Global Perspective Courses

A Marymount education reflects the mission of Marymount University and fulfills its Catholic identity and the heritage of its founders, the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary. The university fosters intellectual, spiritual, and moral growth through study, reflection, and application of knowledge. Marymount undergraduates prepare for the challenges of the 21st century as they develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to succeed, adapt to change, and contribute to society.
By completing requirements of the Liberal Arts Core, academic majors and minors, and University Requirements that are integrated within the core and majors, Marymount students become rigorous, reflective thinkers and practitioners. They are lifelong learners who value and respect the importance of knowledge as they integrate and apply it. Through this integrated learning experience, Marymount students gain intellectual and practical skills as well as knowledge of human cultures and the world around them. At the same time, they cultivate their sense of personal and social responsibility by examining their own lives.  
Among the fundamental competencies promoted by the core, major courses, and other university requirements is that of a Global Perspective.  Marymount undergraduates are required to complete at least one of the following "Global Perspective (GP)" designated courses, study abroad, or a foreign language course before they graduate.
