The Univ e r s i ty of C olorado seal , adopted in 1908 , depicts a male Greek classical figure sea t e d against a pillar and holding a scroll . A burning torch fram e d in laurel is placed beside him . The Greek inscription means " Let your light shine. " According to Denver des i g n er H e nry R e ed, th e classical design was used because Greek civilization " stands as the criterion o f c ulture ."

Opening its doors on September 5, 1877, the university began with 44 students, a president, and one instructor. Nearly a century later, in 1974, the University of Colorado had grown to four campuses in three Colorado citiesDenver, Colorado Springs, Health Sciences {Denver), and Boulder. In july 2004, the Denver and Health Sciences Center campuses comolidated to form the new University of Colorado at Denver and Health Sciences Center. With combined enrollments totaling more than 46,000 students, the University of Colorado ranks 12th among public universities and colleges in overall research expenditures and 6th among public universities in federally funded research. Awards for research within the university system total approximately $420 million, with funding provided by federal agencies, appropriations from the state of Colorado, and private foundations and donors. Each of the campuses of the University of Colorado system has its own chancellor and campus administration . The chancellors, in turn, report to the president of the CU System. The Board of Regents of the University of Colorado approves the overal l direction provided by the presidenc of the system. The system presidenc is both the chief academic and chief administrative officer of the university. The president has responsibility for the administration of the encire university under the policies described by the Board of Regencs or under law . The U n iversity of Colorado at Boulder serves more than 26,000 students enrolled in under graduate, graduate , and professional programs. The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs serves more than 6,600 students in the Pikes Peak region, offering undergraduate, graduate, and p rofessional prog r ams. The combined University of Colorado at Denver and Health Sciences Cencer now serves more than 27,000 studencs in Denver and Aurora . Students on the Downtown Denver Campus enroll in undergraduate and graduate studies as well as in n ovative professional programs. Students on the Health Sciences campuses receive educatio n and training in medical, dencal, nur sing, pharmacy, and allied health professions. The Downcown Denver Campus ' 12,200 studencs enroll in undergraduate and graduate studies, as well as innovative professional programs. CU 201 0: A Vision for the Future Vision CU 2010 is a bold systemwide agenda intended to map the future of the University of Colorado for the next decade. CU 2010 consists of five goals: creating a university without walls , creating a culture of excellence, increasing resources and usin g them wisely , supportin g diversity, and incegrating our infrastructure. Creating a University Without WallsWe must focus on multidisciplinary efforts that involve all four CU campuses and serve as models for the university of the 21st Century . The university of the future must break dow n the walls that separate the disciplines, colleges, and campuses within the system, the walls that separate students and researchers, campus and community. Creating a Culture ofExceUence-Since it ' s impossib l e to be great at everything all at once, each camp u s is working to target areas for national prominence. Boulder should be among the top 10 percenc of public institutions without a medical school i n the AAU ranlcings. UCDHSC Catalog 2005-06


6 / Our University, Our Campus VISION As the Downtown Denver Campus of the University of Colorado system, we interpret our mission as advancing the creation, dissemination , and application of knowledge in a culture of excellence . Its boundaries are flexible and permeable, with knowledge flowing to and from the schools and colleges, the community , and the world. This view is global rather than local as UCDHSC seeks to link teaching , research, and service to the major issues of the 21st Century. VALUES •!> mutual respect for all members of the university community-students, faculty , and staff •:• excellence in all areas •!> collaboration among faculty, students, staff, and the community in the learning process •!> the power of community in teaching , learning , and scholarship •:• creativity , innovation, and flexibility •:• service to the public good •:• personal growth and professional success •:• cultural diversity and enrichment GOALS •:• to build partnerships to strengthen core academic programs •:• to build and focus resources on academic goals •:• to fos ter academic innovations and excellence by defining a clear niche In addition to these general goals , Vision CU 2010 is a bold systemwide agenda intended to map the future of the University of Colorado for the next decade: •:• creating a university without walls •:• creating a culture of excellence •:• in c reasing resources and using them wisel y •:• supporting diversity •:• integrating our infrastructure For details on Vision CU 2010 , see previous page . Colorado Springs should be the number one compre h ensive regional university in the United States with an enrollment of 10,000 to 12,000 students by the year 2010. UCDHSC should be one of the top 10 urban research universities in the country, and the number one public health sciences center in the nation within 10 years. Increasing Resources and Using Them Wisely-CU needs to provide more scholarship money to attract Colorado ' s best and brightest s tudents. We also need to fund more endowed chairs and professorships , to build and retain our outstanding faculty-our number one human resource. We must also leverage our expertise in technology to help fund state-of the-art technology for our students, faculty, and staff. The university will refocus its fund-raising campaign to address these goals , and we'll con tinue to work in close partnership with the state of Colorado and with our delegation in Washington to increase federal support . Supporting Diversity -By the second quarter of the 21st Century, there will be no m a jority population in the United States. That' s why it ' s so important for CU to educate all of the citizens of Colorado-and the world-who meet our qualifications for admission. Our programs should also reflect our global community in international program offerings, such as expanded opportunities for students, faculty, and staff exchanges and jointly sponsored degrees with universities around the world. Organizational Abilities and Structures •:• organizational entrepreneurship •> innovations in support oflearning •:• ability to create effective partnerships •:• ability to assess actions •:• streamlined processes and policies to reduce barriers (• fair and equitable compensation system •:• forums to create extramural alliances across colleges, the community, and the world •> an incubator to develop new interdisciplinary projects and programs will expand CU Online so students can take a much broader variety of courses and complete more requirements and degree programs online. And we will benchmark CU' s business practices with the best models from the corporate world. Our plan is ambitious-and for good reason. With the rapid pace of progress that defines our world, the year 2010 will be here sooner than we think. Now is the time to envision our future and set our goals . The decade ahead will be the most exciting one yet. THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO AT DENVER AND HEALTH SCIENCES CENTER The University of Colorado at Denver and Health Sciences Center (UCDHSC) joins the strengths of a comprehensive campus in downtown Denver with the research and advanced health care programs of the Health Sciences Center. The combined UCDHSC awards more than 3,400 degrees each year and more graduate degrees than any other school in Col orado . UCDHSC is the only public university in Colorado's capital city . The Downtown Denver Campus' proxim i ty to the commercial and governmental hub of Denver enables the uni versity to offer the combined excellence of its faculty and the opportunities afforded by a vital metropolitan environment. Integrating Our Infrastructure-CU will work toward an integrated student information system, so our students can easily transfer to or take courses on other campuses. An integrated student services system will enhance our systemwide technology and human resources services. We UCDHSC is committed to becoming the nation ' s premier urban research university. In urban environments, universities have a particular responsibility to adapt their traditional roles to the development, assessUCDHSC Catawg 2005-06 J

Students come from throughout :Olorado, around the country, and overseas to pursue a respected ducational program with a convenient schedule of offerings in a vely urban environment. Located on the Auraria Higher Education Center, the downtown :unpus ofUCDHSC is just steps away from Denver's historic Lower )owntown district with irs myriad entertainment , cultural and sports enues. Because UCDHSC shares the campus with two other institutions, : udenrs have access to facilities and resources comparable to those of much trger public universities. They also enjoy the wide array of internship nd job opportunities available in the vital, growing Denver area .. listory In 1912, the University of Colorado's Department of Correspondence nd Extension was established in Denver to meet the needs of the capital ity's burgeoning population. As the breadth of course offerings expanded, >did the demand for degree-granting status. From 1956 until1976, the lenv er Extension Center operated out of the former Denver Tramway : ompany Building at 14th and Arapahoe Streets. This building had ouse d the corpo rat e offices and car barns of a hug e streetcar system iscontinued in 1950. Designated a landmark on the National Register fHistoric Places in 1994, the Tramway Building was later renovated tto a hotel and restaurant. The D e n ver Extension Center was renamed the University of Q l ora d o-Denver Center in 1965 , and by 1969 , 23 fields of undergrad ne study and 11 of graduate s tudy were offered. In 19 72, the Colorado eneral Assembly appropriated support to bui l d the Auraria Campus, U-Denver's current site. That same year the Denver Center was renamed t e University of Colorado at Denver . In 1974 CU-Denver began anting degrees designated as the University of Colorado at Denver . Between 1973 and 1976, the state built the Auraria Higher ducation Center, shared by the University of Colorado at Denver , !etropolitan State College of Denver , and the Community College of ' enver. In 1988 , CU-Denver moved into irs first custom-made n ew >me, the 257,000-square-foot No rth Classroom Building , l ocated : tween Speer Boulevard and 12th Street , Larimer and Lawrence reers. Hoover Berg Desmond, a Denver architectural firm, designed .is post-modern, red brick structure, featuring a distinctive glass block rium an d large outdoor clocks. Formed by a vote of the board of regents in July 2004, the new niversity of Colorado at Denver and Health Scie nces Center combines e stre ngth s of the compre hen sive Downtown Denver Campus with e research and advanced health care degree programs and teaching c ility of the Health Sciences Center campuses. >le ond Mission In the Colorado Revised Statutes, the University of Colorado at enver is d e fined as follows: The Downtown Denver Campus of the University of Colorado shall be a mprehensive baccalaureate liberal arts and sciences institution with high (mission standards.

Institutions are bound b y the provisions of this statute and are not free to make exceptio n s to the rules set forth . Students are i n itiall y classified as in-state or o u r-of-state for tuition purposes at the time of application. The classification is based upon informa tion furnis hed by the student and from other rel evant sources. After the student's sta tu s is det ermine d , it remain s unchanged in the absence of satisfactory evidence to the contrary . Once a student is classified as a non-resident for tuition purposes , the student must petition for a change in classification . Petitions must be submitted NO LATER THAN THE FIRST OFFICIAL DAY OF CLASSES of the term for which the student wishes to be classified as a resident. It is preferred that petitions be received 30 days prior to the beginning of the term. Late petitions will not be co nsid ered until the next semester. Specific information may be obtained from th e Office of Admissions. The final decision regarding tuition status rests with the univer sity. Questions regarding residence ( tuition) status should be referred only to the T u ition C l assification Offi ce r . Opinions of oth e r pe r sons are not official or binding upon the university . Additional information is available in the brochure Classification oJStudents for Tuition Purpous, which may be obtained from the Admissions Office. BASIC REQUIREMENTS The statute provides that an in-state student is one who has been a legal domicil iary of Color ado for one year or more immedia tely preceding the beginning of the term for which the instate classification is being so u g ht. Persons over 23 years of age or who are emanci pate d estab l ish their own legal domicile . Those who are under 23 years of age and un emancipated assume the domicile of their parent or co urta ppointed legal guardian. An unemancipat e d minor's parent m u st, therefore, have a legal domicile in Color a do for one year or more before the minor may be clas sifie d as an in-state student for tuition purposes. ESTABLISHING DOMICILE D omicile is establis hed when one has a perm anent place of habitation in Colorado and the intention of making Colorado one's true, fixed , an d permanent home and place of habitation . The tuition s tatut e places the burden of establishi ng a Colorado domicile on the person seeking to estab l i s h the domicile . T h e que stio n of intent i s one of doc u menta b l e fact and needs to be s h own by substantial connections with th e state s uffi cient to evide nce s uch intent. Legal domicil e in Colorado for t u ition purposes beg ins th e d ay after connections with Colorado are made sufficient to evidence one ' s intent . The most common ties with t he state are ( 1 ) change of driver ' s license to Colorado, (2) change of automobi l e registration to Colorado , (3) Colorado voter registration , (4) permanent emplo yment in Colorado , and mo s t important, (5) payment of state income taxes as a resident by one whose inc o me is sufficient to be taxed. Caution: payment or filing of back taxes in no UCDHSC Catalog 2005-06

In order ro qualify for in-state tuition for a given term , the 12-month waiting period (whic h begins when the l egal domicile is established) must be over by the first day of classes for the term in question. If one ' s 12-month waiting period expires during the semester, in-state tuition cannot be granted until the next semester. Resident Tuition for Active Duty Military Personnel The Colorado legislature approved resident tuition for active duty military personnel on permanent duty assignment in Colorado and for their dependents . ELIGIBLE STUDENTS MUST BE CERTIFIED EACH TERM.

At the time the verific a tion form is certified in the Records Office , the student's bill will be adjusted to reflect the resident tuition rat e . Students who hav e been certified remain classified as nonresi dents for tuition purposes and must petition ro change their status once they establish permanent ties to Colorado.

