Welcome to the Death and Dying LibGuide!
Death and Dying is a three credit course that runs in the fall on Monday evenings from 7:05pm – 9:35pm and in the spring on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8:55am – 10:10am on the Paterson campus. We will have guest speakers and take field trips to help us understand “thanatology” – the study of death.
This course provides students with the biological, sociological, and psychological perspectives of death, dying and bereavement in our society and around the world. Topics will include euthanasia, suicide, terminal illness, funeral and burial rituals, and culture and ethical values and problems related to death and the terminal illness in contemporary society.
