All About J-Term

The end of the fall semester is quickly approaching, and if you’re wondering what to do during your long winter break, here’s an idea: J-term. What is J-term, exactly? January Term goes from January 4th to the 22nd, during which time you can earn up to 4 credits toward your degree. You can take courses online or on-campus, or you can opt to study abroad.

Online Courses

Want to learn how to market yourself as a Liberal Arts major? Interested in the story of human evolution though DNA and fossils? How about dystopian and apocalyptic fiction? You could earn up to 4 credits from the comfort of your home with UNH’s online course offerings. This is a great way to get a Discovery requirement out of the way or get ahead on your major or minor. There are courses available from almost every college on campus, so you’re sure to find something of interest. Here’s a list of the online offerings for J-term 2016 and some cool featured courses.

On-Campus Courses

If you live near Durham or are staying around for winter break, you can consider a traditional classroom experience for a J-term course. There are plenty of course offerings right here on campus, including the fundamentals of real estate, rope ice climbing, general chemistry, and more! See all the course offerings here.

Study Abroad

The J-term study abroad programs are great for those who want an international experience but don’t have time in their schedules to do a whole semester abroad. There are some awesome UNH-managed study abroad programs during J-term. Want to learn archaeological mapping in Belize, travel writing in London, or cruise ship management while on an Atlantic cruise? Those are just a few of the opportunities for J-term study abroad! See them all here.
