EDGEWOOD, Ky. (AP) - Gateway Community and Technical College and the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science have signed an agreement enabling Gateway graduates to complete a bachelor’s degree in Cincinnati in 16 months.

Students interested in a bachelor’s degree in mortuary science must complete 52 credit hours of prerequisites prior to enrolling at Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science. CCMS does not offer prerequisite courses, focusing on upper division courses only.

Beyond the prerequisites, a student needs only three more courses for an associate degree from Gateway.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the median annual salary for morticians, undertakers and funeral directors for 2012 was $38,800 in the state of Kentucky and $49,900 for Ohio.
