SOCI 125 - Death and Dying
MW 3:30 – 4:45pm
WGR 211

This course applies sociological theory and research findings to the American interactional, structural, and cultural response to dying and death. The definition of death, medical technology-induced social issues; society's response to death; dying process and dying setting; social interaction patterns during the dying experience, and near-death experiences are examined by applying sociology principles and analytical evidence to these phenomena. The student should develop an understanding about how to apply sociological knowledge to current social situations, to develop a clearer understanding of the social situation, and to formulate policy as a result of evaluating the evidence. Some practical advice about the death and dying experience is also given.
