Study Abroad

Global. Life-changing. Experiential. Valuable. Deep. Applied. Essential. Phenomenal. Ground-breaking. Important.

That's J Term. That's Hartwick.

Hartwick's unique January Term (J Term) is one of the main reasons why we lead in study abroad programming.

J 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. Build a powerful resume. Impress employers and professional and graduate schools.

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 Europe, Asia, Africa, South and Central America.

Talk to faculty program leaders about J Term--their plans, their experiences, their intended outcomes. Ask current students what they've done; what they will never forget; what they recommend.
