Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

Growth in the population of older persons in the U.S. and worldwide has created a demand for professionals with specialized knowledge in the field of aging. The Aging Studies Minor is a 15-credit interdisciplinary minor open to all majors. Because of the biopsychosocial nature of the aging process, three foundational courses are required. Students choose two additional  3-credit courses from various disciplines to complete the minor. Courses within the minor may also be taken individually as electives. The Aging Studies Minor aims to encourage students in various academic majors to expand their knowledge and professional development related to aging and older adulthood.
