People Around Me are Getting Older: Engaging Undergraduates in Gerontological Research
The purpose of this study was to engage undergraduate Psychology of Aging students in a qualitative inquiry with field experiences in an effort to improve students’ communication skills, connectedness to learning and understanding of aging concepts. The results suggest that melding gerontology curricula with research concepts and field experiences early in undergraduate studies may be beneficial to secure greater interest in pursuing careers which have a gerontological emphasis: business, nursing, art, substance abuse counseling, and social work.
