An Online Course Offered by the American Society on Aging and the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology
The University of Southern California is home to the oldest and largest school of gerontology in the world—the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology. ASA and USC have joined forces to offer a new opportunity—exclusively available to ASA members—to earn a Certificate of Completion in Advanced Concepts in an Aging Society from USC in a convenient and flexible online format.
Over the course of five-weeks, USC faculty will explain several advanced concepts related to our aging society and will provide important perspectives to help you understand some of the most pressing challenges the unprecedented aging of our population presents. Those who recognize what an aging society needs and desires will be at an advantage in business and industry as well as in the public policy arena.
