The Graduate Certificate in Aging Services prepares a qualified work force to address the needs of our aging population. The need for a gerontology certificate arises because the complex issues and problems of aging require an interdisciplinary perspective that is not provided within any single discipline. The knowledge and skills acquired will enable graduates to integrate gerontology into their discipline and to provide services for an older population. The certificate provides documentation that students have completed an organized program of interdisciplinary gerontology courses.
Please refer to the admission section of this catalog for Graduate School admission requirements.
