Worsham College of Mortuary Science Reviews

Students take 12 classes at a time, each student taking the same class. Since worsham is a small school, this strict schedule is possible. Extra help can come from the teachers personally, but I find studying with my peers an excellent resource, if not the best. Only a hand full of the professors are very helpful, specifically, the ones who have been there for 20 plus years or are seasoned funeral directors. Worsham provides excellent hands on training at the Cook County Medical Examiners Office in Chicago.
Almost all have the teachers have been through the school and are funeral directors. With that said, the teachers are very understand with academics as well as the job of being a funeral director. Many teachers have had students from all over the country, providing excellent knowledge and resources or job openings. Although the work load is intense, each teacher understands and encourages.
Tuition is very fair at worsham. For a private school, the tuition is what I expected and the education is exactly what I need to stay out and succeed in the field. There are many opportunites available for grants, scholarships, etc for funeral directing, but you must do your homework. Nothing comes easy.
