10 Different Colleges To Choose From in Seattle

Updated on October 30, 2012

Seattle is a fabulous city that is intellectual, artistic and stimulating. It’s of very little surprise, then, that there are a lot of students who wish to attend college in Seattle. If that sounds like you then you may be wondering which Seattle school is the right school for you. What’s great about this city is that they have a school for everyone. If you want to go to a big traditional college campus for a four-year degree then you can do that. If you want to get a certificate to practice midwifery or massage then you can do that, too.

Here are ten of the best Seattle colleges for different types of students:

The General Schools

1. University of Washington, Seattle. This is the standard four-year state school that you might attend if you’re looking for a traditional campus-based college experience.

3. Seattle Community College. Students who want to get a two-year degree (either entirely or before moving on to a four-year completion program) will be happy with the high-quality of classes at Seattle Community College.

For the Business-Minded

4. Antioch College, Seattle. Students who are primarily interested in attending school in order to further their careers may find that Antioch College offers what they need.

5. Golden Gate University, Seattle. Do you want to get a highly specific degree in tax issues? There is no Seattle school better for you than Golden Gate University. They offer advanced education and degrees for people interested in accounting and taxes.

For Artsy Students

6. Art Institute of Seattle. If you want to attend art school in Seattle then you have a few different options. The Art Institute of Seattle is a two-year school that offers a number of artistic degrees that are specifically designed to lead you into a creative job. From fashion design to music management, this is an art program with business in mind.

7. Cornish College of the Arts. If you’re interested in spending four years exploring art then this Seattle College has what you need. They specialize in performance art degrees but also offer degrees to students interested in visual arts and design.
