By building on the practical knowledge you already have while providing opportunities for professional growth, this degree will allow you to tailor many of your assignments to the needs of your workplace. The MSAH from East Tennessee State University is designed to give you choices about your course of study. You may elect to take courses that will build your degree more toward becoming a professional educator or you might choose the administration track or perhaps you want to do some of both. The program offers the flexibility you need to get the courses you want.
The M.S.A.H. helped me transition from a 30 year clinical career in dentistry to academia.
I first attended ETSU for a BSDH completion program almost 20 years after my AS degree
in Dental Hygiene. Five years after completing the BS degree I began the MSAH program
and started my career in academics. I am a huge fan of ETSU and their online programs.
Working full time I could not have completed these degrees without their online options.
