“Mortuary and Funeral Services Studies” is a new course offered by Pentecost University.
Prior to the 2023 academic year, Pentecost University, a school affiliated with the Church of Pentecost, successfully introduced a new course in “Mortuary Science and Funeral Studies.”
On Tuesday, November 22, 2022, the “Mortuary Science and Funeral Studies” course was successfully held at the university’s main campus in Sowutuom, Accra.
At the program’s debut, Pentecost University Vice-Chancellor Prof. Kwabena Agyapong-Kodua said that although humans cannot stop death, arrangements can be made to lessen the pain that comes with it.
“we can’t fight death but we can develop structures to minimize its associated agonies and preserve the dignity of our departed loved ones.” – Prof. Kwabena Agyapong-Kodua.
The Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Kwabena Agyapong-Kodua at the ceremony further added that “We realized there are legal implications and this will be handled by experts from our Faculty of Law whilst the cultural, psychosocial aspect of grief and pastoral dimension will be handled by our Pentecost School of Theology, Ministries and Leadership.”
“Not only that, the major engineering aspects associated with refrigeration, and decomposition will be handled by the Faculty of Engineering Sciences and Computing.”
