The graduate programs in the College of Arts and Sciences support Seattle University’s mission to educate the whole person for a life of leadership and service. Central to that mission, and guided by its Jesuit heritage, the graduate programs emphasize ethical reflection as essential for the complete professional life in addition to such skills as critical thinking and effective communication. To achieve these goals and to create a community of learners, classes are kept small and active learning is practiced. The availability of faculty and students to each other is a hallmark of Seattle University’s educational mission.
