Concentration: Math/Science Option
Effective Term: Fall 2010
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 Middle School Mathematics/Science Education program is designed to prepare teachers to teach middle school students in two content areas. The track is intended for undergraduate students who wish to teach middle level mathematics and science. This model of two certification areas conforms to the certification patterns recommended by the National Middle School Association. The Middle School program provides preservice teachers with an appropriate knowledge base and needed experiences in curriculum, instruction, and evaluation of ten- to fourteen-year-old students. 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). Middle School Math/Science Education majors will satisfy General Education Math and Natural Science requirements 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 Middle School Math/Science 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.

  • Admission into the College of Education and Human Services requires a minimum of 60 semester hours or a state of Florida AA degree with a grade point average of 2.50 or better and passing scores on all four parts of the General Knowledge (GK) test by Term 5. Program admission requires a decision by a college administrator or faculty member. Students are not guaranteed admission into this program, and can not degree progress into Term 5 (61-75 hours) until admitted into this program. Find specific admission criteria for this program on your Degree Evaluation, college website, university catalog or consult your academic advisor. For more information visit the College of Education and Human Services Advising Office webpage.

  • A minimum grade of "C" is required in all course work.

  • Students requiring preparation for MAC 2311 Calculus I take MAC 1147 Precalculus or MAC1105 College Algebra and MAC1114 Trigonometry. MAC1147 or MAC1105 and MAC1114 will fulfill the four additional math credits required as a program prerequisite.

  • Students must maintain a minimum GPA of a 2.50 or better for each semester they are enrolled in a teacher education program.

  • A level 2 background check (including fingerprints) done and verified by the school district in which the field/clinical experiences will be completed is required prior to the assignment of any student to a field/clinical experience. Students not cleared by the school district will not be permitted access to schools.

  • All course work including successful completion of Field Labs I and II are prerequisites for Student Internship (Term 8). Courses with field lab requirements must be completed during fall and spring terms.

  • Passing the Professional Education and Subject Area exams of the Florida Teachers Certification Exam (FTCE) is required for completion of internship and graduation.

  • A minimum of 120 hours (48 hours at the upper 3000/4000 level) is required for the bachelor's degree. The Middle School Education major requires 122 hours. Students must complete at least 25 percent of the required degree credit hours in residence at UNF.
