Certificates in Aging
Welcome to Rutgers School of Social Work's Certificates in Aging. For over forty years, we have been committed to developing a gerontological workforce that is prepared to provide leadership and demonstrate excellence in supporting adults as they age.
By 2034, the United States Census projects that the number of people age 65 and older will surpass the number of children under the age of 18. Moreover, the U.S. Department of Labor has projected that social work jobs in health will increase more quickly than in any other area of social work, in large part because of the aging of our population. Therefore, students and professionals with passion and skills in social work and aging will continue to be in high demand as the population continues to live longer.
Our school offers several opportunities to learn more about the aging experience and best practices when working with older adults and their communities.
