Global Learning/Cultural Diversity—Four Credits

Beginning with students entering Hope College in Fall 2012, the Cultural Diversity requirement has been replaced with a Global Learning requirement. Students entering Hope during or after Fall 2012 are required to complete two global learning (GL)-flagged courses.  Students are required to complete one GL-flagged course with a focus on domestic (U.S.) diversity; these courses have a GLD flag. Students are also required to take one GL-flagged course with a focus on international (non-U.S.) diversity; these courses have a GLI flag.  Global Learning courses are offered both throughout the General Education Program and in the majors.
