Undergraduate Gerontology Program

The Gerontology Program at Towson University offers an undergraduate degree program leading either to the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree.

The course work is multidisciplinary and provides students with an understanding of the scope of gerontology, the issues that are central to the study of aging, and a perspective from which students may understand the phenomenon of human aging and its implications on society.

The program is designed to prepare students for entry-level occupational positions in the field of aging and to provide the knowledge and skills necessary for graduate and professional schools.



All gerontology students complete at least one internship during their academic work. The settings available for an internship are diverse and reflect the changing field of aging services. Students have worked in area agencies on aging, state and federal agencies, residential settings, care management organizations, advocacy organizations and non-profits serving older adults and their families.
