Teaching & Learning in the English Multimodal Lab

This short film discusses teaching and learning the English Multimodal Learning Lab

Students entering their junior and senior years may well want to look to the future and think seriously about the value of an affordable and rewarding Lehman English M.A in Literature, Composition and Rhetoric, Creative Writing, and (soon!) Professional Writing.  This degree makes good use of the transition between college and career, it prepares graduate students for professional, teaching, and writing lives, and our M.A. graduates have gone on to succeed in business, teaching, writing, doctoral study, and university writing positions (among other callings).  Talk to your professors and mentors about the value of a Lehman English M.A. - and if you're at all interested, consider taking a graduate course while you're still an undergraduate, when tuition is cheaper, knowing you can roll the course over into your M.A. if you're accepted into the program later on.

Make an appointment with Undergraduate Advising, Honors Advising, or Graduate Advising today - you'll be glad you did!
