Our MOU related to the Thanatology Graduate Certificate

Seeking opportunities to learn more about death, dying and palliative care? Are you interested in becoming a Hospice Social Worker? Master of Social Work students who have completed the SWCL 724: Clinical Social Work with Aging and/or Families and SWCL 748: Clinical Social Work in Relation to Death, Dying and Bereavement with a B+ or better can receive dual credit towards the Aging and Applied Thanatology graduate certificate offered by the Graduate School.

After receiving their MSW, students who meet these criteria may apply to the Aging and Applied Thanatology certificate program. Admitted students have one to three years to complete the remaining six credits, delivered via two courses, THAN 604: Death and Dying - Ethical and Legal Considerations and THAN 605: Palliative Care to receive their post baccalaureate certificate in Aging and Applied Thanatology. Both courses are 8 weeks in length, and are delivered exclusively online.
