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.
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.
