Section 4: Policies for Education Specialist Programs

The Education Specialist (Ed.S.), is an advanced degree specifically designed for individuals who wish to develop advanced knowledge and theory beyond the master’s degree, but may not wish to pursue a doctoral degree. At Boise State University, admission requirements include a master’s degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution of higher education or from a non-U.S. institution of higher education that is judged equivalent to a U.S. master’s degree by the International Admissions Office, along with other Graduate College and program-specific requirements.

The curriculum of an Ed.S. program is a set of academic courses identified by the Boise State University as suitable for properly qualified students. The curriculum may include both specific courses and a selection of elective courses.
