The world’s oldest and largest school of gerontology, the USC 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 Community, Organization, and Business Innovation or the Department of Adults and Healthy Aging. Students take courses in both schools concurrently.
