improved communication techniques also are allowing the storage and retrieval of information not previously available to the medical doctor. An advanced knowledge of basic mathematics and computing techniques, along with increased understanding of physical chemistry, are improving the scientific base upon which medical knowledge rests. It is therefore desirable that the medical practitioner and researcher in the future be well equipped with the tools which engineering can offer.
To provide at least a minimum of the necessary knowledge, the additional courses listed below are prescribed and must be completed with superior grades. General overall requirements for entry into most medical schools are given. Students can meet these requirements by careful substitution of electives in the engineering curriculum. In some cases where additional hours may be required, interested students should consult with the engineering department chairman.
General chemistry (103-106)........ 2 sem. (8-10 sem. hrs.)
Organic chemistry (341, 342, 343,
344)............................ 2 sem. (8-10 sem. hrs.)
General biology (205-206)............. 2 sem. (8 sem. hrs.)
English composition................... 1 sem. (3 sem. hrs.)
To prepare for a career in medicine in the College of Engineering and Applied Science, it is strongly recommended that the student follow a full four-year college program (with the equivalent of at least 136 semester hours) and earn a B.S. degree.
The Admissions Committee of the University of Colorado School of Medicine welcomes inquiries and visits from prospective students, particularly at the time of their first interest in medicine as their chosen profession.


60 / University of Colorado at Denver
Students desiring to enter a premedical program should consult the representative of the department involved. At UCD, premedical advising is available through the Health Careers Advisory Committee, Science Bldg., Room 218.
GRADUATE STUDY IN ENGINEERING
The College of Engineering and Applied Science at UCD offers graduate programs in civil engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and applied mathematics.
For information regarding courses and requirements leading to the degrees Master of Engineering, Master of Environmental Science, Master of Science or to the Ph.D. degree, see the Graduate School section of this bulletin.
Education for Employed Professional Engineers
Continuing education for employed engineers grows more important each year. Therefore, the College puts great emphasis upon making graduate courses available through night and televised courses. The Master of Engineering degree permits graduate students more flexibility in defining specialized interdisciplinary fields that meet their professional needs. This degree has standards fully equivalent to those of the Master of Science degree.
In addition to credit course work, the College works jointly with the Division of Continuing Education to offer noncredit courses of interest to practicing engineers.
Concurrent B.S. and M.S. Degree Program in Engineering
Students who plan to continue in the Graduate School after completing the requirements for the B.S. degree may apply for admission to the concurrent degree program through their department early in the second semester of their junior year (after completion of at least 84 semester hours). Requirements are the same as for the two degrees taken separately: 136 credit hours for the B.S. degree and 30 credit hours for the M.S. degree. Social-humanistic requirements must be completed within the first 136 credit hours. A 3.0 grade-point average for all work attempted through the first six semesters (at least 96 credit hours) and written recommendations from at least two major-field faculty members are required.
The purpose of the concurrent degree program is to allow the student, who qualifies for graduate study and expects to continue for an advanced degree, to plan his graduate program from the beginning of the senior year rather than from the first year of graduate study. The student can then reach the degree of proficiency required to begin research at an earlier time, and can make better and fuller use of courses offered only in alternate years.
Students will be assigned faculty advisers to help them develop the program best suited to their particular interests. Those in the program will be encouraged to pursue independent study on research problems or in areas of specialization where no formal courses are offered. A liberal substitution policy will be followed for courses normally required in the last year of the undergraduate curriculum.
The program selected must be planned so that the student may qualify for a B.S. degree after completing the credit-hour requirements for the degree if the student so elects, or if the student’s grade-point average falls below the 3.0 required to remain in the program. In this case, all hours completed with a passing grade while in the program will count toward fulfilling the normal requirements for the B.S. degree. There will be no credit given toward a graduate degree for courses applied to the B.S. degree requirements; however, students are still eligible to apply for admission to the Graduate School under the rules set forth in the Graduate School section of this bulletin. Normally, however, the student will apply for admission to the Graduate School when at least 130 of the 136 credit hours required for the B.S. degree have been completed, and will be awarded the B.S. and M.S. degrees simultaneously upon meeting the requirements set forth for the concurrent degree program.
Graduate Work in Business
Undergraduates in engineering who intend to pursue graduate study in business may complete some of the business background requirements as electives in their undergraduate programs. Seniors in engineering who have such intentions and appear likely to qualify for admission to graduate study in business may be permitted to register for any of the graduate fundamentals courses which are designed to provide qualified students with needed background preparation in business. Students should see an adviser from the College of Business for approval.
AEROSPACE ENGINEERING SCIENCES
Admission to this program must be approved by the department at the Boulder campus.
The primary objective of the aerospace engineering sciences curriculum is to provide sound general training in subjects fundamental to the practice of and research in this branch of engineering sciences. The major part of the first three years is devoted to the study of mathematics, physics, mechanics, chemistry, and the humanities. The fourth year is devoted to the professional courses in the fields of physics of fluids (fluid dynamics); propulsion and energy conversion; flight dynamics, control, and guidance; space system analysis; materials and structural mechanics; space environment; and bioengineering.
The minimum total number of semester hours for the B.S. degree is 136 and business courses may not be substituted for technical electives in the aerospace curriculum.
The complete aerospace engineering sciences program is not available at UCD. Therefore, students wishing to complete this program must apply to the University of Colorado at Boulder. The complete curriculum, degree requirements, and descriptions of courses may be found in the University of Colorado at Boulder Catalog.

APPLIED MATHEMATICS
Charles I. Sherrill III, Coordinator
The Division of Natural and Physical Sciences in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers all courses in mathematics, both required and elective, for undergraduate and graduate students in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Three curricula leading to the degree B.S. (A.Math.) are offered. In Option I, the student takes a minor in a specific engineering department, satisfying an adviser from that department. In Option II, the student takes distributed course work in engineering departments, including a solid grounding in mechanics, electronics, and materials. (This option is intended for the above-average student.) Option III is a joint mathematics-computer science program. Regardless of the option chosen, each student is expected to complete a minimum of 45 semester hours of course work in mathematics beginning with Math. 140.
Modern industrial and scientific research is so dependent on advanced mathematical concepts that applied mathematicians are needed today by almost all concerns which are engaged in such research.
The undergraduate curriculum is designed to give training in mathematics and in engineering and science. The use of numerical methods and electronic computers is included.
Nontechnical electives should be broadening and have cultural value. Courses in the humanities and the social sciences are required. Students interested in research should take a foreign language as early as possible. Beginning language courses are normally considered technical electives but may count toward the social-humanistic electives. Some 300- and 400-level language courses may be counted. Under all circumstances, a student must plan a complete program and obtain the approval of a departmental adviser at the beginning of the sophomore year.
The B.S. degree in applied mathematics requires the completion of a minimum of 136 credit hours of course work with an average grade of C or better (a 2.0 grade-point average) and a grade of C or better in all mathematics courses. Course work in the social-humanistic elective area must be approved by the student’s adviser.

ARCHITECTURAL ENGINEERING
John R. Mays, Coordinator
Admission to this program must be approved by the department at the Boulder campus.
The architectural engineering curriculum is administered at the Boulder campus by the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering of the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Its purpose is to
prepare a student for a career in the building industry and for graduate-level research on building-related topics. The building industry is the largest single industry in the United States and includes many diverse skills and fields of knowledge.
This course of study fulfills the academic requirements for registration as a professional engineer.
The architectural engineering curriculum is recommended for those wishing to specialize (within the building industry) in engineering design, construction and contracting, or sales engineering. The architectural engineering student may select any of three areas of specialization offered: construction engineering, environmental engineering, or structural engineering.
Specialization in construction is for students planning a career in contracting and building construction. This program involves courses in construction management, planning and scheduling techniques, cost accounting, estimating and pricing, building materials, and construction methods.
Students interested in environmental engineering may concentrate their efforts in the fields of illumination and electrical systems design, heating-ventilating-air conditioning systems design, sanitation and water supply, or acoustics.
The third area of specialization is for those interested in the design of structural systems for buildings. Courses available are structural analysis; statically indeterminate structures; and steel, concrete, and timber design.
The five-year course leading to a B.S. degree in architectural engineering and a B.S. degree in business offers opportunity to complement the architectural engineering background with study in one of the major areas of business administration, such as personnel and business management, marketing, and finance.
Approximately one-half of the architectural engineering program is available at UCD under the Department of Civil and Urban Engineering. Students wishing to complete the architectural engineering program must apply to the University of Colorado at Boulder. The complete curriculum and descriptions of courses may be found in the University of Colorado at Boulder Catalog.

CHEMICAL ENGINEERING
David W. Hubly, Coordinator
Admission to this program must be approved by the department at Boulder.
Meeting the crisis in oil and energy, cleaning up the water and air, producing new and better materials to replace those that are limited or scarce—these are jobs in which one will find the chemical engineer.
Chemical plants (including refineries and gasification plants) convert natural resources into industrial and consumer products. Among their products are many that often are not identified with chemical engineering—oils, metals, glass, plastic, rubber, paints, soaps and detergents, foods, beverages, synthetic and natural fibers, nuclear and exotic fuels, medicines, and many others.
The department, located at the Boulder campus, is very much interested in research directed toward ecologically sound development of chemical processes. It is also working hard on energy problems and is stressing problems of energy conversion in its instructional program.
Many essentials of life originate in chemical engineering. Recycling of wastes and resources is not a new idea in chemical engineering but a long-standing principle. Since the earth now is perceived as a self-renewing system, intelligent generalization of the recycle theory to the entire cycle of natural resources is a challenge and opportunity for chemical engineers. Cleaning up pollution from chemical plants and from other sources is largely a chemical engineering problem. The chemical engineer efficiently uses and conserves natural resources to create valuable end products and to preserve environmental values.
Thus, chemical engineering continually changes and progresses. The Department of Chemical Engineering at the Boulder campus therefore helps students to prepare to be immediately valuable to industry and eventually to lead future developments in industry and research. Whether they plan to go into industry or on to graduate work, students are urged to watch, understand, and enjoy the sparkle and interplay of new ideas and new technologies.
The complete chemical engineering program is not available at UCD. However, for new first-year students, approximately one-half of the program is available. Students wishing to complete this program should apply to the University of Colorado at Boulder. Also, students must arrange to take Ch.E. 212 (Chemical Engineering Material and Energy Balances) concurrently in Boulder during the spring semester of their sophomore year or it will delay graduation by a year. The complete curriculum, degree requirements, and descriptions of courses may be found in the University of Colorado at Boulder Catalog. Students interested in chemical engineering but who are unable to consider full-time, day-time study in Boulder should discuss alternative programs with the coordinator.

CIVIL AND URBAN ENGINEERING
William C. Hughes, Chairman
Civil engineering is generally the broadest field of engineering studied in American universities today. Civil engineering offers an interesting and highly challenging career to the student interested in the design and construction of buildings, bridges, dams, aqueducts, and other structures; in transportation systems including highways, canals, pipe lines, airports, rapid transit lines, railroads, and harbor facilities; in the transmission of water and control of rivers; in the development of water resources for urban use, industry, and land reclamation; in the control of water quality through water purification and proper waste treatment; in the construction industry; and in general in the rapidly expanding problems concerned with mankind’s physical environment and the growth of cities. Furthermore, students educated in civil engineering frequently find rewarding employment in other fields: for example, in aerospace structures, electric power generation, city planning, the process industries, industrial engineering, business management and law or medicine (after appropriate education in law or medical school). The breadth of the civil and urban engineering undergraduate program provides an excellent educational background for many fields of endeavor.
The curriculum is designed to give the student a broad knowledge of the basic engineering sciences of chemistry, mathematics (including differential equations), physics, mechanics (including fluid mechanics and soil mechanics), electrical circuits, and thermodynamics. In addition, it includes a minimum of 24 semester hours in social-humanistic studies.
Specialized training is achieved through certain required courses, followed by more advanced civil engineering electives. By proper selection of these electives the senior student who wishes to specialize may emphasize any of the four major areas of civil engineering: structures, water resources, transportation, or geotechnical engineering. To be awarded the B.S. degree, a student must have at least a 2.0 average in all C.E. courses applied to the degree.
A five-year program has been arranged for students who wish to pursue a B.S. degree in civil engineering and a B.S. degree in business.
A student interested in a premedical option should consult with an adviser and the department chairman at the earliest possible time in order to make proper plans for an acceptable program. See Premedical Option.

ELECTRICAL AND COMPUTER ENGINEERING
William D. Murray, Chairman
The professional possibilities in electrical engineering include teaching and research in a university; research and development of new electrical or electronic devices, instruments, or products; production and quality-control of electrical products for private industry or government; design or operations in the electrical power industry; and sales or management for a private firm or branch of government.
The electrical engineering course of study at UCD begins with principles of physics, chemistry, and mathematics and follows with an early, intensive training in the theory and laboratory application of electrical circuits, electromagnetic and transmission theory, electrical machines and transformers, heat, and mechanics. Many students find an opportunity to put their knowledge to work with jobs in industry or research projects being conducted at the University. Throughout the entire course of study, they reinforce their understanding of the theory in well-equipped laboratories.
Students are encouraged to develop interests outside of their electrical engineering specialty, thus providing themselves with a well-rounded background and a sense of awareness and responsibility for their later role in society. They are urged to attend meetings of their student professional society, where practicing engineers from many
engineering specialties speak of their experiences.
The areas of specialization that electrical engineering students may enter upon graduation are so numerous it is impossible for the undergraduate training to cover them in detail. Intense specialization may be left to possible additional training graduates may receive when they assume positions with industrial firms, or acquired by specialization in a research field through graduate work beyond the bachelor’s degree. Students who have earned a B average or better in their undergraduate work and who have elected courses in their senior year that strengthen particularly their mathematical background may decide to undertake graduate study. The curriculum in electrical engineering is designed to make it possible for the graduating senior with high scholarship to finish a master’s degree in electrical engineering in about one additional full year of work at any of the nation’s major universities.
Electrical Engineering Curriculum
In the electrical engineering curriculum the student has considerable freedom in the senior electives. The student may select these electives to provide a good foundation in several of the seven electrical engineering areas listed: communications, digital, electronics, fields, materials, power, and systems. Some of these electives may be courses in other branches of engineering or in other colleges. Those students primarily interested in taking courses in the digital computer area may do so in this curriculum or in the joint electrical engineering and computer science degree option discussed below. To be awarded the B.S. degree, a student must have at least a 2.0 average in all E.E. and C.S. courses applied to the degree.
Business Option
Students wishing to complete a B.S. degree in electrical engineering and a B.S. degree in business should not start the business program until their fourth year, with the exception of electing Econ. 201 and 202 for two of their social-humanistic electives. Students with a B average may wish to consider obtaining a master’s degree in business administration. For both of these programs, students should refer to the College of Engineering and Applied Science introductory section of this bulletin.
Premedical Option
A program has been developed which permits the student to satisfy the entrance requirements for medical school, such as those of the University of Colorado, while earning a B.S. in electrical engineering.
Medical schools typically require that applicants have * completed two semesters of general chemistry, two semesters of organic chemistry, and two semesters of general biology, all with laboratories. A course in English composition is recommended.
More specific information on medical school requirements may be obtained at the office of the Health Careers Advisory Committee at UCD.
Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
The joint degree in electrical engineering and computer science is a comprehensive program covering both hardware


66 / University of Colorado at Denver
and software aspects of computer system design. The program leads to a B.S. (E.E. and C.S.) and can be a base for further study toward either an M.S. in computer science or an M.S. in electrical engineering.
A student need not make a decision to enter this program until the junior year. The details of the program are listed in the section following the electrical engineering curriculum. Academic requirements are the same as those for the B.S. (E.E.). Should students leave the program in favor of returning to the electrical engineering curriculum, they will need to satisfy the departmental requirements of mechanics and E.E. 354, which have been waived in the electrical engineering computer option curriculum. To be awarded the B.S. (E.E. and C.S.), a student must achieve at least a 2.0 GPA in all E.E. and C.S. courses applied to the degree.

Notes for B.S. (Electrical Engineering)
Students should refer to the section on Academic Policies of the College of Engineering and Applied Science in this bulletin. In addition to planning for sequences of courses based on prerequisites, students should plan to complete sophomore level courses before taking junior level courses and should have completed their junior level E.E. courses before starting their 400-level E.E. electives.
1. Of the 24 hours of required social-humanistic electives, a student must have a minimum of 6 hours in literature and a minimum of 6 hours in social sciences. At least two courses must be upper division courses. Independent study is allowed for no more than one social-humanistic elective course. See the section describing the Social-Humanistic Content of the Engineering Curriculum in the College of Engineering and Applied Science introductory section of this bulletin.
2. Or Ch.E. 210.
3. The mechanics requirement may be satisfied by the 3-hour course, C.E. 313, or the 6-hour sequence of C.E. 212 and C.E. 311. Students who first take E.E. 313 may, with permission, take only C.E. 311.
4. The purpose of these electives is to allow the student to develop some breadth in electrical engineering as well as to develop some depth in areas in which he/she is most likely to concentrate after graduation. Usually these courses will be taken in electrical engineering, mathematics, and physics at the 300, 400, or 500 levels. In all cases the student needs the approval of the undergraduate adviser.
Electrical engineering courses at the 400 and 500 levels are separated into tbe following seven areas: communications (C), digital (D), electronics (E), fields (F), materials (M), power (P), and systems (S). Seniors are free to elect courses from any of these areas, but in order to insure a minimum breadth of studies, every student's program must include 9 semester hours of electrical engineering theory courses in at least three areas and a minimum of three laboratory courses in three areas. These distribution requirements could be met through Independent Study, E.E. 940 (1-3) or E.E. 950 (1-3), only if the subject matter studied is actually in the appropriate area. Independent study may be used only once to satisfy part of the distribution requirements.
A 3-hour upper division course in physics must be included among the technical electives.
The student who has good grades and is interested in graduate work should take additional mathematics. Some preliminary consulting with a department graduate adviser is desirable.

Notes for B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
Students should refer to the section on Academic Policies of the College of Engineering and Applied Science in this bulletin. In planning their programs, students should consider prerequisite and corequisite requirements of courses and should plan to complete courses at the junior level before taking senior E.E. or C.S. electives.
1. Of the 24 hours of social-humanistic electives a student must have a minimum of 6 hours in literature and a minimum of 6 hours in social sciences. At least two courses must be upper divsion courses. Independent study is allowed for no more than one social-humanistic elective course. See the section describing the Social-Humanistic Content of the Engineering Curriculum in the College of Engineering and Applied Science introductory section of this bulletin.

E.E./C.S. majors are advised to take E.E. 551 or E.E. 559 to obtain additional depth in computers. A course in abstract mathematics (Math. 300) or finite mathematics (Math. 413) is recommended as an additional elective.
The student who has good grades and is interested in graduate work should take additional mathematics. Some preliminary consulting with a departmental graduate adviser is desirable.
4. E.E. 455, Computer Techniques in Engineering, may be substituted.
ENGINEERING PHYSICS
William R. Simmons, Coordinator
Admission to this program must be approved by the department at the Boulder campus.
The engineering physics curriculum gives students a thorough foundation in the physical principles underlying most of engineering. The large number of engineering electives which may be incorporated in the curriculum makes it possible for students to prepare themselves for professional work or graduate school in a wide variety of fields. Because the program is particularly flexible, the student should be aware that proper preparation for his/ her professional field will require careful selection of engineering electives. The student is urged to prepare, in consultation with the departmental coordinator, a coherent plan of courses to meet his/her professional objectives.
During the freshman and sophomore years, the student must attain a thorough training in mathematics and a grounding in fundamental methods and principles of the physical sciences.
During the junior and senior years the work in physics is amplified to provide a comprehensive knowledge of the various branches of physics such as nuclear physics, atomic physics, electronics, thermodynamics, mechanics, electricity, and magnetism. Individual initiative and resourcefulness are stressed. For purposes of Federal Civil Service requirements this degree is an engineering degree from an accredited College of Engineering. Students who plan to


68 / University of Colorado at Denver
become registered professional engineers should check the requirements for registration in their state before choosing their engineering electives.
It is recommended that students preparing for Graduate School also prepare for its foreign language requirement as part of their undergraduate curriculum.
Applied Physics Option
It is also possible to earn the degree Bachelor of Science (Engineering Physics) with an applied physics option. This option differs from the regular engineering physics degree primarily in that fewer advanced theoretical physics courses are required and in their place a selection of applied science courses is required. This option should not be selected by students intending to pursue graduate study in physics, but it is appropriate for students intending to pursue graduate work or employment in related fields such as geophysics, environmental science, oceanography, nuclear engineering, medicine, and law. Students intending to pursue this option should consult the coordinator by the beginning of their junior year regarding the electives which they wish to propose. The 24 hours of electives in pure or applied natural science must be approved by the engineering physics advising committee, which is located on the Boulder campus. The committee will consider the proposed courses relative to the student’s stated educational and/or professional objectives. At least 30 semester hours of credit must be earned after the student’s proposed program is approved.

MECHANICAL ENGINEERING
Ralph C. Koeller, Chairman
The mechanical engineering curriculum begins with a strong emphasis on mathematics, physics, and chemistry. It continues with a concentration in engineering sciences such as solid and fluid mechanics; thermodynamics, heat and mass transport; materials; and systems analysis and control. It concludes with laboratory and design courses which demonstrate the ways in which scientific knowledge is applied in the design and development of useful devices and processes.
The mechanical engineering program may be roughly subdivided into two-year groupings. In the first two years, the program emphasizes the fundamentals of those engineering sciences that are essential for an understanding of most branches of professional engineering. In the last two years of the program, the department provides technical electives for professional concentrations in the following areas:
Thermodynamics Heat transfer Fluid mechanics Solid mechanics Electromechanical systems
Design
Power
Dynamics and controls Materials science Thermomechanical systems
All of the required courses for mechanical engineering are offered at UCD.

Graduate School
John G. Weihaupt, Associate Academic Vice Chancellor, and Resident Dean of the Graduate School
INFORMATION ABOUT THE SCHOOL
The Graduate School is a University-wide body which authorizes programs within its constituent colleges and schools. At UCD, Business and Administration (except the M.B.A. Executive program), Education, Engineering, Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Music are colleges or schools whose graduate programs are offered through the Graduate School. In concept, there is a single Graduate School regardless of campus. In practice, most master’s-level programs are specific to the campus where the student is admitted, insofar as particular options and advisers are concerned.
Doctoral-level programs in a discipline are viewed as the responsibility of the entire University community of that discipline. At the present time all Ph.D. programs are coordinated through the corresponding Boulder department. However, in a number of disciplines most or all course work for the Ph.D. can be completed at Denver and the research adviser may be a member of the UCD faculty. Some departments in which this is the case are communication and theatre, electrical engineering, and civil engineering. In other disciplines, a significant portion of the course work required for the Ph.D. degree may be taken at UCD. Persons interested in pursuing doctoral-level work should consult with the appropriate discipline graduate adviser.
Anyone wishing further information not given in this bulletin should contact the Resident Dean of the Graduate School, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202.

