NDSU has scheduled a free online information session for individuals interested in earning a master’s degree in gerontology.

The session is scheduled for Tuesday, May 20, at 11:30 a.m. Attendees can participate in a discussion about NDSU’s online master’s in human development and family science gerontology option and the online gerontology graduate certificate.

Participants can ask questions and learn the program’s admission requirements. Speakers will include Heather Fuller-Iglesias, doctoral student in NDSU’s gerontology program, and Joel Hektner, coordinator of graduate programs for the NDSU Department of Human Development and Family Science.

Statistics from the Census Bureau indicate that in 2030 nearly one in five U.S. residents is expected to be 65 or older. Specialized knowledge and skills will be needed to meet the needs of this changing demographic.

The information session is free, but preregistration is required. To register, or for more information about the program, visit ndsu.me/dcemsg  or call 701-231-7015.
