SXU offers new degree completion program in gerontology studies


Are you looking for a rewarding career that involves working with older adults? If so, look no further than one of Saint Xavier University's (SXU) new degree completion programs!

With classes offered online, hybrid and face-to-face, Gerontology Studies combines the study of aging with various aspects of nursing, business, psychology, sociology and even art and film. Students in the program can expect to gain a vast understanding of how the human body and brain age, while learning how each different discipline contributes to the aging process.

During the course of the program, students are exposed to a variety of areas in which they can use their Gerontology Studies degree. By taking this holistic approach to education, SXU students will give themselves a competitive edge in earning their degrees and finding a fulfilling career.

Program Highlights:

  • The program is designed to be taught in a hybrid setting (both in-person and online meetings).
  • Students are exposed to disciplines outside of Gerontology Studies, which allows them to find a career that they are passionate about.
  • Students complete a capstone project designed to specifically meet their intended career choice.
  • Once completed, students will have learned a lifetime of experiences through communicating and understanding older adults.
