Minoring in Gerontology involves the study of the human aging process. In an interdisciplinary approach, you’ll take courses in psychology, biology, sociology, kinesiology, and family studies to understand the physical, behavioral, and social changes associated with aging. What are the symptoms of age-related diseases? What ethics surround elderly people’s decision-making? How does mental health affect physical health? You’ll gain knowledge and skills important for a career working with the elderly as you work toward a gerontology minor in conjunction with a different bachelor’s degree major.
