With the rapid aging of the population along with the consequences this brings to nearly every sector of our lives, it is important to prepare for the ways in which population changes will change our world.  Studying gerontology can prepare students to understand and address the challenges of an aging world.  UMKC offers gerontology programs at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. 

For more information about Gerontology and our programs, please see our website.
