Sociology 353: The Sociology of Aging

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.
