Course Schedules & Descriptions

We are tremendously excited to be launching our new English curriculum, which decenters European-based Literature courses while foregrounding courses that reflect the diversity and complexity of our literary and cultural traditions - and which also features newly configured specializations in Creative Writing and Professional Writing.  Thanks for your patience as we transition from our old curriculum/major to our new one.  Our advisors are on hand EITHER to help you finish out the old curriculum, if you choose to remain with it (as rising seniors may choose to do) OR to (re)declare your major in the new curriculum (as rising juniors may choose to do).  We've done our best to provide courses for both degree options.  Our advisors are available for one-on-one sessions to help you complete your BA in as smooth and timely a way as possible. 

For permissions, email your name, EMPLID, and course-requests to english.advising@lehman.cuny.edu.  (EHP students should email the EHP Director at english.honors@lehman.cuny.edu.  Graduate students should email the MA Director at englishgrad.advising@lehman.cuny.edu.  See below for full English Advising information.)

To register for courses (once you have permissions), log into CUNYfirst (and ScheduleBuilder) and search for courses in English literature (ENG) and English writing (ENW).

English majors and minors are encouraged to take HUM 470 to get academic credit for an internship while burnishing their pre-professional knowledge and skills and planning for the next step in their professional or academic career.  For guidance and permissions, contact City and Humanities Director Joseph McElligott at joseph.mcelligott@lehman.cuny.edu

English Advising - General Information

Permission is not advising!  You must meet with an advisor one-on-one in video-conference to discussion Transcript Reviews, iDeclaration of Major or Minors, Transfer Credit Evaluations, Program Planning and Major Worksheets, Graduation Audits, Signatures, and General Advising needs.  Be prepared! Have your EMPLID ready.  If you are seeking transcript evaluation, have course descriptions on hand.

Waitlists, Open Seats, and (No) Overtallies:  Prior to the start of classes each term, waitlisted students are added to courses in order as seats become available.  Once classes begin, waitlists end and students may register only for courses with available seats.  Keep your eye open for emerging seats on CUNYfirst during Late Registration!  The English Department does not do overtallies. 

English Advising provides advisement and permissions for English Majors and Minors, Professional Communications MinorsEnglish Graduate Studies, and all students taking Lehman English courses.  (Students seeking advisement and permissions for FYI Composition courses should direct inquiries to fyi.office@lehman.cuny.edu.) 

Most of our ENG/ENW 100/200-level courses meet General Education and/or Writing Intensive requirements.  Students who take a 200-level ENG or ENW course need only three more courses to complete an English Minor in Literature, Creative Writing, or Professional Writing.  Several departments outside English require majors to take a 300-level literature or a creative/professional writing course in the English Department.

Several of our professional writing courses, including ENW 300, ENW 305, ENW 307, ENW 345, ENW 318, and ENW 320, are required for majors in other departments.  Students who take ENW 201 (Writing Essentials) or ENW 217 (Editing Essentials) + one ENW course related to their major are already halfway to a Minor in Professional Communications.
