Core Seminars (15 credits)
Electives (6 credits)
Electives provide an opportunity for students to take exploratory courses outside of the discipline, or take other courses that support their academic priorities. These could include language courses, research methods, or art classes!
Disciplinary Focus (15 credits)
Disciplinary focus courses allow students to specialize in one area of interest or explore widely applicable topics. These credits are often used to complete a graduate certificate. Practically any graduate-level course at UF, with sufficient relationship to the student’s course of study, can be taken as a disciplinary focus.
Thesis or Project in Lieu of Thesis (6 credits)
The thesis credits are generally taken in the student’s last semesters, as built-in time to work on the thesis/project. The thesis/project is the culmination of the student’s academic and experiential work. Theses often build off of internships, papers and projects from other courses, and former work and research.
Former theses include:
*Internship (6 credits)
Students complete a full-time internship during one of their two summers at UF. The internship is for 6 course credits. Students are encouraged to find internships most appropriate to their skills and interests.
Students have interned at The National Gallery of Art, Yellowstone National Park, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, The Churches Conservations Trust in England, and many other museums and cultural institutions around the world.
* International students on the F1/J1 Visa may not begin the internship until the formal CPT process is initiated and approved by the University of Florida International Center. (Paid and unpaid/volunteer, part-time and full-time, on-campus and off campus all require formal ADVANCE approval.)
