Gerontology Certificate

Total Units Required: 21

The Minor and Certificate in Gerontology consists of an interdisciplinary cluster of courses, which enables students to effectively work with older adults and their families in a variety of settings. The programs augment majors such as social work, recreation, nursing, psychology, sociology, nutrition, and other helping professions to work with older adults and their families.

A student enrolled in the Gerontology Certificate Program must be accepted for University admission and must complete required course work as outlined. It is not necessary to complete the requirements for a bachelor's degree in order to receive the Certificate in Gerontology.
