Gerontology

The departments of Health Education and Social Sciences, Human Services and Criminal Justice offer the Associate of Science (A.S.) degree program in Gerontology. The curriculum includes lower division courses in health education, social sciences, humanities, biology and mathematics. This interdisciplinary program introduces students to career fields in aging; prepares students to enter the workforce to care for, treat and serve an increasingly needy aging population; and to ready students for transfer to senior colleges in academically rigorous disciplines such as gerontology, community health, public health, geriatric care management and health services administration. Students completing the A.S. degree in Gerontology can transfer seamlessly into the bachelor degree program at York College/CUNY without the loss of credits.
