APPROVAL OF NEW DEGREE PROGRAMS

(Vice Chancellor Randy Schulte)

Southwest Tennessee Community College

Associate of Applied Science in Funeral Service Education (A.A.S.)

Southwest Tennessee Community College proposes the establishment of a new Associates of

Applied Science Degree (A.A.S.) in Funeral Services Education. The program will be delivered at

the Whitehaven Center and will be the first of its kind offered at a public college in Tennessee.

Tennessee has one of the highest levels of employment for funeral service jobs in the country. There

are more than 370 establishments in the State with annual sales of $316 million. Workforce data

supports the need for the proposed program.

The program was developed with input from a 25-member advisory board composed of funeral

directors and mortuary services providers and has strong support from these industry representatives.

The program is designed to meet the requirements for accreditation through the American Board of

Funeral Service Education (ABFSE), Committee on Accreditation.
