College: Arts and Sciences
Degree: Bachelor of Arts
Major: Spanish
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.

Spanish is used on a daily basis in Europe, Latin America and in almost every state of America. The study of Spanish language, Hispanophone cultures and literatures, therefore, not only allows entry into a community of speakers endowed with a rich and diverse heritage, but it also enhances employment opportunities in such fields as business, social work, the health professions, hotel management, travel and tourism, international law, communications, public administration, law enforcement, education and many more. Many Spanish majors pursue their passion for language, literature and culture at the graduate level. Visit the Languages, Literatures and Cultures webpage for additional information. Potential and current majors are encouraged to speak with Languages, Literatures and Cultures faculty regarding career exploration in this field and to visit the Career Services website.

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).

  • Students entering the university with previous course work/proficiency in the Spanish language should visit the Placement Guidelines webpage and the Placement and Retroactive Credit webpage. Students should consult an academic advisor and the Department Chairperson for Languages, Literatures and Cultures for more information.

  • Spanish majors must complete 15 credit hours of Major Requirements and 15 credit hours of Major Electives. Consult the university catalog or personalized Degree Evaluation for list of approved courses and prefixes.

  • Languages, Literatures and Cultures faculty recommend international education (study abroad) experiences as a way to accelerate completion of the degree. Visit the Study Abroad for Language Students and the UNF International Center's webpages for study abroad information.

  • 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.

  • 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. For additional information visit the College of Arts and Sciences Advising Office webpage.
