These are not, necessarily, the biggest, best, or most popular programs at the college, but they are the ones that just “caught my eye” as unique, special, interesting, or just plain awesome.

From the Birmingham-Southern College website, 2023: “Innovate and Explore! For over fifty years, Exploration Term has served as a defining characteristic of Birmingham-Southern, providing an intellectually playful hiatus from the regular term—a moment when students can travel, engage in focused inquiry, complete an internship, or develop a new skill. Exploration Term occurs each January when students take the month to engage in a single, intensive learning project, embodying the notion of learning for its own sake, providing students and faculty alike an opportunity to experiment, innovate, and explore. Students must complete at least two Exploration Term projects. They can do so in three ways: faculty-led travel projects, on campus projects, and independently designed projects.”
