An aging baby boomer population is placing gerontology front and center in the marketplace, and a minor in gerontology enhances almost every major on campus. Whether you plan to work in a human service setting, recreation and leisure, health and medicine, psychology, sociology, engineering, marketing or design, your experience in working with the elderly increases your own market value.

Through registered student organizations like the Gerontology Club and Care*Share*Connect and courses that use the Bridges Together curriculum, you also have the chance to do good work through service learning initiatives.

The gerontology minor calls for 24 credits (12 required and 12 electives) in a total of eight courses that are sure to develop the depth of your expertise. Many of the courses also count toward other majors and minors.