Applicarion completion is defined as having all of the required documenr and the results of th e need analys i s (Free App lication for Federal Studen Aid) inro the Office of Financial Aid . General financial aid is awarded ro needy students who meet the priority date until all of the funds are commirred for th e year. If the file is completed after April!, then award will probabl y be limited to Federal Pell Grant (for needy undergraduate students only) and/or outside student loans (Fe der a l Stafford Loan or Federal Parents Loan ) . Application for finan cial aid must be made each year; application materials are available in January of each year. It is the student' s responsibi l ity robe sure app l ication materials are complete. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid for application forms and comp l ete details . All financial aid policies and procedures arc s ub ject ro change due to revisions i n federal and state laws , regulations, and guidelines. Qualification Financial Need-Mosr financial aid awards are based on the concept< financial need . Financial need is calculated as cost of attendance (ruition fees, books , living expenses) minus family contriburion (sr udent/spous conrriburion and parenrs ' contribution for dependent students). The cost of attendance is the estimated cost to attend UCDHSC, including tuition and fees, room and board , books and supplies, trans portation , and per sonal expe nses. The Office of Financial Aid deter mines stan dard budgets based upon average tuition and fees charged ar oth er budger i tems established by the Colorado Commission on Hight Education. For 2004-2005, the following monthly budgers were used for room and b oard, tra nsport ation, and p e r sonal expe nses: $591 for s tud ents living at home with par e nrs; $984 for students not living with parents. Resident tuition and fees for a full-time student were approximarely $2,030 per semester, and non-resident tuition and fees were approxi mately $8 , 000 per semester. These amounts will probably increase for the 2005-2006 school year. Independent Student-The federal government provides specific guidelines that define a self-s upporting student for financial aid pur poses. If a student is classified as self-supporting, then the student's parental information is not cons id ered when the calculation offamily contribution is made . For 2005-2006, a self-s up porting studenr i s one who i s 24 years old (born before 1 I 1 /82) or one who meets one of the following conditions: 1. Graduate student 2. Marr i e d st ud enr 3. Studenr wi th legal dependents other than a spouse 4. Veteran of the U.S. armed forces 5. Orphan or ward of the court These conditions may be appealed ro the Offic e of Financial Aid if unusual circumstances exist. Conract the office for appeal guidelines. If the student/spouse contrib u tion plus the parenrs' contribution is equal to or greater than the cost of arrendance, then the studenr willm qualify for nee d b ased financial aid. The contributions from the studendspouse and from the parents ar calculated by a standardized formula that is required by federal law. The formula co n siders income, savings and other assets, family size, number of children in postsecondary school, and other factors. Sruder may appeal for s p ecial consideration if they are experie n cing unusual circumstances . Financial aid is intended ro supplement and not rep lac financial contributions from the student and parents .

GRADE POINT AVERAGE The grade point average (GPA) is computed by multiplying the credit points per hour (for exa mple, B = 3) by th e number of h ours for each course. Total the hours, total the credit points, and divide the total points by the total hours. Grades of P, NC, * * * , W, IP, Jw, and IF are nor included in the grade point average. IFs that are not comp l eted within one year are calculated as Fin the GPA. If a co urse is repeated, all grades earne d are used in d etermi ning the grade point average. Grades received at another instit ution are not included in the Univers ity of Colorado GPA. Undergraduate, grad uat e , and non-degree graduate GPAs are calculated separately .

Architecture I 57 Retention of Student Work The College of Architecture and Planning reserves the right to retain any student project submitted in fulfillment of class requirements for whatever period of rime ir deems necessary . This retained work is used to provide accrediting agencies with tangible evidence of performance, to serve as additional visual aid material in presentations to other students, and to contribute to possible educational exhibits requested by the university community and the general public . PROGRAMS OF STUDY Architecture Chair , Department of Architecture, Phillip Gallegos, 303-556-3282 Assistant Chair, Undergraduate Architecture Pre-Professional Program, Allen Harlow, 303-492-5677 The architecture program's mission is to lead in th e discovery , communication, and application of knowledge in the discipline of architecture. The program aims to excel in the education of irs stude nts, in the research and creative endeavors of its faculty, and in service to the community. To respond to this mission , the program has developed a unique intellectual, educational, and architectural cu lture. First of all , the program celebrates irs place in a very special set of landscapes-urbanized Denver and rhe Front Range , and the spec tacul ar natural landscape of the high plains and the Rocky Mountains. The architecture program therefore focuses nor only on the design of buildings, but also on the interactions berween buildings and their urban and natural settings. Second , the program examines the interplay between architectural form and the complex cultural and technological context in which architects operate. As a result of these dominant concerns, the program has created an academic environment that is intellectually stimulating and educ ationally challenging, and that aims to ed u cate students who w ill become leaders in the discipline and profession of architecture. The Department of Architecture, along with the Department of Planning and Design, offers a Bachelor of Environmental Design (BEnvd) on the Boulder campus. The Department of Architecture also offers two graduate degrees on rhe Denver campus: the Master of Architecture (MArch) and the Master of Urban Design (MUD). The following statement from the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), which is responsible for accredit in g all architecture programs in the United States, should help a student choose the appropriate degree program: " In the United States, most sta t e registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite for licensure. The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NMB), which is the sole agency authorized to accredit U .S. professional degree programs in armirecture, recognizes two types of degrees: the Bamelor of Architecture and the Master of Architecture. A program may be granted a five-year, three-year , or two -year term of accreditation, dep ending on irs degree of conformance with established educational standards. " Master's degree programs may consist of a pre-professional under graduate degree and a professional graduate degree , which when earned sequentially, comprise an accredited professional education. However, the pre-professional degree is not, by itself, recognized as a n accredited degree. The NAAB grants candidacy status to new programs that have developed viable plans for achieving initial accreditation. Candidacy status indicates that a program should be accredited within six years of achieving candidacy, if irs plan is properly implemented." The pre-professional degree offered by the College of Architecture and Planning is the BEnvd. The professional degree offere d by the college is the Master of Architecture (MArch), which is fully accredited bytheNAAB. UCDHSC Catalog 2005-06

POST-PROFESSIONAL PROGRAMS The Post-Professional Program The Post-Professional Degree Program is a mid-career , post-professional intensive course for those individuals in the design fields who seek to expand their knowledge and to a d vance their professional careers. In thi s program, stude nts have the opportunity to study recent developments in their design fields resulting from advances in information technology, new theories and methods , and emergent discoveries and associatio n s . The program currently offers two primary areas of study , the Master of Architecture II and the Master of Urban Design degree programs . Each of these programs has a research orientation and agenda, and their gene ral intent is to create an educational context within which the fundamental practices of arch it ect ur e and urbanism can be exam in ed, advance d , and extended. The programs have been designed to be both flexible and interdisciplinary so as to provide students with a broad range of options that can accommodate an d respond to eac h student ' s own intere sts and study agenda through coursework , independent study, or optional training. Post-Professional Program: The Moster of Architecture II The Master of Architecture II i s an advanced degree prog r am that provides its students with a range of opportunities for exploring and extending their knowledge of the practice of architecture. Students applying for admission t o the program must have been awarded a five-year or six-year first-professional degree in architecture. They may enter the Master of Architect ur e II program i n any semester of the academic year. UCDHSC Catalog 2005-06


60 / Coilegt of Architecture and Planning The Master of Architecture II program does not offer an NAAB first-professional degree; it is an advanced studies program for those who already hold this first-professional degree. Students in the program must complete 30 hours of credit in required, recommended, and elective coursework to qualifY for the Master of Architecture II degree. To be eligible for graduation from the program, students must complete 12 credit hours of advanced design studio (ARCH 6150/6151 or UD 6600/6601) in the degree project sequence an d 12 credit hours in required and/or focus-area coursework particular to their area of study. The remaining 6 credit hours are elective coursework. A typical sequence of coursework within a focus area l eading to the award of the Master of Architecture II degree is as follows: SEMESTER ONE Design Studio : 6 credits Focus-area required/recommended coursework: 6 credits Elective coursework: 3 credits SEMESTER TWO Design Studio : 6 credits Focus-area required/recommended coursework: 6 credits Elective coursework: 3 credits Dual Degree Option Students may enroll in a dual degree program with Landscape Architect ur e (MArch and MLA). landscape Architecture Chair, Department of Landscape Architecture, Gene Bressler 303-5 56-3382 The department's mission is education, scholarly research , and service in the discipline and practice oflandscape architecture. The program of study prepares students to engage question of and relationships berween land, landscape , people, and cui cure. It prepares students for the current practice of land scape architecture and provides a healthy setting for students to question , invent, create, rest, and advance the knowledge and capacity of the profession. At the program ' s heart is design , as it embodies the processes that lead to the p lanning and design oflandscapes and that, in turn, results in diverse and assessab l e outcomes of consequences and value. The program's " laboratories " are the urban, suburban, rural , and wilderness landscapes associated with the Mountain, Front Range, High Prairie, and Western Slope regions of Colorado. These areas present diverse culrural and environmental situations and opportunities in which to s h ape regional l y responsive landscape design and planning. Imperatives within the public and private realms of these landscapes fuel the academic and research agenda. While representing an accessib l e spectrum of good and bad examples and situations to study , rhe knowledge and experiences derived apply globally to multiple scales and cultures. The cur rent discourse of critical topics includes the following: • the challenges associated with urban and suburban growth and development • the planning and design leading to the making of healthy and sustainable cities , communities and homes • the role and making of civic infrastructure • the use and conservation of precious land and water resources • the reclamation and preservation of disturbed and historic landscapes • the recognition and application of natural and urban conditions and values of the region It is within this context that UCDHSC's Department of Landscape Architecture links theory with practice, history with change, technology with invention , and designers with their constituents. UCDHSC Catalog 2005-06 Program Objectives Specific educational objectives of the program are as follows: • to develop excellence in the design process and the creation of designed artifacts that lead to a variety of outcomes. Particular emphasis is given to exp l ori n g the strateg i es, methods and skills necessary to study, synthesize, experiment with and eval u ate design precedents, design , and design processes . • to learn and develop competence in the core themes of the profession that include landscape architectural theory and precedent, technologies and materials, natural and cultural systems , and communications and inquiry media. Particular emphasis is placed on studying the means to d evelop ideas, to convey val u es, and to criticize work. • to l earn and utilize methods that enable the student to engage independent research and design investigation based on rigorous , or i ginal, and creative thinking, which l eads to the compl etion of definitive scholar l y work and/or enhances the outcome of creative works . Particular emphasis is placed on integrating research assign ments within stated requirements of design studios, support classes, a nd thesis opti ons . • To provide a working knowledge of the institutional framework within which the design process occurs. Particular emphasis is placed on building a strong understanding of professional practice and the skills required therein including management, leadership, marketing, ethical conduct , and legal issues. • to provide services u sing methods that apply to and extend course work, research , and creative work to real world situations. Particular emphasis is placed on participating in opportunities to implement , enhance, demonstrate , communicate, and evaluate ideas and skill .s, and to provide measurable benefits for constituents an d ourselves.

Urban and Regional Planning Chair, Department of Planning and Design, Fahriye Sancar, 303-556-3382 Urban and regional planners in the United States and other countrie seek to identify social needs and environmental capacities, anticipate change and its impact on communities , shape the pattern of human settlements, provide essential infrastructure, maintain viable economie and achieve and preserve sustainable communities that are suitably fir to their natural surroundings. Study in planning considers how social needs are legitimated, knowledge about communities and regions is compiled and analyzed , possible courses of action are evaluated, plans are formulated, implementation is transacted through the means of education, investment , negotiation and regulation, and how plans ' consequences are tracked over time. These tasks require a high order of ability: ro amass and manipulate information , to represent and model essential phenomena and processe: to simulate furu res, and to judge outcomes having diverse dimensions. They also require the ability to poruay and communicate key concepts diagnoses , and actions , and to harness knowledge about all the key actors on the sce n e in order ro understand their needs, motives , and possible responses to th e public actions that plans provoke . Underlying these classes of abilities i s a base of knowledge that easil y overreaches th b ounds of any one discipline. Planners must understand theories regarding urban and regional process , concepts of presentatio n , communication and negotiarion, technologies for the depiction and manipulation of spatial informacion mean s by which to document, judge , and forecast change in urban systems , private economic motives and constraints, the behavioral inclinations of all the major classes of players on the urban scene , the mesh of laws that empower planning and govern private action , and the broader political economy of regional systems. Needless to say, the education of planners can only begin in the university. It must be a life-long pursuit , and planning programs are becoming in c reasingly supportive of the continuing education needs of professionals. Iris the intellectual excitement of this ongoing pursui 1 of knowledge that draws many to the field. The Department of Planning and Design , along with the Department of Architecture , offers a Bachelor of Environmental Desig (BEnvd) degree on the Boulder campus . The Department of Planning and Design also offers the Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) graduate degree on the Downtown Denver Campus. The Master of Urban and Regional Planning is fully accredited by the national Planning Accreditation Board, and prepares students for professional careers in planning and for further study . For further derails on the BEnvd, see the University of Colorado at Boulder catalog. Additional details about the . master ' s program follow . THE MASTER OF URBAN AND REGIONAL PLANNING (MURP) Prerequisites Students are expected to have achieved a basic level of computer lireracy, and should be familiar with PC or Apple operating systems. A graphics workshop is recommended for students who do not have a background in drawing and model building. The workshop is scheduled each year before the beginning of the fall semester. Program Requirements The Master of Urban and Regional Planning is the college ' s accredin degree for students intending to practice as planners. With no advance standing , candidates for the MURP degree must complete a minimum


of 51 credit hours of graduate work, including all core courses (27 credit hours) , a concentration ( 15 credit hours minimum), and additional :leccives (9 credit hours ). Ente ring students who have engaged in th e study or practice of planning elsewhere may peririon the faculty during their initial semester to det e rmine whether any credit will be awarded or degree requir ements relaxed as a resulr of these prior act i v ities. A maximum of 27 credits of coursework can be applied for advanced standing. Students who receive th e co llege's Bachelor of Environmental Design : BEnvd) degree on the Bould e r campus and who have maintained a ::;pA of ar least 3.0 will be admitted to rhe MURP with advanced ;randing. These students can ea rn the MURP d egree after completing a :ninimum of 42 credit hours , which will include the core courses and an tpproved concentration.

