Evening Programs (LCIE) - Graduate


The Lindenwood College for Individual Education (LCIE) program was designed specifically for working adults. Courses are scheduled on the quarter system and a student earns nine (9) credits during each quarter with a total of thirty-six (36) credits possible during a calendar year. Classes meet from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm one night per week. Class enrollment is limited to 12-14 students and writing and oral skills are emphasized. Courses are taught using the Socratic Method emphasizing student interaction; thus, students benefit from the experiences their peers bring to the class room.

Courses in the LCIE program are grouped in clusters. Each cluster consists of three related courses designed to offer the student the best combination for analysis and synthesis of the material.

Depending on the Graduate Degree chosen, a minimum of forty eight (48) semester hours are required through the LCIE program. In most cases, five clusters (45 semester hours) are in the area of emphasis. If required, the remaining three semester hours toward the degree are completed through a capstone course.

Each student is assigned a Faculty Advisor (FA) who guides the student through the program. The student is required to meet with the FA one time per term. The FA will provide an overview of the student’s progress, assist with course registration, and serve as a resource for the student.
