Baby boomers — the generation born between 1946 and 1964 — are aging. By 2030, 69 million people (more than 20% of the US population) will be over 65. More the 35% will be over 50. How will that dramatic shift in demographics impact our society?
USF’s Gerontology minor provides students with an interdisciplinary understanding of the many aspects of the aging process and gives them the knowledge to pursue a career in an exploding field. Students explore aging through a variety of lenses — kinesiology, biology, psychology, communications, and performing arts — while working alongside older adults in San Francisco Bay Area communities.
