One major – two colleges

All students at the University of Florida must fulfill the university’s General Education Requirements. Students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences must fulfill College-level requirements of CLAS; students in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences must fulfill the College-level requirements of CALS.

Students may earn the botany degree through either The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences or the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. A summary of the differences between the College-level requirements for the two programs are provided in the chart below.

These college-level differences, below, are the only differences between earning a botany degree through CLAS and CALS. The major-specific requirements are the same for both colleges.
