For hands-on experience that makes learning exciting and relevant. Students come to Central Washington University for small classes taught by professors. There are no 800-student lectures here. Our average class size is just 25.

You’ll get a chance to do what you’re learning. CWU is as committed to learning that takes place outside the classroom as what happens inside. Our students get real-world experience in the fields they study – music, engineering, aviation, geology, chemistry, physics, theater, and more. CWU students conduct, present, and publish research with faculty partners. Whatever you’re interested in, chances are you’ll put it to work in ways usually only open to graduate students at other universities.

The result is a real-world understanding of how to use what you know. Employers tell us CWU students have a practical edge over graduates who only know what’s in books. Our hands-on approach to education makes learning exciting and relevant. You’re going to love it here.
