PhD in Social Gerontology

Our doctoral program encourages students to integrate knowledge and research methods from a range of behavioral and social sciences in their study of social gerontology. Our program - the first in the state of Ohio, and among the first in the nation -  builds the cadre of scholars and educators necessary to meet the challenges, demands, and opportunities presented by global aging. Graduates of the doctoral program will be prepared to both teach and conduct research in institutions of higher education, and/or hold positions in policy or service organizations.

Our program:

  • Provides associateships to full-time students (tuition waivers with stipends) based on academic qualifications and availability of funds

  • Supports international study and research opportunities for interested students

  • Creates an intellectual environment by encouraging critical thinking and engaged learning

  • Offers students administrative, policy and research experiences that impact the lives of aging adults

  • Helps students establish networks for professional development and career planning
