Department admission information

This major is capacity-constrained. Completion of prerequisites does not guarantee admission. Transfer students must complete one quarter at the Seattle campus of the UW to be eligible to apply.

Admission to the major is based on UW cumulative GPA, grades in prerequisite courses and other social sciences electives, a written statement of goals, language background and any international experience. Applications are due on the third Friday of each quarter. See the department website for more information.
