DEFINITION AND EXPLANATION OF TERMS USED IN THIS CALENDAR

Dean of Graduate Studies

In all regulations following, reference to "the Dean" refers specifically to the Dean of Graduate Studies.

Credit Hour

A credit hour is the measure used to reflect the relative weight of a given course towards the fulfilment of appropriate degree, diploma, certificate, major, minor, or other programme requirements. Normally, a course has a credit value of three credit hours. A weight of one credit hour normally means that the course meets for lectures one hour per week for the duration of a semester or two hours per week for the duration of a session. The number of hours of required instruction, outside of lecture time, such as laboratory instruction, tutorials, etc. may or may not impact on the number of credit hours assigned to a particular course and academic units may recommend to the Senate a greater or lesser whole number of credit hours for a particular course.

Graduate Course

1. A graduate course comprises a unit/units of work in a particular subject normally extending through one semester, the completion of which carries credit toward the fulfilment of the requirements for a postbaccalaureate degree diploma or certificate.

2. Accelerated courses are not normally permissible in graduate programmes.

3. Courses required as part of a graduate student's programme are known as programme courses. Tuition for such courses is covered by the semester fee.

4. Courses which are not required as part of a graduate student's programme are known as non-programme courses. Students registering for such courses will be required to pay the appropriate per-course fee.

Policy Governing the Auditing of Courses

1. In order to audit any course, an individual must receive permission from the instructor in that course, the supervisor/advisor and the administrative head of the unit in which the course is offered. Matters to be considered shall include class size, impact on students registered for credit and other factors judged relevant by the academic unit; and permission cannot be given until the number of registrations for credit is known.

2. Individuals auditing courses shall limit their participation to that deemed appropriate by the instructor; auditors are not permitted to write formal examinations, nor to have their work formally assessed.

3. Students who require a testamur of audition may request the same from the instructor of the course. Students will not register for audit courses nor will a record of audit courses appear on students' transcripts.

Semester

A semester means a period of approximately 14 consecutive weeks during which the University is in regular session and in which period there are at least 12 teaching weeks as defined by the Senate. Normally the Fall Semester commences in early September, the Winter Semester in early January, and the Spring Semester in early May.

Academic Year

The academic year is from September 1 of one year to August 31 of the following year.

Graduate Student

A graduate student is one who has been admitted to a postbaccalaureate degree programme.

A full-time graduate student is one who registers as such, devotes full time to his or her academic programme and may not commit more than 16 hours a week of working time, including teaching assistant or research assistant duties, to matters other than the degree programme.

Programme

1. A programme, whether it comprises courses only, courses and comprehensive examination, or courses, internship, project, thesis research, paper folio is defined for each graduate student in accordance with Departmental and University Regulations. Each programme of study is recommended by the appropriate academic unit, and must be approved in writing by the Dean of Graduate Studies before the beginning of the graduate student's second year of study.

2. Responsibility for the administration of the programme shall rest with the Dean acting on behalf of the School.

NOTE: The following general statements concerning admission and degree requirements should be supplemented by the detailed regulations governing each programme.

GENERAL REGULATIONS

A) QUALIFICATIONS FOR ADMISSION

1. Master's Programme

To be considered for admission to a Master's programme, the minimum requirements will normally be a second class degree from a university of recognized standing, in an appropriate area of study.

2. Ph.D. Programme

To be considered for admission to a Ph.D. programme, the minimum requirements will normally be a Master's degree from a university of recognized standing, in an appropriate area of study.

Other students may be considered for admission to a Ph.D. programme provided that:

a) they have been registered in a Master's programme for a minimum of 12 months, and have demonstrated to the satisfaction of the Faculty or Department concerned their ability to pursue research at the Doctoral level; or

b) they hold a Bachelor's degree with Honours, or equivalent, from a university of recognized standing, and that the Department or Faculty is satisfied of the students' ability to pursue research at the Doctoral level.

3. Applicants Not Meeting Qualifications

Only in exceptional circumstances, and only upon the recommendation of the Department/Faculty/School concerned, will the Dean consider applicants who do not meet the requirements in 1. or 2. above.

4. English Proficiency Requirements

Since English is the primary language of instruction at this University, all applicants seeking admission to the School of Graduate Studies must possess an adequate knowledge of written and spoken English as a prerequisite to admission. Regardless of country of origin or of citizenship status, applicants will be required to demonstrate proficiency in the English language. This demonstration may take one of the following forms:

a) Successful completion of the equivalent of three years of full-time instruction in an English language secondary institution as recognized by Memorial University of Newfoundland including successful completion of at least two courses in English Language and/or Literature at the Grade XII (or equivalent) level. Please note that these courses must be other than E.S.L. (English as a Second Language) courses.

b) Successful completion of a baccalaureate degree from a recognized University where English is the language of instruction and from which transfer of credit may be allowed by Memorial University of Newfoundland.

c) Successful completion of a post-graduate degree programme at a recognized University where English is the language of instruction and from which transfer of credit may be allowed by Memorial University of Newfoundland.

d) Submission of official results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a score of 550 (or higher) and the Test of Written English (TWE) with a score of 4 (or higher).

e) Submission of the official results of the Michigan Test of English Proficiency with a score of 85% (or higher).

f) Submission of the official results of the English Language Testing Service (ELTS) Test with a score in Band 7 (or higher).

g) Only in exceptional circumstances and only upon the recommendation of the Department/Faculty/School concerned, will the Dean consider applicants who do not meet one of the requirements listed in a. through f. above.

Particular Departments/Faculties/Schools may require greater strength in English communicative skills than is indicated by the achievement of minimum scores outlined in d., e. and f. above. Any such additional requirements are detailed in the appropriate section of the Calendar.

6. English Language Requirements Subsequent to Admission

a) Students who have been admitted under clauses A.4.d-g above, will be required to take an English language placement test on arrival at MUN. On the basis of the test results, students may be required to complete successfully a course of language study designed to bring their English, in any or all of listening, speaking, reading, and writing, to a level required for graduate studies. A final assessment of the students' proficiency in these areas will normally be made no later than the end of the third semester following their first registration in the School of Graduate Studies. As a result of this assessment, and in consultation with the student's academic unit and the Department of English Language and Literature, there may be a recommendation for termination of the student's programme.

b) Notwithstanding A.6.a. above, if a student's department is not satisfied with the student's ability to communicate in English, then the student may be required to complete successfully the relevant component(s) of the course of study referred to in A.6.a. The department will be required to take this action within three semesters of the student's admission to a graduate programme. At the end of this period the department may recommend, but not require this procedure.

Major modifications signify the rectification of one or more of the following deficiencies: (1) misinterpretation and/or misuse of the matter covered, omission of relevant materials, unfounded conclusions, illogicality of argument and the like; (2) bad writing, (3) unacceptable physical presentation (see General Regulation J.5), or

d) totally unacceptable - the thesis/report is failed.

B. If both examiners recommend that the thesis/report is totally unacceptable, then the thesis will be failed, and shall not be re-examined.

C. If either examiner recommends that the thesis/report is unacceptable, and this recommendation is accepted by the Dean, then the student may apply to the Dean for permission to resubmit the thesis for re-examination in one of the following ways:

i. to submit a modified thesis/report to the original examiners.
ii. to submit a modified thesis/report to two new examiners.
iii. to submit the original thesis/report to the Examination Board to be appointed by the Dean.

D. If a thesis/report is re-examined, the candidate will not be awarded a pass unless all examiners find the thesis acceptable.

E. Under no circumstances may a thesis/report be re-examined more than once.

4. Evaluation of Ph.D. Theses

Candidates for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy must submit a written dissertation deemed acceptable by the University, and demonstrate their ability to defend their work in a public oral examination. For this reason, the final decision on whether a candidate will be recommended for the award of the degree is made only at the conclusion of the oral examination. (See General Regulation J.5.)

a) Responsibilities of the Thesis Examining Board

The work of each candidate will be assessed by a Thesis Examining Board. Its first responsibility is to determine whether the thesis successfully demonstrates the candidate's competence to undertake independent research work. The Board must be satisfied that the work contributes significantly to knowledge in the field of study; that the contribution is of high scholarly merit; that the candidate is aware of the pertinent published literature; that it is written in a satisfactory style; and that it is free from typographical and other mechanical errors. The second responsibility of the Board is to conduct a final oral examination of the candidate and to then recommend to the Dean of Graduate Studies whether the candidate should be awarded the degree.

b) Composition of the Thesis Examining Board

The members of the Thesis Examining Board will be appointed by the Dean on the recommendation of the Head of the academic unit who will have consulted with the supervisory committee. The Board shall consist of four members. Normally these will be the candidate's supervisor (who serves on the Board in a non-voting capacity), two examiners from within the University, and one from outside the University. However, when circumstances warrant, a second external examiner may be substituted for one of the internal examiners with permission of the Dean. Members of the supervisory committee other than the supervisor are ineligible for appointment to the Board.

c) The Examination Process

1. The voting members of the Board shall submit written reports on the thesis containing an assessment of the quality of the written work and a recommendation as to whether the candidate should be permitted to proceed to an oral examination and defence of the work. An examiner may recommend:

i) that the candidate be allowed to proceed to the oral defence of the thesis*, or;
ii) that the candidate not be allowed to proceed to the oral defence at this time**, or:
iii) that the candidate should be failed.

