Master of Science in Applied Gerontology


The Master of Science in Applied Gerontology programme provides a holistic and advanced education in the rapidly expanding field of gerontology. It is designed to provide you with in-depth knowledge, skills and experience to work with older people.

This graduate programme offers a truly interdisciplinary curriculum with an Asian focus. Taught by faculty from medicine, social sciences, communication, business, engineering, arts and humanities, and biological sciences, our courses not only equip you with the foundational competencies of gerontology, but also train you to design policies, develop leadership capacities, innovate and enhance care services for an ageing population.
