Certificate in Gerontology
Laboure College

Program Details

With our population aging and humans living longer, there is a growing need for professional elder care.  Help meet this demand with the online gerontology degree which focuses on the study of aging and care for older adults.  Examine aging from bio-psycho-social perspectives while also gaining insight into your own aging process.  Learn about such topics as:

  • Health disparities that impact aging
  • Health equity goals
  • Continuum of care for older adults
  • Funding sources for older adults
  • Challenges facing older adults’ health

In as little as six months you can earn your degree and begin working in almost any industry since understanding older adults’ needs is a skill that transfers outside of healthcare.