Thesis work wiJl substitute for Studio II. ,reas of Concentration The concentrations and e l ective courses enable students to explore in l epth an area of special interest. Students should, however , build on the xpertise that they alre ad y p ossess . This can be done by either focusing on related specialty, or by incr ease d specialization in a previously acquired rea of expertise. The program supports four official concentrations: 1) physical planning, (2) e nvironmental planning, (3) economic develpment planning , and (4) urban design . A set offoundarion co urses is ientified in each concentration, plus additional s upporting electives. Physical Planning Concentration: Physical planning addresses the patial arrangement of the env ironment , from rhe scale of th e project ) the scale of the re gio n , and its firness for human activities. Ph ysical Ianners establ i sh the pol icy and r eg ularory context for design develop lent, practicing as land use o r co mprehensive planners , or in spec ialties Jch as preservat ion, transportation or open space planning , real estate evelopment, a nd urban design . Environmental Planning C oncentration : All urban and r egio nal Ianning actions impact th e env ironment in some manner, and rlVironmental pla nn e r s must manage these impacts, both pro -ac tively nd re-actively . The environmental planning concentration introduces Ianners to the policy and legislative i ssues surrounding the environ lenral implication s of planning actions, as well as ro m ethods for their ;sessment, control, and mitigation. Economic D eve lopment Planning Concentration: &onomic evelopm ent aims to amass within communities and regions the :sourcesjobs , capital, tax base-needed ro sus tain or improve the uality oflife and insure opportunities for all within the privat e eco nomy, tcilirared through appropriate public actions and services. Planners PhD in Design and Planning I 63 foster economic change as diagnosticians, strategists, and promoters, gauge growth's effect in light of environmental capacities, manage its social b e n efits, mitigate its negative consequences, and fashion its imp rint on the physical landscape oflocaliries, regions, scares, and nations. Students purs uing chis concentration s hould seek as well to become conversant with the essentials of physical or enviro nmental plan ning. Urban Design Concentration: Planners are called upon with increasing frequency to organize spaces at a scale greater than thar of a building sire, bur less than that of an entire community. This concentration provides the essential abilities needed to contrib ute to the development of these intermediate-scale spaces. Among these are skills in spatial analysis, design sy nthesis , real estate finance, and graphic expression. In a ddition to the four official conce ntrations, students have the c hoice of defining their own concentration. Course Sequence FIRST YEAR Fall Semester (12 c redit hours) URP 5501-3. URP 5510-3.

PhD in Design and Planning Program Director, WiJlem Van Vliet, 303-492-5015 The D e partm ent of Architecture , the Department of Planning and Design, and the Department of Landscape Architecture share the idea that the complex problems of the built environment are b esr addressed through collaboration among the various design and planning disciplines, and through developing bodies of knowledge about the built environment . To further these ends, the departments and program jointly offer the advanced r esea rch degree , the PhD in Design and Planning. The college's interdisciplinary docroral program ex amines the complex facrors th at help sha pe the plarrn e d and constructed environment. The program offers three a reas of specialization: 1. Land Use and Environmental Planning and Design Work in this area focuses on purposeful intervention in the physical environment, including mechanism s and pro cedures such as land use contro ls, design review processes and standards, and envi ronmental UCDHSC Catalog 2005-06


64 / College of Architecture and Planning policies. It also deals with the planning and design of housing, neigh borhoods, cities, regions, and the interrelationships among residential, economic, recreational, and transportation systems. 2. Design and Planning Processes and Practices Work in this area focuses on the theory and methods of planning and design and the development of models and tools to understand and support decision processes and design practices . This area of specialization also includes the examinatio n of practice-related issues such as the development of alternative and appropriate building technologies , energy-efficient designs , manufactured housing, and the design/build process. 3. History, Theory, and Criticism of the Environment Work in this area involves critical analysis of architecture, urban design , landscape architecture, and planning, and of the theories , processes, and policies that have regulated these fields. Whether focusing on contemporary or past environments, the aim is to understand and explain them in relation to indi vidual a nd cultural values, and in their cultural and technological contexts. Prerequisites Applicants must hold at l east a bachelor's degree , although most will have also completed a master's degree . Field specialization and back ground are open, and may include architecture, landscape architecture, architectural engineering, urban design, geography , urban economics, environmental law , urban sociology, real estate, management science, computer science, public administration, or environmental psychology. A successful applicant will have an undergraduate grade point average of at least 3.0 (out of a possible 4 points), and a graduate grade point average of 3.5 or better. If students do not ho l d a professional or a pre professional degree in a design or planning field, they will have to complete 12 hours of upper level undergraduate coursework in the College of Architecture and Planning. They will have to obtain in each of these courses a grade of B or higher. These courses are to be chosen from a selected list in consul ration with the st udent' s faculry advisor, and are to be completed within rwo years of admission to the program. A student must have completed 12 hours in an undergraduate program in one of the following prerequisites. The one that applies will depend upon the student ' s intended area of specialization. In exceptional cases, a student may complete this requirement by taking additional under graduate cou r ses and gaining a grade of B or higher in eac h course. The courses are to be chosen from a selected list in consultation with the student's faculty advisor, and are to be completed within rwo years of admission to the program . They may count toward fulfilling the degree requirements . • Social and Beha vioral Sciences • Environmental and Natural Sciences • Engineering • Humanities A student must also have completed one of the following prerequisites. The one that applies will d epend upon rhe student's int ended area of specialization. In except ional cases, a st udent may complete this requirement by takin g additio nal un dergraduate courses and gaini ng a grade of B or higher in each of these courses. The courses are to be chosen from a selected list in consultation with the student ' s faculry advisor, and are to be completed within rwo years of admission to the program. They ma y count roward fulfilling the degree requirements. • Statistics. Including probability theory, parametric and non parametric methods, and acquai ntance with basic multivariate techniques. A minimum of3 hours. • Mathematics. Including differential equat i ons, finite mathematics, algor data structures, or other appropriate courses. A minimum of3 hours . • Language. Ability ro read at least one foreign language relevant ro the intended dis ertation. UCDHSC Catalog 2005-06 • Computer. Background in comp uter -aided design (CAD) or geographi information systems (GIS). A minimum of3 hours. The applicability of a student's prior coursework will be decided by the graduate studies committee upon review of a student's transcript and additional materials . If the student does not have the requisite ed u cational background, grade point average, or GRE scores, the st uden may be admitted on a conditio nal or provisional basis, and additional coursework may be required in accordance with Graduate School rules Program Requirements The PhD req uires 76 credit hours. Up to 18 transfer credits may be approved for students admitted with a master's degree. Students in the program will also have to meet the academic residency requirement, which requires six semesters of scholarly work beyond the attainment of an acceptable bachelor's degree . Two semesters of residence credit may be allowed for a master's degree from another institution of approved stan ding. However, at l east four semesters of resident credit, rwo of which must be consec utive in one academic year, must be earne• for work take n at thi s university. Completion of the program therefore takes 3 or 4 years, depending on prior coursework. The PhD program has five components: (1) Core Curriculum, (2) Research Specialization, (3) Minor Field of Study , (4) Electives , and (5: Dissertation. The Core of 10 hours consists of seminars and colloq uia on the theories and research methods in the fields of design and plannin{ All students, no matter what their specialization, must rake the core in the first rwo years of their residence . For the Research Specialization, each student must rake ar least 12 hours of coursework in one of the program's three specialization areas; i.e. , land use and environmental planning and design ; design and planning processes and practices; and hi story, theory, a nd criticism of the built environment. One of the courses must be an advanced m e thods class. The Minor Field of provides stude nts w ith a strong background that supports their chosen research emphasis. Ir requires completion of at least 12 hours of related coursework that provides in-depth knowledge in a relevant area. Elective coursework consists of 12 hours of additional study in areas related to the dissertation topic. For the researc h specialization, the minor field of s tudy, and the electives , students develop an individualiu course of study to reflect their specific foci and career aspirations. The required coursework is determined jointly by the student, the faculty advisor , and committee members. The Dissertation requires 30 hours of coursework . S tu dents are expected to define a research question in planning an d de s ign , to identify the researc h strategy to be u sed for answering this que stion, to conduct the research, and to write up the project in the form of a dissertation. A student is guided in this process by a dissertation advisor, and by the additional members who composf the student's dissertation commit tee . Students must register for a minimum of 5 dissertation credits each semester of thei r di ssertation work. If unable to r egis ter for at least 5 credits , they must request a l eave of absence from the PhD program until able to complete the minimum dissertation requirement . Studen may rake up to a year ' s leave of absence before they are disenrolled fron the program. Evaluations and Examinations Successful candidates for the PhD in Design and Planning pass four points of evalua tion : (1) Preliminary Exam, (2) Comprehensive Exam , (3) Doctoral Dissertation, and (4) Final Exam. By the end of the first semester of residence, the student devises a degree plan, which is approved by the graduate st udies committee. A Preliminary Exam the evaluates the st ud ent's initial progress through the program. The Comprehensive Exam is an examination based on papers prepared b y the candidate that survey rhe literature of the field and that set out a proposed dissertation. This exam rakes place afrer rwo semesters of resi dency, and before the student becomes a candidate for the PhD degree After advancement to candidacy, the student prepares a Doctoral Dissertation, which offers original research in the student's chosen


field. When the college ' s dissertation committee approves the final dissertation submission, ir conduces a Final Exam based on the student's research. This exam is open ro the public. Course Sequence FIRST YEAR Studenrs develop their degree plan, rake 5 semester hours of the required core curriculum, rake additional courses in their specialty area, make up any prerequisite courses , and rake the preliminary exam. SECOND YEAR Srudenrs rake the remaining core courses, continue to rake electives in their minor and specialty areas, begin literature surveys, and prepare for their comprehensive exam . THIRD AND FOURTH YEAR Students complete their literature surveys, prepare a dissertation proposal, and rake the comprehensive exam. After completion of the comprehensive exam, the rest of the third and fourth years is spent researching and writing the dissertation. Once the dissertation has been accepted, students rake the final e xam. Master of Urban Design Program Information, Fahri y e Sancar, 303-556-3382 The Master of Urban Design is an interdisciplinary advanced degree program in which srudenrs articulate issues that integrate the fields of architecture, landscape architecture , urban planning , transportation, real estate, and political affairs. The mission is ro address rhe rota! realm of urbanization through research, collaboration and leadership develop ment within the inclusive "public domain ." The program makes full use of its setting in the core of downtown Denver, and explores the evolving environments of setrlements , villages , rowns , cities , metropolises , and megalopolises in Colorado as wide ranging planning laborarories for the studio-based projecrs or thesis studies. The urban design problem-solving opportunities are further enhanced by the extensive public-private connections the college has established throughout a rapidly growing state . There are three general plans of study: 1) a 30-credit-hour program for students who have received a five-or six-year professional degree in architecture , landscape architecture, or planning ( i .e. BArch , MArch, MLA, MURP); 2) for international students, a four-year accredited professional degree and other accepted qualifications would permit entry into a modified one-calendar-year long program that requires 39 credit hours for graduation; 3) a 66-credit-hour program, including 6 hours of summer internship , is also available for srudenrs who hold a pre-professional (non-accredited design) degree ; 4) for srudenrs from all other undergraduate degree programs , a cusromized three-year curriculum of96 credit hours is required including an internship component of 6 credit hours during one summer. In all cases fall semester is the preferred entry time . The emphases of the urban design degree focuses on three primary concerns that affect both horizontal and vertical developments in tactical and strategic rimeframes: I. hisrory and theory of urbanization in the inclusive public domain I. systems and processes used in the making of the urbanized public domain II . designing the urban public domain The ultimate goal of the program is ro educate studenrs robe effective n rhe public domain as problem originarors , venture designers, idea inkers, and decision makers. These urban design degree graduates hrough creative problem solving , management, advocacy , and impleenrarion can achieve oursranding ends in the profe ssional , public, and evelopment process. urse Sequence 30 credit hours with professional degrees) Semester One (15 credit hours) I.