72 / University of Colorado at Denver
Facilities for Graduate Study and Research at UCD
Facilities for research in many fields are available at UCD as well as specialized institutes, seminars, and meetings of national standing.
UCD Computing Services
Computing Services at the University of Colorado at Denver supports the instructional and research needs of the University, using both local and remote services. Through a campus-wide network, students, faculty and staff have both batch and timesharing access to UCD’s PRIME 750 minicomputer, a Control Data Corporation Cyber 720, or a Digital Equipment Corporation VAX 11/780. The Cyber and VAX machines are operated by the University Computing Center in Boulder. The PRIME 750 is operated by Computing Services at UCD and is located in the East Classroom Building.
Software available includes many programming languages such as FORTRAN, BASIC, PASCAL and COBOL, as well as a library of mathematical and statistical packages and other applications programs. Computing assistants and professional programmers and analysts employed by the center are available to assist members of the UCD community in meeting their computing needs.
The Graduate Student at UCD
Approximately 2,186 students are enrolled in graduate programs at UCD each fall and spring semester, and an additional 2,041 special students take graduate courses. Of these, approximately 54 percent are part-time students.
Faculty
The faculty operating in these programs is mainly housed at UCD, although resources of other University of Colorado campuses are used.
Financial Aid for Graduate Study
SCHOLARSHIPS AND FELLOWSHIPS
The University of Colorado administers various forms of financial aid for graduate students: fellowships, scholarships, and a number of awards from outside agencies.
The Graduate School offers two types of assistance: Colorado Doctoral Fellowships and Colorado Graduate Grants.
Special fellowships and scholarships also are available for study in certain departments. Colorado Graduate Grants are available to students who are residents of the State of Colorado and can show demonstrated need. For details contact the Graduate School office.
Applications for fellowships, scholarships, and grants are due in the department before the announced department deadline. Fellowship awards are announced about March 15; Colorado Graduate Grant awards are announced each semester for the following semester.
GRADUATE STUDENT TEACHING APPOINTMENTS
Many departments employ graduate students as part-time instructors or teaching assistants. The instructorship is reserved for those advanced graduate students already possessing an appropriate M.A. degree who may be
independently responsible for the conduct of a section or course. Payment for these teaching appointments in 1982-83 was: one-half time instructor, $7,524 for the academic year; one-half time teaching assistant, $6,020 for the academic year.
A half-time appointment for an instructor is considered to be equal to 6 class contact hours; a half-time teaching assistant is appointed for 20 hours per week. Compensation is based on the number of appointment hours per week. Nonresident students employed as assistants may or may not be eligible for the nonresident tuition differential stipend for their first-year appointment as an assistant only. Exceptions extending beyond the first year must be approved in advance by the respective dean. Teaching assistants and instructors must be enrolled students in good standing for the full period of their appointment.
RESEARCH ASSISTANTSHIPS
Research activities provide opportunities for graduate students to obtain part-time work as research assistants in many departments. General fund research assistantships are subject to the one-year rule on eligibility for waiver of the nonresident tuition differential. Nonresident students who are appointed as research assistants in nongeneral fund accounts may or may not be eligible for resident tuition rates. Assistants must be enrolled students.
LOAN FUNDS
Graduate students wishing to apply for long-term loans through the National Direct Student Loan Program and for part-time jobs through the college work-study program should submit an Application for Financial Aid to the Office of Financial Aid by March 1. This office also provides short-term loan assistance to students who have completed one or more semesters in residence. Short-term loans are designed to supplement inadequate personal funds and to provide for emergencies. Applicants should go directly to the Office of Financial Aid.
EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES
The University maintains an employment service in the Office of Financial Aid to help students obtain part-time work either through conventional employment or through the college work-study program.
Students employed by the University are hired solely on the basis of merit and fitness, a policy which avoids favor or discrimination because of race, color, creed, sex, age, handicap, or national origin. Students are also referred to prospective employers in accordance with this policy.
INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION
The Office of International Education expedites the exchange of students and faculty, entertains foreign visitors, promotes special relationships with foreign universities, and acts as adviser for Fulbright and other scholarships.
The office also arranges study abroad programs. Students remain enrolled at the University of Colorado while taking regular courses in the foreign universities. A B average with the equivalent of two years of college-level work in the appropriate language is required. There are also occasional summer programs offering academic credit.
Peace Corps information may be obtained from the


Graduate School / 73
Office of International Education.
For additional information contact the Office of International Education, Boulder campus, 492-7741.
REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION General Requirements
Students may be admitted to the Graduate School in either of the two categories described below.
Admission to the Graduate School is not admission to candidacy for an advanced degree. A student who wishes to become a candidate for a degree must make special application at the time and in the manner prescribed by the requirements for the degree sought.
A student who is granted admission must reflect in a moral and ethical sense a personal background acceptable to the University.
The University reserves the right to deny admission to applicants whose total credentials reflect an inability to assume those obligations of performance and behavior deemed essential by the University and relevant to any of its lawful missions, processes, and functions as an educational institution.
REGULAR DEGREE STUDENTS
Qualified students are admitted to regular degree status by the appropriate department. In addition to departmental approval, an applicant for admission as a regular degree student must:
1. Hold a baccalaureate degree from a college or university of recognized standing, or have done work equivalent to that required for such a degree and equivalent to the degree given at this University.
2. Show promise of ability to pursue advanced study and research, as judged by his or her previous scholastic record.
3. Have had adequate preparation to enter upon graduate study in the field .chosen.
4. Have at least a 2.75 undergraduate grade-point average on all work taken.
5. Meet additional requirements for admission as established by major departments.
Regular degree students must maintain at least a 3.0 grade-point average each semester or summer term on all work taken, whether it is to be applied toward the advanced degree intended or not. Students who fail to maintain this standard of performance will be subject to suspension from the Graduate School.
Pass/Fail Grades. In order to permit a meaningful evaluation of an applicant’s scholastic record, not more than 10 percent of those credit hours that are relevant to the intended field of graduate study shall have been earned with pass/fail grades, nor more than 20 percent overall. Applicants whose academic record contains a larger percentage of pass/fail credits must submit suitable additional evidence that they possess the required scholastic ability. If the applicant does not submit satisfactory additional evidence, he or she can be admitted only as a provisional student.
PROVISIONAL DEGREE STUDENTS
Applicants who do not meet the requirements for admission as regular degree students may be admitted as provisional degree students upon the recommendation of the major department. With the concurrence of the dean of the Graduate School, a department may admit provisional students for a probationary term, which may not normally exceed one academic year. At the end of the probationary period, provisional degree students must either be admitted to regular degree status or be dropped from the graduate program.
Credit earned by persons in provisional degree status may count toward a degree at this University.
Provisional degree students are required to maintain a
3.0 grade-point average or higher, according to the terms of their provisional admission, each semester or summer term on all work taken, whether or not it is to be applied toward the advanced degree sought. Students who fail to maintain such a standard of performance, will be subject to suspension from the Graduate School.
Note: All provisional applicants must take the Graduate Record Examination and submit scores as part of the application.
Application Procedures
Graduate students who expect to study at UCD should contact the UCD Graduate School office concerning procedures for forwarding completed applications.
An applicant for admission must present a completed Application Form (Parts I and II), which may be obtained from the UCD Graduate School office, and two official transcripts from each university attended. The application must be accompanied by a nonrefundable application fee of $20 (check of money order) when the application is submitted. No application will be processed unless this fee is paid. Many departments require scores from the Graduate Record Examination, and most departments require three or four letters of recommendation.
When a prospective degree student applies for admission, the chairman of each department or a committee named for the purpose shall decide whether the applicant shall be admitted and shall make that decision known to the Office of Admissions and Records, which will inform the student. Persons not wishing to work toward an advanced degree are referred to as special students (below).
A completed application must be in the office of the major department at least 60 days prior to the term for which admission is sought or earlier as may be required by the major department.
Students who wish to apply for a graduate student award for the academic year 1983-84, e.g., fellowship, scholarship, assistantship, etc., must file a completed application with the department before the announced departmental deadline (see previous section on financial aid).
READMISSION OF FORMER AND SUSPENDED STUDENTS
Students who were previously admitted to a graduate degree program but who did not complete that degree and who have not been continuously registered at the University must:


14 / University of Colorado at Denver
1. Clarify their status with the department to determine their eligibility to return and pursue the same degree.
2. After receiving departmental approval, as indicated above, submit a former student application to the Office of Admissions before deadlines are passed for the term in which they expect to return to the University. Application deadlines are available from the department.
In some instances, students who have left the degree program to which they were formerly admitted must submit a new graduate application form and be reconsidered for admission by the department concerned.
Former students who wish to change from undergraduate to graduate status or from one major to another must complete the appropriate forms at the time they apply for readmission.
Students transferring from one campus to another must apply and be accepted to the new campus.
A student admitted to the Graduate School for the master’s program must reapply for admission for the doctoral program.
A suspended student is eligible to apply for readmission after one year. Approval or rejection of this application rests jointly with the student’s major department and the dean. In case of lack of agreement between the department and the dean or in case of appeal by the student, the final decision will be made by the Executive Committee.
FOREIGN APPLICANTS
Prospective foreign students should have completed applications on file in the Graduate School office prior to March 15 for summer and fall and August 1 for the spring semester. Application packet should include $50 fee, TOEFL scores, financial documentation, official English translation of all school records, and other documents as noted in the previous section on Application Procedures.
SENIORS IN THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO
A senior in this University who has satisfied the undergraduate residence requirements and who needs not more than 6 semester hours of advanced subjects and 12 credit points to meet his/her requirements for a bachelor’s degree, may be admitted to the Graduate School by special permission of the resident dean.
GRADUATE RECORD EXAMINATIONS
At the option of any department, the Graduate Record Examination may be required of applicants for assistant-ships, or of any student before his or her status is determined.
Students who are applying for the fall of 1984 take the GRE no later than the December testing date so that their scores will be available to the graduate awards selection committee. Four to six weeks should be allowed for GRE scores to be received by an institution.
Information regarding these examinations may be obtained from the Graduate School office or the UCD Testing Office, or from the Educational Testing Service, Box 1502, Berkeley, California 94701, or Box 955, Princeton, New Jersey 08540.
OTHER GRADUATE QUALIFYING EXAMINATIONS
Students entering professional schools and special programs may obtain information at the Student Testing
Office, located in the Central Classroom Building, on the following examinations: Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT), Miller Analogies Test (MAT), Dopplet, and Law School Admissions Test (LSAT).
SPECIAL STUDENTS
A student not wishing to earn an advanced degree from the University of Colorado should apply to the Office of Admissions and Records, UCD, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202, or to the Office of the Resident Dean of the Graduate School. Special students will be allowed to register only on the campus to which they have been admitted.
Special students desiring to pursue a graduate degree program at this University are encouraged to submit the complete graduate application and supporting credentials as soon as possible.
A department may recommend to the graduate dean the acceptance of as much as 8 hours of credit toward the requirements of a master’s degree for courses taken either as a student at another recognized graduate school, as a special student at the University, or both. In addition, the department may recommend to the graduate dean the acceptance of credit for courses taken as a special student at this University during the term for which the student applied for admission to the Graduate School, provided such admission date was delayed through no fault of the student. A grade of B or better must be obtained in any course work transferred in this manner.
REGISTRATION
Course Work and Examinations
On the regular registration days of each semester, students who have been admitted to the Graduate School and who expect to study in the Graduate School are required to complete appropriate registration procedures.
Students should register for classes the semester they are accepted into Graduate School. If unable to attend that semester they must notify the department which has accepted them and submit the necessary forms to the Office of Admissions and Records at UCD in order to attend the following semester.
Changes in Registration
A student who wishes to drop a course or take it for no credit should follow the drop/add standard procedure (see current Schedule of Courses). Note that after the tenth week of classes a graduate student may not drop, add, or change a course to no credit without presenting a letter to the resident dean of the Graduate School, UCD Administration Building, Room 706, stating the exceptional circumstances which justify the change. This letter, endorsed by the instructor of the course, must accompany the properly signed and completed drop/add card or nocredit option form.
Withdrawal
A graduate student who desires to withdraw from the University must apply to the resident dean of the Graduate School for permission to withdraw in good standing. A student who discontinues attendance in a course without


Graduate School / 75
official withdrawal will be marked as having failed the course.
Master’s Thesis or Report
Graduate students working toward master’s degrees, if they expect to present a thesis or M.Ed. report in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree, must register for thesis for a minimum of 4 semester hours or a maximum of 6 semester hours, or for M.Ed. report for 2 semester hours. The student may register for any specific number of hours in any semester of residence, but the total number of hours for all semesters must equal the number of credits the student expects to receive for the thesis or report. The final grade will be withheld until the thesis or report is completed. If the thesis or report is not completed at the end of the term in which the student is so registered, an in progress (IP) will be reported. (The student may not register again for any portion of thesis credit on which an IP grade has been submitted.)
Limitation of Registration
FULL LOAD
A graduate student will be considered to be carrying a full load during a regular semester for purposes of determining residence credit if the student is registered for not fewer than 5 semester hours in work numbered 500 or above, or at least 8 semester hours of other graduate work, or thesis.
A maximum of two-thirds of a semester of resident credit may be earned during the summer if a student registers for three semester hours of work in courses numbered 500 or above, 5 semester hours of other graduate work, or any number of thesis hours.
For the number of hours required for financial aid see Financial Aid at the University of Colorado at Denver in the General Information section of this bulletin. A graduate student may contact the resident dean’s office for information on the appeal process regarding the full load requirement for financial aid purposes.
MAXIMUM LOAD
No graduate student may receive graduate credit toward a degree for more than 15 hours in a regular semester.
The maximum number of graduate credits that may be applied toward a degree during a summer term at UCD is 10 hours per 10-week summer term.
TUITION AND FEES
The schedule of tuition and fees is given in the General Information section of this bulletin.
REQUIREMENTS FOR ADVANCED DEGREES
Quality of Graduate Work
Although the work for advanced degrees is specified partly in terms of credit hours, an advanced degree will not be conferred merely for the completion of a specified period of residence and the passing of a given number of
courses. Students should not expect to get from formal courses all the training, knowledge, and grasp of ideas necessary to meet the requirements for an advanced degree. They should work on their own initiative, reading widely and thoughtfully, reaching their own conclusions, and acquiring a sense of values, perspective, and proportion.
All studies offered for credit toward an advanced degree (except those in deficiencies) must be of graduate status.
A student is expected to maintain at least a B average in all work attempted in Graduate School.
For the Ph.D., a course mark below B is unsatisfactory and will not be counted toward fulfilling the minimum requirements for the degree.
A student who fails to do satisfactory work will be subject to suspension from the Graduate School by the dean with the approval of the major department.
Appeal may be made to the Executive Committee of the Graduate School. The committee’s decision shall be final. A suspended student is eligible to apply for readmission after one year. Approval or rejection of this application rests jointly with the student’s major department and the dean. In case of lack of agreement between the department and the dean or in case of appeal by the student, the final decision will be made by the Executive Committee.
Grading System
The standing of a student in work intended for an advanced degree is to be indicated by the marks A, B, and C.
A — Superior, 4 credit points for each credit hour.
B — Good, 3 credit points for each credit hour.
C — Pair, 2 credit points for each credit hour.
Work receiving the lowest passing grade, D, may not be counted toward a degree, nor may it be accepted for the removal of deficiencies. Marks below B are not accepted for the doctoral degree.
An IF or an IW grade may be given for incomplete work at the discretion of the instructor. For details, refer to the discussion of the uniform grading system. The grade of IP (in progress) will be given for continuing thesis work and will be valid until the thesis is completed.
Graduate students may register for undergraduate courses on a pass/fail basis; however, graduate credit will not be awarded, and such courses cannot be applied toward a graduate degree.
Repeating a Course
A graduate student who receives a grade of C, D, or F in a course may repeat that course once, upon written recommendation to the resident dean by the chairman of the student’s advisory committee and major department, provided the course has not previously been applied toward a degree.
In calculating a student’s grade-point average for Graduate School purposes, the grade for a repeated course will substitute for the old grade. Grades earned in courses taken as an undergraduate or as a special student, as well as grades earned in first and second year foreign language courses, will not be used in calculating the Graduate School grade-point average. However, all grades received will appear on the student’s transcript.


76 / University of Colorado at Denver
Change of Department or Major
A graduate student wishing to change department or major must submit a new Part I and Part II of the graduate application to the new department or school and request the former department to forward recommendations and credentials.
Use of English
A student who is noticeably deficient in the use and spelling of the English language may not obtain an advanced degree from the University of Colorado. The satisfaction of this requirement depends not so much upon the ability to pass formal tests, although these may be demanded, as it does upon the habitual use of good English in all oral and written work. Ability to use the language with precision and distinction should be cultivated as an attainment of major importance.
Each department will judge the qualifications of its advanced students in the use of English. Reports, examinations, and speech will be considered in estimating the candidate’s proficiency.
MASTER’S DEGREE
A student regularly admitted to the Graduate School and later accepted as a candidate for the degree Master of Arts, Master of Science, or other master’s degree will be recommended for the degree only after the following requirements have been met.
In general, only graduates of an approved institution who have a thorough preparation for their proposed field of study and who do graduate work of high quality are able to attain the degree with the minimum amount of work specified below. All studies offered toward the minimum requirement for the degree must be of graduate rank. Necessary additional work required to make up deficiencies or prerequisites may be partly or entirely undergraduate courses.
The requirements stated below are minimum requirements; additional conditions set by the department will be found in the announcements of separate departments. Any department may make further regulations not inconsistent with the general rules.
Minimum Requirement
The minimum requirement of graduate work for the degree Master of Arts or Master of Science may be fulfilled by following either Plan I or Plan II below.
Plan I: By presenting 24 semester hours of graduate work, including a thesis. At least 12 semester hours of this work must be at the 500 level or above.
Plan II: By presenting 30 semester hours of graduate work, without a thesis. At least 16 semester hours of this work must be at the 500 level or above.
Plan II does not represent a free option for the student. A candidate for the master’s degree may be allowed to select Plan II only on the recommendation of the department concerned.
Graduate Credit
Graduate credit is given for courses which are listed at the 500 level or above and which are offered by those
colleges or schools that are members of the Graduate School, or which have otherwise been approved by the dean of the Graduate School. No assurance can be given that work taken by a student will count toward a higher degree unless the student has the approval of the department.
Not all courses listed are available at any one time; some of them are given in alternate years.
Courses taken during the fall semester 1975 and thereafter will have graduate rank if they are taught by members of the Graduate School faculty and are in one of the following two categories:
1. Courses within the major department at the 500 level or above.
2. Courses outside the major department at any level, provided they are approved for graduate rank for a specific degree plan by the faculty of the degree-granting program.
This does not change the minimum number of courses that must be taken at the 500 level or above. However, as a result, most students who include 400-level courses of other departments in their program will not exceed those minimum requirements for graduation.
Field of Study
Studies leading to a master’s degree may be divided between major and minor subjects at the discretion of the faculty of the degree-granting program.
Status
After a student has made a satisfactory record in this University for at least one semester or summer term and after he has removed any deficiencies that were determined at the time of admission or by qualifying examinations or otherwise, he should confer with his major department and request that a decision be made on his status. This definite status must be set by his major department before a student may make application for admission to candidacy for an advanced degree.
Students who are inadequately prepared must make up without credit toward a graduate degree all prerequisites required by the department concerned.
Language Requirements
Candidates must have such knowledge of ancient and modern languages as each department requires. See special departmental requirements.
Credit by Transfer
Resident graduate work of high quality done in a recognized graduate school elsewhere and coming within the time limit may be accepted up to a limited amount, provided it is recommended by the department concerned and approved by the resident dean of the Graduate School.
All work accepted by transfer must come within the 5-year time limit or be validated by special examination.
The maximum amount of work that may be transferred to this University is 8 semester hours.
Credit will not be transferred until the student has established in the Graduate School of this University a satisfactory record of at least one semester in residence; such transfer will not reduce the residence requirement at this University, but it may reduce the amount of work


Graduate School / 77
to be done in formal courses. Requests for transfer of credit to be applied toward an advanced degree must be made on the form specified for this purpose and submitted to the Graduate School by the beginning of the semester prior to that in which the student will be graduated.
Work already applied toward a master’s degree received from another institution cannot be accepted for transfer toward the master’s degree at the University of Colorado; extension work completed at another institution cannot be transferred; and correspondence work, except to make up deficiencies, is not recognized.
Excess undergraduate credits from another institution may not be transferred to the Graduate School. Seniors in this University may, however, transfer a limited amount of advanced resident work (up to 8 semester hours) provided such work:
1. Is completed with distinction in the senior year at this University.
2. Comes within the five-year time limit.
3. Has not been applied toward another degree.
4. Is recommended for transfer by the department concerned and is approved by the dean of the Graduate School.
Requests for transfer of credit to be applied toward an advanced degree must be made on the form specified for this purpose and submitted to the Graduate School by the beginning of the semester prior to that in which the student will be graduated. For more information contact the Graduate School office.
Residency
In general, the residency requirements can be met only by residence at this University for at least two semesters or at least three summer terms. For full residence a student must be registered within the time designated at the beginning of a semester and must carry the equivalent of not fewer than 5 semester hours of work in courses numbered 500 or above, or at least 8 semester hours of other graduate work. See Limitation of Registration, Full Load, for requirements for full residence credit during the summer. A student who is noticeably deficient in his/her general training, or in the specific preparation indicated by each department as prerequisite to graduate work, cannot expect to obtain a degree in the minimum time specified.
Assistants and other employees of the University may fulfill the residence requirements of one year in two semesters, provided their duties do not require more than half time. Full-time employees may not satisfy the residence requirements of one year in fewer than four semesters.
Admission to Candidacy
A student who wishes to become a candidate for a master’s degree must file application in the dean’s office not later than 10 weeks prior to the completion of the comprehensive final examination. The number of hours to be presented for the degree must be determined before this application may be filed. See previous section on Status.
This application must be made on forms obtainable at the dean’s office and in various departments and must be signed by the major department, certifying that the
student’s work is satisfactory and that the program outlined in the application meets the requirements set for the student.
A student on Graduate School probation is not eligible to be awarded a degree until he or she is removed from probation.
Thesis Requirements
A thesis, which may be of a research, expository, critical, or creative type, is required of every master’s degree candidate under Plan I. Every thesis presented in partial fulfillment of the requirements for an advanced degree must:
1. Deal with a definite topic related to the major field.
2. Be based upon independent study and investigation.
3. Represent the equivalent of from 4 to 6 semester hours of work.
4. Receive the approval of the major department not later than 30 days (in some departments, 90 days) before the commencement at which the degree is to be conferred.
5. Be essentially complete at the time the comprehensive final examination is given.
6. Comply in mechanical features with specifications obtainable from the Graduate School.
Two weeks prior to the date on which the degree is to be conferred, two formally approved, printed or typewritten copies of the thesis must be filed in the Graduate School. The thesis must be complete with abstract.
All theses must be signed by the thesis adviser and the second reader. All approved theses are kept on file in the library. The thesis binding fee must be paid at the Finance Office on the Denver campus when the thesis is deposited in the Graduate School.
Credit hours earned for the thesis will not be accepted toward the requirements for a degree unless such credit has previously been registered. A student working toward a master’s degree must register for thesis for a specific number of hours. The student may register for any specific number of hours in any semester of residence, but the total registered credit for thesis must total a minimum of 4 or a maximum of 6 semester hours, the total number of hours depending upon how much credit is to be given for the thesis.
The final grade will be withheld until the thesis or report is completed. An IP (in progress) will be reported for terms during which the student is registered for thesis prior to completion of the thesis.
Comprehensive Final Examinations
Each candidate for a master's degree is required to take a comprehensive final examination after the other requirements for the degree have been completed. This examination may be given near the end of the candidate’s last semester of residence while he is still taking required courses for the degree, provided he is making satisfactory progress in those courses.
The following rules applying to the comprehensive final examination must be observed:
1. A student must be registered when he or she takes the examination.
2. Notice of the examination must be filed by the major department in the dean’s office at least three days


78 / University of Colorado at Denver
in advance of the examination.
3. The examination is to be given by a committee of three graduate faculty members appointed by the department concerned in consultation with the dean.
4. The examination, which may be oral or written, or both, must cover the thesis, which should be essentially complete at the time, as well as other work done in the University in formal courses and seminars in the major field.
5. An examination in the minor work taken at this University is optional with the major and minor departments.
6. The examination must include all work presented for the degree not done in residence at the University of Colorado, whether in the major or minor field. The examination on transferred work will be given by representatives of the corresponding fields of study in this University.
7. A student who fails the comprehensive final examination may not attempt the examination again until at least three months have elapsed and until such work as may be prescribed by the examining committee has been completed. The student may retake the examination only once.
Master’s Thesis or Report Credit
Every graduate student working toward a master’s degree who expects to present a thesis or M.Ed. report in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree must register for thesis for a minimum of 4 semester hours or a maximum of 6 semester hours, or for M.Ed. report for 2 semester hours. The student may register for any specific number of hours in any semester of residence, but the total number of hours for all semesters must equal the number of credits the student expects to receive for the thesis or report. The final grade will be withheld until the thesis or report is completed. If the thesis or report is not completed at the end of the term in which the student is so registered, an in progress (IP) will be reported. (The student may not register again for any portion of thesis credit on which an IP grade has been submitted.)
Supplemental Examinations
Supplemental examinations should be simply an extension of the original examination and given immediately. If the student fails the supplemental examination, three months must elapse before he or she may attempt the comprehensive examination again.
Course Examinations
The regular written examinations of each semester except the last must be taken. Course examinations of the last semester, which come after the comprehensive final examination has been passed, may be omitted with the consent of the instructor.
Time Limit
All work, including the comprehensive final examination, should be completed within five years or six successive summers. Work done earlier will not be accepted for the degree unless validated by a special examination. Candidates
for the master’s degree are expected to complete their work with reasonable continuity.

ANTHROPOLOGY
The master’s program in anthropology offers general, flexible training in anthropology along with topical specialization and the opportunity to specialize in interdisciplinary, applied areas: medical anthropology and community and urban anthropology. The medical anthropology track is intended to serve students preparing for careers and those with established careers in the health care professions and related fields. Similarly, the community and urban anthropology track is intended to serve those who seek to employ anthropological concepts and methods of community analysis in public administration, development, planning, and allied fields. Working with an advisory committee, each student will tailor an individual program of studies around courses and seminars in anthropology and allied disciplines. These programs will culminate in either a master’s paper-Plan II, or master’s thesis-Plan I. A primary goal of the program is to produce graduates who are capable of understanding and proficient at resolving, in cooperation with others, the many problems of complex societies; consequently, a premium will be placed on interdisciplinary instruction and practical exercises in the design and implementation of research in a variety of settings.
More detailed descriptions of the options available within


Graduate School / 79
the M.A. program may be obtained by writing to the Director of Graduate Studies, Anthropology, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th St., Denver, CO 80202.
Requirements for Admission
Admission to the master’s program in anthropology is open to any holder of a baccalaureate degree, not necessarily in anthropology, provided he or she meets the following requirements: (1) general requirements for admission to the Graduate School (2.75 or better grade-point average for all undergraduate studies); and (2) knowledge of the fundamentals of anthropology. Applicants will be expected to have had a general introductory course in anthropology and secondary courses in ethnology, archaeology, linguistics, and physical anthropology or be able to demonstrate a mastery of materials equivalent to that which might reasonably be expected to result from such formal training. Applicants deficient in background may be admitted on a conditional basis and will be required to make up deficiencies without graduate credit during the first year in residence. A simpler alternative, when practical, would be to remove deficiencies as a special student prior to applying for admission to the graduate program.
In order to be considered for admission into the master’s program, an applicant must submit (1) two copies of transcripts from all undergraduate institutions attended; (2) Graduate Record Examination scores for verbal and quantitative aptitude; and (3) at least three letters of recommendation. Evidence of previous nonacademic anthropology-oriented work or other experience will be carefully considered, as will that of special skills relevant to anthropological research. Departmental deadlines for receipt of applications for admission to the Graduate School, including accompanying materials, is April 15 for fall entrance, October 15 for spring entrance.
Further information concerning specialization within the program, departmental admission and advising policies, etc., may be obtained by writing the Director of Graduate Studies in Anthropology, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202. For general Graduate School requirements and application information, see beginning of graduate section of this bulletin.
Residency Requirement
A minimum of two full semesters devoted to advanced study is required by the Graduate School. Students working toward the master’s degree in anthropology will be strongly encouraged to attain that degree within three years following matriculation into the program.
Course Hours and Distribution
A minimum of 36 semester hours of credit is required for the M.A. degree in anthropology. All nonthesis course work in anthropology must be at the 500 level or above. Course work is to be distributed as follows for students pursuing an interdisciplinary specialty within the general anthropology track, the medical anthropology track, or the community and urban anthropology track:
Courses in anthropology.........15 semester hours minimum
Courses in related fields.......15 semester hours minimum
For students pursuing a subdisciplinary specialty within the general anthropology track, course work is to be distributed as follows:
Courses in anthropology.......18 semester hours minimum
Courses in related fields.....12 semester hours minimum
The remaining 6 semester hours may be met either by (Plan I) writing a master’s thesis, for which 6 hours credit is given, or by (Plan II) taking 6 additional hours of course work and writing a master’s paper on an agreed upon course work topic.
Thesis or Paper
The student must either carry out an original research project and report the results in a thesis of professional quality or write a master’s paper, more limited in scope, to complete the degree. A thesis provides a valuable opportunity to initiate or pursue important, individual research objectives. The master’s paper is intended as a flexible alternative for students who wish to pursue in depth some issue or specialty topic without engaging in the sustained research effort on which a master’s thesis depends.
APPLIED MATHEMATICS
See Mathematics Program.
BASIC SCIENCE, MASTER OF
Collin Hightower, Coordinator for UCD
The program leading to the Master of Basic Science (M.B.S.) degree is interdisciplinary. It provides an opportunity for present and prospective mathematics and science professionals and others to extend and/or broaden their training in computer science, mathematics, museology, and the natural and physical sciences at advanced undergraduate and graduate levels. These professionals include public school teachers, industrial scientists, engineers, business persons, and others. The student may elect the mathematics, science, or museology options as described below. Wide latitude is possible in the details of a degree plan so that students may follow a course of study most pertinent to their interests. The degree plan will be designed in conjunction with the student’s adviser and must be approved by the executive committee.
All courses credited toward the degree must be taken through the University of Colorado at Boulder, Colorado Springs, or Denver, over a period of five years or six successive summers.
The Master of Basic Science degree is supervised by an administrative committee appointed by the dean of the Graduate School, and administered by an executive committee elected from the administrative committee.

