Liberal Education requirements
Liberal Education (LE) is an essential part of your undergraduate education at the University of Minnesota. LE courses help you investigate the world from new perspectives, learn ways of thinking that will be useful to you in many areas of your life, and grow as an active citizen and lifelong learner. If you are unsure which requirements apply to you, contact your academic adviser.
If you were admitted to a degree program in fall 2010 or later, you will follow these revised LE requirements.
If you were admitted to a degree program before fall 2010, you will continue to follow these pre-fall 2010 LE requirements.
What do you need to know about the transition to the new LE requirements if you were admitted before fall 2010? Find out here.
The list of LE courses the University offers has been revised. Beginning fall 2010, all students must choose from the new LE course lists.