" AtA -Glance: Primary Differences Between Recording Arts/Mus i c Business and MIS/Tech or MIS/Business Focus R ECORDIN G ARTS/MUSIC BUSINESS: • Recording Arts and Music Business are performance-based degree s meaning they require an entrance audition and a much higher !eve of musicianship and performance as parr of the curriculum. • Recording Arts and Music B u siness are designed for students who intend to be practicing musicians after graduation, with a very strong knowledge of the tech or business side of the industry. • R ec ording Arts and Music Business st udents are required to co mpl ete more musicianship and performance-area credits than MIS/Tech or MIS/Business students. They will nor be required to complete as many tech-or busin ess-base d electives as MIS/Tech 01 MIS/Business students.


MUSIC INDUSTRY STUDIES/TECH AND MIS/BUSINESS • MIS/Tech and MIS/Business focus are non -performance degrees, and therefore do not require an entrance audition, and the required level of musicianship and performance is much lower . • MIS/Tech and MIS/Business are designed for students who may or may not be musicians when they enter, but who don't intend to be practicing musicians after graduation. Rather , they intend to focus solely on the tech or business side. These students are more interested in working behind-the-scenes . • MIS/Tech or MIS/Business students will nor be required to complete as many musicianship and performance-area credits as Recording Arts or Music Business students. They will be required to complete more techor business-based electives than Recording Arts or Music Business students. Students are encouraged to consult a faculty member or CAM Advisor to talk about the differences in curriculum, to determine which major is best suited to them.

DEPARTMENT OF VISUAL ARTS Chair: Joann Brennan Office: CU-Denver Building , 8th floor Phone : 303-556-22 7 9 Faculty P r o fess or: John Hull As s o cia te Professor: Joann Br enna n , Moyo Okediji Assistant Pr ofessors: Mary Connelly , Brian DeLevie , Carol Golem boski, Quintin Gonzalez, Rian Kerrane P r o fess or s Emer i tus: J e r ry John so n , Charles Moone Department Overview The Department ofVis ual Arts offe r s professional instruction in six interrelated areas of study: art h istory, drawing/painting , photography , sculpture , multimedia studies, and an emphas i s in 3D graphics an d animation . The departm ent p rovi des an educat i o nal environm ent w h ere artis t s and art hi storians of promise and motivat i on can explore the horiwns of th e ir own talents in rhe midst of intense critical dialogue. This dialogue is generated by their peers ; by distinguished visiti n g artists , scho lars, and critics; and by a faculty com pri s in g artists and art historians of acknowledged accomplishment . The primary educational experience for the student i s centered on the knowledge and skills gaine d from rigorous and structured cou rses offered by the various areas of th e visual arts department, as well as the rich acade m ic offerings throughout the university. Each student is routinely exposed to many aesthetic or academic positions thro u gh e ncounters with faculty members and visitors. The visual asrs d epartme nt's efforts are devoted nor only ro the refinement of visual skills, bur ro th e articulation and cultivation of the mind. Students must bring c reative force and imagination to their own de velopment, for these qualities cannot be taught-they can only b e stimulated and appreciated. Education in the visual arrs encompasses a comprehensive knowle dge of and direct exp erie nce with the various media of drawing , painting, photogr ap hy, sc ulptur e, multimedia, and othe r forms. Supporting rhi s enterprise is the development of an under s tanding of art theory , a knowledge of the methods an d m aterials of art making, and exam in a tion of the diverse approach to exami ning the art object in h istory . Central ro the practice of arr history are critical writing and analysis. Upon comp l e ti on of all required undergraduate credits specific to a student ' s field of srudy in the v i sual arts , each student will u ndergo a p ortfo l io review and assessment interview . At the co nclu sion of the r eview, the student will be advised of the practicality of pursuing the chosen area of concentration. Grad u ati n g seniors receiving the BFA degree are r e quir ed to participate in the BFA faculty j u r i ed thesis exhibition during their last semes t er of study. Graduating seniors receiving the BA degree are required to partic ipate in the BA faculty juried thesis oral presentations during their l ast semester of st udy. These exhibit i ons are sched ul e d in the fall and spr in g terms only. USCHSC Catalog 2005-06

S ECON D ARY AREA (9hours) Accounting is increasingly diverse and linked to many business decisions . Accountant s may eventually work as syste m s design ers, chief financial officers , cost analysts, budget officers or chief executive officers. Students will be better prepared for their careers if they develop competencies in a related field , which may be chosen from a single discipline such as finance, information systems, entrepreneurship, health administration , marketing, or management . The accounting faculty strongly encourage students to gain additional expertise in finance and/or information systems. Alternatively , a self-designed secondary area might best achieve a student's individual objectives (must be approved b y the program director ). A self-designed secondary field must hav e a common theme or objective if it crosses several discip l ines. For example, a secondary area in inform ation systems might include an accounting technology course, a data base management course and a finance technology course. On the other hand , a finance secondary area might include rwo finance courses and a cost management (accounting) course or a strategic management course . When a BUSN course is a pre-requisite for a secondary area, it can be included in the secondary area by petition only. Consult a schedule planner for i nformation about current course offerings and a current catalog for course descriptions . ACCOUNTING AND INFORMATIO N S YSTEMS AUD I T AND CONTROL (AISAA() TRACK Recently, new regulatory environments hav e required companies to provide better documentation of their accounting and IT systems to i mprove the ma n agement and disclosure of their business processes for better financial and regulatory controls.

The courses within this track cover business-process management and financial controls, the emerging trends and practices in priva cy and security ; the strategies for integrating governance and compliance , and the IT organizations financial and business intelligence services.

ADVISOR Upo n enter i ng the program, each student chooses an advisor to provide mentoring and guidance throughout the program and work with the student to prepare a program of study. The advisor will also work with the student in the preparation of the first-year and second-year papers. Requests to change advisors must be approved by the program co-directors, and this happens in very rare circumstances. DOCTORAL COMMITTEE The advisor and four other members form a doctoral committee. To foster interdisciplinary work, students can have their doctoral research co-supervised by two faculty members from CSE and the Business School. There is at least one faculty member from CSE and at least one from business. One of the committee members is a representative of industry . At least one faculty committee member is from outside CSE and b u siness . If the student has difficu l ty finding an industry representative , the advisor and the program co-directors help identify an industry representative. Program Components PLAN OF STUDY A list of coursework and other requirements for the degree should be prepared with the advisor and then submitted ro the co directors for approval. The successful completion of all work indicated on the plan of stu d y is an important prerequisite for the conferring of the degree . A plan of study should be submitted for approval by the end of the first semes t er of the program. The current plan of study should be u pdated before the beginning of the second year of the program and submitted for re-approval by the co-directors. FIRSTAND SECOND-YEAR PAPERS Students prepare papers at the end of the first and second years. For part-time studentS, the timing might be longer, in which case a prior app r oval b y the advisor is required. The papers should be of q u ality ro ensure publication in conference proceedings or journals . The advisor serves as a mentor to help the student complete these papers, and each paper is submitted for approval ro the advisor. An industry representative may also be used as an evaluator. COMPREHENSIVE EXAM Within o n e semester after completing the coursework, each student will take a written comprehensive exam that requires integration of computer science and information systems knowledge . The student' s advisor, in conjunction with a co-director , will solicit questions from faculty, schedule the examination, and coordinate with faculty ro grade the exam. The exam will normally take place over two days involving 4 to 8 hours eac h day. DISSERTATION PROPOSA L As the first phase of the dissertation, each student should prepare a proposal that will be evaluated by the doctoral committee. A proposal should be ready for review at least one semester before the expected comple t ion date of the degree. The proposal is submitted for review and approval by the doctoral committee . An oral presentation of the dissertation proposal before the doctoral committee is required for approval . An approved proposal is then submitted ro the co-directors of the program for final approval. UNIVERSITY-LEVEL INSTRUGIONAL TRAINING During t h e dissertation stage of the program, each student will be required to work as a teaching assistant for at least one semester and Executive Programs/ I 07 teach a course during a second semester. These requirements ensure that each student has an adequate level of instructional training. Students who plan a university career will be encouraged ro teach more courses. The student will be compensated for these activities according ro standard university salaries . DISSERTATION COMPLETION Once the dissertation proposal is approved, each student prepares an d submitS a dissertation. The dissertation is defended before the doctoral committee in a public meeting. Final approval for the dissertation is given by a vote of the dissertation committee after the public defense. GRADUATION Upon completion of all degree requirements , including the dissertation defense, the student receives the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. Students applying through CSE receive the PhD from the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences , while students applying through Information Systems receive the PhD from the Business School.

A Brief History of the School of Education By 1965 what is now the School of Education (SOE) ar the University of Colorado at Denver and Health Sciences Center (UCDHSC) h ad emerged from irs long-t i me " extension " status (staffed by Boulder faculty) to become a branch campus of the School of Ed u cation at Boulder. The Den ver SOE was led by an associate dean who also presided over the Colorado Springs SOE branch campus. At the rime, the Denver campus was known as the CU-Denver Center. The nex t year Denver's or i ginal faculty of three held joint campus appointments. For almost a decade, the growing Denver-based faculty were considered part of a s in g l e University of Colorado SOE faculty. Graduate programsboth master's and doctoral-we r e integrated within the university's three campuses. Differe n tiation of programs developed at the undergrad uate level initial certification program, with the Denver campus offering a unique urban oriented reacher education program by the mid-1970s. Faculty offices originally were located in t h e Tower Building, which once housed the offices of Denver's tramway system (hence, the nick name " Tramway Tech," now the HorelTeatro). In 1975 the faculty voted to separate from the UCDHSC CataLog 2005-06

112 / School of Educat ion Boulder campus and become the Grad u ate School of Educational Studies, although undergraduate courses continued. Within a few years, the initial certification program was moved to the graduate level, and SOE began conferring MA d egrees in elementary and secondary education. Other master ' s degrees were offered in counseling and guidance, educational psychology , and foundations of education. In the late 1970s faculty offices were moved to St. Cajetan's rectory and then back to the second floor of the Tower Bui lding. In the early 1980s SOE moved to the second floor of the CU-Denver building. In January 1988 , when the North Classroom building was compl eted , the facu l ty moved once again to our present l ocation o n the fourth and fifth floors ofNorth Classroom. Up until1985 the faculty was composed of about 10 professors w h o prepar ed teachers, special ed u cators, s chool psychologists , reading teachers , and bilingual teachers. In the latter ' 80s, the faculty do u b l ed in size through aggressive expansion, hiring a total of 10 facu l ty in the spa n of two years. The principal preparation program and a doctoral program in educational leadership were moved to Denver from Boulder in 198 7. That same year the school esta blished an instructional technology program . In the ensuing years , the School of Education has grown to 55 full tim e faculty, a student body of2,500, and a curriculum of 11 degre e and 14 licensure programs, including two Educational Specialist degrees and a PhD program . The School of Education ' s award-winning faculty l eads the field in initial and continuing teacher education with specialt ies in langu age, lit e racy , and culture; early childhood special ed u cation researc h ; technical assistance to urban schools; leadership for paraeducator e d uca tion; and the preparation of reachers and principals as well as marriage and family counselors. The School of Edu cation is now the largest education program i n the CU system and has more graduate students than any other school of education in the s tate. Our remarkable growth parallels the rapid growth of the city of Denver as it be co me s a majority mino rity city serving a n urban Latino/ a, Mrican American, Asian, and Caucasian populati on, drawing from the Pacific Rim and the East Coast as well as Lat in Ameri ca. With a s trong commitment to urban de v elopment and growth, the School of Education's innov ative graduate and under gradu a te programs provide opportunities to work side by sid e with researchers and pra c titioners on authentic problems of pra ctice and action-oriented research.

