Antioch offers two programs for students interested international programs and in integrating study abroad into their college studies: Antioch Education Abroad and LEAPNOW.
Through its affiliation with LEAPNOW: Transforming Education, Antioch offers an alternative freshman/ sophomore year called LEAPYEAR for students age 17-24 that allows a student to travel and study abroad for six months of the year. Antioch Education Abroad is also an alternative for any student currently in college who wishes to participate in study abroad.
In addition to LEAPYEAR and Antioch Education Abroad, there are a number of international students who choose to study here.
In January 2009, Franchesska Berry, a 2008-09 Fulbright Scholar, spent four months in Cairo, Egypt, teaching and performing the African and African-American dance she fashioned into a multicultural education program for her Antioch Seattle MA Education culminating project.
Fulbright Scholar James Sasongko came to Antioch Seattle’s Center for Creative Change and the Organizational Psychology* program from Indonesia and graduated in 2009. He hopes to work on an international level to facilitate change in organizations.
Vanessa D’Amelio is earning her master’s degree in Environment and Community. She traveled to Ethiopia as part of iLEAP, an organization whose executive director, Britt Yamamoto, is a core faculty member in the AUS Center for Creative Change.
