The Certificate in Gerontology is intended for graduate students interested in developing a special expertise in aging. This certificate program is also available to students enrolled in the Counseling, Human Sciences or Thanatology master’s programs. The goals of the certificate are: (1) to acquaint students with the fundamental issues and problems confronting older adults in our society, (2) to immerse students in the vast body of scholarship related to the biological, psychological, and social aspects of aging, (3) to expose students to the various career paths available to individuals with expertise in gerontology, and (4) to assist students in developing professional competencies in working with older adults.
Students applying for the Gerontology certificate must have a Bachelor's degree from an accredited institution. Please submit one official transcript reflecting the highest degree conferred.
