Hands-On Experience

Everything we teach is built from the foundation of the social, natural and physical sciences. With this solid science approach, coupled with hands-on learning and experiences, you’ll have the ability to formulate innovative and defensible decisions about evaluating and sustaining our ecosystems.

Our natural playground
In addition to our renowned faculty and thriving students, the location of the University of Idaho Moscow campus is one of our program’s best assets. Nestled between Moscow Mountain and the hills of the Palouse, we boast a one-of-a-kind natural playground and laboratory. We also offer a wilderness research field station in central Idaho, which is one of largest pieces of land in the nation that is undisturbed by human activity.

In our college, you learn by doing. Field trips and outdoor lab work will give you a holistic view of natural resource management, where you can see firsthand how decisions made in the classroom play out in the real world. You can gain more hands-on experience by participating in one of our many student groups and leadership opportunities. The University of Idaho Palouse Unit of the American Fisheries Society, for example, hosts events and is involved in many service projects related to fisheries conservation and recreation management issues.
