Global Engagement Requirement

The College of Arts and Humanities is committed to creating “global citizens equipped to assess received opinion, make independent judgments, and value the transforming power of the imagination.” --ARHU Mission Statement

The Global Engagement Requirement extends the college’s long-standing commitment to international education, and is part of a larger effort to enhance cross-cultural learning for all our undergraduate majors. Learning a second language opens pathways for common understanding.

Students may satisfy the ARHU Global Engagement Requirement in one of three ways, all of which require the study of a foreign language.

Note: All language courses at UMD require assessment for placement prior to registration for the course.
