Much of the coursework will fulfill general education and Boise State’s Foundations program requirements, which will include math, arts, English composition, social science and humanities courses. After completing general education courses, students will fulfill major concentration requirements or take electives in their preferred area of study.
Some college level courses contain mature and sensitive content. These courses may include class discussions that might be uncomfortable for certain students.
Additionally, 15 of the 60 credits a student earns to receive Boise State’s associate degree must be taken aligned with Boise State. Students planning to earn a Boise State associate degree need to meet the requirements of the catalog that is in effect when first enrolled or of any subsequent catalog year.
