Course offerings and research topics currently include, but are not limited to: immunology,
cardiology, pharmacokinetics, oncology, toxicology, gastroenterology, neurophysiology,
reproductive physiology, biotechnology, microbiology, aquatic/ wildlife biology, biomedical
engineering, endocrinology, molecular biology, pulmonary biology, epidemiology, population
medicine, health systems monitoring, transplantation and radiology.

Admission Requirements: All applications are reviewed by the Graduate Student Admissions
Committee of the College, composed of faculty members representing each area of the graduate
program. Scores from the GRE are required for admission by all applicants. Candidates who do
not have a DVM degree must have a baccalaureate degree or advanced degree from a college or
university recognized as standard by a regional or general accrediting agency. Students with a 3.0
(on a 4.0 scale) undergraduate or DVM curriculum with appropriate course background will be
considered for admission.

Doctoral Degree Requirements: Credit hour requirements for the Ph.D. degree are determined
by the graduate student's committee with approval of the Director of Graduate Programs and the
Graduate School.

Student Financial Support: Research assistantships are awarded to qualified candidates on the
competitive basis by the College. These are for 12-month periods, and stipends are competitive
with those of other programs. These positions are funded by the grants of individual faculty
members and the state appropriations to the College and departments.

Other Relevant Information: The program is organized across traditional departmental lines as
areas of concentration which include: cell biology/morphology, epidemiology/ population
medicine, microbiology, pathology and pharmacology. These provide extensive interdisciplinary
training and maintain a highly effective liaison with graduate programs in other schools of the
university, as well as those of nearby Duke University and the University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill.

The Master of Science in computer networking may be earned through the M.S. with thesis option
or through the non-thesis option. Either option may be used as preparation for further graduate
study or employment in industrial research, development or design environment, although students
planning to continue on for a Ph.D. should discuss the option selected with their advisors.

Admission Requirements: Students may apply for admission through either the Department of
Computer Science or the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and admissions
criteria will adhere to those currently in place for the existing M.S. programs in those departments.

Master's Degree Requirements: Computer networking core courses constitute 9 of the 30
minimum credit hours. Students take 12 additional credit hours of computer networking courses
from one of four currently defined technical concentration areas: network design, network
hardware, network software or distributed computing. The remaining 9 credit hours may be taken
from an approved management concentration sequence, as additional courses in the computer
networking technical concentration or as 6 hours of thesis and 3 credit hours from the list of
approved computer networking courses. At least 6 of the 30 credits must come from the 700 level,
and non-letter graded courses such as individual studies courses may account for a maximum of 3
credit hours.

The Department of Computer Science is changing rapidly to become a leader in the netvvorked
world. Recent developments include adding fourteen tenure-track faculty, six of whom received
NSF CAREER development awards. Total research expenditures have tripled and graduate
enrollments have climbed above 200 students. The faculty has broad-ranging research interests.

Admission Requirements: Successful applicants have an accredited baccalaureate degree with a
B average, including computer science course work at least equivalent to a minor. Applicants must
submit scores for the GRE General Tests and GRE Computer Science Subject Test. [Exception:



99



Applicants for the Master of Computer Science curriculum who do not desire financial aid may
omit the Subject Test.]

Master's Degree Requirements: The M.S. requires two core courses and thesis research
(typically six credits). The advisory committee may waive the thesis requirement for students who
pass the Ph.D. written preliminary examination and complete specified course work in lieu of
research. The Master of Computer Science (M.C.S.) is a terminal professional degree granted
upon successful completion of 30 hours of course work, including three courses from the core list:
CSC 501, CSC 505, CSC 506 and CSC 707.

Doctoral Degree Requirements: Ph.D. students normally complete 72 semester hours of post-
baccalaureate course work. They must also complete core course work in three broad areas
(theoretical foundations, software systems and architecture), individualized in-depth written and
oral preliminary examinations, and a public defense of a dissertation describing substantial
original, independent scholarly work.

Student Financial Support: A unique asset is the department's Industrial Assistantship Program,
under which graduate students perform part-time work at local firms. During 1999-2000
approximately 85 students held traditional teaching and research assistantships. Outstanding
candidates may receive fellowships or be employed at lecturers.

Other Relevant Information: Graduates at all levels are highly respected and well paid locally
and elsewhere. Many M.S. and M.C.S. graduates begin or continue careers performing and
supervising advanced software development in and around the Research Triangle Park. Many
recent Ph.D.s assumed positions of technical leadership in well-known large companies or
assumed tenure-track faculty positions.

The Department of Crop Science offers programs of study leading to the Master of Crop Science
(M.C.S.), Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctorate of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees. The M.S. and
Ph.D. programs are based upon original research while the M.C.S degree is a non-thesis degree
program. Areas of study in the department include plant breeding, genetics and molecular biology;
crop production, management, chemistry and physiology; sustainable agriculture and agro-
ecology; turf grass management and science; integrated pest management, weed science and crop
modeling.

Excellent facilities for graduate education are available, including wet and dry labs for preparation
and analysis of plant and soil samples, cold storage facilities, greenhouses, controlled
environmental chambers, computing facilities and the Southeastern Plant Enviroimient
Laboratories (Phytotron) for highly controlled plant environmental research. Agriculturally, North
Carolina has a wide array of environments and soils for field research. This includes the sandy
coastal plains and black lands of eastern NC, the central Piedmont with its clay soils, and the
mountains of NC with their unique environments and soils. University and State research stations
are located strategically throughout each of these regions and are widely used for field research.

Crop Science programs also benefit from strong cooperative ties with other departments and
institutions. Graduate students in Crop Science work cooperatively with and/or obtain instruction
in the Departments of Animal Science, Biochemistry, Botany, Chemistry, Computer Science,
Entomology, Horticultural Science, Genetics, Mathematics, Microbiology, Plant Pathology, Soil
Science and Statistics. Cooperative efforts link our programs with faculty at a number of land
grant and international universities as well as with leaders in agribusiness and environmental
protection.

Admissions Requirements: Prospective students should be graduates of an accredited university
