Visit Group Website

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 Plan for Liberal Education, or the Global Miami Plan. Liberal education complements specialized studies in your major and provides a broadened context for exploring social, academic, political, and professional choices. It is designed to help students understand and creatively transform human culture and society by giving students the tools to ask questions, examine assumptions, exchange views with others, and become a better global citizen.
