The Osprey Map provides a term-by-term sample schedule for each undergraduate academic program at the University of North Florida. It is designed to guide students in the selection of courses each term. The "Mile Marker" courses in the right-hand column are those courses that should be completed before or by the end of that term. Following the sample schedule, and completing the mile marker courses at the appropriate point of your undergraduate career, will facilitate graduation in four years. The term-by-term model assumes full-time enrollment. For students enrolled part-time, the sample schedule and mile markers should be followed based on the number of credits completed. The Osprey Map should be used in consultation with an academic advisor.

UNF offers a comprehensive degree program in Piano Performance and Pedagogy to prepare students to teach piano to a wide variety of levels in diverse settings or to continue further study at the graduate level. The Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance and Pedagogy maintains a strong performance curriculum in addition to the core music curriculum (music theory, aural theory, music history), liberal arts coursework, and coursework in piano pedagogy. For additional information visit the College of Arts and Sciences Advising Office webpage.

Career Planning
Engaging in career planning activities is significant to student success. UNF offers customized career centers to deliver targeted programs, events, services and resources. First-Year students should visit the Career Services webpage and Sophomore or higher level students with a declared COAS major should visit the College of Arts and Sciences Career Success Center.

Students should refer to their personalized Degree Evaluation provided by an academic advisor and to other university resources for additional university and college-specific policies. Visit the undergraduate university catalog for more information.

Summer terms may be utilized to facilitate graduation in four years.

  • Visit the university catalog for a list of General Education requirements. An Associate in Arts (AA) degree from a Florida public university, state college or community college satisfies UNF general education and Gordon Rule requirements. Math selection for First Time in College (FTIC) students is contingent upon Math Placement exam results, the student’s major and credit received through accelerated mechanisms (Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, Dual Enrollment, etc).

  • Visit the School of Music webpage for a complete list of Music prerequisites.

  • Program Admission requires a decision by a college administrator or faculty member. Applicants are not guaranteed admission into this limited access program. Find admission criteria for this program on the School of Music website or university catalog. Admission into the Music Performance major requires a successful performance audition on an appropriate instrument or voice. A piano proficiency exam is required. Students without piano proficiency must complete four semesters of Class Piano. A Music Theory proficiency exam is also required.

  • All music majors are required to complete Senior Recital in applied music in their final semester. Music courses are sequential. Required Music courses are offered Fall and Spring Terms only.

  • All music students are required to enroll in a major ensemble for every semester in residence. Placement in selective ensembles is determined by competitive audition.

  • Students must notify the School of Music 24 hours in advance if the first day of class will be missed. Failure to do so may forfeit the student's place in that class.

  • A minimum grade of "C" is required in all academic course work and minimum grade of "B" in applied music areas for the Bachelor of Music (BM). Review the Student Probation Policy and the Sophomore Review policy located in the School of Music Student Handbook.
