About

The Gerontology Institute

The Gerontology Institute at Georgia State University has existed for over 30 years and is among the oldest and most accomplished gerontology programs in the Southeast. The Gerontology Institute’s faculty are active researchers and serve in leadership roles in organizations such as the Gerontological Society of America and the Southern Gerontology Society. Gerontology students receive individual attention and mentorship, but also have all the benefits of being at a large, urban university. Located in downtown Atlanta, Georgia State University is in close proximity to numerous programs, services, and organizations that provide students with first-hand experiences in the field of aging. The State Capitol, Division of Aging Services, Atlanta Regional Commission, Grady Hospital, and many other are all within walking distance.
