The Aging Studies program will give you the tools to make a difference for the older population in your current profession or prepares you to transition your career/area of interest to the aging service industry. The expertise gained is valuable for a range of professions (e.g. social work, senior living, senior services, nursing home administration, wellness, business, education, and clinical professionals).
