About this Program
Students interested in public health careers should consider a combined-degree program rather than this minor.
For students in the College of Public Health and Health Professions, successful completion of this minor satisfies the 9-credit college elective requirement and six credits of general elective credit. Therefore, no additional credits beyond 120 are required for graduation with a minor in public health.
Students must have completed the prerequisites for the BPH program with minimum grades of C to be considered for a minor. Prerequisites include:
- Junior status (60+ credits)
- 3.0 overall GPA
- 3.0 prerequisite GPA
- Completion of the following:
Course List Code Title Credits BSC 2005 Biological Sciences 3 or BSC 2010 Integrated Principles of Biology 1 PSY 2012 General Psychology 3 STA 2023 Introduction to Statistics 1 3 Select one: 3 Abnormal Psychology Developmental PsychologyHealth Psychology
Students may transfer up to three credits of approved coursework toward the minor. All remaining credits must be taken from the course list below.
Interested students should submit the required UF application to add or cancel a minor. Students also must submit a proposed plan of study that includes courses for the minor.
Application materials should be submitted to the Bachelor of Public Health office in the College of Public Health and Health Professions, HPNP 4150. Minors are considered on a space-available basis. Students within the Bachelors of Health Science program are only able to apply one of their core curriculum courses towards the public health minor.
The communication sciences and disorders program and health science program also offers minors.

Counting Credits for Undergraduate or Graduate Degrees
Undergraduates who are interested in public health as a career path, but do not want to pursue the Bachelors of Public Health, should consider the Bachelors/MPH Combined Degree. This would allow courses taken in a student’s senior year to count toward an MPH degree.
