MS Pharmaceutical Sciences in Cosmetic Science

December 01, 2020

The University of Cincinnati Online Cosmetic Science program is delivered in an online format that enables you to advance your career without disrupting your current personal or professional roles.

Started in 1973, our Master of Science in Cosmetic Science is globally recognized as one of the oldest cosmetic science graduate programs in the country.  Our innovative programs help prepare students today to gain knowledge of cosmetic science that help them develop as industry leaders for tomorrow.

We offer both a Graduate Certificate and our nationally-acclaimed Master of Science in Cosmetic Science 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.

Why study Cosmetic Science Online?

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, a master’s degree in cosmetic science will put you on a trajectory for success.
