ABOUT THE PROGRAM

This program aims to prepare students for entry-level professional positions in the management of aging services. The undergraduate major provides a strong knowledge base in human aging; an understanding of regulatory/policy/fiscal issues involved in aging service provision; and fundamental management skills (i.e., accounting, human resources, critical thinking, and negotiation). Many Public Health majors go directly into the workforce after graduation. Students have gone on to work in the non-clinical medical setting in hospitals and care facilities, government organizations, nonprofit organizations, and private healthcare-related jobs.
