Webster University's Study Abroad Programs Honored
September 30, 2011
Webster University's Study Abroad programs rank in the top 2 percent of the 1,600 colleges and universities surveyed in the just-released "America's Best Colleges" 2012 edition of U.S. News & World Report.
Webster is one of just 27 U.S. institutions to share this distinction, which recognizes study abroad programs that involve substantial academic work for credit and considerable interaction between the student and the culture.
"The U.S. News & World Report rankings are a confirmation of everything that makes Webster University a first-choice institution for students seeking global academic excellence," said Webster University President Elizabeth Stroble. "The report highlights our longtime and growing commitment to global study and global citizenship, which is recognized throughout the U.S. and around the world."
Earlier this year, U.S. News & World Report included Webster's nursing and nurse anesthesia programs in its annual ranking of the nation's best graduate schools and programs.
Webster University is the only Tier 1, private, non-profit U.S.-based university providing a network of international residential campuses.
