Learning with a Purpose

To Learn, Do

Dive into your career from day one.

Our students are in motion right from the start, whether it’s recording in front of a green screen, engineering robots, collecting algae in a local pond, examining evidence at a mock crime scene, tending to horses at the 32-stall barn, hustling across a bustling culinary lab or dining room, or consulting with executives of professional sports teams. Professors, who are current and former industry professionals, set the pace and are always at students’ sides. In fact, at JWU there’s an entire community behind you to help develop your skills and make the most of your potential.

“Get out there and chase the present.”

— Jacquelyn Lussier ’20, Media & Communication Studies
