When are classes offered and what does a typical student schedule look like?
During the fall and spring semesters at Lewis & Clark, courses are generally offered in the evenings (5:30-8:30 pm). There is also the occasional weekend course during the year. During the summer term, courses are offered on a compact schedule, usually with longer days for an intensive period (1-3 weeks).
Full-time students who want to complete the program in two years can expect to spend two days a week in K-12 schools completing internship and practicum hours, and will take 3-4 courses per term. Part-time students who want to complete the program in three or more years can expect to spend one day a week in K-12 schools, and will take 1-3 courses per term. Some of the required courses are sequenced, while others are not, thus providing both structure and flexibility.
Students must begin their program in either the summer or fall term; attendance during at least one summer term is also required (due to the fact that some courses are only offered during the summer).
