About the Master of Aging Services Management
The USC online Master of Aging Services Management (MASM) provides the opportunity for current and future aging services managers to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to respond to a rapidly growing population of older people. The program aims to prepare a knowledgeable and skilled workforce to successfully offer products, services and programs to older persons.
The aging services industries include residential care facilities, retirement communities, assisted living facilities, hospice care, home care and other home delivered services, as well as emerging services such as lifelong creative therapy programs and home modification programs. Students will be prepared to utilize their skills and respond effectively to changes in the economic, legal and regulatory environments in which they are employed.
