Mortuary Science Program - Putting Theory Into Practice

To begin, you need to make sure DMACC is the right program fit for you. There are several programs throughout the country, but you have to find the one that is right for you. If you want a program that only offers lectures and minimal hands-on learning, then DMACC is not the place for you.

DMACC offers students the following:

  • Hands-on activities and discussions to assist in the learning process
  • Various instructional methods to include on-campus and funeral home based options
  • Newly renovated facilities, including a state-of-the-art preparation room
  • Simulated funeral directing experience including arrangement conferences, visitations, and funerals
  • Embalming experience to include at least 20 cases
  • Practicum experience at licensed funeral home
