This course explores the sociological aspects of aging – how do the elderly affect
society and how does society affect the elderly in the age of coronavirus? We
examine the interaction of the elderly with society and with many of our social
institutions such as religion, healthcare, government, and the economy amid the
pandemic. We look at the issues associated with our aging population and how
those issues affect people of all ages. We examine several current controversies
associated with our changing population structure.
