January Term

In 2022, Goucher will be offering a January Term (J-Term), a special period of study in which students can take an entire class in a condensed format over a few weeks.

Students taking J-Term classes at Goucher will have the benefits of small class sizes, individualized attention from faculty, and the ability to complete a course in a shorter time frame. We encourage students to take advantage of our discounted prices for  J-Term tuition. We are offering this one-time pricing discount to help students progress towards their academic degree while understanding that financial situations for many have changed over the last year.

  • Personal Financial Planning
  • People Problems – Lessons from Organizational Behavior
  • Individuals, Groups, and Institutions: Understanding Identity and Working Towards Change
  • Society in the Age of Intelligent Machines
  • The Addicted Brain: Understanding America’s Drug Crisis
  • Computational Thinking with Data
