New Courses and Programs in Aging

Humber College is now accepting applications for the Ontario College Graduate Certificate in Gerontology!

The Gerontology program, offered at Humber College through the School of Social and Community Services – in collaboration with the School of Health Sciences - has a strong focus on both theoretical and practical aspects of practice. Working from a bio-psycho-social-spiritual approach to the study of aging, the certificate encompasses a wide range of topic areas relevant to persons working with or on behalf of older persons.

This program will offer students an inter-professional learning environment for the study of current aging theory and practice. The goal of the program will be to prepare students to work effectively with older adults in a variety of settings.

For Admission and Application instruction, please visit the Humber College Website.
