Master of Arts in Gerontology

Geared toward busy professionals who already have experience in the field, this degree is rooted in the same rigorous intellectual base as the MSG degree. By giving graduates a formal education in gerontology as well as an executive polish that complements their existing experience, the MAG degree can help maximize career potential for its recipients. Unlike the MSG program, the MAG program does not require an internship, research methods or grant writing since students typically already have five or more years work experience.

Typically, students pursuing this degree have at least five years of experience in their field, which can span the gamut from health care to office work to law and beyond—there is no end to the products and services required by the ever-growing aging population.

As with all of our master’s and certificate programs, this curriculum is available to onsite as well as online students.

This 28-unit master’s program can be completed at the rate most convenient for students: by taking 12 or more units per semester, the degree can be completed in a year. By taking eight units per semester, students can complete the degree in two years; by taking four units per semester students can finish in two and a half years.
