M.S. in Dentistry
University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA
The School of Dentistry in collaboration with the UAB Graduate School offers graduate studies leading to a Master of Science (MS) degree in Dentistry. The objective of the program is to relate basic biological sciences to health and diseases of the oral cavity and craniofacial complex. This program is designed for individuals holding a D.D.S., D.M.D., or B.A/B.S. (biology, chemistry, biomedical science major) with minimal or no research experience. This program will provide training in dental academics and teaching and research in basic or applied sciences. Students can pursue research studies focused on clinical dentistry, oral biology, or biomaterials.
The 2-year program consists of course work, seminars, journal club, and a laboratory component. Course work includes formal lectures and courses offered within the School of Dentistry. A significant portion of the program is devoted to the design and completion of a thesis research project carried out under the supervision of the faculty mentor. The diversity of clinical, translational and basic biomedical disciplines in the Dental School offers opportunities for students to pursue studies in a stimulating research environment.
To earn your degree, you can follow one of two paths. In the first, if you hold a B.S., a B.A. with a science major, or a D.M.D., D.D.S, or B.D.S. degree, you'll have the opportunity to earn an M.S. in Dentistry with a focus on Dental Biomaterials or Oral Biology. For the second, those with a D.M.D., D.D.S, or B.D.S. degree who have been accepted to a postdoctoral residency program in Orthodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Endodontics, Periodontology, or Prosthodontics can apply in order to pursue an M.S.
Regardless of your track, successful completion of the program requires acceptance to the UAB Graduate School and a minimum of 30 graduate credits. Of these,18 credits must be selected from graduate-level courses approved for the program and a minimum of 12 credits of research. Each student must orally defend a master's thesis based on their research. If the applicant holds a D.D.S. or D.M.D. degree, the MS program may be combined with a clinical residency training only after acceptance into the clinical specialty certificate program. Residents earning a master's degree, regardless of specialty/status, will be charged tuition by the UAB Graduate School for enrollment in the master's program.
