NOTES:

  • POL 900 is an unspecified elective that counts toward the 120 hours required for graduation. It does not, however, fulfill Marymount's Liberal Arts Core requirements.
  • Courses with an "SS-1" designation fulfill the Marymount Liberal Arts Core requirement for an Introductory Social Science course. 
  • Courses with an "SS-2" designation fulfill the Marymount Liberal Arts Core requirement for an Advanced Social Science course.
  • Note that only one equivalent of a course may be transferred in (i.e. GMU's GOVT 364 and GOVT 366 are both articulated as MU's POL 305). All additional instances will be transferred as POL 900 (Politics Elective).
