Chang-Eun Lee, Soon-Hee Kim
This study has conducted to provide basic data to allow workers in the beauty art industry gain more knowledge about public health and hygiene after investigating public health-related courses in beauty art-related departments and students’ recognition about these courses in junior colleges and four-year universities. For this, the course schedules in 41 junior colleges and 21 four-year universities were analyzed, and students’ recognition about public health-related courses was examined among 113 students from beauty art-related departments and 233 students from other departments. The results of this study are summarized as follows: (1) In the case of junior colleges, the public health-related course load ranged from 0 to 11 credits. Among 41 colleges, only five schools had all four public health-related courses. In the case of four-year universities, the public health-related course load ranged from 3 to 14 credits. Among 21 universities, only 3 schools had the four public healthrelated courses. (2) Among the students from beauty art-related departments, 78.8% said that they changed their attitude toward public health after completing the public health-related courses. Among the students from other departments, when asked what they consider most when they choose a beauty shop, 62.6% responded ‘sanitation’. When asked what they think is the most important subject in the beauty art industry, students from both beauty-art-related and other departments said ‘Science of Disinfection and Infection. Based on the results above, because the students from beauty art-related departments earn a beauty artist’s license upon graduation, it is necessary to provide public health and hygiene education regardless of their major such as hairdressing, esthetics, make-up or nail art.
