College: Arts and Sciences
Degree: Bachelor of Arts
Major: Psychology
Effective Term: Fall 2021
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.

Psychology may be defined as the scientific study of the behavior of humans and animals. The goal of the Department of Psychology is to help students understand the history, methods, and philosophy of the differing approaches to the study of behavior. The Bachelor of Arts degree (BA) in Psychology is distinguished by its liberal arts emphasis. Students who complete the BA satisfy the degree requirements by taking courses that advance their study of human and animal behavior. Students will acquire linguistic competency in a second language, engage in problem-solving, and critical thinking. Visit the Psychology Department webpage for additional information. Students should also consult a Psychology Department faculty member for questions related to the major and continuing their education in the field of psychology. Free Electives should be selected within the student's area of interest, in consultation with a psychology department faculty member.

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 students should visit the Career Services webpage and Sophomore or higher level students with a declared COAS major should visit the College of Arts and Sciences Career Success Center.

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. 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). If selecting a Philosophy course for General Education, students are strongly encouraged to take PHI 2100 Critical Thinking: Art of Reason.

  • All BA students in the College of Arts and Sciences are required to complete the foreign language or foreign culture requirement with grades of C or higher.

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

  • 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.

  • No more than 3 semester hours in PSY4906 Directed Individual Study, PSY3911 Supervised Research, PSY4904 Honors Research or PSY4945 Practicum in Applied Psychology may be used as Major Elective hours. Additional hours in these courses may be taken as Free Electives.

  • 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) and 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. Students may need to complete Free Elective credit at the upper level (3000/4000) to satisfy the minimum 48 semester hours of upper level hours for graduation.
