What Our Students Are Saying

“When I started the program, I thought I had an idea of what gerontology was about. After taking classes and interacting with my instructors and and classmates, I learned that there was a great deal more to know about the field. I have been working and interacting with various colleagues at other universities  and I am confident when I speak to them and have been able to inform them with regards to theories practices and policies thanks to Concordia University Chicago”

“While the Gerontology coursework was online, the professors made an effort to be accessible and to make the experience very personal. I appreciated the assistance that my professors provided to me in developing a career path that fits my interests and skill set.”

MA GERONTOLOGY


“I selected Concordia University Chicago specifically for their online gerontology program. It has allowed me flexibility in my professional work with elders and my family obligations, while pursuing this degree. This program and the support I have received in this program, has truly challenged me and prepared me to be a leader in the field of aging and as a social scientist. While I am not on a traditional academia track, I strongly believe that the skills and knowledge I have gained in this program will set me apart within long-term services and supports organizations.”
