Foreign Language students at Webster University are encouraged to pursue the Undergraduate International Studies Certificate which requires foreign language proficiency at the intermediate level and a Study Abroad experience.
"Foreign Languages Across the Curriculum" Program
The goal of the program is to provide opportunities for students to apply their second language skills (in French, German, Spanish, etc.) to content learning in pre-selected disciplines across the curriculum. For more information call or e-mail the Department of Foreign Languages.
M.A.T. - A Master of Arts in Teaching is offered in Communications with emphasis in Foreign Languages (French or Spanish). Twelve credit hours in Communications are required plus twelve hours of appropriate coursework in the language of emphasis. Classes cover different periods and genres of French, Spanish, and Latin American literatures, but the focus of the program is on oral communication and a deep understanding and appreciation of the foreign language and culture.
Intensive Weekends - Intensive advanced conversational overnight weekends are offered once or twice each semester in French, German and Spanish. The main focus is to practice and improve oral skills. Only the target language is allowed.
There are two exchanges between Webster University and institutions abroad:
