Bachelor of Science in Gerontology (BScG)
Ceased admission since 2022
Our School had ceased admission for the BSCG programme since 2022-2023. For current admission details, please visit the JC School of Public Health and Primary Care.
Graduates of the programme can pursue a career in aged care services, or seek employment in a wide range of social and healthcare settings, such as geriatric outreach teams, elderly community centres, day care centres, rehabilitation units and residential care homes. They can start their career as multi-skilled practitioners in aged care, planning and implementing such evidence-based care models, as well as participating in service administration, evaluation and reengineering. Graduates with good academic results can also pursue postgraduate studies in a variety of disciplines, such as gerontology, public health, health service management, health administration, and health education.
According to our 2020/21 BScG graduate survey, most of our graduates began their careers in aged care services upon graduation:
