The Mission of Liberal Education at UMD
A liberal education prepares individuals to lead productive and socially responsible lives in a diverse and rapidly changing world. Liberal education 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.
Liberally educated students are “Prepared, Informed, and Committed.”
In summary, the new liberal education program provides the campus an opportunity to re-think how to better deliver and integrate liberal education throughout a student’s educational experience with the goal of improved student learning.
