Hi Jasmin - The number of students allowed in each classroom is being reduced and the number of students in each class are being reduced to ensure social distancing. Our class sizes are pretty small to begin with, but this makes them quite small. One of my classes is normally 12 people, and this semester it will be five to give everyone space.

How many Linfield core (required with choice) are expected in total? Do freshman typically spend first year on these — or is it reasonable to expect to take at least 2 classes per semester within your desired major?

What is your Creative Writing program like at Linfield?
The Linfield 'core' is known as the "Linfield Curriculum". It consists of 6 'modes of inquiry', two diversity requirements, and the 'inquiry seminar'. You can find the details here (https://www.linfield.edu/admission/learn/linfield-curriculum.html). It's kind of a cool approach - students focus on types of topics rather than taking '4 credits of math, 4 credits of philosophy, etc.'. First-year students are encouraged to complete their Inquiry Seminar (a college writing course) in the first year, but there is formal requirement for students to take only LC ("gen ed") courses in the first year.
Do you know what countries we would be visiting for the 2021-2022 term studying abroad?
