What To Know When Selecting A Degree In Mortuary Science

Pursuing a career in funeral service is not for everyone. To be a successful funeral director requires a compassion for individuals who are enduring the most difficult time of their lives. To work in this field, individuals must earn a degree in mortuary science.

To receive the proper training, students must enroll in a training program that is accredited by the proper national agency. This means the school has undergone professional review to demonstrate its ability to meet the industry's highest standards. Reviews are conducted a minimum of every seven years.

To become a licensed funeral director, students must take a wide range of courses. Some classes focus on the skills necessary to embalm bodies and restore bones and structures of the face, including the mouth, eyes, nose, and ears. Other courses deal with the business side of running a funeral home. These include learning about laws, ethics, and effective grief counseling when interacting with clients.

Funeral directors must do much more than simply embalm bodies in preparation for burial services. They must have the skills necessary to run a successful business. They are responsible for organizing memorial services while helping participants through the grieving process. Those who work in large companies can advance to higher positions and may become general or branch managers for multiple funeral homes.

Professionals in this industry have the duty to uphold the highest ethics at all time. Students earning a degree learn how to deal effectively with grieving family members while protecting their privacy. Funeral directors are also responsible to maintaining public health and safety while caring for human remains.

States have individual requirements for becoming licensed. Some states require the completion of a two-year training program. Oklahoma, Minnesota, Ohio, and Michigan are among the states requiring students in this field to complete four years of training.
