Make the most of your winter break.
Whether you want to experience another culture, explore a new subject, engage in a service project, or catch up on credits to help you graduate on time, URI’s new Winter J Term has got you covered. The courses offered through J Term provide you with a full spectrum of academic opportunities, and at a lower cost than regular semester-long courses.
I loved the opportunity to earn credits in such a short period of time. It really lightened my schedule for spring semester.
The Winter J Term is URI’s academic mini-semester that runs each January over the winter break. With a diverse list of course offerings and travel opportunities, J Term gives you a concentrated period between the fall and spring semesters to focus, explore, and accelerate your path to graduation.
You might want to examine sustainable technologies in Indonesia, study the history of jazz in New Orleans, teach literacy the Dominican Republic, take a career development seminar, or just get those last few credits you need to graduate. There are plenty of options, those are just a few.
