Engage Our Community as Global Leaders
At Webster University, we’re united in our belief in free and rigorous intellectual inquiry that comes alive in our classrooms, both in-person and virtual, thanks to our distinguished faculty members and diverse student body. The College of Humanities and Social Sciences provides an educational environment that is broad-minded, radically inclusive, utterly respectful, and grounded in critical and humane thought. Our students learn not what to think — but how to think.Get Started Today
