Fort Lewis College introducing four new academic programs for fall 2018

Students planning to study at Fort Lewis College (FLC) when classes begin in August 2018 will find a few more academic options from which to choose. Four new programs will be added to the many programs that FLC already offers. Talk to an admission counselor for more information about the academic experiences available.

Master of Arts in Education: Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education
This will be the third master’s program for FLC. The Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education program is aimed at educators who wish to both earn a graduate degree and apply for the Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CLD) Endorsement with the Colorado Department of Education or the Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) Endorsement from the New Mexico Department of Public Education.

This new program is already accepting applications and will begin classes in fall 2018. Visit https://graduate.fortlewis.edufor more information.

Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Science
Fort Lewis College is nationally-recognized by the Princeton Review, Sierra Club, and others as a leader in environmental issues and education. The new Environmental Science degree is for students with an interest in science and the environment. The degree will bring together aspects of biology, chemistry, engineering, geosciences, and health, and can complement the existing degree in Environmental Studies.

The new Environmental Science degree will begin in fall 2018. More information coming soon.

Pre-Health Professions Certificate
Healthcare is a rapidly growing industry nationwide, and Public Health, Exercise Science, and other health-related degrees at Fort Lewis College are already popular programs. The addition of a Pre-Health Professions Certificate will package selected courses in biology, chemistry, anthropology, psychology, and other areas to give students the opportunity to complete a certificate program in one year to assist them in pursuing a health-related career.

The Pre-Health Professions Certificate will launch in fall 2018. More information coming soon.

Elementary/Early Childhood Education Endorsement
There is a national need for more teachers, in particular more trained and credentialed teachers. Fort Lewis College has been training teachers for more than 100 years and continues to evolve to meet the needs of education today. This certificate will give students and working professionals the chance to further their own expertise as they progress toward a Colorado Early Childhood 2.0 Credential.

The Elementary/Early Childhood Education Endorsement will begin in summer 2018. More information coming soon.
