internal transfer- A&S to Lynch

<p>I will be a freshman this fall, and I am in the College of Arts& Sciences. I would like to transfer to the Lynch School of Education, and I know that I cannot do this until after freshman year. Are there certain courses that I should take freshman year, so that if I am able to transfer, I will not be behind in LSOE? Thank you!</p>

<p>Read the orientation manual and focus on the courses that Lynch Frosh are told to take. Make sure you take the same.</p>

<p>So even though I am in A&S, am I able to take the course PY 030 Child Growth and Development through LSOE?</p>

<p>You will need to petition the Dept Chair (send them an e-mail) to gain access to that course since it is 'Restricted' to Lynch students.</p>

<p>Dear cultureshock : Are you absolutely sure that the Lynch School of Education is your passion? The job market in education is very tight right now and will not likely change in the next three year's time. My recommendation would be to stay very much involved with your A&S major while also pursuing LSOE.</p>

<p>Although this is just informational, John Cawthrone's retirement as Associate Dean will be a loss for the LSOE. No, not a rank changing event, but certainly John (as he preferred to be known) was an exceptional educator and passionate about challenging BC students to achieve their best. </p>

<p>The summary article follows :</p>

<p>*Nearly 150 Lynch School of Education students and alumni turned out for a reception on April 29 in the Yawkey Center’s Murray Room to wish Associate Dean John Cawthorne well as he retired after 13 years. The event was organized by graduating seniors.</p>

<p>Cawthorne was named assistant dean in 1997, after serving as a senior research associate in the study of testing, evaluation, and educational policy at LSOE and following an appointment as director of the education bureau for the National Urban League from 1995-1997. Cawthorne earned a bachelor's degree from Harvard University and a master's degree in teaching from Antioch-Putney Graduate School of Education, and he has served as a consultant to school systems in the Boston area and nationally, including Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Atlanta.*</p>

<p>cultureshock - I can't answer your question about transferring but I can tell you not to worry too much about the loss of Dean Cawthrone. While he was a well-respected educator and the department will miss him, the potential candidates for the position are equally respected and have remarkable experience and reputations. It could be a great time for new growth and new leadership at Lynch!</p>
