|The Graduate Faculty|
The interdisciplinary graduate minor in Gerontology is administered by a committee of faculty appointed by the Gerontology Center Advisory Board. The committee members represent diverse programs within the University.
Students admitted to the minor will develop a course of study that includes both prescribed course work and additional course work suited to the student's interests. The minor course of study will be developed jointly by the student, the student's academic adviser, and one member of the graduate minor gerontology committee. Contact the Gerontology Center (S-105 Henderson) for information regarding the committee membership.
The minor requires a minimum of 10 credits of the master's level and 15 credits at the doctoral level, 10 of which are prescribed.