114 / School of Education The Initial Professional Teacher Education (!PTE) program at the U n iversity of Col orado at Denver and Health Sciences Center is d esigned for indiv i duals with a minimum of a bachelor's degree who seek a Master's Degree along with an Initial Colorado Provisional Teacher's License in the following areas: • Elementary Educati o n (K-6) (40 semester hours) • S econdary Edu cation (7-12) (37 semester hours) • English • Mathematics • Science (General Science, Biology , Earth Science, Physics, Chemistry) • Social Studies • Foreign Language (Spanish, French) • S pecial Edu cati o n Gen eralist (K12) (57 semester hours ) DUAL GENERAL EDUCATION/SPECIAL EDUCATION !PTE reacher candidates may earn an initial license in elementary or secondary education with an additional endorsement in special education, or an iniriallicense in special education with an additional endorsement in elementary or secondary education. I PTE Program Distinctions The !PTE Licensure programs require students ro complete a series of performance-based assessments in; Content Knowledge, Literacy, Mathematics, Differentiated Instruction , Democratic Schooling, Classroom Management , Instruction and Assessment, and Technology . While in the licensure portion of the program , reacher candidates work in a partner school2-4 days per week, depending on the internship. University courses are closely interrelated with the four internship expe riences in which teacher candidates gradually assume responsibility for reaching . Elementary reacher candidates generally spend an entire academic year in a single partner elementary school, whereas secondary reacher candi d ates spend their four internships in one of the partner m iddle schoo l s and one of the partner high schools. The partner schoo l s are located in six Denver metropolitan districts with most serving large populations oflow-income and/or minority students, as well as a s izeabl e number of st u dents for whom English is a second language and students with special needs. Each partner school is supported by a sire professor from the university one day per week and by a master teacher , called a site coordinator . The !PTE program design supports the concept of reacher education as an ongoing developmental process linking pre-service, induction, and ongoing professional growth experiences. Passing the PlACE or PRAXIS II Content examination is also req u ired before a candidate is eligible for a provisional teaching license in Colorado . Courses in the program are restricted to students accepted to the p rogram. St ud e nts who reg i ster for !PTE courses will be administratively dropped &om classes if they have not been admined to the !PTE Program. For additional information, please call the SOE Student Services Center office at 303-556-2717. The !PTE program admits reacher candidates in two cohort groups, one in the summer/fall and one in the spring. The Initial Professional Teacher Education program includes a 12 or 18 month licensure plan . St u dents will be taking coursework at the u niversity and field-based work in one ofUCDHSC's partner schools . By enrolling in several courses together, elementary and secondary reacher candidates consider how students develop as learners over the entire K-12 school span. This collaborative approach applies to students in the general and special education program as well. This ensures that all elementary and secondary classroom reachers are well-prepared to work with students with special needs and that all special educators have a solid foundat ion in general ed u cation in curriculum and instruction. Students in the !PTE program may choose dual licen sure as both general and special education reachers. Many of the courses serve as UCDHSC Catalog 2005-06 requirement s for both fields. Upon co mpletion of the licensure portion of the program , beginning reachers continue working toward their master's degree (an additional 15-3 1 semester hours ) in rhe areas of Special Education, Educational Psychology, or Curriculum and Instruction during their first or second year of teaching. This ensures that UCDHSC's new teachers are provided with continuing support from the university while in their first few years of teaching. Requirements for Admission Admi ssions deadlines for the !PTE program are September 15 for spring semester and March 1 for summer and fall semesters.

All special education programs foster critically reflective inquiry about r ea ching and learning and the development of the content skills necessary to work effectively in the elementary and seco ndary classroorr The program strives to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse popula rion of students, and to productively participate in and lead school renewal by applying democratic prin ci ple s in educational settings. The amount of time you'll need to complete our special education program varies based on yo ur individual needs. During the academic yea1 co urses are sc heduled for the late afternoons, evenings and weekends so the y do not conflict with most r eaching responsibilities. A teacher candidate in the special education endorsement program will be licens ed to teach K-12. Given the significant overlap in general and special education coursework, you will also have the option to pursue a dual license in general education and special education generalist. Those who already hold a general education license and wish to build on that expertise can pursue an added endorsement option. All teacher candidates will develop a portfolio that document s their achievements in acquiring and refining the program ' s performan ce-base< assessments (PBAs), teaching roles , and "essential questions," as well as deline ates progress in meeting state standards . This portfolio provides a fram ework for you to demonstrate your knowledge, understanding , experiences and pro cesses for learnin g about teaching. It will be formal! reviewed at the time of granting lic ens ure .

Shanklin, Sheila Shannon, S h eryl Taylor Senior Instruct ors: Srevi Quare, Maria Thomas-Ruzic The Program Area Language , Literacy, and Culture offers master of arts degrees in Curriculum and Instruction with emphases in four areas: Bilingual/English as a Second Language, English Education , Literacy for Linguistically Diverse Populations , and Reading and Writing. The program area is divided into four networks: Bilinguai-ESL Network, ESL for Adult and Secondary Learners Network, Early Literacy Network, and the Secondary Literacy Network. The faculty of the Language, Literacy , and Culture Program Area believe thar effective teaching requires an awareness of and the ability to respond ro individual differences . LLC faculty also emph asize the importance of teachers as scholars and reflective practitioners. In particular, teachers must understand how lingu istic and cultural diversity affect their reaching. Two themes run throughout all program offerings. The first concerns the importance of recognizing a variety of lireracies-"home" lireracies , school literacy, "mai nstream " literacy , first and second language lireracies-and to develop reaching practices which utilize an understanding of the complexity oflireracy development across language contexts. The second theme involves the me aningful use oflanguage and literacy to improve the quality of one's life. As an approach to teaching, this theme emphasizes the creation of diverse , rich environments in which l earners experience oral and written language as part of authentic tasks, and where concern for the cultural and linguistic heritage of the students i s evident . The Bilinguai/ESL program offers a program leading to th e following : • A Master of Arts in Curriculum and In struction • The Colorado Endor sement for Teacher of the Linguistically Diverse • The Colorado Endorsement for the Bilingual Specialist • A TESOL Certificate for individuals interested in teaching English abroad UCDHSC Catalog 2005-06

122 / SchoolofEducation The MA program is a field-based professional developmem program involving university faculty and practicing bilingual/ESL instructors in public school and intensive English settings. Courses, labs and practica emphasize scholarly approaches ro complex problems of practice and feature imeractive , co llaborative and practical approaches to working with English language learners. We emphasize a socio-cultural approach ro issues oflanguage and learning, acknowledging the legitimacy oflinguistic and cultural differ ences, and recognizing t h at academic setti ngs represent important socializi n g forces in stude nts' lives . Because of this , we emphasize the " whole learner " in our teaching and in teacher education, understanding that in d ividuals do not merely add a language to their repertoire of communication but make fundamental identity adjustmems as they progress in their studies. For this reason, all of our course work, labs , and practica experiences are field-based, p u tting teac h er candidates i n contact with veteran teachers and English language learners . W e draw heavily on recent scholarship in collaborative approaches to school u n iversity partnerships (Goodlad, 1994) and systemic school change (Senge, 2000) in developing classroom methods and materials, curricula, and teacher development experiences. The program is inten d ed for: • Novice teachers who have completed their Colorado teaching credentials in the Initial Professional Teach er Education program an d are enrolled in the MAin Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Bilingual/ESL • Veteran elementary and secondary teac h ers who are returning ro gra d uate studies for the Masters degree • Veteran elementary and secondary teacher s who are returning ro graduate studies to acquire Colorado endorsement credentials • Individ uals inrereste d in t eachi ng Eng l ish abroad The MA program provides a foundation in teaching English in a variety of contexts in the United States and abroad . Course work includes language teaching metho d ology , language acquisition , applied linguistics , Course MA cross-cultural education , curriculum de velopment, literacy , and other areas. This program has been developed as an advanced course of study for practicing teachers or individuals with some teaching experience. Teachers who work in bilingual education programs or in other content areas (such as art, language arts, math, music , science, social studies, techno l ogy) , but who wish ro integrate ESL principles and strategies in their in structio n for their ESL learners will also find the MA program relevant to their interests and goals . Applicants who are new ro teaching, and who wish ro teach in U.S. K-1 public school settings sho uld inquire about the Initial Teacher Licenses Applicants who are new ro teaching , but who do not need a teaching license (certification) for teaching in U.S . public schools may consider th TESOL Certificate ro gain initial teaching experiences before applying for the MA. Each student comp l etes an ap proved program , in consulta tion with an advisor, co nsisting of 36 hours of coursework. This in dud a field experience, a seminar and practicum , and a Program Portfolio.

R eading is a credentialed program meeting the Colorado Department ofEducation requirements for Reading Teacher Endorsement. Therefore, students who obtain a master's degree in reading educatio n from UCDHSC are certified to hold positions in public and private schools as special developmental and remedial reading teachers in K-6, 7-12, or for elementary and secondary teachers who wish to enhance reading and writ i ng instruction in their classrooms. By placing emphasis o n t h e reading, wr i ting, and oral language development of diverse student populations, the master's program i s at the forefront of the field. Reading, writing, and oral language are approached from a soc io-psychol inguistic persp ective that emphasizes learner's consuucrion of meaning rather than the learning of isolated skills. Importance is placed on using theory, inquiry, and personal reflection to inform classroom practice. The program prepares teachers to become decision maker s capa ble of developing learner-centered curriculums where each student's reading and writing abilities are assessed in order to address developmental or special needs.

The UCCS Department of Mathematics also is a department of the College of Engineering and offers the BS and MS degrees in applied mathematics. REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION The student must generally meet the admission requirements des cribe d in the Undergraduate Admissions and Graduate School sections of this catalog and of the College of Engineering in which the degree program selected by the student is offered. Beginning students in engineering should be prepared to start analytic geometry-calculus. No credit toward any degree in engineering will be g i ven for algebra, trigonometry , or pre-calculus mathematics (MAT H 1110, 1120, and 1130). (These courses are offered to allow a student to make up deficiencies. ) Students who question the adequacy of their pre-co llege background in mathematics s hould contact the Dep a rtment .t.f'.

Placement tests covering pre-calculus mathematics are required of new freshmen to select 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 oflinear 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 app l ications, and the standard theorems of geometry, including some solid geometry. It usually takes eight semesters to cover this material adequately in high school. Refer to the Minimum Academic Preparation Standards (MAPS) and Admission Requirements for Freshman sections u n der Undergradua t e Admissions in this catalog for a list of high school subjects required for admission to the College of Engineering . Former Students Former students must meet the readmission requirements outlined in the Undergraduate Admissions and Graduate School sections of this catalog. Students who interrupt their degree program for an extended period will be required to follow the degree program in effect at the time of their re-admission to the college. Repetition of coursework may be necessary because of the interruption ; re-admitted applicants will be evaluated on an individual basis. Repeated courses must be taken for no credit ( NC). See the Repetition of Courses policy under Academic Policies in this section of the catalog. Int e rcampus Transfe r Transfers between campuses of the University of Colorado should be carefully planned to avoid loss of academic credit. Courses and credits required for engineering degrees vary from campus to campus ; therefore , students should plan as far ahead as possible. The campus advisor can help choose the right courses. Such planning should also include contacting the engineering department to which the student plans to transfer at l east one semester before the transfer is p l anned. The transfer student must have at least a 2.0 GPA for 30 hours of credit toward an engineering degree to be eligible to transfer. A higher GPA may be required to transfer directly into the College of Engineering . In general, calculus, physics , and chemistry courses will transfer for full credit. In addition, 12 hours of humanities and social sciences electives will usually transfer for full credit. Fundamental computing courses may be unique by campus and should be checked with the campus to which the student is transferring. Any Minimum Academic Preparation Standards (MAPS) deficiencies should be eliminated before transferring . Transfer Agreements The College of Engineering has formal transfer agreements with the following Denver metro-area community colleges: Arapahoe Community College (Littleton)303-794-15 50 Community College of Aurora-303-360-4790 Community College ofDenver-303-556-2600 Front Range Community College {Westminster)-303-466-8811 Red Rocks Community College (Lakewood)303-988-6160 These transfer agreements provide an opportunity for potential engineering students to complete courses applicab l e to an engineering program offered at UCDHSC. Students interested in a transfer should contact the Engineering Dean's Office at 303-556-2870 and the respective community college counseling office at the phone number indicated above. UCDHSC Catalog 2005-06 Transfer S tudent s Students applying for transfer from other accredited collegiate in s tirution s will be considered for admission on an individual basis, if they meet the requirements outlined in the General Informacion section of this catalog and have successfully completed a year each of calculus and physics (calculus-based). Applications to transfer from another college on the Downtown Denver Campus to the College of Engineering and Applied Science will be considered on an individual basis by the Office of the Dean, if both of the following conditions are fulfilled: 1. Enrollment limitations have not been exceeded. 2. The student's prior academic record includes successful completion of a year eac h of calculus and physics (calculus-based). Transfer C redit Refer to the Undergraduate Admissions and Graduate School sections of this catalog for descriptions of university-wide policies on transfer credit. After a prospective transfer student has made application and submitted official transcripts to the University of Colorado Office of Admissions Processing, that office issues an Applicant Transfer Credit Evaluation listing those courses that are acceptable by university standards for transfer. A copy of this evaluation is sent to the srudent and to the Office of the Dean by the Office of Admissions Processing and is made a part of the permanent record. An engineering faculty departmental transfer advisor will use this form to indicate which courses and credit hours listed are acceptable toward the graduation requirements for the srudent ' s degree program. The decisions will be recorded on both the Applicant Transfer Credit Evaluation form and the department's Study Program for BS form , and signed and dat ed. Both forms are reviewed by the Office of the Dean, and signed and dated. Any modification to the initial evaluation must be by petition , have the recommendation of the transfer advisor and department chair, and have approval of the Office of the Dean. All documents will become a part of the student's master file in the Office of the Dean. All transfer credit must be validated b y satisfactory achievement in subsequent courses. Note: All requests for consideration of transfer credit and its application toward a degree in engineering and applied science must be submitted prior to the srudent's l ast two semesters at the Downtown Denve r Campus ofUCDHSC. Nontransferable C redi t s Courses on basic subjects such as mathematics , physics, literature , or history may be acceptable for direct transfer of credit if t h ey were taught as part of an accredited program for all students and were not spec i fically designated for engineering technology srudents. Engineering technology courses (courses with technology designations) will not be considered for transfer into an engineering degree program. Students may seek credit for coursework by examination (see Credit by Examination in the General Information section of this catalog). UNDERGRADUATE CORE CURRICULUM IN ENGINEERING The faculty of the College of Arts & Media , the Business School , the College of Engineering and Applied Science, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences have established a core curriculum for undergraduate students . See the General Information section of this catalog for an overview of the common core concept. Students graduating from the College of Engineering are required to satisfy the humanities and social sciences (H&SS) and communications (writing/speech) portions of their engineering program by raking course

