January and May Terms

Jan Term and May Term off-campus courses allow students to travel and study for a month under the direction of a Whitworth professor. January is a period that affords a broad variety of short study programs. Aside from courses offered on a regular basis (usually alternating every other year), there are often several "one-of-a-kind" experiences for student selection. Tuition for Jan Term is included in a long semester. May Term tuition is additional to the program cost.
