Certificate in Aging Studies

The Certificate in Aging Studies is a post-baccalaureate graduate certificate program that can be completed on its own, or as part of a combined program outlined below. 

The Department of Gerontology, in cooperation with other programs at the university, provides students intersted in working with elders or in gerontological settings with the opportunity to complete the Certificate in Aging Studies while also completing requirements for other degree programs, including:

  • Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (MSOT)

Students interested in pursuing a combined Certificate in Aging Studies must apply separately to the participating programs and must meet all admission and degree requirements for both programs. In some cases, and with the approval of the advisers of both programs, cousre work in one program may be approved to satisfy a course requirement in another program.
