Mid-America College is a member of Pierce Mortuary Colleges, Inc. Other member educational institutions include the Dallas Institute of Funeral Service, in Dallas, Texas, and Gupton-Jones College of Funeral Service in Atlanta, Georgia. As a result of this joint association, the combined students and faculty of all three colleges share in many advantages which a single institution alone could not provide.
The positive growth of Mid-America College and its programs is evidenced by its continued recognition and accreditation by the American Board of Funeral Service Education. The Associate of Applied Science Degree in Funeral Service, authorized by the Indiana Commission on Proprietary Education, provides evidence of positive direction and efforts by the college to prepare its students to better meet the needs of a more sophisticated consumer public as well as to address changes within a progressive and dynamic profession such as funeral service.
In 2017, we launched our Bachelor of Science degree online. This has been met with enthusiastic enrollment and our first graduates of this program were conferred in March 2018. We have also expanded our Associate of Applied Science degree. In April 2018, we began offering this degree 100% online. This has been an exciting time of growth and change for us.
As you well know, a major part of mortuary science education is hands on. This is where you can help us with the education of tomorrow’s funeral directors. As a requirement for graduation, students must participate in at least ten clinical embalmings. This requires the student to obtain practical exposure to the principles of embalmings as taught in the classroom setting. All clinical instruction is completed under the supervision of licensed embalmers. We need your help and expertise as one of these teaching funeral homes.
