Music Performance: Classical Voice

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 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.

The Bachelor of Music in Music Performance is a four-year program intended for students who wish to become professional musicians or continue further study in music at the graduate level. The BM program consists of a core curriculum (music theory, aural theory, music history), applied study (lessons, ensembles, piano accompanying, senior recital) and a strong liberal arts foundation. For additional information visit the College of Arts and Sciences Advising Office webpage.

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 academic 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).
  • Visit the School of Music webpage for a complete list of Music prerequisites.
  • Program Admission requires a decision by a college administrator or faculty member. Applicants are not guaranteed admission into this limited access program. Find admission criteria for this program on the college website, university catalog or consult the School of Music. Admission into the Music Performance major requires a successful performance audition on an appropriate instrument or voice. A piano proficiency exam is required. Students without piano proficiency must complete four semesters of Class Piano. A Music Theory proficiency exam is also required.
