Marymount Manhattan College (MMC) is a private, four-year, coeducational, nonsectarian college located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan that offers 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 as an urban extension of Marymount College in Tarrytown, New York, the College became independent in 1961 and coeducational and nonsectarian in 1971. It currently enrolls approximately 2,000 full- and part-time students.
MMC is recognized for its small classes, personalized academic offerings, committed academic advisors, and outstanding faculty. With 30 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 Program 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.
