(19 semester hours)


Open to all majors, this multidisciplinary minor provides an understanding of aging as it affects the individual and our society. As the elderly become a significant percentage of our population, this is an area of increasing focus. Miami's gerontology program is particularly strong because of its association with the nationally known Scripps Gerontology Center.


A minimum 2.0 g.p.a. is required for all courses in this minor. With the exception of GTY 440G Fieldwork in Gerontology, courses must be taken for a grade (not credit/no-credit). Students planning to take this minor should consult with the chief departmental adviser.
