Do you dream of going down a creative career path? Have a passion for beauty makeup, special effects, and creature design? CMU College of Makeup Art & Design’s Double Diploma Program has all of these elements combined!
In our one of a kind 43 week intensive program, CMU Students graduate with two college diplomas! Students will receive a diploma for our Comprehensive Makeup Artist Program as well as our Digital Effects: Creature & Character Design Program.
In the first semester of this hands on diploma program students will learn Photographic and Studio Hairstyling, Fashion Photographic Makeup, Theatrical Makeup, Facial Hair Knotting for Film & Theatre, Film & Television Makeup and Prosthetics Makeup.
After a reading week students will begin the second half of the diploma program taking courses in Digital Sculpting, Life Drawing, Figurative Sculpting, ZBrush and Practical Creature Design. The course finishes with a week of Career Planning and Digital Portfolio Creation ensuring that students are well prepared to enter into the industry.
Upon graduation students will be added on to the CMU Job Board where they will receive job postings for up to a year after graduation. This gives CMU graduates the perfect opportunity to network within the industry and continue building their portfolio!
CMU Graduates have gone on to work on exciting films and television shows such as IT, The Shape of Water, Hannibal and Orphan Black. This year two CMU Alumni were finalists on Kim Kardashian’s new TV Show, Glam Masters. CMU Alumni have also gone on to be featured on the pages of Makeup Artist Magazine.
