  • What is the "experiential learning" requirement?

    The Global Miami Plan now requires incoming students to complete an experiential learning requirement. From the EL website, "Experiential learning is the process of making meaning from direct experience in a real world or an "out of the traditional classroom" context. It offers students the opportunity to initiate lifelong learning through the development and application of academic knowledge and skills in new or different settings."

    Visit the EL website for additional information and courses that satisfy the requirement.

  • What courses can I take?

    POL offers a wide variety of courses each semester. Visit the course catalog to read brief descriptions of the POL course offerings. NOTE: not every course is offered every semester.
