Macaulay at Lehman College

Macaulay students join with the Lehman Scholars Program in the Bronx, an academic environment built on excellence and a spirit of collaboration. The Lehman Scholars Program offers interdisciplinary honors seminars each term on a wide variety of subjects, from classical to contemporary. These seminars provide rich opportunities for writing, discussion, and presentations. Students may take any course in the College catalog for one additional credit, with permission of the instructor, allowing them to explore a subject more deeply.

At Lehman, honors students learn from a world-class faculty of eminent writers, scientists, and Distinguished Professors. Students have access to Lehman’s outstanding academic, athletic, and cultural facilities, including state-of-the-art research laboratories, a cutting-edge Information Technology Center, a sports and recreation complex ranked among the finest in the metropolitan area, and a concert hall that critics have hailed as “acoustically perfect.”
