Webster University Geneva is part of an international network that includes campuses in London, Leiden, Cha-am, Vienna, and Shanghai as well as the home campus in St. Louis, Missouri. Webster's international faculty boasts both academic standing and professional expertise representing 15 different nations. The instructional style is American, the language of instruction is English, but classroom participation is cross-cultural.
At the crossroads of important communication roads linking the Mediterranean Sea to the North of Europe, Geneva has become a town of exchanges, ideas and trade. The international city, with 40% of its population from other lands remains open to people of different origins and cultures. Today, Geneva's humanitarian role and action are more than ever necessary and it is widely recognized as the city of Peace and of major international negotiations. Geneva plays host to some 190 international organizations—the UN European headquarters, the World Health Organization (WHO), and the World Trade Organization (WTO). Cosmopolitan, open to the world and to innovations, Geneva is a favorable location for negotiation and reflection where all the statesmen of the world can meet.
A complete list of courses offered is available on-line.
The course equivalencies spreadsheets have been compiled from past approved Academic Plan forms. They show when the course was last approved and how it transferred back to La Crosse. You may notice that some classes satisfied several UWL options.
This list is not comprehensive nor does it take the place of meeting with your advisor for final approval! They are meant to be a guide of what courses may be appropriate for your studies abroad.
