After taking all the courses

“After taking all the courses, you can actually become a certified interior designer. Fullerton College is one of the only programs in Southern California to be accredited by the State and they teach you the basics that you need to know in the industry. The lighting class has really taught me alot, such as how to select the proper lighting for a room, and also how to bring down energy costs.”

The Cosmetology Program

“The Cosmetology Program really prepares you for what your goal is. I love that you have the ability and the freedom to create whatever you want. They teach you the foundation of working at a salon, and so from there you just build on to what you’ve learned here.”
