Liberal Education Requirements

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.
