At Antioch University Seattle, students are valued as potential differences in the world. We approach education through ways people actually learn about the world. Growth and performance of students is measured through narrative assessments that illuminate the learner’s understanding not only of what is learned, but how, and under what conditions. We celebrate the wisdom of the head and the heart that are essential to wholeness.
Our programs engage learners in a discipline’s essential literature, action-research, and reflective practice. As classroom activities and knowledge add breadth and depth to personal awareness, you will appreciate how self-knowledge precedes and accompanies all learning. At AUS you will learn how to learn through traditional academic venues and practices but also through experiential hands-on activities and direct-practice realization. Faculty can help sharpen your individual learning style as valuable alternative paths to problem solving, decision-making, and design of sustainable solutions to community and environmental issues.
