Program Overview

Everyone is aging. Develop your critical research and analysis skills to uncover diverse perspectives on aging and find ways to help support our rapidly aging population.  

The M.A. in Interdisciplinary Aging Studies (AGNG) is a thesis-based M.A. program designed to foster an understanding of key conceptual and methodological foundations of interdisciplinary aging studies, executed from both research-based and applied (e.g., experiential learning) approaches. The M.A. in Interdisciplinary Aging Studies degree offers graduate students training in social science and humanities fields related to the study of aging, including social-cultural dimensions of aging; systems, services and policy; cultural/literary studies, performance, and creative arts; social justice, especially equity, diversity and inclusion; and professional fields requiring expertise in aging. The M.A. program emphasizes the importance of developing skills in critical analysis of contemporary aging issues and practical approaches to aging-related challenges across different contexts – ranging from individual experiences of aging to the societal complexities of aging populations.  

  • Develop valuable insights into the day-to-day experiences and perspectives of older adults by engaging directly with older people or programs who serve older people regularly throughout your degree program. 

  • Prepare for a meaningful career in public and nonprofit sectors, and managerial-level positions in institutions and community organizations that support older adults. 

  • Conduct interdisciplinary research through the Trent Centre for Aging and Society—where faculty, students, staff, and community stakeholders build meaningful dialogue that challenges entrenched ideas about aging, old age and older people.
