The minor introduces students to the context and foundational knowledge required for administrative or managerial work within residential communities for older adults - including independent living, assisted living, Alzheimer's/memory care, and continuing care retirement communities. Students will examine the current U.S. health care and senior housing environment, best practices in day-to-day management and marketing of senior housing communities, and have the opportunity to gain additional understanding of ethical, legal, and gerontological issues applicable to aging populations. Health Administration majors may pursue either the concentration in Senior Housing Administration or complete senior housing coursework to fulfill elective requirements for other concentrations in the degree.
The minor is available only to students outside of the Health Administration major.
At least 12 credits must be unique to the minor and cannot be used to fulfill the program of study requirements of the student’s major, concentration, undergraduate certificate, or another minor. Students must complete all coursework with a minimum GPA of 2.00. Students should be familiar with university-wide requirements for minors described in AP.5.3.4 Minors.
