Can I apply for a master's program only?
There are two categories of students who are eligible for "terminal" master's programs. Graduate students holding DDS degrees working toward a clinical certification can, and in some instances are required to earn a master's degree in conjunction with their specialties. Additionally, Oral Hygiene graduates seeking to further their knowledge of the field most commonly with the goal of moving into an academic position are welcome into the master's program. Students seeking a research degree, whether basic, clinical or translational are generally not accepted for terminal master's programs.
