University of Idaho female science students works in lab


Explore beyond the known.

At Idaho, you go beyond intellectual and physical boundaries and venture into the unfamiliar. Whether it be through research or world travel, you learn to ask meaningful questions, gain out-of-your-comfort-zone experiences, and build the global perspectives you need to succeed in this increasingly interconnected world.

Do research that matters.

The opportunity for undergraduate research is a clear advantage at University of Idaho. As early as your freshman year, you are in the lab or in the field contributing to pioneering research addressing the globe’s toughest problems. For instance, you could trek through Idaho’s wilderness area—the largest in the lower 48 states—gathering data for climate change research; test clean-energy technologies in world-class labs; conduct biological experiments to improve human health; and much more.

Think global.

What better way to increase your understanding of the world than to get out in it? Immerse yourself in a different culture and spend a semester or longer in one of 63 countries through our Study Abroad Program, one of the most extensive university study abroad programs in the nation. Or, apply to the National Exchange Program for opportunities to study a year at another school in the U.S., Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands. Shorter international field trips are also offered through many academic apartments.
