Global MA Admissions

Global MA Admission Qualifications

Students who have earned a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college or university are encouraged to apply for admission to Webster University's Global MA programs. Students from outside the U.S., who have earned the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor's degree, are welcome to apply. We welcome applicants with any academic major to apply to this program.

The Global MA programs are designed to progress in five 8-week terms what is normally done in at least six terms. Because of the academic demand the Global MA programs place on students, we prefer that Global MA applicants have an overall minimum cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.0 out of a 4.0 scale from their undergraduate degree-granting institution. We are willing to consider applicants with a GPA below 3.0 if they have a strong record of academic achievement in their junior and senior years. Applicants who do not meet either criterion, especially those several years removed from their undergraduate experience, may still be considered for admission on a case-by-case basis. A phone interview also may be required.

Note: If you have an interest in both Global MA programs, we ask that you apply to the program in which you have greater interest.  Application and admission documentation for one Global MA program can be applied towards the other Global MA program should applicants later decide the other program suits their career goals better. Please note that the admission components that are not identical between the two programs, would still need to be submitted (i.e. the essay and any pre-requisites).
