Developing Life-Long Spiritual Perspectives

Religious Education is an integral part of a BYU-Idaho student’s college education and provides opportunities for simultaneous growth in gospel knowledge and understanding during their secular studies. Participating in religion courses can help students build habits of gospel study that continue long after their college years and are blessings to both the student and their posterity. Habits of gospel study will help individuals and families build and strengthen a spiritual foundation that will help them keep life-long spiritual perspectives in a world of chaos and endless distractions.
