What is a Pathway? Click HERE for a brief video that answers this question!

 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 help you explore a new area of interest and even begin working
 toward a potential minor or second major. A Biology major might decide that competency in Spanish would be
 an important 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 Global Studies, Contemporary European Studies, or African Diaspora Studies. Courses taken in Pathways
 can count toward minors or second majors in a wide variety of areas.

 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!
