Watchmaking & Jewelry

In 1942 Paris Junior College created the Horology and Jewelry Departments to provide job training. By 1946 the department's chief function was training World War II veterans under the GI Bill. Today the success of PJC's Texas Institute of Jewelry Technology is the dedication and knowledge of leaders, instructors and industry advisors.

Watchmaking and repair, jewelry technology, casting, gemology, computer-aided jewelry design (CAD/CAM), stone setting, fabrication and jewelry repair are taught in an intensive program. Students learn technical, manipulative and professional skills required to enter today's prestigious and lucrative watchmaking, jewelry and gemology fields.

Set in beautiful Northeast Texas about two hours from Dallas, Paris Junior College offers a quiet campus and affordable tuition. The attractive community of Paris offers a low cost of living.
