Trent Centre for Aging & Society will offer a new M.A. in Interdisciplinary Aging Studies this Fall as it continues groundbreaking work

The Trent Centre for Aging & Society (TCAS) continues to offer groundbreaking research, projects, initiatives, and academic programming to enhance society’s understanding of aging, including an exciting new M.A. in Interdisciplinary Aging Studies that will welcome its first cohort in fall 2023.

“This new graduate program is a natural outcome of the 12-plus years of research and community-building momentum generated by Trent Centre for Aging & Society,” said Dr. Elizabeth Russell, director of TCAS. “We are excited to have a new program for graduate students interested in studying aging from perspectives across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. Communities all over Canada are aging — we’re all aging — and so we must deepen our understanding of the realities of growing older.”

TCAS is an international leader in interdisciplinary aging studies that seeks to celebrate aging, understand diverse experiences of aging, and challenge ageist practices in our communities and culture. This important work bears great significance for our future as we face an increasingly aging population.
