Undergraduate Certificate

The Undergraduate Certificate in Gerontology is designed to prepare students for advanced study in gerontology and for entry into aging-related career fields. The 18-semester-hour curriculum provides foundational knowledge of the biological, psychological, and sociological dimensions of aging; health care organization and delivery; social service programs available to older persons; and contemporary aging policy issues. Through course work and internship experiences, students gain specialized knowledge and skills that prepare them for our rapidly aging society and will allow them to work with an increasingly diverse population of older adults in a variety of contexts and settings including, but not limited to: government; not for profit agencies; private industry; volunteer organization; recreation programs; senior citizen centers; the health care industry; nursing homes; and senior living facilities.
