What Does a Mortician Do?

Also referred to as an embalmer or undertaker, a Mortician prepares deceased bodies for end-of-life arrangements by embalming, dressing, cosmetically enhancing, reconstructing, casketing, and ultimately beautifying the body of the deceased. In smaller funeral homes, a funeral director may take on the mortuary duties.

What type of person wants to learn more about mortuary science?

A mortician is an on-call and in-demand career path for those that are compassionate and want to make a difference. An associate degree in Funeral Service is perfect for someone interested in helping to memorialize loved ones for the bereaved and the science behind funeral service.
