Westminster offers a truly unique environment for learning. Outside magazine’s rated Salt Lake City a ‘near-perfect location for avid outdoor adventurers.’ Deeply committed to each student’s success, Westminster College is a comprehensive college that integrates a strong foundation in liberal education with cutting-edge professional programs at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Westminster students take advantage of our unique approach to learning characterized by active, hands-on, collaborative, and cross-disciplinary experiences, coupled with close, mentoring relationships with faculty. All freshmen participate in learning communities; service-learning opportunities abound; and more than 85 percent of students participate in internships before they graduate. Throughout their education, students are challenged to experiment with ideas, raise questions, critically examine alternatives, and make informed decisions. We encourage students to accept responsibility for their own learning, to discover and pursue their passions, and to act with responsibility. Our purposes are to prepare students to lead lives of learning, accomplishment, and service, and to help them develop skills and attributes critical for success in a rapidly changing world.Westminster has more than 70 academic programs, including 38 undergraduate majors and 13 graduate degrees. Some unique and very popular programs include the aviation program, including our own flight center at Salt Lake International Airport; Honors; the McNair Scholars program, an elite national graduate school preparation program for low-income, first generation and underrepresented students; Winter at Westminster, a study abroad alternative that combines once-in-a-lifetime snow sports activities with 12-16 transferable credits; Westminster Scholars, a problem-based curriculum, and May Term, which is free to students who enrolled full-time the previous spring and fall.
