College: Arts and Sciences
Degree: Bachelor of Arts
Major: English
Effective Term: Fall 2013
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.

No human community exists without language, and nowhere is language used more artfully, deliberately, and meaningfully than in literature. The English Department's mission is grounded in the conviction that a knowledge of literature and language and a mastery of interpretive skills are absolutely integral to a liberal arts education. The department's goal is to make a significant and indeed life-long contribution to the intellectual growth of each of its students. Visit the Department of English webpage for additional 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. 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). English majors will satisfy General Education English requirements with program prerequisites.

  • The Department of English recommends additional literature, history, philosophy, psychology, anthropology and film analysis and appreciation courses to satisfy Free Electives.

  • English majors must select two courses in Literary Interpretation, Criticism and/or Theory and two courses from either Writing Studies or Literature in/as Performance. See personalized Degree Evaluation after admitted to the university, or university catalog for course options.

  • English majors must select an additional five 3000/4000 level Department of English courses, for a total of 30 semester hours of Major Requirements. Major Requirement LIT4934 Senior Seminar is recommended in the student's final semester.

Foreign cultures contain (FC) in the course title. A complete list of foreign culture courses can be found in the Arts & Sciences Advising Office.

  • A minor is required for this degree. The minor must be selected from the list of approved minors, including those outside the college of the major. See a list of minors in the undergraduate catalog. Minors are generally completed during the last 60 hrs of your program. Your minor may require prerequisites, so choosing a minor early is beneficial. See your academic advisor to declare a minor. Double majors are exempt from a minor.

  • A minimum of 120 hours (48 hours at the upper 3000/4000 level) is required for the bachelor's degree.
