GTY 3 Health and Aging.

This thematic sequence explores health and aging. The tier 1 course provides students with an overview of the process of aging, especially in the United States. In tier 2, students select one of two courses, each examining health and aging from a different position along a continuum that ranges from micro- to macro/meso-level contexts. The tier 3 courses offer students the opportunity to integrate academic and applied aspects of health and aging, either through exploration of moral issues in health care, secondary data analysis, or a field experience in a health care setting.
