January Term

Accelerated learning. Topics that are relevant to our world. 

January term is a two-week, immersive learning opportunity available to enrolled undergraduate students at Loyola University New Orleans. Students will dive deeply into one topic and devote their full attention to learning and engaging in dialogue with classmates about important, timely subjects.

The January term is completely optional. Each three-credit course offered during J-term will be rigorous and have demanding assignments. For some students, this is an opportunity to catch up on credits or get ahead in their studies. For other students, this time may be best used to rest and recharge before the start of the spring semester on January 17, 2023.

The courses span different subject areas and are offered in different modalities—online, HyFlex, and in person. Many are electives and some, where noted, meet core requirements. Given the condensed and intensive nature of these courses, students may only register for one course and spots are available on a first come, first served basis. The January 2023 courses will be finalized and shared on this page during the fall semester.
