Gerontology Minor

Return to: College of Health and Human Services

Dr. Anne Glass, coordinator

The Department of Health and Applied Human Sciences offers an interdisciplinary minor in gerontology which focuses on the study of older adults and the aging process. The minor draws faculty from the Departments of Sociology and Criminology, Psychology, Health and Applied Human Sciences (e.g., Community Health and Recreation Therapy), Social Work, Nursing and humanities fields. The minor is designed for students with a general interest in aging. Students completing the minor will be prepared for careers which involve working with older adults. Coursework encourages students to obtain field experience in local agencies serving older adults. Students should contact the coordinator for additional information.
