Offered on the Albany and Schoharie campuses
Cosmetology students learn the competencies and skills needed to pass the New York state practical and written licensing exams through a program that meets the state-required 1,000 hours of instruction.
Students attend Cosmetology for two years. There is a mandatory summer program after completion of the first year, to complete a required 120 hours of study. They apply theory and skills, and strengthen competencies through hands-on experiences including a clinic open to the community and a salon internship. Academics are integrated, and students may earn college credits.
