Seattle University has an Education Abroad Office that handles options for student study abroad programs. There are opportunities to go for a quarter, semester, or full school year. Most of these programs are aimed at undergraduate students, as there are a very limited number of classes one can take as a graduate student and receive transfer credit.
In addition to Seattle University's study abroad opportunities, Albers offers a number of short-term courses abroad lead by faculty members, and exchange programs.
The Education Abroad Office provides a list of global opportunities that are great fits for Albers students. Programs in Beijing, China; Seoul, South Korea; Madrid, Spain; and Tokyo, Japan are just a few of the programs suggested for Albers undergraduate students. Undergraduate students interested in studying abroad are required to complete the following five steps in order:
For those students interested in International Economic Development, Albers also offers the International Development Internship Program, which is a 20 credit, three-phase academic program. For more information visit the IDIP webpage.
Study Tour Courses are two week in-country classes. The groups explore a country to learn about the culture and history, but also visit local companies for presentations on international business topics. The subject of the course is dependent upon which class you are taking. Classes are given in marketing, economics, e-commerce, to name a few.
Students attend pre-departure classes to familiarize you with the country you are going to visit and begin your class report, which is due at the end of the course. Upon your return, there is a course briefing.
