Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

Boise State University employs an enhanced service learning component to both undergraduate and graduate learning. In the MPA program, service learning enabled application of public administrative theory through the continuation of a previous investigation into food insecurity on the Boise State campus. Our class built on the recommendation to address food insecurity by researching current university food pantry models in the United States and through a review of related literature. In addition, we interviewed local public administrators confronted by student food insecurity issues, as well as local community based food pantry managers and volunteers. The result of the service learning component was a presentation given to local non-profit leaders, Boise State administrators, and legislative representatives concerning food pantry implementation and sustainability practices, marketing and data collection practices, and collaborative partnership suggestions for a food pantry on Boise State University's campus. Through the innovative service learning component of the MPA coursework, what was once only theoretically analyzed and debated became conceptually implemented and applied for the betterment of both my fellow graduate students and I, and the Boise State student population. I would highly recommend the MPA program for this component of learning alone.

Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2018

The Educational Technology program at Boise State University has, without a doubt, made me a better educator. I have always be competent with technology but was definitely a bit intimidated by it. Through the classes I took and products I created over the course of this program I have become significantly less intimidated by technology, but more importantly I've learned so much about myself and the products I'm capable of creating utilizing technology. This is turn is brought into my classroom benefiting my students and their learning experience as well. The instructors in this program are extremely helpful and easy to communicate with and the online nature of the program lets you earn the degree in a flexible manner. As a full time teacher and single mother this program was the perfect fit for me and one I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to become more dynamic in their skills for educational or technology markets.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

The Educational Leadership program at Boise State has been an amazing experience which has challenged me to change my view of administrators of public schools. We began with a weekend of team building and have continued to build relationships with our fellow students as well as our instructors. All of this has run parallel to fantastic learning challenges and project based learning assignments.

Degree: Communications (Speech & Rhetorical Studies)
Graduation Year: 2017

The communication program offers diverse areas of study along with an incredible staff that are available to guide students through the graduate process. The program offers thesis, projects, or tests in order to obtain your degree. All of the professors work on their own scholarship research and teach graduates how to publish their work or get into communication conferences. The experience is invaluable and also very challenging.

Degree: Industrial/Organizational Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Before entering the Organizational Performance and Workplace Learning (OPWL) program at Boise State University, I did extensive research to find the perfect Master's program for me. The advisors at Boise State University from the start have helped show support through encouragement, words of wisdom, and assistance in tailoring my program to suit my needs. Although the program is fully online, I still receive the same care and commitment as I would have through meeting advisors and professors in person. The faculty and staff hold a genuine passion for what they do, and they remain engaged in and fascinated by what they teach their students. The care that I receive, alongside the objectives-driven curriculum, gives me the support I need to give all I can to this program while still maintain a full schedule, to keep learning and striving to reach my full potential. I am beyond grateful for this program and the growth it fosters in its students.

Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2006

The Boise State University Education Technology online graduate degree is perfect for those that need flexibility in their schedule and who have a need t learn current tools to support them in their career.. I have been extremely successful in this program because I can focus on my course work at times that are conducive for me. The freedom to work on homework or projects at 2 AM or 2 PM is invaluable for a person that works full-time and is trying to earn a Masters. There is a strong sense of community in the BSU EDTECH classes-more than when I was earning my undergraduate and attending classes on campus. The online community also brings a plethora of diversity. There are people from all over the world and from a multitude of professions. The other aspect I find helpful is the ability to interact with the advisers and professors. They are eager and diligent about responding to questions and supporting students. The information in the classes can most of the time be implemented in work projects or work projects can be implemented into the lesson of the class. It's not just busy work or arbitrary reading! I am thankful for the support and networking opportunities of the BSU EDTECH program. I highly recommend this program.
