HS 301 - Death and Dying: Exploring New Paradigms (4)

This interdisciplinary course examines end of life issues in our contemporary culture through various models: biomedical/technological, theological/spiritual/religious, diversity/multicultural, and ethical. Students are encouraged to question and challenge prevailing structures, models, beliefs, and ethical questions, while integrating new perspectives of death and dying. A strong service leaning component will engage the student in applying the new information, reinforcing individual learning while expanding the collective classroom experience ultimately creating the possibility for new end of life paradigms.
