The Graduate College is the only academic unit at Boise State University whose sole concern and primary advocacy is graduate education. The Graduate College provides institutional oversight for more than 70 graduate curricula established across six academic colleges, with approximately 2,000 registered graduate students each semester. These programs span the breadth of graduate education, from practice-oriented master’s programs that prepare students for leadership roles in a wide variety of professional settings, to research focused Ph.D. programs that develop the next generation of scholars.
