Declaration of Major/Minor


Declaration of Major

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. Students are expected to graduate within the minimum number of semesters appropriate to their academic work completed at the time of admission in accordance with the USF Degree Progression and Completion Deadlines policy and Florida's Excess Hours Surcharge Policy.

Remember, your request might not be permitted if it does not fall within the criteria of the Degree Progression Deadlines and Excess 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
  • Infection Control
  • Community Engaged Home Land Security & Emergency Management

Non Tampa Campus Students

Please be advised that if your home campus is not Tampa, you cannot declare into the Public Health major, you must first be accepted to USF Tampa campus prior to declaring your major.
