Winter Term Projects

January WT - Sophomores

Sophomores will have three options for winter term project credit.  Sophomores are invited to participate in the Sophomore Practicum Program sponsored by the Career Development Center and the Center for Engaged Liberal Arts (CELA), continue their language study by participating remotely in an approved course throughout the spring semester, or participate in both options simultaneously.  A list of approved courses can be found in the project brochure for each of the language study options. 

PLEASE NOTE: Sophomores who will be enrolled in classes during the spring semester cannot participate in the Language Study options for winter term credit.
 

Group Project Applications

Project registration has been extended to Tuesday, December 15th for the Sophomore Practicum and Sophomore Practicum + Language Study.  The Sophomore Language Study application will close on January 19th, 2021. Email soar@oberlin.edu with any questions about the Sophomore Practicum Program.  Email Elizabeth Hamilton at elizabeth.hamilton@oberlin.edu for information about the language study option.

Due to the changes to the academic and winter term calendars, individual projects are not available at this time.