BIOLOGY
The master’s program in biology is designed to prepare graduates for research and teaching positions, employment in business and industry, and for advanced graduate work at the doctoral level. The M.A. in biology may be obtained with an emphasis in ecology, genetics, plant science, and organismic biology (including anatomy, physiology, and development).
Two principles have guided the development of the graduate program in biology. These are (1) the belief that a student’s program should be tailored to meet the student’s specific needs or personal goals and (2) the utilization of all the University’s resource facilities, regardless of the campus on which they are located, in order to provide greater opportunity and exposure for the student.
Requirements for Admission
Applicants must hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university earned with an overall grade-point average of 3.0 or better. (Exceptions to this grade-point average are made, dependent upon the letters of recommendation made on the student’s behalf.) Most applicants have an undergraduate major in biology or its equivalent. Students who do not meet the minimum requirements set by the department or the Graduate School may be admitted on a provisional basis as detailed in


Graduate School / 81
the Graduate School general information section in this bulletin. The general portion of the GRE is required; the advanced biology test is recommended but not required. Applications are submitted directly to the biology graduate coordinator at UCD.
Degree Requirements
All course work taken within the department and applied toward the degree must be 500 level or above. With the adviser’s and/or graduate committee’s approval, course work at the 400 level taken outside the department may be applied toward the degree. Two types of degree plans are offered:
Plan I (with thesis) requires 24 semester hours including 4-6 hours of thesis; at least 12 of the total semester hours must be 500 level or above.
Plan II (without thesis) requires 30 semester hours of which 16 hours must be 500 level or above.
There is no core of required courses structured into the master’s degree program. A course plan is developed by the student and major professor and approved by the student’s graduate committee.
Additional Information
The student is referred to the biology graduate coordinator (629-3419) and to the Department of Biology’s Master of Arts in Biology brochure which is available in the Graduate School office. Specific questions relating to the student’s background and specific program needs should be directed to the biology graduate coordinator.
CHEMISTRY
The M.S. degree is offered at UCD in any of the following basic fields: analytical, biochemistry, inorganic, organic, or physical chemistry. Additionally, research programs involving environmental and geochemical problems are being encouraged.
The M.S. program is available to both full- and part-time students. The chemistry faculty at UCD strive to ensure that students receive excellent advising and supervision of work. Students enrolled in the program have an opportunity to be appointed as laboratory teaching assistants. Research activities on the part of the chemistry faculty provide opportunities for graduate students to obtain research assistantships.
Requirements for Admission
Students must meet the Graduate School admission requirements. International students may have additional admission requirements concerning immigration status, proof of financial responsibility, and minimum TOEFL scores. An undergraduate major in chemistry, including two semesters of physical chemistry, is desirable as all entering students are required to pass qualifying examinations covering the major fields of chemistry. The GRE examination is required and the advanced chemistry GRE examination score is recommended. If either the Graduate School or departmental requirements are not satisfied, students may be admitted on a provisional basis.
Degree Requirements
There are two methods of obtaining a master’s degree from the Department of Chemistry:
Plan I is a research-oriented plan requiring 15 to 20 credit hours of formal course work, 4 to 9 credit hours in research courses, and the successful oral presentation of a written thesis covering the research project.
Plan II is a course work-oriented plan without a thesis requiring 24 credit hours of formal course work, 6 credit hours in research courses, and the successful oral presentation of a written report covering the research project.
Examinations. Qualifying preliminary examinations are given to all entering students in the five basic fields of chemistry. Students must take and pass a minimum of three of these examinations. After completion of the student’s research project, a final oral examination is given to cover the thesis (Plan I) or research report (Plan II).
Language. Each student must demonstrate a third-semester undergraduate proficiency in a foreign language. Organic chemistry students are encouraged to meet the requirement in German while other students may use French, German, Japanese, or Russian.
Prospective students are encouraged to contact the chemistry graduate adviser, Robert Damrauer, at 629-2743 for additional details concerning the chemistry program, admission procedures, financial assistance, and faculty research interests.
CIVIL ENGINEERING
Civil engineering graduate programs at UCD are offered through the combined departments of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering (Boulder) and Civil and Urban Engineering (Denver). Students wishing to pursue graduate work in civil engineering leading to candidacy for the M.S. or Ph.D. degrees should read carefully Requirements for Advanced Degrees in this bulletin. All requirements for the M.S. and a large part of those for the Ph.D. may be completed at UCD. A pamphlet elaborating on the rules as they apply to civil engineering is available from the departmental office at UCD, UA 403, 629-2871.
No qualifying examination is required for the M.S. degree; however, in competition for all University fellowships, the Graduate Record Examination, consisting of the aptitude tests and the advanced test in engineering, is used in the evaluation of candidates. Therefore, students are advised to take this examination prior to their arrival on campus.
Programs are available in the fields of transportation, water quality and water resources, hydraulics, soil mechanics, structural mechanics, and structural design.
In each program, courses are selected by the student (under supervision of the faculty adviser) in such a way as to meet the student’s interests and the requirements of the Graduate School.
See also Master of Engineering degree.
The civil engineering program has no Ph.D. foreign language requirement other than those communication requirements established by the Graduate School. For more

While there are no specific prerequisites beyond those required by the Graduate School, students admitted who are unable to offer a substantial number of semester hours of work in the area of their intended specialization or allied fields must expect that a significant number of additional courses and semester hours will be required of them in order to make up deficiencies.
Degree Requirements
Every student must take a diagnostic examination before completing 9 semester hours.
For every student who declares intention to qualify for an advanced degree, an adviser and committee will be selected not later than the beginning of the student’s second semester (or second summer term) in residence. It is the duty of this adviser and committee to assume the responsibility for (1) approving the student’s graduate program; and (2) evaluating the student’s qualifying examination, thesis, and comprehensive final examination.
All M.A. degree candidates are required to complete
C.T. 601 or its equivalent. At least two courses (4 to 8 hours) must be taken outside the department or outside the departmental area(s) of concentration.
Plan I. With Thesis. After any undergraduate deficiencies have been removed, students under Plan I must normally earn 27 semester hours of which a minimum of 16 must be earned in one major area. Four to 6 thesis credit hours may be counted toward the 27-hour requirement.
The Plan 11 Option W/T is available at UCD only upon application.
Courses at the 500 level or above may be applied
toward the graduate degree by graduate students in communication and theatre. Some courses are available only on the Boulder campus; inquiry should be made.

ECONOMICS
The M.A. program in economics at UCD is especially directed toward two groups: (1) those who look on the M.A. as a key to career development in business or government service and (2) those who desire to go on to Ph.D. studies in economics or related fields.
In serving these constituencies, the department seeks to strike a balance between generating technical competence in handling modern quantitative techniques and providing solid grounding in several applied fields of economics. While these two aims overlap to some degree in the course offerings, prospective degree candidates should determine rather early in their studies at UCD whether to emphasize quantitative and theoretical work or applied fields, or to balance the two.
In addition to offering regularly a graduate sequence in macroeconomic and microeconomic theory, and econometrics, the department emphasizes the following: urban economics, transportation economics, resource economics, environmental economics, public finance and policy, education of economists, political economy, and mathematical economics. Persons interested in the program should contact the graduate adviser in the Department of Economics at 629-2616.
Requirements for Admission
1. General requirements of the Graduate School (including a 2.75 undergraduate cumulative grade-point average).
2. Three letters of recommendation.
3. Sixteen semester hours of undergraduate economics.
4. Acceptable Graduate Record Examination scores.
5. Two official transcripts from all colleges attended.
Degree Requirements
1. Economic Theory (Econ. 507).
2. Quantitative Methods (Econ. 581).
3. Plan I: An M.A. Thesis. Twenty-four semester hours, of which 12 must be at the 600 level or above and 4 semester hours of thesis credit. Thesis credit does not count toward the 12 600-level hours.
4. Plan II: Without Thesis. Thirty semester hours, of which 15 must be at the 600 level or above. Two fields of concentration. Each field requires 6 credit hours, but the structure is highly flexible, e.g., one field can be an internship.
EDUCATION
Graduate study in education at the University of Colorado is offered on three campuses (Denver, Boulder, and Colorado Springs) and through 14 program areas. All inquiries regarding programs at UCD should be directed to the Dean’s Office, School of Education, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th St., Denver, CO 80202, or to the Resident Dean of the Graduate School at UCD.
A wide range of professional and academic interest is served by these programs. Programs of study can be undertaken in the following areas:
Administration and supervision Early childhood education Educational psychology Elementary education Foundations
Guidance and counseling (elementary, secondary, and agency settings)
Library media
Middle school certification
Reading
School psychology certification Secondary education
(mathematics education, science education, English education, social studies education)
Special education
Graduate studies in education are offered at the M.A. (thesis and nonthesis) level. In some instances, doctoral work can be taken at UCD, but only with the prior approval of a student’s adviser, and the dean’s office on both the Boulder and Denver campuses.
Outlines of each of the graduate programs of study are available upon request from the School of Education office at UCD. Since many of the graduate degree plans are flexible and can be designed around individual student needs, it is highly desirable that the prospective candidate discuss tentative programs of studies with appropriate faculty members prior to submitting applications.
Application for Admission
A prospective candidate should request application forms from the dean’s office, School of Education, University of Colorado at Denver. The completed form should be returned to the Dean, School of Education, UCD, together with a $20 application fee. The fee should be in the form of a check or money order payable to the University of Colorado. Two copies of official transcripts of all previous college and university study should be ordered by the applicant to be sent to the dean. Four recommendations on the forms provided, or by letter, should be furnished. At least two of these should be from college or university professors who can write with assurance about the applicant’s academic and professional achievement promise. One or two recommendations from supervisors or employers are acceptable with reference to an applicant’s ability and contribution to the enterprise with which he/she was or is associated. Application papers and all supporting documents (including GRE scores or MAT scores, see below) must be in the dean’s office on April 1 for summer, June 1 for fall, and October 1 for spring semester admission.
Applicants should request the Educational Testing Service to send their scores on the aptitude test (verbal and quantitative) of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), or scores from the Miller’s Analogy Test, to the dean’s office. If an applicant has not taken the Graduate Record Examination or the Miller’s Analogy Test, he/she should arrange to do so. The GRE or MAT is administered at many centers throughout the country. Information about the GRE may be obtained from the Graduate School Office, the Student Affairs Office at UCD, the Educational Testing Service, 20 Nassau Street, Princeton, New Jersey 08540, or the graduate office of a university in the applicant’s area.
Degree Requirements
Two Master of Arts degree plans and a Master of Education plan are available, each comprising one academic


84 / University of Colorado at Denver
year or more of graduate work beyond the bachelor’s degree. The minimum residence requirement for any master’s degree is one academic year or the equivalent, and it may be satisfied by two semesters in residence, or three full summer sessions, or any combination equal to two semesters.
1. M.A.—Plan I (With Thesis). The program consists of 36 semester hours or more, including 4 semester hours for the master’s thesis. While the inclusion of a minor field is not required by the Graduate School, a student and adviser may agree on a minor, in which 4 to 8 semester hours can be applied toward degree requirements.
The M.A. thesis is written in accordance with the specifications set by the Graduate School and under the supervision of the student’s adviser. When a complete first draft is ready for final typing, the thesis must be read by a second reader appointed by the dean’s office. If the second reader approves the thesis, both the reader and the adviser will sign it when it is presented for filing with the Graduate School. If the reader does not approve, he/she and the student’s adviser will confer and suggest appropriate changes. Two copies are required by the Graduate School.
2. M.A.—Plan 11 (Without Thesis). The Plan II program includes 36 or more semester hours of graduate credit, and may include 4 to 10 hours for a minor. The minor is highly recommended in some fields of study.
3. Master of Education (M.Ed.). This program requires a minimum of 36 or more semester hours of graduate work, including a professional report for which 2 semester hours credit is granted. The professional report is prepared under the supervision of the student’s adviser, in accordance with thesis specifications issued by the Graduate School. One copy is submitted to the adviser upon completion, but none is filed with the Graduate School.
EDUCATION AS A MINOR FIELD
In M.A. programs for majors outside the School of Education, students may include education as a minor if both their major department and the dean’s office of the School of Education approve. For master’s degrees, a minor in education consists of at least 6 semester hours of study in related courses. Not more than 2 semester hours may be transferred from another institution.
Students who propose to minor in education must have had sufficient undergraduate work in education to prepare them for graduate study in the field. Appraisal of undergraduate preparation will be made by the dean’s office and the coordinator of the program area in which the proposed minor courses will be taken.
ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
Electrical engineering graduate programs at UCD are offered through the combined Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering (Denver) and Electrical Engineering (Boulder).

holography, circuits and electronics, fields and propagation, and power systems.
Requirements for Admission
A student wishing to pursue work in electrical engineering should read carefully the Requirements for Advanced Degrees section in this bulletin, and should also obtain a copy of the specific electrical engineering requirements by writing to the Director of Graduate Admissions, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Colorado at Denver, Denver, CO 80202. Special students and those intending to pursue a graduate program at UCD are urged to consult the departmental representative as part of their application procedure.
Degree Requirements
Master’s degree students are expected to present a thesis unless specifically exempted by the department.
The Ph.D. preliminary examination will include the following areas:
Bioengineering
Circuits (active, passive, models)
Communication theory
Computers
Control systems
Electric and magnetic fields
Energy conversion and power systems
Mathematics
Physical and semiconductor electronics
Each student must complete two sections, mathematics and the area in which he/she plans to specialize, and must present an acceptable master’s thesis or the equivalent as an indication of ability to perform independent research.
ENGINEERING, MASTER OF
The Master of Engineering degree program is administered by the Graduate School through the departments of engineering. The requirements for admission and for quality and quantity of academic work are essentially the same as for the Master of Science degree awarded in the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
The principal difference between the Master of Engineering degree and the Master of Science degree is that the Master of Engineering is intended especially to meet the needs of those practicing engineers who wish to follow an integrated, interdisciplinary program of studies in engineering or in engineering and allied subjects related to the individual student’s professional work. Examples of such interdisciplinary programs include engineering and social sciences, engineering and biological sciences, engineering and behavioral sciences, engineering and public administration, engineering and law, and engineering and business administration.
The degree will be especially valuable for continuing education programs for engineers in industry. It will provide a framework for such persons to work toward significant goals fitted to their particular interests. The program can include courses which are made available on video tape or on live television.
The Master of Engineering degree is not intended as


Graduate School / 85
a means to permit a random, unguided selection of courses. Each prospective student is required to present a well-defined objective in order to be admitted to the program. In consultation with the faculty advisers, an academic program is developed to meet this objective.
The admission of students to graduate study, the approval of their degree programs, admission to candidacy for the degree, and the approval of the awarding of a degree are to originate through a specific department of the College of Engineering and Applied Science, in the same manner as for the established Master of Science program. An advisory committee, including not fewer than three faculty members, will be appointed for each student by his or her department. The membership of each advisory committee shall be chosen from the various interdisciplinary academic areas represented in the student’s program and will be from more than one department. The advisory committee guides the student, and is responsible for approving the individual’s degree program and admission to candidacy; and approves the student’s written report and the awarding of the degree.
Degree Requirements
The requirements for the degree are 30 credit hours plus a written report on a creative investigation which may be related to the student’s professional work. The report will be of the same general quality as that required for the thesis for the Master of Science degree and must be defended orally, but does not in itself carry credit nor require registration. It may be based upon work done for credit under independent study. At least 15 credit hours must be in engineering at the 500 level or above. As many as 15 credit hours may be taken outside of engineering. Credit in courses below the 400 level will not apply toward degree requirements.
Additional information about the degree may be obtained from the College of Engineering and Applied Science departmental offices.
ENGLISH
Students admitted to graduate study in English may complete all or substantially all of their course requirements for either the M.A. or Ph.D. at UCD; examinations are administered through the English department on the Boulder campus.
Requirements for Admission
Admission requirements for graduate study in English include satisfactory scores on verbal and advanced (literature) parts of the Graduate Record Examination, plus at least 24 semester hours in English (exclusive of composition, creative writing and speech, and literature courses counting as credits in education). At least 16 semester hours must be in upper division work.
Degree Requirements
Students wishing to pursue graduate work in English should note Requirements for Advanced Degrees in this bulletin. They also should obtain a copy of the brochure, Graduate Study in English, issued by the English department and should consult the adviser for graduate
English studies at UCD.
All students planning to take any graduate English examination must state their intentions to the graduate adviser for English studies at UCD at least ten weeks prior to the date of the examination.
The graduate courses in English are also applicable to the Master of Humanities program at UCD.
For more information contact the graduate adviser at (303) 629-2730.
ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE
The environmental science degree is designed to provide students with training in engineering, natural/physical sciences, and socioeconomic analysis. The goals of the program are to: (1) enhance the interdisciplinary communication and analytical skills of the student, and (2) provide opportunities for more intensive training within a particular subject area. Students will receive instruction in the physical and biological dynamics of various ecosystems, environmental engineering, and socioeconomic issues associated with environmental analysis.
Degree Requirements
The degree curriculum consists of three, components: (1) a set of five core courses required of all students (16 hours); (2) elective courses taken in two of the three subject areas (18 hours minimum); and (3) an in-service research project and report (3 hours). At least 21 of the 37 credit hours required for the degree must be at the 500 level or above. Program flexibility is provided through the selection of elective courses in various subject areas.
To fulfill the elective requirements, students select one of the following options. Each option includes courses from two of the three subject areas (engineering, natural/ physical sciences, socioeconomic sciences).
Engineering Option. Six hours of natural/physical sciences or socioeconomic sciences and 12 hours of engineering.
Natural/Physical Sciences Option. Six hours of engineering and 12 hours of natural/physical sciences.
Socioeconomic Science Option. Six hours of engineering and 12 hours of socioeconomic sciences.

At present UCD offers no French courses above 599. The courses at the 500 level are applicable to an M.A. degree through the University of Colorado at Boulder, depending upon degree plan approval by the graduate adviser in Boulder in each case. The graduate courses in French are also applicable to the Master of Humanities program at UCD.
GEOGRAPHY
An M.A. degree program is offered at UCD emphasizing the spatial analysis of a variety of urban phenomena. Areas of specialization include urban economic/social geography, transportation, quantitative methods, demography, land use, perception, and environmental planning. Graduate training toward the Ph.D. degree is also available at UCD, but applications are presently processed by the departmental office on the Boulder campus. Flexible programs are designed to meet the needs of both full- and part-time students.
Requirements for Admission
For admission to the M.A. program, the student must have a bachelor’s degree in geography or some allied field. Applicants with little or no training in geography may be required to take additional course work in areas deemed necessary for completing graduate work. The GRE verbal and quantitative examinations, or their equivalent for foreign students, are required of all applicants.
Degree Requirements
Two types of degree programs are available. Plan 1 requires a minimum of 18 credit hours of course work and 6 credit hours of thesis research and presentation work. Plan II includes a minimum of 24 credit hours of course work, as well as 4 to 6 independent student credit hours involving completion of a project or paper of publishable quality.
All incoming graduate students must complete three courses with three different departmental faculty within the first semester (or first year for part-time students). At least one of the three courses must be in physical geography and one in human geography. The performance in these courses will be used by a faculty committee to (1) determine the general fitness of the student to continue toward the M.A. degree and (2) identify any academic deficiencies the student may have.

More information about opportunities for Denver students is available in the UCD office of the Division of Natural and Physical Sciences, 629-2646.
HISTORY
The history faculty of the University of Colorado at Denver offers a master’s degree program which encompasses certain fields of modern history. Students applying for admission to the program should have sufficient background in history, though not necessarily a B.A. in the subject, and some knowledge of allied social sciences to afford an adequate foundation for graduate work. However, the department encourages applications from individuals interested in resuming their education.
The master’s degree in history is traditionally viewed as training for careers in education, government service, museum and archive management, or historic preservation activities as well as for further degree work in law and business management. But the degree program is also attractive to individuals who want to further their general education.
Requirements for Admission
Application forms for admission to graduate study in history are available from the UCD Graduate School office. In addition to the general admission requirements of the Graduate School, applicants for admission to the history program must take the verbal and the advanced history section of the Graduate Record Examination. Applicants may also submit a significant sample of their writing. The Admissions Committee will examine carefully all materials submitted, including transcripts and letters of recommendation, and advise that candidates make appointments for an interview.
Degree Requirements
Candidates in history must satisfy the general requirements of the Graduate School which are outlined in this bulletin. In meeting the master’s degree requirements of the Department of History candidates have two options. They must complete either 30 semester hours of course work, or 24 semester hours of course work and a thesis. Under the first option, candidates must include in the 30 hours at least 15 hours of course work at the 600 level or above and 3 hours of 700-level work in their major field. Under the second option, the 24 hours of course work must include at least 12 hours of work at the 600 level or above and 3 hours at the 700 level in the major field. The thesis (4-6 hours) counts as 700-level work. A candidate is urged to select his or her thesis, which is subject to departmental approval, by the beginning of the second semester. The writing of the thesis shall be under the supervision of the candidate’s major adviser. Except in special circumstances, the department strongly recommends the thesis option.
Upon nearing the completion of their degree work, all candidates are required to pass a final written comprehensive examination in their major field. The examination, to be registered for in advance, will be given each semester, including summers, at announced times and will be

HUMANITIES, MASTER OF
The Master of Humanities is an interdisciplinary degree offered at UCD. Its purpose is to provide an opportunity for students to broaden their understanding of the relationships among the several areas normally subsumed under the heading of humanities, e.g., communication, philosophy, the arts, literature, and the languages. The M.H. program is especially suitable for the many high
school, junior high school, and elementary school teachers who find themselves in the position of having to teach in several different areas of the humanities. However the M.H. program is by no means restricted to teachers.
All courses required for the M.H. degree are offered at UCD.
Requirements for Admission
Each student is required to take the Graduate Record Examination aptitude test as an aid in the planning of his/her studies for the degree.
Before entering the M.H. program, a student is expected to have had at least 40 semester hours in the humanities. Humanities, as used here, is broadly conceived to include general studies in communication, theatre, philosophy, literature, the arts, the languages, and other areas as agreed upon by the student and the Graduate School.
General requirements of the Graduate School governing the awarding of the master’s degree apply.
Degree Requirements
All courses credited toward the M.H. degree must be taken at the University of Colorado over a period not exceeding five years or six successive summers. The M.H. degree program shall be supervised by an advisory committee consisting of three members of the graduate faculty, each from a different area of the humanities.
In addition to the 3 hours for Hum. 500 (described below), candidates for the M.H. degree are expected to complete a minimum of 24 semester hours at the 500 level or higher in four of the following areas (i.e., 3-9 hours in each area):
Communication English Fine arts
French language and literature
History
Music
Philosophy
Spanish language and literature Theatre
Up to 6 hours in areas other than those listed above may be accepted as humanities as agreed upon by the student and the advisory comittee.
The requirement of 3-9 hours in each area is intended to ensure that the student achieves a considerable degree of breadth. On the other hand, this requirement should not be construed as precluding the student from doing additional work in one particular field in order to achieve further depth.
Within one calendar year of entering the M.H. program, the student is required to take Hum. 500 (may be repeated as 501). This is a 3-credit seminar that deals with the identity of the humanities, their place in the life of man, the various media through which they manifest themselves, and related matters. Hum. 500 (and 501 if repeated) count as part of the 30 hours required for the M.H. degree. Twenty-four of the required hours will be taken in the disciplines listed above, the remainder to be completed through Hum. 500 (and 501 if repeated).
Before completing 15 hours of course work toward the M.H., the student must meet with an advisory committee to plan the directions and emphases for the remainder of studies for the degree.
After completing the 30 hours required for the degree,


88 / University of Colorado at Denver
the student is required to pass a comprehensive examination covering the three areas in which course work has been concentrated. It should be stressed that this examination is not a combination of three different master’s degree examinations; rather, it is an opportunity for the student to display, and the faculty to view, the student’s expertise in combining significant aspects of three different fields, bringing major trends and ideas of the fields into meaningful relationships with each other. The examination will be composed and administered by the student’s advisory committee.
After satisfactory completion of the comprehensive examination, the student must present a final thesis or project. This is a substantial scholarly and/or creative exercise involving three different humanistic areas. It is supervised by the student’s advisory committee and must be performed or presented before an open seminar consisting of the committee and any other faculty members who wish to attend. The approved thesis or report of thesis-performance shall be recorded in the Graduate School.
Throughout this work toward the M.H. degree, the student must uphold the high standards of the Graduate School, maintaining at least a B average in all courses taken subsequent to his/her admission to the M.H. program.
Required Courses
The only course specifically required for the M.H. degree is the new Hum. 500 described above.
The 24 hours (in addition to Hum. 500) required for the degree will normally be drawn from 500-level courses which already exist at UCD.
The language requirement for the M.H. degree is fourth-semester proficiency in a language relevant to the student’s particular course of study. Such relevancy will be decided upon by the student’s advisory committee.
For further information about the Master of Humanities degree program students should contact the Division of Arts and Humanities, 629-2730.
MANAGEMENT AND ORGANIZATION, MANAGEMENT SCIENCE, AND MARKETING
Refer to the Graduate School of Business Administration section of this bulletin.
MATHEMATICS
Two graduate degrees may be earned in mathematics: the M.A. in mathematics and the M.S. in applied mathematics. (Also see Master of Basic Science.) It is the responsibility of each individual student to see that the requirements for these degrees are satisfied at the proper time.
Requirements for Admission
To begin graduate work toward one of' the above degrees, a student should have at least the following preparation: 30 semester hours in mathematics including, beyond a full course in calculus, a year’s course in advanced calculus, 3 semester hours of linear algebra and either a 3-semester-hour course in higher algebra or a 3-semester-
hour course in ordinary differential equations.
Students who do not have all the prerequisites for one of the advanced degrees may still be admitted provisionally if, in the faculty’s judgment, their record justifies this (but also see the Graduate School admission requirements).
For a mathematics minor for a graduate degree, a full course in calculus is a prerequisite.
Degree Requirements for the M.A. and M.S.
The student must present 30 hours of course work, including a 6-hour minor. All mathematics courses submitted must be numbered 500 or higher. If the minor is taken outside of mathematics, the minor courses must be numbered 400 or higher.
These 30 hours must be planned in consultation with and approved by a mathematics graduate adviser.
There is no thesis requirement for either degree. However, the candidate must make a one hour oral presentation on an approved topic. A committee of two graduate faculty members is selected by the candidate to approve the topic and supervise its preparation and presentation.
There is no foreign language requirement for either master’s degree. However, students who may want to continue for a Ph.D. should satisfy at least one of the foreign language requirements before obtaining a master’s degree.
All master’s degree programs must be planned in consultation with an approved mathematics graduate adviser. Prospective candidates for a master’s degree should select a graduate adviser and develop and file a degree program plan at the earliest possible date. Failure to do this could result in the loss of credits for courses that cannot be approved for the option selected. Contact the department for information on selecting a graduate adviser.
The department offers a wide assortment of programs leading to a master’s degree and is continuing an expansion of the applied mathematics faculty and course offerings. At present, the Master of Science in applied mathematics has the following options: (1) engineering or science applications, (2) computer science applications, (3) statistics applications, and (4) economics applications. Other options will become available as appropriate faculty are employed.
For further information contact the graduate adviser at (303) 629-2646.
MECHANICAL ENGINEERING
Under the auspices of the Mechanical Engineering Department at Boulder, the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Denver is offering graduate courses. The department offers graduate programs leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering to students whose goal is teaching, research, or advanced development in the broad disciplines of solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, thermodynamics, mechanical and thermal design, and engineering economy and management. These areas of study provide the technical background necessary to deal with a wide variety of contemporary mechanical engineering problems. Typical examples include combustion-generated pollution; fire safety; effective use of alternative energy sources such as solar and geothermal heat; efficient energy management of thermal systems; dynamic


