Webster University’s Study Abroad program has received another prestigious recognition. Webster’s long-term study abroad programs rank 13th among all U.S. master’s degree-granting institutions, and first in the same category among Missouri institutions as well as among all Midwestern institutions, according to the Institute of International Education’s recently released annual “Open Doors Report.”

Over the past several years the excellence of Webster’s Study Abroad program has also been ranked highly by U.S. News & World Report. And in 2012, in a special section entitled “College, Reinvented,” the Chronicle of Higher Education singled out Webster as a model of international higher education, one that uses its global presence to recreate real intellectual circulation.

According to the Chronicle story, “much of Webster’s international mobility is simply baked into its structure. The common curriculum and the assortment of foreign campuses makes it easier for U.S.-based students to study abroad without worrying if they’ll get off track and graduate late. About 20 percent of the undergraduates go overseas.”
