For many students, with academic requirements, sports, extra curriculars, internships, jobs and more, J Term can be the perfect time to go abroad. It allows you to have an authentic study abroad experience and immerse yourself in a new culture, all while earning credit and fitting it in between semesters. J Term programs are a fantastic way to fit study abroad into a busy schedule, or even to study abroad again! With 12 programs to choose from, from sunny Costa Rica to the snowy Alps of Grenoble and everything in between, there’s a program for everyone. Find yours here.
