|The Thanatology program is unique to King’s; it is the only university in North America to offer a BA in Thanatology. The program gives students several degree options such as a major, combining it with another discipline for an honours double major, or a minor in Thanatology while majoring in a complementary subject (i.e., CSI, SJP or Psychology). Many of our courses are available on-line, and our program incorporates various teaching modalities including in-class instruction, blended learning and experiential learning. The program offers a wide variety of courses including an overview of bereavement and grief, ethical issues, palliative care, suicide, children and death, spiritual and philosophical issues, change and transition, popular culture, grief and trauma, and diversity and social justice. In addition, the program offers a practicum course which includes a 45-hour field placement, and a grief counselling course which involves experiential learning of basic counselling skills.
