Master’s Degree in Dental Science

Specialisations:

  • Periodontist and Oral Implantology 

  • Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopaedics 

The main objective of the Master’s Degree in Dental Science is to train specialists in dentistry and, particularly, the branches of implantology, orthodontics and dentofacial orthopaedics.

It has an international outlook, so it sets out to meet the demands of students from a variety of geographical locations (particularly, Asia and Latin America). Thus, a blended-learning programme has been designed in which theory is taught online and internships are offered in prestigious centres in the students’ home countries.

The demand for high-quality and specialised training offered by world-renowned universities such as the Universitat Jaume I (which is one of the top 500 in world rankings) is increasing among dentistry professionals. Additionally, they demand training that enables them to undertake doctoral studies.

The programme is taught by internationally-renowned specialised lecturers.

It has a multidisciplinary approach since its lecturers comprise professionals from a wide variety of fields, such as engineering, biomedicine and, of course, clinical specialists.

OBJECTIVES

The objective of the master's degree course is to offer dentists, preferably with clinical experience, specific training in dental science.

Another objective of the course will be to ensure its graduates acquire a set of generic as well as specific competencies within the field of dentistry. One aspect that can be highlighted among the specific competencies is that of offering students basic training that enables them to improve their ability to carry out diagnoses and to plan the respective treatments.

The course is made up of 17 compulsory subjects (58 ECTS credits), 16 optional subjects (18 ECTS credits), 3 internships (30 ECTS credits) and 1 master's thesis (20 ECTS credits).

The first academic year will consist of 66 ECTS credits and the second will have a total of 60. During the first year, there will be a greater number of compulsory subjects (58 ECTS credits) with only 7 optional ECTS credits and an internship worth 7 ECTS credits. In the second year there will be only 6 compulsory credits but 11 optional credits, internships will account for 23 ECTS credits and the master's thesis will be worth 20 ECTS credits.
