Smaller class sizes ensure your success.

WKU Pathways was built to ensure unique programming and support mechanisms so that students obtain the necessary academic skills for future success. A huge part of this is the low student-to-faculty ratio which facilitates substantial student-faculty interaction. 

Should you become admitted to the program, you will be in class with other international students and taught by WKU faculty experienced in teaching international students.
