Summer Learning Communities

Summer Learning Communities

Webster Geneva is expanding its offer of Clusters and Courses this summer.  These clusters of three courses each are open to all undergraduate students in the Webster University network.  Five clusters and one stand-alone course will be offered over a six week period (instead of the regular eight week term). 

There are many benefits to enrolling in a summer Cluster:

  • Exposure to topics that future employers will care about
  • Field trips to local organizations and sites
  • In just six weeks you can earn 9 credit hours
  • You can fast-track some of your academic and/or GCP requirements   
  • Webster Geneva students will be awarded a CHF 2,000 scholarship towards fall tuition, once the courses are successfully completed
  • For Study Abroad students, housing will be reduced by 80%
