The Minor in Gerontology (study of aging) is open to students in any major. It is designed to serve undergraduate majors in business; communicative sciences and disorders; child, family, and consumer science; health science; nursing; kinesiology; physical therapy; psychology; therapeutic recreation; social work; and sociology.
The minor consists of 15 semester units of credit. Students should register in the Gerontology Program Office and meet with the gerontology director if they plan to request a minor.
*Other gerontology courses may be approved as alternatives with permission of a gerontology adviser.
Note: The Gerontology Minor also requires a 2.0 GPA and 6 upper-division units in residence. If students take a cross-listed course from their major, the cross-listed course only counts toward the Gerontology Minor if the unit requirements for the major can be met without using the cross-listed course toward their major.
A Special Major for those interested in Gerontology may be designed. The process for this is initiated through the University Advising Center, 559.278.1787, Joyal Administration, Room 224.
