The Seattle University Education Abroad Office seeks to facilitate intellectual and intercultural experiences that contribute to students’ lives of leadership and service in the Jesuit tradition.
While participation in any particular study abroad program is neither a requirement nor an entitlement of a Seattle University degree, several choices of major or scholarship programs require some kind of international experience.
For a list of eligible programs and current policy governing study abroad participation during any quarter at Seattle University, please consult with the Education Abroad Office or website: seattleu.edu/studyabroad. Applicants to SU sponsored, SU approved and non-SU study abroad programs must seek university approval and file required paperwork with the Education Abroad Office. Eligibility generally includes good academic standing, a clear conduct record and permission of the major advisor. Several programs have additional eligibility requirements. The university will not approve participation in study abroad in countries for which the United States Department of State has issued a Travel Warning.
In addition to quarter-long study abroad opportunities, most Seattle University colleges and schools offer faculty directed programs each summer. For the undergraduate, these programs add an international field-study component to courses taught during the spring quarter. For example, students in the Costa Rica field study course attend Biology 101 lectures during the spring quarter, and then conduct labs in Costa Rica in an intensive, compressed format. Please consult with the Education Abroad website for more information: seattleu.edu/studyabroad.
