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 the Education Abroad Policy and Procedure page. Graduate students who seek to enroll in non-SU education abroad programs must seek university approval and file required paperwork with the Education Abroad office. Several programs have additional eligibility requirements. The university will not approve study abroad participation in countries for which the United States Department of State has issued a travel warning.

Several graduate programs offer faculty-directed programs each summer. For more information visit
