The Aging MSc program from Arizona State University addresses the multidimensional aging process, the needs of aging populations, and encourages community collaborations that are both beneficial and sustainable to improve overall well being.
Societies around the world struggle to address aging. According to the U.S. Census, 2035 will mark the first time older adults will outnumber children, while an estimated 5.6 million Americans over the age of 65 are living with Alzheimer’s disease. The demand has never been stronger for professionals specializing in aging across a wide range of disciplines, including social services and recreation, business development and product design, and health and long-term care.
Students in the MS for Aging can choose one of four areas to specialize in: Long Term Care Administration, Aging Services and Case Management, Palliative and End-of-Life Care, and Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