PAGE 139

from the UCDHSC common core listed in the Undergraduate Core Curriculum in Engineering tabl e (on the previous page). The intent of the humanities and social sciences (H&SS) component of an engineering program is to provide the student with a coherent and well-str u ctured exploration of a s ub stan tive issue or theme appropriate to the engineering profession and/or of interest to the student. The requir ed humanities and social sciences electives must include both breadth and depth, must include advanced-level coursewo rk , and should be planned in consultation with the advisor. A random selection oflower division courses will not satisfY the humanities and social sciences elective requirement. Courses s uch as accounting , contracts, management, elementary foreign languages, public speaking, and technical writing are not acceptable as humanities and social sciences electives.

136/ College of Engineering and Applied Science concerned. All advanced placement and transfer credit must be validated by satisfactory achievement in subseq uent courses, in accordance wi th standard tra n sfer policies of the college . College-Level Examination (CLEP) Credit Prospective students may earn college-level credit through the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) subject examinations, provided that th ey score at the 50th percentile or a b ove. The department' s transfer a d visor will advise st ud ents of the c r e dits accepte d for such courses toward a degree program. A list of subjects in which CLEP examination credit will be accepted may be obtained from the College of Engineering and Applied Science office. CLEP general examinat i ons are not acceptable. (See also College-Level Examination Program in the Undergraduate Admissions section of this catalog.) Attendance Regulations Successful work in the College of Engineering and Applied Science is dependent u pon regular attendance in all classes. Students who are absent should make arrangements with instructors to make up the work missed. Stu d ents who, for i llness or other good reason, miss a final examination must notify th e instructor or the Office of th e Dean no later than the end of the day on whic h the examination is given. Failur e to do so will result in an Fin the course. Changing Departments Students w h o wish to cha nge to another department within the College of Engineering and A pplied Science must a ppl y for transfer by submitting a Change of Major for Undergraduate Degree Students form , which must have the approval of the new department . (See also discussion of interdepartmental transfer requirements under Transfer Students in this section of the catalog . ) Counseling Freshman students are counseled by the Office of the Dean and by representat ives from each academic deparrment. These representatives are readily available to assist students with academic, vocational, or personal concerns . Students a r e assigned specific deparr m ental adv i sors for academ i c planning , and should contact the deparrmental office for advising appointments . Course Load Policy Full-time Students. Undergraduate students emp l oyed less than 10 hours per week should register for the regular work as outlined in the departmental curricula. Additional courses may be allowed when th ere is satisfactory evid ence that the srudent has the capability to handle the a dded load. Permission to take more than 2 1 hours may b e granted only afte r wrirten petition and approval of the departmental chairperson and the dean. Emplayed Students. Suggested maximum course l oads for undergrad u ate students employed 10 or more hours per week are as follows: Employe d 40 o r more h o urs per week-rwo courses (maximum of9 semester hours) Employed 30 hours per week-three courses (maximum of 12 semes t er hours) Employed 20 hours per week-four courses (maximum of 15 semester hours) Empl oye d 10 hours per week-five courses (max imum of 18 semester hours) UCDHSC Catalog 2005-06 Freshman Year Fundamentals t a u ght in th e freshman year are of cr itical imp ortance in the more advanced classes. Special artention should be given to taking courses in the proper sequence. (Course requirements for freshmen are detailed within the rypical curric ulum given under each d e partm ent.) All freshmen are urged to consult their in str u ctors w henever they need help. Repetition of Courses Students may not register for credit in a course i n wh i c h th ey already have received a grade of C-or higher. Students must repeat a course in which a grade of D+ or lower was earne d, if that course is a prerequisite to another require d course. An F grade in a required cours e ne cessitates a s ub seq uent satisfactory compl etio n of the co urse. If st udents do not successfully comp l ete (C-or higher) an e ngin eering class on th e secon d attempt , they must obtain wrirren approval from their major department to enroll for the course for the third rime. When a course is r e tak en because of aD or F grade on the first attempt, both grades will appear in the transcript and both will be averaged into the GPA. No Credit An engineering student must p et i rio n for approval befor e enrolling no credit (NC) for any course. Required courses may not be taken for no credit. Once a course has been taken NC, the course cannot be repeated for credit. Work Experience T h e College of E n gineering and Applie d Science does not award academic credit for work experience. College Policy on Academic Progress All undergraduate stude nts must declare a major by the tim e they have acc u mulated 60 cred it hours. An enginee rin g student must maint ain a cumulative grade point average of2. 0 or better in all hours attempted at the University of Colorado, in those co urses applied toward graduarion requirements, and in all courses taken from the srudent ' s major d epartment in o rd er to remain in good standing in th e College of E ngin eer in g and App l ied Science . Grades earned at another institution are not u sed in calculating the gra d e point average at the University of Col orado. H owever , grades earned in another schoo l or college of the University of Colorado will be used in determining the student ' s scholastic standing and progress or lack of progress toward the Bachelor of Sc i ence degree in the College of Engi n eering and Applie d Science. Students whose cumulative CU average falls below 2.0 will be placed on probation for th e n ext semester in which th ey are e nrolled in the college, and will be so n otified. If, after th e probationary semester, th e student' s cumulative average is stil l below 2.0, the student will be suspended from the college. The following conditions apply: 1. During a probation semester, the student must com plet e a normal load, i.e., 12 hours or more (see empl oyed student s u ggested course l oad) of courses counti ng toward graduatio n requi rements. Physical ed uc atio n courses do not count; if the st udent has previously completed 6 hours of ROTC courses, ROTC courses do not count; if the required hours of humanities and social science s u bjects have been completed, suc h s ub jects do not count. 2. Students are suspended indefinitely an d may not e nroll at any University of Colorado camp u s during any regular academic year, September throu gh May, but may enroll in sum m e r sessions and/or may take correspondmce courses for credit throu g h the Division of Continuing Education in Boulder.

3. Student s who have been s u spende d m ay a ppl y for readmission if they bring their University of Colorado c umul ative average up to a 2.0 through s ummer session and/or co rr espon d ence work app l ying to engineering degree requirements. 4. Upon satisfactori l y completing a minimum of I2 semester h ours of acceptable work appropriate to an engineering cu rriculum at another college or uni vers ity, subsequent to suspens i on, stud ents may appl y for readmissi o n as a transfer st udent during th e second semester following th eir s uspen sion. 5 . Applicants f or readmission to the University of Color a d o cannot be assured readmission . 6. Srudenrs who hav e been o n probation or s usp e nsi on at any rim e in the past will auromatically b e s usp e nded again if their cumulative average falls below a 2.0. (No addit ional probationary semester is permitted. ) Details of the probati o n ary and s u spe n s ion status and of th e co nditi ons for return t o good aca d e mic s t a nding will be s tipul ated in the lett ers of pro b ation and suspens ion. Inform atio n r egarding these matters may be obtai n ed in the Office of the Dean , NC 3024 . In addition to co llege policies, departments within the college may set standards of progress within th eir dep ar tm ent, and st udent s s h ou ld make a point of knowing th em . Academic Ethics (Dishonesty, Cheating) Students are expected to conduct themselves in accorda nce w i th the highest standards of h o n esty and integrity. Cheating , plagiarism, illegiti mate possession and dispositi o n of exam inations , alteration , forgery, or falsification of official records , and similar acts or att empts to e ng age i n such acts are grounds for s u spension or expul s ion from the uni versity. In particul a r , students are advised that pla g i arism consis t s of any ac t invo l ving the offering of the wo rk of someo n e else as the stud ent's ow n . At the Downto wn Denver Campu s ofUCDHSC, there i s a Student Academic Honor Code. The code is published in a brochure available from the Offic e of Student Life. Inform at ion regarding all student grievance procedures may b e obtained in that office . In a d ditio n , th e co llege has a committee on di scipli n e th a t h ears cases of all eged violations of academic e thics an d recommends disci plinary action. In a case of proven aca d e mic di shonesty/m isconduct , the committe e m ay invoke p enalties that ma y include probation, suspension or expulsion. In a case of sus pen s i o n or expuls i on, a distinction ma y be place d on a student's aca d emic record indicating the action was due to academic di s h o ne sty/ mi scond uct. Students who s u spect or observe violations of academic ethics should report them to their instructor , th e departm ent chairpe rson , or t h e Office of the Dean . Grading System, lncompletes, Pass/Fail and Drop/Add P rocedures See the General Information section of thi s catalog for th e University of Colorado uniform grading system and for a dditi onal pass/fail information and dro p/add p rocedures. Also see th e current Schedule of Courses. Final grades , as reported b y instructors, are to be conside r e d p ermanent and final. Gra d e ch a nges will b e co nsidered only in cases of do c umented clerical erro r and must be approved by the d ean. IN COMPLETES An Incomplete may be given by the inst ru ctor for circumsta nces beyond the student's control, s u c h as a documented medical or per sonal emergency . When it is given, the student, th e Office of the D ean, an d the departmental office are in for m e d in writing b y th e instructor , who states what th e student i s to do in order to remove the Incomplete an d the date the tasks are to be completed.

