The Philosophy Minor at UF

1. Admission to the minor

As with majors, students are encouraged to apply for the minor early, as minors are (along with majors) given special opportunities for registering for the area distribution requirement courses. Students may not apply for a minor until they have completed 45 credit hours. Applications for the minor are made at the CLAS Advising Center , opens in a new window. To apply for the minor, there is no need to see the Undergraduate Coordinator. However, as with applications for admissions to the major at the upper division level, students should ensure that they can fit in the requirements for the minor in a timely fashion.

2. Minor requirements (as of 2012 catalog year)

The minor in philosophy requires a total of 15 credit hours in philosophy. At least 9 credits must be at the 3000-level or above, and no more than six transfer credits may count towards the minor. There is also a distribution requirement. Students must satisfy at least two of the following four options:
