MLTS 401: The Army Officer This course was designed to be student-centric with the ownership of learning on the student, but facilitated by the instructor. Army Officers are expected to be life-long learners who take responsibility and personal initiative for their learning. You must properly conduct your preclass assignments in order to come to class with a foundation of knowledge on the subject to be taught by your instructor. Doing so will allow us to spend the majority of the class time on specific areas that are least understood from the pre-class assignment rather than having to teach the subject from scratch. Do your homework so you can spend more time sharing personal knowledge and experiences with the class. Class will be conducted in an interactive manner with ample opportunities for small group discussions and practical exercises. Everyone will be responsible for contributing to the success of the learning experience. 2 credits, Fall MLTS 402: Company Grade Leadership The outcome of this lesson is to have Cadets receive and understand essential information on their last semester of their ROTC career.

MORTUARY SCIENCE PARRIS J. BAKER, Ph.D., MSSA, Program Director Of all human experiences, none is more overwhelming in its implications than death. Presently, the number of openings for funeral directors, embalmers, and other funeral personnel exceeds the number of graduates in the mortuary science field, thereby providing a wealth of employment opportunities. The study of death and how individuals and our larger society prepare for this life event is filled with questions that are rooted at the center of our human experience. This journey of professional and personal discovery is multidisciplinary. Gannon University’s mortuary science curriculum is taught by a variety of professors from biology, business, psychology, sociology, social work, and health sciences. As a BS student in the Gannon University Mortuary Science Program you will receive excellent instruction, completing the first three years of your education at Gannon University and your fourth year at Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science or another licensed institution of your choice. Vision Statement Preparing funeral service practitioners who touch people; offering dignity to the deceased and consolation to the survivors. Mission Statement To produce compassionate and competent funeral service practitioners who respect diverse cultural practices related to illness, dying, death, and care of the deceased and who know and practice the laws and ethics of the mortuary science profession. The ultimate mission of the program is to produce leaders in the field of mortuary science across the United States and abroad.
