Westminster College


Westminster College is a private, comprehensive liberal arts college dedicated to students and their learning.  In fact, Westminster is the only liberal arts college in Utah.  If you aren’t sure what a liberal arts college is, you can read a great definition here.  A liberal arts degree focuses on broad skills in thinking and writing, and provides a great foundation for students who plan to attend graduate school.  Westminster’s price tag is the highest in the state of Utah, at $29,000 for 1 year, but the average Freshmen Aid package is $23,700, which makes a private college education a more affordable option.  Westminster College is located in Salt Lake City and classes have a student to faculty ration of 11:1!  If you are unfamiliar with Westminster College, take a virtual tour on their website and then make a campus visit and see if Westminster is a good fit for you.
