The academic schedule at SEGL is challenging and engaging. Beyond spending time in their classes, students can expect 40 minutes for lunch each day and on average three free periods a week. In addition to Monday morning and Friday afternoon, our entire Wednesday is turned over to the Ethics and Leadership course, which provides an exciting break in our weekly schedule. Oftentimes, this takes the form of DC site visits and conversations with guest speakers. See our Ethics and Leadership page for details. We also have an Arabic and Chinese period, a weekly School Meeting, and a Friday night Flex Period. Students commute between our residence and the academic building on foot and via DC Metro for about 35 minutes each morning and afternoon.
Here you’ll find a typical sample schedule that illustrates some of SEGL’s course offerings. Note that each student’s schedule varies based on courseload.
