The Cosmetology curriculum provides hands-on training in a simulated salon environment, which enables students to develop manipulative skills in hair care, esthetics and manicuring/nail technology.
Graduates should qualify to sit for the State Board of Cosmetic Arts examination. Upon successfully passing the State Board exam, graduates will be issued a license. Employment is available in beauty salons and related businesses.
Employment of barbers, hairstylists, and cosmetologists is projected to grow 8 percent from 2018 to 2028, faster than the average for all occupations. Population growth will lead to greater demand for hair care services.
