Gerontology Minor


As the population ages, the demand for professionals with training in gerontology is growing. The gerontology minor is a flexible minor and has been pursued by graduate students from many colleges and programs across the University, such as journalism and mass communication, sociology, medicine, nursing, psychology, and family social science, among others.

Requirements and more information

The gerontology minor is housed in the School of Public Health and is open to students enrolled in any master's, doctoral, or professional program at the University.

The master's level minor requires a minimum of 8 graduate-level credits (5xxx or higher) and the doctoral level program requires a minimum of 12 credits.

Students design their programs in consultation with the Director of Graduate Studies, Joe Gaugler, PhD.