* Any suggested minor corrections or revisions should be outlined in the examiner's report. It is understood that it will be the responsibility of the Supervisory Committee to discuss the suggested changes with the candidate, to determine which should be incorporated in the thesis before its final submission.

** This recommendation reflects the examiner's opinion that further research, re-analysis of data, or thorough rewriting of the material is required. The thesis may, however, be re-submitted for examination.

2. No candidate will be permitted to re-submit a thesis more than once. If the Dean decides that the thesis must be revised before it can be orally defended (as specified in c.1.(ii)) the resubmitted thesis will be examined by a Board which may differ in whole or in part from the original. In the case of a re-submitted thesis an examiner may recommend only:

i) that the candidate be allowed to proceed to the oral defence of the thesis, or:
ii) that the candidate should be failed.

3. After receiving the reports from all three voting members of the Board the Dean will consider the recommendations and determine whether an oral defence of the thesis will be scheduled.

4. The Final Oral Examination and Defence of Thesis will take place at a time and place to be determined by the Dean of Graduate Studies and will be chaired by the Dean or his/her delegate. The presence of all members of the Examining Board is normally required.

5. Following the defence, the Board will meet in camera to render a final assessment of the thesis and of the candidate's ability to defend his/her work. The Board may recommend that the candidate has:

i) Passed.*
ii) Failed, but should be permitted a re-examination.**
iii) Failed and should not be permitted any re-examination.

* This recommendation may have attached to it the requirement that the candidate complete certain specified revisions to the satisfaction of the Supervisory Committee, the Head of the academic unit and the Dean.

** The members of the Thesis Examination Board may attach to this recommendation a list of any requirements which they feel are appropriate. (See General Regulation J.5.)

6. If the members of the Board are unanimous in their recommendation, the Chair of the Examination may accept this recommendation and inform the candidate of the decision. In any other case, however, the delivering of any final decision shall be deferred pending further consultation within the School of Graduate Studies.

7. No candidate shall be permitted more than two oral examinations.

5. Time Limit for Revision

The final version of Master's and Ph.D. theses/reports found acceptable with or without corrections shall be submitted to the School of Graduate Studies within 6 months of the date on which the thesis/report and the student's examiners' reports are returned to the student's academic unit. If a corrected thesis/report is not submitted within 6 months the student is considered to have withdrawn from the programme. After this time, the student must apply to be readmitted.

Master's and Ph.D. theses/reports requiring re-examination shall be resubmitted to the School of Graduate Studies within 12 months of the date on which the thesis/report and the examiner's reports are returned to the student. Students requiring resubmission and re-examination of theses/reports must maintain their registration during this period. Failure to resubmit the revised thesis/report within 12 months will result in termination of the student's programme.

6. Prepublication

Publication of material before submission of the thesis/report for examination is permitted. The School of Graduate Studies and Supervisor should be informed of such publication.

K) GRADUATION PROCEDURE

Candidates expecting to graduate at any particular Convocation must notify the School of Graduate Studies, upon which they will be given a form of application for the Graduate Degree or Graduate Diploma to be completed and submitted to the Office of the Registrar at least by the time of the submission of the Thesis, Project Report or Internship Report required by their programme, or, if applicable, by the date of the final comprehensive examination.

L) ACADEMIC BEHAVIOUR

1. Principles

In the course of a graduate degree programme students are expected to learn those principles which constitute proper academic behaviour. Within the University Community there is a collective responsibility to maintain a high level of scholarly integrity. Dishonesty has no place in the academic community. Academic misbehaviour cannot be condoned or even appear to be condoned. Students have the responsibility to ascertain those actions which could be construed as dishonest or improper. Certain flagrant violations are listed below under Academic Dishonesty. Students are reminded that for guidance on proper scholarly behaviour they should seek assistance from their instructors and supervisors. The Graduate Students' Union will provide students with information on their legal rights and the information that advice about acceptable writing standards is available through the Writing Centre.

2. Academic Dishonesty: Offences

NOTE: In the following section the plural shall be deemed to include the singular.

Academic offences shall be deemed to include, but shall not be limited to, the following:

a) Cheating: Cheating on examinations, theses, assignments, work term reports, projects, internship reports, or any other tests.

Cheating includes copying from another student's work or allowing another student to copy from one's own work, consulting with any unauthorized person during an examination or test, or using unauthorized aids; or knowingly recording or reporting false empirical or statistical data. The work referred to includes examinations, theses, assignments, work term reports, projects, internship reports, or any other tests which are to be used in judging the student's performance in a course or programme of study, or on any special tests which the University may offer.

b) Impersonation: Impersonating another student or allowing oneself to be impersonated.

By impersonation is meant the imitation of a student or entrance into an arrangement with another person to be impersonated for purposes of taking examinations or tests or carrying out laboratory or other assignments.

c) Plagiarism: Plagiarism is the act of presenting the ideas or works of another as one's own. This applies to all material such as theses, essays, laboratory reports, work term reports, design projects, seminar presentations, statistical data, computer programmes and research results. The properly acknowledged use of sources is an accepted and important part of scholarship. Use of such material without acknowledgement, however, is contrary to accepted norms of academic behaviour.

d) Theft of examination papers or other material: By theft is meant obtaining by an improper means examination papers, tests, or any other such material.

e) Use and/or distribution of stolen material: The use of material which the student knows to have been improperly obtained and/or the distribution of such material is considered to be an academic offence.

f) Submitting false information: This offence includes falsifying academic forms or records, submitting false credentials, medical or other certificates, or making a false, misleading or incomplete declaration to the University.

g) Submitting work for one course which has been or is being submitted to another course without express permission to do so: This includes the presentation of an essay, report or assignment to satisfy some or all of the requirements of a course when that essay, report, or assignment has been previously submitted or is concurrently being submitted for another course without the express permission of the professor(s) involved.

3. General Procedure

a) When a member of the University community has grounds for belief that an academic offence has been committed, that person will report the matter without delay to the Head of the Department or the appropriate academic officer (i.e., Dean or Director) of the unit in which the offence occurred. In the case of non-academic units, such as the Registrar's Office, Library and Computing Services, the matter shall be referred through the University officer in charge of that unit. The student should be informed of the suspicion as soon as possible in an effort to avoid further improper behaviour. There should then be an immediate direct attempt to resolve minor offences between the instructor or supervisor and the student(s) concerned at the departmental level. Only if resolution proves impossible, or one party is dissatisfied with the resolution, should the Department Head or other appropriate academic officer become further involved.

b) If, in the judgment of the Department Head or other appropriate academic officer (in consultation with his Dean of Faculty) the alleged offence against University regulations is such as to warrant resolution through the School of Graduate Studies, the Department Head or other appropriate academic officer will refer the matter to the Dean of Graduate Studies, and procedures for resolution by the School of Graduate Studies will be implemented.

c) If, in the judgment of the Department Head or other appropriate academic officer, the offence warrants resolution through departmental procedures, the individuals involved will be advised to attempt to resolve the matter without proceeding to a formal hearing. In the event that no resolution is possible between the individual parties, the Department Head or other appropriate academic officer will institute proceedings through the School of Graduate Studies. In all cases, it is the responsibility of the Department Head or other appropriate academic officer to ensure that fairness and impartiality are achieved in the treatment of students.

d) The principle of anonymity shall apply. All written documents shall refer to the student by number and the faculty member by letter.

4. Procedure for Departmental Resolution

If, upon receiving a report of an alleged academic offence the Department Head or other appropriate academic officer, decide that an attempt should be made to resolve that matter within the department the following procedures shall apply:

a) The Department Head or other appropriate academic officer shall request that the accusor and the accused meet with him (or her) and at the meeting the Department Head or other appropriate academic officer shall state the allegation, indicate the range of applicable penalties, and arrange a second meeting between the accusor and the accused only.

b) At the second meeting the parties (accusor and accused) shall endeavour to obtain a mutually satisfactory resolution of the matter.

c) The parties (accusor and accused) shall report jointly to the Department Head or other appropriate academic officer on the result of their second meeting.

d) If the report is of a resolution which the Department Head or other appropriate officer considers to be fair and equitable the matter shall be considered closed. If the Department Head or other appropriate academic Officer considers the reported resolution to be unfair and/or inequitable he or she will endeavour to obtain an alternative satisfactory resolution directly with the parties.

e) Should all reasonable efforts to obtain a Departmental resolution fail, the Department Head or other appropriate academic officer will refer the case to the Dean of Graduate Studies and shall inform the accusor and the accused accordingly. From this stage onward procedures for resolution by the School of Graduate Studies will apply.

