College: Computing, Engrg, and Const
Degree: Bachelor of Science
Major: Computing & Info Sciences
Concentration: Information Science
Effective Term: Fall 2019
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 Information Science concentration has an interdisciplinary flavor in that a minor is required for fulfilling the program requirements where students study the development of computer software applications to meet the needs of a variety of organizations. The curriculum focuses on the development of software systems, including application programming, database design, Internet programming technologies, data analytics, and systems analysis and design. Students are required to participate in a two-semester capstone project where they develop software systems for community partners. Web developer, programmer, and business analyst are typical titles for the first job of the program graduates.

Career Planning
Engaging in career planning activities is significant to student success. UNF offers customized career centers to deliver targeted programs, events, services and resources. First-Year and Exploratory students should visit the Career Services webpage and Sophomore or higher level students with a declared CCEC major should visit the CCEC Career Development Center.

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. Math selection for First Time in College (FTIC) students is contingent upon Math Placement exam results, the student’s major and credit received through accelerated mechanisms (Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, Dual Enrollment, etc).

  • Visit the School of Computing home page and consult an academic advisor in the School of Computing Advising Office for additional information.

  • Students must adhere to the School of Computing's Student Attendance Policy.

  • A Minor is required for this major. Minors are described in the UNF catalog under the appropriate college. Computing and Business Administration Students are not allowed minors for the Information Science program. Consult an academic advisor regarding adding a Minor.

  • A spoken presentation is a graduation requirement for the Information Systems program, and must be completed while enrolled in an upper-level School of Computing course. Most students choose to complete the spoken presentation in CIS3253 Legal and Ethical Issues in Computing. Spoken presentations are evaluated by the faculty member administering the course.

  • School of Computing Satisfactory Progress Policy: The School of Computing enforces the "one repeat" rule for all prerequisite and core courses offered by the School for its major programs. Students who do not successfully complete a prerequisite or core requirement for a School of Computing course on the first attempt (i.e., earn a grade of D, F, W, WP or WF) will be granted one chance to repeat the course. Students who do not successfully complete a prerequisite or core requirement within two attempts will not be permitted to register for courses offered by the School in future semesters. This stipulation applies whether or not the student has declared a major in a School of Computing program.

  • Civic Literacy Requirement: Prior to graduation from a Florida state university, students must demonstrate competency in civic literacy through successful completion of a civic literacy course (AMH 2020 or POS 2041) or by achieving a passing score on an assessment. Consult an academic advisor, the university catalog and visit the Civic Literacy webpage for additional information.

  • The B.S. in Information Systems requires 120 total semester hours, including 54 upper-level (3000/4000) hours.

The Osprey Map is not a contract between the University of North Florida and the student. It should be used as a general guide for the purpose of meeting requirements and constructing course schedules. The Map may be altered periodically to meet the objectives of the academic program or the university.
