What Will You Discover?
At Western you will be encouraged to explore your academic interests, challenged to think critically, and will gain the knowledge and skills you’ll need to make your mark on campus and in the world.
The Western Difference
Western is an academically rigorous institution that is neither too large, nor too small. A 15,000-student campus with classes that average 29 students and 160+ majors to choose from, Western provides the benefits of a small liberal arts college with the academic opportunities and campus resources you would expect from one of the largest universities in Washington. You will receive a well-rounded and transformative education that thrives on curiosity and determination, and fosters close working relationships with faculty and other students.
Challenge Your Inner Scholar
Western's selective Honors Program brings high-achieving students and outstanding faculty together in a small and highly-interactive learning community. Honors isn't more work – it's different work. Honors classes provide the opportunity to explore thought-provoking topics through small, roundtable discussions and writing assignments. If you thrive on challenge and want to get the most of out of your college experience, the Honors Program may be a perfect fit for you.
