In a 21st-century career, students will be required to advance the frontiers of knowledge through original thought and innovative creative work. Southwestern University (SU) has designed an experience that prepares graduates for these new realities. Combining a breakthrough curriculum with real-world opportunities, SU equips students with the skills required to create new ideas, adapt, collaborate, and solve problems from multiple perspectives. These skills represent a broader, more relevant education for tomorrow. Located in scenic Georgetown just 25 miles north of Austin, Southwestern was the first institution of higher education in Texas and is one of the state’s top liberal arts and sciences colleges. The curriculum incorporates the humanities, fine arts, social sciences, and natural sciences, with 26 academic departments offering 35 majors and 42 minors, including a new design thinking minor. In addition, SU offers seven pre-professional pathways, including pre-engineering, pre-law, and pre-medicine, with acceptance rates into graduate programs significantly higher than the national average. Complementing the model of inquiry-based learning, SU students participate in transformative experiences such as study abroad, community-engaged learning, internships, and undergraduate research. The majority of SU students live on campus and participate in more than 100 student organizations. SU’s civic-minded students volunteered more than 22,000 service hours in the community last year. Athletically, the Pirates compete in 20 different varsity sports at the NCAA Division III level.
