This concentration instills a sound understanding of aging processes, a commitment to the pursuit of new developments and research, and a belief that the latter years of life have intrinsic value and offer the potential for human fulfillment.
Students in the interdisciplinary applied gerontology concentration may take as many as 18 graduate credit hours in their primary field of gerontology and must complete course work in two other related academic disciplines, such as anthropology, criminal justice, geography, health care management or sociology. At least 6 credit hours must be completed in each of the three academic areas.
Students will develop a degree plan with the assistance of the INSD academic counselor.
