 What is a Pathway?

 Recognizing that today’s—and tomorrow’s—challenges are not confined to separate academic subject
 areas, the Marist Core engages you in a four-course interdisciplinary Pathway. This set of courses
 addresses a focused question or area of study from at least three disciplinary perspectives.

 Language study is particularly crucial in today’s global community. Students may pursue proficiency
 through a Pathway in French, Spanish, or Italian, or take language courses as part of Pathways engaging
 with a particular culture.

 All students must select their Pathway by the end of the first year of study. Even as it fulfills requirements
 in the Marist Core, this "bundle" of courses can get you started on shaping your knowledge and skills in
 innovative ways. A Biology major might decide that competency in Spanish would be a helpful asset and
 choose a Pathway in Spanish or Latin American & Caribbean Studies. An Accounting major with an interest
 in international business might opt for a Pathway involving cross-cultural analysis, such as Contemporary
 European Studies, African Diaspora Studies, or Global Studies.

 Whichever Pathway you choose, its courses may help you pursue a minor, a second major, or any subject  that
 will enrich your academic experience as a whole. Use your Pathway as an opportunity to explore new ground!
