January Term at Luther alters the pace of the academic year. It's a time to focus, explore, and try new things. On campus, it's not as busy as fall and spring, which allows time to think, reflect, and make connections. Off campus (and we offer many opportunities), it's a chance to gain experience, test new skills, or go somewhere you'd never dreamed of and really get to know the place and people.
Most Luther students participate in J-term all four years.
Why? It's fun, innovative, and offers a variety of opportunities to fit student needs and interests.
