state/federal partnership program involving all campuses of the University of North Carolina
system. Sea Grant combines the university's expertise in research, extension and education to
focus on practical solutions to problems in the area of coastal and marine resource use and
conservation. Graduate and undergraduate research opportunities rest with individual project
directors on campus via a special graduate fellowship program administered through the program
office.

SOUTHEASTERN PLANT ENVIRONMENTAL LABORATORIES - PHYTOTRON - The

Southeastern Plant Environment Laboratory, often referred to as the NC State Phytotron, is
especially designed for research dealing with the response of plants and microorganisms to their
environment. A high degree of environmental control makes possible simulation of a wide range
of climates found in tropical, temperate and northern zones.

Research in the Phytotron deals with all phases of plant biology. Although the majority of the
studies are conducted with agricultural and horticultural crop species, the Phytotron can
accommodate ecological investigations, plant biology problems of the space program,
experimental taxonomy and air pollution studies as well as basic physiological, biochemical and
plant molecular biology research. The Phytotron facility is available to the resident research staff,
participants in graduate research programs of NC State and to domestic and foreign visiting
scientists.

TRIANGLE UNIVERSITIES NUCLEAR LABORATORY (TUNL) - TUNL is a laboratory
for structure research. Located on the campus of Duke University in Durham, the laboratory is
staffed by faculty members and graduate students in the Departments of Physics of Duke
University, UNC-Chapel Hill and NC State. There is extensive collaboration with personnel from
the other two participating universities and with the many visiting physicists from the United
States and abroad. Particle accelerators are used to bombard target nuclei with an assortment of
ions of accurately controlled energy spread and spin orientation. The accelerators include a 15-
MeV tandem Van de Graaff accelerator and a 4-MeV Van de Graaff accelerator. Polarized and
pulsed beams are available as well as polarized targets. In addition, monoenergetic gamma ray



61



beams are produced by scattering free electron laser photons from electrons in an electron storage
ring. TUNL physicists also perform experiments at major national and international nuclear
physics facilities.

Special Programs

RESEARCH PROGRAM AT THE OAK RIDGE ASSOCIATED UNIVERSITIES - NC

State has been a sponsoring institution of Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) since 1949
and is one of six core universities along with ORAU and the University of Tennessee - Battelle
Corporation that manage the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. ORAU is a private,
not-for-profit consortium of 95 colleges and universities and a management and operating
contractor for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) with principal offices located in Oak Ridge,
Tennessee. Founded in 1946, ORAU provides and develops capabilities critical to the nation's
technology infrastructure, particularly in energy, education, health, and the environment. ORAU
works with and for its member institutions to help faculty and students gain access to federal
research facilities; to keep members informed about opportunities for fellowship, scholarship and
research appointments; and to organize research alliances among our members in areas where their
collective strengths can be focused on issues of national importance.

ORAU manages the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) for DOE. ORISE is
responsible for national and international programs in science and engineering education, training
and management systems, energy and environment systems, and medical sciences. ORISE's
competitive programs bring students at all levels, K-12 through postgraduate, and university
faculty members into federal and private laboratories.

ORAU's Partaership Office seeks out opportunities for collaborative alliances among its member
universities, private industry, and federal laboratories. Current alliances include the Southern
Association for High Energy Physics (SAHEP) and the Center for Bio-Electromagnetic Interaction
Research (CBEIR). Other UIGA activities include the sponsorship of conferences and workshops,
the Visiting Scholars program and the Junior Faculty Enhancement Awards.

