Purpose

The Associate in Applied Science in Cosmetology degree combines a basic academic curriculum with an advanced vocational curriculum to provide the graduate with a solid preparation for career entry or career advancement. The academic portion of the degree may be transferred to another postsecondary institution. However, students should be aware that the A.A.S. degree, unlike the A.A. and A.S. degrees, does not meet general education requirements at most 4-year institutions.