Graduate School / 89
behavior of high-strength composites; earthquake engineering; brittle fracture of coal and oil shale; and bioengineering topics such as heart-valve research, design of prosthetic devices, and modeling of the human spine.
Degree Requirements
At the M.S. degree level, students followng Plan I (with thesis) are required to take 9 hours of core courses which include engineering analysis and a selection from thermodynamics, mechanics, design, and mechanisms. Students following Plan II (all formal course work) are required to take 15 hours of core courses in thermodynamics, continuum mechanics, dynamics, and engineering mathematics. The remainder of the program is developed by the student in consultation with the adviser.
For admission to Ph.D. candidacy the student must pass a comprehensive examination to demonstrate a general competence in mechanical engineering at an advanced level. In addition, second-year, college-level reading proficiency must be demonstrated in scientific French, German, Russian, or other foreign language approved by the department upon petition by the student.
Graduate Study in Mechanics
Graduate programs leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanics which emphasize the mechanical sciences of solids and fluids and thermal science, are available through the Department of Mechanical Engineering. For students working in mechanics, a strong cognate program in mathematics is imperative. Specific degree plans emphasize courses of both a fundamental character and a research level treatment. Requirements for the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanics are similar to those in mechanical engineering, with the additional requirements that students following Plan II (all formal course work) at the M.S. level must take 6 hours in advanced calculus, ordinary and differential equations, complex variables, and boundary value problems or their equivalents.
MUSIC
Graduate study in music at UCD is presently offered in several cooperative programs with the University of Colorado at Boulder. Varying amounts of work toward the Master of Music Education and the Master of Music degrees may be taken in Denver. Admission to these programs is achieved by application to the Office of the Associate Dean for Graduate Study, College of Music, University of Colorado at Boulder, Boulder, CO 80309.
Postbaccalaureate study in the special areas of concentration unique to UCD include composition and arranging, sound synthesis and recording, and music management. Since these are innovative programs, prospective candidates should make personal inquiry at UCD about requirements.
The music educator intending to undertake graduate work will find the UCD programs attractive, particularly if he or she has special interests in jazz, rock, improvisation, sound synthesis and recording, and the repertory associated with today’s youth.
The composer-arranger-performer-producer who seeks graduate training in the fields of recording, television, and
music for advertising also will find UCD responsive to his or her needs.
Applied Music Policy
All performance standards, requirements, and credits specified for a particular music degree in this College do not necessarily transfer and become acceptable for any other music degree within the College. Additional information on this policy is available from the Office of the Resident Dean, UCD College of Music.
PHILOSOPHY
Applicants for admission to the Graduate School for work toward an M.A. or Ph.D. degree with a major in philosophy are expected to have had 18 or more semester hours in undergraduate courses in the subject including history of philosophy. While some course work at the graduate level may be taken at UCD in this discipline, all degree programs must be arranged through the University of Colorado at Boulder.
Students wishing to pursue graduate work in philosophy should note Requirements for Advanced Degrees in this bulletin and should obtain from the department a copy of the Graduate Program in Philosophy. The Graduate Record Examination is not required.
Certain special programs exist (M.A.’s in comparative East/West philosophy and in history and philosophy of science), details of which may be had on request.
PHYSICS
While some course work at the graduate level may be taken at UCD in this discipline, all degree programs must be arranged through the University of Colorado at Boulder. Physics courses at the 400 level may be used for graduate credit for students in nonphysics graduate programs.
POLITICAL SCIENCE
Requirements for Admission
Students applying for admission to the M.A. program in political science normally should present at least 18 hours of undergraduate or previous graduate work in political science, at least 9 hours of which should be at the upper division or graduate level. Deficiencies may be made up at UCD by enrolling in political science courses as a special student. Deficiencies usually must be made up before the student will be admitted as a regular degree student, and the work involved will be in addition to the minimum hourly requirements for the degree. Graduate Record Examination aptitude scores are required of applicants. The department may make exceptions to these requirements in unusual cases (for instance, where course work in related fields such as psychology, economics, and history, or practical political experience, compensate for course work deficiencies in political science).
Degree Requirements
The degree requirement shall consist of at least 25 semester hours of work at the graduate level, including


90 / University of Colorado at Denver
at least one seminar in each of three broad areas of political science—American, foreign, and theory—and at least one additional graduate seminar in political science. The other 13 hours may be distributed among other political science seminars the master’s thesis (4 hours), and a maximum of 9 hours combined in independent study and work in cognate disciplines (but not more than 6 hours of either).
Emphasis of the political science discipline at UCD is on critical perspectives, creative teaching and writing, interdisciplinary work, experiential involvement, and cooperative research projects. Close and continuing contact among students and between faculty and students is encouraged.
For further information contact Professor Michael Cummings, 629-2616.
PSYCHOLOGY
The M.A. degree in psychology at UCD can be obtained with a specialty in applied early child development, applied experimental, and psychometrics and counseling. A specialty in personnel psychology is under development; students interested in this area should obtain information directly from the Department of Psychology.
Requirements for Admission
Students wishing to be admitted to the M.A. program should be familiar with the Requirements for Advanced Degrees. Applicants must have a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university. The minimum GPA is 2.75, although a substantially higher GPA is typical of successful applicants. The GRE General Test and Subject Test in Psychology are required. In addition, the decision to admit an applicant is based on letters of recommendation, relevent work or research experience, and completion of required prerequisite courses for each specialty. Both full- and part-time students are encouraged to apply.
Degree Requirements
Students are required to complete 24 semester hours of course work and either a thesis or an internship in an approved agency setting.
Further information can be obtained from Dr. Linda McCabe, Psychology Graduate Admissions Adviser, 629-8350.
SOCIAL SCIENCE, MASTER OF
The Master of Social Science (M.S.S.) graduate degree program is designed to meet the needs of those individuals who want the flexibility to construct their own individualized course of studies. It is especially oriented toward interdisciplinary, urban, social action-focused education in the social sciences.
The program can provide (1) training for advancement in the profession of education, business, the helping professions, politics, and public service; (2) a basis for further graduate studies in a specific social science discipline
or professional field; (3) a means for teachers and other working students to tailor degree programs to fit their personal career development or on-the-job needs; (4) a nontraditional option for adults re-entering the University to pursue liberal education goals in the social sciences.
It is a 36-hour program, a significant part of which may include a work related project or internship. There are both thesis and nonthesis options. There are seven participating disciplines—anthropology, economics, geography, history, political science, psychology, and sociology— but some work may also be done in other disciplines, e.g., education, urban studies, communication, etc.

At present the only undergraduate program op erated solely by UCD is the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Faculty and Accreditation More than 280 highly qualified faculty members teach full time at UCD; 81 percent have doctoral degrees. The faculty is alert to the challenges of the urban environment and responsive tO the needs of the commuter student. UCD is accredited by or holds membership in th e following orgaruzauons : ACCREDITATION North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools American Society of Landscape Architects Initial Two Year Accreditation The College of Design and Planning is recognized by the American Planning Association National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Ed ucation National Architectural Accrediting Board See the College of Engineering and Applied Science section of this bulletin for the programs accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology National Association of Schools of Music MEMBERSHIP Association of Urban Universities American Assemb l y of Collegiate Schools of Business Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture and Collegiate Schools of Planning Council of University Institutes for Urban Affairs National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration Auraria Higher Education Center The Auraria Hig her Education Center is the site for the University of Colorado at Denver , Metropo lit an State College , and the Auraria campus of the Community College of Denver. The three institutions share library, classroom , and related facilities on the Auraria campus, a 168-acre site in downtown Denver. Certain courses and programs are cooperatively offered. On the Auraria campus are administrative and class room buildings , the Auraria Library, the student center , book center, child care and development centers, physical education facilities , science building , and service buildings. The new buildings share the campus with reminders of Denver ' s past-hisroric Ninth Street P ark, restOred church buildings, and the Tivoli brewery built in 1882. Equal Opportunity 1 Affirmative Action The University of Colorado at Denver adheres to a policy of equal opportunity in education and in employ ment . In pursuance of this policy, no UCD department, unit, discipline , or employee shall discriminate against an individual or group on the basis of race, sex, creed , color, age, national origin, or individual handicap . This policy applies tO all areas of the University affecting present and prospective students or employees. The institution ' s educational programs, activities, and services, offered tO students and j or employees are ad ministered on a nondiscriminatory basis subject to the provisions of Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. A UCD Equal Opportunity/ Affirmative Action Program has been established tO implement this policy . For in formation about these provisions on equity, discrimination, or fairness, consult the Affirmative Action Director at UCD . Research and Public Service All academic programs, public service, and research activities at UCD are geared to the needs of the urban population and environment, and tO concerns and issues of importance tO Colorado a nd the region . Activities in research and public service encompass both traditional and nontraditional fields of study, but predominately focus on issues that are related to Colorado needs. During 1980-81, UCD faculty received 68 awards tOtaling more than $4 million for research and public service programs. During 1981-82, the tOtal surpassed $6 million. These dollars , from public and private sources, support research and public service work which is of direct benefit tO the State of Colorado and have brought UCD into close working relations hip s with representatives of city, county , and state government units, as well as interested individual citizens. Current research activity covers such diverse areas as geotechnical engineering, environmental sciences, bilingual teacher training, mathematics t eacher training, community development and design , c ooperative education programs, and minority education projects. In engineering, UCD faculty are looking at soil behavior as it relates tO earthquakes, winds, and oceanic activity. They also are contributing tO design and safety plans in mine structures for oil shale processing and to construction techniques which would lengt h en the life and serviceability of highways. The Center for Environmental Sciences has grown rapidly since 1970 tO include a cluster of environmental projects related tO trace elements in oil shale , poll ut ion of ground water by uranium tailings, and ideas for renovating waste water. The work in this area has a direct impact on Colorado development issues and is conducted in close communication with both industry and various public interest groups in order tO consider environmental issues in a complete context . The National Hispanic Field Service Program is a multi insti tuti onal program led by UCD on behalf of 10 other universities. UCD and the other institutions strive to recruit Hispanic students into graduate public affairs programs and guide them into public management careers that will prepare them for leadership roles in communities with significant Hispanic populations . One of UCD ' s largest public service projects is the

FINANCIAL AID AT THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO AT DENVER The financia l aid program a t th e University is designed to assist those stude nts w h o would be unab l e to a ttend th e University with out assistance. While the primary r espo nsib ility for meeting the costs of education rests with individual students a nd their families, financia l aid funds a r e offered ro supplement whatever funds students and th eir families c an provide . Since requests ge nerally exceed th e avai l ability of funds , stude nts and their families should be awar e of proced ure s a nd de a dlines in or der to receive m a ximum consideration . Questions and requests for forms General Information I 9 should be directed to the Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment at UCD, Central Classroom Building , R oom 105, 629-2886. Estimated Expenses Educationa l expenses a t UCD include tuiti on, fees, and the cost of books and rela ted instructional materials. Students who do not live with th eir parents must also include th e cost of h o using a nd food expenses. All students should consi d e r tr anspor tation and personal expenditu res (i.e., clothing, entertainment , etc. ) in determining their expenses. The Office of Financial Aid establishes standard budgets for different types of students ( dependent students livin g at home with pare nts , single stude nts l iving away from h ome, married students , etc.) to bring about con sistency and equity in determining the financial needs of all students. The standard budgets are established in line with par a meters set by the C o l orado Commissi on on Hig h e r Educa ti on and the D epartment of Edu catio n . F o r th e 1983-84 aca demi c year the standard budgets allow $215 per m o nth living allowance for dependent stud e nts livin g at home , $495 per month for sing l e students no t livin g at home , and $73 8 per month for marri e d s tudents . An allowance of $ 1 3 0 per month was added per dependent chi ld in the student's hom e . The l ivin g allowance included amounts for rent , food , utilities, pers o n a l expenses, and transportation. The cost of tuition, fees, and medical expenses for the 198 2-83 acade mic year was 917 for a resident stud ent and $3, 537 for a nonresident student . Graduate students were assessed $7 41 as r eside nts and 3,706 as nonresidents. B ooks a nd supplies will be esti m a t ed at 290 for th e 1983-84 acade mic yea r . All expenses will increase slightl y for the 1983-84 academic year. The State of Color ado and the B oard of R egents usually set tuition g uidelines and rates during the month of May for the summer and acade mi c year . The s t andards for livin g allowances are usually set during the sp r ing semester for the following summer and academic year. Students who hav e add itional costs a b ove th e standa rd allowances can request a review of their situation by the Financial Aid Committee. The committee must receive d ocument a tion o f ex tra expenses an d can consider a n individual excepti o n to the standard a llowances. Examples of these kinds of excep tions are b a bysittin g expenses, medi cal costs, dental and optical expenses. Determination of Financial Need and Award Fin a n cial need is defined as the difference b etween th e cost of attenda nce as defi ned by the instit uti on (tui tion a nd fees, books and supplies, room and bo a rd , trans portation a nd essential incide nt al exp enses) and total resources avai l a ble ro th e student. These resources include a family contributi on ( summer savings , term earnings , a spouse contribution , a nd a parent a l contributi on) and awa rd s from agencies o utside the University. F i n a nci a l nee d is determi n ed by a nation a l uniform n eeds ana lysis system ad ministered by agencies such as the Ame r ican College Testing P rogram. This system a n a lyzes income and assets, family size, number of chi ldren

After the financial need is determined, students are ranked in order of financial need and are aided accordingly until all funds are committed. The financial aid package normally consists of a self-help component (loans andjor employment) and a gift aid component (grants) propor tionate to the available funds and to the number of needy students applying. A small portion of Colorado work study funds is available to interested students who do not document financial need . How to Apply Application forms may be obtained by contacting the Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment. Students are asked to complete an institutional application and a needs analysis form. The application includes a checklist of required documents to be submitted . Parents are expected to contribute toward a student' s educational costs. However , in certain cases students may be considered financially independent of their parents. To be eligible for financial aid as a self-supporting student, a student (1) cannot be claimed as a tax exemption, (2) cannot receive $750 or more , or (3) cannot live at home for more than six weeks for the year aid is received and for the entire preceding calendar year. For example, for a student to receive aid as a self-supporting student during the 1983-84 academic year, the above three criteria must be met for 1982 and 1983. Note: R equirements for receiving aid as a self-supporting student are subject to change by the federal and state governments . Self-supporting students must document their status by providing income tax forms or other supporting documents to show sufficient income to be self-supporting during the appropria te period of time. In some cases, additional documentation from parents is required to complete a student's application. The information provided on the applica tion for financial aid is analyzed according to the uniform needs analysis formula to determine the student's ability to contribute to his or her educational costs during rhe academic year. To be eligib le for financial aid, students must be U.S . citizens or permanent residents or have a refugee visa. Eligible foreign students are advised to include a photocopy of their visa cards with their applications to facilitate processing. In addition, students who are required to register for the draft through Selective Service must be registered in order to be eligible for federal finan cial aid for the 1983-84 academic year.

College of Design and Planning john M. Prosser, Acting Dean INFORMATION ABOUT THE COLLEGE The College of Design and Planning (formerly College of Environmental Design) at UCD offers five graduate programs : the Master of Architecture, Master of Archi tecture in Urban Design, Master of Interior Design, Master of landscape Architecture , and Master in Planning and Community Development ; and one service program, the Center for Community Development and Design . Un dergraduate programs in the College are available only through the University of Colorado at Boulder , and students interested in the Bachelor of Environmental Design degree should see the catalog for that campus. The College offers programs for cwo purposes: to train men and women who can meet the complex and demanding challenge of developing and shaping the environment , and to provide the practicing professional a means of keeping abreast o f cultural and technological changes. In recent years, the roles and responsibilities of the environmental design professions have broadened. The social and physical problems encountered by the architect, urban designer, the landscape architect, the planner, the technologist in environmental systems , and the interior designer have minimized the lines of demarcation among th ese professions and interdependence among them has incr e ased . The College maintains traditional and essential ties with the professions and practitioners in the community, and relies on local professionals to reinforce its teaching program. The College of Design and Planning is a member of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture and Collegiate Schools of Planning and is represented by its students , faculty, and alumni on various professional boards, committees, and societies. In 1982, the ational Archi tectural Accrediting Board renewed the College's accred itation for a five-year period. Its program in planning was granted renewed recognition by the American Planning Association in 1980 for a five-year period . In 1981, the landscape program received its initial two-year accreditation from the American Society of Landscape Architects. Full professional status in most environmental design fields generally requires a minimum of five or six years of academic experience and cwo or three years of practical experience followed by state registration or licensing through a professional examination . Qualifications for success in these careers are not easily measured . Candidates for this profession must have the ability to complete successfully an academic program ranging from fundamenta l h u manistic and scientific courses through applied technical activity co full creative deve l opment. They should have a background of secondary education that i ncludes courses in mathematics and phys ics. Some experience in creative activity may aid them in predetermining if persona l satisfaction is derived from t he creative process. Design and Planning Resource Center The Design and Planning Resource Center, a branch of the Auraria Library, serves as a learning r esource center for the design fields. It contains the following collections provided co s u pport the cur r icula of the College: I . Professio nal reference collection containing technical materials selected co support design and p l anning studio projects . 2 . Core collection of circu l ating materials comprised of standard works in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, interior design, and urban design. 3 . Collection of planning documents issued by local, regional, state, and federal agencies with an emphasis on materials pertaining co Colorado communities and concerns. 4 . Collection of periodica l s relating to the design fields. 5 . Reserve collection providing resource materials for required and s u pplemental class reading. 6 . Small, but growing, nonprint media collection whic h includes architec t ural slides, multi-media ki ts, microcom puter software, and microforms . In addition, the main Auraria Library houses background and research materials of inte r est to design and planning students and faculty ' including materials in the arcs, humanities, social sciences, and engineering. The branch library is open 55 hours per week, includ i ng some evening and weekend hours. The staff includes a librarian , one library assistant, and several student assistants. The branch library provides a number of services including reference and research assistance, library-use instruction, and circulation of materials . Additional services, such as interlibrary loans and computer assisted research, are pro vided through t he main Auraria Library . Computer-Aided Instruction The College established a computer-aided instruction laboratory in the fall of 1981. The laboratory has micro and mini-computers with access to computers on other campuses. The computers are being used in the areas of

Model Shop and Photo Laboratory The College maintains a darkroom for student use as well as a variety of camera and audiovisual equipment. These facilities are valuable aides in preparing class presen tations, design projects, portfolios, and in learning multi media techniques for presentations . The model shop is available for use in fabricating architectural models and in furnitu r e design projects. A staff technician is on duty ro assist students in the use of these facilities. Financial Aid Graduate scholarships and fellowships are available ro continuing students only, with the exception of Colorado Grams. A limited number of Colorado Grants are available co new students who are residents of the state of Colorado and who fulfill the University's criteria for financial need. Forms to apply for State of Colorado Graduate Grants , Federal Work-Study Assistance, and Federal Nation a l Direct Student Loans (NDSL) are available through the Office of Financial Aid, UCD, 1100 14th Street, Denver , co 80202. Grade-Point Average Requirement and Scholastic Suspension Students must maintain a 3. 0 average for a degree. Students who fail ro meet the minimum requirements during any semeste r will be permitted ro continue their studies during the second semester, but will be placed on probation. Students who fail ro meet the minimum requirement after two semesters will be suspended. After a period 'of one year, appeal for readmission may be made by petitioning the Scholastic Deficiency Committee of the College or the direc tor . Special Students Beginning with fall 1981, the College of Design and Planning accepts only up ro 16 credit hours of courses t ake n as a graduate special student for application roward degree credit. Foreign Students To better serve foreign students who are considering a second professional degree, the College has begun a policy of admitting stude nts coming directly from overseas into the spring semester only. Applications for all programs must be received by March 15 of the preceding year. All ocher application requirements must be mer. Residence Requirement A student must be in residence for at least one full academic year's work, which is norm a lly 30 semester hours. Time Limit Beginning with fall 1981 , students in two-year programs must comp l ete all work required for a graduate degree within a five-year period from the rime of first enrolling for classes as a degree candidate. Students in three-year programs must complete all work within a six-year period . Elective Courses Elective courses must be at the 300 level or above. Students should check with their respeaive direaor re garding subject choices. MASTER OF ARCHITECTURE The Division of Architecture offers three degree pro grams, all of which lead ro the Master of Architecture . The three programs are named by typical time-in-residence : three-year, two-year, and one-year programs. The three and two-year programs lead ro the first professional degree for architectural practice; the one-year program leads to a second professional degree. The one-year program is open only to applicants already holding the first professional degree in architecture (generally the bachelor's, occasionally the master's) and entails a minimum of 32 credit hours . Individually organized studies are focused on the student's interests in architecture or in architecture with an energy specialization. The two-year program is open to holders of the Bachelor of Environmental Design or Architectural Studies degree and is arranged to receive graduates of the Division of Environmental Design at Boulder or similar undergraduate studies ar ocher schools an d entails a minimum of 64 credit hours. The three-year program is open to holders of rhe bachelor's degree in all ocher fields and typically requires 96 credit hours for completion. Curriculum The Division of Architecture is a professional school; irs role and purpose is rhe education of men and women who wish ro desig n buildings . The division provides studies in architectural design, graphic communications, history and theory, technology, and professional practice. Architectural design is the central activity of the several programs and rhe design studio serves to integrate ar chitect ural l earni ng from all course work in the supportive arts and sciences. Most studios are conducted on the case study method; skill in the definition and the solution of design problems is acquired through the analysis and the working of exercises which simulate actual building prob l ems. Advanced studio options are available with projects in the Center for Community Development and Design . The design thesis is the culmination of architectural studies. Communications courses provide the graphic skills necessary to present design ideas. History and theory courses anchor the stude nt 's work in social responsibility, and in an understanding of the forces that give shape to buildings and cities. Technology courses give basics in structures, and in the environmental concerns of utilities, heating , lighting, and acoustics. Professional courses provide ex posure ro the workings of contemporary practice , and an internship in a practicing professional's office is a course option in the final year. The goal of all of these studies is competency for the

The curricula focus on the complex problems that are genera ted by change and growth in a v i gorous urban and regional labor atory . Emphasis is given to participatory community and publicly funded design, research , and technology. Special efforts are made ro use the vast resources available from federal, state, and local agencies and institutions which are concentrated in the immediate comm unity. Specific courses and projects are arranged to incorporate these allied academic, civic, and citizen inputs into the design processes. The sequential format, conte nt , and progression of the Architecture in Urba n Desi gn program has been developed to provide a broad range of study which combines architecture, landscape, planning, urban design, business, and public affairs methodologies. Dire ct contact and coor dination with the activities of the students and faculty in these disciplines is an essential part of the curriculum. Importance is given to the problem-solving processes associated with mixed use comp lexes, neighborhood, activity center, village, town, mainstreet, and cityscape projects. Specific courses in urban technologies, urban theories, environmental impac t analysis, including social and economic planning factors, are avai lable . Options Two sequences are available in the program. The one year program is for students who hav e obtained a five-year Bach e lor of ArchiteCture degree. The other is a non prelicensing two-year gr a duate degree for students who have received a bachelor's degree in environmental design , landscape , architeCtural studies, planning , business, engi neering, social sciences, or urban studies . In both sequences, studio and / or field work is the focal point for the specialization selected by the student. The projects chosen are developed on an independent study basis . Meetings, seminars , and evaluations are scheduled between the student and the faculty advisers . Cognate courses are selected with the guidan c e of the faculty advisers from related subjects offered by the College or other units of the University. Postprofessional In the one-year program, th e thesis sequence is a synthesis of the special factors influencing urban design in one of five options: recreational facilities, comm unity development , rehabilitation or renewal , transportation, and health care . In this phase students are carefully advised throughout the period of their independent research and design studies . Opportunities to do state and city outreach work in association with the Center for Community Development and Design (the College state-wide design aid field program for ethnic and economic minorities) are available or heavily emphasized . Many other real problems and jor case studies from the community, which require anticipatory and feasibility design and development, also are considered. During the final sequence semester of the one-year program, students have a wide choice of profes sional electives which can be closely related to their thesis problem selection. Whenever possible , individual or team projects in cooperation with allied disciplines and institutions are encouraged . A degree is awarded upon satisfactory completion of 3 0 semester credit hours minimum. The program is structured for students who wish ro pursue advanced studies in compound , complex community architeCture and urban design problems. The one-year program leading to the Master of Ar chitecture in Urban Design degree is available to students holding a first professional degree in architeCture . The degree is a warded upon satisfaCtory completion of 30 semester credit hours minimum. The program is for students who wish to pursue advanced studies in compound, complex community architecture and urban design problems.

