- The program requires prior genealogical experience. It will be assumed that students have spent significant amounts of time searching for multiple generations of a family through record repositories and online sources, then documenting their results. Throughout their course of study, students will be expected to research many genealogical problems and write reports.
- Students must be able to complete the following tasks and communicate their findings in clear English: access many websites, work within multiple windows, effectively use web browsers, edit documents, read tracked changes in a document, and upload and download forms, photographs, deeds, PDFs, and census data.
- While a bachelor’s degree is not required, we recommend either a bachelor’s degree, or significant related work experience.
