Theories of Ageing

The course starts spring 2024

The Swedish National Graduate School on Ageing and Health (SWEAH) invites PhD students to apply for the course Theories of Ageing.

All SWEAH courses are open to all PhD students, nationally and internationally, but SWEAH affiliates are given preference. Doctoral students connected to SWEAH's research school undertake to participate in at least two of the courses on aging and health that make up SWEAH's Core Curriculum during the connection period. At least one must be one of the theoretically oriented courses: "Theories of Aging", or "Gerontology - multidisciplinary and integrative perspectives on ageing".

Registration no later than January 20

The last application date for the 3-credits course "Theories of Aging" at Lund University is January 20, 2024, for those who wish to participate during the spring semester. The course starts on March 4 and lasts until August 26. In between, a workshop is planned for March 19-20.

The teachers will be Merril Silverstein, Boo Johansson, Susanne Iwarsson and Suresh Rattan.

All SWEAH's courses are given in a mixed format, online and physically, where students solve tasks both individually and in interdisciplinary groups. During each course, a two-day workshop is carried out in the form of a physical meeting, with an evening activity. All courses are given in English.
