The Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science offers an extensive program designed to prepare students for the many challenges they will encounter as funeral service professionals. The diversified curriculum continually evolves to address the changing needs and expectations associated with contemporary funeral services. In fact, much of what has been included in the Institute's curriculum will soon be required on a national basis.
P.I.M.S. continues to provide thorough training in the mortuary arts and sciences. This training includes a theoretical understanding as well as personalized practical instruction by licensed funeral directors and embalmers. The school not only utilizes the facilities in its own building but also works in cooperation with the Allegheny County Coroner's Office to enhance the student's exposure to a wide range of applied experiences.

The curriculum is also changing to reflect the current and future trends in the funeral profession. There is an appreciation of the complexities confronting today's funeral practitioner in such diverse areas as business management and accounting, psychology and counseling, marketing and public relations, and others. A computer science course is also available, as well as a Professional Seminar Series designed to keep students abreast of the different facets influencing the funeral service profession.

The faculty members exhibit a wide range of interests and come from very different backgrounds both within the funeral profession and within their own areas of expertise. This allows for an individualized learning experience whereby the student becomes acquainted with the skills required of the funeral professional. The students are encouraged to actively participate in this experience and are supported in this effort by the faculty and the administration.

The Institute strives to provide relevant information on all topics surrounding the death care industry thereby allowing both students and licensees to make informed choices within their chosen profession. In addition to this, an attempt is made to instill a sense of social consciousness which stresses the growing responsibilities and obligations of the funeral service professional. Ultimately, the Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science aspires to provide its graduates with the resources and the confidence to represent funeral services as a professional caregiver providing a valuable contribution to the community.
