Master of Science Program in Dental Hygiene
The mission of the Master of Science program at the University of Maryland, Baltimore is to prepare the dental hygienist to assume advanced leadership roles in a diversity of health care settings, in academia, and in private industry. Through a variety of individualized educational and field experiences combined with a substantive core curriculum, adult learning skills are fostered. The program promotes the development of critical thinking professionals who are competent to pursue careers in dental hygiene education, research, public health, administration and management, in both the private and public sectors.
The Dental Hygiene program has paired up with the Department of Epidemiology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine to encourage dental hygienists to enroll in the Master of Health Sciences program. This program is an online Masters program which encompasses disciplines of medicine, nursing, law, social work, public health and dental hygiene. Our UMB campus offers other opportunities which we are exploring for our dental hygiene colleagues to expand their horizons.
Master of Science degree students are invited to join a process of learning for understanding and competence. You will be encouraged to be actively involved in learning that prepares you for independent, critical thinking and professional leadership. For further information please contact us at 410-706-7773.
