New genetic genealogy course from the University of Strathclyde

The University of Strathclyde in Scotland will be starting a new eight-week online course in the autumn on "Genetic genealogy: an introduction". The aim of the course is to "impart a working knowledge of the scientific and technological aspects of genetic genealogy and teach the skills needed to interpret DNA test results for genealogy". The new course complements the university's existing range of genealogy courses.

For those interested in gaining accreditation, there is an option to gain 10 credits at SCQF (Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework) level 7 on the satisfactory completion of two assessments.

Further information can be found at the bottom of the following webpage:

More details will be available in due course.

The University of Strathclyde also offer a range of online postgraduate level courses. Further details can be found at:
