Gerontology Certificate Program

The Gerontology Certificate Program at North Georgia College & State University is designed to enable students at the undergraduate and graduate level, non-degree students, and residents of the community to obtain a certificate in 2-3 semesters of course work. Students will complete a total of fifteen (15) semester hours of upper level undergraduate or graduate level courses to meet the requirements of the certificate program. Twelve (12) of the hours must arise from the four certificate courses. These four courses are the Survey of Aging, the Biology of Aging, the Sociology of Aging, and the Psychology of Aging. An additional three hours is completed as a clinical or research practicum. For additional information, contact The Department of Nursing.
