Certificate in Gerontology
As the scientific study of aging, the Graduate Certificate in Gerontology at Webster University will help to expand your marketability and skills in the field by providing a broad educational base concerning factors related to the aging of individuals and society.
By 2030, seniors are projected to account for nearly 20% of the U.S. population. Designed to develop and enhance the managerial and administrative skills of the practitioner, this certificate gives professionals economic, cultural and managerial insight into this growing demographic.
The program was developed on the premise that students and professionals in a variety of disciplines and professions have the greatest potential to meet the pressing needs of the aged and our changing society, provided they are given the requisite training in the application of gerontological knowledge.
All certificate courses must be taken at Webster University. Students may pursue the certificate by itself or integrate their certificate studies with an MA degree program. Students enrolled in the MA degree program in gerontology are not eligible to receive the gerontology certificate.