NOTES: 1) The accused or accusor may request, during the procedures for an informal resolution, that the case be referred to the Dean of Graduate Studies and thereafter the procedures for resolution by the School of Graduate Studies will apply.

2) Procedures for Departmental Resolution will not be applied to cases involving alleged offences on final examinations.

3) If at any stage of the procedures for either Departmental or Graduate Studies resolution, the accused fails to appear or to respond to a charge, without reasonable cause, within two weeks of notification of an allegation, action may be taken on the charge in the absence of the accused.

4) If at any stage of the procedures for either Departmental or Graduate Studies resolution, the accusor fails to appear at a scheduled hearing to defend an allegation, without reasonable cause, within two weeks of notification by the Department Head or other appropriate academic officer, the action will be dismissed.

5. Procedures for Resolution by the School of Graduate Studies

If the matter cannot be resolved following the Procedure for Departmental Resolution as outlined above, or if the allegation involves a major breach of University regulations, the following procedures shall apply:

a) If the Department Head or other appropriate academic officer (in consultation with the Dean of his faculty) is satisfied that the student has a serious case to answer, he or she shall inform the student in writing of the nature of the case against him or her. In addition, the Department Head or other appropriate academic officer shall report to the Dean of Graduate Studies who shall immediately appoint a disinterested Investigator from the membership of the Academic Council of Graduate Studies. The Investigator will interview separately the accusor and accused and relevant witnesses. At these interviews, the Investigator, the accusor, the accused and relevant witnesses all have the right to be accompanied by a registered student or a member of the Faculty or Staff of the University.

b) Upon completion of these interviews, the Investigator shall submit a written report of all findings to the Dean of Graduate Studies.

c) The Dean of Graduate Studies shall present this report to both the accusor and accused for perusal and comment. Once in receipt of this report, the accusor and accused shall have two weeks in which to submit to the Dean of Graduate Studies any additional comments on the report that he or she wishes to be considered.

d) Upon receipt of all information from the Investigator as well as comments from the accusor and accused, the Dean of Graduate Studies shall strike an ad hoc committee to review the case and make recommendations to the Academic Council of the School of Graduate Studies. The Investigator may be asked to attend the meetings of the Ad hoc committee to answer questions and provide information pertinent to the case, but shall be absent from the formal discussion and voting.

e) The Academic Council of the School of Graduate Studies shall take appropriate action in accordance with the section headed "Penalties".

NOTES: 1) If at any stage of the procedures for either Departmental or Graduate Studies resolution, the accused fails to appear or to respond to a charge, without reasonable cause, within two weeks of notification of an allegation, action may be taken on the charge in the absence of the accused. Action will proceed regardless of the current status of the student.

2) If at any stage of the procedures for either informal or formal resolution, the accusor fails to appear at a scheduled hearing to defend an allegation without reasonable cause, within 2 weeks of notification the action will be dismissed.

6. Penalties

The imposition of any of the penalties listed below does not preclude further action under the Criminal Code of Canada. A student who has been found guilty of an academic offence will be subject to a penalty or penalties commensurate with the offence. The range of penalties and their determination is given below. Enforcement of penalties resulting from Procedures for Resolution by the School of Graduate Studies will be overseen by the Registrar. Some cases may warrant more than one penalty for the same offence, and previous academic misconduct will be taken into account in determining penalties. Penalties resulting from Department resolution shall be limited to 6.(a) and 6.(b). Penalties shall be imposed on the basis of the student's status at the time of the offence.

a) Reprimand: This shall be in the nature of a warning by the Department Head, or appropriate academic officer or an appropriate Committee to the student that his/her behaviour has been unacceptable to the University.

b) Reduction of grade: A reduction of grade will apply to an examination, test, or assignment to which an offence is relevant, and will be decided by the Academic Council of the School of Graduate Studies upon the recommendation of the Department concerned in the case of a resolution by the School of Graduate Studies, or by a Department Head, or appropriate academic officer in the case of a Departmental resolution. Since graduate students must obtain a B grade in required courses and a pass in additional courses a reduction of grade could lead to termination of programme.

c) Probation: The period of probation will be determined by the Academic Council of the School of Graduate Studies. The impact of being placed on probation is that the commission of any further academic offence during the period of probation may lead to suspension or expulsion.

d) Suspension: Suspension will apply to a course, department, faculty, school, or the University. The period of suspension will be determined by the Academic Council of the School of Graduate Studies and shall not exceed three consecutive semesters, and shall be part of the allowable time for a graduate programme.

e) Expulsion: The recommendation for expulsion from the University will be made by the Academic Council of the School of Graduate Studies to the President for his/her final decision. Prior to the President's decision, the Secretary of the Academic Council will notify the accused, in writing, of the recommendation for expulsion from the University. The accused will be allowed a period of two weeks following the date of release of such notification to lodge an appeal before the President's final decision concerning expulsion from the University. Any such appeal should be made in writing to the Executive Committee of Senate.

f) Revocation of Degree: The recommendation will be made by the Academic Council of the School of Graduate Studies that the Senate rescind a degree that has been obtained by submission of fraudulent or plagiarized work.

7. Transcript Entries

Transcript entries shall relate to the penalty(ies) imposed as follows:

Penalty Transcript Entry
Reprimand No transcript entry
Reduction of Grade Entry of final grade for course
Probation "On probation at the University for academic misconduct
until Day, Month, Year"*
Suspension "Suspended from the School of Graduate Studies for academic
misconduct until Day, Month, Year"*
Expulsion "Expelled from the University for academic misconduct"
Revocation of Degree "Degree revoked for Academic Dishonesty"

* These entries may be removed from the students' transcript on petition to the Senate but not before three years from the date the penalty was imposed.

8. Disposition of Documentation

The disposition of documents relating to allegations under these procedures shall be as follows:

a) The cases where the allegation was either found "not proven" or "unfounded" no documentation shall be retained.

OTHERWISE

b) In the case of a resolution effected through the procedures for departmental resolution, all documentation shall be retained in the office of the relevant Department Head or other appropriate academic officer.

OR

c) In the case of a resolution effected through the procedures for resolution by the School of Graduate Studies all documentation shall be forwarded to the Office of the Registrar.

9. Right of Appeal

Appeals against decisions of the Academic Council of the School of Graduate Studies made under Regulation L.5 shall be directed to the Executive Committee of Senate.

NOTES: 1) These PROCEDURES shall apply to all academic offences relating to graduate studies involving, but not limited to, those students who either have been or who are enrolled at Memorial University. Notification of an allegation of academic dishonesty will be forwarded to the last known mailing address of the student as noted on the files of the School of Graduate Studies. The University reserves the right to implement action under these PROCEDURES where an allegation has been made against a student but where reasonable efforts to contact the student have failed.

2) While a student can continue in a programme of studies, if eligible, while an investigation under these PROCEDURES is being carried out, the University does not accept liability for any consequences to the student's progress including retroactive effect on grades and promotion within a programme, arising from an investigation and any negative decision rendered. However, the University may take these consequences into account as appropriate, and to the extent feasible, in cases where charges are dropped or the student is found not guilty.

M) TERMINATION OF A GRADUATE PROGRAMME

Grounds for termination of a Graduate Programme are as follows:

1. a) Failure to obtain the required grades in courses as stated in the appropriate degree regulations (See G);

b) Failure in comprehensive examinations (see H);

c) Recommendation of the Supervisory Committee (see I);

d) Failure of Thesis, Project or Internship (see J);

e) Failure to register in any semester by the final date for adding courses (see C.3);

f) Lack of progress in a programme;

g) Failure to comply with the conditions of admission into a programme, unless the conditions of admission have been changed with approval of the academic unit and the School of Graduate Studies; or

h) Academic misconduct as outlined under General Regulation L governing the School of Graduate Studies.

2. The foregoing notwithstanding the University reserves the right to require students to discontinue their programme or to deny them admission where, in the opinion of the Academic Council of the School of Graduate Studies, following appropriate professional consultation, there is a reasonable likelihood that a student's health or conduct could result in endangering the lives, health or safety of other persons on campus or in settings related to the student's university studies.

N) PROVISION FOR REAPPLICATION

1. A student whose programme of studies has been terminated for any of the reasons enumerated in section 'M' of the General Regulations may apply for admission to a new programme of studies leading to the same degree.

