If you are a non-major and interested in taking one of our General Education courses (ENGL 151(W); 153(W), 157(W), 162(W), and 165W), please be advised that we cannot over-tally students into closed sections of these classes.

Please note that any General Education course with the designation "SK" is restricted to students in the SEEK program, and is not open to general enrollment. All English courses in the ENGL 170W-300 range are only open to students within the English major or minor. Writing minor students may take 200- and 300-level writing workshops.  Other departments are offering courses in the Spring that satisfy the College Option Literature Requirement, and we encourage you to check the course offerings on CUNYfirst in Comparative Literature, East Asian Studies, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, History, Italian, Middle Eastern Studies, Russian, or Spanish. For a full list of courses that satisfy all Pathways, College Option, and W requirements, please visit Queens College General Education.
