Gerontology Interdisciplinary Certificates Overview
The program is designed for persons who want to work in the field of aging, those already active in the field and those who simply want to personally benefit from knowing more about the aging process and the implications of living in an aging society.
The interdisciplinary curriculum provides an overall view of the aging process and older adults. It examines specific changes common to older individuals as well as the broader psychological and social issues they face. Students interested in specific careers in gerontology should consult with the faculty to develop a program of study to meet their individual goals.
