Welcome to Gerontology
Gerontology is the study of the biological, psychological, and sociological phenomena associated with old age and aging.
The Graduate Gerontology Certificate was reactivated in the Spring 2008. The Gerontology program also offers a Minor in Gerontology to undergraduate students. The newly revised and updated program is multidisciplinary and designed to complement studies in a variety of other disciplines.
What opportunities are available to students?
Because of our location in the capital city, Little Rock, students have immediate access to hands on learning through our affiliations with organizations such as Arkansas State Hospital, Central Arkansas Veteranâ€™s Health Administration, UAMS and other area agencies.
Welcome to this â€śboomingâ€ť area of study!
