We believe in gaining an education through hands-on learning and experiences.

You won’t be limited to just a classroom. USU’s 165 undergraduate degrees offer a wide spectrum of academic programs. From artistic expression to scientific exploration, from farmland to space – Aggies go wherever the research takes them. In fact, as a space-grant university and the number one space research-funded university in the nation, USU students send more experiments into space than any other university in the country.
