J-Term Continuing Education

J-Term Continuing Education
Students visit INSO's permaculture and organic production center in San Andres Huayapam, Oaxaca, Mexico during J-Term 2012.
Offered as a two-week intensive immersion course, January Term (J-term) is focused around faculty expertise and allows CEP students to delve into topics not covered in the core curriculum. Often these courses include hands-on work and engage outside experts. These two-credit short courses are open to the public for credit or certificate.

Immersion Courses  |  2013-2014

J-term courses for the 2013-14 academic year include: Climate Finance, Land Trusts and Climate Change, and "Slow Water" Policy in Oaxaca, Mexico, with the latter course held in Mexico. Public registration opens in late-summer for certificate or college credit. Bard CEP students enroll as part of their first-year course work and may select their top choice during orientation and workshop week in August.
