Associate of Science Degree
The Department of Dental Hygiene does award an Associate of Science degree at the completion of the two-year dental hygiene program. You must complete all Associate of Science general education requirements — which include several program prerequisite courses — to earn the degree in dental hygiene.
After being accepted into the program, you should expect to spend 35 to 40 hours on campus each week in lecture and clinical dental hygiene courses. The program is a "lock-step" design where students are admitted and continue through the program together, as a class.
