A.A.S. Cosmetology Instructor Degree

Associate of Applied Science – Cosmetology Instructor

The hands-on Cosmetology Instructor Certificate Program trains students to guide and inspire a new generation of cosmetologists.

The degree builds on the Cosmetology Certificate Program. In one year, students with a cosmetology operator or esthetician license will discover how to teach effectively, plan lessons, assess learning and prepare others for state testing and licensing.

In addition to cosmetology instructor courses, the students will take freshman and sophomore-level general studies courses.

Those who complete the AAS degree and become a licensed cosmetology instructor will have more opportunities for employment and are qualified to teach at a high school or community college.
