As the world’s population continues to age, many opportunities and challenges present themselves. Issues society faces as the population ages are dealt with in the Indiana State University Gerontology Certificate program. Students are prepared with the knowledge and experience necessary to succeed in age-related careers, from psychology to recreation and sports management to nursing. Aging is both a personal experience and a social phenomenon and is addressed at all ecological levels.
Note that practical experiences must be completed in a setting that serves older adults. Upon completion of the practical experience, students must submit a reflection paper to the gerontology program director.
