Special Academic Sessions


The Study NYC Visiting Student Semester is designed to provide students from outside of the New York metropolitan area an affordable opportunity to “Study Away” for a semester in the greatest city in the world. Students may participate in this program during the Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer semesters.

Participants in the Study NYC Visiting Student Semester will be offered the opportunity to choose courses that can be applied to their major/general education degree requirements at their home institution or design an “urban semester” comprised of properly themed courses in such areas as African and African American Studies, Anthropology, Business, Dance, English,  History, Latin American and Puerto Rican Studies, Multimedia Journalism, Music, Political Science, Psychology, Social Work, and Sociology.

Study NYC Visiting Student Semester participants will benefit from Lehman’s expert faculty, including five Distinguished Professors, wide variety of courses across over 60 disciplines, opportunity to participate in a variety of community service experiences, internship placement assistance, and full use of all campus facilities. Lehman’s location in the Bedford Park section of the Bronx is minutes from Manhattan via both the 4 and D trains and is accessible to all areas of the Bronx and lower-Westchester by bus.  To learn more about this program contact the Office for Special Academic Sessions at (718) 960-8036 or email us at
