The London College of Fashion has been running a Bachelors Level Cosmetic Science program for some time. They have recently increased the content of that program and now offer a Masters level program. The MS degree offers more training related to awareness of the business of the cosmetic industry. The program takes 4 to 5 years to complete and has an option for finishing early for the Bachelors degree.
Here is a further description.
“MSc Cosmetic Science is an exciting new applied science course situated in the School of Management and Science. It is designed for students who want a career within the cosmetic and toiletry industry, and focuses on the needs of the cosmetic industry and its consumers, at the same time as providing students with the critical and evaluative skills to be able to function as professional scientists. It is an integrated MSc, with a BSc exit point, and an optional placement year in industry in the third year of the course. This provides a unique offer in cosmetic science education world-wide, enabling students to start as undergraduates and exit with a postgraduate qualification. The MSc qualification offers a distinct advantage in today’s competitive environment.
The course provides you with knowledge and understanding of the various disciplines within Cosmetic Science and the organisation and function of the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Perfumery industries. These industries have expanded in recent years as consumers have become more aware of the potential benefits of their products. Industry partners involved in the design and delivery of the course include Procter and Gamble, The Body Shop, Unilever, L’Oreal, Boots and Molton Brown.”
