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 Graphic Design & Digital Media track prepares students to become participating members in an exciting and dynamic field. Course work enables students the opportunity to design projects that may include: visual identities, advertising design, packaging, posters, web sites, motion graphics and more. Graphic Design is a demanding course of study, and is appropriate for those who are conceptual thinkers, who are interested in solving problems and for the visually curious. Those who are drawn to contemporary style in all forms, while keeping an eye on the past, are ideal candidates for this line of study.

Note: This is a limited access Concentration within the Fine Arts Major. Applicants must complete the review process before taking major restricted classes. More information may be found in the GD & DM Limited Access section of the web site or by contacting the Art and Design department.

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.
