Graduate Programs in Idaho
Have you ever considered going to a graduate program in Idaho? It’s the 14th biggest state in America, running from Canada at its northern border all the way down to Nevada. It’s a mountainous state, straddling the western side of the Continental Divide. Many people love Idaho because of wide-open spaces — despite its size, only about 1.6 million people live within its borders. Its largest city is the state capital, Boise, with just over 200,000 people.
When many Americans think of Idaho, they think of potatoes. Idaho does indeed grow a lot of them, but the state has a lot more than that going for it. Idaho is known as the Gem State, for its 72 varieties of precious and semi-precious stones like sapphire, opal and amethyst — second in the world only to the entire continent of Africa. And Idaho is abundant in wildlife like bears, wolves and salmon. The Birds of Prey Wildlife Area has the world’s densest population of hawks, falcons and nesting eagles.
The state is also renowned for its spectacular outdoor scenery. Its national parks, like Yellowstone, Nez Perce and the Craters of the Moon, are world-famous. Aside from its towering mountains, Idaho has beautiful forests, pristine lakes and gorgeous rivers. In fact, Idaho boasts over 3000 miles of rivers — more than any other state. Hell’s Canyon, on the Snake River, is North America’s deepest river gorge — at 8,000 feet, it’s even deeper than the Grand Canyon. Rising 212 feet, Shoshone Falls is sometime called “the Niagara of the West.”
Idaho is rich in history. Tribes like the Shoshone and Nimi’ipuu (or Nez Perce) have lived in the region for millennia. The Lewis and Clark expedition passed through what would become Idaho in 1805. The famous Sacajawea, who helped the expedition through some tricky mountain passes, was a Lemhi Shoshone. The Nez Perce helped the expedition with provisions and canoes. Later in the 19th century, the Oregon Trail passed through Idaho and to this day there are still buildings standing that fate from the Gold Rush. In the early 1920s, in the town of Rigby, inventor Philo T. Farnsworth first sketched out the technology that would make television possible. For that reason, Rigby, calls itself “the Birthplace of Television.”
There are literally dozens of options if you’re thinking about Idaho graduate programs. For more on graduate study in the Gem State, see below.
