Innovative, Comprehensive, Fresh, Resourceful, Respected, Local, Global. There’s no one way to view Webster University.
The school — founded on the principle of providing a higher education to those who might not possess the opportunity to obtain one — today operates as a private, nonprofit, accredited university offering undergraduate and graduate education.
The home campus is located in Webster Groves, Mo., a picturesque suburb of St. Louis. The university certainly has grown since it was established in 1915 and now includes more than 100 campus locations throughout the United States and across the globe. It’s created a unique educational environment at Webster, blending the conveniences of a small university with the opportunities of a large one.
Webster is dedicated to academic excellence, innovation in higher education, meeting students’ needs in an ever-changing world and incorporating an international perspective throughout the curriculum.
Students can choose from programs in the schools of business and technology, communications or education; or select majors in the colleges of fine arts or arts and sciences. They can study in the U.S., Austria, China, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Thailand. It’s all a part of the Webster experience.
Currently the university enrolls about 22,000 students around the globe who range from traditional college-age students to adult learners. They represent more than 100 nationalities.
The academic experience at Webster University is one that boasts the best of both worlds — the conveniences of a small university with the opportunities of a large one.
Classes are limited in size, faculty are experts in their fields and the breadth of majors is hard to match. Hard-to-find majors — such as audio production, musical theatre and international relations — are standards here and a strong draw for many of our students.
Faculty blend textbook theory in the classroom with the practical experience they’ve acquired as working professionals. They foster creativity and incorporate an international element into every major. A study abroad experience, for most students, comes free of charge!
The end result is a student with a desire to learn that knows no end and a commitment to better his or her community and the world.
