Life Span Studies


The objective of this graduate certificate program is to train both traditional and non-traditional graduate students, so their career opportunities are increased in both for-profit and non-profit settings, including governmental agencies, academia, and companies in the health, service, and manufacturing sectors by providing them the ability to earn a Certificate in Life Span Studies. This program will foster interdisciplinary education and will support a national demand to deal with changes in demographics around the US. 

The students participating in this certification program will come from traditional departments within LSU’s College of Human Sciences and Education, and College of Humanities and Social Sciences, as well as departments within other colleges of LSU. Furthermore, the program also serves non-traditional students from local agencies in the service and health sectors, companies in these sectors, and in the manufacturing sector. This program is highly interdisciplinary, involving faculty who are affiliated with the Life Course and Aging Center at LSU and whose tenure resides in the Department of Psychology, Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, the School of Kinesiology, and the School of Social Work.
