Advanced Special Effects Makeup, Prosthetics and Props (PASEM) at Sheridan College

Sheridan College Advanced Special Effects Makeup, Prosthetics and Props program prepares students in one year to begin a career in the highly specialized field of advanced special effects makeup. 

The program is one of the few programs of its kind in North America and the only one in the Ontario college system. Coursework was developed specifically to meet the needs of employers such as museums, amusement parks, exhibitors and the entertainment industry.

As classes are small, students will receive lots of personal support from their professors who are themselves highly experienced in the field. Most are still active in special effects makeup. Through students’ study they will also be introduced to the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), the union representing the profession.

Students earn their graduate certificate through classes that involve:

  • Researching styles, trends and new developments within the industry.
  • Developing two-dimensional special effects concepts and work-ups of what they might look like complete.
  • Using specialized products and equipment to animate, sculpt, create, cast and mold various creations.