46 / University of Colorado at D enver assume responsible leadership roles in the continuing growth of the profession and in the improvement of the quality of mankind's near environment by constructive l y relating the design process to mankind's l ife processes. There are two prog r ams leading to the Master of Interior D esign degree. The two-year program is open to applicants holding Bachelor of Interior D esign, Bachelor of Envi ronmental Design, or B achelor of Architecture degrees . The three-year prog r am is designed for applicants holding bachelor ' s degrees in other fields from accredited four year colleges or universities. The program is characteristical l y unique in the following ways: Multidisciplinary Approach. Individualized instruction and guidance are provided to help students acquire skills and knowledge integrated from rel ated disciplines. Ac cordingly , the student develops personal models and meth odologies within a multidisciplinary conceptual framework , acquiring the tools needed for ana lysis, design, and eval u ation of interior environmen ts. Interior Design Orientation. The_program rel ies heavily upon the conviction that the desi gn of an interior space and the building form containing it are inextricably related. The former inwardly responds to the human environment, the laner outwardly responds to the natural environment. Both design activities require high degrees of interdependent specialization before designs are skillfully integrated. Social and Behavioral Base. Understanding the social, behavioral, and biological implications of man-environment interactions is emphasized as an integral part of design research j problem-so l ving methods in all design studio work. Coordinat e d Universit y -Professional Community Learning Exp eriences. The program is a direct response to the Rocky Mountain region's ge n era l recognition of a need for designers whose professional training is relevant to regional interests. In turn , the professional community serves as an auxiliary source of educational enrichment by providing students with opportunities to combine theoretical and applied learning.

Urban and rural development pressure in the western r eg ion has c reat ed a n urgent need for comprehensive lands cape problem-solving skills. These skills include an und e rstandin g of the earth sciences which dete r mine the arid region concept of " environmental limits and tOler ances." The p rocesses described in these related earth sciences provide a reg i onal concept for designing and planning l an dsc a pe for public and private use , human enrichment, and resource conservation. Two programs are offered leading ro the Master of L a nds cape Ar chi tecture degree. Students entering t he pro gram with ou t a first professional degree are requir e d to t ake a minimum o f 96 h ours. This is essentially a thr eeyear program .

Thes e rwo programs offer the ca ndidate an opportunity ro d evelop an elective package , parallel ro the M.L.A. core c urriculum , which would give the student the equiv alent of a related professional minor . The electives are included in the hour requir e ments for both the rwoand three-y ear programs. A thesis is required of all M . L.A . candidates. The thesis is th e c ulmination of the academic curriculum. M ore specifically, the thesis sequ e nce requirement comprises three courses: R esea r c h Methods for Designers and Planners, L a nds cape Architecture Thesis Research , and Landscape Arc hitecture Thesis. The thesis ma y be a design , research , nat u ral resource, or community development topic , and each must include a case study proof. The Curr i culum The curriculum has been planned to include those awa r enesses and ski ll s considered essential to cor e and advanced professional training in the field of landscape architecture. These areas incl ude concentration in design , land and building technology , history and theory of the built environment, and a working knowledge of natural systems. The primary focus of the program is DESIGN and the design process. Opportunities exist to develop complementary knowl edge and skills related to interdisicplinary projects involving the other Coll ege of Design and Planning programs in Architecture , P l anning and Community Development, In te r ior Design , and Architecture i n Urban Design. Addi t i onally , through the Center for Community Deve l opment and Design (CCDD is an o utreach program in the College of Design and Planning) , the M . L.A. candidate is afforded the opportunity for actual project experience either in the Denver metropolitan are a or the State of Colorado. The hierarchy of courses from term to term for the most part is planned sequentially leading ro the thesis . T h e thesis is intended to be a comprehensive individual experience under the guidance of the entire L.A. faculty and app lica ble outside specialists .

Because D enver is the Rocky Mountain West's central location for managing and planning these fields of action, UCD planning students are often able ro combine learning general principles a nd skills in the classroom with practical working experience in nearby operating agencies and organizat ions . The program welcomes part-time and non traditional students. Curriculum The curriculum requires 60 semester hours as a minimum for graduation. Forty-five of these semester hours are required core courses aimed at training the student in basic planning purposes , principles, content, resea r ch meth ods, techniques and implementation . Of these required credits, 3 are spent in experiential learning and internships with public agencies and other organizations. Three plan making studios are requir ed with the one possibility being an integrated studio with the other design division in the College, and the last studio being a thesis . Another 15 credit hours of the curriculum a r e elective . They are chosen in consultation with the student ' s faculty adviser ro form a consistent pattern of planning expertise along the lines of the individual's major interests. The courses may be chosen from the MPCD 's own core electives, from other programs in the College of Design and Pl anning, or from other g raduate schools at UCD and th e metro area. Typical areas of specialization have been land use, transportation , planning administration, community de velopment, regional planning , urban design , social services, energy, and health planning. Admission Requirements Application forms must be submitted by March 15 for the fall semester. Entry into the program at other times is not normally permitted. Applications for admission are reviewed by a faculty-student committee. Criteria for admis sion include academic performance, work experience , interest, and motivation for study. Application forms and information may be obtained by writing to DirectOr , Planning and Community De velopment Program, College of Design and Planning , University of Colorado at Denver , 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202. SPECIAL ACADEMIC PROGRAM To provide unusual educationa l and practical experiences for outstanding students in all five graduate divisions , the College has establis hed an optional, integrated, multidiscip linary studio . These classes are offered fall semesters ro final-year students who choose ro work on unique public and private actual design and planning projects for which the College has been asked to provide educational, technical , and research assistance . During th e last six years, more than 2 5 of these comprehensive studies have been completed by t eams of students for rowns, comm unities , neighbor hoods , institutions , agencies , and companies. The studio is j oin tl y taught by faculty from the five professional divisions and the Center for Community Development and Desi gn. CENTER FOR COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND DESIGN The Center for Community Development and Design provides educational and technical assistance to solve design, planning, and community development problems upon request ro groups, organizations, neighborhoods commu nities, and small towns that cannot afford or do not have access ro these services . The center provides these services ro aid in the development of the community and to encourage local self-reliance. These services are provided by faculty-student research and assistance teams . A central goal of the center is ro combine academic and practical experience of students working wit h com munity members on problem solving through supervised projects in the field. The faculty and staff of the center coordinate comm unity projeas for which students register through classes in the various academic curricula. Students who register for thes e projects assume an added respon sibility of satisfying client needs that goes beyond academic credit. Students are expected ro do two things: utilize and develop professional expertise which not only enhances their own education but also better prepares them to assist in the community problem-solving process, and to develop an understanding for com munity participatory processes and be able ro integrate these into the technical aspeas of their comm unity projea. The types of projects students may select to work on include developing a physica l design program for a child care center in an inner-city neighborhood; assisting a neighborhood to organize, design, and implement a self help housing program in a small mountain town ; and deve l oping a comprehensive plan in cooperation with a planning comm ission in a Colorado high plains rown. Mainstreets Program A joint effort by UCD and the State Department of Local Affairs, this innovative program provides assistance to small towns attempting co resrore the economic viability of their retail cores. Interdisciplinary teams of students will work closely with the communities ro address planning, design, and economic development issues (see urban design program options). Please refer ro the Master of Architecture in Urban Design program for Mainstreets. Community Research Center Conducting applied social science research on the struc ture and dynamics of communities-whether inner city,

College of Engineering and Applied Science Paul E. Bartlett , Resident Dean INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROFESSION Through engineering the resources of nature are used for the benefit of humanity and the environment. Engineers today are expected not only ro be competent planners and designers of technical systems, but significant con triburors ro the betterment of the environment in the social and hum anis tic sense as well. Engineering professional societies have committed themselves ro the principle that, as mankind gains the ability ro build more powerful machines and more useful devices, there must be a strong and successful effort ro protect natural resources and the environment. An engineering career demands hard work, and so does an engineering education. In return engineers have excellent opportunities ro work in various places, meet new chal lenges , or move upward in management . The engineer is generally well paid and usually in demand; in the rare times when there is a surplus of certain kinds of engineers, individuals usually have little difficulty finding attractive opportunities in other field's. Currently, registration is required in all states for the legal right ro practice professional engineering. Although there are variations in the state l aws, graduation from an accredited curricu lum in eng ine ering, subscription ro a code of ethics, and four years of qualifying experience are required. In addition, two days of examinations covering the engineering sciences and the applicant's practical ex perience are r eq uired in most states. A listing of the fields in which engineers work would have many hundreds of e ntries . The following list gives only a brief summary. The aerospace engineering sciences prepare engineers for an industry chat encompasses the design and construction of both commercial and military aircraft and the devel opment and fabrication of space vehicles . Advances in this technology have permitted the industry ro enter also the fields of urban mass transit, undersea exp l oration, bio engineering, nuclear engineeri ng , laser technology , and many ocher emerging high technology fields. An aerospace engineer often works at the forefront of engineering with scientists in the fields of mathematics , physics, chemistry, biology, ere. Applied mathematics meets the need of modern research, which is dependent upon advanced mathematical concepts. Almost all concerns that are engaged in industrial and scientific research today need applied mathematicians, as do organizations involved in computational work, statistical analysis, or srochastics . Architectural engineering involves work within the build ing industry in engineering design , construction and con tracting, or sales engineering. Areas of speci a lization are: constru c tion engineering, environmental engineering, or structura l engineering. Chemical engineers convert natural resources into in dustrial and consumer prod ucts in facilities that include refineries and gasification plants . Among their products are many that often are not identified with chemical engineering-oils, metals, glass, plastics, rubber, paints, soaps and detergents, foods, beverages , synthetic and natural fibers, nuclear and exotic fuels , medicines, and many others. Civil eng ineering offers an interesting and challenging career in the design and construction of buildings , bridges, dams, aqueducts, and other structures; in transportation systems including highways , canals, pipelines, airports, rapid transit lines, railroads, and harbor facilities; in the transmission of water and the control of rivers; in the development of water resources for urban use , industry, and land reclamation; in the control of water quality through water purification and proper waste treatment ; in the construction and contracting industry; and in the problems concerned with mankind 's physical environment a nd the growt h of cities. Electrical engineering offers professional possibilities that include teaching and research in a university; research in development of new electrical or electronic devices, in struments, or products; design of equipment or systems; production and quality-control of electrical products for private industry or government; and sales or management for a private firm . or branch of government. There are numerous specia lties withi n electrical engineering. Among them are the design of computer systems and computer software; electromagnetic fields, which are basic ro radio, television , and related systems; communication theory and signal processing; electrica l machinery; solid-state , inte grated-circuit, and electron devices; energy and power control systems; and others. Electrical engineering and computer science involves work in computer engineering and computer science, including design and construction of efficient software systems as well as hardware design and manufacture. The application of microprocessors ro many areas of engineering has opened new doors in computer engineering and computer science. The engineering physicist works where new kinds of engineering are being born, or where many fields are being used jointly. General knowledge of the diverse fields of physics provides the ability ro deal with industrial problems

char cannot be so l ved by a standardized procedure in a specialized field. Mechanical engineering is very broad in scope, not identified with or resrricted to a particular technology, vehicle , device, or system bur instead is concerned with all such subjecrs, both individually and collectively. Typical scarring assignments for the graduating senior include positions with oil, construction, and automotive indusrries . INFORMATION ABOUT THE COLLEGE The College of Engineering ar the University of Colorado offers a coral of 18 engineering bachelor degree programs through the following eleven departments located on three campuses-Boulder (UCB), Denver (UCD), and Colorado Springs (UCCS). Aerospace Engineering Sciences (Boulder) Chemi ca l Engineering (Boulder) Civil and Urban Engineering (Denver) Civil , Environmental, and Archirecrural Engineering (Boulder) Computer Science (Boulder) Electrical and Computer Engineering (Denve r ) E l ectrical Engineering (Boulder) Elecrrical Engineering and Computer Science (Colorado Springs) Mechanical Engineering (Bou ld er) Mechani ca l Engineering (Denver) Mathematics (Colorado Springs) The 18 Bachelor of Science academic degree programs are offered as follows: 9 in Boulder , 5 in Denver, and 4 in Colorado Springs. Undergraduate Degree Programs The College of Engineering and Applied Science at UCD offers four -yea r programs leading to the B .S. degree in civil engineering, electrical engineering, electrical en gineering and computer science, mech a nical engineering, and applied mathematics. The civil, electrica l , and me c h anical engineering programs are currently accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of th e Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Availability of Degree Programs The University of Colorado at Denver (UCD) will accept for matriculation o nly chose prospective engineering srudents who designate a degree program awarded by the UCD Coll ege of Engineering and Applied Science . For 1983-84, the following engineering degrees are awarded by UCD: civi l engineering, mechanical engineer ing , elec trical engineering, electrical engineering and computer sci ence, and applied mathematics . Srudents desiring degree programs ocher chan chose named above muse apply co rhe campus awarding the degree. In some cases, the University campus accepting the student may gram per mission co r a ke cou rses on another CU campus, subject co enrollment limitations. In such cases, the engineering department of the admitting campus will counsel the student in the preparation of course schedules. College of Engineering and Applied Science / 53 The course requirements during the freshman year are essentially the same throughout the College of Engineering and Applied Science. About two-thirds of the sophomore year is common ro all, and the remainder of the courses begin co point to the various fields of enginee rin g taught; r ea l specializatio n begins, however , in th e junior year and carries on through the senior year . A fifth year of srudy leading to the master ' s degree is strongly urged for students of more chan usual abi lity who feel they can profit from additio nal srudy. At UCD it is also possib l e for a srudent to obta in a bachelor's degree in enginee ring and a bachelor ' s degree in business in five years plus one or two summer terms. Any of the engineering deg ree programs ca n be modified for an exce llent premedical program . If liberal arts srudents elect certai n courses in science, mathematics, and enginee ring as undergraduates , they may earn an engineering degree in four semesters after graduation from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences . Graduate Degree Programs UCD offers graduate degree programs in civil engi n eering, comp uter science, electrical engineeri ng, mechanical engineering, and applied mathematics . For information regarding courses and requirements l eading co the Master of Engineering , Master of Science, or ro rhe Ph . D . degree , see th e Graduate School section of chis bulletin. Summer Courses Summer term courses are planned for regular srudents and chose who must clear deficiencies. Courses also are offered for high school graduates who wish co enter as freshmen and for those w h o need co remove sub j ect deficiencies . For information about courses, students shou ld write to the resident dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Science , UCD, for the Schedule of Summer C o urses. For some students there are advantages in starting their college careers during the summer term. Some required freshman and sophomore courses are normally offered ar UCD Juring rhe summer. The summer term gives students a head starr and enables them to take a lighter load during the fall semester or rake additional courses co enrich their program . Scholarships, Fellowships, and Loan Funds Money cont ribut ed co the University D eve lopment Foun dation for assistance to engi neerin g srudents is deposited in appropria te accounts and used according co the restrictions imposed by the donors . Numerous industries march em ployee contrib utions . A list of companies contributing co scho l arships and fellowships and different loan funds available can be obtained from the dean's office. Student Organizations A general student o r ganiza tion , known as the Associa t ed Engineering Srudents (AES), of which all students in rhe College are members, has supe r vision of matters of interest co rhe whole group.

UCD currently offers the following programs: civil engineering, electrical e ngineering , electrica l engineering and computer science, mechanical engineering, and applied mathematics. Persons of sufficient maturity and experience who do not meet the prescribed requirements for admission may be admitted upon approval of t h e resident dean. Beginning students in engineering should be prepared to start analytic geometry-calcu l us. No credit coward a degree in engineer i ng or applied mathematics will be given for algebra, trigonometry , or precalculus mathematics (Math. 10 1, 111, 1 12, a nd 113) bur these courses will be offered t o allow a student ro make up defi ciencies. Any student who questions the adequacy of his or her pre-college background in mat h ematics should see the applied m a thematics coordinatOr for suggestions. A diag nosnc test covermg prec alc ulus mathematics will be avail able, prior to registration , ro assist new freshmen in selecting the appropriate beginning mathematics course. To be prepared for the type of mathematics courses that will be taught, the student must be competent in the basic ideas and skills of ordinary a lgebra, geometry and plane trigonometry .

Tr ansf e r S tuden t s . Stud_ents transf erring from other accredited collegiate msmuuons may be considered for admission on an in dividual basis if they meet the requirements outlined in the General Information section of this bulletin and the freshman requirements for entering the College of Engi neering and Applied Science. lntrauniversity transf ers within the same campus of the University to the College of Engineering and Applied Science will be considered on an individua l basis if both of the following conditions are fulfilled: I . Enrollment limitations permit. 2. The student's prior academic record fulfills the admissions requirements of the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Intercampus transfers of students from one campus of the University to another will be considered on an individual basis if the following condit i ons are fulfilled: 1. Enrollment limitations permit. 2 . The student has a minimum of 30 hours m an enginee ring curriculum at that campus, not counting transfer h ours. 3 . If an engineering student, the student is in good academic standing with at l east a 2.0 cumulative grade point average for all courses attempted and for all courses that count coward graduation requirements.

lmerdep arrmen tal tr ansfers, whether on the same campus or from one campus to another within the College of Engineering , require the approval of both the gaining and losing deparrmems in addition to the imercampus and intrauniversity transfer requirements listed above. Some course sequences should be completed before transferrin g to ano ther campus; therefore, it is strongly recommended that students who contemplate transferring campuses see their department adviser prio r t o initiating the transf er request. Both intrauniversity and intercampus transfers are subject co review by a faculty committee which evaluates the applicant's qualifications for academic success in engineering subjects. TRA N SFER CREDI T After a prospective transfer student has made application and submitted transcripts to the University of Colorado , the Office of Admissions and Records issues a Statement of Advan ced Standing (currently Form 382) listing those courses that are acceptable by University standards for transfer. A copy of this statement is received by the resident dean ' s office at the time the student is admitted by the Office of Admissions and Records and is made a parr of the permanent record. The appropriate engineering faculty departmental representative will use this copy of the form co indicate which of those credits listed may be acceptable coward the 136-hour graduation requirement in the College of Engineering and Applied Science and note the tentative acceptance of these credits by dating a nd initialin g each acceptable course listed on the Statement of Advan ced Standing. The student will be notified that the acceptance is cemative and is contingent upon sacis facrory completion of a minimum of 30 semester hours at the University of Colorado before th e credits may be officially applied coward the degree requir e ments . It is the responsibilit y of transfer students, after having completed the 30 semester credit hours at the University of Colorado, to 1equest final validation of the credits by their department and to have this validation noted on the Statement of Advanced Standin g kept in the resident dean ' s office. If at any time a student wishes co have a course not previously accepted considered again for transfer, the student should consu lt with the departmental transfer adviser and complete a petition co the resident dean through the departmem c hairman . All transfer credit must be validated by satisfactory achievement in subsequent courses. NONTRA NSFE RABLE C REDIT S Students desiring co transfer credits from engineering technology programs should note that such credits are accepted only upon the submission of evidence that the work involv ed was fully equivalent co that offered in chis College . There are technology courses given with titles and textbooks idemical to chose of some engineering courses. These may still not be equivalent co engineering courses because of emphasis that is nonmathemacical or otherwise dive r gent. In order co assist engineering technology students with transfer planning, the following guidelines have been established: College of Engineering and Applied S cience / 55 Courses on basic subjects such as mathematics , physics, lit erature, or history may be acceptable for direct transfer of credit if they were taught as parr of an accredited program for all students and were not specifically designated for technology students. tudents who have taken t echno l ogy courses (courses with technology designations) that may be valid equivalents for enginee ring courses have these options: l. They may petition faculty advisers to waive the requirement for the course. The requirement for a course can be waived if students demonstrate that , by previous course work, individual study, or work experience they have acquired th e background and training normally provided by the course. No credit is given coward grad uation for a waived course, but students may benefit from th e waiver by being able to include more advanced work l ater in their curriculum. Ocher students may profit by t aking the course at this College instead and thus establish a fully sound basis for w hat follows . 2. Credit for a course may be given if the course work was done a t a n accredited institution of higher education. The University of Colorado department involv ed may recommend that credit be transferred co count coward the requirements for a related course in its curriculum . Credit canno t be given for vocational-technical or remedial courses under rules of the University. (See section on transfer of college-level credit in the General Information section of this bulletin.) 3. Students may seek c redit for the course by exam manon . ACADEMIC POLICIES Refer co the General Information section of this bulletin for descriptions of University-wide policies . The following policies apply specifically to the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Advanced Placemen t Advanced placemem credit may be granted by special examination of the department involved or by College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) rests. If the applicant has scored 4 or 5 on the CEEB Advanced Placement Examination, credit toward graduation may be awarded. Students who have scored 3 may be considered for advanced placement by the department concerned. All advanced placement and transfer credit must be validated by sat isfactory achievement in subsequent courses, in accordance with standard transfer policies of the College . Advanced placement credit for the freshman mathematics courses in calculus will be limited to not more than 4 hours each. A ttendance Regulat i ons Successful work in the College of Engineering and Applied Science is dependent upon regular attendance in all classes. Students who are unavoidably absent should make arrange ments with instructors to make up the work missed . Students who , for illness or other good reason , miss a final examination must notify the instructor or the resident dean's office no later than the end of the day

Changing Departments Students who wish co change co anot her department within the College of Engineering and Applied Science must apply for transfer by submitting a Change of Major for Undergraduate Degree St udent s form which must have th e approval of both departments concerned. (See also Jiscussion of interdepartmental transfer requirements under Transfer Students.) College-Level Examination (CLEP) Credit Prospective students may earn college-level credit through the College-Level Examination Pro gram (CLEF) subject examinations , provided that they score at the 67th percentile or above . Departments will advise students of the credits accepted for such courses . The number of cred its so earned must be within the limit s of the number of elective hours of the individual department. A list of subjects in which CLEP examination credit will be accepted may be obtained from the College of Engineering and Applied Science office. (See also College-Level Examination Program in the General Information section of this bulletin . ) (CLE P general examinations are not acceptable.) Counseling Freshman students are counseled by the resident dean's office and by representatives from each academic depart ment. These representatives are readily available co assist students with academic, vocational , or personal concerns. Students are assigned specific departmental advisers for academic planning and should consult with the depart mental chairman or designated representative for assig n ment . Course Load Policy Full-time Students. Undergraduate students employed less chan 10 hours per week should register for the regular work as outlined in the departmental curricula. Additional courses may be allowed when there is satisfactory evidence that these extra courses can be taken profitably and creditably. Permission to take more than 21 h ours may be granted only afte r written petition and approval of the departmental chairman and the resident dean. Employed Students. Suggested maximum course loads for undergraduate students employed 10 or more hours per week are as follows: Employed 40 or more hour s per week two courses (maximum of 9 semester hours) Employed 30 to 39 hours per week-three courses (maximum of 12 semester hours) Employed 20 ro 29 hours per week-four courses (max imum of 15 semester hours) Employed 10 to 19 hours per week-five courses (maximum of 18 semester hours) Freshman Year Fundamentals taught in the freshman year are of prime importance in the more adva nced classes, and every effor t is made to register a beginning freshman in the proper courses. (Course requirements for freshmen are detailed within the c urriculum given under each department.) All fre shmen are urged co consult their instructors whenever they need help in their assignments. Repetition of Courses A student may not register for credit in a course in which h e already has received a grade of C or better. When a student takes a course for credit more than once, all grades ar e used in determining the grade point average. An F gr a de in a r e quired c ourse nec essitates a subsequent satisfactory comp l etion of the course . No Credit An engineering student must petition for approval before enrolling no credit (NC) for any course. Once a course has been taken NC, the c ourse c a nnot be repeated for credit . Work Experience It is the policy of the College of Engineering and Applied Science that an y credits accrued in the official records of the student that were awarded for work experience (or for Cooperative Education experience) will not apply as part of the 13 6 semester hours required for an engineering degree. Policy on Academic Progress The following is a statement of the Policy on Academic Progress in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. An overall average of 2.0 or better , in hours taken at the Universiry of Colorado toward graduation requirements, is necessary to remain in good standing in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Grades earned at another instituti o n are not used in calcul a ting the grade-point average at the Universiry of Colorado. However, grades earned in another school or college within the Universiry of Colorado will be used in determining the student ' s scholastic standing and prog ress coward the Bachelor of Science degree in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Students whose overall average falls below 2.0 will be placed on probation for the next semes t er in which they are enrolled in the College and will be so notified . If, after that semester the student's average is still below 2 . 0, the student will be suspended from the College. The following is additiona l information and interpre tation of the policy: 1. Students who have been suspended are suspended indefinitely and may not enroll at any Universiry of Colorado campus during any regular academic year, Sep tembe r through May, bur may enroll i n summer sessions or Vacation College and j or may take correspondence courses for credit through the Division of Continuing Education . 2 . Students who have been suspended may apply for readmission if they bring their Universiry of Colorado cumulative average up co a 2.0 through summer session, Vacation College, and j or correspondence work applying co engineering degree requirements as approved by a member of the Academic Pro gress Committee. 3 . A student, upon satisfactorily completing at another college or universiry a minimum of 12 semester hours of acceptable work appropriate to an engineering curriculum

