Course Description:

Students will participate in reading, critical thinking, paper writing, exercises, discussion on this important subject matter and paradigm of the aging experience.

How This Course Benefits Students:

It is often the case of other and self. We see self as normal and other as different/wrong. As a professional, minister, missionary or volunteer in almost any employment, denomination position, missional country or service our responsibility is to be concerned for the personhood and well-being of the other. Exposure to and understanding of the roots of other enables self to become compassionate and focus on the commonalities of the human condition, particularly in aging.

Why This Course Is Important:

The MU course brings students from around the world into a course and environment where the diversity of multiculturalism can be experienced and discussed.
