Field Major/BGS in Aging Studies

Aging Studies (AGE)

The instructional mission of the degree program in aging studies at Wichita State is to provide knowledge of aging and its impact on individuals, families and society to students preparing for or engaged in careers in which they will plan, manage and deliver services for the aging through public- or private-sector organizations, agencies or institutions.

Fairmount College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, in collaboration with the College of Health Professions, offers two 100 percent online undergraduate degree programs in aging studies. The Bachelor of General Studies with an emphasis in aging studies, and the Bachelor of Arts field major in aging studies allow students to build a program of study where the primary area is aging studies. The College of Health Professions offers a minor in aging studies, the Master of Arts in aging studies, and the administrator-in-training (AIT) for long-term care administration licensure.

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences will continue to offer undergraduate degrees with a concentration in aging studies through the field major and Bachelor of General Studies options. Contact the LAS Advising Center for degree requirements.
