Gerontology is the study of aging - a very complex and fascinating process which we all experience. It is complex because it encompasses the physiological, social, emotional, cognitive, and economic aspects of growing old. By completing the one-year certificate program, students may find immediate opportunity for employment in professional and paraprofessional entry-level positions at human service agencies, senior centers, residential communities, health care facilities, and other agencies that provide much needed services for the elderly. For others, this certificate will allow them to further enhance their knowledge of gerontology.
