Prerequisites

There are no specific degrees or course requirements for the Professional Program in the Study of Loss and Grief.

Curriculum Requirements

The curriculum comprises 2 required workshops and 41 hours of electives for a total of 6.0 ceu (60 hours of instruction).

Be sure to indicate on the Extension course roster that you wish to receive continuing education units for the course. This will initiate a record of your attendance.

The program can be completed at your own pace. It will take a minimum of three semesters (one year) to complete the program; however, the courses can be taken over the course of several years. There is no deadline for completion of the courses in the program.

Each course is priced individually, and you pay the course fee at the time of enrollment. The program has an estimated cost of $2,000 (not including course materials or registration fee). Course fees are subject to change.
