    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class has done more than educate me on the processes of death and dying. It has helped me come to terms with the recent deaths I have experienced within my family and made me feel like I was not alone. Professor Olson is very considerate and caring in regards to our personal encounters with death and made this class very enjoyable.

    Course highlights:

    During this class, I gained knowledge about many different cultures and how they process death and dying. While some view death as a sad and torturous part of life, others celebrate death as a new life that has just begun. It really made me look at myself and how I feel about certain topics and because of that, I have a healthier view of death.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For students considering this course, I would say to not even hesitate. Whether they have someone close to them who has passed or have never encountered death, this class with help expand their thinking and opened them up to new ideas and ways to cope with many different aspects of their lives.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    There are a lot of sensitive topics included in the subjects of death and dying and this particular professor handled each question from each student with the upmost respect and sensitivity. I feel it takes a very special professor to be able to teach such topics and Mrs. Olson was just that!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were definitely how each culture handles death and dying differently. I specifically learned the difference between eastern and western cultures views of death and after death. What may seem as unusual to me as a westerner, is actually quite normal on the eastern side of the world and vice versa.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise student to attend every class and be sure to do all of the reading assigned. There is a lot of material covered and taking notes about each topic covered will be in the student's best interest, in order to well on exams.
