Supplemental Activities

Choose one activity from the following four:

  • Demonstrate competency through the 1350 level in a language other than English by successful course completion or acceptable performance on the Modern Language Competency Examination.  The course may not be taken on a pass-fail, correspondence, or audit basis.  Competency in languages not offered by the Modern Language Department may be acceptable if approved by the International Business Program Director and demonstrated to the Modern Language Department.
  • Complete a 3-5 credit internship (or the equivalent on a not-for-credit basis) with a company involved in international business pre-approved by the International Business Program Director.  See the Albers Placement Center regarding for-credit internships and the International Academic Advisor regarding not-for-credit internships.
  • Participate in an international experience pre-approved by the International Business Programs Director.  May include studies abroad, SU short-term summer field study, or other international experiences pre-approved by the International Business Programs Director.  Only coursework verified through the Education Abroad course approval process will be eligible to earn transfer credit towards the SU degree.
  • Participation in Seattle University’s International Development Internship Program may satisfy 5 credits of minor electives.
