Summary of the Changes:On 23 September 1971, the first NROTC unit in the State of Florida was formally dedicated during ceremonies at Jacksonville University. The Jacksonville NROTC unit has commissioned Navy Ensigns and Marine Corps Second Lieutenants for service in a wide variety of warfare disciplines, including surface warfare, submarine warfare, naval aviation, nursing, nuclear power and Marine Corps occupational specialties.
Over the years, the NROTC unit at Jacksonville University has accepted the University of North Florida students into the program. It is our goal now to formally submit the NROTC program to the University of North Florida so that the program will be an accredited program in both Jacksonville University and the University of North Florida.
The UNF Naval Science Minor will offer our students the opportunity to apply the NROTC course work to an actual minor in naval science and not have the course work only count as electives. With a nationally accredited curriculum and a teaching faculty hired and funded by the United States Navy, the addition of a minor will ensure the highest quality of learning without expense to the university. Adding this Naval Science Minor to the University of North Florida curriculum would further demonstrate UNF's already outstanding commitment to the men and women of the United States Armed Forces.
Within this minor students may choose either a U.S. Navy (24 semester hours) or U.S. Marine option
