Premajor Studies

Kim Thomas, M.Ed., Director
Shanai Lectenberg, M.Ed., Advisor


Seattle University recognizes that many students come to the University wishing to explore academic programs and careers before committing themselves to a major. The Premajor Studies Program is intended to provide freshmen and sophomores with this opportunity while assuring they are well prepared for whatever direction they choose. Each student is assigned an advisor who not only assists in arranging the student’s program, but also aids in the process of making an academic major and career decision. The program is a function of Student Academic Services.

The Premajor Studies Program offers specialized services to guide students through the major exploration process. These services include: 

  • Personalized advising from professional staff
  • Information on academic majors at Seattle University

General Program Requirements

The Premajor Studies Program is for freshmen and sophomores only. Students must enroll in the core courses of Phase I and Phase II appropriate to their academic level. Students may apply for admittance into a major or professional school at any time in their freshman or sophomore year, but must do so prior to the attainment of junior status. Students who fail to apply for or be accepted into a major or professional school by the attainment of junior status are subject to dismissal from the university.
