Mortuary Science - Director's Message

The program has a strong sustained enrollment and a quality of education and instruction that is rated excellent by our students. One of our primary goals in the Mortuary Science Program is to make a positive contribution to both our students and the funeral profession by integrating ethics across the curriculum. The faculty of the program includes licensed funeral directors and embalmers.

We are committed to empowering our students of diverse backgrounds and abilities to achieve academic, career and personal success by connecting the funeral profession to the student's educational experiences and moral values that will endure the test of time. While being committed to assisting funeral homes in their efforts to reinforce workplace ethics, there is a valued commitment to establishing fiduciary relationships, moral and ethical responsibilities, both individually and collectively.

I invite you to experience for yourself the unique learning environment at Malcolm X College and the Mortuary Science Program. I am confident that you will experience the many reasons why our students choose to pursue their Mortuary Science Education at Malcolm X College, where X marks the spot and student empowerment is through education.

I welcome you to Malcolm X College and to the great City Colleges of Chicago.

Karen Scott – Director/Faculty ​