2. Notwithstanding the above, a student whose programme of studies has been terminated under General Regulation M.1.e. FAILURE TO REGISTER, shall be readmitted to the existing programme only under the following conditions:

a) on the recommendation of the appropriate academic unit.

b) on the payment to the University of those registration fees which would have been payable had the student remained in continuous registration during the period since the termination of the programme;

c) on the understanding that the time period during which the student was not registered shall be considered as part of the maximum time permitted for the completion of the degree.

Applicants are advised to consult, in addition to the regulations governing the degree of Master of Arts, both the general regulations and the particular regulations of the appropriate Departments.

A) QUALIFICATIONS FOR ADMISSION

1. Admission is limited and competitive. To be considered for admission an applicant shall hold a Bachelor's degree or its equivalent from an institution recognized by the Senate and shall have a knowledge of the proposed field of specialization satisfactory to the Department concerned (or Departments, when inter-disciplinary study is intended) and to the Dean.

2. Preference will normally be given to applicants who hold an appropriate Honours degree, either from Memorial University, or from another university whose Honours degree is of comparable standing. Any other applicant who holds a Bachelor's degree or its equivalent will be considered for admission provided that:

a) the applicant's undergraduate record after the first year shows an average of at least grade B in courses in the proposed field of specialization.

b) the applicant's overall undergraduate record after the first year shows an average of at least grade B in all courses taken, and

c) the Department concerned satisfies the Dean that the applicant's work exhibits evidence of academic excellence.

Only in exceptional circumstances, and only on the recommendation of the Department concerned, will the Dean consider applicants who do not meet the requirements in (a) and (b). Such applicants, however, must meet the requirements in (c).

3. An applicant may be required to demonstrate a satisfactory knowledge of the proposed field of study in an examination administered by the Department or Departments.

4. In most cases instruction is in English, and examinations and theses are to be written in English. (Language Departments, however, give instruction in the pertinent language and often require examinations and theses to be written in the language. In addition, other Departments may permit or even require examinations and/or theses to be written in a language other than English).

B) PROGRAMME OF STUDY AND RESEARCH

1. The programme of study for the Master of Arts degree shall consist of the successful completion of a programme of courses and, in accordance with departmental regulations, either of a thesis embodying systematic research or of a Comprehensive Examination.

2. Every candidate shall read at least 12 credit hours in programme courses at the graduate level in one subject or in closely related subjects. Departmental regulations may require more courses than the minimum and this higher number is listed where applicable in the regulations of the Department.

3. Students may, with the approval of the Dean, augment their programme with a limited number of other courses of their choice. Passing grades are not required in these non-programme courses in order to continue in graduate studies or obtain a Master's degree.

However, the final grades in these courses will be recorded on the student's transcripts. The grading system in non-programme courses shall be that appropriate to the particular course.

4. Candidates submitting a Thesis on an approved topic shall conduct systematic research under the direction of a Supervisor recommended by the appropriate Department or Departments and approved by the Dean. The candidate may be required to take an oral examination.

5. Changes in either the programme of courses or the topic of the Thesis require the approval of the Dean.

6. On the recommendation of the Head of the Department, the Dean may waive, in part, the course requirements for a Master's degree.

7. Application for transfer from the Master of Arts to the Master of Philosophy is to be made to the Dean before the end of the second semester in the case of full-time students, and in the case of part-time students before 18 graduate credit hours have been completed.

8. The Dean may approve an application to transfer from the M.A. to the M.Phil. only when a new integrated programme, acceptable to the Dean, is submitted.

C) EVALUATION

1. In order to continue in the School of Graduate Studies and in order to qualify for a Master's degree, a candidate shall obtain an A or B grade in each regulation course. Some candidates may be required to read a specified number of additional graduate or undergraduate courses for which a passing grade must be achieved.

2. Students registered for credit shall write their examinations in their graduate courses at a time to be determined by the Dean on the recommendation of the Department.

3. Students registered in undergraduate courses shall satisfy examination requirements in these courses.

4. When, on a basis of consultation with the candidate, the instructors in graduate courses, and the thesis supervisor, the Head of a Department has determined that the candidate's work has fallen below a satisfactory level, the Head may recommend to the Dean that the candidate be required to withdraw from the programme.

D) THESIS OR REPORT

See General Regulation J. THESES AND REPORTS

ANTHROPOLOGY

Associate Professor and Head of the Department
M.A.P. Renouf

The degree of Master of Arts is offered in Anthropology by either full-time or part-time study.

1. Candidates may specialize in either:

a) social and cultural anthropology, or
b) archaeology and physical anthropology, or
c) applied anthropology.

The choice of specialty will govern the selection of courses.

2. Normally, the M.A. programme should take two years to complete, of which the first year is to be spent in tutorial and seminar work and writing of a research proposal, and the second in actual research and thesis writing.

3. The Department reserves the right to require candidates to complete additional undergraduate courses before beginning programme courses, if the candidate's record suggests a deficiency in some areas; in such cases, more than two years may be necessary to complete the programme.

4. Candidates are normally required to take 18 credit hours in programme courses in addition to writing a thesis. If the student has had adequate preparation before entering the M.A. programme (e.g., an Honours B.A. in Anthropology, or non-degree course-work beyond the B.A., or excellent work in a four-year B.A. programme) the Department may recommend to the Dean that as many as six credit hours in these required courses may be waived.

5. The Department's graduate courses are all taught in a tutorial framework, and require intensive reading and preparation of papers. There are also regular Department seminars at which attendance and participation by first-year graduate students are mandatory.

6. Candidates preparing their thesis proposals under an approved Supervisor will normally be expected to present their proposals in a workshop before commencing actual research and in any case before the anniversary of first registration. At least one additional workshop will be held in the period following research and before submission of the thesis.

3. Graduate students in Classics will be required to pass two exams based on reading lists of Greek and Roman authors. The exams test students' ability to translate from Greek and Latin into English and also require some commentary on the set texts. Students are expected to write these exams in the fourth semester of their programme of study.

4. Students are required to demonstrate, as early as possible, and no later than the fourth semester of their programme of study, an ability to read German or French or Italian. Students shall satisfy this requirement by writing a translation exam set by the Department.

ECONOMICS

Professor and Head of the Department
E.Y. Tsoa

The degree of Master of Arts is offered in Economics. The focus of the programme is applied economics in the fields of Natural Resource Economics and Public Sector Economics. Students must specialize in one of those two fields. Other fields may be added in the future. The programme is designed so that suitably qualified students can complete it in three semesters.

A) QUALIFICATIONS FOR ADMISSION

To be considered for admission an applicant must normally have completed an undergraduate degree in economics with at least second-class Honours standing or its equivalent. Applicants who do not satisfy this criterion may be admitted following completion of specified undergraduate courses as deemed necessary by the Department.

B) PROGRAMME OF STUDY

The programme of study requires completion of 18 credit hours in graduate courses in economics and a thesis. These 18 credit hours must include three core courses, Economics 6000, 6001 and 6002; and nine credit hours in field courses which students must select from either the field of Natural Resource Economics or Public Sector Economics.

Normally, the three core courses must be completed before the three field courses, and all 18 credit hours must be taken on a full-time basis.

C) THESIS

1. The thesis topic should normally be related to the field chosen by the student for the field courses. A brief thesis proposal must be presented by the student in the semester in which they register for the last of their required courses. The thesis will consist of a comprehensive study in applied economics, which must embody systematic research and demonstrate a mastery of economic principles and their application. The purpose of the thesis is to provide the student with experience in independently applying economic theory and methods to a policy issue, and presenting that work in a comprehensive fashion.

2. The nature of the thesis is such that students can expect to complete it in one semester if working on it intensively. However, the thesis must be completed within two years following completion of the six required graduate courses. Thesis work will be completed under a supervisor from the Department.

3. The thesis will normally be evaluated internally and in accordance with the requirements of the School of Graduate Studies.

COURSES

The following courses will be offered to meet the requirements of candidates, as far as resources of the Department will allow.

Core Courses

The Memorial University of Newfoundland Folklore and Language Archive was a joint creation of the Departments of Folklore and English. It was set up to co-ordinate diverse research in Newfoundland studies undertaken in both Departments, to facilitate the mutual use of common material, to organize it for research and publication, and to make a permanent documented record for future generations. The Folklore and Language Archive is an integral part of the teaching and research activities of the Department of Folklore at both the graduate and undergraduate level.

The Archive comprises extensive collections of Newfoundland and Labrador folksongs and music, folk narratives of many kinds, oral history, folk customs, beliefs and practices, childlore and descriptions of material culture. It has special collections of the Newfoundland vocabulary, proverbs and riddles and collections towards a linguistic atlas. The materials have been collected by a variety of means: by questionnaires, by student contributions in manuscript, by extensive field work utilizing tape recorders, and by searching printed sources.

