The Interprofessional Graduate Certificate Program in Gerontology is designed to increase the knowledge, skills and abilities of health and human service professionals who provide care to older adults in a variety of settings.

This 9-credit program, offered via distance-education technology, will meet the needs of working professionals who, because of the rapidly aging population, find themselves caring for a growing number of older adults and their caregivers.

Graduates of the certificate program will be prepared to function as members of interprofessional teams to effectively address the health and human service needs of an increasingly diverse aging population.

Graduate Certificate Program admission requirements include a baccalaureate degree in any field with a GPA 2.75 or higher.  Individual courses in the certificate program may be taken as electives by graduate students from any program. In addition, students who are enrolled in an undergraduate program may request permission of the instructor to take individual courses.

 More detailed information on the certificate program can be found at umaine.edu/gerontology.
