Oxbridge student chronicles her year in England with 'Photo a Day.'

The Oxbridge Honors Program is the only program in the United States offering a full curriculum of tutorial-based instruction in conjunction with a year of study in England. This highly personalized approach to education combines the best of the British and American approaches to education.

Degree programs offered:

  • Bachelor of Arts:
    - Literature and Theory 
    - History
    - History of Ideas (interdisciplinary great books major)
    - Institutions and Policy (interdisciplinary philosophy, politics, and economics major)
    - Molecular Biology
    - Music


Students who are in the Oxbridge Program are prepared to enter a variety of fields. This reading- and writing-intensive program extends over all four years of college and culminates with senior comprehensive examinations. The small group of outstanding students study in individual or small-group tutorials and by independent reading and research. Students typically spend the third year in one of William Jewell’s programs in either Oxford or Cambridge, England. Other distinguishing characteristics of the major include:

  • The tutors to Oxbridge students are virtually all PhDs, each with years of teaching experience and at the peak of their professions;
  • Students get to drive their own studies and truly create a personalized major;
  • Students gain valuable skills, such as self-discipline, critical thinking, and independent study;
  • The overseas aspect of the major helps students to translate their skills into another culture and fine tune their interests before comprehensive exams.
