Program: Gerontology Certificate

Program Description

The Graduate Certificate in Gerontology is offered by the College of Health and Human Development to prepare a qualified workforce to address the needs of our aging population. The certificate provides an opportunity for those who have completed a bachelor’s degree in another discipline to acquire an understanding of the issues and problems of aging and to provide services for an older population. The certificate program complements many other graduate degree programs and can be taken concurrently since many of the courses satisfy requirements or electives for graduate programs. The certificate program is a rigorous and demanding educational experience, designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills to pursue a career in the field of aging.
