Graduate Certificate in Gerontology
This curriculum allows students who already have a bachelor’s degree in a different discipline or experience in another profession to obtain a greater understanding of gerontology theory and research.
Focusing on the science, policy and core educational areas our master’s degrees cover, the graduate certificate does not require a field practicum and serves to add an executive polish to a student’s existing educational and professional background.
Our certificate can perfectly supplement the existing education or experience of professionals in the field as well as expanding their career opportunities. For potential students who wish to bolster their credentials without obtaining a master’s degree, the certificate program is an excellent fit.
As with all of our master’s and certificate programs, this curriculum is available to onsite as well as online students.
The graduate certificate in gerontology has proven to be an invaluable asset to such professionals as nurses, policy and communications experts as well as high-level administrators.
By harnessing the power and breadth of a gerontology education, graduates of the certificate program have been able to expand their current skill set while also gaining countless additional professional opportunities.
Now that the aging revolution is upon us, any professional in any field can benefit from a gerontology education.
