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 Secondary Social Studies Education program is designed to prepare teachers of social studies, history, economics, government, sociology, and/or psychology in grades 6 - 12. The culminating experience in the program is participation in a series of apprentice-like teaching experiences: two pre-internships and a semester-long internship, which allow for a synthesis of the program's coursework and the emergence of a highly trained secondary social science teacher who can effectively disseminate knowledge and skills in stimulating ways and encourage competent and responsible citizen participation. The goals, objectives, and experiences incorporated into the program reflect the current state of professional knowledge in the field at the state and national level. Click on the Students tab of the Career Services webpage for major exploration and employment information.

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.

  • 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. 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). Social Studies Education majors will satisfy 3 semester hours of General Education Social Science with Program Prerequisites. Education majors must complete all General Education course work with a grade of C or higher. A grade of D is acceptable in some General Education course work to meet university requirements, however D grades are not acceptable for Education majors. Visit the Department of Foundation and Secondary Education webpage for faculty contact names, additional information and for a complete list of Social Studies Education prerequisites. Students are encouraged to speak with College of Education faculty directly regarding questions about the teaching profession. All freshmen and sophomores (students with 0-59 credit hours) must also consult their academic advisor in the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) or the UNF Honors Program.
