January Term

The January Term gives you the opportunity to investigate new areas of study; refine your  independent learning skills; integrate your theoretical knowledge with practical experience; explore career options; and pursue your research interests.

During this month you may enroll in courses on campus, travel programs, independent studies or internships. You also have the option of enrolling in courses or programs at other 4-1-4 institutions.

First-year students are expected to take on-campus courses or participate in Salem faculty-sponsored travel programs during the January Term. Salem-sponsored programs are also open to students from other colleges.

Recent on- campus courses have included “Cuba Through the Eyes of Film and Literature;” “Unlocking the DaVinci Code;” “Aftermath of Disaster,” which included a trip to the Gulf Coast region affected by Hurricane Katrina; “Rastafarianism and Social Resistance in the Caribbean;” and “Science Fiction and Photography.”

Recent travel courses have included study in Ireland, Italy, Mexico, China and England.
