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.

Exercise Scientists are health care professionals that utilize knowledge of the human body’s adaptive responses to exercise to address an individual’s health, fitness, or performance goals. Exercise Science students who wish to continue their academic studies will benefit from a well rounded curriculum designed to prepare them for admission into graduate programs in Exercise Physiology or other Health Care professions. Exercise Science is often cited as the preferred undergraduate program for students interested in the advanced degree of Physical Therapy. Other graduate programs that are of interest to Exercise Science students are: Occupational Therapy, Chiropractics, Medicine, Physicians Assistant, Sports Psychology, and Pharmacy. Exercise Science students who seek employment after receiving the undergraduate degree are successful in 4 distinct areas of employment: (1) Clinical Exercise Physiology: health care based positions that incorporate exercise testing, prescription, and supervision for a wide spectrum of patients such as cardiac rehabilitation, elderly care, and weight management. (2) Fitness/Recreation field: positions in personal training, fitness instruction, corporate wellness, wellness coach, and recreation. (3) Human Performance: strength coach, performance coach, and athletic exercise testing and (4) Other Related fields: medical supply reps (pacemakers, artificial joints, medical instruments) and pharmaceutical representatives. 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 Exercise Science webpage for a complete list of prerequisites. Exercise Science 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.

  • Students must earn additional Free Elective credit if needed to satisfy the university minimum 120 total semester hours for graduation. Students considering graduate or professional school admission after earning their BSH should utilize Free Elective hours by completing the required prerequisites for graduate/professional school.

  • UNF currently admits one group of Exercise Science students every fall term. Visit the Exercise Science webpage for current application deadline and admission criteria. The Exercise Science program is a limited access program. In addition to meeting the university admission criteria, applicants must be junior status (earned a minimum of 60 semester hours). 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. See the Exercise Science webpage for the deadline for receipt of transcripts from other institutions.

  • The following non-sequenced courses may be completed any term that the course is available, after admission into the Exercise Science program: HSC3555 Human Diseases (offered fall, spring and summer terms. Required prerequisites for HSC3555 include BSC2085C and BSC2086C). HUN4414 Sports Nutrition (offered fall and spring terms). PET3312C Biomechanics (offered summer and fall terms. Required prerequisites for PET3312C are BSC2085C and BSC2086C.) PET4625 Research in Sports Medicine (offered fall and spring terms). The 9 semester hours of Free Electives (any Level/Prefix) listed in Summer 3, Term 7 and Term 8 may also be completed in any term. Students planning to apply for UNF's Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT), should complete DPT prerequisites to satisfy the 9 semester hours of Free Electives requirement. Visit the DPT webpage for prerequisite information.
