UNCW's graduate gerontology programs offer distance education with a foundation of community engagement.
Students study the processes of aging. Although aging begins before birth, most people studying gerontology are concerned with changes in middle age and later life.It is concerned with the study of the body, intellectual ability, family relations, employment and retirement, health care, programs for seniors and many other aspects influencing aging.
This interdisciplinary program, housed in SHAHS, finds its students working in retirement communities, health care organizations, government agencies, community and human services and many other agencies and organizations concerned with the quality of life of older adults and the aging process.
