Pre-Mortuary Pathway

These represent sample pathways toward an Associate of Science in Pre-Mortuary Science. The Associate of Science degree program in Pre-Mortuary Science is designed for students who are planning to transfer to a four‐year bachelor’s degree program in Mortuary Science. Upon completion of the bachelor’s degree in Mortuary Science, the new funeral service professional will be eligible to take the qualifying exam for Certification in Thanatology (CT) from the Association of Death Education and Counseling and the Thanatology Association. Combining the thanatology certification with funeral director and embalmer licensure is empowering the funeral service professional to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Where noted, these courses are guaranteed to transfer to any public Ohio college under the Ohio Transfer 36 model (general education) and/or Transfer Assurance Guide. This is just a sample. There are numerous courses that could apply toward this pathway, and with noted prerequisite exceptions, they do not have to be taken in this order.
