The UCF minor in Florida Studies brings together faculty from history, English, political science, and other disciplines to create an integrated, in-depth exploration of our state’s changing identity as a part of the United States as well as a bridge to the Caribbean Basin, Latin America, and the rest of the world.

Students can benefit from Florida Studies courses as they prepare for careers ranging from law to social work, from historic preservation to international business, from K-12 education to environmental policy, from sports to politics, from growth management to urban planning, from arts and literature to entertainment, from tourism to trade, and from medical science to care for the elderly.

If you plan to live, work, or study in Florida, this program is for you. Join us as we explore Florida’s past and prepare for Florida’s future!

Minor Requirements

Students must complete 6 courses (18 credits) in Florida Studies courses and must declare the minor through the myUCF Student Center in order to be awarded the minor upon graduation.
