J Term 2011 Spring Registration Deadline Nears

April 23, 2010

Hartwick's January Term is about liberal arts and experiential learning, research and collaborations, professional and academic presentations, deep and advanced study, internships, practicums, and performances.

J Term presents opportunities that most people never get: to spend concentrated time living and learning like you never have before. Have a different experience in each of your four years. Reconsider what you think; increase who you know. Shift your ideas about who you are; who you want to be.

You have options; lots of them. Intense on-campus courses in or outside your major. Domestic travel on and off the mainland. International travel to Eastern and Western Europe, Asia, the African continent, South and Central America.

Hartwick has been offering domestic and international academic programs during J Term for 30 years. Every one is a faculty-led course, internship, or directed study.

Explore the global options at your fingertips for J Term 2011.

Students interested in participating in an off-campus J Term program should submit applications as early as possible. Submission of an application, which requires the program director's signature, does not indicate acceptance. After you have submitted your application, it will be reviewed by the program director and you will be notified of a decision by the Center for Interdependence.

Once a course reaches its maximum participant capacity, applicants will be placed on a waitlist and contacted only if space becomes available in the program. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors are encouraged to apply in time for the spring deadline to assure a place. First-year students and transfer students only are on campus for the fall deadline and must apply then. The spring deadline is April 30, 2010.
