NOVA-MU Natural Science Course Equivalencies

NOTES:
  • BIO 900 and PSC 900 are unspecified electives that counts toward the 120 hours required for graduation. They do not, however, fulfill Marymount's Liberal Arts Core requirements.
  • Courses with an "NS" designation, including those numbered 901, count toward Marymount's Liberal Arts Core requirement for a Natural Science with Lab.
