Undergraduate Programs

Being part of the Gerontology Institute has been a wonderful experience…. My internship with Senior Services at Grady Memorial Hospital helped me realize that I want a career where I can directly communicate and help older adults. And during my time with the Gerontology Institute, I gained a network of people who are supportive, knowledgeable and truly enjoy what they do.” - Elizabeth Avent

The Gerontology Institute offers students two options for combining their major field of study with an emphasis in gerontology, an 18-semester hour Certificate in Gerontology or a 15-semester hour Interdisciplinary Minor in Gerontology.

Although the programs are similar, the certificate program incorporates an internship and is often chosen by students planning careers in the field of aging.

Both programs provide students with specialized knowledge needed to live and work in today’s aging society. For more information about the programs, please contact Dr. Chivon Mingo, Director of Undergraduate Studies, at
