January Term, or J-Term, is a month-long period of study in January in which all academic departments offer innovative courses on campus, as well as study tours in other countries. Past J-Term courses offered by sociology faculty include The Pursuit of Happiness, in which students examined various theories of what brings happiness, and Tourism and Glaciers: Melting Profits in Patagonia.
Research is built into the Carthage experience through the required senior thesis and options such as the paid Summer Undergraduate Research Experience. Students from the department often give presentations at professional conferences or publish their work in math journals and magazines.
