Societal aging is accompanied by a host of challenges, including how to provide care, income, and engagement opportunities for a growing population of older people. By examining societal trends related to aging students gain an understanding of how different societies adapt to these new challenges. Other topics may include: work and retirement, health, care work and family, death and dying, and changing patterns of inequality with age. This course is the same as SOC 304, and course repeat rules will apply. Students should consult with their major department regarding any restrictions on their degree requirements.
