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 BSH in Community Health combines a broad spectrum of liberal arts, sciences, social sciences and health science to prepare undergraduate students in the field of health education and health promotion. Students gain experience and skills in promoting healthy behaviors and preventing both chronic and infectious diseases and injury, while learning the theories and research methods necessary for the development of this field. Students will complete courses in nutrition, sexuality education, substance abuse and violence prevention, exercise science, fitness and aging. The goal of the Community Health program is to provide students with the education needed for entry-level community health positions and for graduate studies. Of major concern to any society is the health and well-being of its citizens. Although the human lifespan has increased, chronic and degenerative diseases, and continuing and emerging infectious disease and injuries are urgent problems that must be addressed. Enhancement of health at both the individual and community levels is the major focus of this program. At the completion of this degree program, students are eligible to take the national examination for certification in health education (CHES). The Community Health curriculum includes a required Minor in Health Education. 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 and procedures. 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). Visit the Community Health webpage for a complete list of prerequisites. Community Health students will satisfy the six semester hours of General Education Mathematics, three of the six semester hours of Social Science, and six semester hours of Natural Science with required Program 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. Upper division transfer students (60 hours or more) should consult an advisor in the Brooks College of Health Advising Office.

  • Students must earn additional Free Elective credit if needed to satisfy the university minimum 120 total semester hours for graduation.

  • The Community Health program includes an internship that allows students the opportunity to apply their skills and knowledge in a health education/health promotion setting. Faculty require completion of Community Health Internship (HSC 4814) in the student's last academic term. Students may petition to take a maximum of 6 semester hours of Health Science Electives (HSC/HSA prefixes) at the 3000/4000 level with internship. All university general education, program prerequisite/requisite, core, major and minor courses must be completed with a "C" grade or better prior to internship. A minimum 2.0 GPA is required prior to internship.
