Kansas City: Faculty

Webster University faculty brings both academic and professional qualifications to the classroom. Faculty members are academically qualified to teach at the undergraduate/graduate levels, and they work in the profession in which they teach. This enables them to blend academic theories with workplace experiences. Small classes and individualized attention permit the extra measure that marks a quality educational experience. The challenging, rigorous curriculum is standard for Webster University. Students are assigned projects involving real-world situations. The classroom provides the theory, and the world of work provides actual case studies.
