Liberal Education Requirements

Printer Friendly Version

Students who began at UMD in the fall 2012, or later, will be required to fulfill the following liberal education program requirements.  Students who began at UMD prior to the fall of 2012 may also follow these requirements to fulfill their liberal education program.  See the Catalog Use guidelines.

Mission Statement: The Goals of a Liberal Education

 

A liberal education prepares individuals to lead productive and socially responsible lives in a diverse and rapidly changing world.  The Liberal Education Program at UMD helps students develop competencies that can be adapted for use in any occupation and by virtually any individual.  Liberal education at UMD is not restricted to any particular part of the curriculum but is woven through each student’s course of study, including core requirements and requirements for the major.

 

The new program includes detailed criteria that bind courses together and help to create a common experience across the disciplines.  It promotes greater integration of liberal education throughout the student’s undergraduate education by encouraging the incorporation of liberal education courses into the major and in upper division courses. 

 

Liberally educated students are “Prepared, Informed, and Committed.”

 

Prepared to:

 Informed about:

 Committed to:
