Program: MASTER'S CERTIFICATE
The University of South Carolina offers an interdisciplinary gerontology certificate housed in the College of Social Work. For students interested in long term care administration, the School of Public Health's Department of Health Administration incorporates the Certificate of Graduate Study in Gerontology into both the Master of Health Administration (M.H.A.) and its Master in Public Health (M.P.H.) Applicants must apply to the desired degree program and to the certificate program.
The M.H.A. program is designed for those interested in institutional management in the health car field which in combination with the certificate requires 75 semester hours in toto for both credentials. Where projects and reports are required by course instructors, LTC focused efforts are expected of these students. Residency and Practicum requirements respectively are coordinated by the Graduate Director in consultation with the Director of the Gerontology Certificate Program.
