It is the goal of the Education Abroad Office (EAO) to assist faculty in developing high-quality international programs that offer a connection to our mission and values of academic excellence, diversity and empowerment of leaders for a just and humane world. Our international programs should reflect elements that enhance the curriculum in ways that cannot be accomplished by offering it on campus alone.
When developing an international program proposal, there are several things to take into consideration. First, program development takes time. At least one year of lead time is strongly recommended. Each Seattle University College and School has its own requirements for the program proposal and approval process. It is advised to consult with your dean to find out which deadline to meet.
Consult with the Education Abroad Office for support, policy guidance and curricular considerations, as well as assistance with identifying in-country resources.
*If a student plans to graduate prior to the start of the program, please consult with EAO regarding proper paperwork and procedures.
