Enrolling as a New Student to DATM Program:
This institution offers a dual degree, Master’s and DATM, upon completing your admission requirements for both programs. Students may enroll in both programs together, in which case separate enrollment agreements for each programs will be signed simultaneously at the date of initial enrollment.
Transferring into the DATM Program:
Transfer credits may be approved for individual courses when a student has previously completed academic coursework at an accredited institution recognized by the Department of Education that meets the same course outcomes as the equivalent Dongguk University Los Angeles course. Transfer credit is based on academic equivalency among courses and must be less than five years old.
Students may apply for transfer credit and/or course exemption. The maximum number of credits for course exemptions and transfers granted is 50% of the total credits. Of that 50%, no more than 25% of the program clinical training requirements may be accepted as transfer or exemption credit. No more than 33% of the total credits in a post-master’s doctoral degree program may be transferred or exempted.
Enrolling as DATM Completion Program:
The applicant may complete a MSOM program and then enroll in a DATM Professional Doctorate completion track. The doctoral completion track requires 340 total hours, consisting of 300 hours or 30 quarter units of didactic instruction plus 40 hours or 2 quarter units of clinic instruction.
This program is designed to be completed by an individual who graduated from an ACAOM accredited/pre-accredited master’s level program and will allow the Master’s graduate to achieve doctorate competencies, earning the DATM degree. Students who enter this track complete the doctoral program requirements not included in the Master’s level training. This program is a component of the overall professional doctorate, not a separate, distinct program.
