Liberal Education Requirements
Prior to Fall 2012

 

Who does this impact? 

What are the Liberal Education Program (LEP) Requirements?

Students intending to graduate from UMD must complete at least 35 semester credits from the LEP including:

  1. at least one course within each of the 10 LEP categories except where an option is provided. One course is defined as a minimum of two credits from a single course designator (e.g., ECON, SOC, MU).
  2. one course that emphasizes cultural diversity within the United States. These courses are designated with one asterisk (*).
  3. one course that emphasizes international perspective. These courses are designated with two asterisks (**).

Cultural diversity courses focus on being sensitive to and understanding significant differences among people in the United States. International perspective courses focus on understanding contemporary issues from a global perspective or understanding cultures and societies different from those in the United States.

Options

  1. Students may take two courses from Category 4 and none from Category 5 if the Category 4 courses have two different course designators.
  2. Students may take two courses from Category 9 and none from Category 10 if the Category 9 courses have two different course designators. Art and Art History are considered the same course designator.
  3. A maximum of 2 credits from approved PE and REC courses may be included in the total LEP credits but will not be applied to any category.

Where can I find the courses that fulfill the Liberal Education Program (LEP) Requirements?
