Want a career for life?
The world is witnessing tremendous growth of the population aged 65 and older:
- The oldest-old (85+) are proportionately the fastest growing segment of the population.
- By 2050, 1 in 4 people will be aged 65+.
Iowa is at the forefront of this aging revolution as one of the oldest states in the country. Older adults are a diverse group with varied backgrounds, preferences, and needs, and you can have a direct, immediate impact working with this population. The ISU Gerontology Program offers these degrees that provide a foundation for careers in aging:
Master's Degree in Gerontology (on campus)
