  • Course description
    The Master of Science degree in Gerontology requires completion of 36 semester hours (12 credit hours in core courses, a 3-credit independent learning component, 15 credit hours in electives, and a 6-credit hour Thesis or extended Capstone Project). Note that the internship must be chosen to fulfill the independent learning requirement if the student does not have experience working with an older population. However, students with significant documented and verifiable experience working with an older population can request that this experience be reviewed and credit earned for life experience.

    Additionally, upon completion of required course work, students are required to complete a written comprehensive examination to illustrate mastery of the material.
