Certificate on Aging
Certificate in Aging Studies
The Aging Studies Project, in partnership with the School of Health Management, is happy to announce the pilot project for the ATSU Certificate in Aging Studies. The pilot project will offer scholarships to twenty-four students drawn from both campuses and will include students in clinical placements.
Application information will be provided shortly by SHM, and will also be provided on this website.
Students who complete the pilot project will receive a Certificate of Completion. The pilot project will be followed by the roll-out of the Certificate Program, which will provide five courses focused on health care for elders. Individuals who complete the pilot project will be able to apply their credits toward the full Certificate Program. Those who complete the Certificate in Aging Studies will be able to apply credits to an SHM Master's degree program in lieu of elective courses to the extent allowed by that program (e.g. MPH, MHA).
The pilot program will provide three elements: Two Master's level courses, and a field experience with elders.
- Exploring the Aging Process - this course will be offered by SHM from July 14 through September 21.
- The Continuum of Care - this course will be offered by SHM from September 29 through December 14.
- Field Experience with Elders - the schedule will be announced shortly. It will include direct service to elders under professional supervision.
