Each student in the Gerontology Master's Program is required to complete a professional field experience in the aging field. Advanced Gerontology Certificate students are welcome to complete this experience as an elective. This experience is meant to provide additional hands-on experience for those who are relatively new to the field or to broaden the experience of those with extensive practical experience working with older adults. Each student will work with his/her adviser to design a Practicum which will meet his/her specific needs. Sites must have an Affiliation Agreement with the Gerontology Program. Check with the Program Director regarding this.
Please refer to the Gerontology Graduate Practicum Handbook for complete guidelines.
