College: Education and Human Services
Degree: Bachelor of Arts in Education
Major: Elementary Education
Concentration: Elementary Education (K-6)
Effective Term: Fall 2020
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 BAE in Elementary Education (K-6) prepares future educators by providing a broad foundation of observable and measurable competencies that contribute to their personal and professional growth. These competencies should enable the educators to assist learners to realize their full potential in ways which are meaningful and satisfying to the learners and which lead them to effective participation as members of society.

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 COEHS major should visit the Office of Academic Support and Information Services (OASIS) Career Services webpage.

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). Elementary Education majors are strongly encouraged to take MGF 1113 Math for Teachers I. General Education course work must be completed with a grade of C or higher. Visit the Elementary Education Tab on the Teaching, Learning, and Curriculum: Undergraduate Programs webpage for a complete list of prerequisites. Students are encouraged to speak with College of Education faculty directly regarding questions about the teaching profession.

  • Admission into the College of Education and Human Services requires a minimum of 60 semester hours or a state of Florida AA degree with a grade point average of 2.50 or better and passing scores on all four parts of the General Knowledge (GK) test by Term 5. Program admission requires a decision by a college administrator or faculty. Students are not guaranteed admission into this program, and can not continue taking courses in 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. For more information visit the Office of Academic Support and Information Services (OASIS) webpage.

  • A minimum grade of "C" is required in all course work.

  • When selecting Free Electives and General Education, highly recommended courses to prepare for the Florida Teacher Certification Exam (FTCE) include: American History (AMH2020), American Federal Government (POS2041) and World History I and II (WOH1012 and WOH1022). When selecting science courses, faculty highly recommend: BSC1005/1005L Principles of Biology, CHM1025/1025L Introduction to Chemistry, ESC2000/2000L Earth Science and PHY1033 Discovering Physics (effective spring 2021 Discovering Physics course number is PHY1020/1020L).

  • Additional strongly recommended Free Electives include: EDG3373 Integrating the Arts in Elementary Formal and Informal Learning Environments and HSC3301 Health and Movement Methods for Elementary Teachers. Students should consult an advisor for any additional course recommendations.

  • Students must maintain a minimum GPA of a 2.50 or better for each semester they are enrolled in a teacher education program.

  • A level 2 background check (including fingerprints) done and verified by the school district in which the field/clinical experiences will be completed is required prior to the assignment of any student to a field/clinical experience. Students not cleared by the school district will not be permitted access to schools.

  • All courses are prerequisites for Student Internship (Term 8). Courses with field lab requirements are typically completed during fall and spring terms.

  • Passing the Professional Education and Subject Area exams of the Florida Teachers Certification Exam (FTCE) is required for completion of internship and graduation.

  • 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.

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