As the average age of our population increases, our communities have increasing need for skilled persons to work with and assist in caring for this older population. We have created the certificate in gerontology program to give you the skills you need to be prepared to work in this growing field.
Classes are taught by supportive university faculty who understand the importance of convenience and flexibility to working adults. Two courses are offered each term making it possible for you to complete the entire certificate in three semesters. Most classes are scheduled to meet on five Saturdays, however several classes (including electives and required courses), are available online.
Mode of Delivery
A blended learning approach is applied to course offerings (i.e., face-to-face and Web-based formats). Many classes are offered in the greater Indianapolis area.
