From prominent guest speakers to professional workshops, the innovative programs and events offered by the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences add value and inspire not only to the lives of the students, faculty and staff of the University of Idaho, but also to the lives of those in the Moscow community and the surrounding region. Please consider supporting one of these worthy programs:
Martin Scholars Program
The Martin Scholars is a program created to help undergraduate students be more competitive for post-graduation employment and admission to graduate programs. Students scholars work under the guidance of an expert faculty mentor, and become paid research interns working on major global issues.
Creative Writing Program
The Creative Writing program is an intense, three-year course of study that focuses on teaching, learning and foremost on the craft of writing. The curriculum provides practical training in fiction, poetry and/or creative nonfiction, as well as the chance to work in editing and publishing. The program is small by design; graduate workshops generally have 10 to 15 students enrolled. The faculty are themselves practicing, publishing and award-winning writers.
James A. and Louise McClure Center for Public Policy Research
The center aims to strengthen the relationship between science and public policy by introducing university students and the people of Idaho to significant topics, such as food supply, natural resources, energy, and sustainable communities. In addition, it fosters rational debate on issues and conducts research, publishes reports of findings, and provides public forums on topics of importance to the state, the region and the nation.
