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 English Education program strives to prepare teacher candidates to become practitioners in diverse and dynamic school settings. The skills and knowledge required for these candidates to function effectively in such an environment include both subject matter content and teaching strategies. The first is acquired primarily through course work completed in the College of Arts and Sciences; the second is incorporated into the education component of the program. Congruent with professional standards and expectations, this program requires that graduates demonstrate knowledge of a broad range of language skills which include: understanding of the history and structure of English; familiarity with a range of literary genres, styles, and devices, as well as selections representing the cultural diversity of our world; the ability to communicate effectively orally and in writing; awareness of the many purposes for which one uses speaking, writing, reading, and listening; and an appreciation of the impact of nonverbal communication modes on our culture. Visit the Department of Foundation and Secondary Education webpage for additional information and for a complete list of English Education prerequisites.

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.
