GR 240 - Social and Cultural Aspects to Aging

3 Credit Hours
This course explores the mutual relationship between society and those considered older by society. Also examined are the social and cultural forces that impact on the aging process, including social constructs images of older adults, and patterns of inequality related to one’s gender, race, and/or economic status. Emphasis is placed on current critical aging-related issues and how these issues are experienced personally and societally. Students are challenged to critically analyze prevailing assumptions and perspective on aging and how these impact older adults, family members, and society.
