The Gerontology Program provides an applied interdisciplinary approach to studying the human aging process and the challenges encountered by older adults and their families as they interact in contemporary society.
The Department of Gerontology curriculum was conceived and has evolved based on the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education (AGHE) nationally recognized gerontological program criteria and professional practice competencies. Using this organization's vision, national evidence based view, and competency criteria, has strengthened the program, assisted career definition in the field, and positioned the Sacramento State Program to be ready for program accreditation when it is mandated by the profession.
