Where to obtain a Masters Degree in Gerontology?

I am looking for any recommendations of good schools to attend to receive my masters in gerontology? I will receive my social work degree (BSW) in may, and am looking at grad school. I have searched and found a lot, but am looking for any recommendations.


Elima: thanks for all the listings they are wonderful! Yes I know what gerontology consists of, that is why I am hoping to obtain my masters in the field. My internship this year is at an assisted living facility and I love working there. I feel as if obtaining my masters in gerontology would help me to become a more effective social worker within this specific area. My college used to have a minor in gerontology but cut the program because not many students were interested.

    dear You know Gerontology is the physical, mental, and sociological study of aging. It includes the study of changes in adults as they age, the ways that society changes with an aging population, and the ways we apply this information to programs and policies for older adults. A degree in gerontology prepares the student for careers working with older adults or as advocates for the elderly.
