Gerontology Program

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.
