Located in the heart of the city, Antioch University Seattle is one part of a six-campus, not-for-profit network known for exclusively serving adult learners, most of whom pursue graduate studies. Antioch's socially progressive mission, which emphasizes community activism and experimental learning practices, attracts professionals from around the country. Independent and interdisciplinary study are vital to the curriculum.

On each Antioch University campus, students enjoy small classes, dedicated faculty and flexible degree programs. The Seattle campus is just over 30 years old and maintains a congenial atmosphere with about 900 students. Another unique detail: students receive narrative assessments instead of letter or numeric grades. Antioch University was one of the first universities in the country to implement this practice, which helps give students a more personal understanding of their strengths as well as areas that need improvement.

Classes take place in the late afternoon and evening to suit the schedules of working adults. Students can take advantage of several concentrations including arts and literature, global studies, human services, leadership and organizational studies, psychology, social justice studies, and spiritual studies. Most students complete their liberal arts degree in one or two years.
