Welcome to Global trends in death and dying
“Global trends in death and dying”, written collaboratively and produced as part of research led by the End of Life Studies Group at the University of Glasgow and supported by the Wellcome Trust is aimed at anyone who is interested in global trends in death and dying.
This open course asks you to consider a range of questions. For example, What is death like around the world? How do we know what the causes and circumstances of death are globally? Are these changing, and if so, why? We will try to find the answers to these questions in this short module.
