Aging is examined as a social process that occurs throughout an individual’s life course until death. Topics include aging in relation to social institutions such as economy, family, education, and health. Differences in the aging process by race and ethnicity, social class, health status and disability are addressed. Cultural contrasts across societies and changes through history are studied. Sociological theories of aging are applied and compared.
