Careers of the Month: September 2009 Edition

Each month, we try to profile two specific careers and provide students with more information about them. If you want to see past entries (e.g., occupational therapist, school psychologist), click on the “Career Options” link on our Topics menu. This month, we are trying something a little different and providing information about one entire category of different careers: the gerontology field.

Gerontology: Many of our Human Development and Psychology students are interested in working with older adults. Never considered a career in gerontology before? Well, here’s your chance to consider that possibility! Visit the Gerontological Society of America website ( and/or their pamphlet on career options in the field ( to learn about many different career paths in that area.
