Facts About Brigham Young University
Brigham Young University (BYU) is a private research university established in 1875 and located in the city of Provo, Utah. Run by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), BYU goes by several unofficial mottos, including “The glory of God is intelligence,” and “Enter to learn, go forth to serve.”
BYU’s academic focus is on bachelor’s programs with over 170 majors being offered at various colleges. The College of Family, Home, and Social Sciences, for example, covers departments that study patterns of human behavior from a variety of disciplinary approaches. Departments under this college include Psychology, Geography, Economics, and Social Work.
Another college, The College of Fine Arts and Communications, helps students achieve a well-rounded liberal arts foundation through rigorous training in theories, histories, and methods related to their chosen major. The departments under this college are Communication, Dance, Design, Music, Art, Theater and Media Arts. Curricula for undergraduate programs include religious subjects such as LDS scripture, doctrine, and history, and Bible.
Students can also pursue graduate and doctoral studies at BYU with a total of 90 programs that cover a wide range of disciplines. Biochemistry, Computer Science, Instructional Psychology and Technology, and Wildlife and Wildlands Conservation are just some of the programs that have both an MA and Ph.D. offerings.
Brigham Young University is categorized as an “R2: Doctoral Universities – High Research Activity" and has "more selective, lower transfer-in" admissions. About 99% of the students are members of the LDS Church and as students, they follow an honor code that pertains to proper behavior in accordance with LDS teachings. For example, students must maintain academic honesty, follow prescribed dress codes and grooming standards, and not engage in premarital sex and homosexual behavior.
BYU has encountered several financial difficulties in its 145-year history that forced closures until in 1875 when then LDS Church president, Brigham Young, founded the Brigham Young Academy. Young’s vision was for the Academy to become a place where the children of the Latter-day Saints can receive an education without the “pernicious atheistic influences” that were predominant in many universities and colleges in the country.
Brigham Young Academy was dissolved in 1903 to give way to the Brigham Young High School and Brigham Young University. The university runs a large study abroad program in coordination with its satellite centers in Paris, London, and Jerusalem. BYU’s notable alumni include American inventor and television pioneer, Philo T. Farnsworth; physical chemist and man-made diamond inventor, H. Tracy Hall; and inventor of stereophonic sound, Harvey Fletcher.Read Less...
