Minor in Intergenerational Studies

Gain knowledge of human development across the lifespan and build relationships between geriatric populations and children.

As researchers learn more about the benefits of bringing the geriatric population and children together, the field of intergenerational studies is booming.

To learn about human development across the lifespan, students explore child psychology and welfare, general sociology, adult psychology, family structures, social gerontology and more. In short, they study everything that influences us from conception to death.

This interdisciplinary minor equips students with theoretical, methodological and practical skills so they can strengthen the relationships that hold communities together.
