Programs in the Arts & Sciences embrace a belief in free and rigorous intellectual inquiry, and that inquiry comes alive inside our classrooms. Our students learn not what to think, but how to think. You won’t only learn the subject matter pertaining to your major or minor—you’ll learn how to apply it in real-world scenarios, through hands-on education and integrated programs.

We emphasize reality-based education inside the classroom and it begins at the creation of curriculum. Together, our three departments — Business, Management, and Mathematics and Computer Science — house 14 undergraduate programs designed to reflect the real world. For each program, the Walker School works with industry leaders to build curricula around the skills and knowledge they look for in future graduates.

Successful careers, a lifelong love of the arts and a lasting dedication to their craft.

Reporters and photographers, advertising copywriters and designers, audio engineers and video producers — they all call the School of Communications home.

Acquiring knowledge is more than memorization; it’s applying what you learn critically to the world around you. Webster prepares educators to address high-need areas and a wide range of students while taking advantage of partnerships with area school districts to develop skills inside classrooms. Like the faculty who teach them, Webster graduates are award-winning educators at the local, state, national and international levels.
