Introduction to Aging

This course introduces the interdisciplinary field of gerontology and the study of aging, with an emphasis on biology/physiology, psychology, and sociology. It emphasizes the impact of increased life expectancy and aging on individuals, families, and health care providers and systems. Topics include factors linked to gender, race, ethnicity, and cultural diversity as well as changes and challenges for social and public services, public policy, and the politics of aging. Gerontology is a growing field with practical applications in health care, fitness and wellness, social work, and social services.

Instructor notes: The course has two required exams that are taken at the Academic Proctoring Center, located on both the Oceanside and San Elijo MiraCosta campuses. Please note that this is why the class is listed as Hybrid; the rest of the class is entirely online. If you live out of this area, then contact the Academic Proctoring Center and they will help you locate a proctor in your area. Text information is available on SURF. To save money, look into renting and using etexts. There is an earlier edition of the text at the MCC Library, Oceanside campus, on reserve. I will send out a welcome and information handout to all on the roster around Jan 13. I will open up Canvas late Monday Jan 20. I look forward to working with you this spring.
