The Cosmetology Program at Lamar State College-Port Arthur prepares students for a career as a cosmetology professional. The recommended courses of study are designed to meet licensure requirements established by the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation. Graduates will accrue the required number of semester credit hours in training and will have the knowledge and skills needed to pass the Texas cosmetology licensing examination. 

Students in the Cosmetology Program at Lamar State College-Port Arthur can earn a two-year Associate of Applied Science Degree in Cosmetology Operator or Cosmetology Instructor, or a one-year certificate of completion in Cosmetology Operator or Cosmetology Instructor. 

Students will receive training in the LSC-PA Cosmetology Center, a state-of-the-art facility that includes classrooms, labs and the support facilities necessary to operate a professional salon. Customers are accepted at certain times of the week to supply the hands-on experience required for licensing in Texas.
