Any 18 credits completed.


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




Students explore the spiritual and religious dimensions of death and dying in end-of- life care. They learn about the origins of hospice and how palliative care extends beyond the medical model in order to ease the experience of dying. They focus particularly on analyzing the experience of dying and end-of-life care for Indigenous cultures, children, the homeless, LGBTQ+ communities, atheists and those who choose a medically assisted death.
