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.
