General degree requirements
A minimum of 128 credit hours are required for the degree consisting of the following requirements areas:
Marquette Core Curriculum (MCC)
Refer to the Marquette Core Curriculum (MCC) in the university section of this bulletin for courses that fulfill requirements. The university allows a maximum of two courses in the Discovery Tier to apply towards a primary major.
College of Nursing Required Cognate Courses
The College of Nursing builds on the foundational educational experience provided by the MCC with a curriculum that challenges students to deepen the knowledge, skills and values imparted to them through the MCC while at the same time developing their proficiency in nursing. The College of Nursing thereby amplifies and extends the students' core academic experiences in addition to focusing further learning on the pursuit of a specialized degree. College of Nursing students are required to take the following courses:
|BISC 1015||Principles of Human Anatomy and Physiology||5|
|BISC 1060||Chemistry for the Health Professions||3|
|BISC 2070||Biochemistry for the Health Professions||3|
|PSYC 1001||General Psychology||3|
|PSYC 2101||Introduction to Life-Span Developmental Psychology for Nursing Students||3|
|Total Credit Hours||17|
Nursing Major Courses
Refer to the Nursing Major page of this bulletin for the full list of Nursing and Health courses required for the Nursing major.
Nursing students are required to take 6 credits of general electives, typically two 3-credit courses. A general elective course is any Marquette course that is not already being used to fulfill an MCC, major or cognate requirement. Students pursuing a minor may use minor courses to count towards the general elective requirement.
