Brigham-Young University - Provo, UT

The mission of Brigham Young University — founded, supported, and guided by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — is to assist individuals in their quest for perfection and eternal life. That assistance should provide a period of intensive learning in a stimulating setting where a commitment to excellence is expected and the full realization of human potential is pursued.

BYU seeks to develop students of faith, intellect, and character who have the skills and the desire to continue learning and to serve others throughout their lives. These are the common aims of all education at BYU. Both those who teach in the classroom and those who direct activities outside the classroom are responsible for contributing to this complete educational vision. A BYU education should be:

  • Spiritually Strengthening
  • Intellectually Enlarging
  • Character Building
  • Leading to Lifelong Learning and Service

Academic Life

A bachelor's degree from Brigham Young University consists of the core (general education and religious education) and the major. These complement each other and ideally are integrated throughout the student's journey to obtain a bachelor's degree. The skills and knowledge derived from a robust liberal arts education equip students with competencies that provide versatility in employment and a foundation for life-long learning and service.  

The integration of sacred and secular knowledge is the hallmark of a BYU education. While the Aims of a BYU Education states that all disciplines should be a "bathed in the light and color of the restored gospel," religion courses engage the student mind and heart in an ever deeper understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ through close and meticulous study of the scriptures and teachings of the living prophets.
