courses offered by the Department of Microbiology and by other departments on campus. In
conjunction with the advisor, the student establishes a four-member faculty advisory committee to
guide the research and academic program. At least two semesters of laboratory instructorship is
required. The fmal examination also includes a seminar presented by the candidate that is open to
the university community.

Student Financial Support: Financial support for study in the department is available in the form
of teaching assistantships, research assistantships and competitive fellowships. All applications to
the department are automatically considered for available assistantships. For highly qualified
students, supplemental fimds are frequently available.

Other Relevant Information: During the first semester, participation in the laboratory rotation
program is required so that students become acquainted with departmental research programs,
faculty and other graduate students. A faculty thesis advisor and laboratory research program are


usually selected by the end of the first semester.

The natural resources program is an interdepartmental program designed to prepare students for
administrative and research positions in both private and public natural resource organizations. A
core curriculum of 16 credit hours provides all NR students with courses in administration,
economics, policy, statistics and current natural resource issues. For the remaining approximately
17 credits, students elect a technical option administered by one of the three participating
departments. Currently approved technical options include: forest economics and management,
forest policy and administration, international resources and spatial information systems in the
Department of Forestry; outdoor recreation management and spatial information systems in the
Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management and soil science in the Department of
Soil Science. With one exception, each option is available as either the M.S. in NR or as the non-
thesis Master of NR. The soil science option is available only as the non-thesis degree.

Admissions Requirements: Students should have an undergraduate degree in natural resources or
a related field. Experience in natural resources management and administration will be considered
in lieu of an appropriate undergraduate degree. Admission is contingent upon acceptance by an

Master's Requirements: The M.S. degree requires a research thesis based on completion of a
research project. The Master of NR degree requires a practical project which develops and

The discipline of nuclear engineering is concerned with the development of nuclear processes for
energy production and with the applications of radiation for the benefit of society. Representative
topics of investigation include analytic, computational and experimental research in the
neutronics, materials, thermal-hydraulics and control aspects of fission reactors; radiation
detection and measurement of basic physics parameters; waste management and radiological
assessment; applications of radioisotopes and radiation in industry, medicine and science; and
plasma, plasma-material surface interactions and design aspects of fiision reactors.


Admission Requirements: Bachelor's degree graduates in any of the fields of engineering or
physical sciences may be qualified for successfiil advanced study in nuclear engineering. Prior
experience or course work in nuclear physics, partial differential equations and basic reactor
analysis is helpful but may be gained during the first semester of graduate study. GRE scores
(general test) are usually needed for financial aid.

Master's Degree Requirements: A project is required for the MNE degree. A minor (nine
semester hours) must be selected for both the M.S. and MNE degrees.

Doctoral Degree Requirements: Students must pass a departmental qualifying exam that covers
basic nuclear engineering material. Students must select a minor (typically 15-18 hours).

Student Financial Support: Teaching assistantships, research assistantships and fellowships are
available for qualified applicants. Opportunities are also available for graduate traineeships with
utility companies, reactor manufacturers and national laboratories providing a valuable
combination of fmancial support and leaming in the classroom, the research laboratory and on the

Other Relevant Information: The department has many excellent facilities including the one-
megawatt PULSTAR fission reactor, the Scaled PWR Facility (SPWRF), neutron activation
analysis laboratory, nuclear materials laboratory, plasma and fusion laboratories, instrumentation
and controls equipment, radiation analyzers and tomography systems, and computers ranging from

from undergraduate majors in mathematical sciences and engineering. Applications for the
doctoral degree program are accepted normally from holders of a master's degree from a
recognized program (preferably an OR program or one of its allied fields) who show promise of
success at the Ph.D. level, as indicated by previous academic performance and independent

A score on the GRE that is less than two years old is required if financial assistance is sought or if
the student is transferring from another doctoral program.

Master's Degree Requirements: The Master of Operations Research degree is a terminal
graduate degree for students who seek careers as OR practitioners in either the private or public
sector. The M.S. degree is designed to prepare students for careers in research and development.

Doctoral Degree Requirements: The Ph.D. degree is intended for students to be research


scientists in industry or teachers and researchers in academia. Please consuh the OR brochure for
more details of degree requirements.

Student Financial Support: Both teaching and research assistantships are available to qualified

The master's degree provides students the opportunity to develop and enhance their critical
understanding of both the conceptual foundations of parks, recreation and tourism management
and the procedures of systematic inquiry and critical problem solving as applied to planning and
management issues. The department offers educational opportunities and resources for the
preparation of professionals concerned with planning, organizing, managing and directing parks,
recreation and tourism programs, areas and facilities. The general emphasis areas at the master's
level include: parks and recreation management, tourism development and management,
geographic information systems, recreational sport management and natural resource recreation

The doctoral students' programs of study are tailored to match their particular experiences and
aspirations, and all doctoral programs will concentrate on one of three areas. All three
concentrations operate within the framework of natural resource management and include park
and recreation management, tourism policy and development, and spatial information systems and

Master's Degree Requirements: The M.S. degree requires 30 credit hours, of which four hours is
master's thesis research. The M.PRT. requires a minimum of 36 hours of course work, of which
two hours is a master's research project. A minor is optional with both degrees. The department
offers a co-major with public administration which includes 41 hours of course work. The M.NR.
degree requires a minimum of 30-33 hours.

Doctoral Degree Requirements: Although each doctoral course of study will be unique to the
individual student, the normal course of study will include a minimum of 54 hours beyond the
master's. These credit hours are distributed among the core courses, statistics and research
methods, the minor, the field of expertise and 1 1 elective hours including the dissertation. Students
will be expected to have completed a master's degree, preferably one with a thesis. Students not
possessing a master's will have to demonstrate their ability to do graduate work prior to admission
into the Ph.D. program as will those without research experience who will have to demonstrate an
ability to produce scholarly work in PRTM.

Student Financial Support: Graduate assistantships and internships are available to students in
this program on a competitive basis.
