The Graduate Certificate in Applied Gerontology

The Graduate Certificate in Applied Gerontology (GCAG) is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to successfully pursue or advance careers within aging services organizations or academic research in aging. The GCAG is coordinated through the Center for Aging & Translational Research (CATR).

Students wishing to earn a GCAG must complete the required 18 graduate credit hours with an overall GPA of 3.00 or better. No student may complete all 18 credits within a single school or college.  A maximum of half of the credits (9) may be double counted toward one's degree program.

This graduate-level certificate is designed for two audiences:

  1. Graduate-degree seeking students in fields such as Nursing, Social Work, Humanities, Sociology, Psychology, Architecture, and Human Movement Sciences etc.
  2. Returning students currently working in the field of aging who hold a Bachelor's degree and do not wish to complete a graduate degree.

Please see the CATR website for more information and application procedures.

The Helen Bader Age & Community Scholarship program is part of the University's mission of linking academic expertise to community innovation in aging services. Its primary goal has been to mitigate the financial barriers preventing students from studying Gerontology. Since 2004, over $500,000 in Helen Bader Scholarships for Studies in Aging has been awarded to students in a wide range of disciplines.
