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.
Your intellectual adventure can take numerous forms. Complete an undergraduate Bachelor’s Degree (B.A.) in Liberal Studies by designing your curriculum, or follow the path of one of ten B.A. degree concentrations. Enter a cutting edge Master of Arts degree in the Center for Creative Change aimed to shift or enhance your present work. Enroll in our doctoral psychology program to study, research, and learn from esteemed professionals. Our clinical Master’s and Doctoral students receive state of the art training in our campus Psychology and Community Mental Health Clinic. Our Teacher Preparation program prepares teachers committed to social justice, and the MA in Education benefits experienced educators.
If you desire a progressive, student-centered education that is superior to merely earning required credits or complying with standards so common in large conventional universities, I invite you to contact the Office of Admissions or a faculty member. Our programs promote learning as social engagement both individually and in groups, fostering growth by learning with others, from others, and on behalf of others and the planet.
Come to Antioch University Seattle to learn; come also to share your learning as a transformative gift to the world.
