The BA (Hons) Specialist Make-up Design is a one year programme aimed at providing a route to an honours degree for students that have completed a Foundation Degree, or equivalent, in Specialist Make-up Design or a closely-related subject.
The degree will encourage the development of advanced level professional skills in make-up, hair, wigs and prosthetics, and will prepare learners for working within the TV, Film, Fashion and Theatre industries, as Make-up & Hair Artists and Designers. You will also develop the academic and research skills to enable you to keep abreast of new developments and develop your critical thinking through researching your own (negotiated) study. You will develop a professional portfolio, business plans for your chosen employment pathway, and have the opportunity to display your final project work in a showcase/exhibition. Please note that you are expected to have purchased your own kit, prior to the commencement of your studies.
Studying at University Centre WISE
You will have access to fully equipped make-up studios and workshop spaces at our University Centre WISE campus. This area has been specifically designed for degree students and provides professional facilities to work on projects. You may also access other facilities such as digital design studios, 3D workshops and design suites. Our University Centre WISE (UCWISE) campus provides essential materials, tools and facilities for modules. However, you will be required to purchase a kit of personal tools and equipment to support your studies (costs and specifications will be shared with students before enrolment). You will have the ability to work competently within make-up studios to enhance your practical skills and develop module projects; through tutor-guided development, individual and collaborative work. In addition, there will be opportunities for you to engage with industry through work experience, guest speakers, and attendance at industry events.
