Academic Programs Cosmetology
The Cosmetology program prepares students for careers as licensed cosmetologists. Midland College is certified by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation as a cosmetology training provider, and the curriculum is designed to prepare students for successful completion of the Texas Cosmetology Operator and Cosmetology Instructor licensure examinations.
Students receive hands-on training in an instructional salon environment under the supervision of licensed Cosmetology instructors. Specific areas of training include hair design, hair care, nail technology, skin care/facials, hair coloring, chemical reformation, and salon development. Instruction also includes supervised field trips and demonstrations by professional cosmetologists. The Cosmetology Operator program is a full-time program with limited enrollment; students must attend class from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
The Operator Certificate consists of 42 semester credit hours and takes one year (12 months) to complete. Students who enroll in the Cosmetology program at Midland College and who already possess a current Texas Cosmetology Operator Certificate are eligible to receive automatic college credit for courses in the Operator Certificate.
