Welcome to the Iowa State University Gerontology Program
There are more people over the age of 65 alive today than any other period in history. The U.S. Census Bureau projects that the number of older persons will surpass the number of children within 10 years.
The ISU Gerontology Program applies a cross-section of university-wide disciplines to the study of aging to prepare graduates in diverse areas of a profession with almost unlimited growth and reach.
Deadline for applications for fall 2023
Priority deadline to apply for the fall 2023 graduate programs is February 15, 2023. Learn about our master's and doctoral degrees and how to apply.
