Aging Studies Minor
The Aging Studies minor provides students an understanding of the multi-faceted nature of aging through coursework and experiential learning and is appropriate for students across the college. In the core introductory class students will learn about the biological, psychological, and social aspects of aging and relate that knowledge to the lives of older adults in the community. Upper level elective courses allow students to examine specific aspects of aging in more depth.
The minor in Aging Studies requires a minimum of 15 credits, including 3 required credits and 12 elective credits. Some courses have pre-requisites.
