Our academic approach

Three distinctive educational approaches serve as a defining focus for the student-centered academic programs at UW Bothell: connected learning, community engagement and cross-disciplinarity.

Connected Learning

UW Bothell is known for engaging students through “connected learning” — that is, classes, team projects and research in which you connect the dots between what you learn or create in school and what is happening in the broader world.

Community Engagement

One of the ways you make connections as a student is by engaging with businesses, nonprofits and other agencies and organizations in the Puget Sound region and around the world. With assistance from faculty and staff, students at UW Bothell work with hundreds of community partners to investigate research questions, pursue capstone projects and participate in internships.

Cross-disciplinary

Students at UW Bothell are involved in many programs and projects that cross disciplines — ideas, research and creative activities that bridge traditional academic boundaries, such as business and health studies or biology and fine arts. Not only are these experiences more powerful for you, but this kind of academic work also presents pressing issues and problem- solving tools in a way that prepares you to meet the complex challenges you will face after graduation.


“Experiential education — where projects compel the students to engage with their education, choose a degree and go forth in the world and do good — that’s what excites me about UW Bothell. Such opportunities are rare in my experience elsewhere but common here.”

Pierre D. Mourad, Professor
