Students looking for information about flags should visit the UGS Flags page.
The purpose of the Global Cultures flag is for students to gain greater familiarity with cultural groups outside the United States. To that end, courses carrying the Global Cultures flag ask students to explore the practices, beliefs, and histories of at least one non-U.S. cultural group, past or present, with the goal of encouraging students to reflect on their own cultural experiences within a global context.
Once the flags have been fully implemented, all undergraduates will be required to earn credit for at least one course flagged for Global Cultures. Information on requirements for individual degree programs can be found in the current Undergraduate Catalog.
