Gerontology at CCSU
Why study gerontology?
The U.S. Department of Labor has identified careers in aging as a high-growth industry. Connecticut has the 7th oldest population in the nation, and by 2030, people over the age of 60 are expected to make up 26% of our state’s population. This translates into a growing demand for professionals who understand the opportunities, concerns, and needs associated with our aging population.
