Graduate Programs

The Graduate Programs at UNC Charlotte are both interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary, in that they integrate materials from various disciplines and require students to study aging from a variety of disciplinary perspectives.

The Master of Arts in Gerontology is designed to prepare graduates with the knowledge and skills to fill a wide variety of positions in the developing field of aging.  

The Graduate Certificate Program in Gerontology is designed to provide supplementary graduate education in Gerontology for those who already have a graduate degree in another field or those completing a graduate degree

in another field, who are interested in working with older adults. It requires the completion of a set of core and elective courses related to the study of aging.
