The University of Cincinnati Online Cosmetic Science Graduate Certificate program delivered in an online format that enables you to advance your career without disrupting your current personal or professional roles. The online learning format allows students to access program content on their own time and at their own pace allowing for a more flexible approach to teaching and learning.
All credits taken as part of the certificate in the cosmetic science program may be subsequently applied toward the MS in Cosmetic Science at the college of pharmacy.
Both the graduate certificate and the MS of Science in Cosmetic Science are offered online to part-time and full-time students. We also provide the conventional thesis-based MS and Ph.D. degrees in Pharmaceutical Science with an emphasis in Cosmetic Science/Biomembrane.
At the University of Cincinnati, our approach to cosmetic science is scientific. It’s for thinkers and doers. For inventors and explorers. For those ready to make an impact in one of the fastest-growing and increasingly science-driven fields.
Some larger companies prefer cosmetic chemists who have higher education for lead and management-level roles. In addition to furthering a career in management, students join the program because they want to learn how safe, effective, and environmentally-friendly products are scientifically formulated.
Many students come from major companies in the cosmetic industries with chemistry or engineering degrees. Although, there are non-science majors such as business or marketing who are interested in learning more about the science of this field.
Whether you are a dermatologist, MD, scientist, researcher, chemist, or looking to start your skincare or cosmetics company, an MS degree in Cosmetic Science will put you on a trajectory for success.
The UC Cosmetic Science faculty have the corporate experience, expertise, and practical application necessary for training award-winning students.
The Cosmetic Science Graduate Certificate is typically completed in 3 semesters or 1 year based on taking 2 courses per semester, which is the average pace.
For the Cosmetic Science Graduate Certificate, a grade-point average (GPA) of at least 3.00 or foreign equivalent is recommended.
