Carl Sandburg College offers both a traditional associate degree and an optional accelerated program for students interested in a career in Mortuary Science.
Program Aims and Purposes: The Mortuary Science program, as it prepares students to serve within the funeral service profession, adheres to the institutional commitment to student success in both human development and achievement of educational goals. This challenge is met by educating our students in all phases of funeral service with special attention being given to the high ethical standards within the funeral service profession. These goals are accomplished through a wide variety of educational experiences aimed at developing the many skills needed in order to successfully serve within the funeral service profession. This curriculum is based upon the American Board of Funeral Service Education curriculum outlines. Several of the Mortuary Science classes require some outside work as well as research about various aspects of the funeral service profession. Upon completion of the Mortuary Science program, each graduate will have attained those skills necessary to uphold and foster the dignity of the funeral service profession.
