World Engagement

The World Engagement component ensures that students interact with diverse ideas, perspectives, and/or experiences representative of global cultures and societies as part of their course of study. World Engagement components consist of a specified language requirement and eight credits in World Engagement electives.

  1. Non-English Language (NEL) (8 credits) -- Demonstrated proficiency through the 132 course level in a non-English language of the student's choosing. Students who place at a 231 level or higher via a placement test and who pass a proficiency test administered by a language department will have this eight-credit requirement waived.
  2. World Engagement Electives -- In addition to meeting the NEL requirement, students must earn at least 8 additional credits from some combination of the following WE electives*:
    1. NEL study beyond the 132-level
    2. Study Abroad
    3. Community-Engaged Learning (CEL)
    4. Culture and Values (CV)

*Each of these requirements must be satisfied by a different distinct course.
