Instructional Design & Technology
The B.S. in Instructional Design and Technology degree program provides students with the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to diagnose organizational performance issues, and apply systems thinking, instructional design, and human performance technology concepts to facilitate learning and performance improvement solutions in business, industry, healthcare, military, and other organizational settings. Students graduating from this program will be prepared to analyze organizational performance, identify root causes of current or potential deficiencies, and design, develop, implement, and evaluate appropriate solutions.
In addition to the General Education requirements listed on this page, students must satisfy all additional University requirements, including the Gordon Rule, multicultural, and foreign language requirements. With appropriate planning and coordination with an academic advisor, students may satisfy some of the general University requirements through the General Education curriculum. For a complete listing of general degree requirements, refer to the "University Requirements" section of this catalog.
General Education Curriculum:
Civic Literacy Requirement
The 2017 Florida Legislature amended Section 1007.25, Florida Statutes, to require students initially entering a State University System (SUS) and/or Florida College System (FCS) institution in 2018-2019 and thereafter to demonstrate competency in civic literacy. The 2021 Legislature further amended Florida Statutes, requiring students to complete both a civic literacy course and exam. As a result, there are three cohorts of students currently matriculating at Florida public institutions subject to varying requirements. As demonstrated in the table below, the exact civic literacy requirements are based on the academic term in which a student first enrolled in a Florida public institution.
|Students Included in Cohort||Civic Literacy Competency Requirement|
|Cohort 1: Students first entering the SUS or FCS prior to fall 2018||None|
|Cohort 2: Students first entering the SUS or FCS in fall 2018 – summer A 2021||Complete a course or exam |
|Cohort 3: Students first entering the SUS or FCS in summer B 2021 (on or after July 1, 2021) and thereafter||Complete both a course and exam|
Additionally, the 2021 Legislature made two additional exceptions: approving the use of accelerated mechanisms for meeting the course competency requirement and exempting high school students who pass the Florida Civic Literacy Exam in high school from the postsecondary exam requirement. These two changes are in effect for Cohort 3.
There are multiple ways to satisfy this requirement. Students should work with their academic advisor to determine which option is best for their degree requirements/degree plan.
