Gerontology

Our population is getting older. That aging carries implications for our businesses, corporations, governments and other key institutions. Professionals from a variety of fields can offer important contributions in how society cares for and interacts with people as they age.

This certificate program goes beyond the study of the science of aging. It provides a broad look at factors related to the aging of individuals and society at large. You’ll study biology, psychology and sociology. Whether your field is caregiving, education, product development, research, advocacy, counseling, activity directing or any other discipline, a certificate in gerontology will give you important and applicable knowledge that can enhance the work you’re already doing.
