Innovative Teaching & Learning

Every course, program, and initiative at BYU-Idaho is designed to fulfill that mission. Our commitment to innovative teaching and learning is coupled with a desire for lifelong spirituality and leadership. The result is a top-quality education offered in a caring and nurturing environment.
BYU-Idaho uses a unique, proactive teaching style called the Learning Model. Students learn how to prepare before class, teach each other, and apply what they learn to life outside the classroom.
Apply classroom knowledge in real-world settings with an internship. BYU-Idaho students earn practical experience in jobs with experts from across the globe. Each internship allows students to build strong ties and skills for future careers.
BYU-Idaho’s campus is busy throughout the year because of the Three Track System. This unique calendar offers more classes to students during the year.
Students can finish degrees faster and graduate sooner with online courses. BYU-Idaho’s online courses give students more flexibility on and off campus. All courses have the same structure and teaching style as on-campus classes.
BYU-Idaho seeks to develop students who are spiritually focused and ready for leadership in their families, the workplace, and the community.
