Degree Requirements

REQUEST INFORMATION

From Seattle University's 2018-2019 Graduate Catalog
All required and elective courses are 3 credits, unless indicated otherwise. Courses taken to satisfy prerequisites do not count for any credits toward graduation.

The program is designed as a 12 month, full-time cohort program requiring the completion of 48 credits including 14 three-credit courses and a six-credit capstone course.

I. Preparatory Work

Once a student is accepted, they complete any needed prerequisites via Harvard Online courses. Our acceptance timeline leaves plenty of time to complete these online prerequisites, and the Bridge program subsidizes them so that you are able to complete them free of charge. The courses are: 1) financial accounting, 2) spreadsheet analysis (excel) and 3) statistics. These online prerequisites may be waived by previous course work in these topics, which is evaluated by our admission staff. In the acceptance letter we will specify which ones you need to take. Completing them is a condition of beginning fall classes. Please contact Christina Hughes at hughesc@seattleu.edu with questions.
