The Cosmetology curriculum is designed to provide competency-based knowledge, scientific/artistic principles, and hands-on fundamentals associated with the cosmetology industry. The curriculum provides a simulated salon environment, which enables students to develop manipulative skills.

Upon successful completion of all courses in this CCP pathway, the student will be awarded a Career and College Promise Certificate from DCCC. Once students complete the certificate, they can continue their coursework towards a diploma. Graduates with a diploma 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 as skin/nail specialists, platform artists, and related businesses.
