minor in gerontology.

A minor in gerontology consists of 18 credit hours. Nine hours of core courses are required with the remaining 9 hours to be selected by the student with advice and support of the academic advisor for the department.

The core courses required for the minor will include the following:

  • Gero 2000 - Introduction to Gerontology
  • Gero 4460 - Psychology of Adult Development and Aging
  • Gero 4670 - Programs and Services for the Elderly
  • Gero 4550 - Health Aspects of Aging (while not required, will be strongly encouraged for those seeking a career in health care).

Students may also select a course offered in another department that has at least 75% of its focus on the aging experience. This course can be counted toward a minor in gerontology. A practicum will not be required of students pursuing a minor. The student must earn an overall average of "C" (2.0) in courses for the minor.
