2018 J-Mester

J-Mester at Morehouse College

The January Term, or J-Mester, will be held January 8 – 12, 2018. J-Mester is an exciting opportunity for Morehouse students to have a non-traditional educational experience during an intensive, one-week period before the beginning of the spring semester. J-Mester opportunities are geared toward strengthening Morehouse students' abilities to demonstrate acuity and agency in many developmental areas. J-Mester offerings will be offered in the following categories: Academic Seminars and Student Development Seminars.  

  • Academic and Student Development Seminars meet Monday through Friday for three (3) hours EACH DAY (9 a.m. - Noon or 1 - 4 p.m.). Please note that outside work will be assigned.

In order to receive one semester of Crown Forum, you must attend one (1) Academic Seminar or Student Development Seminar.

*Crown Forum requirements earned through J-Mester will be administered per semester — versus per Crown Forum session attended, and will be applied toward graduation requirements. Crown forum requirements will be given for COMPLETE ATTENDANCE AND PARTICIPATION ONLY.  Partial credit will not be given. A maximum of two crown semesters may be applied toward graduation requirements.*
