How Boise State Online Faculty Can Help You Prepare for a Career

Two people work together at a table.

A degree from Boise State Online can be incredibly versatile when entering the workforce. But learning in an online environment may seem intimidating at first. If you’re hesitant about the attention and assistance you’ll receive from your online instructors, rest assured that Boise State Online faculty will be the perfect fit to help you reach your educational goals.

Award-Winning and Accredited

Boise State recently received national rankings for multiple online programs by U.S. News and World Report, thanks largely to faculty credentials and training. Boise State Online bachelor’s programs rank in the top 16% in the nation, meaning you can take classes from Boise State Online with the assurance that you’re receiving some of the best instruction in the country.

Boise State Online faculty know what it takes to teach in the virtual classroom and provide the same support and quality you can receive from our highly regarded on-campus programs. Our award-winning faculty will offer a high degree of interactive support on your way to achieving your educational goals.

Boise State writing professor Clyde Moneyhun knows all too well the potential barriers online learning can present. But after experiencing the online learning environment himself, he said an online education can actually provide benefits you wouldn’t get in an in-person classroom.

“When you teach a face-to-face class, there are the bold kids, the five kids in class who do all the talking, the five kids who never say a word and the rest of us, like me, in between. Well, in an online class, oh no, everybody talks, and everybody talks about the same amount,” Moneyhun said.

Real-World Opportunities

Boise State Online students and faculty are constantly engaging with their communities. With more than 700 full-time faculty and 500 part-time faculty at your disposal, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved.

Teresa Rountree and Christina Jones, both enrolled in the Online Master of Social Work program, currently work in the field as a part of their degree. With the help of their dedicated fieldwork coordinators, Jones and Rountree were able to find opportunities close to home.

Isaiah Moroshan, meanwhile, is on his way to graduating from the Bachelor of Science in Cyber Operations and Resilience program at Boise State. While he plans to pursue his master’s after graduation, Moroshan said he first came to the program because of its real-world application and evolving, cutting-edge curriculum.

“As a non-traditional, remote, multidisciplinary studies student, the interaction was huge for me — just to have questions and answers face-to-face and a live discussion. I’ve never had a high school teacher, any college professor, or anyone ever be that involved, ever.”
– Charlie Brizzee, Boise State Online Student

“The faculty’s support is super important to me. It’s nice to know that they’re invested in my success.”
– Meghan Rickelman, Mountain Home CIP and Boise State Online student

“The enhanced and specialized support from staff and faculty allows students to concentrate on what is most important – life responsibilities. This program and its faculty and staff support are designed around alleviating those pressure points. This allows for a healthy life balance during the student’s education.”
