School Overview

Founded in 1875 as the Salt Lake Collegiate Institute, a preparatory school, Westminster first offered college classes in 1897 as Sheldon Jackson College. In 1902, college trustees adopted the new name, Westminster. Moving to its present location in 1911, Westminster became the first accredited two-year junior college in the intermountain area. In 1935 Westminster modified its curriculum to qualify as a four-year junior college and in 1949 became a four-year liberal arts institution offering baccalaureate degrees in the arts and sciences. Today Westminster exists as a fully independent, privately funded, nondenominational, comprehensive liberal arts institution of higher learning with selected graduate programs, meeting the West's educational needs.

Westminster College offers bachelor's and master's degrees from the following schools:

  • School of Arts and Sciences
  • Bill and Vieve Gore School of Business
  • School of Education
  • School of Nursing and Health Sciences

At Westminster College, we offer a variety of online certificate and degree programs that are designed with the specific needs of working professionals in mind.
