J-Term is a special month-long period of study at Carthage 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, Singapore, India, Southern Africa, Sweden, and Honduras.
January doesn’t get all the mileage. Some month-long study tours are offered in June and August. Study abroad experiences can also 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.
