Typical Adult and Gerontology Track Schedule

The curriculum plan shown below is based on a four-year program prior to internship. However, most students elect to complete the program over a five year period before going on internship. This permits additional electives, research experience, and greater progress on the dissertation prior to the internship. The program strongly strongly encourages completion of the dissertation prior to internship.
