King's University College has had an effective Death Education Program since 1976. More than 4,000 students have taken our university courses in Death and Bereavement. A certificate program in Grief and Bereavement Studies was started in 1994, most of the courses are now available by distance (e-mail) education.
In cooperation with the University of Western Ontario, Centre for Continuing Studies, we have developed a Certificate Program in Grief and Bereavement Studies. There are fewer than 10 such programs in North America.
