Degree: Bachelor of Fine Arts
Major: Fine Arts
Concentration: Sculpture
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.

Contemporary Sculpture is interdisciplinary in nature; materials and process follow concept. In this way, we teach our students to take their ideas from initial concept through fruition, emphasizing that the medium should be appropriate to the idea and vice versa. Through research and practice, students create work that is engaging and well-crafted. Technical skill and conceptual skill are integral elements of the sculpture educational experience at UNF. We seek students who are curious, hard-working and passionate about art. Students applying to graduate schools in the Arts, should complete the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) rather than the Bachelor of Arts (BA). Visit the Sculpture webpage and speak with Sculpture faculty for more information.

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).

  • Fine Arts students are encouraged to study a language through the Intermediate level (or demonstrate equivalent proficiency) and to undertake an international educational experience (Study Abroad). Visit the International Center's Study Abroad webpage for additional information.

  • Fine Arts students may take ART3707C Sculpture I as early as freshman year. ART 4710C Sculpture III may be repeated for a maximum of 9 credit hours. When taking Major Electives and Free Electives, faculty recommend completion of the following Art Electives: ART 4736C Sculpture: Enlivened Spaces, ART 3714C Sculpture: Casting, and additional credit in ART 4710C Sculpture III.

  • Independent study courses in any fine arts area require prior approval of the department chairperson.

  • Department of Art and Design first day attendance rule: any student who misses the first day without advanced notice to a department representative will be administratively dropped from the course.

  • 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.
