Graduate School

Whether you want to make an impact directly by working with older adults and their families or indirectly through research, changing policy, or developing innovative technology to tackle the complex health and social challenges associated with growing older, a graduate degree from UMB is a great place to start.

Programs such as our graduate certificate in Aging & Applied Thanatology, our Master’s in Health and Social Innovation, and our PhD in Gerontology are designed to help you meet your career goals. Visit our website for a complete list of academic programs.

The Graduate School is also home to the Geriatrics & Gerontology Education and Research (GGEAR) program. Educational programs developed by GGEAR and its partners include online training modules through Geri-ED and interprofessional training opportunities such as the Geriatric Assessment Interdisciplinary Team (GAIT) program, in which students learn and work collaboratively in interprofessional settings.
