Oxbridge Honors Program at William Jewell College, Liberty, MO

This blog contains direct quotes from websites as of today’s date. Programs and policies do change, at colleges, from time to time, so please check with the colleges directly to receive any updates. These are not, necessarily, the biggest, best, or most popular programs at the college, but they are the ones that just “caught my eye” as unique, special, interesting, or just plain awesome. They are randomly listed in the blog section of this website. Enjoy!

From the William Jewell College website, 2023: “OXBRIDGE HONORS PROGRAM: More demanding than a traditional college major, all six Oxbridge majors provide rigorous training in sophisticated interpretation, analytical thinking, critical evaluation, and strong writing and oral presentation. The Ivy League-status program with a reading-writing intensive approach combines the best of British higher education—intense and deep study, with great independence—with the American—broad background and close mentorship.

“THE OXBRIDGE STUDENT: The Oxbridge Honors program is highly selective, enrolling a limited number of students each fall following an interview with faculty. Students typically have a mean ACT score of 30 (composite), 33 (reading) and 33 (science, for Oxbridge molecular biology majors), and rank in the top 10% of their high school class.

“A FULL YEAR AT OXFORD: You will spend your junior year studying in Oxford at the finest educational institutions in the world while taking part in university life and English and European culture. During your first two years at Jewell, you will study under the tutorial system. Created on the educational model found in Oxford and Cambridge Universities, the Oxbridge Honors Program features tutorial (rather than classroom) instruction. Classes in your Oxbridge major will be taken in one-on-one or small group settings, with a master teacher or tutor coordinating intensive reading and writing assignments.”
