Gerontology Classes at Foothill College


Gerontology is the study of aging. The courses introduce students to the continuum of characteristics, abilities and needs of older adults, the policies and services that are available, and the skills needed to be effective in working in aging programs. The courses can be taken for individual interest or professional development, and some are offered for continuing education units.