PAGE 65

subsequent co suspension, may apply for readmission as a transfer student. 4. Applicants for readmission to the University of Col orado cannot be assured readmission. 5. During a probation semester the student m u s t com plete a normal load, i.e., 12 hours or more (for a full time student) of courses counting toward g r aduation requirements . Physical education courses do not count; if the student has previously comp l eted 6 hours of ROTC courses, ROTC courses do not count; if 24 hours of social-humanistic subjects have been completed, social humanistic subjects do not count. 6. Students who have been on probation or suspension at any time in the past will automatically be suspended if their overall average again fall s below a 2.0. Details of the probationary and suspension status and of the conditions for return to good academic standing will be stipulated in the letters of probation and s u spension. Information regarding these matters may be obtained in the Office of the Resident Dean, Room UA 516. Academic Ethics (Dishonesty, Cheating) Students are expected co conduct themselves in ac cordance with the highest standards of honesty and integrity . Cheating, plagiarism, illegitimate possession and disposition of examinations, alteration, forgery, or falsification of official records, and similar acts or attempts to engage in such acts are grounds for suspension or expulsion from the University. In particular, students are advised that plagiarism consists of any act involving the offering of the work of someone e lse as the student's own. It is recommended that students consu l t with their instructors as to the proper preparation of reporrs , papers, etc., in order to avoid this and similar offenses . At UCD there is a Code of St u dent Conduct. A copy of the code a nd information regarding all student grievance procedures may be obtained in the Dean of Student Affairs Office. Grading System, lncompletes, Pass/Fail and Drop / Add Procedures See the General Information section of this bulletin for the University of Colorado uniform grading system and for additional pass j fail informa t ion and drop j add pro cedures. Also see the current S c hedul e of Courses. GRADING SY ST E M It is particularly important co note that in the College of Engineering and Applied Science courses to be counted toward fulfilling the 136-hour graduation requirement ccmnot be taken no credit (NC). I N COMP L E TES An incomplete may be given by the instructor for circumstances beyond the student's contro l , such as a documented medical or personal emergency. When it is given, the student, the resident dean 's office, and the departmental office are informed , in writing, by the instructor what the student is co do in order co remove the incomplete and when the tasks are to be completed. College of Engineering and Applied Science / 57 The instructor may assign only the IfF grade. The student is expected co complete the course requirements, e.g., the final examination and term paper, within the established deadline and not to retake the entire course. The grade will be converted aucomatically to a grade of F after one year unless the specified work is completed. PASS/FAIL The primary purpose for offering courses on a pass/ fail grade basis is to encourage students, especially juniors and seniors, to broaden their educational experience by electing challenging courses without serious risk co their academic records. In general pass j fail should be limited co 300or 400-level courses. Students must process the pass jfail form during the first two weeks of the semester. Engineering students cannot take required courses pass/ fail. Below are specific pass jfail regulations for the College of Engineering and Applied Science. 1. A maximum of 16 passjfail hours may be included in a student's total program. A maximum of 6 hours may be taken in one semester , but it is recommended that not more than one course at a time be taken pass/ fail. 2: Courses that a student may elect co take pass j fail shall be designated and approved in advance by the student's major department . If courses not so designated are taken, t h e earned grade will be recorded in p lace of the P or F grade. An engineering student who has not designated a major field will not be allowed the passjfail option without approval through the resident dean's office. 3. A transfer student may count coward graduation one credit hour of pass jfail for each 9 credit hours completed in the College; however, the maximum number of pass j fail hours counting coward graduation shall not exceed 16, including courses taken in the Honors Program under that program 's pass jfail grading system. 4. Students on academic probation should not enroll for pass j fail courses. DROP / ADD See the General Information section of this bulletin for drop j add procedures. Only u nder very ext enuating cir cumstances will petitions for dropping courses be considered after the tenth week of the semester . Sequence of Courses Full-time students should complete the courses in the department in which they are registered according co the curriculum shown under the i r major department in this bulletin. Part time students may need co modify the order of courses with adviser approval. Any required course failed should be repeated as soon as the course is offered agam. Students who receive a grade of D or F in a course that is prerequisite co another may not register for the succeeding course unless they h ave the permission of both the department and the instructor of the succeeding course . Students may enroll for as much as 50 percent of their courses in work that is not a part of the prescribed curricula of the College of Engineering and App lied Science, provided they have at least a 2.0 grade average in all

Graduation With Honors In recognition of high scholas ti c and professiona l at tainments, Honors or Special Honors (at the discretion of the Engineering Honors and Recognition Committee) will be awarded at grad u ation . These honors will be recp rded on the diplomas of the grad u a tes receiving them and indicated in the commencement program. Social-Humanistic Content of the Engineering Curriculum The facu lty of the College of Engineering and Applied Science requires chat 2 4 semester h ours should be considered the minimum of social-humanistic content of th e degreegranting departments. . . . . A minimum of 6 hours of hterature IS reqwred. S1x hours of social-humanistic subjects should be taken in the junior year and 6 in the senior yea r . These subjects shou ld be taken from the following categories , wit h not fewer than 6 hours from category 2 below. 1 . Literatur e (including foreign literature either in the original or in translation). 2. Economics, socio l ogy , po liti cal science, history, and anthropology . 3 . Fine arcs and music (critical or historical). With advance approval of the student ' s major depart ment a maximum of 6 hours of communication skills (e.g.,' English composit i on, techn ical writing, speak ing , elementary foreign l anguages) may be substitute? for 6 hours of the socialhu manistic requirement. Alt ernanvely, such courses ma y be counted as technical electives . Co urses in business subjects such as accounting, contracts, and manageme n t should be used as technical applicable. (Elective courses are co be coordmated With the faculty adviser.) . Qualified students will be permitted to take appropnate honors courses as substitutes for social-humanistic cou rses. The Humanities and Literature Program is designed to develop communica t ion and ana l ytical skills which are essential for every professional person . Engineering students may select courses from the three components of the program : 1. Hum. 101 , an interdisciplinary , team-taught class, is a core course in the Honors in Humanities Program offered by the Division of Arcs and Humanities (see the College of Liberal Arcs and Sciences, Division of Arcs and Humanities section of chis bulletin for details). 2. A of seven Great Books courses. This series , chronologica ll y arranged, begins wi th the Classical Heritage and ends with Contemporary World Literature. Students may cake any of these courses . They need not be taken in order; rather , students should choose chose historical periods of most interest co them. (The sequence is Engl. 251 , 252, 25 3, 254, 256, 257 , 258-see the English course descriptions for details . ) 3 . Engl. 1 2 0 , Introduction to Fiction , and Engl. 130, Introduction to Poetry and Drama, focus on methodology more than the Great Books seq u ence, dealing with analyses of liter ary forms and s tru ctures. Students should determine the specific requirements of their particular degre e programs with respect co humanities and lit erature . PLANNING AN ENGINEERING PROGRAM It is the responsibil ity of students co be sure they h ave fulfilled all the requirements, to file the intended date of graduation in the departmental office at the close of the third year, co fill out a Diploma Card at registration at the beginning of the last semester, and to keep the departmental adviser and the resident dean's office informed of any changes in the students' plans throughout the last year. In order to b ecome eligib l e for one of th e bachelor ' s degrees in the College of Engineering and a student, in additio n co being in good scandmg m the University, must meet the following minimum require ments: Courses. The satisfactory completion of the prescribed and e l ective work in any curriculum as determined by the appropriate department. Hours. A minimum of 136 hours, of which the lase 30 shall be earned after matric ul ation and admission as a degree student in the College of Engineering and Applied Science at CU is required for st u dents in the four-year curricu la; however, many s tud ents may need to present more than the minimum hour s because of certain de partmental requi r ements and because they have enrolled in courses which do not carry full cred1t coward a degree. The h o ur s required for students in the and e n g in eering program vary b y departments; as a gwde, 166 semester hours are conside r ed a minimum , but most students follow programs c h at bring the total above this figure. Grade Average. A minimum g r ade -point average of 2.0 (C) for all courses attempted and (separate l y computed) for all required courses. A department may require a C average or a minimum grade of C in all major courses . Faculty Recommendation. The recommendation of the facu lty of the department offering the degree and the recommendation of the facu lty of the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Incompletes and Correspondence Courses. It is the student's responsibility to insure that all incompletes a nd correspon dence courses are officially comple t ed b efore the tenth week of the st ud ent ' s final semester in school. Simu/taneom Conferring of Degrees. For business and engineering students , the degree B.S . in business and the degree B.S. in engineering must be confe rr ed at the same commencement . Commencement Exercises. Commencement exercises are held in May . Students finishing in December and August may attend commencement the following May or receive dip l omas by mail. UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES In addition co the standard four-year degree programs previously listed, the College is involved in the following programs .

PAGE 67

Busine s s and Engineering Curricula Undergraduates in the College of Engineering and Applied S c i ence with career interests in administration may complet e all of the requirements for both a B .S. degree in engineering a nd a B . S . degree in business by extending their stud y programs to five years , including one or two summ e r t e rms . The 48 semester credits required in the College of Business and Administration may be started in the second , third , o r fourth year , depending upon the c urriculum pl a n for the particular field of engineering in whi c h th e stud e nt is e nr o lled . Student s raking these undergraduate programs are not r e quir e d t o submit formal application for admission to the C ollege o f Business . However , before enrolling in any busin ess courses, the stud ent must see an adviser and h a v e approva l from the College of Business . R e quir e ments for the undergraduate business degree a nd e n gine erin g degree must be completed concurrently . At least a 2. 0 grade average must be earned in all courses und e rt a k e n in the College of Business . Not fewer than 3 0 sem e st e r credits in business courses must be earned to establish residency credit. Courses offered by the College o f Business may be used in lieu of electives required for und e r g radu ate engineering degrees, subject to the approval of th e individual department. It is also possib l e for qualified graduates (GPA: 3 . 0 o r b e tt e r ) to complete th e requirements for a master ' s degree in business within one year after receiving the baccalaure ate degree in engineering. Before deciding upon the busin ess option, a student should carefully consider, in c onsult a tion with departmental advisers , the relative a dvantages of the combined B .S. business-engineering curri c ula , the degree program of the Graduate School of Business Administration , and the M .S. degree program in the student ' s own engineering discipline. The business requirements for this program are as follows: Courses Semester Hours Econ. 201 and 202.

All course work in the area of emphasis muse be taken in the University of Colorad o College of Business and Administration ........ ..1 Total 48 The student shou ld note that for some courses, and for some areas of emphasis , there are prerequisites which College of Engineering and Applied Science / 59 must be mer. Since some of the courses may be taken a s engineering electives, it is possible to obtain the two d e gre e s in as few as 166 semester hours; how e ver , most students will require more. Joint Engineering Degrees A student may obtain two engineering degrees by meeting the requirements and, by petition , obtaining the approval of both departments c o ncerned . Thirty hours of electiv e or required subjec t s in addition to the largest minimum number required by either of the two depart ments must be completed . Premedicine Option A professional school in a field such as medicine requires a student to have a college education prior to pursuing its professiona l courses. In practically all cases, medical students are university graduates , although occasionally a student may enter medical school after three years of . university training . A student can prepare for medical s c hool either in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences or in the College of Engineering a nd Applied Science . The desirabi l ity of obtaini n g an engineering education prior to undertaking a study of medicine is increasing continually, as medicine itself is evolving . A great deal of additional equipment, most of it electronic , is being d e veloped to assist the medica l practitioner in treatment of p a tients . Bio-engineering, engineering systems analysis , prob a bility , and communication theory are highly applicab l e to medical problems. Improved communication techniques also are allowing the storage and retrieval of information not previous l y available to the medical doctor. An advanced knowledge of basic mathematics and computing techniques , along with increased understanding of physical chemistry, are improving the scientific base upon which medi c al knowledge rests . It is therefore desirable that the medical practitioner and researcher in the future be well equipped with the tools which engineering can offer. To provide at least a minimum of the necessary knowledge , the additional cou rses listed below are pre scribed and must be comp let ed with superior grades. General overall requirements for entry into most medical schools are given. Students can meet these requirements by careful substitution of e l ectives in the engineering curriculum. In some cases where additional hours may be required, interes ted students should consu lt with the en gineering department chairman. General chemistry (103 106) . . . . . . . . 2 sem .

60 / University of Colorado at Denver Students desiring to enter a premedical program should consult the representative of the dep artment involved. At UCD, premedical advising is avai l ab l e through the Health Caree r s Advisor y Committee, Science Bldg . , Room 218. GRADUATE STUDY IN ENGINEERING The College of Engineering and Applied Science a t UCD offers graduate programs in civil enginee ring , com puter science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and applied m a thematics . For information regarding courses and requirements l eading to the degrees Master of Engineering, Master of Environmental Science, Master of Science or tO the Ph . D. degree, see the Graduate Schoo l section of this bulletin. Education for Employed Professional Engineers Con tinui ng education for employed engi neers grows more important each year. Therefore, the College puts great emp hasis upon making graduate courses available through night and televised courses. The Master of En gi ne e rin g degree permi t s graduate students more flexibility in defining specialized interdisciplinary fields th at meet th eir professional needs . This degree has standards fully equiva lent to those of the Mas ter of Science degree. In addition to credit course work, the College works jointl y with the Division of Continuing Education to offer noncredit courses of interest to practicin g engmeers. Concurrent B.S. and M.S. Degree Program in Engineering Students who p l a n t o contin u e in the Graduate School after comp l eting the requirements for the B.S. degree may apply for admissio n to the concurr ent degree program through their depar tment early in the second semester of their junior year (after completion of at least 84 semester h o urs). Requ ireme nt s are the same as for the two degrees taken separately: 136 credit hours for the B.S. degree and 30 c redit hours for the M.S. degree. Social humanistic r eq uirements must be comple ted within the first 136 credit hours. A 3.0 grade-point average for all work attempted through th e first six semesters (at least 96 c redit hours ) and written recommendations from at least two major-field faculty members are required. The purpose of the concu rrent degree program is to allow the student, who qualifies for graduate study and expects ro continue for an adva nced degree, to plan his graduate program from the beginning of the senior year rather than from the first year of graduate study. The student can then reach the degree of proficiency required to begin r esearch at an earlier time, and can make better and fuller use of courses offered only in alternate years. Students will be assigned faculty advisers to help them develop the program best suited tO th eir partic ul ar interests. Those in the program will be encouraged to pursue independent study on research problems or in areas of specialization where no formal courses are offered. A liberal substitution policy will be followed for courses normally required in the last year of the und ergraduate curriculum. The program selected must be planned so that th e student may qualify for a B.S. degree after comp letin g the credit hour r equirements for the degre e if the student so elects, or if the s tud e nt's grade-point ave r age falls below the 3.0 required to remain in the program. In this case, all hours comp l eted with a passing grade while in the program will cou nt toward fulfilli ng the normal requirements for the B.S. degree. There will be no credit given toward a grad u a t e degree for courses applied to the B.S. degree requirements; however , students are still eligible ro apply for admission to the Graduate School under the rules set forth in the Graduate School section of this bulletin. ' Normally, however, the student will apply for admission to the Graduate School when a t least 130 of the 136 cred it hours required for th e B.S. degree have been comp l eted, an d will be awarded the B.S. and M .S. degrees simu ltaneously upon meeting th e requirements set forth for the concur rent degree program. Graduate Work in Business Undergraduates in enginee ring who intend tO pursue graduate study in business may comp lete some of the business background requirements as electives in their undergraduate programs. Seniors in eng ineering who have such intentions and appear likely to qualify for admission ro graduate study in business may be permitted to register for any of the graduate fundamentals courses which are designed to provide qualified students with needed back gro und preparation in business. Students should see an advise r from the College of Business for approval. AEROSPACE ENGINEERING SCIENCES Admission to this program must be approved by the department at the Boulder campus. The primary objective of the aerospace engineering sciences curriculum is to provide sound general training in subjects fundamental to the practice of and r esearch in this branch of engineering sciences. The major par t of the first three years is devoted to the study of mathematics, physics, mechanics, chemistry, and the humanities . The fourth year is devoted tO the professiona l courses in the fields of physics of fluids (fluid dynamics); propulsion and energy conversion; flight dy n amics, contro l , and guidance; space system analysis; mate rial s and structu ral mechanics; space environme nt ; and bioengineering . The minimum tOtal numbe r of semester hours for the B.S . degree is 136 and business courses may not be substituted for technical electives in the aerospace curric ulum. The complete aerospace engineering sciences program is not available at UCD. Therefor e, students wishing to complete this program must apply to the University of Colorado at Boulder . The complete curriculum, degree requirements, and descriptions of courses may be found in the University of Colorado at Boulder Catalog. Curriculum for B.S. (Aerospace Engineering Sciences) The minimum rotal number of hours for the degree is 136 . A typical first two years of the program:

APPLIED MATHEMATICS Charles I. Sherrill III, Coordinator The Division of Natural and Physical Sciences in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers all courses in mathematics, both required and elective, for undergraduate and graduate students in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Three curricula leading to the degree B.S. (A . Math . ) are offered . In Option I , the student rakes a minor in a specific engineering department , satisfying an adviser from that department. In Option II, rhe student rakes distributed course work in engineering departments, including a solid grounding in mechanics , electronics, and materials. (This option is intended for the above-average student.) Option III is a joint mathematics-computer science program. Regardless of the option chosen , each student is expected to complete a minimum of 4 5 semester hours of course work in mathematics beginning with Math. 140. Modern industrial and scientific research is so dependent on advanced mathematical concepts that applied mathe maticians are needed today by a lmost all concerns which are engaged in such research. College of Engineering and Applied Science / 61 The undergraduate curriculum is designed to give training in mathematics and in engineering and science. The use of numerical methods and electronic computers is included . Nontechnical electives should be broadening and have cultural value . Courses in the humanities and the social sciences are required . Students interested in research should take a foreign language as early as possible. Beginning language courses are normally considered technical electives but may count toward the social-humanistic electives. Some 300and 400-level language courses may be counted. Under all circumstances , a student must plan a complete program and obtain the approval of a departmental adviser ar the beginning of rhe sophomore year . The B .S. degree in applied mathematics requires the completion of a minimum of 136 credit hours of course work with an average grade of C or better (a 2.0 grade point average) and a grade of Cor better in all mathematics courses . Course work in the social-humanistic elective area must be approved by rhe student ' s adviser. Curricu lum for B.S. (Appl i ed Mathemat i cs ) FR E HMAN YEAR Fall SemeJter Semuter HourJ Math . 140 .

ARCHITECTURAL ENGINEERING John R . Mays, Coordinator Admissi on to this program must be approved by the department at the Boulder campus. The architectura l engineering curriculum is administered at the B oulder campus by the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering of the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Its purpose is to prepare a student for a career in the building industry and for gradua te-level research on building-related topics. The building industry is the largest single industry in the United States and includes many diverse skills and fields of knowledge. This course of study fulfills the academic requirements for registr ation as a professional engineer. The archi tectural engineering curriculum is recommended for those wishing to specialize (within the building industry) in engineering design , constructi on and contracting, or sales engineering. The a rchitectural engineering student may select any of three areas of specialization offered: construction enginee rin g, environmental engineering, or structural engineering . Speci alizatio n in construction is for students planning a career in contracting a nd building construction. This program involves courses in construction management, planning and scheduling techniques, cost accounting, es timating and pricing, building materials, and construction methods . Students interested in environmental engineering may concentrate their effortS in the fields of illumination and electrical systems design, heating-ventilating-air condition ing systems design, sanitation and water supply, or acoustics. The third area of specia lization is for those interested in the design of strucrural systems for buildings. Courses available are structural analysis; statically indeterminate structures; a nd steel; concrete, and timber design. The five-year course leading to a B.S. degree in ar ch itectural eng ineerin g and a B.S . degree in business offers oppo rtunity to complement the architectural engineering background with srudy in one of the major areas of business adm inistrati on, such as personnel and business management, marketing, a nd finance. Approximately one-half of th e architectural engineering program is available at UCD under the Department of Civil and Urban Engineering. Students wishing t o comp lete the architectural engineering program must apply to the University of Co l orado a t Boulder . The complete curriculum and descriptions of courses may be found in the University of Colorado at B oulder Catalog. Curriculum for B.S.

Hubly , Coordinator Admission to this program must be approved by the department at Boulder. Meeting the crisis in oil and energy, cleaning up the water and air, producing new and better materials to rep lace those that are limited or scarce-these a r e jobs in which one will find the chemical engineer. Chemical plants (including refineries and gasification plants) convert natural resources into industrial and con sumer products . Among their products are many that often are not identified with chemical engineering oils, meta ls, glass , plastic, rubber, paints, soaps and de t ergents, foods, beverages , synthetic and natural fibers, n u clear and exotic fuels , medicines, and many others . The department , located at the Boulder campus, is very much interested in research directed toward ecol ogically sound development of chemical p rocesses. It is also working hard on energy problems and is stressing pro b lems of energy conversion in its instructional program . Many essentials of life originate in chemical engineering . Recycling of wastes and resources is not a new idea in chemical engineering but a long-standing principle. Since the earth now is perceived as a self-renewing system, intelligent generalization of the recycle theory to the entire cycle of narural resources is a challenge and opporruniry for chemical engineers. Cleaning up pollution from chemical plants and from other sources is largely a chemical engineering problem. The chemical engineer efficiently uses and conserves natural resources to create valuab l e end products and to preserve environmental values. College of Engineering and Applied Scienc e / 63 Thus, chemical engineering continually changes and progresses . The Dep a rtment of Chemical Engineering at the Boulder campus therefore helps students to prepare to be immediate l y valuable to industry and eventually to lead future developments in industry and research. Whether they plan to go into industry or o n to graduate work, students are urged to watch , understand , and enjoy the sparkle and interplay of new ideas and new technologies . The complete chemical engineering program is not available at UCD . However, for new first-year students, approximately one-half of the program is available . Students wishing to complete this program should apply to the Universiry of Colorado at Boulder . Also , students must arrange to rake Ch . E . 212 (Chemical Engineering Material and Energy Balances) concurrently in Boulder during the spring semester of their sophomore year or it will de lay graduation by a year. The complete curriculum , degree requirements , and descriptions of courses may be found in the Uni v ersity of Colo rado at Bould e r Catalog. Students interested in chemical engineering but who are unable to consider full-time , day-time study in Boulder should discuss a l ternative programs with the coordinator. Curriculum for B.S.

Hughes, Chairman Civil engineering is generally the broadest field of engineering studied i n American un iversities today. Civil engineering offers an interesting a n d high l y c h allenging career ro the student interested in the design and con struction of buildings, bridges, dams, aqueducts, and other structures; in transpo rt ation syst ems including highways, canals, pipe l ines, airportS, rapid t ransit lines, railroads, and harbor facilities; in the tra n smission of water and c ontro l of rivers; in the deve l op m ent of water resources for urban use , industry , and l and reclamation; in the control of water qua l ity through water purification and proper waste treatment; in the con s t ruction ind u stry; and in genera l i n the rap i d l y expan din g prob l ems concerned with mankind ' s physica l environment and the growth of cities. Furthermore, students educa t ed in civil engineering frequently find rewa r ding emp loym ent in other fields: for example, in aerospace structures, electric power generation, city p l anning, the process industr ies, industria l e n gi neer ing, b u siness management and law o r medicine (aft er appro priate education in law or medica l school). T h e breadth of the civil and urban engineering undergradua t e program provides an excellent educationa l backgro u nd for many fields of endeavor. The curriculum is designed ro g ive the stude n t a broad knowledge of the basic enginee r i n g sciences of chemistry, mathematics (including differe nti a l equations), physics, mechanics (including fluid mechan ics and soi l mechanics) , electrical circuits, and thermody n amics . I n addition, it i ncludes a minimum of 24 sem ester ho ur s i n soci al humanistic studies. Specialized training is achieved t hrough certain required courses, followed by more advanced civil e n gineering electives. By proper selection of these electives t he senior student who wishes ro specialize may emphasize any of the four major areas of civil eng i neering: struc t u res, water resou rces, t r ansporta tion , or ge6 tech nical e n gineeri n g. T o be awarded the B.S. degree, a stu d ent must have a t leas t a 2.0 average in all C.E . courses applied ro t he degree. A five-year prog r am has bee n arranged for s tu de nts who wis h to purs u e a B.S. deg ree in civi l enginee r ing and a B.S. degree in business.

A program leading to th e M .S. in computer science is offered and is described in th e Graduate School section of chis bulletin . For information on rhe B.S. in E .E. and C.S. and on the M.S. in comp ut er science, call the Department of E lectrical and Computer Engineering, 629-2872. ELECTRICAL AND COMPUTER ENGINEERING William D . Murray , Chairman The professiona l possibi l ities in electrical engineering include rea c hing and research in a univ ersity; resear ch and deve l opment of new electrical or electronic devic es, in st rum ents, o r prod u cts ; production and quality-control of e lectrical products for private industry or government; design or opera ti ons in the electrical power industry; and sales or management for a private firm or branch of government . The electrical e n gineering course of study at UCD begins with princ ip les of physics, chemistry, and mathematics an d follows with an early, intensive tra ining in the theory and lab oratory application of electrical circuits, electro m ag n etic a nd transmission theory, electrical machines and transformers , heat , and mechanics . Many students find an o pportunit y to put their knowledge to work with jobs in industry or researc h projects being conducted a t rhe Uni versit y . Throughout rhe entire course of study, they reinforce th eir understanding of rhe theory in well-equipped lab o r arones. Students are encouraged to develop interests outside of their ele c tri cal engineering specia l ty, thus prov idin g themselves with a wellrounded background and a sense of a wareness and responsibility for their later role in society. They are urged to a ttend meetings of their student society, where practici n g engineers from many College of Engineering and Applied Science / 65 engineering specialties speak of their experiences. The areas of specializa ti o n that electrical engineering students may enter upon graduation are so numerous it is impossible for the undergraduate training ro cover them in detail. Intense specialization may be left ro possible additional training graduates may receive when they assume positions wit h industrial firms, or acquired by specializa tion in a research field through graduate work beyond the b ache lor's degree. Students who have earned a B average or better in their undergraduate work and who have elected courses in their senior year that s tr engthen par ticularly their mathematical background may decide to und ertake graduate study . The curricu lum in electrical engineering is designed to mak e it possibl e for t he grad u ating senior with high sch o l arship to finish a master's d egree in e l ectrical engineering in abou t one additiona l full year of work at any of the nation's major universities. Electrical Engineering Curriculum In the e lectrical engineering curriculum the student has considerable freedom in the senior electives . The student may select these electives ro provide a good foundatio n in several of the seven electrical engineering areas listed: communica tions, digital , electronics, fields, materials , power, and systems. Some of these electives may be courses in other branches of engineeri n g or in other colleges. Those students primarily interested in t aking courses in the digita l computer area may do so in this cu rri c ulum or in rhe j oint electrical engineering and comp uter science degree option discussed below. To be awarde d rhe B.S . degree, a student m u st h ave a t least a 2.0 average in all E . E . and C.S. courses applied ro the degree. Business Option Students wishing ro comp l ete a B.S. degree in electrica l e n gineering and a B.S. degree in business should not starr th e business program until their four th year , with rhe exception of e l ecting Econ. 201 and 202 for two of thei r social-humanistic electives. Students wit h a B ave r age may wish ro conside r obtaining a master's degree in business adminis tr atio n . For both of thes e programs , students should refer to the College of Engineering a nd Applied Science inrr oductory section of this bulletin. Premedical Option A program has been devel oped which permits the student ro satisfy th e ent rance requirements for medica l school , such as chose of the University of Colorado , while earning a B . S . in e lectrical e n gineering. Medical schools typically require char applicants have , completed tw o semesters of general chem istry , two semesters of organic chem istry , and two semesters of general biology, all with laboratories. A course in English composition is recommended. M ore specific inf ormacion o n medical schoo l requirements may be obta ined at the office of the Health C a reers Advisory Committee at UCD. Electrical Engineering and Computer Science The joint degree in e l ectrical engineering and computer science is a comprehensive program cove ring both hardware

(E.E. and C.S.) and can be a base for further study roward either an M.S . in computer science o r an M .S. in electrical engineering. A student need not make a decision to enter this program until the junior year. The details of the program are listed in the section following the electrical engineering cur riculum. A cademic requirements are the same as those for the B.S. (E. E.).