The Archive is housed in the G.A. Hickman Building. Associated with it is a recording room, with facilities for copying tapes and records and for the making of recordings. The specially excerpted collections in language and proverbs are housed in the English Language Research Centre of the Department of English, and in the Department's Language Laboratory. French language materials are housed in the Centre d'Etudes Franco-Terreneuviennes in the Department of Folklore. Each department has a working library associated with the Archive material.

GEOGRAPHY

Associate Professor and Head of the Department
K. Butler

The degrees of Master of Arts and Master of Science are offered in Geography by full-time or part-time study. In some circumstances, degree requirements may be fulfilled by part-time study, but only after a student has completed at least one semester of full-time study.

1. Admission requirements are set forth in the General Regulations for the degrees of Master of Arts and Master of Science. Students who meet the requirements and are admitted will register for the M.A. programme if their fields of interest lie in Human Geography (for example, cultural/historical, economic, population, urban) or for the M.Sc. if their fields of interest are in Physical Geography (for example, climatology, geomorphology, remote sensing). Students in cartography or resources may be admitted to the M.A. or M.Sc. degree. Transfer between the M.A. or M.Sc. is possible and will be made where the proposed research and programme of courses are consistent with the other degree. Recommendations to the School of Graduate Studies concerning such transfers will be made by the Head of the Department, in consultation with the faculty and the student involved.

2. Candidates may commence their programmes in Fall, Winter or Spring Semesters, although commencement other than in the Fall semester may be undertaken only with the approval of the Head of the Department and those members of faculty who will be involved in the student's programme.

3. The programme of study and research for the M.A. or M.Sc. will normally require up to two years of full-time work. Candidates are required to obtain a grade of "A" or "B" in graduate programme courses comprising twelve credit hours.

Geography 6000 will be a required course for all graduate students. The other courses should include a course in the student's special area of interest and a course which deals with research techniques either in general, or as applied to a particular field of enquiry. Courses taken in other departments must be approved by the Head of the Department prior to registration. Extra programme courses may be recommended to students where the supervisory committee and the Head of the Department agree they are necessary. Students will normally register for six credit hours in the first semester of study and six credit hours in the second semester. Changes to the programme of courses may be made with the approval of the supervisory committee, the Head of the Department, and the Dean of Graduate Studies in consultation with the student.

4. A student is admitted to graduate studies only if a faculty member agrees to act as supervisor. After the student is admitted, a supervisory committee will be named, normally consisting of the supervisor and two other members of the faculty, one of whom may be external to the department. During the first semester of study the committee will advise the student on writing a brief statement outlining the probable area of study and research for the thesis. This must be submitted to the Head of the Department before the beginning of the following semester. After this, a change of supervisor or membership of the supervisory committee may be made with the agreement of a majority of the parties involved, i.e. student, committee members, and head of the Department. The Department requires that a written research proposal, approved and supported by the Supervisory Committee, be completed by the last day of classes of the second semester of study. The student is required to present a seminar on his/her research to the Department during the course of the programme.

5. A candidate may be required to take an examination for reading or speaking a language other than English should the supervisory committee deem it necessary.

6. The thesis will normally be submitted for examination before the end of two years from the time of initial registration.

7. Students who have completed the Diploma in Remote Sensing at the Nova Scotia College of Geographic Sciences and who have been admitted to the M.Sc. programme in Geography, will be governed by the degree requirements above except in the following instances:

a) Candidates will be required to successfully complete a minimum of six credit hours in graduate courses, including Geography 6000, unless the candidate has already successfully completed an acceptable equivalent course.

b) The candidate must submit a completed thesis proposal by the last day of lectures in his/her first semester of registration in the programme.

ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE

Professor and Head of the Department
G.P. Jones

The degrees of Master of Arts, Master of Philosophy, and Doctor of Philosophy are offered in English Language and Literature.

Candidates for the M.A. in English may complete the programme as either part-time or full-time students. Candidates for the M.Phil. must spend at least two consecutive semesters as full-time students. Candidates for the Ph.D. in English must be in attendance as full-time students for at least three semesters of the programme.

MASTER OF PHILOSOPHY

The Master of Philosophy in English Language and Literature is normally a two-year programme comprising thirty credit hours in graduate courses. While the aim is to broaden and deepen the student's knowledge of the whole field of English Language and Literature, it may be possible for the student to focus to some extent on particular areas of interest.

A candidate who does not hold an Honours degree (or its equivalent: 60 credit hours in English with an average of grade B or higher) may be required to complete, in addition to the 30 required credit hours in graduate courses, such undergraduate courses as the Department may deem necessary. Candidates who have not previously completed English 4100, 4101 and 4900, or courses equivalent to them, will normally be required to register for these in addition to the 30 credit hours in graduate courses.

Evaluation

i. There will be two two-hour written examinations. If the student has selected a special area of concentration (e.g., drama, North American Literature, the English language) one of the examinations will be on that area. If the student has selected no special area of concentration, but has instead tried to broaden and deepen his knowledge of the whole subject, both examination periods will be devoted to general topics in English language and literature.

ii. There will be an oral examination covering the whole field of English language and literature.

iii. See Regulations (D) and (E) of the General Regulations governing the Degree of Master of Philosophy.

COURSES

A selection of the following graduate courses will be offered to meet the requirements of candidates, as far as the resources of the Department will allow.

NOTES: 1) Since it is impossible to list in detail the many topics that may from time to time be offered, the titles below refer only to the major periods and general subject areas in which specific courses may be available. The content and approach in specific courses will vary according to the research interests of students and faculty involved in the course. Students should consult the Department's annual Graduate Student Guide (or the Graduate Co-ordinator) for detailed descriptions of specific course offerings. Normally, no fewer than ten graduate courses are offered in any given academic year.

2) English 5900 cannot be counted as one of the required graduate courses in any programme.

The Master of Philosophy in Humanities has been designed for students from any discipline. It is directed to students who hold an honours bachelor's degree or its equivalent. The object of the M.Phil. in Humanities programme is to provide students with an opportunity to see the historical and logical context of their own disciplinary points of view. The programme is based on the interaction of a group of students of varying backgrounds and interests studying a common core of texts in a shared set of courses.

The programme draws scholarly participation from faculty members in a range of academic disciplines within the School of Graduate Studies. The programme is administered by a Board of Studies with membership appointed by the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies.

MASTER OF PHILOSOPHY

See also General Regulations governing the degree of Master of Philosophy.

This Programme is offered by the School of Graduate Studies, and will draw scholarly participation from among those appropriately qualified faculty members wishing to participate, regardless of Department or Faculty affiliation.

A) QUALIFICATIONS FOR ADMISSION

1. Admission is limited and competitive. The number of students admitted to the programme will be strictly limited to ensure small classes and maximum student-faculty contact. To be considered for admission an applicant will normally hold an Honours Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) from an institution recognized by the Senate, and will have a breadth of knowledge in one or more of the Humanities disciplines satisfactory to the Board of Studies, and to the Dean.

2. Applicants who do not hold an Honours degree (or equivalent) will be required to complete, prior to admission, a number of undergraduate courses, the nature and number of which will be determined on the basis of the applicants' undergraduate record by the Director of Studies in consultation with the Board of Studies. Candidates will be required to complete such designated pre-admission courses with a minimum overall average of 70%.

B) ADMINISTRATION

1. The programme will be administered by a Board of Studies, the members of which will be appointed by the Dean of Graduate Studies from among the participating faculty.

2. There will be a Director of Studies who will function as chairman of the Board of Studies and will make recommendations to the Dean concerning admission, financial support for students, and all other matters pertaining to the programme.

3. Responsibility for the allocation of teaching and the support of related research will be managed by agreement between the Deans of the appropriate Faculties, the Heads of Departments of participating faculty members, and the Director of Studies, in consultation with the Dean of Graduate Studies.

4. The Board of Studies will be empowered to secure external grant funding where appropriate, and to manage all related administrative and financial matters as necessary.

C) PROGRAMME OF STUDY

1. Every candidate shall read thirty credit hours in regulation courses, as outlined below. The courses will permit students to develop a thorough knowledge of 30 basic texts, and a working familiarity with a further group of support texts.

2. Every candidate shall be required to maintain and submit a programme Journal which will be monitored and evaluated by the Board of Studies. The Journal will comprise the candidate's critical reflections arising out of analyses of designated key themes common to the several disciplines which constitute the programme.

3. Each time one of the courses which comprise the thirty credit hours is offered, the Director of Studies acting under the direction of the Board of Studies, will submit to the Dean for approval, two lists containing the titles of the works to be studied on that occasion.

List A:

Three works, selected in the light of the course theme designated by the Board of Studies, which students will consider closely and on which they will be examined in detail.

