General information 

Gerontology defines the comprehensive study of the aging process and the problems connected with it. Thus, within your Master of Gerontology you learn to regard aging not only as a natural, but as a scientific phenomenon. You focus on the societal meaning of aging, for instance, on how aging changes the social and human capital of a society. As people grow to ever higher ages today, the societal, political, economic, and health consequences are manifold.

Using tools from natural and social sciences alike, you learn how politics attempt to deal with aging, how production lines need to be adapted to an ever-aging personnel, or how the health sector attempts to cover the many challenges an aging society creates.

The universities apply different admission criteria and application procedures. Nevertheless, we list attractive places to study below helping you to narrow down your study plans.
