Welcome Aboard! Let’s get started!
Boise State University’s MS in Genetic Counseling program is dedicated to developing and supporting a diverse student population. The coursework is designed for genetic counselors by genetic counselors and informed by other relevant professionals thereby allowing for adaptation and personalization for the discipline. Graduates will have extensive experience with online education and gain skills to use technology in the delivery of genetic services.
Courses have been designed using the Online Course Production Model. This process utilizes a multi-expert team to produce a high-quality online master course from which multiple highly qualified faculty can teach. Master course creation integrates diverse university resources to ensure the courses meet national standards and guidelines, including those related to copyright, accessibility, regular and substantive interaction with students (Higher Education Opportunity Act), and online course quality (based on Quality Matters™ Higher Education Standards, nationally recognized standards used to guide online course design).
