A message from Dean Pinchas Cohen
I am delighted to welcome you to the University of Southern California Leonard Davis School of Gerontology. We are proud to be the preeminent leader nationally and internationally in the field of gerontology, the study of aging across the lifespan.
We are a small school that offers a rigorous, highly personalized experience with eminent, caring faculty within a large, world-class research university. It is literally the best of both worlds!
As pioneers in both on campus and online gerontology education, we offer bachelor’s, master’s, and PhD degrees; postdoctoral and certificate programs; and the option to minor in gerontology.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life for all older adults everywhere through our research, service, and education. We couldn’t take our responsibility of reimagining aging around the world more seriously.
David Eshaghpour, MSW
Senior Associate Dean for Advancement
