The cornerstone of Webster University’s liberal arts curriculum is the Global Citizenship Program, which prepares students to meet the personal and professional challenges of tomorrow over four years of undergraduate study.
As a liberal arts institution, Webster focuses on providing students with a general education that balances fundamental learning with applicable skills. You, like so many Webster students, may have been educated in an international setting and may already speak two or more languages. The Global Citizenship Program will allow you to apply your personal experience in an academic setting, where you will learn to think critically, to communicate convincingly, and to solve complex problems. Our signature university program will allow you to emerge from Webster University with the core competencies required for responsible global citizenship in the 21st century.
Breadth of knowledge and specific skills will be attained by covering interdisciplinary requirements including:
- Arts Appreciation
- Global Understanding
- Physical and Natural World
- Quantitative Literacy
- Roots and Cultures
- Social Systems and Human Behavior
The Global Citizenship Program will naturally prepare you to succeed in the courses of your major. While we offer several in-depth courses that are required to obtain a specific degree, you will also be given a great deal of academic freedom to take classes in other fields of interest to you.
At Webster University you will receive the individual attention and support you need to thrive. With fewer than 20 students on average per class, you can easily ask questions and receive personal attention from our faculty members who are fully committed to helping you in your new academic adventure.
