Short Term Study Away

J-Term Programs waterfront buildingsJ-Term
J-Term programs are led by a PLU faculty member, cover a wide range of subjects, and range in location from the Tacoma Hill Top to Tanzania. The chance to participate in these international and domestic study programs lets you immerse yourself in a country, culture or discipline that you never imagined – and get credit for it, too.
