A Study of Public Health and Hygiene Education in Beauty Art-Related Departments
Chang-Eun Lee, Soon-Hee Kim
ABSTRACT
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.
