WHY CHOOSE AAMI?
On behalf of the faculty and staff of American Academy McAllister Institute (AAMI), I would like to welcome you to our school.
AAMI has a long history both as a pioneer and a leader in funeral service education. Our greatest strengths have been in preparing students for success in their courses and other requirements leading to licensure and preparing them for successful careers in funeral service.
AAMI offers its funeral service associate degree both on-campus and online and students may attend either full-time or part-time. The campus and online options are identical in the courses offered with both requiring 69 credits of prescribed courses. The campus and online courses are taught by the same faculty. To complete the clinical embalming and restorative art lab all students are required to spend several days at the campus in New York City to complete their final credits for graduation.
Campus classes are located in the heart of New York City. In addition to classrooms and offices, the campus has an extensive funeral service library, a demonstration embalming lab and a computer resource lab.
The faculty of AAMI are mostly comprised of licensed funeral directors who have achieved additional expertise in the field of education. This combination of the theoretical and real-world situations provides a rich educational experience.
If our website does not answer all of your questions about AAMI, please call our admissions office and one of our admissions advisors will be available to answer any of your questions. We are ready to help you to achieve your professional goals in funeral service.
On behalf of the faculty and staff of American Academy McAllister Institute of Funeral Service (AAMI), I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and present you with the institution’s academic program.
AAMI has a rich history both as a pioneer and leader in funeral service education. Our greatest strength is our ability to deliver the curriculum created by the American Board of Funeral Service Education (ABFSE) to students in a clear, concise format that is the fundamental basis for a career in funeral service.
AAMI offers its funeral service associate degree program in two-formats: (1) the campus program, which is for students who want to attend full-time at the campus, and (2) the online program which is meant to serve students who wish to attend the institution in a part-time or full-time capacity.
On-campus classes are conducted in the heart of New York City. The format is a traditional lecture approach that requires the crucial learning disciplines of notetaking, organization, and proper study skills. The focus is on the delivery of the ABFSE curriculum with the use of real-world examples based on the extensive experiences of faculty.
The online program is identical to the on-campus program in the courses offered, course content and graduation requirements. It is meant to serve as a part-time option for those who are unable to physically attend the campus and a modified full-time option. It requires organizational planning and discipline but offers flexibility that some prospective students may require or appreciate.
Both programs require the completion of 69 credits of prescribed courses.
I hope as you examine AAMI as a potential option for entry into the funeral service profession, you come to understand our vision is one that is student focused. Our staff and faculty are committed professionals who are excited to guide students through the first step of entering a fulfilling industry centered on compassion, care, and reverence.
Thank you and know that you are welcome at AAMI!
