College: Arts and Sciences
Degree: Bachelor of Arts
Major: English
Concentration: Accelerated BA to MA program
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.

No human community exists without language, and nowhere is language used more artfully, deliberately, and meaningfully than in literature. The English Department's mission is grounded in the conviction that a knowledge of literature and language and a mastery of interpretive skills are absolutely integral to a liberal arts education. The department's goal is to make a significant and indeed life-long contribution to the intellectual growth of each of its students. Students can apply for the Accelerated BA to MA Concentration of the English major after earning 21 credit hours of English Major requirements. Students must earn a 3.5 GPA in all major requirements to qualify for admission to the Accelerated BA to MA Concentration. No GRE score is required. Contact the Academic Advisor for the English major or the Graduate Program Coordinator for more information.

Visit the Department of English webpage for additional 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.

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

  • 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.
