International Opportunities

School of Communications students can have global learning experiences in the classroom, online, or at one of our international campuses. The opportunities are almost endless.

Our student population is diverse.  Our faculty spend time teaching at international campuses, and faculty from our international campuses, in turn, spend time teaching at the St. Louis campus. Exposure to multiple perspectives and cultures helps students better understand the global media market and the interconnected world in which we live.

Webster University offers a range of support programs and a choice of campuses that offer students the opportunity to choose media communications courses to enhance their global learning experiences. From learning about different cultures to experiencing new cultures firsthand with a semester abroad at one of our international campuses, we prepare students to excel as skilled professionals in a global field of communications.
