    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course has extremely interesting material and really helps an individual understand death and dying, not only in one's own society, but across other cultures and time periods, as well.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about several different cultures and how they approach death and dying. A culture might be more accepting of death if family members take care of the corpse. While on the other hand, a culture might be more death denying, which leads to fear or anxiety of one's own mortality, if a funeral or service is postponed or other factors. I was even required to tour a funeral home and interview the funeral home director. This was extremely intriguing because it changed my perception of the funeral home business. It was less about making money and more about helping the bereaved.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the chapters in the textbooks, take your own notes, review Dr. Olson's notes, and watch or read any other material, such as videos or journal articles she provides. It will truly help your understanding and you will be much more prepared for the tests.
