The M.S. in Dental Hygiene is offered entirely online. The courses are designed to be learner-centered in terms of scheduling, duration, learning materials, assignments, and interaction between faculty and students and among students. The online interaction is designed to encourage thoughtful and well-prepared discussions based on both the student’s command of the coursework and their personal dental hygiene experience.
Online courses leading to the M.S. in Dental Hygiene follow an accelerated 8-week format, allowing students to earn their degree at a full-time or a part-time pace while still maintaining their professional work schedule. Courses are conducted online and can be accessed at anytime from anywhere. Interaction with professors and other students is done through email, online discussion board and collaborative learning software (live, virtual classroom).
See more information in How Online Learning Works. Dental Hygiene master courses have specific requirements listed in their syllabi.
