At MMC “college” and “career” go hand in hand. Our location on New York City’s Upper East Side means that you’re never more than a few steps or subway stops from Wall Street, Broadway, Museum Mile, the United Nations, and major TV networks. CityEdge is a shared set of concentrated experiences that provide you with expanded opportunities for career exploration and readiness while deepening your immersion in NYC—the global capital for the arts, media, commerce, finance, fashion, research, technology, and education.


Marymount Manhattan College (MMC) is a private, four-year, coeducational, nonsectarian college located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, offering outstanding programs in liberal arts and sciences, business, communications and media 

arts, and the performing arts.
Founded in 1936 by the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary (RSHM) as an urban extension of Marymount College in Tarrytown, New York, the College became independent in 1961 and coeducational and nonsectarian in 1971, and currently enrolls approximately 2,000 full- and part-time students. Drawn to MMC’s strong academic tradition and the rich ethnic and cultural diversity that makes New York the most cosmopolitan of international cities, students attend MMC from 48 states and 50 countries around the world.

MMC is recognized for its small classes, personalized academic offerings, committed academic advisors, and outstanding faculty. With 29 major fields of study and more than 40 minors and pre-professional programs to choose from, students at MMC are prepared to meet the challenges of the 21st century. They gain the practical skills of communicating ideas, solving problems, and seeing broader points of view that are essential in successfully navigating an ever-changing and increasingly demanding work environment.

Students at MMC can tailor their bachelor’s degrees to find the programs that are right for them. If students have several different interests and skills, they are encouraged to sample from a wide variety of discipline-based foundation courses and advanced disciplinary courses or pursue the liberal studies programs for a broad base of knowledge. All students are assigned a faculty advisor for individual guidance in degree planning, graduate school preparation, and career options.

Your career begins on day one at Marymount Manhattan
CityEdge, MMC’s unique four-year college-to-career program, gives every student a personalized liberal arts education combined with exciting career development opportunities in the heart of New York City. A city-infused curriculum, research opportunities, internships, community engagement experiences, and career mentorship are just a few of the advantages students receive from the CityEdge program.

To get you off on the right foot, you will take a New York City Seminar. This special seminar for first-year students is your first taste of education in a city rich with professional opportunities. You’ll join classmates from your major in a small, experiential class that immerses you into the city. Recent course titles include Business in NYC, New York’s Literary Women, The Galleries of New York, New York’s Artists, and Social Change in the City.

Financing your education
With approximately 90% of the student body receiving some form of financial aid, MMC awards scholarships using a variety of criteria, including academic achievement and demonstrated leadership. All students are encouraged to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to possibly qualify for government grants, loans, and other MMC monies for which they may be eligible. MMC has a priority deadline of March 15 for fall entrants and December 15 for spring entrants.

The best of both worlds
MMC is comprised of nearly 2,000 students in a city of nine million people. The College offers small classes and an 11:1 student-faculty ratio, while having all the resources of New York City at its fingertips. Students are drawn to MMC for its strong academic reputation, outstanding faculty, and beautiful campus on the Upper East Side. In August 2015 MMC opened the doors to its newest residence hall, Cooper Square, located in the bustling East Village neighborhood. The Cooper Square residence hall is a short subway ride to MMC’s main campus and a quick walk to iconic theatres and performance spaces, great restaurants, and rich cultural attractions. Amenities include a fitness center, student lounge, bicycle storage room, and a beautiful wrap-around terrace.

Also in the summer of 2015, MMC’s Division of Communication and Media Arts underwent a major makeover, designing and installing a complete state-of-the-art Digital Media Production Studio. The studio is equipped with a TV control room, a TV studio, and an audio recording facility. The new media spaces mirror those found in national news production studios, offering students significant experiential learning opportunities.
