Master of Arts Program

Gerontology is the study of the process of human aging in all its aspects: physical, psychological, and social. In the School of Aging Studies, particular emphasis is placed on educating students who, in their professional careers, will work to sustain or improve the quality of life of older people.

The gerontology programs at the University of South Florida have a particular focus on applied gerontology. Students are encouraged to apply research on aging to clinical and policy issues that are of increasing importance in our aging society.

The School offers the Degree of Master's of Arts in Gerontology, which is able to be completed fully online. In addition to completing a required core curriculum, students may select elective courses suited to their interests and goals.

Please consult the USF Graduate Catalog for  information about academic policy,
