In the context of internationalization of higher education in China, this essay analyzes some inherent differences between the stem disciplines and humanities disciplines when it comes to the internationalization of curriculum and implementation. With a focus on the challenges facing the internationalization of the liberal arts, or humanities disciplines, a functional 3M model, that is, the internationalization of “Mind,” “Method,” and “Medium”, was proposed to address different aspects of the internationalization process. Moreover, we proposed multiple strategies that could possibly promote the professional development of faculty members along the three specific dimensions, aligning the strategies with the working definitions within each dimension of the 3M model.
