The gerontology minor at Saint Mary's College educates students about complex issues that equip them to respond constructively to the individual, family, community, societal, and global challenges of aging.   Due to dramatic increases in the older population, graduates with a minor in gerontology have an advantage in the job market and are well prepared to make a difference in the world! This interdisciplinary minor requires 15 credit hours and integrates well with requirements for most majors.
