Rice University is a leading research institution that fosters diversity and an intellectual environment that produces the next generation of leaders and advances tomorrow’s thinking. Over the past century, it has been able to uphold its founding president’s vision of an institution, of the highest grade while still providing a superior education to students at tuition levels much lower than comparable schools. As an integral part of the university's mission, it seeks a broadly diverse student body where educational diversity increases the intellectual vitality of education, scholarship, service and communal life at Rice.
Rice offers more than 50 undergraduate majors across six divisions of study, including Architecture, Engineering, Humanities, Music, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences. Additionally, minors, interdisciplinary and pre-professional programs complement the comprehensive curriculum, with multiple opportunities for research and collaboration. Study Abroad is committed to providing high quality academic based educational programs in collaboration with prestigious international universities and select program providers. Experiential learning is a core component to intellectual life at the university, giving students opportunities for internships, research and study on campus and off, in Houston and around the world, expanding the foundation of classroom learning and adding to the dynamic educational experience.
The university is located on a 300 acre tree-lined campus in Houston. The campus features more than 70 major buildings with architectural elements that are uniquely Rice. It is accessible by air, car and public transportation.
