Society is filled with older adults who are approaching their later years with energy and passion, as well as those who find themselves challenged by health, finance, or other issues. An MS in Gerontology from UIndy offers both breadth and depth in promoting a positive and holistic view of aging. This 100% online program equips students with the knowledge and skills to support, improve, and enhance the lives of the older adults in their communities.
The 100% online MS-HCM program, provides students with a solid understanding of skills necessary to become successful in healthcare management. The program offers a long-term care and a home and community-based track. The long-term care management concentration is for students looking to work as administrators in skilled healthcare, assisted-living, and residential care facilities, while the home and community-based care track prepares students for positions in hospice, home healthcare and outpatient care centers.
