Programs on Aging
Rutgers School of Social Work's Programs on Aging are committed to training and developing a gerontological workforce that is prepared to provide leadership and demonstrate excellence in meeting the challenges and maximizing the strengths of an aging population.
There are two cornerstones of Rutgers SSW's Programs on Aging: our Aging and Health certificate program and the MSW Fellowship in Aging.
The certificate program is embedded within the master's curriculum, as it allows students to complete the standard MSW coursework, while focusing their efforts on aging and health. As part of the Program's commitment to fostering excellence in social work, students who show exceptional dedication in their work in aging and health are selected for the fellowship program.
