Living and working with older adults.
The minor in Gerontology prepares graduates to work directly with or on behalf of older adults by drawing on coursework from multiple disciplines and collaborating with practitioners in aging-related professions. It may accompany any major but is especially recommended for students in health science majors and/or students with an interest in human service and medical professions.
