Pre 2013 General Education Program (Required Courses)
Lehman College provides undergraduates with not only a major specialization but also training in a range of basic skills and general subjects on beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels. In this way, a bachelor's degree represents both training in a special field and the skills and knowledge to meet life's varied challenges responsibly, intelligently, and creatively.
General Education includes subjects comprising the shared intellectual heritage of our diverse culture. It teaches critical thinking and encourages accurate and effective communication. General Education supports the integration, synthesis, and application of knowledge, and includes proficiency in information literacy. Undergraduate education offers not only specialized knowledge and professional skills but also the multiple views and general intellectual abilities developed by the study of liberal arts and sciences that provide a foundation for independent, responsible living.
Students who entered Lehman College before the fall 2013 semester must meet the Pre-2013 General Education Requirements. There are four categories of required courses: Foundation, Distribution, Integration, and Writing Intensive.
