The College of Health and Human Services and the College of Arts and Science jointly sponsor the undergraduate Gerontology Certificate Program for students in any major program who want to gain knowledge and skills for a career that involves working with the elderly. Since the knowledge and research associated with aging span a variety of disciplines, coursework in a number of established departments facilitates student learning opportunities. Health care, social services, recreation, mental health, education, administration, and business are examples of service areas that now employ large numbers of persons working with and for the aging population.
