According to the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education, one in five Americans will be over the age of 65 by 2050, with 15 to 18 million citizens over the age of 85. Over the next decades, our need for individuals with specialized training in caring for our aging population will only continue to climb.
Webster University’s graduate certificate in Applied Gerontology Enhancement and Specialization is designed for professionals who currently work, have worked, or will work in the field of gerontology and have attained a bachelor’s or master’s degree. Through this program, you will develop your managerial and administrative skills and gain the knowledge you need to effectively meet the needs of the aging population in a variety of career settings.
Because gerontology is a relatively new specialization in healthcare, most students go on to create their own positions or businesses within the field as career opportunities continue to expand.
