Gerontology Secondary Major

Gerontology is available to all undergraduate students as a secondary major.  It must be taken concurrently with a primary major of the student’s choice in any college. Most programs of study will allow the student to take both a primary and secondary major within the normal four year academic program of his/her college.

The secondary major in gerontology is a 24-credit-hour program of study which includes two required courses and 18 hours of electives taken from a list of approved gerontology courses offered in departments across the university.  Students must meet with the Center on Aging advisor to declare the secondary major in order for this emphasis to appear on their university transcripts.

Elective courses

Additional courses may be approved for gerontology credit on a case-by-case basis by the Center on Aging Academic Affairs Committee.  Courses listed in the gerontology line schedule on the Center on Aging website are approved as electives for the secondary major in gerontology.

Courses which require prior approval for credit as a gerontology elective

See the Center on Aging advisor for permission to use these courses as an elective for the secondary major in gerontology.  Approval to use as an elective must be received PRIOR to taking the course.
