The aging population is expected to cause diverse social issues and challenges to Korean society. Korea has confronted various cultural changes in social and family structures, values, norms, and beliefs. Increasing expenditures for social services, pensions, and health care for the aging population have also become challenges in Korea.
Institutions of higher education in Korea rarely offer undergraduate programs that will equip students with solid gerontological knowledge and skills that would provide graduates with the ability to respond to various needs and concerns related to aging issues. With the publications and documents of the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education (AGHE) and gerontology curricula of 13 universities in the United States, this project developed a standard curriculum for a bachelor's degree in gerontology for Korean universities. Evaluators suggested several issues to be considered in the implementation of the curriculum including faculty preparation and cost.
