Internships and Careers

Did you know that all careers are careers in aging?  We are all aging every day and more of us are living into our later years.  Broadly, every career can be considered a career in aging! Find out about traditional and nontraditional careers in aging here.

According to the UNC Charlotte Career Center, “Experience is the #1 thing that employers seek in qualified candidates.” Students who concentrate or minor in gerontology at UNC Charlotte will complete 100 hours of experiential learning by completing the two required courses. Graduate Certificate students can add on a 150 hour practicum placement to their curriculum. The Career Center offers further opportunities for “Experiential Education.” Click here for more information.
