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.
