A Gerontology minor prepares students for professional positions in the diverse field of aging. Current predictions indicate that a "baby boomer" will turn 60 every seven seconds for the next 18 years. As a result, pairing this minor with such majors as psychology, sociology, business, English, health, education, interior design, political science and recreation, parks and tourism management, among others, will prove to be beneficial for future employment.
