Take the first steps towards turning your passion into a career with our Esthiology Program

Esthiology Diploma Program

If you have a passion for skin care and an eye for beauty, college students could begin their career as an esthetician at the Minnesota School of Cosmetology (MSC).  Our esthiology diploma program is designed to be completed in under 5 months (600 clock hours) with full-time enrollment.  College students completing this esthiology diploma program will be trained in the areas of:

  • Cosmetic care of the skin
  • Application of facials, treatments, make up, nutrition, and hair removal
  • Fundamentals of dermatology, anatomy and physiology, skin analysis, and skin disorders
  • Other areas that pertain to skincare and treatment

What makes the Minnesota School of Cosmetology’s esthiology program different?

Our esthiology diploma program has been developed by talented, caring, real-world professionals, many of whom still work in the field.  We give our esthiology students experience in skincare, waxing, make-up, application of facials, and more.

We have developed an esthiology diploma program with unique projects and classroom experiences that are designed to engage the student and the client.  Because most of our school instructors still work in the field, our students are kept up-to-date on trends and learn the latest techniques.

Because this is a short-term, full-time program, our esthiology students have the ability to get out working in their new career quickly.

Skincare and Health

Good skincare is not only important to your appearance, but also to your health. In fact, your skin is the largest organ in your body, serving as a protector from germs, harmful UV rays and other intruders. And just as it protects us, we need to protect it. Esthiology plays a key role in helping us look and feel our very best. Plus, a little pampering never hurt anyone either!

Facials are one of the many skills our students learn.
