As an ISEP student, you can build your own program by choosing your courses from a variety of fields. Use the notes for course searching to help you find which courses are available.

The Charles M. Snipes School of Business offers a full range of marketing, finance, business ethics and international business courses, plus internship opportunities.

The School of Music is nationally and internationally known for its choral, instrumental and sacred music programs. Students may concentrate on music studies or participate in one of many musical groups and performances on campus.

The Reese Institute for the Conservation of Natural Resources promotes conservation with responsible economic development by offering service learning, scholarship, fieldwork, travel opportunities and internships.

Lenoir-Rhyne also offers several highly regarded programs within the College of Health Sciences including the Solmaz Institute for Obesity, which draws on the expertise of faculty in athletic training, nursing, occupational therapy, and health and exercise science. The program supports students majoring in these fields, as well those wishing to become registered dieticians.

Lenoir-Rhyne is one of the few small liberal arts schools in the nation to offer full degree programs in the computing sciences. The Donald and Helen Schort School of Mathematics and Computing Science, supported by a $2.8 million endowment, offers travel to regional and national conferences, support for undergraduate research, presentations by visiting scholars, and access to a wide selection of current mathematical and computing software. The School also offers a certificate in enterprise systems using SAP. 

Students typically enroll in four classes per term which averages to 12 hours in class per week. A term runs for 16 weeks.

 

HOUSING

International students are automatically placed into the Global Village Residential Learning Community. The Global Village will promote meaningful interaction between students, across cultural difference, in a brave and hospitable living space in which residents approach their fellow community members with curiosity, patience and hospitality. The community houses exchange students, other international degree-seeking students, U.S. students that are study abroad returnees, and other U.S. students who want to build relationships with culturally diverse people.

The Center for International Education recommends students pre-purchasing a set of bedding, which also includes pillows and towels that will be set in their room prior arrival. If students opt for this bedding kit, a charge will be placed on their student bill.

Participants may remain in their permanent housing during the following vacation periods: Fall Break (long four day weekend), Thanksgiving, Winter Break, Easter, and Spring Break (Saturday - Saturday). Students must notify the Director of the Center for International Education at least two weeks in advance of the break regarding their intention to stay in the dorm during the break.

MEALS

Lenoir-Rhyne students enjoy an unlimited meal plan that can be used in the cafeteria. Students can also use Bear Bucks (cash placed on their meal cards) to purchase food at the other dining locations on campus, such as Joe's Coffee, Chick-Fil-A, and the Sandwich Shack. More information about dining services can be found here.

*Calendar Year students are not eligible for ISEP housing and meal benefits over the summer break.
