Dual Degree Programs
The School of Dentistry offers concurrent and dual degree in collaboration with the School of Public Health, and the School of Business.
The School of Public Health and the School of Dentistry offer a combined DDS/MPH degree. The vision of the combined degree program is to bridge the gap between clinical and public health practice for tomorrow’s leadership to improve the public’s dental health. The combined DDS/MPH curriculum takes five years to complete, including three summers. Students can enroll in the graduate degree in public health coursework during the third year of the DDS program.
The School of Dentistry and the College of Business and Economics have established a dual degree program with respect to the Master of Business Administration (MBA), offered by the College of Business and Economics, and the Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) offered by the School of Dentistry.
The MBA degree normally consists of 50 credit hours and the DDS degree normally consists of 206 credit hours. By coordinating the plan of study in both degree programs via the dual DDS/MBA degree, students will be able to obtain both an MBA and a DDS degree, two nationally accredited graduate degrees, in 244 (38 credit hours from MBA + 206 from DDS) credit hours.
