Masters Degree Program
The MS in the Oral & Craniofacial Sciences is a Plan I program that complies with the guidelines of the Graduate Division of UCSF. The MS is an academic degree requiring a minimum of the equivalent of one full year of research and didactic study. The postgraduate program at UCSF allows the combination of academic/research training for the MS degree with clinical training leading to a specialty certification usually over a minimum three-year period. Outstanding dental students may also apply for concurrent enrollment in the MS program.
Application to the OCS MS program requires the applicant to take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). The examination needs to be taken by a date set by the postgraduate program directors, but the entire application and GRE scores need to be submitted by May before the student enters the postgraduate program starting in June. The applicant needs to pass the GRE with a score of 30% or greater on each of the three parts of quantitative, written and verbal. If an applicant does not pass above 30% on all three sections, the applicant will be asked to take an essay examination administered by the OCS MS program to determine their competency for completing a master’s degree.
The application form for the OCS MS program is available at: https://apply.ucsf.edu/graduate/apply/ocsms.
The 2013-14 application cycle starts October 1, 2013 and closes May 1, 2014.
