Mortuary Science Building, 5439 Woodward Avenue, Detroit. 
Free parking is available in Lot 33, located on Woodward Avenue between Palmer and Ferry streets.

Currently, programs are offered in mortuary science, clinical laboratory science, pathologists’ assistant and post-bachelor forensic investigation. All programs are offered through the Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.

When it began in 1939, Wayne State’s mortuary science program was one of the first programs of its kind. Today, it is still the only accredited undergraduate degree program leading to state licensure in Michigan. It is also one of only three Carnegie Research Universities core-based accredited programs in the nation.
