What is this course about?

CSU's Graduate Certificate in Gerontology is designed to provide an enhancement of knowledge and skills relevant to promoting the health and wellbeing of older people.

The Graduate Certificate in Gerontology focuses on the quality of life of older people, the importance of fostering their rights and dignity and ways of fulfilling their needs.

The course reflects the multidisciplinary nature of gerontology by offering a broadly based, yet integrative approach to major theoretical and practical issues associated with the ageing.

As there is a mid-year intake for the course, the enrolment pattern may vary from that stated. You should discuss the recommended enrolment pattern with your course coordinator.
