AGHE, the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education, was consulted for curriculum guidelines and standards. Marywood's former Certificate in Gerontology received an AGHE Program of Merit accreditation, making it the only school in the Northeast to offer such a program.

The Research Theory course, Internship, and Professional Contribution must focus on gerontology research and practice. The program director must approve and mentor these activities. The internship should be within an organization and/or facility which includes experiences with both well-functioning older persons and those with disabilities/diseases common to the aging process.

For the internship, learning objectives must be submitted initially, followed by a conference among student, program director, and external preceptor. Once all learning objectives are clarified and reviewed, the student may register for the experience.

For degree requirements, the Professional Contribution requires a written proposal submitted to the Program Director for approval, followed by a conference prior to registration. Each student participates in the Practitioners Seminar to integrate/apply knowledge and practice. Please refer to Internship Guidelines and Professional Contribution, which are available in the School of Social Work.
