Graduate Interdisciplinary Specialization in Aging

The Graduate Interdisciplinary Specialization in Aging is a University-wide program that provides graduate and professional students the opportunity to expand their knowledge, skills, and attitudes to meet the needs of our nationís growing older adult population.

Students must apply to enroll in the program and must satisfactorily complete at least 21 hours of graduate course work from the Master List of Courses, which includes:

  • Nine (9) credit hours from the core curriculum
  • Courses from two or more graduate programs outside the studentís major program
  • Up to six (6) credit hours may be in approved independent study from the Master List of Courses

The required core curriculum, an integrated series of four courses, focuses on basic components of gerontology shared by many professions. Students then choose from a wide range of elective courses to complete the 21-hour requirement. Successful completion of the Specialization in Aging is noted on studentsí transcripts.
