Master of Science in Applied Gerontology

The program requires 36 semester hours. Graduate courses in gerontology focus on the seminar method of teaching and learning. Students will be required to do literature searches, to gain information from journals as well as some textbooks, and bring their findings to class to share with other students and the faculty. Although some courses will involve lecture presentations, students must be self-directed in their studies and seek information appropriately. Service-learning opportunities are also part of the curriculum. Each student will complete a gerontology practicum.
