Program Director

Career in Mortuary Science

The Mortuary Science Program at Malcolm X College prepares students to care for human remains. Students receive training in every phase of funeral service: embalming, restoration techniques, conduction of funeral services and grief facilitation for the bereaved.

Successfully completing the curriculum and capstone course qualifies students to take the Conference Examination (National Board Exam). This is the licensing exam, which is necessary in order to intern and practice funeral directing and embalming.​​​​​​​​​​​
