Academics: Preparing Students for Life Success
Washington State University provides a supportive learning community for its students focused on preparing them for career success and a future as global citizens motivated to contribute to the common good. The curriculum requires completion of University Common Requirements (UCORE) courses that build skills in seven key areas of development: critical and creative thinking, quantitative reasoning, scientific literacy, information literacy, communication, diversity, and integration of learning. WSU faculty have a well-deserved reputation for their commitment to the success of students, which is frequently demonstrated by being accessible outside of classroom hours.
The Academic Success and Career Center (ASCC) helps students create short- and long-term plans leading to educational and career success and graduates prepared to succeed in a complex, global, diverse world. Counselors engage students in critical thinking about coursework and career development. Students are encouraged to gain experiential learning through internships, community service, and study abroad.
