Since 1889 the University of Idaho has been leading Idaho, the Northwest and beyond. From architecture to law, art to science, business to engineering, environment to education, our students, faculty and alumni are pursuing their passions and making our communities richer along the way. Giving to the University of Idaho Foundation, Inc. helps keep the legacy of leading alive. History provides a broad, general view of human development, and a rigorous training of the mind. It is the study of the human experience in all aspects. An understanding of the past is essential to interpreting the present and to envisioning the future. History is by nature interdisciplinary and multi-cultural. Emphasis is on intellectual and cultural values and activities in political, social, economic, and religious institutions. A major in history can be used in government and military service, international relations, tourism, recreation, business and industry, and many other fields. It can also be used in preparation for study of the law, the ministry, and archival work and librarianship.
The University of Idaho is the stateï¿½s land-grant research university. From this distinctive origin and identity comes our commitment to enhance the scientific, economic, social, legal, and cultural assets of our state, and to develop solutions for complex problems facing society. We deliver on this commitment through focused excellence in teaching, research, outreach, and engagement in a collaborative environment at our residential main campus, regional centers, extension offices, and research facilities throughout the state. Consistent with the land-grant ideal, our outreach activities serve the state at the same time they strengthen our teaching as well as scholarly and creative capacities. Our teaching and learning includes undergraduate, graduate, professional, and continuing education offered through both resident instruction and extended delivery. Our educational programs are enriched by the knowledge, collaboration, diversity, and creativity of our faculty, students, and staff.
