The Master of Science in Oral Biology (MSOB) degree program is designed for outstanding students who are interested in integrating more extensive research into their postgraduate education.

Candidates receive the MSOB degree after completion of both their specialty training and the Master’s curriculum, which consists of didactic, seminar and research practicum courses. Research activities form the core of this program and students are expected to participate in a project of sufficient scope and intensity. Presentation of an in-depth review of the relevant literature along with a manuscript reporting the results of the research are required for graduation.
