BYU and BYU Idaho Classes in Genealogy
Brigham Young University is one of the only the very few university level institutions in the United States offering a formal degree in genealogy. Both BYU in Provo, Utah and BYU-Idaho located in Rexburg, Idaho offer both resident and independent study classes in genealogy. BYU in Provo offers both free and paid Independent Study classes in genealogy or family history.
I took a long series of paid, home study courses on genealogy from Brigham Young University over a five year period and they were some of the most involved and difficult classes I experienced during my post-secondary years, including my years in graduate school and law school. So don't expect to find some watered down version of a college level course, these are challenging and very educational offerings. These classes require a considerable amount of work.
BYU-Idaho offers a Certificate in Family History Research.
