Academics

Washburn University is large enough to offer a quality education in approximately 200 areas of study. We’re also small enough that faculty will know your name and help you reach your goals.

Our faculty is focused first on teaching. While all faculty members are expected to stay current in their fields and encouraged to pursue research interests, you as a student are the top priority. Classes are small, averaging about 15 students per faculty member, so you’ll get one-on-one attention.

All that attention leads to great things for students like you. Graduates of our programs in education and allied health as well as those of the School of Nursing have above average pass-rates on required licensure exams. Our School of Business graduates consistently outscore peers nationally on major field tests. And our graduate school placement rates in the health professions are above 85 percent.

When you graduate from Washburn University you will be competent in your area of study and be proficient in the five areas defined by our principal student learning outcomes:

  • Communication
  • Critical and creative thinking
  • Quantitative and scientific reasoning
  • Information literacy and technology
  • Globalism, ethics and diversity
