The Oral Biology track is offered through the NYU Graduate School of Arts & Science Department of Biology in collaboration with the NYU College of Dentistry (NYUCD). MCAT or DAT scores may be submitted in lieu of the GRE (when applying, leave the GRE section blank and upload the MCAT/DAT scores as supplemental information).
Students are awarded the Master’s in Biology degree on completion of 36 credits with an average of B (GPA=3.0) or better and a research paper. 24 of the credits must be completed in Biology courses or courses cross listed with Biology (BIOL-GA), while up to 12 credits can be completed in graduate courses offered through other departments such as the Department of Biomaterials. The qualifying paper (also called the Master’s thesis) can be written based on original laboratory research results (laboratory-based thesis) or an in-depth literature study of an area of oral biology (library-based thesis). The thesis is typically mentored by a faculty member at the NYUCD.
