  • Leadership

    Credits: 15, with a minimum cumulative 3.0 GPA for courses in the minor

    The minor is open to all UF students, although admission is by application. A cumulative 3.0 GPA is necessary and the minor must be added before a student completes 90 credits. Additional information and the application are posted each semester.

    The interdisciplinary minor in leadership, in conjunction with the successful completion of the degree program, provides the fundamental skills and knowledge necessary to assume leadership, supervisory or management positions in private companies and nonprofit organizations. Because the minor is interdisciplinary, it draws on the expertise of faculty and staff in colleges across campus, which may include Agricultural and Life Sciences, Business Administration, Health and Human Performance, Journalism and Communications, and Liberal Arts and Sciences.


    Students must earn a minimum grade of B in AEC 3414 Leadership Development to continue in the minor. An overall 3.0 GPA is required in all courses for the minor.
