SAGE Program is Another Aging Education Opportunity for Students--The Convenience of Distance EducationThe SAGE Program (Series In Applied Gerontology Education) is a three-course distance learning program in aging. Throughout the series of internet-based courses, special attention is devoted to issues of social, cultural, and ethnic diversity. All students successfully completing SAGE receive a Certificate of Completion in Gerontology from The Ohio State University. SAGE is appropriate for students wishing to serve the older adult population as administrators, regulators, policy makers, direct service providers, program evaluators, and others caring for our aging population. Internet-based courses allow students the flexibility of learning "where and when it's convenient," accommodating busy professional and personal lifestyles.
