How do I start studying mortuary science on my own?

To all professional morticians out there, do you have any tips as to how I can study and research mortuary sciences? I'm unsure where to begin.

Joshua’s Answer

Talk with your local mortician or funeral director about shadowing!
Degree and training programs are available in mortuary science and funeral services! They are less common, but generally accessible.
I would also look for jobs at a funeral home, morgue, or coroners office.
The mortuary/funeral field bridges event planning, anatomy, surgery, chemistry, cosmetology, and divinity, and experience in any of these fields is helpful.
Hands on self study is basically impossible with first obtaining a job or entering a training program in the field.

I would say talk to a mortician in your area. See if they can mentor you while you are in school.
