MC’s ‘J-Term’ features Civil War and Reconstruction

Experiential Education Courses – January Term 2010

Learning by experience is valued by the Maryville College community, and January Term, or “J-Term” as it is more commonly known, helps guarantee that students are given opportunities for up-close, hands-on experience and reflection.

Classes during this three-week academic session occur between the fall and spring semesters and typically begin on the Monday following New Year’s Day. Since the length of the term is compressed, classes are longer and more frequent (generally between 9 a.m. and noon each day) for more intense and concentrated study.

A variety of courses are open to them. Civil War and Reconstruction is one

The Civil War and Reconstruction in Tennessee with Dr. Aaron Astor

The course introduces students to the complex experience of Tennessee during the Civil War and Reconstruction era. Tennessee was a divided state in a divided union. Important battles took place in major places, but most of the contest occurred on less iconic ground – often in family homes divided by war and ideology. The three week course includes one week of extensive travel to museums and historic sites throughout the state in
