Georgia State To Offer Online Degree Completion Program for Registered Dental Hygienists

ATLANTA–Georgia State University has received University System of Georgia Board of Regents approval to offer an online associate degree (A.S.) to bachelor of science (B.S.) degree completion program for registered dental hygienists.

"This new degree program will provide a way for our students and professionals around Atlanta to gain the knowledge that will expand their career opportunities," said Wendy Hensel, provost and senior vice president for academic affairs. "The A.S. to B.S. completion online degree reflects our commitment to grow high-quality online academic programs that meet market demand and our region's workforce needs."

With an aging population and research continuing to link oral health to overall health, the market demand for dental services will increase. This program helps fulfill the needs of dental hygiene educators and practitioners. Housed in the Byrdine F. Lewis College of Nursing and Health Professions, which has nursing and several health professions programs, the program will also be unique in offering an interdisciplinary education.

Earning a B.S. degree in dental hygiene opens additional career opportunities for hygienists beyond direct patient care in a dental office. With a bachelor's degree, graduates may manage a dental practice or a public health clinic. They may become more in demand in private dental clinics or teach dental hygiene in a technical college. The degree is also a stepping stone toward a graduate degree for those interested in research or teaching at the university level.

The new bachelor's in dental hygiene results from a collaboration between Georgia State's Perimeter College and its Lewis College.

Georgia State is the first tier-one research university and the second college or university in the Atlanta metropolitan area to offer an R.D.H. (registered dental hygienist) to B.S degree completion program.

Antioch University Lowers Tuition for Its Online Graduate Management Programs - PRNewswire

Posted: 18 Nov 2020 07:00 AM PST

YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio, Nov. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Antioch University announced a close to 20% reduction in tuition costs for its online Graduate Management Programs. Beginning January 2021, tuition for new and current students in the online Master of Business Administration (MBA), MA in Nonprofit Management (MANM), and Master of Human Services Administration (MHSA) will be $550 per credit hour. The program requirements have also been reduced to 33-semester credits, making the management programs even more affordable without diminishing their quality or substance. Students can begin the programs at one of six entry points throughout the year.

"Access to affordable higher education is a social and racial justice imperative," said Dr. Terry Ratcliff, Antioch University Provost for Distance and Extended Education. "Consequently, Antioch's administration and management faculty want to remove barriers for those who may be held back in their educational pursuits by limited financial resources."

Antioch University is a nonprofit institution that has prioritized making a difference for nearly 170 years. Antioch's programs educate the whole person by cultivating personal growth, pragmatic idealism, and the achievement of professional goals.

"These are the sort of times in which Antioch has excelled because it knows how to rise to the occasion of such chaotic periods," said Dr. Mary Ann Short, Director of Online Graduate Management Programs. "It does so by pursuing, in new and fresh ways, the mission to which it has held steadfastly for more than a century and a half: equipping people to lead in the advancement of social, economic, and environmental justice."  

Antioch's MBA features the mutual importance of people, planet, and profit in building and leading successful organizations and communities in the 21st century, often referred to as the triple bottom line approach. The MBA offers concentrations in Sustainable Business, Leadership and Teams, Healthcare Leadership, Nonprofit Leadership, and Self-Designed.

The MA in Nonprofit Management is designed for working professionals ready for the next step in their career. The MANM supports students in building the practical skills, professional network, and knowledge to increase their impact, advance their career, and excel at their mission.

The Master's degree in Human Services Administration prepares service-minded practitioners who seek the skills and knowledge to lead in organizations where they can help positively impact the lives of others. 

Antioch University uses a narrative assessment rather than letter grades to provide a meaningful, actionable evaluation of learning. This style of evaluation prepares students for a career in professional settings where success is often measured by presentations and written communications. Faculty are active practitioners in their field. They are engaged and present throughout the class. GMATs are accepted but not required.

Antioch University Online is the nationwide and online division of Antioch University. The core values of social justice, service to the community, and lifelong learning lie at the heart of the Bachelor's degree completion programs, Master's degrees in Business Administration (MBA), Nonprofit Management, Human Services Administration, Individualized Studies, and EdD in Educational & Professional Practice. antioch.edu/auonline
