Click on the links below for more detailed information on each category

  • Global Studies Inquiry: 6 credits; may be fulfilled through a Chapman sponsored semester abroad program or by completing two three-credit courses. Chapman sponsored international travel courses during interterm or summer count as one three-credit course in this category.
  • Citizenship, Community, Service Inquiry: 3 credits; may be fulfilled through approved courses or a pre-approved 3-credit service-learning internship or individual study.
  • Language Inquiry: 3 credits; Students complete part of their general education program in a language other than English so that they may lead inquiring, ethical and productive lives as global citizens. This may be accomplished by completing a language class at the intermediate or above level (i.e., a language acquisition course at the 201-level or a higher-level language course taught in a language other than English).
