In recognition of the increasing globalization in all sectors of world society, the Liberal Studies International Experience has been established. Students participate in designated, pre-approved study abroad experiences in a different country. Options include a variety of short term and semester formats designed to meet the needs of different students, including those with family and work responsibilities. The purpose of the experience is to increase student awareness of cross-cultural and global issues - issues that are critical to their development as future teachers and citizens in a complex, rapidly changing world. All liberal studies majors are required to participate in an international experience approved by the program director.
To meet the international experience requirement, majors must complete one of the following:
Students must have fulfilled the Writing Placement Assessment with a score of 8 or above or with a grade of C (2.0) or better in RWS 280 or RWS 281 [or LING 281] before taking ENGL 306W and earn a grade of C (2.0) or better.
