Mission

With the increase in older adult populations in Oregon and across the globe, trained professionals in a broad array of career fields will need to understand the physical, cognitive, and social changes that occur as we age.  Our Gerontology:  Aging and Older Adulthood Certificate will help students learn more about aging in context; develop important competencies related to organizations and businesses that serve older adults; and enhance their career and graduate school outcomes.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Explain the cognitive, physical, and social changes associated with older adulthood
  2. Identify how an understanding of aging complements career paths
