Abstract In this study, graduates of bachelor's and master's degree programs in gerontology completed the Standardized Survey Instrument for Graduates of Gerontology Programs developed by the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education. In addition, employers were surveyed about the level of gerontological knowledge, skills, and work performance of these graduates. Findings suggest differences between master's and bachelor's degree graduates with regard to sources used to obtain positions, types of employment found, and job duties. Employers reported that the majority of the graduates had high levels of gerontology knowledge and skills and exhibited high performance levels in working for or with older adults.
