Our gerontology minor is a multidisciplinary field, meaning the courses are spread across several academic disciplines. The study of gerontology examines the correlates and consequences of human aging. There are many issues and areas of concern associated with aging and serving the older population, including economics, health care, employment, retirement, housing, politics, and family/intimate relationships.
As a multidisciplinary field, there are many different paths a minor in gerontology could lead—providing direct services to the elderly, designing, implementing, and evaluating programs for the elderly, assisting with financial planning, or administering agencies and organizations that serve needs of older individuals. There are many career opportunities within these areas, offering you more options and potential employment after graduation.
24 credits required
The objectives for the gerontology minor are consistent with the multidisciplinary nature of the program.
