1 Gerontology Concentration Brief Description The Gerontology Concentration aims to provide social work students with the knowledge and skills to be leaders in advancing social and economic justice for older adults and their families. The concentration provides students with the expertise for working with older adults, their families, the aging service delivery system, and the aging society. Graduating students are employed in both the public and private sectors. Some graduates work primarily serving older adults and their families in traditional settings such as adult day care centers, assisted living and skilled nursing facilities, hospitals, and home health agencies. Others work in administrative organizations like local, state, and federal agencies overseeing home and community based service programs or engaging in policy advocacy for older adults. A growing number are working in newer areas such as health and wellness, productive engagement, and retirement planning. The Gerontology concentration is broad in scope, designed with the intent to provide a solid foundation in gerontological scholarship and practice skills. The Gerontology concentration has six courses designated as part of the required curriculum, with different tracks for students choosing to specialize in administrative practice and direct practice. All students in the concentration take the one required theory course, S Theories and Issues in Aging, in which they increase their knowledge of current issues in aging as well as learn to apply empirically-supported aging theories to practice. All students in the concentration also take the one required policy course, S Social Policy and Aging. In this course, they learn to critically analyze major social policies and to articulate how social policies related to aging are formulated and influenced. Clinical practice students take three required methods courses in the concentration; administrative practice students take one required concentration practice course and two courses selected from a list of administrative options. Clinical practice students are required to take: S Biopsychosocial Assessments and Interventions with Older Adults, S Social Work Practice in the Continuum of Care, and S Development of Programs and Services for an Aging Society. Administrative practice students are required to take: S Development of Programs and Services for an Aging Society and any two of the following: S Personnel Management and Supervision, S Budgeting and Fiscal Management, S Leadership, Planning, and Decision- Making, S Social Entrepreneurship, or S Marketing, Resource Development, and Community Relations. Students in the Gerontology concentration are allowed to take one of two different evaluation courses to fulfill their concentration evaluation requirement: S Social Policy and Analysis, or S Evaluation of Programs and Services. Competencies Concentration courses are designed to prepare students to obtain competence in 10 areas. Competencies are measured by practice behaviors that are detailed on each course syllabi as appropriate to the content. 1. Identify as a professional social worker and conduct oneself accordingly.
