aims of a BYU education

data-content-type=""

Spiritually Strengthening

This ideal arises from the common purpose of all education at BYU — to build testimonies of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. It is a shared desire to "seek learning, even by study and also by faith." (D&C 88:118)

Intellectually Enlarging

The intellectual range of a BYU education is the result of an ambitious commitment to pursue truth. Members of the BYU community rigorously study academic subjects in the light of divine truth.

Character Building

A BYU education should reinforce integrity, reverence, modesty, self-control, courage, compassion, and industry. It aspires to develop in its students character traits that flow from the long-term application of gospel teachings.

Lifelong Learning & Service

Well-developed faith, intellect, and character prepare students for a lifetime of learning and service. They "enter to learn" and continue to learn as they "go forth to serve."