List B:

Works on which students will be examined in less detail.

D) COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATION

1. Each candidate must pass a general comprehensive examination.

2. The Examination Committee shall be appointed by the Dean on the recommendation of the Board of Studies. The Committee shall consist of either three or five members. The candidate shall be informed of the names of the committee well before the examination.

3. The candidate and the tutor will normally agree when the candidate may sit the general comprehensive examination. However, the Board of Studies must accede to the candidate's request to sit a comprehensive examination, except that in no circumstances may a candidate attempt the general comprehensive examination before his or her course programme is completed.

4. The schedule for the examination shall be agreed by the candidate, the tutor, and the Examining Committee, and shall be promulgated by the Dean.

5. The examination shall consist of a written part and an oral part. The time between the written and the oral parts shall normally be from one to four weeks.

6. The oral examination shall be from one to three hours in length, shall be conducted by the Examining Committee, and shall be open only to the Examination Committee, members of the Board of Studies and members of the Departments concerned.

7. A candidate must satisfy the Examining Committee in both parts of the examination to obtain a pass.

8. The successful completion of the comprehensive examination is the final academic requirement for the Master of Philosophy degree.

LINGUISTICS

Associate Professor and Head of the Department
J.R. Black

MASTER OF PHILOSOPHY

1. The M.Phil. in Linguistics is normally a two-year programme consisting of thirty credit hours in graduate courses and additional undergraduate or graduate courses to ensure that all candidates complete a fairly broad overview of the field.

2. To be admitted to an M.Phil. programme, a student should normally hold a B.A. with a major in Linguistics.

3. Students taking the M.Phil. Comprehensive Examination will have a choice of the following two methods of evaluation:

a) Submission of one longer or two shorter research papers followed by an oral examination of the written submissions.

b) Two two-hour written examinations, followed by an oral examination of this written work. The written examinations will involve two Core Areas which the student has chosen for his or her coursework specialization (as outlined in the Graduate Student Brochure of Linguistics Department). The oral examination will also include issues of a general and theoretical nature; for these the student is advised to be familiar with the reading lists provided in Linguistics 6601.

The written examinations are based on reading lists established specifically for the M.Phil. Comprehensive.

These reading lists are available from the office of the departmental secretary. In each area, modifications to the reading list may be made, depending on the student's individual specialization. The student's M.Phil. comprehensive examination committee will be responsible, in consultation with the student, for the final version of the reading list.

4. For further details the student should consult General Regulations G and H and the examination guidelines contained in the Departmental Graduate Brochure. It should be noted, in particular, that a period of at least three weeks is necessary after the presentation of the written work in order to organize the Comprehensive Examination.

C) EVALUATION AND ADVANCEMENT

1. In order to continue in good standing in the programme and in order to qualify for the Master's degree, a candidate shall obtain a grade of A or B for programme courses, complete three Work Terms, and submit a thesis (See Clause J. (Theses and Reports) of the General Regulations governing all students in the School of Graduate Studies).

2. The dates for starting and finishing each Work Term are shown in the University Diary. Successful completion of the Work Term requirements is a prerequisite to graduation.

3. A competition for Work Term employment is organized by the Co-operative Education Services Centre (CESC). Students may also obtain their own Work Term jobs outside the competition. Such jobs must be confirmed by letter from the employer and approved by the Head of Psychology and by the CESC on or before the first day of the Work Term.

By entering the competition, students give permission for the CESC to supply their University transcripts to potential employers.

4. The overall evaluation of the Work Term is the responsibility of the CESC. The Work Term evaluation shall consist of two components:

a) On-the-job Student Performance: Assessed by a co-ordinator using information gathered during the Work Term and input from the employer towards the end of the Work Term. Formal written documentation from the employer is sought.

b) The Work Report:

i. Evaluated by a member of the CESC or a member of faculty. If an employer designates a report to be of a confidential nature, both employer and co-ordinator must agree as to the methods to protect the confidentiality of such a report before the report may be accepted for evaluation.

ii. Reports must be prepared according to American Psychological Association specifications and contain original work related to the Work Term placement. The topic must relate to the work experience and will be chosen by the student in consultation with the employer.

For promotion from the Work Term, a student must obtain at least 65% in each component.

5. If a student fails to achieve the standards outlined above in their Work Term the student will be required to withdraw from the programme and may be considered for re-admission after the lapse of two semesters, at which time the student will be required to complete a further Work Term with satisfactory performance before being admitted to any further academic term in the Faculty. A work term may be repeated once.

6. A student who has been required to withdraw from the programme as a result of failing to meet the requirements of one Academic Term will not be eligible for re-admission to the programme.

7. Students are not permitted to drop Work Terms without prior approval of the Graduate Studies Committee of the Department of Psychology, upon the recommendation of the CESC. The Graduate Studies Committee will make a recommendation to the Head of Department who will make the final decision. Students who drop a Work Term without permission, or who fail to honour an agreement to work with an employer, or who conduct themselves in such a manner as to cause their discharge from the job, will normally be awarded a failed grade for the Work Term. Permission to drop a Work Term does not constitute a waiver of degree requirements, and students who have obtained such permission must complete an approved Work Term in lieu of the one dropped.

8. The student's thesis proposal must be accepted by his or her thesis committee prior to the commencement of the fourth academic term. Acceptance of the thesis shall follow normal Psychology Department procedures, i.e., all committee members must sign the proposal. Thesis data will not normally be collected during a Work Term. In cases where research information is gathered during a work term the student must obtain written authorization from both the employer and the thesis supervisory committee before the material can be used in the thesis.

CO-OPERATIVE EDUCATION SERVICES CENTRE

General management of the work terms in the Co-operative Programme is the responsibility of the University Co-operative Education Policy Committee, Co-operative Education Coordination Committee and the Co-operative Education Services Centre (CESC). The CESC and the respective programme coordinators are responsible for assisting potential employers to become involved in the programme, for the continual development of employment opportunities, for arranging student employer interviews, for counselling of students, for visiting them on their work assignments and for the grading of the work term.

Students are placed by the Psychology Department's Programme Coordinator with the aid of the Co-operative Education Services Centre to fit expressed preferences as far as possible. Placements are not guaranteed, but every effort is made to ensure that appropriate employment is made available. In the case of a student who is required to withdraw from the programme, the CESC and the Psychology Department have no responsibility for placement until the student has been re-admitted to the programme.

Salaries paid co-operative students are determined within the employer's own wage structure, and can be expected to increase as the student progresses through the programme and assumes more responsibility. However, students should not expect the income from work terms to make them completely self-supporting.

Students in the Co-operative Programme give permission to prospective employers, in the course of the interview process, to have access to their records, which contain their academic marks and their work term evaluation. After placement, students may not withdraw from a specific job situation unless prior permission is obtained from the Chair of Applied Social Co-operative Programme.

GEOGRAPHY

Associate Professor and Head of the Department
K. Butler

The degrees of Master of Arts and Master of Science are offered in Geography by full-time or part-time study. In some circumstances, degree requirements may be fulfilled by part-time study, but only after a student has completed at least one semester of full-time study.

1. Admission requirements are set forth in the General Regulations for the degrees of Master of Arts and Master of Science. Students who meet the requirements and are admitted will register for the M.A. programme if their fields of interest lie in Human Geography (for example, cultural/historical, economic, population, urban) or for the M.Sc. if their fields of interest are in Physical Geography (for example, climatology, geomorphology, remote sensing). Students in cartography or resources may be admitted to the M.A. or M.Sc. degree. Transfer between the M.A. or M.Sc. is possible and will be made where the proposed research and programme of courses are consistent with the other degree. Recommendations to the School of Graduate Studies concerning such transfers will be made by the Head of the Department, in consultation with the faculty and the student involved.

2. Candidates may commence their programmes in Fall, Winter or Spring Semesters, although commencement other than in the Fall semester may be undertaken only with the approval of the Head of the Department and those members of faculty who will be involved in the student's programme.

3. The programme of study and research for the M.A. or M.Sc. will normally require up to two years of full-time work. Candidates are required to obtain a grade of "A" or "B" in programme courses comprising twelve credit hours.

Geography 6000 will be a required programme course unless the student has already passed an equivalent honours or graduate course. The other courses should include a course in the student's special area of interest and a course which deals with research techniques either in general, or as applied to a particular field of enquiry. Courses taken in other departments must be approved by the Head of the Department prior to registration. Extra programme courses may be recommended to students where the supervisory committee and the Head of the Department agree they are necessary. Students will normally register for six credit hours in the first semester of study and six credit hours in the second semester. Changes to the programme of courses may be made with the approval of the supervisory committee, the Head of the Department, and the Dean of Graduate Studies in consultation with the student.

