The Funeral Service Education degree prepares students for entry-level positions in
funeral service. The student is exposed to theory-based and clinical experiences reflective
of the current industry standards. It is designed to meet the prerequisites for licensure
and employment in the field of funeral service as funeral directors or embalmers.
Prospective students must complete a separate application to the program (available in November for the following Fall entrance) in addition to the regular college application. Information workshops are held in April and August for prospective students. For more information, please call the Science and Technology Division office at (650)306-3291.
