Welcome to the new Gerontology Department!
Western Oregon University has developed the state's first Gerontology Major and the first Gerontology Minor. These cutting edge programs were designed to give people the skills and expertise to work in the myriad of fields that help older adults and their families. These programs also can help students prepare themselves for master and doctoral level programs. We have hired some of the nation's leading experts in gerontology.
The new Gerontology major consists of 58 credit hours of coursework. For more information about this major, read the Gerontology Brochure.
