Gerontology minor earns top recognition

August 11, 2011

McDaniel’s minor in Gerontology has earned the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education’s (AGHE) seal of approval, Program of Merit, the highest award that an academic program in the field can receive. Only 11 other programs across the country have the recognition.

The designation was two years in the making, says Diane Martin, visiting assistant professor of Gerontology and academic director of The Center for the Study of Aging at McDaniel College, and comes only after a comprehensive review by AGHE.

In awarding the status, AGHE noted that the program has strong faculty with diverse skills, a well organized curriculum with diverse course offerings, substantial student support, leadership that puts forth innovative ideas for growth while sharing a common mission and vision for advancement.

McDaniel offers both a master’s degree and a certificate in Gerontology on the graduate level, as well as the minor in Gerontology for undergraduate students and a five-year B.A./M.S. program in Gerontology, all through its Center for the Study of Aging.
