Jan Plan Faculty-Led Courses

Faculty Led Courses

Overview

The fundamental purpose of the January Program is to broaden and extend the learning experience at Colby by offering students distinctive opportunities not ordinarily available during the traditional academic semesters. By definition, January experiences are intensely focused, emphasizing engagement by faculty and students with a single subject matter or experience.

While January experiences share the broader learning goals of Colby’s curriculum, they are especially concerned with strengthening capacities for innovative thinking, independent work, creativity, intellectual exploration and experimentation.

Students may choose to spend Jan Plan abroad learning immersed in another culture.
