2005-06 Undergraduate Catalog

Dear UF Students and Prospective Students,

Welcome to the University of Florida!

As a major international research institution, UF offers undergraduates a wealth of opportunities on campus and beyond. I challenge you to get involved with undergraduate research, participate in a program abroad or join one of our hundreds and hundreds of student clubs and activities.

UF is dedicated to excellence in all that it does. I am continuously impressed with the quality of student experiences in and out of the classroom - whether traveling to India to conduct original research in our University Scholars Program, founding an award-winning organization to support the human rights campaign in Darfur, obtaining an internship at the White House or engaging in research in a faculty lab in the Brain Institute.

The Undergraduate Catalog will provide the tools for you to explore the wide variety of undergraduate majors and minors, as well as to sample the incredible selection of courses we offer. Please acquaint yourself with the academic policies and regulations you will need to know in order to progress smoothly through UF.

My very best wishes for your success. We have the highest expectations for our students. It will be your responsibility to take the best advantage of all we have to offer.
