J-Term study tours have become part of the culture of Carthage, says Associate Provost David Steege. More than 20 faculty-led study tours are offered every academic year, with some offered in June. This culture has earned Carthage the a spot in the Top 5 in the country among baccalaureate institutions for student participation in short-term study abroad.
