In the article, “Master’s Student Finds Perfect Pairing in Gerontology and Social Work,” Pacific Clinics Clinical Team Supervisor Irma Gonzalez talks about her journey through graduate school and finding her ideal career path working with older adults.
“This is rewarding work,” Irma says. “I feel like it’s my job to advocate for my clients and get them the support they need. … Having a degree that focuses on aging-related issues has been particularly useful in this work.”
Irma completed her dual Master of Science in Gerontology and Master of Social Work degrees in two years and is grateful for the support and guidance from her mentors at USC in helping achieve her goals.
