College: Arts and Sciences
Degree: Bachelor of Music
Major: Music Jazz Studies
Effective Term: Fall 2008
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 Music Jazz Studies Major prepares students for a life in music. Graduates hold positions in all aspects of the music industry, including performing in the nation's top professional and military ensembles, composing and arranging for the industry's leading artists, touring internationally, and serving as leading pedagogues in music education. Click on the Students tab of the Career Services webpage for major exploration and employment information. For additional information visit the College of Arts and Sciences Advising Office webpage.

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). Music Jazz Studies majors will satisfy 3 semester hours of General Education Humanities (Non-Applied Fine Art) with required Program Prerequisite MUT 1111 Theory I or MUH3211 Music History I.

  • Visit the Department of Music webpage for a complete list of Music prerequisites. 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.

  • Admission into the Jazz Studies major requires a successful performance audition on an appropriate instrument or voice. A piano proficiency exam is required. Students without piano proficiency must complete four semesters of Class Piano. A Music Theory proficiency exam is also required. Program Admission requires a decision by a college administrator or faculty member. Applicants are not guaranteed admission into this limited access program. Find admission criteria for this program on the department website, university catalog or consult the Department of Music.

  • Students must notify the Department of Music 24 hours in advance if the first day of class will be missed. Failure to do so may forfeit the student's place in that class.

  • All music students are required to enroll in a major ensemble for every semester in residence. Placement in selective ensembles is determined by competitive audition.

  • All music majors are required to complete Senior Recital in applied music in their final semester. Music courses are sequential. Required Music courses are offered Fall and Spring Terms only.

  • A minimum grade of "C" is required in all academic course work and minimum grade of "B" in applied music areas for the Bachelor of Music (BM). Review the Student Probation Policy and the Sophomore Review Policy located in the Department of Music Student Handbook.

  • A minimum of 120 hours (48 hours at the upper 3000/4000 level) is required for the bachelor's degree. Students may need to complete Free Elective credit at the upper level (3000/4000) to satisfy the minimum 48 semester hours of upper level hours for graduation.
