Degree Planning for NOVA Students
First, you should become familiar with some terminology. At Marymount, a student earns a degree by coursework in the following:
- Liberal Arts Core – often referred to by Marymount’s faculty and students as “core requirements.” These are comparable to Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) general education electives. Learn more about Marymount’s Liberal Arts Core.
- Major Requirements – at NOVA, these are sometimes called “degree requirements”
- Electives – general courses of the student’s choice
Marymount offers majors in approximately 30 disciplines, as well as teaching certification in several areas.
We can help you plan your NOVA curriculum to allow you to make good progress toward your ultimate bachelor’s degree.
