The Faculty of Humanities of Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic is delighted to launch a new postgraduate program called “Longevity studies”.

A major patron of this program is the Centre of Expertise in Longevity and Long-term care, a member of the ILC–Global Alliance, and most of its experts will serve as mentors and lecturers.

This 4-year program is designed to appeal to all students who successfully complete a master degree in a broad range of specialties and who want to establish a foundation in issues of aging and apply it in their clinical or theoretical careers. The aim of the course is to help address the multidimensional and complex nature of lengthening human lifespan from various perspectives.

We are very proud to announce that this is the first and so far only postgraduate program in the Czech Republic that focuses on such an important, and at the same time challenging, topic.
