WCore is Westminster’s liberal education program. Westminster students have exciting choices for their Gen Ed, including “Counting Votes,” a look at U.S. voting methodology that puts mathematics to use in new ways; or “Bust that Psych Myth,” which exposes such legends as the power of hypnosis.

WCore allows students to explore new subjects and ideas through unique courses. WCore courses offer small-group settings, all of which focus on synthesis, communication, and disciplinary research. Because WCore has fewer requirements than standard gen-ed structures, students have more room in their schedules to pursue minors and electives.
