Studies Laud Webster’s Online Programming and Social Mobility
The world is taking note of Webster University! Two recent studies ranked Webster as one of America’s best for online programming and for social mobility.
A recent study by AccreditedSchoolsOnline.org found that the university offers the best online programming for those who live in Missouri and who are pursuing a bachelor’s or a master’s degree online. Nationally, the school ranks sixth among the more than 1,400 programs evaluated, behind such academic powerhouses as the University of Wisconsin, Harvard University and University of Southern California.
The fact that the university’s offerings could be pursued on a full- or a part-time basis in the U.S. or abroad, along with academic standards that match the school’s on-campus offerings, were factors that set Webster apart.

In its third annual “Social Mobility Index,” CollegeNet named Webster University the best school in the St. Louis area and the sixth nationally for social mobility. That means Webster University offers accessible and affordable bachelor’s degrees for students from households that earn less than the average national income. In addition, the study concludes that the average Webster graduate triples his/her earning power within five years of completing a bachelor’s degree.
“Drowsy Chaperone” Performances Underway
