Gerontology is the study of aging. People are living longer and healthier lives and knowledge about aging and older adults is important to everyone!
Gerontology is essential not only for careers in Health and Human services, but also for everything from business and leisure to finances, education and politics!
Students study the physical, cognitive and social changes that are the hallmarks of aging. Through innovative and experiential learning approaches, the SCSU Gerontology Program helps prepare students with the skills and expertise needed to participate in the field of aging as professionals, leaders, and collaborative partners.
The program is committed to fostering integrity, civic responsibility and recognition of the value in and working with a diverse and global community.
