The courses offered in the English Language and Culture Bridge are highly advanced, with a specific focus on university-level reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills.
Students at the beginning of their academic careers are usually expected to take courses in Academic Reading and Writing, Basic Writing (English 101), and Classroom Communication.
Students who transfer to Seattle University during their subsequent years of study, as well as graduate students, are expected to take courses that advance their strategic reading, writing, and academic speaking skills essential for success in the disciplines. In addition, the course work for transfer and graduate students concentrates on the American academic culture and the specific preparation for requirements at Seattle University.
In addition, undergraduate business majors and graduate students enrolled in the Albers School of Business attend a supplemental course (0 credits) in conjunction with a five-credit-hour class, Management 280.
