Gerontology Certificate Program

Ramapo College also offers a Certificate in Gerontology Program for people not currently enrolled in a degree program or who already work in the field of gerontology and wish to enhance their knowledge and skills to become more effective practitioners. Matriculated students (seeking a degree) must complete the Gerontology minor.

The course requirements for the Certificate are the same as the Gerontology minor (see the Gerontology Minor section of this Catalog).

Since increasing numbers of Americans are living longer, there is a need for people trained in understanding the complex interaction between aging and society.

Gerontology, the interdisciplinary study of the social, physical, and biological dimensions of aging, is concerned with creating environments for successful aging while maintaining quality life experiences.

Gerontology is not only an academic area of study, it is also a field of practice which involves the determination of public policy issues and the delivery of human services. The study of gerontology can benefit volunteer or service workers presently in agencies serving the aged, those considering such careers, and individuals seeking greater understanding of the aging process and social condition.

This certificate program is offered by the School of Social Science and Human Services. For further information, contact Professor Peggy McLaughlin, Program Director, at (201) 684-7625 or 684-7626.