FIELDS OF INSTRUCTION

This section identifies and gives pertinent information about all the fields of study that participate
in graduate education at NC State. There are a total of 98 different fields offering graduate
degrees. In addition, there are eleven fields that offer minors at the graduate level and seven areas
that support graduate education through offering graduate level courses or in some other capacity.
Fields of instruction that offer graduate degrees are listed first. Information given for each field
include the faculty, requirements for admission to and completion of the degree program(s),
student financial support, courses offered and other relevant infonration. Following the degree
offering fields is a listing other fields of instruction which offer graduate minors, graduate courses
or support graduate education in some other way. To avoid duplication, basic Graduate School
requirements for admission and completion of graduate degree programs are not repeated for each
field of instruction. Only those requirements that are unique to the field are given in the sections
on the individual fields. Graduate School requirements are summarized below.

BASIC GRADUATE SCHOOL REQUIREMENTS

Basic Requirements for Admission

Basic requirements for admission to the Graduate School include two official transcripts from all
colleges and universities previously attended, references from at least three people who know of
the student's academic record and potential for graduate study, a non-reftindable application fee of
$55.00 for US Citizens and Permanent Residents or $65.00 for Non-Resident Aliens
(Internationals), Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) scores for students whose first
language is not English, and, in most cases, an official statement of the student's Graduate Record
Examination (GRE) scores and/or other standardized tests. The minimum paper-based TOEFL
score, unless otherwise specified, is 550, with scores of at least 50 on at least two of the sections
and no section score below 45. The minimum computer-based test score is 213, with at least 17 on
two of the three sections and no section score below 13. The student's area of special interest may
have additional requirements which are included in the individual program descriptions to follow.

Basic Requirements for Master's Degrees

A minimum of 30 semester credit hours is required for all master's degrees; however, many
programs require more than thirty. Also, many students, in order to gain the breadth desired in
their program or to make up deficits in their undergraduate degree, will actually take more credit
hours than the minimum required by the program. At least 20 semester hours must come from
500- through 800-level courses. No more than two credit hours of departmental seminar may be
included in the minimum 30-credit program. Programs that require a thesis may include no more
than six hours of research credit (695) in the minimum 30-credit-hour program. Research credit is
not appropriate in the non-thesis programs. Non-thesis programs may include no more than six
hours of independent study credits in the minimum 30-credit program. Courses at the 400 level
counted toward the minimal 30-hour requirement may not come from the major field. Master's
thesis preparation (699) credits may not be used to satisfy the 30-credit-hour requirement.

Basic Requirements for Doctoral Degrees

The doctorate symbolizes the ability of the recipient to undertake original research and scholarly
work at the highest levels without supervision. The degree is therefore not granted simply upon



63



completion of a stated amount of course work but rather upon demonstration by the student of a
comprehensive knowledge and high attainment in scholarship in a specialized field of study. The
student must demonstrate this ability by passing written and oral preliminary comprehensive
examinations in the field of specialization and related areas of knowledge, where applicable, and
by successfully defending the methodology used and conclusions reached in the research, as
reported in the dissertation, in an open oral examination. In addition, the student must complete^a
minimum of 72 graduate credit hours beyond the bachelor's degree and meet the residence
requirement as described earlier. For a student who has a master's degree, a maximum of 1 8 hours
of relevant graduate credit from the master's degree may be applied toward this minimum upon the
recommendation of the student's Graduate Advisory Committee. If a student completes a maser's
degree at NC State and continues for a doctoral degree without a break in time, up to 36 credit
hours taken while in a master's status may be used to meet minimum requirements for the doctoral
degree.

COURSES

The courses listed in this catalog are planned for the academic year 2001-02, unless otherwise
indicated. Graduate-level courses are numbered at the 500, 600, 700 and 800 levels. Advanced
undergraduates and persons holding baccalaureate degrees are eligible to enroll in 500- and 600-
level courses, which are master's courses. Courses at the 700 and 800 level are doctoral courses
and are open only to persons holding baccalaureate degrees. Exceptions may be made for
undergraduate students in honors program and seniors in bachelor's/master's programs. Consent of
the department is required for enrollment in all 600- and 800-level courses. Refer to the NC State
University Courses Catalog for coiu-se descriptions and prerequisites.
