This secondary major complements any program we offer.
Applied Critical Thought & Inquiry
One major for knowledge. A second major for doing.
A major from the Core Curriculum
At William Jewell, you can earn a second major in Applied Critical Thought and Inquiry by completing the Core + 3. You take the core of courses required of every Jewell student. Then, you add three active learning experiences — one from each of three areas: Reflective Citizenship, Disciplinary Scholarship, and Active Engagement — such as an internship, study abroad, or a research project.
More Than The Core
To earn the Applied Critical Thought and Inquiry second major, students complete three hands-on experiences, applying classroom learning to real-world challenges. Jewell guarantees each student the opportunity for an internship as well as study abroad. With a faculty actively engaged in scholarship, and a location just half an hour from Kansas City, Jewell also presents many opportunities for research and independent study in business, medicine, government, public service, volunteerism, science, and industry. Of course, the campus is a seedbed of ideas and a laboratory for putting ideas to work.
