The Ohio State University at Newark

Graduate Headed to Oxford University

Graduate Bryce Jones of Westerville is headed to the United Kingdom this fall to start his graduate work. The 26-year-old was accepted at Oxford University.

“I was surprised when I got the acceptance letter,” said Jones. “At first I was a little nervous, but then I realized that this is going to be truly an amazing experience.”

Jones complete his coursework at Ohio State Newark in December. He double majored in history and English. Jones will pursue a master’s degree in U.S. History at Oxford.

“My professors at Ohio State Newark have been wonderfully helpful and supportive,” said Jones. “They encouraged me to apply to Oxford, and I’m so glad they did.”

Jones will be at Oxford from October to June. He hopes to eventually pursue his doctorate to become a professor, but he doesn’t know where or when he wants to do that. However, if he could pick any place to be a professor, he knows where that would be.

“If I could teach here, I would,” said Jones. “I love it here. I came to Ohio State Newark because I loved the small campus environment. It was perfect for me.”

The Ohio State University at Newark offers an academic environment that’s challenging but supportive with world-renowned professors and access to Ohio State’s more than 200 majors. It’s where learning comes to life. Research, study abroad and service learning opportunities prepare students for their careers in ways they never expected.
