J-Term provides an additional opportunity for students to earn credits

J-Term will once again provide students the ability to get a head start on the rest of the academic year through a mini, four-week term in January.

Interested students may enroll in a maximum of 5 credit hours at $200 per credit hour as part of the 2022 J-Term.

Not only does J-Term offer students an opportunity to get ahead or catch up in their course work, but there is a wide range of interesting courses and special topics for students to choose from.

Special topics in Film and Media Studies include Short Film Production, where students will create their own short film using the techniques they have learned throughout the course.

Students who have completed BIO-201 can take Research in Comparative Genomics. This course engages students in authentic inquiry-driven novel genomics research while developing skills in data analysis, problem-solving and scientific communication.

Building a 21st Century Career: Identity and an Examined Professional Life investigates how careers have transformed and continue to change in a world informed by diversity, globalization, climate change, sustainability, social media, technology, and automation. This course is open to students of all disciplinary backgrounds and explores what it means to build and maintain a career today.

These are just a few of the courses being offered. The full J-Term course catalog can be found by logging into OASIS.
