Gerontology, the study of aging, is an exciting and rapidly growing, interdisciplinary and inter-professional field! People are living longer and healthier lives and knowledge about aging and older adults is important to everyone! Gerontology is essential not only for careers in Health and Human services, but also for everything from business and leisure to finances, education and politics! Through innovative and experiential learning approaches, the SCSU Gerontology Program www.stcloudstate.edu/gerontology helps prepare students with the skills and expertise needed to participate in the field of aging as professionals, leaders, and collaborative partners. The program is committed to fostering integrity, civic responsibility and recognition of the value in and working with a diverse and global community.
