Full-time students can complete the M.A. in Thanatology program coursework in one to two years—longer for part-time students. The 12-credit certificate program can be completed in one summer. By following these three steps, students can plan on completing the program requirements at a pace that meets their professional needs.
Review the Thanatology Program Planning Guide, which allows students to plan out their coursework on a semester-by-semester basis. Multiple summer courses enable students to complete the program at their desired pace.
Look up the Thanatology program requirements, course descriptions and Graduate School policies and procedures in the catalog.
Students should consult with their program director and/or faculty adviser; the program director contact information is located at the bottom of the Thanatology homepage and students' academic advisers are indicated on their letters of admission. These faculty members can assist in planning a program of study that is based on a student's professional and career goals. All students must consult with their adviser before signing up for any practicum or independent study-related project.
At the Graduate School at Hood College, students have the opportunity to work closely with faculty who can assist in the pursuit of academic and professional goals. Students are encouraged to get to know their faculty advisers and course professors to make the most of their graduate school experience.
