Funeral Service

Mount Royal University

Mount Royal University
Funeral Service professionals work with families, government, health and legal agencies to serve diverse death-care needs within the community. Our diploma prepares students to be licensed as a funeral director and as an embalmer in the Province of Alberta and is the credential preferred by most funeral home employers. Learn how to plan and direct funeral ceremonies, support grieving families and apply the laws and regulations that govern the funeral profession in the Province of Alberta. Demonstrate facial reconstruction and restorative art techniques and complete the embalming process with all appropriate infection control measures in place. Integrating theory and practice, you will gain new skills in the health sciences, restorative art, funeral directing, embalming, business, microbiology, psychology, laws and regulations and conflict resolution. Gain real-life experience within a funeral home through our supervised practicum and work experience opportunities. You can also complete the work experience within your own community.
