Applied Gerontology helps students develop a sound understanding of the processes of aging, 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.
The vision, knowledge and skills of professionals who embrace this philosophy will be increasingly necessary as our global communities seek to meet the needs of their growing populations of older adults.
Faculty with expertise in applied gerontology, health services, rehabilitation counseling, substance use, and behavioral health concerns prepare students for a career that makes a positive impact on the lives of others.
Alumni of our programs become researchers, educators, administrators, and clinicians. Our department’s excellence is demonstrated through our students, faculty, and the community outreach programs they maintain.
