The January Term is a great opportunity for students to earn up to three credits in two weeks. J-term courses are designed to help students catch up or get ahead and graduate early. The courses are offered on-campus, online and abroad to give maximum flexibility and convenience.
On-campus courses at Lake Shore Campus meet daily for about 4 hours a day. Online courses will have daily synchronous sessions of certain duration depending on the class. Students are expected to spend between 6 to 10 hours a day studying, undergoing a field experience, or doing projects. A J-term class is a
full-time, immersive study experience that provides the benefit for students to focus solely on one course. Students are urged to discuss with their academic or faculty advisor to determine if a J-term course is right for them.
For the year 2013, the term begins on January 2 and ends on the 12th. Classes will be held on Saturday January 5 and 12. The list of classes offered in J-term 2013 is shown below.