The student is expected to complete the course requirements e . g . , the final exam ination or term paper), within the establis h e d Academic Policies/ 137 d ea dline, and not to retake the entire course . T he grade will be converted automat i cally to a g r a d e ofF after one year if the specified work is not comp l ete d. PASS/FA I L The primary purp ose for offe rin g courses on a pass/fail grade basis i s to encourage s tudents, especially juniors and senio rs, to broaden the ir educational experience by electing c hall e n ging upp erdivision humanities and social scie nces elective courses without serio u s r i sk to their academic records . In general , pass/fail s hould b e limit ed to 3000or 4000-level humanities an d social sciences courses. Students mus t p rocess the pass/fail for m durin g the first two weeks of the sem ester. Engineering students canno t rak e required courses p ass/fail. Below are specific pass/fail regu l at ion s for the College of Engi n eeri n g and Applied Scie nce: 1. A maxim u m of I 6 pass/fail h o ur s may be i nclud ed in a student' s total program . A maximum of 6 hours may b e taken in one semes t er, but it is r ecommende d that not more than one co urse at a rime be t ake n pass/ fail. 2. Courses that a student may elect to take pass/fail shall be designated and approved in advance b y the student's major dep artment. If courses not so designated are taken, the ear n e d grade wil l be recorded in pl ace of the P . An e ngine er in g student w h o has n or designated a major field will not be allowed the pass/fail option without a pproval through th e Office of the D ean. 3. A transfer student may count toward g r ad uation I c r edit hour of pass/fail for each 9 cre dit h o ur s complete d in the college; h owever, th e m aximum number of pass/fail hours counting toward g radu ation shall not exceed I 6, includ i ng courses taken in the honors pro gram under th a t p rogram's pass/fail g r ading syste m. DROPPING After the I Oth week of the semester, dropping a course requires a petition signed b y th e department cha ir and the dean . Only under ver y extenuating ci r cums t ances, such as a d ocumente d m edical or perso nal emergency, will petiti ons for dropping courses be approved after the tenth week of the semester. Sequence of Courses Full-rime students must generally compl ete th e co urses in the depart ment in whic h th ey are registere d according to the typical curriculum shown under th e ir major d epartment in this catalog. Parr rim e students may modifY th e or d er of courses with advisor approval. Graduation with Honor s In recognition of high scholars hip a nd professional attainments, . Honors, Special Honors, o r With Distinction may be awar d ed at grad u atio n at the discretion of th e student's m ajor department . Thes e h onors are recorded on th e dipl oma of the graduate an d indicated in the commence ment program. Grades earned during the semester of graduation will no t be consi d e r e d . For Special Honors, a student must have a c umul a tive g r a d e p oint average of at l east 3.80 and for Honors, an average b etween 3.60 an d 3.79 . With Distinction is awar d e d at the discr etio n of th e College Execurive Council .

Students s hould check with their department for details. Faculty Recommendation -The r ecomme ndation of the fac ulty of the department offering the degree and the approval of th e faculty of the College of Engineering and Applied Science is required. lncompletes and Correspondence Courses -It is th e st ud ent' s r esponsi bility to ensure that all In co mpl e tes and correspondence courses are officially complete d before the tenth wee k of the student's final semes ter in school. Simultaneous Conferring of Degrees -For any double degree p rogram, both bachelor's degree s mus t be conferred at the same commencement. Commencement Exercises-Commencement exercises are held in December and May . A student finishing in Aug u st is encourage d to attend commencement the following Dec ember, but may reques t the diploma be mailed. UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES In additio n to the standar d four-year d egree program s previous l y liste d , the college is i n vo lved in double degree programs. Business and Engineering Undergradua tes in th e College of Engineering and Applied Sc i ence with caree r in terests in management ma y complete all of the requirements for both a BS degre e in engi n eering and a BS degree in business admin i strat ion by exte nding their s tud y programs to five years, including one or two summer terms. The business co urses req uir ed b y the Business School may be started in th e second, third , or fourth year , depending upon the c urr iculum plan for the particular field of engineering in which the student is enrolle d. UCDHSC Catalog 2005-06 St ud ents i nterested in this undergraduate program are required to submit an application to the Business School. Students should contact a business adviso r to obtain the application form and determine an acce ptable d eg ree program. Requir ements for the undergraduate business degree and engineering degree must be com pl eted concur rentl y . At least a 2.0 grade point average must b e earned in all business courses undertaken in the Bu siness School. No fewer than 30 semester c r e dits in business courses from UCDHSC must b e earned after admission to bus iness to establish residency credit. Courses offere d or required by the Business School may be used in lieu of elect ives required for undergraduate engineering degrees, s ub ject to the approval of the indi vi dual department. Joint Engineering Degrees A student may obtain two engineering degrees by meeting the requirem ents of both programs ; however , the approval of both depart ments and the dean is required. Thirty hours of elective or requi red s ubjects must be co mpl e ted , in addition to the largest minimum number r e quir e d b y e ither of the two departments . A course take n for one master's degree may not b e counted toward a second master's degree. Premedicine Option A profes s ional school in a field s uch as medi c ine requires a student to have a college educ ation prior to pursuing it s professional courses . In practicall y all cases, medical s tudents are univer sity graduates, although occas i onally a student may enter medical school after three years of univer s ity training. The desirability of obtai nin g an engineer ing educatio n prior to undertakin g a study of medicine is inc reasing continually, as medicine itself i s evo lving . A great deal of n ew equipment, most of it electronic , is bein g d evelo ped to assist the medical practitioner in treatment of patients. Bio -engi neering , engineering systems analysis, probab ility, and communicatio n theory are highly a pplicable to medical problems . Improved communication techniques also are allowing the storage and retrieval of information not prev i ously available to the medical do ctor. An advanced knowledge of basic mathematics and computing tech niques, along with increased under standing of physical chemistry , improves the scientific base upon which medi cal knowledge rests. It is therefor e desirabl e that the future medical practitioner and resear c her be well equippe d with the tool s engineering can offer . To provide a minimum of the nec essary knowledge , the additional courses listed below must b e completed with superior grades. Students can m eet these requirements by careful substitution of electives in the e ngin eering c urr iculum. In so me cases w h ere additional hours may be required, interested s tudents should consult with the e ngin eering d epartment chairperson.

For information regarding courses and requirements leading m the Master of Science, Master of Engineering, or the PhD degree , see the appropriate discipline h eading in this section. For graduate admission information and policies, see the Graduate School section of this catalog. 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 evening and televised courses. The Master of Enginee rin g degree permits graduate students more flexibiliry in defining specialized interdisciplinary fields that meet their professional needs. This degree has standards equivalent to those of the Master of Science degree. In addition ro credit coursework , the college also offers courses of interest m practicing engineers through its Continuing Engineering Education Program, 303-556-490 7 . (See also information under Continu ing Engineering Education Program in this section.) Concurrent BS and MS Degree Program in Engineering A student who plans to continue on to graduate stud y after completing the requirements for the BS degree may be admitted to a graduate program through his/her major department in the senior year (after compl etion of at least 110 semester hours). Requirements are the same as for the rwo degrees taken separately: 128 or 136 credit hours, depending on the major, for the BS degree and 30 credit hours for the MS degree. Humanities and social sciences 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) a nd written recommendations from at least rwo major-field faculry m embers are required. The purpose of the concurrent degree program is to allow students who qualify for graduate study and expect to continue for an advanced degree to plan their 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 ful l er use of courses offered only in alternate years . Students will be assigned faculry advisors m help them develop the program best suited ro 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 substit ution policy will be followed for courses normally required in the last year of the undergraduate curricu lum . The program selecte d must be plann ed so that the srudent may qualify for a BS degree after compl eting 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 BS degree. There will be no credit given toward a graduate degree for courses app lied m the BS degree requirements. Graduate Work in Business Undergraduates in engineering who intend to pursue graduate study in business may complete some of the bus iness 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 graduate fundamentals courses , which are designed m provide qualified students with needed background preparation in business . Students must see an advisor from the Business School for approval . PROGRAMS OF STUDY Courses listed in the following curricula are rypical illustrations. hanges in specific courses may be necessary to accommodate students ' Civil Engineering / 139 needs and/or changes in institution requirements; however, stu d ents should take courses in logical sequence , i.e., complete all freshman courses before taking sophomore courses.

Adequ ate P rogress Toward M S in Computer Science Degree Students are expected co finish the MS degree program within seven years. Candidates for the MS degree may not get credit for a course taken longer than seven years before the date on which the degree is to be granted. A student may petition for an acceptance of a graduate course that was taken seven or more years prior co potential graduation. Students who do not enroll for any coursework relevant co computer science in a given semester (sum m er semesters excluded) must supply the Computer Science and Engineering Department with a written statement describing the reasons for the inactivity . This statement must be received by the department by the e i ghth week of that semester. The department shall regard the failure co supply such a statement as demonstrating a lack of interest in continuing in the program. Students who are inactive for three consecutive semesters (summer semesters excluded) can be removed from the program. Thesis defense is to be co mpleted by the ninth week of the semester of graduation. PhD CSIS Program Program co-directors: Tom Altman (CSE) and Mike Mannino (Business School) The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) and the Business School offer a joint DoctOr of Philosophy degree program in Computer Science and Information Systems (CSIS). The program targe ts stu dents with a masrer's-level education in either computer science or information systems who seek research rraining that combines CS and IS along with strong industry interaction. The joint PhD program pro vides training for academic positions, industrial research positions, and senior consulting positions. The specific goals of the program complement these general goals: • Create a pool of graduates with CSIS research rraining who are qualified for academic and nonacademic careers. • Meet student demand for advanced training in CSIS with accomodations for full-rime and parr-time students. • Promote interdisciplinary research betwe en CSE and the Business School. • Enhance technology transfer between CSIS academic units an d Front Range technology businesses through joint research , student internships, faculty exrernships, and co mmittee participation . ADMIS SION Prospective students apply co either the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) or the Business School. Applicants who pass the initial screeni ng are then reviewed by a joint committee (consisting of the two co-directOrs of the program) for th e final admittance deci sion. Admission criteria include GPA ( undergraduate and graduate), standardized rest scores (GMAT or GRE), letters of recommendation, prior achievements in academia and industry , an application portfo l io essay describing an applicant's motivation , and an initial plan for docroral study. The application portfolio is important co gauge an applicant's motivation for research training. Students without a master's degree in either computer science or information systems will need co rake additional coursework sufficient to complete the requirements of a master's degree in one of the two areas. UCDHSC Catalog 2005-06 PROGRAM ORGANIZATION Supervision o f the PhD P rogram The PhD program is supervised by the two program co -directors. The duties of the co-directOrs include scheduling of doctoral courses, setting program policies subject to approval of business and CSE faculty, working with advisors ensure compliance with the p rogram guidelines, resolving disputes, measuring performance of the program over time, and providing the final decision on admittance of students. Advisor Upon entering the program , each student chooses an advisor to provide mentoring and guidance throughout the program and wor k with the student to prepare a program of srudy. The advisor will also work with the student in the preparation of the first-year and second-year papers. Requests to change advisors must be approved by the program co-directors, and this happens in very rare circumstances. Doctoral CommiHee The advisor and four other members form a doctoral committee. To foster interdiscipli n ary work, stu d ents can have their docto ral research co-supervised by two faculty members from CSE and the Bu siness School. There is at least one faculty member from CSE and at least one from business. One of the committee member s is a representative of industry. At least one faculty committee member is from outside CSE and business. If the student has difficulty finding an industry representative , the advisor and the program co-directOrs help identifY an industry representative . PROGRAM COMPONENTS Plan of Study A list of coursework and other requirements for the degree should be prepared with the advisor and then submitted co the co-d i rectOrs for approval. The successful completion of all work indicated on the plan of study is an important prerequisite for the conferring of the degree . A plan of study should be submitted for approval by the e n d of the first semester of the program . The current plan of srudy should be updated before the beginning of the second year of the program and submitted for re -a pproval by the co-directors. F irst-and SecondYear Papers Students prepare papers during their second and third years. For part-time students, the timing might be longer , in which case a prior approval by the advisor is required. The papers should be of quality co ensure publication in conference proceedings or journals. The advisor serves as a mentor to he l p the student complete these papers , an d each paper is submitted for approval to the advisor. An industry representative may also be used as an evaluatOr. Comprehensive Exam After completing the required coursework, each student will take a writ ten comprehensive exam that requires integration of compu ter science and i nformation systems knowledge. The program co-directOrs will solicit questions from faculty, schedule the examination, and coordinate with faculty co grade the exam. The exam will normally rake place over one day , about 8 hours. Dissertation Proposal As the first phase of the dissertation, each student should p repare a proposal that will be evaluated by the docroral committee. A proposal should be ready for review at least one semester before the expected completion date of the degree. The proposal is submi tted for review

and approval by the doctoral comminee. An o ral presentat i o n of the d i ssertation proposal before the doctoral committee is required for approval. An approved proposal is then sub mined to the co-directors of the program for final approval. University-level Instructional Training During the dissertation stage of the program, each student will be required to work as a teac h ing assistant for at least one semester and reac h a co urse during a second semester. These requirements ensure that each student has an adequate level of instructional training. Students who plan a u niversity career will be encouraged to reach more courses. The student will be compensated for these activities acco r ding ro standard university salaries. Dissertation Completion O n ce the dissertation proposal is approved, each student prepares and submi t s a dissertation. T h e dissertation is defended before the doctoral committee in a public meeting. Final approval for the dissertation is give n by a vote of the dissertation committee after the public defense. Graduation Upo n co m pletion of all degree requirements, including the dissertation defense, the student receives the degree ofDocror ofPhilosophy. Students applying through CSE receive the PhD from the College of Eng i neering and Applied Sciences , while students applying through Information Systems receive the PhD from the Business School.

