The Master of Science in Gerontology trains professionals for leading roles to meet the needs of America’s growing elderly population. Our program’s goal is to graduate students who understand the basic processes of aging, apply theoretical approaches to aging to their particular fields and circumstances, and can evaluate information about older adults from various sources and perspectives.
This Master of Science in Gerontology meets the standards for gerontology programs of the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education (AGHE), the professional organization of post-secondary gerontology programs in the United States.
The option to write a thesis is now available!
