Trent launches Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Aging Studies program


Trent University is launching a Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Aging Studies program. The program will teach practical approaches to aging-related challenges as well as how to analyze issues around contemporary aging. Students will have the opportunity to complete an experiential learning placement. “We are excited to have a new program for graduate students interested in studying aging from perspectives across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences,” said Trent Centre for Aging and Society Director Dr Elizabeth Russell. “Communities all over Canada are aging—we’re all aging—and so we must deepen our understanding of the realities of growing older and challenge entrenched ideas about older adults.”
