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.

UNF offers a comprehensive degree program in Piano Pedagogy to prepare students to teach piano to a wide variety of levels in diverse settings or to continue further study at the graduate level. The Bachelor of Music in Piano Pedagogy maintains a strong performance curriculum in addition to the core music curriculum (music theory, aural theory, music history), liberal arts coursework, and eight semesters of work in piano pedagogy. 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 Performance majors will satisfy 3 semester hours of General Education Humanities with Program Prerequisite MUT 1111 Theory I or MUH3211 Music History I. MUH2501 World Music will satisfy 3 semester hours of Social Sciences B (Cultural Diversity) credit for General Education Requirements.

  • 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.

  • 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 college website, university catalog or consult the Department of Music. Admission into the Music Performance 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.

  • 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. Students must complete two of the following courses to satisfy the Advanced Music Theory requirement: MUT 4311 Orchestration; MUT 4421 18th Century Counterpoint; OR MUT 4626 20th Century Music.

  • 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. Visit the Ensembles webpage for more information.

  • 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.

  • 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.
