THE BACCALAUREATE PROGRAMS

Lehman College offers all of its students the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of themselves and their world by engaging in a thorough study of the liberal arts and sciences. To that end, the College has several curricula that satisfy the liberal arts and sciences requirement.

The Core Curriculum is a structured program of courses designed to provide a broad knowledge of the achievements and methods of the liberal arts and sciences and to develop student abilities to participate responsively in informed inquiry into subjects of both public and personal concern.
The undergraduate curriculum requires core courses in humanities, social and natural sciences, origins of the modern age, and problem-solving through quantitative reasoning. Students must complete writing courses and at least one course from a list of introductory courses in six of seven areas: social science; natural science; literature; the arts; comparative cultures; historical studies; and knowledge, self, and values. Major and minor fields of study are required, as well as demonstrating proficiency in oral English and foreign language.

The Lehman Scholars Program (LSP) offers capable and highly motivated students the atmosphere of a small, intimate college. The program features small seminars, mentors, and an extra-credit option. It provides an introduction to the liberal arts in the areas of English, foreign languages, natural science, social science, humanities, and the fine and performing arts. Students are eligible to apply to the program at any point prior to the completion of 64 credits. (For further information, see the "Lehman Scholars Program" under the alphabetical departmental listings.)

The Adult Degree Program (ADP) offers students 25 years of age or older a flexible curriculum under close faculty supervision. Students may earn up to 30 credits through internship, research, and tutorials. Up to 15 of these credits may be awarded for life experience. (See "Individualized Study Programs" under the alphabetical departmental listings.)

The Individualized Bachelor of Arts Program (IBAP) offers students who have more than 30 but fewer than 90 credits an opportunity to establish, with the assistance and approval of a faculty committee, their own individualized major. (See "Individualized Study Programs" under the alphabetical departmental listings.

The Bachelor of Arts-Master of Arts (B.A.-M.A.) Program is an option for entering freshmen with superior academic backgrounds. Students may arrange with departments offering both the B.A. and M.A. a suitable course of study that, at the end of four years, will lead to simultaneous awarding of the degrees.
To be eligible, entering freshmen must have high school averages of better than 90 and scores of at least 600 in the verbal and mathematics sections, respectively, of the Scholastic Aptitude Test. Matriculated students who wish to be considered must have achieved a cumulative index of at least 3.4 in no more than 54 earned credits. The B.A.-M.A. programs require attendance in at least one Lehman College summer session, preferably between the junior and senior years or after the completion of 90 credits.

Second Undergraduate Degree Programs. Lehman College accepts candidates for a second undergraduate degree when specific professional purposes dictate the need, and when the second degree represents preparation discrete from the preparation identified by the first bachelor's degree. Candidates must complete a minimum of 30 credits in residence (see definition of residence credits under the heading of CREDIT REQUIREMENTS), and must fulfill all the requirements for the new major and/or interdisciplinary program. Students must take the English Transfer Evaluation Exam and complete the college writing requirement as determined by that examination.
The liberal arts requirements from the first degree may satisfy the requirements for the second degree. In general, candidates will have fulfilled the college requirements with the first degree, but specific requirements may be recommended. Candidates for a second bachelor's degree must have their curricula approved by the Office of Academic Standards and Evaluation.

THE CUNY BACCALAUREATE PROGRAM

Lehman participates in the CUNY Baccalaureate Program, which allows students the opportunity to earn up to 30 credits through internship, research, or work experience, 15 of which may be earned for prior work experience, and to take courses at other senior colleges within City University. For further information consult the Office of Academic Advisement (Shuster Hall, Room 280).
For students for whom English is a second language, an extensive program of English acquisition is offered in conjunction with structured study of the liberal arts and sciences. (See p. 14 for program names and degrees as well as the alphabetical listing of departments and programs.)
