Westminster College Academics

“My favorite class has been environmental biology. I probably know more about Utah than most the people that live here… from a biological stance… well, because the teacher is so good.”

Chris Ferrugari, Winter at Westminster ‘06

All Winter at Westminster students are required to enroll full-time (12-16 credits), choosing from more than 525 classes. Make no mistake, education is Winter at Westminster's top priority.

Transferable Credits

You will be assigned a START Center academic advisor to ensure the necessary classes are available and credits will transfer to your home institution.

Class Schedule

In addition, the START Center advisor can assist you in arranging your class schedule and help you customize your semester-away experience, while allowing for mid-week skiing/boarding.

SnowflakeU.S.News & World Report has consistently ranked Westminster College as one of the West's top-tier colleges. The Princeton Review lists Westminster as one of the "Best 376 Colleges," and Newsweek lists Westminster as one of "America's Hottest Colleges."

“My favorite class has been photography with Anthony Sicliano. I've always had an interest in photography but have not been able to take a class at my home school until I was upper class. Here at Westminster I've been able to take the class much sooner. It has opened up an entire new hobby for me. My understanding is 100% better than before. Now I don't know what I'm going to do when I don't have a darkroom so easily accessible.”
