The MS Program in Biomaterials Science provides advanced training in research and science for two types ofstudents: (1) postgraduate dentists who may be enrolled concurrently in specialty programs and (2) non-dental students with a baccalaureate degree in the biological or engineering sciences. The program objectives are to provide training in modern materials science research methods and to equip students to critically analyze research and clinical literature. For dental graduates, this training will prepare students for clinical faculty positions. For non-dental students, this training will enhance opportunities for careers as educators in secondary schools and junior colleges, as well as, technicians and research associates in biological and engineering laboratories. The Masters in Biomaterials Science is also appropriate for students who wish to improve their background in preparation for admission to dental and medical schools and advanced graduate (PhD) programs.
