Pre-Mortuary Science

 

Advisor: Dr. Kerry Openshaw

  1. Pre-mortuary science is a two-year program at Bemidji State University. Students will make application and transfer to another four-year accredited university to complete their baccalaureate degree in mortuary science.

  2. Pre-mortuary science students at Bemidji State University should declare themselves as Biology majors and work closely with the pre-mortuary science advisor so that all course requirements are fulfilled prior to entrance into mortuary science school. Delay in meeting with the pre-mortuary science advisor will likely result in delayed entrance into mortuary science school.

  3. Courses listed below meet prerequisite requirements for most mortuary science programs within the United States. Some mortuary science schools may require more courses than listed below. It is the responsibility of the student to research all prerequisite requirements for the mortuary science programs they plan to make application to, and bring all prerequisites to the pre-mortuary science advisor to assist in planning the student’s two-year pre-mortuary science academic program at Bemidji State University.
