As the number of elderly in the United States increases, so will the opportunities for professional careers in industries that support their needs. Qualified people will be needed to fill entry-level and management positions in:
• Housing and long-term residential care
• Community and social services
• Health care
• Recreation and fitness
• Administration of community based programs
As a part of the Gerontology Certificate, you'll complete an internship at an area agency that serves the elderly. The internship provides real-world learning opportunities and will introduce you to professional career opportunities. Plus, it's a great way to network and introduce you to professionals in the field of aging.
