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.

In the Ceramics program both handbuilding and wheelthrowing techniques are taught. To help the student gain success with the medium a broad knowledge of technical skill, aesthetic awareness and craftsmanship are addressed. Focus is given to the principles and elements of design and the design process. Students are introduced to as many facets of the ceramic medium as possible through lectures, visiting artists, assignments, personal research, and individual exploration. Advanced ceramic students and ceramic majors are encourages to explore new ideas as they work towards developing a personal body of work. Students participate in the “Empty Bowls” Community Based Transformational learning opportunity and are encouraged to participate in the University Potters’ Guild. Visit the Ceramics webpage for more information. Click on the Students tab of the Career Services webpage for major exploration information.

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. Fine Arts majors will satisfy 3 semester hours of General Education Humanities (Non Applied Fine Art) with Program Prerequisites. An Associate in Arts (AA) degree from a Florida public university, state college or community college satisfies UNF general education and Gordon Rule requirements. General Education Math selection for First Time in College (FTIC) students is contingent upon Math Placement exam results, SAT/ACT math scores, the student’s major and/or credit received through accelerated mechanisms (Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, Dual Enrollment, etc). All freshmen and sophomores (students with 0-59 credit hours) should consult their academic advisor in the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) or the UNF Honors Program.

  • Fine Arts students are encouraged to undertake an international educational experience (Study Abroad). Visit the International Center's Study Abroad webpage for additional information.
