A graduate gerontology certificate can be a way to begin to explore a new career or it can bring added value to an existing career. This eighteen-credit program can be taken either as a free-standing curriculum or be integrated with a graduate degree program at UMKC. Students from such diverse fields as social work, counseling, nursing, psychology, pharmacy, dental hygiene, sociology, law, architecture, and education have completed the certificate. Students should contact the Program Director to discuss enrollment and a plan of study. The certificate may also be integrated with the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies degree.
