With 2,300 students from all over the US and the world majoring in more than 50 traditional and interdisciplinary areas of study, the University of Puget Sound produces graduates who go on to work for companies like Apple, Amazon, Boeing, Coca-Cola, Google, and many others. Students can join our prestigious Business and Leadership Program and study everything from Computer Science, dual-degree Engineering, and Environmental Policy to International Political Economy (a field that was started at Puget Sound), languages, and literature. Our graduates enjoy an 80%+ acceptance rate to medical and law schools. International students dive into campus life when they get here, and many take advantage of our international student services like the international student mentoring program and internationally focused flats in Thomas Hall.
Located near the urban heart of Tacoma in the North End neighborhood, the Puget Sound campus is within walking distance to some of the best shops, eateries, and coffeehouses in the city. Tacoma is in one of the most diverse areas of the Pacific Northwest, and campus is only a bus ride away from several live music venues, movie theaters, and museums. Add to all of that the magnetic pull of Mount Rainier, beaches found in nearby parks, and rainforests on the Olympic Peninsula, and it won’t take long to create a full four-year agenda not just of outings but of research experiences, studying anything from the geochemistry and origin of regional hot springs to the industry of Tacoma.
