SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Future students at the University of Utah may have to take a new course requirement in order to graduate.

The school is proposed a new course requirement that would begin in the fall of 2007. That's when all new students, freshmen and transfers who have never attended the school will be required to take a course that has an "international" designation.

U of U President Michael Young said he thinks an educated person should have some international exposure and perspective.

Examples of required courses would include introductory classes in international public health, economics and business. Some language classes or study abroad programs may also qualify.

The U. Board of Trustees is expected to vote on the requirement on Monday.
