The Online Gerontology Graduate Certificate program is 18 credit hours. This curriculum allows students who already have a bachelor’s degree in a different discipline or experience in another profession to obtain a greater understanding of gerontology theory and research. The Online Gerontology Graduate Certificate approaches aging from a variety of perspectives, enabling students to expand their knowledge about programs and services for older adults; provide direct care; advocate for elders; and advise older persons and their families.
