In 1990, Aging Studies was established as an academic program within The University of New Mexico’s Interdisciplinary Studies. In 2004, the Aging Studies program became part of UNM’s University College and an undergraduate minor in Aging Studies was created. The continuing mission of Aging Studies is the preparation of students for the multifaceted challenges and opportunities associated with aging. The undergraduate minor in Aging Studies, which includes courses from across seven different schools and colleges at UNM, provides students with a strong theoretical and practical foundation on which to base personal and societal decisions that directly affect successful and productive aging. The synthesis of knowledge and experience from many disciplines insures a dynamic and vital framework that allows UNM students to create their own special approach to the problems and possibilities of the aging process.
