What is Gerontology?

Gerontology is the study of the ageing processes and individuals as they grow from middle-age through later life, and includes:

  • the application of this knowledge to policies and programs.
  • the study of physical, mental and social changes in older people as they age
  • the investigation of the changes in society resulting from our ageing population

This course prepares students for a career in aged care. It is compatible with students who have an existing TAFE Diploma in a related area, and who want to either change careers or for students that want to upgrade their formal qualifications to a degree.

This course introduces students to the challenges and issues of ageing withing the context of a social model of health, human rights as well as individual and community development.