The mechanics requirement may be satisfied by the 3-hour course, C.E . 3 1 3, o r the 6-hour sequence of C.E . 212 and C.E. 311. Students who first rake E .E. 313 may, with permission, take only C.E. 311. 4 . The purpose of these elecrives is to allow the srudent to develop some breadth in electrical engineering as well as to develop some depth in areas in which he / she is most likely to concentrate after graduation. Usually these courses will be taken in electrical enginee r ing , mathematics, and physics ar the 300, 400, or 500 levels. In all cases the student needs the approval of the undergraduate adviser . Elecrrical engineering courses at rh e 400 and 500 levels are separated into the following seven areas: communications (C), digital (D), elecrronics (E), fields (F), materials (M), power (P), and systems (S). Seniors are free to elecr courses from any of these areas, bur in order to insure a minimum breadth of studies, every student's program must include 9 semester hours of electrical eng ineering theory courses in at least three areas and a minimum of three laboratory courses in three areas. These disrriburion requirements could be mer through Independent Study, E.E. 940 (1-3) or E.E. 950 (1-3), only if the subject matter studied is acrually in the appropriate area. Independent study may be used only once ro satisfy parr of the distribution requirements. A 3hour upper div ision course in physics must be included among the technical electives. The student who has good grades and is interested in graduate work should take additional mathematics. Some preliminary consulting with a department graduate adviser is desirable. Curriculum fo r B .

The enginee ring physics curriculum gives students a thorough founda tion in the physical princip les underlying most of enginee ring. The large number of engineering e l ectives which may be incorporated in the curriculum makes it possib l e for students to prepare themselves for professional work or graduate school in a wide variety of fields. Because th e program is particularly flexible , the student should be aware that proper preparation for hisj her pr o fessional field will require carefu l selection of e ngin eering electives . The student is urged to prepare, in consult ation with the departmental coordinato r , a coherent plan of courses to meet hisj her professiona l objectives. During the f r eshman and sophomore years, the student must a ttain a thorough training in mathematics and a grounding in fundamental methods and principles of the physical sciences. Durin g the junior and senior years the work in physics is amplified to provide a comprehensive know l edge of t h e various branches of physics such as nuclear physics, atomic physics , elec tronics , th ermodyna mics , mechanics, electricity , and magnetism. Indiv idual initiative and resourcefulness are stressed . For purposes of Federal Civil Service req uir ements this degree is an e n gineering degree from an accredit ed College of Enginee ring.

It is recommended that students preparing for Graduate School also prepare for its foreign language requirement as part of their undergraduate curriculum. Appl i ed Physics Option It is also possible to earn the degree Bachelor of Science (Engineering Physics) with an applied physics option. This op tion differs from the regular engineering physics degree primarily in that fewer advanced theoretical physics courses are required and in their place a selection of applied science courses is required . This option should not be selected by students intending to pursue graduate study in physics, but it is appropriate for students intending to pursue graduate work or employment in related fields such as geophysics, environmental science, oceanography, nuclear engineering, medicine , and law . Students intending to pursue this option should consult the coordinator by the beginning of their junior year regarding the electives which they wish to propose. The 24 hours of electives in pure or applied natural science must be approved by the engineering physics advising committee, which is located on the Boulder ca mpus . The committee will consider the proposed courses relative to the student 's stated educational and j or professional objectives. At least 30 semester hours of credit must be earned after the student's proposed program is approved. Curriculum fo r B .S.

Koeller, Chairman The mechanical engineering curriculum begins with a strong emp hasis on m a thematics, physics , and chemistry . Ir continues with a concentration in engineering sciences such as solid a nd fluid mechanics; thermodynamics , heat a nd mas s transport; materials; and systems analysis and control. It concludes with laboratory and design courses which d emo nstr ate the ways in which scientific knowledge is applied in the design and deve lopm ent of useful devices and processes. The mech a nical engineering program may be roughly subdivid ed into two-year groupings. In the first two years , the pro gram em phasizes the fundamentals of those en gineering sciences that are essent ial for an understanding of most branches of professional engineering. In the last two years of the program, the department provides techni cal electives for professional concentra ti ons in the following areas: Thermod ynamics Heat transf e r Fluid mech anics Solid me c h anics Electrome chanical systems Design Power Dynamics and contro l s Materials science Thermomech a nical systems All of the required courses for mech anical engineering are offered a t UCD.

Graduate School John G. Weihaupt1 Associate Acad emic Vice Chan cellor} and Resident Dean of the Graduate School INFORMATION ABOUT THE SCHOOL The Graduate School is a University-wide body which aut h orizes programs within its constituent colleges and schools. At UCD, Business and Administration (except the M.B .A. Executive program), Education , Engineering , Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Music are colleges or schools whose graduate programs are offered through the Graduate School. In concep t , there is a single Graduate School regardless of campus . In practice, most master 's -level programs are specific to the campus where the student is admitted , insofar as particular options and advisers are concerned. Doc toral-level programs in a discipline are viewed as th e responsibility of the entire University community of th at discipline. At the present time all Ph . D . programs are coordinated through the corresponding B oulder de partment . However, in a number of disciplines most or all course work for the Ph . D. can be completed at Denver a nd the research adviser may be a member of the UCD faculty. Some departments in which this is the case are communication and the atre, electrical engineering, and civil engineering. In other disciplines, a significant portion of the course work required for the Ph . D. degree may be taken at UCD. Persons interested in pursuing doctorallevel work should consult with the appropriate discipline graduate adviser. Anyon e wishing further information not given in this bulletin should contact the Resident Dean of the Graduate S c hool, University of Colorado at Denver , 1100 14th Street, D enver, CO 80202.

72 / University of CoLorado at Denver Facilities for Graduate Study and Research at UCD Facilities for research in many fields are available at UCD as well as specialized institutes, seminars, and meetings of nationa l standing . UCD Computing Services Computing Services at the University of Colorado at Denver supports the instructional and research needs of the University, using both local and remote services. Through a campus -wide nerwork, students, faculty and staff have both batch and timesharing access to UCD's PRIME 750 minicomputer, a Control Data Corporation Cyber 720, or a Digital Equipment Corporation VAX 1lj 780. The Cyber and VAX machines are operated by the University Comp utin g Center in Boulder. The PRIME 750 is operated by Computing Services at UCD and is located in the East Classroom Building. Sofrware available includes many programming lan guages such as FORTRAN, BASIC, PASCAL and COBOL, as well as a library of mathematical and statistical packages and other applications programs . Computing assistants and professional programmers and analysts employed by the center are available to assist members of the UCD com munity in meeting their computing needs. The Graduate Student at UCD Approximately 2,186 students are enrolled in graduate programs at UCD each fall and spring semester, and an additional 2,041 special students take graduate courses . Of these, approxima t e l y 54 percent are part-time students. Faculty The faculty ope r ating in these programs is mainly housed at UCD, although resources of other University of Colorado campuses are used. Financial Aid for Graduate Study SCHOLARSHIPS AND FELLOWSHIPS The University of Colorado administers various forms of financial aid for graduate students: fellowships, schol arships, and a number of awards from outside agencies . The Graduate School offers rwo types of assistance: Colorado Doaoral Fellowships and Colorado Graduate Grants . Special fellowships and scholarships also are available for study in certain departments . Colorado Graduate Grants are available to students who are residents of the State of Colorado and can show demonstrated need. For details contact the Graduate School office. Applications for fellowships, scholarships , and grants are due in the department before the announced department deadline. Fellowship awards are announced about March 15; Colorado Graduate Grant awards are announced each semester for the following semester. GRADUATE STUDENT TEACHING APPOINTMENTS Many departments employ graduate students as part time instructOrs or t eaching assistants. The instruaorship is reserved for those advanced graduate students already possessing an appropriate M.A. degree who may be independently responsible for the conduct of a seaion or course. Payment for these teaching appointments in 1982 83 was: one-half time instructOr, $7,524 for the academic year; one-half rime reaching assistant, $6,020 for the academic year. A half-time appointment for an instrucror is considered ro be equal ro 6 class contact hours ; a half-time teaching assistan t is appoi nted for 20 hours per week. Compensation is based on the number of appointment hours per week. Nonresident students employed as assistants may or may not be eligible for the nonresident tuition differential stipend for their first-year appointment as an assistant only. Exceptions extending beyond the first year must be approved in advance by the respective dean. Teaching assistants and instrucrors must be enrolled students in good standing for the full period of their appointment. RESEARCH ASSISTANTSHIPS Research activities provide opportunities for graduate students to obtain part-time work as research assistan t s in many departments. General fund research assistantships are subject ro the one-year rule on eligibility for waiver of the nonresident tuition differential. Nonresident students who are appointed as research assistants in nongenera,l fund accounts may or may not be eligible for resident tuition rates. Assistants must be enrolled students. LOAN FUNDS Graduate students wishing to apply for long-term loans through the National Direct Student Loan Program and for part-time jobs through the college work-study program should submit an Application for Financial Aid to the Office of Financial Aid by March 1. This office also provides short-term loan assistance ro students who have comp leted one or more semesters in residence. Short-term loans are designed to supp l ement inadequate personal funds and ro provide for emergencies. Applicants should go directly to the Office of Financial Aid. EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES The University maintains an employment service in the Office of Financial Aid ro help students obtain part-time work either through conventional employment or through the college work-study program. Students emp l oyed by the University are hired solely on the basis of merit and fitness, a policy which avoids favor or discrimination because of race, color, creed, sex, age, handi cap, or national origin. Students are also referred ro prospective employers in accordance with this policy. INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION The Office of International Education expedites the exchange of students and faculty, entertains foreign visitors, promotes special relationships with foreign universities, and acts as adviser for Fulbright and other scholarships. The office also arranges study abroad programs. Students remain enrolled at the University of Colorado while taking regular courses in the foreign universities. A B average with the equivalent of rwo years of college-level work in the appropriate language is required. There are also occasional summer programs offering academic credit . Peace Corps information may be obtained from the

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION General Requirements S tu dents may b e admitted to the Graduate School m eithe r of the two categories described below. Admission to the Graduate School is not admission to u mdidac y for an advanc ed degree. A student who wishes to become a candidate for a degree must make special application at t h e rime and in t he manner prescribed by the requirements for the degree sought . A student who i s granted admission must reflect in a mora l and ethical sense a personal background acceptable to the University. The University r eserves the right to deny admission to app l icants whose c oral credentia l s reflect an inability to assume chose ob l iga t ions of performance and behavior deemed essential by the University and relevant to any of i t s lawful missio ns, processes, and func t ions as an educational ins t itution . REGULAR DEGREE STUDENTS Q u alified students are admitted to regular degree status by t h e appropriate department. I n addition to departmental approval, an app l icant for admission as a regu l ar degree student muse: L . Hold a bacca l aureate degree from a college or un iver sity of recognized standing, or have done work equ ival ent to char required for suc h a degree and equivalent to the degree given at this University . 2 . Show promise of ability to pursue advanced study and research , as judged by his or her previous scholastic record. 3. Have had adequate preparation to enter upon grad uate study in the field . chosen. 4. Have at l east a 2. 7 5 undergraduate grade-point average on all work t aken. 5. Meet additiona l requirements for admission as establis hed by major departme nt s . Regular degree students must maintain at least a 3.0 grade-point average each semester or summer term on all work taken , whet h er it is to be applied toward the advanced degree intended or nor. Students who fail to maintain this sta n da r d of performance will be subject to s u spension from t h e Graduate School. Pass/Fail Grades. In order to permit a meaningful evaluation of an app l icant ' s scho l astic record , not more than 10 percent of those credit hours that are relevant to th e intended field of grad u ate study shall have been earned with pass jfail grades, nor more than 20 percent ove r all. Applicants whose academic record contains a larger percentage of passjfail credits must submit suitable ad dit i onal evidence th at they possess the required scholastic abi l ity. If the app l icant does nor submit sa ti sfactory additional evidence, he or she can be admitted only as a provisional student. Graduate School / 7 3 PROVISIONAL DEGRE E STUDENTS Applica nt s who do nor meet the requirements for admission as regular degree students may be admitted as provisional degree students upon the recommendation of the major department . With the concurrence of the dean of the Grad u ate School, a department may admit pro visional stude nt s for a proba t ionary term, which may no r normally exceed one academic year. At the end of the probationary period , provisiona l degree students must either be admitted to regular degree status or be dropped from the graduate program. Credit earne d by persons in provisional degree status may count toward a degree at this University. Provisional degree students are required to maintain a 3.0 grade-po int average or higher, according t o the terms of their provisional admission, each semester or summer term on all work taken , whether or nor it is to be applied coward the advanced degree sought. Students who fail to maintain such a standard of performance, will be subject to suspension from the Graduate School. N o te: All provisional applicants must take the Graduate Rec-ord Examination and submit scores as part of the application. Application Procedures Graduate students who expect to study at UCD shou l d contact the UCD Graduate School office concerning pro cedures for forwarding completed applications. An applicant for admission must present a completed Applic a tion Form (Parts I and II), which may be obtained from the UCD Graduate School office, and two official transcripts from each university attended. The application must be accompanied by a nonrefundable application fee of $20 (check of money order) when the application is submitted . No application will be processed unless this fee is paid. Many departments require scores from the Gradua t e Record Examination, and mos t departments require three or four letters of recommendation. When a prospective degree s t udent ap plies for admission, the chairman of each department or a committee named for the pur pose shall decide whether the applicant shall be admitted and shall make that decision known to the Office of Admissions and Records, which will inform the student. Persons not wishing to work toward an a dvanced degree are refer red to as special students (below) . A completed application must be in the office of the major department a t least 60 days prior to the term for which admission is sought or earlier as may be required by the major department. Students who wish to app l y for a graduate student award for the academic year 1983-84, e.g., fellowship, scholarship, assist antship, etc., must file a completed ap p l ication with t h e department before the announced de partmental dead l ine (see previous section on financial aid). READMISSION OF FOR MER AND SUSPEND E D STU D E NT S Students who were previo usly admitted to a graduate degree program bur who did not comp l e t e that degree a nd who have not been continuously registered at the University must:

A pplication deadlines are availa bl e from the d epartment. In some instances, students who have left t he degree program to which they wer e for merly admitted must submit a new gradua t e applicatio n f o r m and be reconsidered for admission by the departme nt concerned. Former students w h o wish to c h a n ge from undergraduate to graduate status or from one major to another must complete the appro priat e forms a t the time they apply for readmission . Srudenrs transferring from one campus to another must apply and be accep t ed to the new camp us. A student admit t ed to the Graduate Schoo l for the master ' s program must reapp l y for admission for the doctoral prog r am. A suspended student is eligib l e to apply for readmission after one year. App r oval or rejection of this application rests jointly with the student's ma jor department and the dean. In case of lack of agreement b etween the department and the dean or in case of appea l by the student, the final decision will be made by t h e Executive Committee. FORE IGN APPLICANTS Prospective foreign students s h ould have completed app lications on file in the Graduate School office prior to March 15 for summer and fall a n d August 1 for the spring semester. App l ication packet should include 50 fee, TOEFL scores, financial docume n tation, official English translation of all sch ool records, and ocher doc u ments as noted in the previo u s section on A pplication P rocedures . SEN IORS I N THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO A senior in this University who has satisfied the undergraduate residence requireme nts and who needs not more than 6 semester hours of advanced subjects and 12 credit points to mee t hisj her requirements for a bachelor ' s degree, may be admitted to t h e Graduate School by special permission of the resident dean . GRADUATE RECORD EXAMINATIONS At the option of any department, the Graduate Record Examination may be required of applicants for assistant ships, or of any student befo r e his or her status is determined. Students who are applying for the fall of 1984 take the GRE no later than the D ecem ber testing date so that their scores will be available to the graduate awards selection committee. Four to six weeks should be allowed for GRE scores to be received by an institution. Information regarding these examinations may be ob tained from the Grad u a t e School office or the UCD Testing Office , or from the Educational Tes t ing Service, Box 1502, Berkeley , California 94701, or Box 955 , P rinceton , New Jersey 08540. OTHER GRADUATE QUALIFYING EXAM I NATIONS Students entering professiona l sch ools and special pro grams may obtain information at the Student Testing Office, located in the Central Classroom Building, on the following examinations: Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT), Miller Analogies Test (MAT), Doppler, and Law School Admissions Test (LSAT). SPE CIA L STUD E N T S A student not wishing to earn an advanced degree from the University of Colorado should apply to the Office of Admissions and Records, UCD, 1100 14th Street, Denver , CO 80202, or to the Office of the Resident Dean of the Graduate School. Special students will be a llowed to register only on the campus to which they have been admitred. Special students desiring to pursue a graduate degree program at this University are encouraged to submit the complete graduate application and supporting credentials as soon as possible. A department may recommend to the graduate dean the acceptance of as much as 8 hours of credit toward the requirements of a master ' s degree for courses taken either as a student at another recognized graduate school, as a special student at the University , or both . In addition, the department may recommend to the graduate dean the acceptance of credit for courses taken as a special student at this University during the term for which the student applied for admission to the Graduate School, provided such admission date was delayed through no fault of the student. A grade of B or better must be obtained in any course work transferred in this manner. REGISTRA TION Course Work and Examinations On the regul a r registration days of each semester , students who hav e been admitred to the Graduate School and who expec t to study in the Graduate School are required to comp lete appropriate registration procedures. Students should register for classes the semester they are accep ted into Graduate School. If unable to attend that semester they must notify the department which has accepted them and submit the necessary forms to the Office of Admissions and Records at UCD in order to a ttend the following semester. Chang e s in Regis t ration A student who wishes to drop a course or take it for no credit should follow the drop j add standard procedure (see current Schedule of Courses). Note that after the tenth week of classes a graduate student may not drop, add, o r change a course to no credit without presenting a letter to the resident dean of the Graduate School , UCD Administration Building, Room 706, stating the excep tional circumstances which justify the change. This letrer, endorsed b y the instructor of the course, must accompany the properly signed and completed drop j add card or no credit option form . Withdrawal A graduate student who desiJ;es to withdraw from the University must apply to the resident dean of the Graduate School for permission to withdraw in good standing. A student who discontinues attendance in a course without

PAGE 83

official withdrawal will be marked as having failed the course. Master ' s Thesis or Report Graduate students working toward master ' s degrees, if they expect to present a thesis or M.Ed. report in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree , must register for thesis for a minimum of 4 semester hours or a maximum of 6 semester hours, or for M.Ed. report for 2 semester hours. The student may register for any specific number of hours in any semester of residence, bur the total number of hours for all semesters must equal rhe number of credits the student expects to receive for the thesis or reporr. The final grade will be withheld until the thesis or report is completed. If the thesis or report is not completed ar the end of the rerm in which the student is so registered, an in progress (IP) will be reported. (The student may nor register again for any portion of thesis credit on which an JP grade has been submitted.) Limitation of Registration F ULL LOAD A graduate student will be considered to be carrying a full load during a regular semester for purposes of determ i ning residence credit if the student is registered for not fewer than 5 semester hours in work numbered 500 or above, or ar least 8 semester hours of other graduate work, or thesis . A maximum of rwo-thirds of a semester of resident credit may be earned during the summer if a student registers for three semester hours of work in courses numbered 500 or above, 5 semester hours of other graduate work, or any number of thesis hours. For the number of hours required for financial aid see Financial Aid at the Universiry of Colorado at Denver in rhe General Information section of rhis bulletin. A graduate student may contact the resident dean's office for infor mation on the appeal process regarding the full load requirement for financial aid purposes. MAXIMUM L OAD o graduate student may receive graduate credit toward a degree for more than 15 hours in a regular semester. The maximum number of graduate credits that may be app l ied toward a degree during a summer term at UCD is 10 hours per 10-week summer term. TUITION AND FEES The schedule of tuition and fees is given in the General Information section of this bulletin. REQUIREMENTS FOR ADVANCED DEGREES Quality of Graduate Work Although the work for advanced degrees is specified partly in terms of credit hours, an advanced degree will not be conferred merely for the completion of a specified period of residence and the passing of a given number of Graduate School / 7 5 courses. Students should not expect to get from forma l courses all the training, knowledge, and grasp of ideas necessary to meet the requirements for an advanced degree. They should work on their own initiative, reading widely and thoughtfully, reaching their own conclusions, and acquiring a sense of values, perspective, and proportion. All studies offered for credit toward an advanced degree (except those in deficiencies) must be of graduate status. A student is expected to maintain at least a B average in all work attempted in Graduate School. For the Ph.D ., a course mark below B is unsatisfactory and will not be counted toward fulfilling the minimum requirements for the degree. A student who fails to do satisfactory work will be subject to suspension from the Graduate School by the dean wirh the approval of the major department . Appeal may be made to the Executive Col1).111ittee of the Graduate School. The committee ' s decision shall be final. A suspended student is eligible to apply for read mission after one year. Approval or rejection of this application rests jointly with the student ' s major department and the dean. In case of lack of agreement between the department and the dean or in case of appeal by the srudent , the final decision will be made by the Executive Committee. G r ad ing System The standing of a student in work intended for an advanced degree is to be indicated by the marks A , B , and C. ASuperior , 4 credit points for each credit hour. B -Good, 3 credit points for each credit hour. CFair , 2 credit points for each credit hour. Work receiving the lowest passing grade, D, may not be counted toward a degree, nor may it be accepted for the removal of deficiencies. Marks below B are not accepted for the doctoral degree. An IF or an IW grade may be given for incomplete work at the discretion of the instructor. For details, refer to the discussion of the uniform grading system. The grade of IP (in progress) will be given for continuing thesis work and will be valid until the thesis is completed. Graduate students may register for undergraduate courses on a pass jfail basis; however, graduate credit will not be awarded, and such courses cannot be applied toward a graduate degree. Repeat ing a Course A graduate student who receives a grade of C , D, or F in a course may repeat that course once, u pon written recommendation to the resident dean by the chairman of the student's advisory commi ttee and major department, provided the course has not previously been applied toward a degree. In calculating a student's grade-point average for Grad uate School purposes, the grade for a repeated course will substitute for the pld grade. Grades earned in courses taken as an undergraduate or as a special s tu dent, as well as grades earned in first and secon d year foreig n language courses, will not be used in calculating the Gradua t e School grade-point average. However, all grades received will appear on the srudent's transcript.

PAGE 84

76 / University of Colorado at Denver Change of Department or Major A graduate srudenr wishing to change department or major must submit a new Part I and Part II of the graduate application to the new department or school and request the former department to forward recommendations and credentials . Use of English A student who is noticeably deficient in the use and spelling of the English l anguage may nor obtain an advanced degree from the University of Colorado. The satisfaction of this requirement depends not so mu ch upon th e abi lity to pass formal tests, although these may be demanded, as it does upon the habitual use of good English in all oral and written work . Ability to use the language with precision and distinction should be cultivated as an at tainment of major importance. Each department will judge the qualifications of its advanced students in the use of English . Report s , ex aminations , and speech will be consid ered in estimating the candidate ' s proficiency . MASTER'S DEGREE A student regularly admitted to the Graduate School and later accepted as a candidate for the degree Master of Arcs, Master of Science, or o ther master ' s degree will be recommended for the degree only after the following requirements have been met. In general , only graduates of an approved institution who have a thorough preparation for their proposed field of study and who do graduate work of high quality are able to attain the degree with the minimum amount of work specified below. All studies offered toward the minimum requirement for the degree must be of graduate rank. Necessary additional work required to make up deficiencies or prerequisites may be partly or entirely undergraduate courses. The requirements stated below are mmtmum require ments; additional conditions set by the department will be found in the announcements of separate departments. Any department may make further regulations not in consistent with the general rules. Minimum Requirement The minimum requirement of graduate work for the degree Master of Arts or Master of Science may be fulfilled by following either Plan I or Plan II below. Plan I: By presenting 24 semester hours of graduate work, including a thesis. At least 1 2 semester hours of this work must be at the 500 level or above. Plan II: By presenting 30 semester hours of graduate work, without a thesis . At least 16 semester h ours of this work must be at the 500 level or above. Plan II does not represent a free option for the student. A candidate for the master's degree may be allowed to select Plan II only on the recommendation of the department concerned. Graduate Credit Graduate credit is given for courses which are listed at the 500 level or above and which are offered by those colleges or schools that are members of the Graduate School , or which have otherwise been approved by the dean of the Graduate School. No assurance can be given that work taken by a student will count toward a higher degree unless the student has the approva l of the de partment . Not all courses listed are available at any one time; some of them are given in alternate years. Courses taken during the fall semester 1975 and thereafter will have graduate rank if they are taught by members of the Graduate School faculty and are in one of the following two categories: 1 . Courses within the major department at the 500 level or above . 2. Courses outside the major department at any level, provided they a:re approved for graduate rank for a specific degree plan by the faculty of the degree-granting program . This does not change the minimum number of courses that must be taken at the 500 level or above. However, as a result , most students who include 400-level courses of other departments in their program will not exceed those minimum requirements for graduation. Field of Study Studies leading to a mas ter' s degree may be divided between major and minor subjects at the discretion of the f a culty of the degree-granting program . Status After a student has made a satisfactory record in this University for at least one semester or summer term and after he has removed any deficiencies that were determined at the time of admission or by qualifyi ng examinations or otherwise, he should confer with his major department and request that a decision be made on his status. This definite status must be set by his major department before a student may make application for admission to candidacy for an advanced degree. Students who are inadequately prepared must make up without credit toward a graduate degree all prerequisites required by the department concerned. Language Requirements Candidates must have suc h knowledge of ancient and modern languages as each department requires. See special departmental requirements . Credit by Transfer Resident graduate work of high qua lity done in a recognized graduate school elsewhere and coming within the time limit may be accepted up to a limited amount, provided it is recommended by the department concerned and approved by the resident dean of the Graduate School. All work accepted by transfer must come within the 5-year time limit or be validated by specia l examination. The maximum amount of work that may be transferred to this University is 8 semester hours . Credit will not be transferred until the student has established in the Graduate School of this University a satisfactOry record of at least one semester in residence; such transfer will not reduce the residence requirement at this University, but it may reduce the amount of work

