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.
