Are you looking to take the next step in your
dental hygiene career? Ohio State’s online master’s in Dental Hygiene
program prepares students to become future leaders and educators in the field. This completely online program focuses on
preparing you for a career as a dental hygiene educator through curriculum focused in education
and research. Additionally, the program provides field experiences
and an individualized education specific to your career goals. My favorite part of teaching for this program
is really seeing students grow. While all our courses are delivered all online,
I know all of my students’ faces, I know what they look like, I know what they sound like
and we interact in real-time through the computer in several courses in the program. Our students have had a lot of success once
they leave our program and one thing that we are really proud of is our first cohort
that graduated from our program now all have teaching positions in some capacity in dental
hygiene programs. Ohio State’s world renown faculty from the
university’s College of Dentistry will equip you with the dental hygiene knowledge, educational
methodology, and research analysis skills you need. They’ll help you master the theory and practice
of laboratory, preclinical, and clinical dental hygiene instruction. I have always loved and always wanted to come
to Ohio State. They have had a wonderful program that I was
always interested in. My favorite part of the degree program is
the fact that I am able to manage my time. If you have a deadline, you can adjust your
weekly schedule accordingly and that is very nice to do when you’re working full-time. The program can be completed in 2 years as
a full-time student or up to 5 years studying part-time. In addition to classes, you will complete
an internship to apply the skills learned from your coursework and a thesis to demonstrate
mastery in your research area of interest. We’re developing the educators who will teach
the next generation of dental hygienists. Earning a master’s degree will lead to more
development and growth opportunities for our graduates. We are proud to help them in the next steps
of their career. A master’s degree from Ohio State, an institution
with unparalleled tradition of excellence and leadership, distinguishes our graduates
among their peers and provides a valuable foundation for success. If you’re ready to take the next step toward
