Additional Major Requirements

Major Requirements

Students in the B.S. program will only be allowed to register for the full-time internship (GEY 4945) after successful completion of all (or all but one) of the required courses in the B.S. major. Because the B.S. internship requires full-time effort, students will be allowed to take no more than four (4) credits concurrent with the B.S. internship. NOTE: a Level 2 background check is required for most Field Placements, possibly at the student's expense.

Students interested in either the Gerontology or Long Term Care Administration majors should contact the School of Aging Studies http://agingstudies.cbcs.usf.edu/advising/ as early as possible in their careers at the University of South Florida.

Major Grade Requirement

A grade of lower than "C-" in Gerontology courses will not be counted toward fulfilling the requirements for the major.
