B.A. in Gerontological Studies (Second Major or Minor Only)

The multidisciplinary Gerontological studies program is designed to integrate research and theory about aging and old age. Humanists, scientists, social scientists, and professionals have become interested in understanding the position of the aged in society, the aging process in various contexts, the meaning of aging to individuals, and the physical changes that accompany aging. The program draws on recent thinking and research in a variety of disciplines to provide students with a background that will be useful after graduation both in careers or graduate or professional school.  For more information, please visit The Gerontological Studies page or contact Professor Gary Deimling or Dale Dannefer in the Department of Sociology.
