Gerontology blog collage

Madonna University’s Department of Aging Studies is committed to preparing its students to address the concerns of an aging population, and to promote the potential of people in their later years through its gerontology curriculum, field placements, and role in the aging services community serving older adults in Southeastern Michigan. This blog complements our mission, by providing fresh ideas and perspectives on aging contributed by those in our gerontology community, including current students, as well as alumni, current and former faculty, field placement supervisors, and others from the community who are committed to the business of aging.

40YrsAgingStudiesIn honor of our 40th Anniversary, we’ve reviewed and revised our programs and changed our name to Department of Aging Studies.  By the end of the year, we’ll have the 9 credit hour, online Aging and Older Adult Certificate of Completion revised, and we will have launched a new online program, the 11 credit hour Dementia Care Certificate of Completion.  We’re also researching a graduate credential in Aging Studies.  We’re asking people interested in the field to take our online survey of background and interest, so that we can develop relevant programs.  You can use the embedded link or this URL to access the survey:  http://madonna.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_cGg28onHopAvPYV

    We are a group of mainly but not exclusively Applied Positive Psychologists (MAPP) and have just started a new non-profit website thepositivepsychologypeople.com we will be starting a section on positive aging and would welcome any comments, articles or contribution. Please look at the website to see if it interests you. We already have 4 universities working with us (UK, Malta, Portugal, Dubai) as will become apparent in the next few weeks. Our aim is to connect, inspire, share, learn and educate. Thank you
