SUPPLEMENTARY COURSES

To round out the Global Fellows experience, two additional UMD courses are required of students participating in the program.These courses supplement the fall seminar and spring internship by providing greater depth and context to the academic experience. At least one such course must be completed prior to the internship semester. Courses completed prior to beginning the program may be used to satisfy this requirement! Courses must be taken at the university (no high school AP/IB course credit), must be at least 3 credits, and must be taken for a grade.

The courses below represent a sampling of supplementary courses offered across the university. Students may choose from this list or suggest additional courses for approval by emailing a course description to globalsemesterdc@umd.edu.
