NASHVILLE, Tenn., July 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- OnlineSchoolsCenter.com has recently released their list of the Top 15 Online Schools for Master's Degrees in Gerontology, a comprehensive list of the finest online schools offering graduate-level gerontology programs.
You may view the list, along with a description of the benefits of each institution, by clicking the link below:
According to the Administration for Community Living, in the next 25 years, the number of American citizens over the age of 65 will represent 20% of the population. This means that the number of educated individuals within the field of gerontology should subsequently increase as well to provide senior citizens with proper healthcare, counseling, advocacy, and rights, as well as other resources. The AACL's prediction makes this a perfect time to advance one's degree to a Master's of Gerontology, which is a crucial and fulfilling career path.
These fifteen institutions provide students with extremely compelling coursework. Delivering information that is most-relevant to today's industries, these curricula give students real-world opportunities to practice learned information in a safe space. Students accrue many valuable skills in administration, ethics, healthcare, advocacy, financing, in old-age environments. Students go on to work in nursing homes, healthcare facilities, hospitals, private practices, research facilities, and more, providing the aging population with safe, ethical assistance.
According to lead researcher and writer, Rowan Jones, "Entering this field is an incredibly admirable pursuit, and provides society with answers to very difficult questions concerning the aging of oneself and of loved ones. Providing solutions to the myriad disadvantages of aging, these students go on to provide a service that is soon to be in need of competent, educated professionals."
