About this Course


This course draws upon material from many of the social sciences to examine the range and variation in institutions, attitudes and cultural values related to aging. We’ll focus on the social and economic factors that influence elders in different cultures. You’ll learn about the effects of ethnic and sex differences on aging and cross-cultural variations in the perception and treatment of older adults.
