    The disabilities in society minor provides opportunities for undergraduates in all UF colleges to enhance their knowledge of disabilities and the impact disabilities have on the lives of people who experience them and on the people with whom they live and interact.

    This minor facilitates understanding of disabilities and disability-related issues that are applicable in a variety of settings. The focus will be on understanding types of disabilities, how disabilities are perceived in society, the ways people with disabilities are included in recreational, leisure, employment, educational and other community activities, and the legal aspects of disability policies.

They must apply for the minor after earning 45 hours and before earning 100 hours. A minimum 2.0 GPA is required and transfer credits are not accepted. All courses must be taken at UF.
