What You’ll Learn

Designed as a shared program with the Milwaukee Area Technical College, the Funeral Service program prepares individuals for a career as a licensed funeral director and embalmer. The program covers funeral management, arrangements, and service practices; embalming; funeral chemistry; restorative art; and other topics related to both the business and science sides of the industry.

Classes may be offered in a hybrid or online setting to link instruction from both Blackhawk and MATC. In some cases, students may be asked to attend classes outside of their current district. Students who complete the program will earn an associate degree from MATC, and be eligible to receive their license (pending successful completion of the National Board Exam and State Board Exam).

To get started with the application process, degree requirements, and program courses, please reach out to Jasmin Barnhill, Academic Advisor, at (608) 757-7713 or jbarnhill1@blackhawk.edu.
