Gerontology teaches no courses of its own under our abbreviation, GERN, but the KU Schedule of Classes does list numerous courses related to aging. Consider the lists below a starting point for your course selection process. Recent courselists can be found here:

Note that this is the Registrar's cross-listing. Not ALL courses listed here have aging content. Take care that the content of the course is what you want because some departments put changing content under generic course numbers that sometimes have age-related content (e.g., PSYC 800). Consider this list the starting point of your course selection process. We would also appreciate hearing about any course that are not listed here, but should be.
