Gerontology is the multidisciplinary study of the aging processes and individuals as they grow from middle age through later life.Some gerontologists work directly with older persons in a wide variety of programs and services in the community. Others work on behalf of older persons in areas such as advocacy and teaching about aging.
Some use the certificate for continuing education credits or a career ladder opportunity. A graduate certificate can also be used to supplement a master's degree in another field.
