Gerontology is the comprehensive study of aging across lifespans, with a focus on the specific issues of older persons and their families. Gerontology is an interdisciplinary field covering the fields of biology, health and health care, policy, law, and other behavioral and social sciences. This graduate certificate program combines theoretical and applied coursework in aging with a graduate curriculum in any department. Because gerontology is multidisciplinary, students must take coursework outside of their major field.
