Winterim Master Class


Winterim is a four-week intensive winter term that provides you with additional opportunities for deep, authentic experiential learning. You are able to choose a master class in an area of personal interest, then delve deeply into the topic of your choice, refining your individual skills and understanding.

To enhance your learning, each course offers either a local, regional, or international travel experience. Since you will be putting in the same number of hours as a typical semester, but with the intense focus on one subject area, you will receive academic credit for these classes.

Examples of Past Winterim Experiences:

  • Studying the culture, customs & language of the Peruvian people & traveling to Peru, climbing Machu Picchu
  • Street Art: Studying skills like silkscreening, spray painting, stencil making & graphic design to create original street art. Trips to local museums & art studios enhanced this course.
  • Marine Biology: Delving deeply into the science of Marine Biology and traveling to Belize to study the rich cultural and biological diversity of the local marine life.
