Fall 2013 Liberal Arts Core Course Offerings at Reston (classes begin August 26)
DSC 201 Transfer Student Experience
This class introduces new transfer students to Marymount University and to the inquiry model of learning. The course aims to ease the transition to a new university through a focus on fundamental liberal arts skills – inquiry, critical thinking, information literacy, and communication – as well as participation in a variety of collaborative activities that offer positive interaction and support from a peer mentor, instructor, and classmates. The course also makes use of the Washington area's rich resources. This course is required of all students transferring 12 or more credits to the University and any nontraditional students having significant work or life experience transferring fewer than 12 credits to the University. Second-degree Nursing students are exempt from this requirement. The course should be taken in the first semester at Marymount. Liberal Arts Core/University Requirements Designation: INQ. (1)
