NOVA-MU Biology Course Equivalencies

NOTES:
  • BIO 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 "NS" designation, including BIO 901, count toward Marymount's Liberal Arts Core requirement for a Natural Science with Lab.
