January Term Faculty-Led Off-Campus Courses

Each year, Linfield College offers 10-12 faculty-led off campus courses to locations all over world and destinations within the U.S. These are 4-credit courses that are planned and led by Linfield faculty. These courses bear the same rigorous standards and expectations as all other regular on-campus courses during the academic year.  The syllabus for each course will outline course requirements and expectations, prerequisites (if any) and will specify which particular graduation requirements (such as Linfield Curriculum designation, major or minor credits) will be satisfied. The courses are thematic and interdisciplinary in nature and are available to all Linfield students, regardless of their discipline or major, provided they meet these college requirements: 

  • To be eligible to apply, applicants must have completed at least one semester at Linfield
  • Applicants must be in good academic and social standing, with a minimum GPA of 2.75 at the time of application

Twelve qualified students are chosen for each site through a competitive selection process that includes a completed application, a personal interview with the faculty and other selection criteria deemed appropriate for particular courses.

While Linfield pays for the round trip air fare of the student’s first experience abroad, participants will also be assessed a program fee* that covers most on-site logistical expenses and mandatory insurance.  In addition, all January Term participants pay the prevailing College January Term credit fee and will be responsible for passport and visa fees, required vaccinations and other costs not specifically covered in the program fee. Participants will be informed what additional funds will be needed to cover expenses not specifically covered by the program fee.

Below is a listing of courses for 2016.  All items associated with each course are subject to revision if there are compelling factors not within Linfield’s discretion.  Please note that all courses listed are still subject to approval via the college’s budget process.

*Costs NOT included in the January Term Program Fee.

**Students: Before you begin the application process, we recommend that you share course information and the associated costs with your parents. See the link above for costs not included in the program fee.

PLEASE NOTE: A minimum 2.75 cumulative GPA is required in order to apply for any Jan Term course .
