Best Midwest Private Colleges: Why Choose Westminster?

As one of the country’s best Midwest private colleges, Westminster provides each and every one of our students with guidance, support, and an intellectually stimulating environment. Because we are a small liberal arts college with a grand global perspective, we’re able to give our students the individualized attention they deserve, while providing them with the valuable academic resources they need.

Dynamic Liberal Arts Education

Throughout every course offered at Westminster, our dedicated faculty strives to emphasize key concepts - such as critical thinking and clear writing - that will play an important role no matter what professional goals you may have.
Small, Interactive Classes

Because the average Westminster class is made up of only 16 dedicated students, our students receive personalized instruction that large universities simply aren’t able to provide – yet another reason why Westminster earns its rank as one of the best Missouri private colleges.
