Create for Yourself, for Others; Create Because You Don’t Know How to Do Anything Else
Within Webster University’s Leigh Gerdine College of Fine Arts, there are more than 50 undergraduate and graduate programs offered within four nationally selective and prestigious departments. Students have the opportunity to participate in professional training programs for acting, musical theatre and directing, in addition to performing and dancing in University-organized student ensembles and concerts.
Plus, in keeping with our mission of providing a high-quality learning environment, our classroom sizes, both online and in person, are small so our students have a personalized approach to education.
