The Master of Science in Dental Hygiene (MSDH) program requires the completion of Masters Capstone thesis or professional project. The program is 36 credits in length, designed to be completed in two calendar years (6 credits per semester), and must be completed in five years.  The curriculum includes course work in education and public health providing all MSDH students with content that is increasingly beneficial for intended employment after graduation.

This graduate program has the advantage of building on the successful Dental Hygiene program, and the ability to collaborate with health sciences faculty and departmental resources. The University of Bridgeport offers graduate health science programs leading to a Masters in Physician Assistant, Masters in Human Nutrition, Masters in Acupuncture, Doctorate in Chiropractic, Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine, and most recently added, a Doctorate in Health Sciences Degree.

In addition, UB offers graduate programs in Engineering, Education, Business, Counseling and Human Resources. By offering shared educational and clinical opportunities, UB intends to develop an integrated program of study, utilizing existing resources.

To learn how MSDH students fulfill these program requirements, visit our Course Offerings page for detailed course information and the program schedule for the Master of Science in Dental Hygiene (MSDH) program curriculum.
