Academics: I think that the professors are great. There's a lot of young professor at my school. I think that it empowers young people to want to succeed

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I transferred to this school mainly because of the new Social Work graduate program they installed in the school recently. I'm not sure if SW is a unique major at campus but it is a popular one based on the one class I took with others who all had Social Work listed as their major. There are a lot of job opportunities for this major.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Jordana Lopez-da Silva
View all previous student authors

With a myriad of majors and interdisciplinary and special programs to choose from, the academics at Lehman truly offer students one of the best opportunities to expand their intellectual horizons. Students are required to take core curriculum courses in humanities, social and natural sciences, mathematics, and foreign language, along with their major and minor requirements. For those who desire a more rigorous academic experience, they can apply to the Macaulay Honors College. This program only admits incoming freshmen, and MHC students must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.5, take at least nine honors seminars and two years of foreign language, and enroll in major requirements, as well. However, MHC students are exempt from taking the general college’s core curriculum requirements, and they don’t need to declare a minor, either. They are also granted scholarships for all four years, stipends, and the latest MacBook Pro laptops.

However, students already attending Lehman can apply to join the Lehman Scholars Program if they have less than 64 credits. LSP students are held to the same academic standards as MHC students, but unlike MHC students, they are only required to take four honors seminars, and they don’t qualify for the scholarships or receive stipends or laptops. Nonetheless, LSP students still have access to all internship programs and seminars that are offered to MHC students, and all students, whether they are in the honors programs or general college, have access to some of the best professors—dynamic and quirky instructors who base their grades on the caliber of the students’ work, as well as class participation, effort, and obvious interest and passion for the subject matter. There is no such thing as grade inflation at Lehman.

Online Courses
There is a variety of online courses offered at Lehman, especially because it is a commuter college and many of the students work full-time and support their own families. All instructions and materials are provided through Blackboard, and work is submitted through the discussion board and drop box. Online courses are on the rise at Lehman because of how convenient and flexible they are; the only downside is that there is little to no professor/student interaction.
