Winter Term

                  January 2-25, 2020

                  The winter term creates opportunities for students to expand their academic options. The Winter Term will provide opportunities to enrich students' academic experiences, which include, but are not limited to: studying abroad, completing a program, conducting research, completing an internship, or taking an additional on-campus or online course. Miami is the first public university in Ohio to offer a Winter Term.
