Online Bachelor's Degree In Gerontology

Gerontology is the science of helping people as they age, physically, emotionally, and intellectually. It can involve research into the study of diseases that affect the elderly, such as Alzheimer's, or can be about helping specific people at a nursing home or hospital.

At an online or traditional university, a gerontology bachelor's degree includes courses in:

  • Counseling
  • Gerontology management
  • Nursing
  • Physical therapy
  • Psychology of aging

You need to have good people skills for this field, which makes many people assume they should attend a traditional university instead of an online one. But with today's technology, this simply isn't the case. Coursework for an online degree provides just as much interaction through virtual classrooms, over the phone, in chat rooms, or even in group work with others who live near you. It also means you can attend a university in a different part of the country or world, but still undertake an internship in your own neighborhood.
