The Mortuary Science program at SLCC is designed to help you gain entry-level skills and knowledge required to work in a funeral home. During the course of this program, you will actively participate in exercises such as embalming and restorative art on the deceased which takes place in the on-site lab and in funeral homes.

SLCC's excellent program will teach you effective communication, quantitative literacy, funeral arts, how to assist the bereaved, regulatory compliance, and more to prepare you to excel in the important and growing field of Mortuary Science.

All of the programs offered in the School of Health Sciences at Salt Lake Community College are a part of the Northwest Commission on College and Universities (NWCCU), a regional accrediting body recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. This means that the credits that you complete at SLCC will transfer to all the other state institutions, as well as most private institutions, so that you will not have to start over in obtaining a bachelors degree or higher. This is an added bonus for SLCC student that is not always available at all health sciences programs around the city, state or country.

For academic year 2020-2021 there will be Monthly Presentation Sessions on Allied Health and Health Professions programs.  All sessions through December 2020  have been canceled due to COVID-19.  For quick review of program view the program's One Sheet.
