About Our College
UNF was established in 1965 and began offering classes in 1972. UNF was initially designated an upper division college for juniors and seniors. It began admitting freshmen in 1984. UNF is organized into six colleges, five of which offer undergraduate and graduate degree programs, including doctoral degree programs, with noted business, coastal biology, nursing, nutrition, and music programs. Doctoral programs offered through the Brooks College of Health at UNF include the doctorate in clinical nutrition, BSN-DNP in family nurse practitioner, BSN-DNP in nurse anesthesiology, post-MSN doctor of nursing practice, post-MSN doctor of nursing practice in psych-mental health, and doctor of physical therapy. The College of Education and Human Services offers the specialist degree in educational leadership and the doctorate of education in educational leadership. Most students reside off campus, though there are six areas of on-campus housing. In 2006, the Social Sciences building became the first facility to be LEED-certified in northeast Florida, as well as the first "green" building on campus. As of 2010, five buildings on campus have been certified by the U.S. Green Building Council.
