The gerontology program is an interdisciplinary program that fosters educational, research, and service activities pertinent to aging. The program offers an interdisciplinary undergraduate minor and an interdisciplinary certificate of undergraduate study. The gerontology minor and certificate allow students to integrate current knowledge and research on adulthood and aging into their degree programs.
A degree-program student must apply to the gerontology program. Students must complete a minimum of 15 semester hours with at least 9 semester hours from the primary content area, with no more than 6 of the required 15 semester hours from a single department. Credit hours applied to satisfy the requirements for a major may not be counted again as satisfying the requirements for an interdisciplinary minor.
