    General Education Requirements

    This curriculum plan is designed to meet the two-year requirement in pre-mortuary science. Ordinarily, this program would be followed by one year in a school of mortuary science and one year of apprenticeship. The apprenticeship would come before or after the year in mortuary science depending on state requirements.  (As approved by the North Dakota Board of Embalmers.)

    The curriculum outlined below is based on most mortuary science  program requirements.  Students may earn an Associate's degree in Liberal Arts at WSC, but must transfer to another campus to complete a Bachelor's degree  or Associate's Degree in Mortuary Science.
