Welcome to Gerontology. 

Together, with the Gerontology Research Centre, the Department serves as a focal point for research, education and information on individual and population aging. We offer a Minor, Diploma, Masters, and Ph.D. with concentrations in 'environment and aging' or 'health and aging'. Courses  take place at SFU’s downtown Vancouver campus.
