The 15 semester-hour undergraduate minor in Gerontology allows a student to enhance her/his major field of academic specialization (e.g. communicative disorders, public health, nursing, physical therapy, nutrition, and other fields) with evidence-based knowledge of the life-course and aging.  Regardless of the career path a student pursues, knowing about the aging experience and older people will be a valuable asset and strength in the job market.
