Aging and the Life Course Reading List
The exam will consist of three sets of questions. Each set will contain at least two questions and students must answer one question in each set. Your answers should show that you have critically thought enough about a content area that you can identify, explain and illustrate the key themes, plus be able to take positions and back up those positions (or multiple positions pertinent to an issue). In order to do this, you need to be on top of content, theoretical issues, and methods/research issues.
