IN A TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY career, students are required to advance the frontiers of knowledge through original thought and creative work. Southwestern University (SU) has designed an experience that prepares graduates for these new realities. Combining a flexible curriculum with real-world opportunities, SU equips students with the ability to adapt, create, collaborate, and view challenges 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 36 majors and 43 minors, including a new early modern studies 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 one hundred student organizations. SU’s civic-minded students volunteered more than 9,500 service hours in the community last year. The Pirates compete in twenty different varsity sports at the NCAA Division III level.
