Jazz education in Florida may be battling a case of the blues, with just one of 19 graduates getting a full-time job in state. FAMU discontinued the program earlier this year due to budget cuts. UNF remains committed to its jazz studies program. ¿We have to have programs that speak to student interest and passion as much as we have to offer programs that address areas of economic development and critical state needs,¿ said Mark Workman, UNF¿s provost.
