About this Program

The minor is open to all UF students and it must be added before a student completes 90 credits. A cumulative 2.5 GPA is necessary for admission to the minor. Students must earn a minimum grade of B in FYC 4409 to continue in the minor; this course also is a prerequisite for the internship or practicum.

The minor draws primarily from the faculty in Family, Youth and Community Sciences. Electives can be taken from the colleges of Agricultural and Life Sciences, Business, Liberal Arts and Sciences, Journalism and Communications, and Education.
