Oral Health Sciences Curriculum

OralHealthSciCandidates for the MS in Oral Health Sciences (OHS) are required to complete a minimum of 32 graduate credit hours, including a final Capstone or Thesis project. While the majority of students complete the program in 12 months, there is an option for research if you chose to stay for more than one year.

The Program consists of 19 required credits (DMD Biochemistry, DMD Physiology, GMS Prevention and Oral Health Promotion and GMS Biomedical Information). The remaining credits are fulfilled with elective coursework as well as your Capstone or Thesis final project. Required courses are taken through the Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine (BUGSDM), while elective courses are taken through the Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine, Graduate Medical Sciences and can be tailored to meet the specific professional goals of each student.

The OHS program now enrolls a class of 40 in response to a highly qualified applicant pool. To maintain the rigorous graduate biomedical sciences curriculum and highly individualized and supportive culture of the program, OHS will move to a blended live lecture and video streaming format (50:50) for two Fall DMD courses.
