A rise in the aging population means there is an increasing need for graduates with knowledge and skills in the field of gerontology. There is no better way to immerse yourself in the profusion of wisdom and life experience possessed by our older generation than to join the Gerontology Certificate program at Maryville. The program is a multidisciplinary approach with courses that provide a broad background in the field of aging. As a student of gerontology, you will acquire knowledge of the physical, mental, social and cultural aspects of aging.
