Gerontology Minor

Be prepared for the future and minor in aging! Our program studies the human life span by exploring the biological, psychological, and sociological dimensions of adult life.
The minor curriculum is aimed at equipping future professionals in the field of aging with the skills and knowledge necessary to respond effectively to the needs of an aging population.
