Degree Requirements

Genetic counseling students take approximately 15 credit hours per semester for  four semesters. These credit hours consist of didactic coursework, clinical practicum, and thesis research. Students are required to register for 3 credit hours in the summer between the first and second years when they complete a seven week clinical rotation. Additionally, students complete a master's thesis research project culminating in a manuscript suitable for publication.
