Westminster 101

This one-credit course provides an introduction to life at Westminster College and assists students in making a successful transition to higher education. Students learn how to take advantage of opportunities for personal and academic growth while on campus and to develop strategies for personal and academic success.


The Major

Course work devoted to one or more majors provides opportunity for students to acquire significant understanding of a discipline's concepts, theories and principal paradigms. The major(s) also provides a mechanism for understanding and interpreting a broad range of ideas and empirical phenomena.



Electives are courses available to students outside of the major which provide opportunities for intellectual exploration. Such courses may be taken at any time during the undergraduate years and count toward the total number of semester hours needed to graduate.
