The Department of Oral and Craniofacial Science Graduate Program offers basic, translational, and clinical studies in oral biology, biomedical research and health that span spatial scales from the molecular and cellular levels to the whole organism level. Studies include fundamental biological phenomena related to the development, structure, and function of the craniofacial region and the development of new therapies, biomaterials, and diagnostic tools for the treatment of diseases and disorders in the craniofacial area.
Master of Science in Oral & Craniofacial Sciences
The Department of Oral and Craniofacial Sciences (DOCS) Master of Science Program requires two years to complete, where students can concentrate on Craniofacial and Dental Genetics or Craniofacial Tissue Regeneration.
Doctor of Philosophy in Oral & Craniofacial Sciences
The Department of Oral and Craniofacial Sciences (DOCS) PhD Program requires approximately four to five years to complete and employs a core curriculum which is separate from the MS Program. Again, students may concentrate on either Craniofacial and Dental Genetics or Craniofacial Tissue Regeneration.
