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 Photography program is designed for the serious student of art who is interested in exploring the expressive potential of photography. Students are challenged to pursue their own direction through a curriculum that emphasizes experimentation and encompasses a wide range of media and approaches including: traditional black and white photography, historical processes, studio practice focused upon the aesthetics of portraiture and fashion, digital imaging, as well as history and criticism. Visit the Photography webpage for more information. Click on the Students tab of the Career Services webpage for major exploration information.

Students should refer to their personalized Degree Evaluation provided by an 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. Fine Arts majors will satisfy 3 semester hours of General Education Humanities (Non Applied Fine Art) with Program Prerequisites. 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).

  • 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.

  • Photography majors are required to purchase equipment and materials. Visit the Required Materials link on the Photography webpage for details.

  • Independent study courses in any fine arts area require approval of the department chairperson.

  • Department of Art and Design first day attendance rule: any student absent the first day without advanced notice to a department representative, will be administratively dropped from the course.

  • 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.
