January Term or JanTerm is an expression of the college’s commitment to life-long learning. It incorporates intensive month-long courses that emphasize experiential learning and experimental formats and topics.

During January, students take only one course. This academic term provides a change of educational pace, more concentrated involvement in one area of study, and a greater emphasis on exploration and experiential learning. Courses during the January term focus on unique topics in depth. Off-campus courses include independent study and career exploration; they also include courses with cross-cultural exploration and language immersion experiences.

All undergraduates must complete one January term course for each fall term they are enrolled, with three being the maximum required. Each year, the majority of the student body, including nearly all first-year students, remains on campus to pursue a January term course or project.
