City University of Seattle has proudly partnered with universities in Mexico since 2005 to provide unique educational opportunities for students. One such opportunity is the Summer in Seattle integrated study abroad program, and July 14, CityU is welcoming 76 participants through the program.
Summer in Seattle is open to students enrolled in CityU’s management, business administration, applied psychology, English Language Program and doctoral programs through the following institutions:
- Centro de Enseñanza Técnica y Superior (CETYS) Universidad with campuses in Mexicali, Tijuana, and Ensenada
- Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León (UANL) in Monterrey
- Universidad Autónoma de San Luis Potosí (UASLP), in San Luis Potosí
- Universidad Popular Autónoma de Estado de Puebla (UPAEP) in Puebla
- Universidad Autónoma de Tamaulipas (UAT) in Tamaulipas
The program lasts for three and a half weeks and gives students the opportunity to take three face-to-face courses for their degree programs, as well as tour premier companies in the Pacific Northwest. In addition, students have the option to travel to Seattle this summer and to the university’s partner institution in Prague next summer, offering them a truly global education. This summer, more than 45 students from Mexico are in Prague.
During the program, students stay in the university’s residence hall in South Lake Union, and have the chance to participate in fun social events including attending a Seattle Sounders match and a Seattle Mariners game.
One of the participants of the program in summer 2016 had this to say:
“The city is impressive and I am really amazed by Seattle. It is a big city with lots of things to do and see. At first, three weeks seemed like too much, but as time went by, time became so short. To me, learning about the culture is one of the most important things I can do when visiting other places. The people of Seattle are educated and treated us well.” – Andrea González, UANL
