Certificate Programs

Students majoring in other areas can earn an Undergraduate Certificate in Aging or an Advanced Graduate Certificate in Gerontology through the Center on Aging.

Undergraduate Certificate in Aging

The undergraduate certificate requires 15 credits of approved gerontology courses in three different departments, three courses at the 300 level and two courses at or above the 400 level.

Advanced Graduate Certificate in Gerontology

The Advanced Graduate Certificate in Gerontology may be earned by taking 15 credits of course work in gerontology, at least 9 of which are at or above the 600 level. Courses must be in three different fields (e.g. public health, law, social work, sociology, etc.) and must include an interdisciplinary seminar in aging and a field study experience with a related paper. With permission, classified graduate students may double-count up to 6 credits with their major area of study.
Admission requirements include classified graduate status at UH Manoa or, for unclassified graduate students, a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution and aging-related work experience.

Post-Baccalaureate Certificate for Clinical Training

For students in medical technology, clinical training at affiliated clinical facilities follows graduation. A certificate is awarded at the completion of this training.
