Gerontology Certificate (Undergraduate)
The world's aging population requires more understanding—and support—from knowledgeable human services professionals. Our undergraduate Gerontology Certificate program provides a foundation of the role of human services and then adds more focused insight into the biology and psychology of aging, institutional settings and the sustainability of relevant social programs for the elderly, and the process of grief and loss. This eight-course program has been developed to align with criteria established by the Council for Standards in Human Service Education.
requires a minimum of credits, which may come from a combination of required and elective courses.
Make an informed choice
We believe that students and families should be prepared financially for college and understand gainful employment opportunities before starting any program. So we want to ensure you have the information you need to make an informed choice - information like what it will cost, the skills you'll learn through your chosen program, and the types of occupations the program prepares you for.
