Seattle University Graduate Reviews

9 reviews
I came to Seattle University as a graduate student. My program used a cohort method where school counseling students learned alongside community mental health counselors before breaking up for internship. I loved the cohort program as it allowed similar fields to work together, thus allowing us to gain more knowledge about our own specialities, as well as another's. The campus is beautiful, the program was great. There were some hiccups here and there (such as class enrollment, educators, switching buildings/classrooms last minute), but they are pretty typical (in my experience and in my own opinion) in any educational environment. The surrounding area of seattle (capitol hill, international district, first hill) will always have a special place in my heart as well. All in all, great diverse student population, great professors, great city/location, great environment, and great academics/career-related resources.

My graduate experience at Seattle University was exceptional on every level. I had wonderfully caring and competent instructors and advisors who took an interest in my success. The courses I took were not only appropriately challenging academically, but they also were creative and thoughtfully designed. Perhaps most importantly, Seattle University is not just a Jesuit university in name; the school and faculty prioritize social justice and developing leaders who will create a more just world.
The courses I took were not only appropriately challenging academically, but they also were creative and thoughtfully designed. My master's degree is in Adult Education & Training, and I admittedly expect a lot out of educational experiences, and SU delivered. The best course I have taken in my life was a part of my education at SU.
