Gerontology

Studying gerontology provides an opportunity for students to engage in a multidisciplinary study of the biological, psychological and social determinants of the aging process. The undergraduate minor may be used to supplement a number of majors, including political science, nursing, biology, economics, business administration, psychology, social work and sociology. The minor provides a knowledge base regarding the special needs of this segment of the population; the skills required to work effectively with older adults; and discussion of the economic, political, clinical and social issues surrounding the increasingly larger proportion of aged individuals in the American society.