The thermal science option requires 12 hours of analytical methods , numerical methods, fluid mechanics, and thermodynamics. The student then selects 9 hours of co ur sework in approved electives from a selection of thermal science electives. The mechanics option requires 12 hours of coursework in analytical methods, numerical methods , elasticiry and dynamics. The student then selects 9 hours of coursework in approved electives from a selection of mechanics electives. For students following Plan I , the thermal science and mechanics options both allow the student to pick one approved elective , not necessarily in the chosen specialry. For stud ents following P l an II, the thermal scienc e and mechanics options both allow the student to pick three approved electives, not necessarily in the chosen specialry. The general mechanical engineering option requires the student to take 18 hours of requi r ed courses in analytical methods , numerical methods, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, elasticiry and dynamics . For students following Plan I, the general mechanical engineering option allows the student to pick two approve d electives , while for students following Plan II , the general mechanical engineering option allows the student to pick four approved electives. Master of Engineering Degree The Master of Engineering (MEn g) degree program is an interdisci plinary degree program that allows students to combine advanced engineering coursework with graduate-level non-engineering courses, such as business administration, social sciences, biological sciences or public administration. The requirements for admission are the same as those for the Master of Science degree. A minimum of30 semester hours of academic work are required for the MEng degree. At least 15 of these hours must be at the 5000 level or above in mechanical engineering. A maximum of 15 credit hours may be taken outside of engineering. In addition to coursework, a written report is required in the MEng program . PhD Program The PhD in Mechanical Engineering is available through the ME Department at CO-Boulder. Downtown Denver Campus faculry may serve as research advisors b y individual arrangement . Master of Engineering (MEng) The Master of Engi neerin g degree program is administered through the departments of engineering. The requirements for admission and MasterofEnginuring I 149 for qualiry and quantiry 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 especially intended to meet the needs of those practi c ing e ngineers who wish to follow an integrated, interdisciplinary program of studies in engineering and allied subjects related to the individual student' s professional work . Examples of such interdisciplinary programs include engineering and business adminis t ration, engineering and environme ntal sciences, engineering and social sciences, e ngineering and biological sciences, eng in eering and behavioral sciences, and engineering and public administration. Appropriate non-engineering coursework must be availabl e on the campus where the student attends . The degree is especially valuabl e for engineers in industry. It provides a framework for s uch persons to work toward significant goals fine d to their particular interests. The program can include courses that are made availab l e on videotape or on live television. Prospective students are required ro present a well defined objective in order robe admitted ro the program. In co nsultation with the faculry advisors, an academic program is developed to m eet this objective. An advisory committee will be appointed for all students by their department. The adviso ry committee guides the student is respons ible for approving the individual's degree program and admission to candidacy and approves the student's written report and the a warding of the degree . DEGREE REQUIREMENTS The requirements for the degre e are 30 credit hours, including a written report on a crea tive investigation that may be related ro the student' s professional work . The report will be of the same general qualiry as that required for the Master of Science thesis , and must be defended orally. It may be based upon work done for credit under independent study . At least 15 credit hours must be in engineering at the 5000 level or above. As many as 12 credit hours may b e taken outside of engi ne ering at the 4000 level or higher . Additional inform ation about the degree may be obtained from the College of Engineering and Applied Science and the department offices . UCD HSC Catawg 2005-06

Students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at UCDHSC specialize in a major such as chemistry, English, or psychology while creating a foundation of knowledge through general education requirements. Hav ing a broad background in the arts and sciences prepares you to begin your career or to change careers later, to pursue advanced study i n a discipline, or to study for a professional career such as law or medicine. We believe it also sets the stage for a rewarding and productive life overall. Pursuing a liberal arts curriculum not only increases your knowledge, it enables you to develop such skills as logical argumentation and clear expression, gain insights about relationships in nature and society, develop critical thinking and interpretive ability, solve complex problems rationally, and heighten your aesthetic appreciation. At the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, we coordinate undergraduate programs with our own graduate programs as well as UCDHSC's professional school on the Downtown Denver Campus , through which you can combine technical expertise with the broad critical an d analytical skills essential to complex decision making. While our dedicated faculry have outstanding academic credentials , their greatest strength is their commitment to highly motivated students representing a broad range of age and experience. Their goal is not only to teach , but to instill in our students a lifelong love for learning and respect for free and independent thinking. Our curriculum maintains traditionally high unive r siry academic standards while providing numerous flexible learning opportunities to meet our students ' varied objectives . We offer opport unities to study urb an programs, confront contemporary issues , participate in off-campus internships, and make use of the ciry ' s resources. Advisory committees from the communiry work with each department , allowing cultural , historical , and environmental efforts in Denver to be supported and enhanced by our academic programs. Liberal arrs and science undergraduates receive either a BA orBS degree . Many go on to further srudy in some of the best graduate and p r ofessional schools around the country, while ochers begin their careers in a variery of posirions in industry , commerce , and government. Each area of srudy offers a wide variery of curricula, including tradi tional undergraduate major programs , interdisci plin ary srudies , and pre-professional programs. College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Educational Goals The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences defines liberal educ a tion to include four major components: 1 . central elements of knowledge, includi ng: a. knowledge of the diversiry and significant dimensions of human culture and a specific understanding of American cult ur e, including irs political and ethn i c diversiry b. aesthetic awareness and appreciation of the cultural contributions made to the human exp erience by the social sciences and humanities c. an understanding of the methods of inq u iry and development of theory chat are the bases of knowledge in the natural and physical sciences 2 . essential skills for analysis , writing, comp ut a tion, communi cation , and decision making 3 . the development of a constructive orientatio n toward sociery through the enhancement of the individual ' s capaciry to make informed and responsib l e UCDHSC Catalog 2005-06

COllEGEWIDE INTERDISCIPliNARY PROGRAMS Most of the individual departments represented in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences hav e numerous links with other disciplines ; conseque ntly, many facu l ty members encourage students to rake courses in related discip l ines. Students will often find opportunities to explore relationships among different disciplines while studying within traditional disciplines . The college also has several established interdisciplinary programs leading to full undergraduate degrees, minors , certificates, and graduate degrees. A brief description of each program follows; additional information can be found in their respective listings under the degree program descriptions. Environmental scie nces ( minor, graduate certi ficate , and MS degree) combines environmental courses from the social scie nces , physical scie nces, engineering , humanities, and statistics . UCDHSC Catalog 2005-06 The ethnic studies minor enables students to combi ne diversity courses from ma n y social science and humanities discip lines. T h e individually structured major (ISM) provides libe ral arts students the opportun ity to create their own interdiscip linary major centered around an academic or career theme. Within the ISM , students can also pursue a program in international affairs through the Department of Histo ry . Students interested in combining curric ulum in the arts, communi ca tion , history, literature , philosophy and theatre at the graduate level may be interested in the Master of Humanities (MH) degree. The Master oflntegrared Sciences (MIS) degree enables students to take courses in the sciences, focusing on three options: ap plied science, computer science and mathematics. Students in the Master of Social Science (MSS) program develop t h eir own interdisciplinary course of study in the soc ial sciences (ant h ropology , eco nom ics, geography, history , political scien ce, psyc h ology , and soc iology) , as well as related disciplines (such as English, philosop hy, education, public affairs , and architecture). The minor in religious studies affords students the opportunity to study religious traditions through such interrelated discip lines as anthropology , literature, philosophy, and psychology . Women's studies focuses on gender issues in the humanities, natural scie n ces, and social sci e nces. A minor is availa bl e at the undergrad u a t e level, and a graduate certificate can be earned through the Master of Social Science program. Joint Degree Programs BA/MPA T h e College of Lib eral Arts and Sciences, in coo peration with the Graduate School of Public Affairs, offers students the opportuni ty to complete both a bachelor ' s degree and master ' s degree in five years rather than the usual six years. The program combines undergraduate general education and major studies with a specialized curriculum in public affairs, and strives to develop intellect ual and professional skills i n a coordinated manner. Participating major programs in CLAS include communication, eco n omics, political science and sociology, as well as othe rs. Students in the BA/MPA program must fulfill all of the graduation requir ements for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS); maintain a 3.5 undergraduat e grade point average in CLAS and have completed 75 percent of their undergraduate program to b e eligible for admission ; and enroll formally in the programs through the College A d v i sing Office. Students admitted to the program begi n takin g gradu atel evel courses in public administrat ion during their senior year. These courses will count toward the bachelor's d egree as electives.

Medical Anthropology Medical anthropology i s a subdiscipline of anthropology that include s th e s tud y of all aspects of health , illness, and di sease in human communities and p opulatio ns. It draws o n all of the persp ectives that distingui sh an throp ology as a unique discipline: the analysis of human evolution and a d aptation; c ultu ral development , expressions, and variability ; and hi storical change an d continuity . Medical anthropology takes as its subject a broad range of s p ecific topics , including the study of health care systems, factors that affect the distribution and determinants of disease in popul atio ns, maternal and child health, nutrition and food habits, human d evelopment, political ecology, health policy, an d language and communication in health care contexts. Faculty in the department emp hasize the ap plied dimensions of m edical a nthrop ology, preparing students for careers in publi c health , health care, and health sciences research. Courses in the department are co mpl emente d b y electives in other departments (soc iology , biol ogy, psychol ogy, history, geography) and programs on the Downtown Denver Campus (health a dmini s tration , public affairs, e du cation) and at the Health Sci e nces Center Campus (Schoo l s of Medicine , Pharmacy, and Nursing).

Students wishing to pursue doctoral-level study in medical anthropology may do so by applying to the interdisciplinary PhD in Health and Behavioral Sciences (ww w and choosing the medical anthropo l ogy emphasis. This program provides advanced, research-based training in the application of the social and behavioral sciences to health issues and leads to the doctor of philosophy (PhD) in health and behavioral sciences (HBSC). Students have two avenues to the program , both com petitive: regular admission to the HBSC program following completion of the MAin Anthropology (with an emphasis in medical anthropo l ogy) or admission to the articulated Anthropology/HBSC program . The articulated program permits students to develop master ' s level expertise in anthropo l ogy and medical anthropology and, upon successful completion of the core MA requirements and the department ' s comprehensive examination, to move directly into the HBSC program without going through a separate admissions process. The articulated program is designed for students with exceptional academic backgrounds.

Goals ron e Undergraduate The study of biology introduces students to rhe diversity of life , the c h emical processes and adaptatio n s s h ared b y species, and the interaction of species with their env ironment. By s tudying the differing fields of bio logy, the student begins to apprecia t e the characteristics oflife and the remarkable evo lution a r y history leading to the present forms, and to understand the advances in biological technology that are transforming our society. Knowledge of the interrelationships berween popul ations and their habitats leads to respect, concern, and a sense of responsibility for our environ m ent. The biology curriculum is designed to provid e a firm found ation in the life sciences. As s uch , graduates are well prepare d for gr aduate study in bi ology , profess i onal schools in the health careers, a var i ety of biologi cal l y oriented job s in government and industry, reaching at various educational levels, or, as wi th any liberal arcs ma jor, for life itself Students planning on a teaching career should co n s ult the School of Education for information on reacher licensure. REQUIREMENTS FOR THE MAJOR Biology students must d eclare their m ajor by the time the y have taken 60 semester hours. A minimum of 36 h o urs of biology must b e co mpl eted , of w h ich 15 hours are a t the upper division level and taken in residen ce with Downtown Denver Campus biology faculty.

Anderson , Robert Damrauer , Douglas Dyckes, John A. Lanning Associate Professors: Doris R. Kimbrough, Xiaotai Wang Instructors: Marc Dansky, Susan Scheib l e Undergraduate Why study chemistry? A practical reason is that our highly technical society faces many prob lems that can be solved through an understanding of the science of chemis try and its methods of solving problems. A more intangible reason is that chemistry is central to a variety of other disciplines and that many problems ultim ately will have chemical solutions. Ar the undergr aduate level, students can prepare for (1) careers in chemical and medical laborat ories; (2) careers in nursing , medical techno l ogy , dental hygiene, and other health-oriented fields; (3) post baccalaureate programs in chemistry , biology , biochemistry, medicine, physical therapy, and dentistry . At the graduate level, an MS degree program is offered. Students with MS degrees have job opportunities in research and technical laboratory services. In addition, flexible programs can be designed to com bin e chemical knowledge and skills with other interests of the MS-level st ud ent (e.g., biology or enviro nm ental science). REQUIREMENTS FOR MAJOR Students must declare th eir major by the time they have comp l eted 60 semester hours . The chemistry major requires 45 credit hours in chemistry. Students must take at least 14 upper division chemistry hours, including CHEM 4128,4518, or 4538, in residency at the UCDHSC Catawg 2005-06 Downtown Denver Campus .
