All students must have an overall and USF GPA of 2.0 in order to declare their major in public health. Majors and minors will be updated in your records within 2-3 business days.

Declaration of Minor

It is advised to declare your minor by 90 credit hours and to speak with your Academic Advisor about this addition and the excess credit hours policy. Please note, there should be no overlap (“double-dipping”) between a major and a minor. Courses can only be used for one. 

Available Minors:

  • General Public Health
  • Nutritional Science
  • Environmental Health
  • Health Education
  • Infection Control
  • Community Engaged Home Land Security & Emergency Management
