J-Term Programs for Fairfield & Non Fairfield

J-Term Programs at our Centers are a terrific way to add a short-term study abroad experience to your academic plan!  These programs are well-suited for those students who wish to advance their language skills, who are athletes, or for those who don't have a semester available to be abroad, and for you!

The Fairfield University J-Term programs are open to Fairfield and Non-Fairfield Students!  Gather some friends and explore the world together! Please see here the list of programs available for the January Intersession 2022 Term!
