A Miami Tradition for a Connected World

A traditional strength of Miami University is its emphasis on liberal education. Miami University was founded on the belief that a liberal education provides the best possible framework for life in a changing world. That emphasis on liberal studies continues today and is referred to as the Miami Global Plan (MGP). Liberal education complements specialized studies in your major and provides a broadened context for exploring social, academic, political, and professional choices. The MPG is designed to help students understand and creatively transform the future with the tools to ask questions, examine assumptions, exchange views with others, and become a better global citizen.

All students beginning in Fall 2023, regardless of major, are required to participate in the Miami Global Plan for Liberal Education
