Students gain the knowledge and skills needed to effectively promote the health and well being of the growing population of baby boomers and older persons. Designed for students pursuing a master’s or doctoral program in the University System of Maryland or those who have previously earned a graduate degree from an accredited institution, the Graduate Certificate in Gerontology can be a valuable complement to many degree programs. The GGCP offers students an individually-tailored curriculum of course work, supervised internships and research. The Graduate Gerontology Certificate is awarded after all certificate and degree requirements (when applicable) are met.
