Academics

You know what you want to do. At JWU, build the skills, experience and knowledge to make your career happen.

Prove Yourself, Ahead of Schedule
Take classes in your major your first term, and gain the insight to evaluate your career early — and seize the opportunities to set yourself apart in your field before you graduate.

Meanwhile, work with our academic and career advisors to lay out an integrated academic and work experience plan. Then, put that plan into action at JWU:

1. Get Industry Expertise
Our faculty offer the best of both worlds, integrating theory with relevant practice — and by staying in touch with what’s happening, who’s leading and where your field is going.

2. Build Hands-on Experience
You won’t just read about your career: Dive right in. Build hands-on experience on real-world projects in the classroom, and use real industry tools and practices in our hands-on labs.

3. Apply Skills in the Field
Gain work experience through internships across the USA and class projects with companies in our 4 campus cities. Build global experience through our 11 structured work and study abroad programs and international internships.

4. Boost your Professional Skill Set
Build the skills to communicate and think critically, creatively and analytically in core Arts & Sciences courses tied to your career field.

5. Step Up, Stand Out as a Leader
Are you up to the challenge? Take on leadership and community service challenges to develop teamwork skills, compete professionally and impact your community.

Ready to be the best you can be in your career field? Prove you have what it takes at our Providence, North Miami, Denver and Charlotte campuses.
