NURS 5081: Survey of Aging (3)
Lecture: 3, Lab: 0, Other: 0
The Seminar in Aging is designed as the first in a set of four gerontology courses taught over GSAMS, and is appropriate for both graduate students and upper level undergraduates. The purpose of the course is to provide an introduction and overview of the biology, psychology, and sociology of aging. In addition, contemporary topics related to older individuals and aging are introduced. The course is taught collaboratively over the Georgia Statewide Academic and Medical Systems (GSAMS) distance learning network. Participation by students and discussion among collaborating faculty will highlight the complexities of the aging process from diverse perspectives. The views, expertise, and experiences of such a diverse collection of faculty and students will provide an introduction to the field of gerontology not typically found at a single university.
