The graduate Certificate in Gerontology and Health will provide graduate students, individual practitioners, and professionals working with the elderly a substantive foundation in gerontology coursework at the graduate level and opportunity to apply knowledge through a practicum experience.

As a student in the program, you complete 12 credit hours of graduate course work, including a 3 credit hour practicum. All of the course work and the practicum can be completed online or on campus.

Courses cover the social, cultural, biological and psychological aspects of gerontology. Current issues in pharmacology, the family, exercise physiology, and the diversity of the older adult population are featured.

The interactive, multimedia courses use case studies from current practitioners.
