The field of medicine and healthcare is projected to be a fast growing industry well into the
21st century. This growth is driven in part by the high proportion of the
population that will be reaching retirement age and beyond in the coming years. By completing the Certificate in the Sociology of Medicine and Aging, you will develop special insight into the various
intersections between medicine/healthcare and the aging process.
The Certificate in the Sociology of Medicine and Aging is available on campus as well as
online through the Virtual College. For more information, contact Dr. Pelgy Vaz (email@example.com), who coordinates this certificate program.
Please Note: It is the responsibility of the student to
inform the coordinator of the certificate program that he or she has completed
the certificate requirements. Your certificate will not be awarded until you

coordinator of same. To ensure there is enough time to process your certificate,
please inform your coordinator by the 21st day of the semester in which the
certificate is to be awarded.

courses necessary to meet the certificate requirements. The student may
then paste that copied text that is his/her unofficial transcript into
an e-mail message to the certificate coordinator. The student's e-mail
note to the certificate coordinator should begin with an expression of
