Dental Hygiene (+2 BS)
Our online degree-completion program is intended for hygienists who already hold an associate degree to earn a bachelor’s degree. This two-year program is designed to provide a convenient option for students who plan to work while earning their degree.
Graduates of this Bachelor of Science degree-completion program have access to more educational and career opportunities than students who have only completed an associate degree in Dental Hygiene. Career areas for bachelor-level grads include jobs in dental hygiene research, sales, public health, and education.
A student with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene will be able to:
- Explore various occupational settings such as public health, education, sales, and research
- Study further at the graduate level
- Broaden their knowledge base and education experience in dental hygiene and general education courses
- Demonstrate skills in critical thinking and evidence-based research
- Demonstrate a commitment to lifelong learning
All courses are completed online, no campus visits are required, and the student has six years to complete the required courses for the bachelor’s degree. The degree may be earned while the student is employed as a practitioner or working as a full-time student.
This program holds articulation agreements with Bristol Community College, Cape Cod Community College, Middlesex Community College, Monroe Community College, Mount Wachusett Community College, New Hampshire Technical Institute, Quinsigamond Community College, Springfield Technical Community College, and Tunxis Community College associate degree dental hygiene programs. These agreements are designed to maximize the number of credits students can transfer to Vermont Tech.
All DHY and BIO courses must be completed with a grade of C or better to continue in the program.
