A minor in religion won’t only augment your choice in majors but pique your curiosity as well.

Plan on becoming an engineer? Thinking about a job in business? Interested in the bio-medical field? No matter your major or future career, odds are you’ll need to know something about religion to be the best you can be. Whether it’s a coworker, colleague, consumer, or your own convictions, religion will impact your work. UF Religion offers two minors: one in RELIGION and one in RELIGIOUS ETHICS.

*Those wanting to minor in religion must consult with the undergraduate coordinator. The election of a minor area of study is noted on a student’s transcript, but it is not reflected on the diploma. Students should consult the University of Florida online catalog for important undergraduate information and descriptions of the religion curriculum.
