About the  Academic English Studies (AES)

  • Lewis and Clark College's intensive English program was established in 1972. Academic English Studies (AES) is an academically oriented intensive English program which assists students in the development of essential language skills, appropriate learning strategies, and cross-cultural awareness. The Academic English Studies program, Lewis & Clark’s intensive English program, offers full-time (18-20 hours per week) instruction for low-intermediate through advanced English language students. Up to 24 undergraduate elective credits may be applied toward a Bachelor of Arts degree at Lewis & Clark. English as a Second Language (ESL) courses closely approximate undergraduate courses in teaching style, content, and expectations. The curriculum is designed to assist students in the development of essential language skills, appropriate learning strategies, and the cross-cultural awareness and sensitivities considered necessary for successful completion of their undergraduate or graduate studies. The AES program offers courses during both semesters of the academic year; an intensive summer session is also scheduled. Academic English Studies is a member of AAIEP and UCIEP. Graduating students of the AES will possess the necessary skills for successful integration into Lewis & Clark undergraduate and graduate programs, as well as those of other universities and businesses. Content-based courses reflect an emphasis on developing a student’s ability to meet the cognitive and affective challenges of the academic environment, while developing advanced English language skills.

About the  Lewis & Clark College

  • A Lewis & Clark education isn’t like anything you could experience anywhere else. We’re a private institution with a public conscience, a residential campus with global reach. Students and faculty throughout all three of Lewis & Clark’s schools—the College of Arts and Sciences, the Graduate School of Education and Counseling, and the Law School—pursue new ways of knowing by combining classic liberal learning with pioneering collaboration. Our students represent the next generation of global thinkers and leaders, unafraid to discard conventional thinking, civic complacency, and outmoded preconceptions. Yet they value what Lewis & Clark offers: an education built from the time-tested elements of careful study, original research, and spirited debate. So what makes the experience of our students unique? How about the inspiring beauty of our natural setting, on 137 wooded acres in Portland’s southwest hills. Or our rich history and our diverse, multicultural present. Or our commitment to interdisciplinary academic learning, as well as community engagement here in Portland and around the world. Add to this our well-stocked libraries, award-winning green buildings, and outstanding athletic facilities; our implementation of technology and the innovative research it allows; and above all our committed and engaged students, teachers, mentors, staff, alumni, donors, and friends. It all adds up to Lewis & Clark, a place where agile minds come to learn, to explore, and to work together.
