Overview

Course Details

This Global Ageing and Policy (Distance Learning) Postgrad. Dip. course offered by the University of Southampton focuses on gerontology - the study of ageing at individual and societal levels.

You’ll examine the changes we undergo as we age, as well as the impact of growing proportions of older people on social institutions, labour markets, welfare systems and families.

  • social policy
  • demography
