Meeting the Changing Needs of Students 

^TOP 


A dynamic component of Seattle University graduate studies was first offered in 1948, with a master’s degree in a division of the College of Arts and Sciences. Additional graduate degree programs have been introduced over the years, primarily to meet the needs of working professionals. Today, more than 3,200 graduate and professional students are enrolled in full- and part-time programs. While teaching is the heart of the enterprise, Seattle University’s graduate programs strive to meet the changing academic and service-level needs of our diverse student body while retaining a high value on personal interactions.

The academic deans are responsible for administration and supervision of all programs leading to a degree. The colleges or schools with associated departments provide courses of instruction for graduate students, direct their studies and conduct examinations, as well as maintain requirements and make recommendations for degree programs.

Graduate admission is granted through the director of graduate admission in consultation with the appropriate graduate program coordinator. The university’s registrar supervises academic transactions involving registration and awarding degrees.