4. A student is admitted to graduate studies only if a faculty member agrees to act as supervisor. After the student is admitted, a supervisory committee will be named, normally consisting of the supervisor and two other members of the faculty, one of whom may be external to the department. During the first semester of study the committee will advise the student on writing a brief statement outlining the probable area of study and research for the thesis. This must be submitted to the Head of the Department before the beginning of the following semester. After this, a change of supervisor or membership of the supervisory committee may be made with the agreement of a majority of the parties involved, i.e. student, committee members, and head of the Department. The Department requires that a written research proposal, approved and supported by the Supervisory Committee, be completed by the last day of classes of the second semester of study. The student is required to present a seminar on his/her research to the Department during the course of the programme.

5. A candidate may be required to take an examination for reading or speaking a language other than English should the supervisory committee deem it necessary.

6. The thesis will normally be submitted for examination before the end of two years from the time of initial registration.

7. Students who have completed the Diploma in Remote Sensing at the Nova Scotia College of Geographic Sciences and who have been admitted to the M.Sc. programme in Geography, will be governed by the degree requirements above except in the following instances:

a) Candidates will be required to successfully complete a minimum of six credit hours in graduate courses, one of which shall be Geography 6000, unless the candidate has already successfully completed an acceptable equivalent course.

b) The candidate must submit a completed thesis proposal by the last day of lectures in his/her first semester of registration in the programme.

PHYSICS AND PHYSICAL OCEANOGRAPHY

Professor and Head of the Department
S.P. Reddy

Programmes leading to the degree of Master of Science in Physics and in Physical Oceanography are offered to both full- and part-time students. Because Oceanography is multidisciplinary in nature, undergraduate students who plan to undertake Physical Oceanography studies are urged to consult the faculty member in charge of Physical Oceanography programmes at their earliest opportunity, in order to ensure the appropriateness of their undergraduate course selections. The degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Physics is offered through both full-time and part-time study in Atomic and Molecular Physics, Condensed Matter Physics, and Physical Oceanography. The following Departmental Regulations are supplementary to the General Regulations governing the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees. A thorough familiarity with the latter Regulations should be regarded as the prerequisite to further reading in this section.

The Department of Physics and Physical Oceanography compiles, and regularly reviews, a brochure which contains reasonably detailed descriptions of currently active research projects, as well as comprehensive listing of recent research publications, and other material which may be of interest to prospective graduate students.

MASTER OF SCIENCE

1. Admission to a M.Sc. programme in the Department of Physics and Physical Oceanography is normally restricted to candidates holding an Honours B.Sc. degree in Physics. However, depending on background and area of specialization and with particular reference to Physical Oceanography, other Baccalaureate degrees in science, applied science or mathematics, may be accepted.

2. A programme of study for the M.Sc. degree in Physics or Physical Oceanography shall include a minimum of 15 credit hours in programme courses, normally selected from the graduate course offerings of the Department. Depending on background and area of specialization, additional graduate and/or undergraduate courses may be required.

3. Except with the special permission of the Department and the approval of the Dean of Graduate Studies, a candidate may not take any courses in addition to those approved for his/her M.Sc. programme.

4. Prior to submission of the thesis to the School of Graduate Studies for examination, the student must present a thesis seminar, which consists of a presentation of approximately 20-30 minutes duration, on the material contained in the thesis. Following the seminar the candidate will be questioned on the material contained in the thesis by a panel consisting of the thesis supervisor(s) and at least two additional members, one of whom must be a member of the Department. The members of the panel will be appointed by the Head of Department, in consultation with the thesis supervisor(s). Deficiencies noted in the thesis by the panel will be communicated to the student and the supervisor(s) for consideration prior to the submission of the thesis to the School of Graduate Studies for final examination.

Members of the department carry out research in several areas of experimental and theoretical physics, including atomic and molecular physics, condensed matter physics, physical oceanography, theoretical geophysics and applied nuclear physics. In atomic and molecular physics, there are experimental programmes in collision-induced infrared absorption spectroscopy, electron emission spectroscopy of simple molecules, molecular ions and free radicals, laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy, and Raman spectroscopy, and theoretical work on atomic and molecular collisions. The work in condensed matter physics includes experimental programmes in solid state nuclear magnetic resonance on systems of biophysical interest, Raman spectroscopy of lipid bilayers and membranes, studies of phase transitions using Brillouin and Raman spectroscopy, studies of instabilities and pattern formation in simple fluid dynamical systems, and spectroscopic studies of molecular crystals. Theoretical condensed matter physics research involves studies of magnetism, superconductivity, and the statistical mechanics of polymers and lipid bilayers. The physical oceanography group carries out field and laboratory research on several projects which take advantage of Newfoundland's unique oceanographic environment, using acoustic and other remote sensing techniques. These include studies of circulation on the Newfoundland and Labrador shelves, Labrador current dynamics, fjord dynamics, submarine canyons and sediment transport dynamics in the nearshore zone and on the shelf. Theoretical oceanographic studies involve the modelling of ocean circulation, gravity wave phenomena and other aspects of ocean dynamics. Research in theoretical geophysics is concentrated on whole-Earth dynamics, with special emphasis on the physics of the liquid core (the Earth's "third ocean") as inferred from its wave spectrum and the associated momentum transfer to the deformable solid parts of the Earth. In nuclear physics, research is done on the atmospheric concentrations of radioactive elements and on dosimetry for medical applications.

Candidates for the M.Phil. must spend at least two consecutive semesters as full-time students. Candidates for the Ph.D. in English must be in attendance as full-time students for at least three semesters of the programme.

DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY

1. A candidate who does not hold a Master's degree in English or its equivalent from a recognized university shall be required to complete a programme of not fewer than eighteen credit hours in graduate courses.

2. Candidates who have not completed English 4900 (Bibliography I) or an equivalent course or courses will be required to complete English 5900 (Bibliography and Research Methods). The course will not count as one of the required courses in any graduate programme. The course will be graded as Pass/Fail. As in other graduate courses a grade of 65B or above is considered a Pass.

3. Eighteen credit hours in courses beyond those required for the M.A. shall be mandatory. These courses are to be decided upon by each candidate in consultation with his/her Ph.D. Supervisory Committee.

While candidates will normally be free to choose graduate courses of interest to them, it will be a primary responsibility of their Committees to ensure that any serious deficiencies in their record of previous courses, graduate and undergraduate, are made good, particularly in the area of proposed thesis research.

4.a) The Ph.D. Comprehensive Examination in the fields of English Language and Literature consists of a written examination.

b) The written examination shall consist of three parts: a four-hour examination in the student's area of concentration and two three-hour examinations in two other areas. This examination shall take place before the end of the seventh semester in accordance with General Regulation H.2.

c) Candidates who fail one or more parts of the written examination may be re-examined in the respective area(s). This re-examination, and whether it be written or oral, is at the discretion of the examination committee. Candidates who fail the re-examination will be required to withdraw from the Ph.D. programme.

5. Reading knowledge of a second language shall be mandatory. Reading knowledge is defined as a minimum B grade in a second-year language course taken within the previous five years, or performance satisfactory to the department in an arranged reading proficiency test. A dictionary may be used in the test. Any mandatory language test must be passed before the student proceeds to the comprehensive examination.

The second language will normally be French. In exceptional circumstances, and on the recommendation of a Supervisory Committee, a language other than French may be substituted. Furthermore, a Supervisory Committee may require a demonstrated reading knowledge of an additional language other than French (or the substitute language) if deemed necessary for the student's research interests.

COURSES

A selection of the following graduate courses will be offered to meet the requirements of candidates, as far as the resources of the Department will allow.

NOTES: 1) Since it is impossible to list in detail the many topics that may from time to time be offered, the titles below refer only to the major periods and general subject areas in which specific courses may be available. The content and approach in specific courses will vary according to the research interests of students and faculty involved in the course. Students should consult the Department's annual Graduate Student Guide (or the Graduate Co-ordinator) for detailed descriptions of specific course offerings.

The comprehensive examination will focus upon three research subject areas which shall be chosen by the student, in consultation with the Supervisory Committee, no later than the end of the first semester of the student's programme. These subject areas will be selected from the following fields:

Cultural Geography Geomorphology
Historical Geography Biogeography
Population Geography Palaeoenvironmental Studies
Urban Geography Quaternary Studies
Economic Geography Resources
Transportation Geography Remote Sensing
Fisheries Geography Geographical Information Systems
Climatology Techniques and Methods of Geographical Research
Cartography

The examination will be on aspects of the chosen subject areas that are broadly relevant to the student's research interests and which will be communicated to the student no later than the end of the first semester of the student's programme. The examination will consist of two parts, the first of which will be written and the second oral. The written part will consist of four papers addressing questions from the three subject areas, as determined by the Examination Committee. A period of two weeks will be allotted to complete this part.

