Trinity January Term (J-Term) Study Away programs allow students to study abroad in short, intense bursts. Programs are offered over winter break and provide students with discipline-specific global experiences that are led by trusted Trinity faculty. Students have the opportunity to live, study, volunteer, and even research abroad side-by-side their peers and professors. Trinity J-Term programs are integrated with the College’s curriculum, combining the experiential with the academic. J-Term programs strive to be culturally conscious and locally integrated, valuing minimum impact travel, and interaction with local culture. J-Term programs offer one .5 credit course per program and are 2 weeks in length.
Below are the Trinity J-term programs being offered in 2024.
