About Pine Manor College

Pine Manor College is a private liberal arts college just minutes away from Boston that offers students a personalized education grounded in the liberal arts tradition. At PMC students receive individualized academic, social, and financial support to achieve their goals. We are proud to be a global community that promotes multiculturalism, social responsibility, and collaborative leadership in an inclusive learning environment both in and out of the classroom.

Our mission
Pine Manor is committed to educating and empowering a diverse student body—one student at a time—with the knowledge and skills they will need to meet the challenges of career, community, and citizenship in today’s global society.

Pine Manor is one of the most affordable private colleges in the country. Our 2015–2016 tuition is $26,360, and room and board is $12,980. Ninety percent of our students receive financial aid. We believe that students should not be denied a private education due to cost.

Best of both worlds
PMC’s picturesque campus is situated on 43 wooded acres in the Chestnut Hill section of Brookline, Massachusetts, five miles from downtown Boston. The College is accessible by both car and public transportation, known as the “T,” Boston’s trolley and subway system.

Global village
PMC is proud to be home to students from all over the world. Our students come from more than 20 different countries, including Brazil, Burma, Canada, Cape Verde, China, El Salvador, France, Guatemala, Haiti, Hong Kong, Jamaica, Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Taiwan, Uganda, Ukraine, the United States, Venezuela, and Vietnam.

Pine Manor students develop practical skills for today’s workforce through our applied arts and sciences courses. Each Pine Manor student is expected to complete an internship during senior year and encouraged to take part in exploratory internships throughout their studies. PMC’s career services staff, in close collaboration with faculty, guide each student’s exploration of career options and internships while providing necessary resources to assist with the navigation of this process. Every student can expect guidance with exploring their values, interests, life, and career goals, as well as assistance with résumé preparation, cover letter writing, and interviewing skills.
