The Business and Social Sciences Division at Foothill College presents a
Career Certificate in Gerontology
Gerontology is the study of aging. The courses introduce students to the
continuum of characteristics, abilities and needs of older adults, the
policies and services that are available, and the skills needed to be
effective in working in aging programs. The courses can be taken for
individual interest or professional development, and some are offered
for continuing education units.

Graduates of the program will be qualified to provide services to

information and referral, recreational programs, and, in combination
with other training, geriatric health services.
