As part of this effort, Erskine offers a month-long January term (“J-Term”) to allow for concentrated study in a specific field or interest. J-Term options include independent study, externships, and travel. Semester-long study abroad opportunities are also available in Scotland, England, France, or Mexico.
Erskine also takes academic support out of the traditional tutoring lab and puts it within your classes and among your peers through an innovative program that uses peer collaboration and study groups to reinforce course content and model good study habits.
And with a 12:1 student-faculty ratio and classes capped at 25, Erskine faculty take the time to really get to know you and push you to excel both personally and academically toward growth as a whole person. All of your classes will be taught by your professors, not by teaching assistants.
