Beyond The Classroom

A Seattle U degree in International Studies provides you plenty of chances to put your intellect and your expertise to work outside the classroom and the library. Make a change through community engagement or an internship with a nonprofit organization; take up professional development opportunities to hone your skills; apply for fellowships or conduct research with faculty.
