The Senior Living Management Bachelor of Science degree is an interdisciplinary program that combines the art and science of Hospitality Management with Aging Studies and Health Care Management. The undergraduate degree program is designed to adapt the culture and philosophy of hospitality to the senior living industry, meeting a call from industry leaders that understand that a culture of hospitality presents a strategic advantage for senior living communities by enhancing the overall experience of the residents.
The objective of the program is to prepare its graduates for managerial positions in the senior living industry. This degree program does not require a medical or nursing degree. There is no patient care involved, just management of all aspects of a home or community. The major components focus on courses in hospitality management, healthcare management, and gerontology.
The Senior Living Management degree program focuses on developing business acumen and management skills for independent and assisted living housing, and continuous care retirement communities where hospitality services are important components. UCF Rosen College is currently accepting applications for potential students who have the passion to work in the senior living management sector.