PAGE 85

to be don e in formal courses. Requests for transfer of credit to be applied toward an advanced degree must be made on the form specified for this purpose and submitted to the Graduate School by the beginning of the semester prior to that in which the student will be graduated. Work already app lied toward a master's degree received from another institution cannot be accepted for transfer toward the master's degree at the University of Colorado; extension work completed at another institution cannot be transferr ed; and correspondence work, except to make up deficiencies, is not recognized . Excess undergraduate credits from another institution may not be transferred to the Graduate School. Seniors in this University may , however , rransfer a limited amount of advanced resident work (up to 8 semester hours) provided such work: l. Is completed with distinction in the senior year at this Univ e rsity . 2. Comes within the five-year time limit. _). Has not been applied toward another degree. 4. Is recommended for transfer by the department concerned and is approved by the dean of the Graduate chool. Reque sts for transfer of credit to be applied toward an adva nced degree must be made on the form specified for this purpose and submitted to the Graduate School by the beginning of the semester prior to that in which the student will be graduated. For more information contact the Graduat e Schoo l office. Residency In general, the residency requirements can be met only by residence at this University for at l east two semesters or at least three summer terms . For full residence a student must be registered within the time designated at the beginning of a semester and must carry the equivalent of not fewer than 5 semester hours of work in courses numbered 500 or above, or at least 8 semester hours of orher graduate work. See Limitation of Registration , Full Loa d, for requirements for full residence credit during the summer. A student who is noticeably deficient in his j her genera l training , or in the specific preparation indicated by each department as prerequisite co graduate work, cannot expect to obtain a degree in the minimum time Assistants a nd other employees of the University may fulfill the residence requirements of one year in two semesters, provided their duties do not require more than half time . Full-time employees may not satisfy the residence requirements of one year in fewer than four semesters. Admission to Candidacy A student who wishes to become a candidate for a master's degree must file application in the dean's office not later than LO weeks prior to the completion of the comp rehensiv e final examination. The number of hours ro be pres ented for the degree must be determined before this application may be filed. See previous section on Status . This application must be made on forms obtainable at the dean's office and in various departments and must be signed by the major department, certifying that the Graduate School / 77 student ' s work is satisfacrory and that the program outlined in the application meets the requirements set for the student. A student on Graduate School probation is not eligible to be awarded a degree until he or she is removed from probation. Thesis Requirements A thesis , which may be of a research, expository, critical, or creative type, is required of every master's degree candid ate under Plan I. Every thesis presented in partial fulfillment of the requirements for an advanced degree must: l . D ea l with a definite ropic related co the major field. 2. B e based upon independent study and investigation. 3. Represent the equivalent of from 4 to 6 semester hours of work. 4. Receive the approval of the major department not later than 30 days (in some departments, 90 days) before the commencement at which the degree is to be conferred. 5. Be essentially complete at the time the comprehensive final exami nation is given. 6. Comply in mechanical features with specifications obtainable from the Graduate School. Two weeks prior to the date on which the degree is to be conferred, two formally approved, primed or rype written copies of the thesis must be filed in the Graduate School. The thesis must be complete with abstract. All theses must be signed by the thesis adviser and the second reader. All approved theses are kept on file in the library . The thesis binding fee must be paid at th e Finance Office on the Denver campus when the thesis is deposited in the Graduate School. Credit hours earned for the thesis will not be accepted coward the requiremencs for a degree unless such credit has previously been registered . A student working toward a master's degree must register for thesis for a specific number of hours. The student may register for any specific number of hours in any semester of residence , but the rota! registered credit for thesis must total a minimum of 4 or a maximum of 6 semester hours , the total number of hours depending upon how much credit is to be given for the thesis. The final grade will be withheld until the thesis or report is comp leted. An IP (in progress) will be r eported for terms during which the student is registered for thesis prior co comp letion of the thesis . Comprehensive Fina l Examinat i o n s Each candidate for a master ' s degree is required co take a compre hensive final examination after the other requirements for the degree have been completed . This examination may be given near the end of the candidate's last semester of residence while he is still taking required courses for the degree , provided he is making satisfactory progress in those courses. The following rules applying to the comprehensive final examination must be observed: 1 . A student must be registered when he or she takes the examination. 2 . Notice of the examination must be filed by the major department in the dean 's office at least three days

ANTHROPOLOGY The master's program in a nth ropology offers general, flexible training in anthropo l ogy along wit h topical spe cialization and the opportunity to specialize in inte r dis c iplinary , applied areas: medica l anthropology and com munity and urban anthropology. The medica l anthropology track is intended to serve students preparing for careers and those with established car eers in the health care professions and related fields. Similarly, the community and urban anthropology track is intended to serve those who seek to emp loy anthropo l ogical concepts and methods of community a n a lysis in public admin i stration, devel opment , planning, and allied fields. Working with an advisory commit tee, each student will tailor an individual program of studies around courses and seminars in an th r opo l ogy and allied discip lines. These programs will culminate in eit h er a master ' s paper-Plan II , or master ' s thesis-Plan I. A primary goa l of the program is to produce graduates who are capable of und erstanding and proficient at resolving, in cooperation with others, the many problems of complex socie ties; consequently, a premium will be placed on interd i scip lin ary instruction and p r actical exercises i n the design and implementation of research in a variety of settings.

ECONOMICS The M.A. program in economics at UCD is especially directed toward two groups: (1) those who l ook on the M.A. as a key to career development in business or government service and (2) those who desire to go on to Ph.D. studies in economics or related fields. In serving these constituencies, the department seeks to strike a balance between generating technical competence in handling modern quantitative techniques and providing solid grounding in several applied fields of economics. While these two aims overlap to some degree in the course offerings, prospective degree candidates should de termine rather early in their studies ar UCD whether to emphasize quantitative and theoretical work or applied fields, or to balance the rwo. In addition to offering regularly a graduate sequence in macroeconomic and microeconomic theory, and econ ometrics , the department emphasizes the following: urban economics, transportation economics, resource economics, environmental economics, public finance and policy, ed ucation of economists, political economy, and mathematical economics. Persons interested in the program should contact the graduate adviser in the Department of Economics at 629-2616. Requirements for Admission I . General requirements of the Gradua t e School (in cluding a 2. 7 5 undergraduate cumulative g r ade-point average). 2. Three letters of recommendation. 3. Sixteen semester hours of undergraduate economics . 4. Acceptable Graduate Record Examination scores . 5. Two official transcripts from all colleges attended. Degree Requirements L Economic Theory (Econ. 507). 2. Quantitative Methods (Econ. 581). 3. Plan 1: An M.A. Thesis. Twenry-four semester hours, of which 12 must be ar rhe 600 level or above and 4 semester hours of thesis credit. Thesis credit does nor count toward the 12 600-level hours. 4. Plan II: Without Thesis. Thirty semester hours, of which 15 must be at the 600 level or above. Two fields of concentration. Each field requires 6 credit hours, but the structure is highly flexible, e.g., one field can be an internship. EDUCATION Graduate study m education ar the University of Colorado is offered on three campuses (Denver, Boulder, and Colorado Springs) and through 14 program areas. All inquiries regarding programs ar UCD should be directed ro the Dean's Office, School of Education, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th St., Denver, CO 80202, or to the Resident Dean of the Graduate Schoo l at UCD . A wide range of professional and academic interest is served by these programs. Programs of study can be undertaken in the following areas: Administration and supervisio n Early childhood education Educational psychology Elementary education Foundations Guidance and coun seling (elementary, secondary, and agency settings) Library media Middle school certification Graduate School / 83 Reading School psychology certification Secondary education (mathematics education, science ed u carion, English education, social studies education) Special education Graduate studies in education are offered at the M.A. (thesis and nonthesis) level. In some instances, doctoral work can be taken at UCD, bur only wirh the prior approval of a student ' s adviser, and the dean ' s office on both the Boulder and Denver campuses. Outlines of each of the graduate programs of study are avai lable upon request from the Schoo l of Education office at UCD. Since many of the graduate degree plans are flexible and can be designed around individual student needs , it is highly desirable that the prospective candida te discuss tentative programs of studies with appropriate faculty members prior to submitting applicatious. Application for Admission A prospective candidate should request application forms from the dean's office, School of Education, University of Colorado at Denver. The completed form should be returned ro the D ean, Schoo l of Education, UCD , together with a 20 application fee. The fee should be in the form of a c heck or money order payable to the University of Colorado. Two copies of official transcripts of all previous college and university study should be ordered by the applicant to be sent to the dean. Four recommendations on the forms provided, or by letter , should be furnished. At least rwo of these should be from college or univ ersity professors who can write with assurance about the ap plicant's academic and professional achievement promise. One or rwo recommendations from supervisors or employers are acceptable with reference to an applicant's ability and contributio n to the enterprise with which hej she was or is associated . Application papers and all supporting doc uments (including GRE scores or MAT scores, see below) must be in the dean 's office on April 1 for summer, June 1 for fall, and October 1 for spring semester admission. Applicants s h ould request the Educational Testing Service to send their scores on the aptitude test (verbal and quantitative) of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), or scores from the Miller's Anal ogy Test, to the dean's office. If an applicant has not taken the Graduate Record Examination or the Miller ' s Analogy Test, hejshe should arrange to do so. The GRE or MAT is administered at many centers throughout the country.

84 / University of Colorado at Denver year or more of graduate work beyond the bachelor's degree. The minimum residence requirement for any master ' s degree is one academic year or the equivalent, and it may be satisfied by two semesters in residence, or three full summer sessions, or any combination equal to two semesters. 1. M.A.-Plan I (With Thesis). The program consists of 36 semester hours or more, i n cluding 4 semester hours for the master's thesis . While the inclusion of a minor field is nor required by the Graduate School, a student and adviser may agree on a minor, in which 4 to 8 semester hours can be applied toward degree requirements. The M.A . thesis is written in accordance with the specifications set by the Graduate School and under the supervision of the student ' s adviser. When a complete first draft is ready for final typing , the thesis must be read by a second reader appoi n ted by the dean's office. If the second reader approves t h e thesis, both the reader and the adviser will sign it when it is presented for filing with the Graduate School. If the reader does not approve, he j she and the student's adviser will confer and suggest appropriate changes. Two copies are required by the Graduate School. 2. M.A.-Plan II (Without Thesis). The Plan II program includes 36 or more semester hours of graduate credit, and may include 4 to 10 hours for a minor. The minor is highly recommended in some fields of study. 3. Master of Education (M.Ed.). This program requires a minimum of 36 or more semester ho urs of graduate work, including a professional report for which 2 semester hours credit is granted. The professional report is prepared under the supervision of the student's adviser, in accordance with thesis specifications issued by the Graduate School. One copy is submi t ted to the adviser upon completion, but none is filed with the Graduate School. EDUCAT ION AS A MINO R FIELD In M.A. programs for majors outside the School of Education, students may include education as a minor if both their major department and the dean's office of the School of Education approve. For master's degrees, a minor in education consists of at least 6 semester hours of study in related courses. Not more than 2 semester hours may be transferred from another instirucion. Students who propose to minor in education must have had sufficient undergraduate work in education to prepare them for graduate study in the field. Appraisal of un dergraduate preparation will be made by the dean's office and the coordinator of the program area in which the proposed minor courses will be taken. ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING Electrical engineering graduate programs at UCD are offered through the combined Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering (Denver) and Elernical En gineering (Boulder). Students can u n dertake studies toward the Master of Science and Ph. D . degrees at UCD in the areas of communication and information systems, computer hard ware and software, control syst ems, elec trooptics and holography , circuits and electronics, fields and propagation, and power systems. Requirements for Admission A student wishing to pursue work in electrical engineering should read carefully the Requirements for Advanced Degrees section in this bulletin, and shou l d also obtain a copy of the specific electrica l engineering req u irements by writing to the Direaor of Graduate Admissions, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Uni versity of Colorado at Denver , Denver, CO 80202. Special students and those intending to pursue a graduate program at UCD are urged to consult the departmental representative as part of their application procedure. Degree Requirements Master ' s degree students are expected to present a t hesis unless specifically exempted by the department. The Ph.D. preliminary examination will include the following areas: Bioengineering Circuits (active, passive, models) Communication theory Computers Control systems Elecrric and magnetic fields Energy conversion and power systems Mathematics Physical and sem i conductor electronics Each student must comp l ete two sections, mathematics and the area in which hejshe plans to specialize, and must present an acceptable master ' s thesis or the equivalent as an indication of ability to perform independent research . E NGINEER I NG , MASTER OF The Master of Engineering degree program is admin istered by the Graduate School through th e departments of engineering. The requirements for admission and for quality and quantity of academic work are essential l y the same as for the Master of Science degree awarded in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. The principa l difference between the Mas ter of Engi neering degree and the Master of Science degree is that the Master of Engineering is intended especially to meet the needs of those practicing engineers who wish to follow an integrated, interdisciplinary program of studies in en gineering or in engineering and allied subjects rela t ed to the individual student ' s professional work. Examp les of such interdisciplinary programs include engineering and social sciences, engineering and biologica l sciences, engi neering and behavioral sciences, engineering and public administration, engineering and law, and enginee r ing and business administration. The degree will be especially valuab l e for continuing education programs for engineers in industry. It will provide a framework for such persons to work toward significant goals fitted to t h eir particu l ar interests. The program can include courses which are made availab l e on video tape or on live tel evision. The Master of Engineering degree is n ot inte n ded as

PAGE 93

a means to permit a random, unguided selection of courses. Each prospective student is required ro present a well defined objective in order ro be admitted to the program . In consultation with the faculty advisers, an academic program is developed to meet this objective. The admission of students to graduate study, the approval of their degree programs, admission ro candidacy for the degree, and the approval of the awarding of a degree are to originate through a specific department of the College of Engineering and Applied Science, in the same manner as for the established Master of Science program . An advisory committee, including not fewer than three faculty members , will be appointed for each student by his or her department . The membership of each advisory committee shall be chosen from the various interdisciplinary academic areas represented in the student's program and will be from more than one department. The advisory committee guides the student, and is responsible for approving the individual's degree program and admission ro candidacy; and approves the student's written report and the awarding of the degree. Degree Requiremen ts The requirements for the degree are 30 credit hours plus a written report on a creative investigation which may be related to the student's professional work. The report will be of the same general quality as that required for the thesis for the Master of Science degree and muse be defended orally, but does noc in itself carry credit nor require registration. It may be based upon work done for credit under independent study. At least 15 credit hours must be in engineering at the 500 level or above. As many as 15 credit hours may be taken outside of engineering. Credit in courses below the 400 level will not apply roward degree requirements . Additional information about the degree may be obtained from the College of Engineering and Applied Science departmental offices.

HISTORY The hisroty faculty of the University of Colorado at Denver offers a master's degree program which encompasses certain fields of modern history . Students applying for admission to the program should have sufficient background in history , though not necessarily a B.A. in the subject, and some knowledge of allied social sciences to afford an adequate foundation for graduate work. However , the department encourages applications from individuals in terested in resuming their education . The master's degree in h istory is traditionally viewed as training for careers in education, government service, museum and archive management, or historic preservation activities as well as for further degree work in law and business management . But the degree program is also attractive to individuals who want to further their general education. Requirements for Admission Application forms for admission to graduate study in history are available from the UCD Graduate School office. In addition to the general admission requirements of the Graduate School, applicants for admission to the history program must take the verbal and the advanced history section of the Graduate Record Examination. Applicants may also submit a significant sample of their writing. The Admissions Committee will examine carefully all materials s u bmitted, including transcripts and l etters of recommendation , and advise that candidates make appointments for an interview . Degree Requ i remen t s Candidates in history must satisfy the genera l require ments of the Graduate Schoo l which are outlined in this bulletin. In meeting the master's degree requirements of the Department of History candidates have two options. They must complete either 30 semester hours of course work, or 24 semester hours of course work and a thesis. Under the first option , candidates must include in the 30 hours at least 15 hours of course work at the 600 level or above and 3 hours of 700-level work in their major field. Under the second option, the 24 hours of course work must include at least 12 hours of work at the 600 level or above and 3 hours at the 700 l evel in the major field. The thesis (4-6 hours) counts as 700-level work. A candidate is urged to select his or her thesis, which is subject to departmental approval, by the beginning of the second semester. The writing of the thesis shall be under the supervision of the candidate's major adviser. Except in special circumstances, the department strongly recom mends the thesis option. Upon nearing the comp l etion of their degree work, all candidates are required to pass a final written comprehensive examination in their major field. The examination, to be registered for in advance, will be given each semester, including summers , at announced times and will be

HUMAN ITIE S , MASTER OF The Mast e r of Humanities is an interdisciplinary degree offered at UCD . Its purpose is to provide an opportunity for students to broaden their understanding of the rela tionships among the several areas normally subsumed under the hea ding of humanities, e.g., com munic a tion , phi l osophy, the arts, literature , and the languages. The M . H . program is especially suitable for the many high Graduate School / 87 school, junior high school , and elementary school teachers who find themselves in the position of having ro teach in several different areas of the humanities . However the M.H. program is by no means restricted ro teachers . All courses required for t h e M . H . degree are offered at UCD . Requirements for Admission Each student is required to take the Graduate Record Examination aptitude test as an aid in the planning of hisj her studies for the degree . Before entering the M . H . program , a student is expected to have had at l east 40 semester hours in the humanities. Humanities, as used here , is broadly conceived to include ge n eral studies in communication, theatre, philos ophy, literature, the arts, the languages , and other areas as agreed up o n by the student and the Graduate School. Gen eral requi r ements of the Graduate School governing the awa rding of the master's degree apply. Degree Requirements All courses credited toward the M.H. degree must be tak e n a t the University of Colorado over a period not exceeding five years or six successive summers . The M.H. degree program shall be supervised by an advisory com mittee consisting of three members of the graduate faculty, each from a different area of the humanities . In addition to the 3 hou r s for Hum. 500 (described below) , candidates for the M.H. degree are expected to comp lete a minimum of 24 semester hours at the 500 level or higher in four of the following areas (i.e., 3-9 hours in each area): Communication English Fine arts Fren c h language and literature HiHory Music Ph ilosophy Spanish language and literature Theatre Up to 6 hours in areas other than those l isted above may be accepted as humani ties as agreed upon by the student and the advisory comittee. The requirement of 3 9 ho urs in each area is intended ro ensure that the student achieves a considerable degree of breadth. O n the other hand, this requirement should not be conscrued as precluding the student from doing additional work in one particu l ar field in order to achieve further depth . Within one calendar year of ent ering the M.H. program , the student is req u ired to take Hum. 500 (may be repeated as 501) . This is a 3-aedit seminar that deals with the identity of the hum ani ties, t heir place in t h e life of man, the various media through which they manifest themselves , and related matters . Hum. 500 (and 501 if repeated) count as part of the 30 ho urs required for the M . H . degree. Twenty-four of the required hours will be taken in the discip l i nes listed above, the remainder to be completed through Hum. 500 (and 501 if repeated) . Before comp l eting 15 hour s of course wor k toward the M . H., the student must meet with an advisory committee ro plan the direc t ions and emphases for t h e remainder of studies for the degree. After comp l eting the 30 h o ur s required for the degree,

PAGE 96

88 / Universit y of Colorado at Denver the student is required to pass a comprehensive examination covering the three areas in whic h course work has been concentrated. It should be stressed that this examination is n o t a c o mbination o f three different master ' s degree ex aminations ; rather, it is an opportunity for the student to displ a y , and the faculty to view, the student's expertise in combining significant aspects of three different fields, bringing m a jor trends and ideas of the fields into meaningful r e lationships with each other. The examination will be c omposed and administered by the student's advisory c ommittee . After satisfactory completion of the comprehensive ex amination, the student must present a final thesis or project. Tlus is a substantial scholarly and j or creative exercise involving three different humanistic areas . It is supervised by the student ' s advisory committee and must b e performed or presented before an open seminar consisting o f the c ommittee and any other faculty members who wish to attend. The approved thesis or report of thesis performance shall be recorded in the Graduate School. Throughout this work roward the M.H. degree , the student must upho ld the high standards of the Graduate S c hool , maintaining at least a B average in all courses taken subsequent ro hisj her admission to the M.H. program. Required Courses The only course specifically required for the M.H. degree is the new Hum. 500 described above. The 24 hours (in addition ro Hum. 500) required for the degree will normally be drawn from 500l evel courses which already exist ar UCD . The language requirement for th e M .H. degree is fourth semester proficiency in a language relevant ro the student's particular course of study . Such relevancy will be decided upon by the student's advisory committee. For further information about the Master of Humanities degree program srudenrs should contact the Division of Arts and Humanities, 629-2730. MANAGEMENT AND ORGANIZATION, MANAGEMENT SCIENCE, AND MARKETING Refer to the Graduate School of Business Administration section of this bulletin . MATHEMATICS Two graduate degrees may be earned in mathematics: the M.A. in mathematics and the M.S . in applied math ematics . (Also see Master of Basic Scien ce.) It is the responsibility of each individual srudent to see that the requirements for these degrees are satisfied at the proper time . Requirements for Admission To begin grad uate work toward one of the above degrees, a srudent should have at least the following preparation: 30 semester hours in mathematics including, beyond a full course in calculus, a year ' s course in advanced calculus, 3 semester hours of linear algebra and either a 3-semes t er-hour course in higher algebra or a 3-semesterhour course in ordinary differential eq u ations . Students who do not have all the prerequisites for one of the advanced degrees may still be admi tted provisionally if , in the faculty ' s judgment, th eir record justifies this (but also see the Graduate School admission requir ements). For a mathematics minor for a graduate degree, a full course in calculus is a prerequisite. Degree Requirements for the M.A. and M.S. The student must present 30 hours of course work, including a 6-hour minor. All mathematics courses sub mitted must be numbered 500 or higher. If the minor is taken outside of mathematics , the minor courses must be numbered 400 or higher. These 3 0 hours must be planned in consultation with and approved by a mathematics graduate adviser. There is no thesis requirement for either degree. However , the candidate must make a one hour oral presentation on an approved ropic. A committee of two graduate faculty members is selected by the candidate ro approve the ropic and supervise its preparation a nd presentation. There is no foreign language requirement for either master ' s degree . However, students who may want ro continue for a Ph.D . shou ld satisfy at least one of the foreign language requirements before o btainin g a master ' s degree. All master's degree programs must be planned in consu lt ation with an approved mathematics graduate adviser. Prospective candidates for a master's degree should select a graduate adviser and develop and file a degree program plan at the earliest possible date. Failure ro do this could result in the loss of credits for courses that cannot be approved for the option selected. Contact the department for information on selecting a graduate adviser. The department offers a wide assortment of programs leading ro a master's degree and is contin uing an expansion of the applied mathematics faculty and course offerings. At present, the Master of Science in app lied mathematics has the following options: (1) enginee ring or science applications , (2) computer science applications, (3) statistics applications, and (4) econo mics applications. Other options will become avai l able as approp riate faculty are employed. For further information contact the graduate adviser at (303) 629-2646. MECHANICAL ENGINEERING Under the auspices of the Mechanical Engineering Department at Boulder, the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Denver is offering graduate courses. The department offers graduate programs leading ro the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering to students whose goal is teaching, research, or advanced development in the broad disciplines of solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, thermodynamics, mechanical and thermal design, and engineering economy and management . These areas of study provide the technical background necessary to deal with a wide variety of contemporary mechanical engineering problems . Typical examples include combus tion-generated pollution; fire safety; effective use of al ternative energy sources such as solar and geothermal heat; efficient energy management of thermal systems; dynamic

behavior of high-strength composites; earthquake engi neering; brittle fracture of coal and oil shale; and bioen gineering topics such as heart-valve research, design of prosthetic devices, and modeling of the human spine . Degree Requirements At the M.S. degree level, students followng Plan I (with thesis) are required to rake 9 hours of core courses which include engineering analysis and a selection from thermodynamics , mechanics, design, and mechanisms. Stu dents following Plan II (all formal course work) are required to take 15 hours of core courses in thermody namics, continuum mechanics, dynamics, and engineering mathematics. The remainder of the program is developed by the student in consultation with the adviser. For admission to Ph.D. candidacy the student must pass a comprehensive examination to demonstrate a general competence in mechanical engineering at an advanced level. In addition, second-year, college-level reading proficiency must be demonstrated in scientific French, German, Rus sian, or other foreign language approved by the department upon petition by the student. Graduate Study i n Mechanics Graduate programs leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanics which emphasize the mechanical sciences of solids and fluids and thermal science , are available through the Department of Mechanical Engi neering . For students working in mechanics, a strong cognate program in mathematics is imperative. Specific degree plans emphasize courses of both a fundamental character and a research level treatment. Requirements for the M.S . and Ph.D. degrees in mechanics are similar to those in mechanical engineering , with the additional re quirements that students following Plan II (all formal course work) at the M .S. level must take 6 hours in advanced calculus, ordinary and differential equations, complex variables, and boundary value problems or their equivalents. MUSI C Graduate study in music at UCD is presently offered in several cooperative programs with the University of Colorado at Boulder . Varying amounts of work toward the Master of Music Education and the Master of Music degrees may be taken in Denver. Admission to these programs is achieved by application to the Office of the Associate Dean for Graduate Study, College of Music, University of Colorado at Boulder, Boulder, CO 80309. Postbaccalaureate study in the special areas of concen tration unique to UCD include composition and arranging, sound synthesis and recording , and music management. Since these are innovative programs, prospective candidates should make personal inquiry at UCD about requirements. The music educator intending to undertake graduate work will find the UCD programs attractive, particularly if he or she has special interests in jazz, rock, improvisation, sound synthesis and recording , and the repertory associated with today ' s youth. The composer-arranger-performer-producer who seeks graduate training in the fields of recording, television, and &aduate School / 89 musiC for advertising also will find UCD responstve to his or her needs. App l ied Music Poli cy All performance standards, requirements, and credits specified for a particular music degree in this College do not necessarily transfer and become acceptable for any other music degree within the College. Additional infor mation on this policy is available from the Office of the Resident Dean, UCD College of Music. PHIL OSOPH Y Applicants for admission to the Graduate School for work toward an M.A . or Ph.D. degree with a major in philosophy are expected to have had 18 or more semester hours in undergraduate courses in the subject including history of philosophy. While some course work at the graduate level may be taken at UCD in this discipline, all degree programs must be arranged through the Uni versity of Colorado at Boulder. Students wishing to pursue graduate work in philosophy should note Requirements for Advanced Degrees in this bulletin and should obtain from the department a copy of the Graduate Program in Philosophy. The Graduate Record Examination is not required . Certain special programs exist (M.A .' s in comparative East j Wesr philosophy and in history and philosophy of science) , details of which may be had on request. PHYSICS While some course work at the graduate level may be taken at UCD in this discipline, all degree programs must be arranged through the University of Colorado at Boulder. Physics courses at the 400 level may be used for graduate credit for students in nonphysics graduate programs. POLITICA L SCIENC E Requirement s for Adm i ss ion Students applying for admission to the M.A . program in political science normally should at least 18 hours of undergraduate or previous graduate work in political science, at least 9 hours of which should be at the upper division or graduate level. Deficiencies may be made up ar UCD by enrolling in political science courses as a special student . Deficiencies usually must be made up before the student will be admitted as a regular degree student, and the work involved will be in addition to the minimum hourly requirements for the degree. Graduate Record Examination aptitude scores are required of ap plicants. The department may make exceptions to these requirements in unusual cases (for instance, where course work in related fields such as psychology, economics, and history , or practical political experience, compensate for course work deficiencies in political science) . Deg ree R equiremen ts The degree requirement shall consist of at least 2 5 semester hours of work at the graduate level, including
