Both the M.A. and certificate program in thanatology are designed to conform with the Association for Death Education and Counseling (ADEC) Certification requirements for those persons interested in becoming certified as death educators, grief counselors, or grief therapists.

The program is also appropriate for new graduate students who are embarking on career paths, as well as for social workers, psychologists, counselors, teachers, and others who wish to expand their work into this growing area of expertise.
