College: Arts and Sciences
Degree: Bachelor of Science
Major: Behavioral Neuroscience
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 B.S. in Behavioral Neuroscience is available for students interested in studying the biological basis of human behavior. The interdisciplinary curriculum focuses on the brain circuitry and other biological factors underlying normal and abnormal human development, cognition, perception, social interaction, mental health, and drug use. Visit the Psychology Department 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 COAS major should visit the College of Arts and Sciences Career Success Center.

Students should refer to their personalized Degree Evaluation provided by an 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).

  • Student must select at least two required Experimental Psychology or Biology Lab Courses. Completion of additional Experimental Psychology or Biology Lab courses may count toward Major Electives. See Degree Evaluation or the university catalog for course options.

  • PSB4930 Special Topics in Behavioral Neuroscience may be repeated for up to nine credit hours. PSB4930 is offered in the spring term only.

  • Students must complete at least 12 credit hours of Major Electives from at least two of three disciplines: Psychology, Biology or Philosophy. No more than one Philosophy course will count toward the degree unless taken as Free Electives.

  • Students planning to attend Medical School should visit the Premedical Professions Program webpage for important information and to communicate with the Premedical advisor.

  • Visit the Biology Department Course Matrix for a listing of when required Biology courses are offered. See the university catalog for prerequisites to individual courses.

  • A minimum of nine upper level (3000-4000 level) Free Elective credit hours are required.

  • Civic Literacy Requirement: Prior to graduation from a Florida state university, students must demonstrate competency in civic literacy through successful completion of a civic literacy course (AMH 2020 or POS 2041) or by achieving a passing score on an assessment. Consult an academic advisor, the university catalog and visit the Civic Literacy webpage for additional information.

  • A minimum of 120 hours (48 hours at the upper 3000/4000 level) is required for the bachelor's degree. For additional information visit the College of Arts and Sciences Advising Office webpage.

The Osprey Map is not a contract between the University of North Florida and the student. It should be used as a general guide for the purpose of meeting requirements and constructing course schedules. The Map may be altered periodically to meet the objectives of the academic program or the university.
