The Special Program in the Study of Aging is an interdisciplinary undergraduate certificate program that is offered through the College of Letters & Science and is available to all students at UWM. Designed to supplement a broad range of student interests and academic and preprofessional majors, the program consists of 18 credits including:

1. At least 9 credits (three courses) from core curriculum courses that are classified on the basis of content into one of three areas: the humanistic, behaviorial, and biological dimensions of aging. Students must select courses from at least two of the three areas. (See the program coordinator for a current list.)

2. Three credits of independent research in aging. Research projects are approved by the coordinator and, with the help of a faculty advisor, are tailored to the particular interests of the student.

3. Up to 6 credits of aging-related courses may be counted toward the 18 required credits. Normally, students select these courses after consulting with their faculty advisor in the program. A maximum of 3 credits of approved independent study over and above the independent research requirement may be counted as part of the aging-related courses.

The student must maintain a 2.500 GPA for the 18 credits that make up the certificate.

For additional information, contact the program advisor.
