Webster University Geneva

Geneva campus

Established in Switzerland in 1978, Webster University Geneva is an accredited American university campus that offers high-quality programs in English at the undergraduate (bachelor level) and graduate (masters) level.  Webster provides a broad Liberal Arts approach to teaching in the culturally-rich context of Switzerland, and the University has become an important member of the community and spirit that comprise "Genève Internationale".

At Webster University Geneva, we support each student in their aspiration to excel.  This includes various academic resources, from a Scholars' Program designed to inspire, mentor motivate the school's highest academic performers to programs and services that enhance academic achievement of students at every level.  Excellence is also encouraged in character development through participation in co-curricular activities, including an optional Webster LEADS program, which earns a Leadership Certificate upon successful completion.

Webster is a welcoming, inclusive global learning community.  At Webster University Geneva, across about 400 students per year we have students representing up to 90 distinct nationalities and a faculty whose citizenship (and/or origins) span about 25 countries.

Webster's core curriculum, called the Global Citizenship Program, is required of all bachelor students, and is designed to support the development of global citizenship.  Students studying at Webster in Switzerland benefit from a worldwide network of Webster campuses that allows for exciting study abroad opportunities, while offering a unified academic experience, firmly grounded in Webster’s educational philosophy.

Webster University Geneva is a learning environment that welcomes individuals from diverse cultures, ages and socioeconomic backgrounds.  As a diverse, gender-inclusive campus, we support critical conversations about how a spirit of inclusion is embedded in the concept of global citizenship.  We aim to instill in students a respect for diversity and an understanding of their own and others' values, where:

Diversity embraces all human differences while building on the commonalities. It serves to eliminate discrimination and exclusion based on race, color, creed, national origin, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, socioeconomic status, disability, religion or military status; 

Inclusion affords faculty, staff, students and community partners the opportunity to participate, regardless of differences. It is being included in activities and the chance to participate using one's abilities in day-to-day activities as a member of the community.
