Webster’s online learning strategy leverages and serves a worldwide network of campuses bringing students and faculty together in a genuine WorldClassRoom. This strategy extends Webster’s mission by serving domestic and international students who do not reside near a Webster campus. The result is a globally disbursed, culturally and professionally diverse classroom. Rich course design, small interactive classes and highly responsive instruction provide for a unique quality learning experience.
