Innovative programs for high-level thinkers
College is about gaining new perspectives.
- Do you want to be challenged beyond a traditional major?
- Do you value creative approaches to problem solving?
- Do you enjoy actively engaging with ideas with like-minded peers and professors?
At Jewell, we offer two honors programs that will take you on a deeper journey beyond the traditional classroom experience.
Honors Institute in Critical Thinking
If you like to be challenged, explore new ideas, take risks and make a difference in the life of communities, you will thrive in the Honors Institute. Alongside the major of your choice, Fellows take a course each semester that delves into critical thinking and problem-based learning beyond the traditional core curriculum. Your self-designed practicum centered around a world issue showcases your innovation, divergent thinking and risk taking—and it serves as a portfolio for employers and graduate schools.Honors Institute
Oxbridge Honors Program
If you have a high academic profile and are interested in a reading- and writing-intensive program with a full year of study in Oxford, England, explore our Oxbridge Honors Program. This Ivy-League status program with six majors is based on the British tutorial methods of instruction, with a tutor leading classes of one to four students. More demanding than a traditional college major, the rigor pays off, with alumni completing post-graduate studies at some of the world’s finest institutions and receiving prestigious honors and fellowships.Oxbridge Honors
