The online Master of Science in Gerontology provides the knowledge and expertise students need to improve the quality of life for older adults through an interdisciplinary program that gives students a knowledge base that increases their abilities to fulfill leadership roles in the public and private sectors. The curriculum maximizes understanding of the interconnectedness of the bio-psycho-socio-spiritual aspects of aging, helping students become advocates for elders and gain a better understanding of the complex interrelations among aging, health, and social structure. Courses also teach students skills in assessing, interpreting, and applying gerontological research findings and in communicating gerontological concepts.
