The College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences offers a Cosmetic Science minor. This minor is for students interested in sciences and who want to learn about beauty and personal care products. The four required lecture-based courses teach students about how the cosmetic industry works, ingredients that go into finished products, and how finished products are formulated and tested. Elective courses help individualize the minor for students.
The cosmetic science minor requires 15 credit hours. A grade of D or higher is required in all courses used to fulfill the cosmetic science minor requirements. Prerequisites for all courses must be fulfilled. Undergraduate students majoring in chemical engineering, chemistry and the BS Pharmaceutical Sciences in pharmaceutics, medicinal chemistry, or pharmacology/toxicology, are likely to the most interested and qualified to complete the Cosmetic Science minor. Prerequisites for many courses in the minor include Chem 2420 Organic Chemistry II.
Interested students should fill out the minor declaration form with the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and meet with an academic advisor in the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. For questions about declaring the minor, please contact CPPS Office of Student Affairs (Main Campus Wolfe Hall 1227 or call 419.530.2010, or Health Science Campus Wolfe Center 155 or call 419.383.1904).