The oral part of the examination will focus upon the same subject areas selected for the written component. The oral examination will occur not more than two weeks after the written papers have been completed.

The Examination Committee for both parts of the comprehensive examination shall consist of five voting members, including the Head of Department (or delegate) who shall chair the Committee, the candidate's Supervisor, and three other members. If the Head of the Department is also a member of the Supervisory Committee, an additional representative of the Department shall be appointed to chair the Examination Committee.

6. Following successful completion of the comprehensive examination, a written research proposal shall be completed, with the approval of the Supervisory Committee, no later than the last day of classes of the fourth semester following admission to the programme. This proposal must be approved before the student continues work on the thesis. Failure to secure approval by this time, will, without good cause, result in the student being required to withdraw from the programme. The student is required to present a seminar on his/her research to the Geography Department during the course of his/her programme.

7. Successful completion of the Ph.D. programme will require examination of the completed thesis and an oral defense of the thesis, as prescribed in the General Regulations governing the School of Graduate Studies (Section J.4). Final approval of the thesis shall be the responsibility of the School of Graduate Studies.

B. Watson

The degrees of Master of Applied Statistics, Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy are offered in Mathematics and Statistics. The Masters' degrees are offered by full-time or part-time studies.

DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY

The following regulations should be read in conjunction with the General University Regulations.

Admission to the Ph.D. programme is limited and competitive. Of all the requirements listed in the regulations, the writing of the doctoral thesis is the most important, and a candidate may complete all other requirements satisfactorily without qualifying for the degree.

The real test is to show ability to attack and solve a significant mathematical or statistical problem independently and in an original manner for the thesis. The doctoral thesis must definitely advance the subject which it treats.

SPECIFIC REGULATIONS FOR THE PH.D. IN MATHEMATICS

1. The Department requires applicants who do not already hold an appropriate Master's degree (or equivalent) to register for the M.Sc. rather than for the Ph.D. directly.

2. The candidate shall satisfactorily complete at least six credit hours in graduate courses. The Supervisory Committee may require the student to take additional courses.

3. The Comprehensive Examination shall consist of two parts, called hereafter "qualifying review" and "intermediate review", and is subject to the following regulations. (More detailed information concerning the content of these examinations may be obtained from the Department).

a) The qualifying review consists of one or more examinations, written or oral or both, and is to take place as soon as the Supervisory Committee deems appropriate, but not later than at the end of the candidate's first year in the doctoral programme. Its main purpose is to ensure that the candidate has a sufficiently broad general knowledge of Mathematics (especially Analysis, Algebra, and Topology) before beginning work on the thesis.

b) At a time to be determined by the Supervisory Committee, but not later than at the end of the candidate's second year in the doctoral programme, the candidate must take the intermediate review, also consisting of one or more examinations which may be written or oral or both. Its purpose is to ensure that the candidate has sufficient specialized knowledge in the area of the proposed research work and related areas.

c) The examinations associated with both the qualifying review and the intermediate review are general, and are not based on any particular course.

d) Successful completion of both the qualifying and intermediate reviews constitutes successful completion of the Comprehensive Examination in the sense of General Regulation H.

4.a) Candidates will be required to possess a reading knowledge of one of the following languages as specified by the Supervisory Committee in consultation with the candidate: French, German, or Russian.

b) In addition, when the Supervisory Committee deems it necessary, a working knowledge of a further language may be required.

SPECIFIC REGULATIONS FOR THE PH.D. IN STATISTICS

1. Successful completion of a M.A.S. or M.Sc. programme or the equivalent is a prerequisite for entry into a Ph.D. programme.

2. The candidate shall complete satisfactorily a minimum of six credit hours in graduate courses other than those courses required for a M.A.S./M.Sc. Candidates may be required by the Supervisory Committee to take additional programme courses.

3. The Comprehensive Examination will be both written and oral, and will take place as soon as the Supervisory Committee deems appropriate, but not later than at the end of the candidate's first year in the doctoral programme. The purpose of the comprehensive examination is to ensure that the candidate has a sufficiently broad general knowledge of statistics before beginning work on the thesis. Specific details can be obtained from the Department.

4. At the time to be determined by the Supervisory Committee, a candidate will be required to pass a departmental oral examination. This examination will be based on the content of his or her thesis, but may include questions of a general nature relating to his or her field of specialization.

5. Each candidate will be required to present at least one paper at a graduate seminar on a topic to be approved by his or her Supervisor.

6.a) Candidates will be required to possess a reading knowledge of one of the following languages as specified by the Supervisory Committee in consultation with the candidate: French, German, or Russian.

b) In addition, when the Supervisory Committee deems it necessary, a working knowledge of a further language may be required.

Members of the department carry out research in several areas of experimental and theoretical physics, including atomic and molecular physics, condensed matter physics, physical oceanography, theoretical geophysics and applied nuclear physics. In atomic and molecular physics, there are experimental programmes in collision-induced infrared absorption spectroscopy, electron emission spectroscopy of simple molecules, molecular ions and free radicals, laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy, and Raman spectroscopy, and theoretical work on atomic and molecular collisions. The work in condensed matter physics includes experimental programmes in solid state nuclear magnetic resonance on systems of biophysical interest, Raman spectroscopy of lipid bilayers and membranes, studies of phase transitions using Brillouin and Raman spectroscopy, studies of instabilities and pattern formation in simple fluid dynamical systems, and spectroscopic studies of molecular crystals. Theoretical condensed matter physics research involves studies of magnetism, superconductivity, and the statistical mechanics of polymers and lipid bilayers. The Physical Oceanography group carries out field and laboratory research on several projects which take advantage of Newfoundland's unique oceanographic environment, using acoustic and other remote sensing techniques. These include studies of circulation on the Newfoundland and Labrador shelves, Labrador current dynamics, fjord dynamics, submarine canyons and sediment transport dynamics in the nearshore zone and on the shelf. Theoretical oceanographic studies involve the modelling of ocean circulation, gravity wave phenomena and other aspects of ocean dynamics. Research in theoretical geophysics is concentrated on whole-Earth dynamics, with special emphasis on the physics of the liquid core (the Earth's "third ocean") as inferred from its wave spectrum and the associated momentum transfer to the deformable solid parts of the Earth. In nuclear physics, research is done on the atmospheric concentrations of radioactive elements and on dosimetry for medical applications.

c) The Ph.D. Comprehensive in Social Work will consist of a written examination on two essay questions, developed by the Examination Committee in the subdiscipline of the student's programme (see General Regulation H.2.c.). One question will concern applying critical thinking to social work theory within the context of the profession's history. The second question will concern a consideration of either the candidate's subdiscipline of social work practice or social work education within the context of theory, research, and social development.

d) The Ph.D. examination procedure shall be initiated by the candidate's Supervisor who will notify, in writing, the Director (School of Social Work) of the candidate's readiness. The candidate's Examination Committee will then be appointed according to section 3.b (above). The date of the meeting to determine the essay questions and the scheduling of the written examination will be determined by the Dean of Graduate Studies. The candidate will receive a written notice of this meeting and of the scheduled date for the examination. During the written examination, candidates will be given three hours to respond to each question.

e) The Examination Committee shall meet in camera to arrive at its conclusions. Evaluation of the candidate's response to questions will be based on the following criteria:

i. demonstration of knowledge of social work theory, research, and issues relevant to the essay topic
ii. coherency of presentation (i.e., cogent argumentation, sufficient referencing of statements, clear writing style)

f) The Chair shall report the results of the Examination to the Dean of Graduate Studies. The report will consist of one of the following decisions:

i. the candidate has passed the comprehensive examination.

ii. the candidate should be permitted to attempt a second examination within six months of the first, according to General Regulation H. The Examination Committee may recommend that the candidate be re-examined orally or in writing. The student may state a preference for an oral or written re-examination.
iii. the candidate has failed the Comprehensive Examination and will be required to withdraw from the programme.

4. Ph.D. Thesis

a) A Supervisory Committee will be appointed for each student (see General Regulation I).

b) The candidate must submit a thesis proposal to the Supervisory Committee based on her/his own interest, and normally the proposal must be approved by the sixth semester of the programme. The proposal will be circulated to the Supervisory Committee for critical evaluation. The Chairperson of the Supervisory Committee will inform the candidate within one month of its acceptance, rejection, or acceptance with recommended changes.

c) If the proposal is not acceptable, the candidate will normally be permitted a second attempt. The revised proposal must be submitted within a semester. Failure to resubmit within this time period will lead to termination of the candidate's programme.

d) The thesis shall give evidence of the candidate's ability to carry out independent and original research, develop the necessary theoretical and methodological framework and analyses and present the findings in a scholarly manner.
