A Day in the Life of a Mortuary Science Student

March 31st , 6:00pm 7:30pm

mortuary science class

Ever wonder what it’s like to live alongside death on a daily basis? What inspires someone to work in the death-care field? Green-Wood’s “A Day in the Life” series brings together industry professionals for lively conversations on the intricacies of their trade and to answer your burning questions about the field of end-of-life care. 

This evening’s panel highlights mortuary science students and graduates—people who are on the path to becoming funeral directors and have completed their studies. They’ll talk about what it takes to train for the funeral business, the curriculum and practices they study, and just how they ended up doing what they do. 

Price: Free. Registration required.
