The opportunity of a lifetime. Available every January.
Go deep into your major or dive into another passion altogether. Hartwick students have the option to engage in an immersive, three-week-long learning experience called January Term (J Term).
This unique moment in your Hartwick education can include travel to far-off locations or concentrated research on campus — all of it centered on a singular point of study.
Experienced Hartwick faculty lead each J Term course, which also counts as credit toward your degree. We think it’s important that you have the space to further your specialized skills and knowledge with real-world learning.
Ask any of the more than 200 students who take advantage of this international opportunity each winter, and they’ll tell you this phenomenal experience changed their lives.
