Gerontology (Minor)

Undergraduate
  • Minor

About this Program

Studying gerontology provides an opportunity for students to engage in a multidisciplinary study of the biological, psychological and social determinants of the aging process.

Program Overview

The undergraduate minor may be used to supplement a number of majors, including biology, business administration, economics, nursing, political science, 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.

By supplementing a major with the gerontology minor, students will be better prepared for careers in healthcare, politics, law, counseling, education, business and others.
