A Different Sort of Learning at Antioch

The Seattle campus, located in the heart of Belltown in a modern, sustainable building, offers two types of undergraduate degree programs: the flexible Bachelor of Liberal Studies degree with eight concentration options (or you can create your own individualized course of study) and the BA in Health Counseling and Psychology.

For more than 45 years, Antioch University Seattle has helped adult students like you complete a bachelor’s degree while staying true to our social justice mission. Whether you want to advance your education, your career, or both, Antioch invites you to join an active and engaged community of learners.

Education for Social Change

An Antioch education inspires our students to transform themselves, connect with others, and harness their talents to win victories for humanity. During their studies and throughout their careers, Antioch students actively reflect on their values, biases, and behaviors. In classroom communities and beyond they seek diverse perspectives and confront dynamics of power, privilege, and oppression. They engage with the complex, interconnected systems comprising our world, challenging the status quo and advancing social, environmental, and economic justice.

Classes for Adults

Every student at Antioch is here with one common goal: to better themselves through education. Antioch’s powerful combination of individualized advising and flexible learning is tailored to your strengths and goals. By studying alongside peers on a similar life path, you have the benefit of collaborating with other students who take learning seriously. At Antioch, you’ll join a supportive network of like-minded individuals.

Our undergraduate programs were created with adult learners in mind. We value the experience you bring to the classroom. Instead of taking exams, you’ll write papers and create hands-on projects. You’ll receive a narrative evaluation for every class, with the option of a letter grade if you need it.

Transfer Credit & Prior Learning

Our admissions process focuses holistically on your life experience, taking into consideration the possibility you may be returning to formal education after many years. Antioch gives your transcripts a careful review to help you maximize transfer credits and save on time and tuition costs. 

We want to help you re-enter college and finish your degree as quickly, easily, and successfully as possible. We believe that hands-on, experiential learning is vital to personal and professional growth. You can convert your lived, earned knowledge into academic credit through Antioch’s renowned Prior Learning program. In some cases, your technical training, military experience, or work experience can be applied to your education. In classes and internships, you’ll learn skills that are directly translatable to your field.
