As the American population grows older, there is an acute need for trained professionals who can work in numerous fields related to gerontology, elder care services and geriatric medicine. That’s where you come in if you choose this program as your major. WOU’s program is nationally recognized, and graduates often have jobs lined up before they even leave campus. If you enjoy working with and supporting older Americans, consider the field of gerontology.
Choose from B.A.S. or B.S.
A minor in gerontology is a great complement to a major related to a health care field. “Gero” mixes well with biology, psychology, sociology or social science. Or pair it with Public Health major if you want to serve the elder population specifically.
