Associate in Science 

This option prepares students for entry-level positions working with the elderly and for transfer to a 4-year college. The option presents the demographic, social, biological, and psychological changes occurring in elderly people and how these changes determine the skills and services needed to work in gerontology.



The gerontology certificate curriculum meets the continuing educational needs of providers and users of services to older citizens. Applicants may be employees in the field of gerontology or elderly citizens themselves, hospital administrators, or students enrolled in other programs at the College.
