College: Education and Human Services
Degree: Bachelor of Arts in Education
Major: Deaf Education
Effective Term: Fall 2018
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.

The Deaf Education major is a comprehensive program approved by the FLDOE and undergoing reaccreditation by the Council on the Education of the Deaf (CED). The UNF Deaf Education program prepares teacher candidates to be prepared for the diverse nature of students who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH). The program's philosophy is to respect and address diversity within the field by ensuring that all graduates are well-prepared and equipped for the challenges of educating all students with hearing loss. Visit the Deaf Education Program webpage for additional information.

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 and Exploratory students should visit the Career Services webpage and Sophomore or higher level students with a declared COEHS major should visit the Office of Academic Support and Information Services (OASIS).

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.
