Gen Ed at Lehman

Freshman Year Initiative: Sample Course Programs

In their first semester at Lehman all full-time freshmen will study together in learning communities, which are pre-arranged "blocks" of courses.  All of the first semester communities will take English Composition I (ENG111), a math course, and three more Foundation and/or Distribution courses. 

Learning communities designed for students interested in medicine offer a lab science, for students interested in business include an economics course, for students interested in nursing have a biology course, for students interested in global studies include foreign language.  The other learning communities will provide a variety of courses, all of which include Foundation and Distribution Courses.

The following "maps" show what kinds of courses are included, according to this coloring scheme:
