Student Faculty Design Major

Have an idea for a course of study not currently represented in one of our degree/emphasis pairings? College of the Environment is one of two colleges at Western Washington University to offer a student faculty design major. Students must still complete the preparatory courses for either the bachelor of science or arts degree.

Please contact Kathryn Patrick, the College of the Environment admissions advisor, at (360)650-2817 to make an appointment to discuss the student faculty design BA or BS.
