Gerontology at Cedar Crest

Gerontology at Cedar Crest

Our 17-credit Gerontology Certificate Program focuses on understanding the aging process and the relationship between the aged and society. The certificate program will prepare students to work in the field of gerontology to improve the quality of life of the older adult. The Cedar Crest College program challenges cultural stereotypes of the elderly with a focus on this stage of life as a period of creativity, radiance, spirituality and wisdom. This certificate is valuable for students pursuing a career in nursing, psychology, pastoral care, social work, nutrition or business.
