The gerontology certificate program consists of two required courses:
GERON 775 Perspectives in Gerontology (3 credits, fall)
LSHD 845 Adult Development and Aging (3 credits, spring)
Remaining classes (9 credits) in the program can be taken from other core courses or electives that are part of the online gerontology master's program, or courses that may be offered online or on campus at the student's home institution in the Great Plains IDEA course matrix. Approval of electives is required by the student's home institution advisor.
Up to 3 hours of practicum experience may be included in the certificate program but is not required.
