Inter-Faculty Option in Aging
Graduates of Option in Aging will have an extra edge in dynamic fields such as social work, nursing, fitness, recreation and leisure, family and community support, human nutrition, clothing and textiles, environment, psychological therapy and academics.
The Option in Aging is an opportunity to expand your area of study into several faculties, classrooms, and learning experiences. It offers a diverse and well-rounded degree. It is called an option because instead of your courses being concentrated within a single faculty, the option spans five faculties, each of which offers its own specialized and targeted courses on aging.
The Option in Aging consists of 18 credit hours of aging-related coursework. Students who complete the Option in Aging will have it added to their transcript upon graduation.
Students from the following five faculties can elect to complete the Option in Aging:
In order to declare the Option in Aging, students must meet with an Academic Advisor once they have successfully completed the two compulsory courses of KIN/NURS 2610* and REC/HMEC/SWRK 2650* (*offerings alternate between faculties).
Upon graduation, a student who has met all the requirements will have the concentration added to their transcript indicating they have completed the Option in Aging.
