Minor in Aging Services
For more information contact Mary Handley
The Aging Services minor provides an overview of the issues presented by, and the skills required to understand, our aging population. It addresses a student's interest in working with people who are aging or working within agencies servicing this population.
This minor requires several human services courses as well as an internship at an agency providing aging services. Internship possibilities include senior day centers, Meals on Wheels, the Office for the Aging, and Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP).
