Gerontology

The world’s oldest and largest school of gerontology, the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology has a long tradition of forging new paths in the field of aging. The Master of Science in Gerontology prepares graduates to assume leadership positions in the delivery of services to older people and their families, planning and evaluation of services, and administration of programs.

Course work is usually completed over two years (four semesters). Students must choose either the Department of Social Change and Innovation or the Department of Adult Mental Health and Wellness. Students take courses in both schools concurrently. View below a breakdown of the MSW/MS curriculum schedule, and visit the application process page for instructions on how to apply.
