J-Term and Study Abroad

Convert that book knowledge to 3-D. Immerse yourself for a year, semester, or just a few weeks through J-Term and Study Abroad at Carthage.

J-Term is a special month-long period of study in which students take a single course on campus or around the world. Explore a subject outside your major, try something new like art or acting, or travel. Professors lead study tours to such destinations as Hong Kong, India, Southern Africa, Sweden, and Honduras.

January doesn’t get all the mileage. Study abroad experiences can last for a semester or even a whole year. The opportunity is available to all majors, and students majoring in a foreign language are required to spend a semester abroad. Recent study abroad destinations include Costa Rica, Ecuador, Egypt, Greece, India, Ireland, and Japan.
