We examine issues of health, social care, welfare, new technologies and accommodation. The department’s strength is based on our interdisciplinarity. Faculty members have backgrounds in economics, human geography, political science, social gerontology, and sociology. These disciplines are the multiple lenses that we view health and aging from.
The Department of Health, Aging and Society offers a number of undergraduate degrees that can be combined with other areas of study.
