Gerontology, Doctoral/PhD

See Program Details, Dates & Deadlines

The Doctoral Program in Gerontology is an intercampus, interdisciplinary research degree program at the University of Maryland Baltimore (UMB) and University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC).

The program provides an interdisciplinary and integrative perspective on the process of human aging and the experiences of growing old. The approach acknowledges the complex, dynamic, and bi-directional relationships among individuals and the historical, political, economic, environmental, psychological, social, cultural and biological contexts in which aging occurs. The goal of the program is to train a new generation of gerontology scholars conversant with interdisciplinary and integrative paradigms and research designs employed to examine the unique, reciprocal, and dynamic nature of aging in context.
