About The Program
With a career in mortuary science, you’ll guide individuals through the final phase of life with skilled professionalism, honoring the deceased with dignity and respecting the wishes of their family. While pre-mortuary science is not a major itself, we’ll match you with a degree program and the necessary coursework required to prepare you for admission into a school of mortuary science.

- Have strong communication and critical thinking skills
- Are sympathetic but emotionally strong
