A minor in Gerontology helps prepares students for careers working with older adults or being advocates for the elderly. This minor is a an excellent addition to a degree for anyone who will be helping people as they age including doctors, nurses, social workers, human service workers, and occupational therapists. As our population continues to age, the need for educated professionals in gerontology will continue to grow. Our minor includes courses in sociology, social work, and psychology and allows/encourages students to do an internship.
