In 2030, one of every five Americans will be over the age of 65. In addition to healthcare, business, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies will demand well-educated, experienced, innovative leaders to meet the needs of this unique population. This is an interdisciplinary area of study that integrates the study of aging with human services and management, designed to provide the necessary theoretical and practical skills required for entry-level gerontology and aging service workers in the community. This transfer pattern is also a guide to students planning to transfer to a four-year institution to complete a bachelor’s degree in gerontology or management of aging services.



GENERAL EDUCATION CORECredits
Students enrolled in transfer patterns must take a
minimum of 30 credits in General Education. Each student’s
total of general education and required courses must equal
at least 60 semester hours of credit.
