Welcome to the UNCG Gerontology Program in the School of Health and Human Sciences.
Learn how our unique focus on business and aging leads students from a broad spectrum of skills toward employment to address the growing needs of an aging society.

The mission of the UNCG GROStudentGroupPhotoOctober2014Smaller
Gerontology Program
is to teach, research, and apply gerontological knowledge through collaborative relationships with academic disciplines, community organizations, and businesses to enrich the lives of older adults and their families.

Graduates are prepared to be leaders in the profession and to serve older adults locally and nationally through the business, health, non-profit, and academic sectors.

Prospective students find answers to frequent questions in our helpful FAQ and our Gerontology Program Student Handbook 2013-2014.
