Sociology of the Life Course

Listed in: Anthropology and Sociology, as SOCI-22


Elizabeth H. Souza (Section 01)


“Man, woman, birth, death, infinity... ” This course examines the spectrum of the human life course--infancy, childhood, adolescence, middle age, old age--through the prism of sociology. It asks how we have come to subdivide the life course into these stages and addresses the role of social context in their development. Finally, it discusses public policy implications of this categorization.
