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 study of history involves an understanding and appreciation of our cultural heritage, whether ancient or modern, eastern or western, humanistic or technological. It seeks to appreciate the values of our global civilization in its many parts. The study of history stresses the importance of the historical perspective for understanding contemporary social, political, technological, and economic problems. Visit the Department of History webpage for additional information. Potential and current majors are encouraged to speak with Department of History faculty regarding career exploration in this field and to visit the Career Services website. 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.
