The Minor in Gerontology is designed to allow you to blend your major and career goals with the growing population of older adults. The steadily increasing number of adults over 60 years old is staggering, and industries ranging from health care to robotics are responding to the needs of this large and special group. The Occupational Outlook Handbook, found online at the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, shows that among the fastest growing occupations are many that work directly or indirectly with older adults.
