From the Instructor:
Welcome to SOC232, Death and Dying: Cultures and issues. I am honored to be your guide through an exploration of this fascinating topic, that is most often avoided, as if it were taboo or never occurred in the U.S. This course introduces the institution of death in the United States. It includes a broad multicultural, interdisciplinary approach, including sociological, psychological, historical, ethical, cultural, and religious approaches to death, dying, and bereavement across the lifespan. Because many of you are taking this course as part of your career training, I firmly believe that you can't help anyone who is dying, or facing the death of a loved one, unless you have done your own internal work on this life event. If you have additional questions about this course, please email me: catherine.zimmerman@pcc.edu
