The coursework for Green Oaks Term begins during winter term after students have been accepted into the program. A half-credit course prepares students for the Green Oaks program through reading and discussion of core background texts.

During Green Oaks Term, students take three regular one-credit courses and one half-credit course: "Natural History of Green Oaks" is taught by a faculty member in the natural sciences; "The Natural Imagination" is taught by a faculty member in the creative and performing arts; and two courses, "Deep Maps of Place" and "Dynamics of Intentional Community" are taught by a faculty member in the social sciences.

Students in each course take part in research projects to be presented in seminars and poster presentations at the conclusion of the term. In addition, the term includes workshops and experiences in relevant topics such as astronomy, photography, first aid, and weather signs.
