The College of Uncompromising Creativity in the City of Unlimited Inspiration
Marymount Manhattan College, founded in 1936, offers outstanding programs in liberal arts and sciences, business, communications and media arts, and the performing arts. MMC currently enrolls approximately 2,000 full- and part-time students from 48 states and 50 countries, drawn to the College’s strong academic tradition and the rich ethnic and cultural diversity that makes New York the most cosmopolitan of international cities.
MMC is recognized for its small classes, personalized academics, committed advisors, and outstanding faculty. With 31 majors 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 degrees to find the right programs for them. If students have several interests and skills, they are encouraged to sample from a wide variety of foundation 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 degree planning and graduate school/career guidance.
Your career begins on day one
At MMC, “college” and “career” go hand-in-hand. The College’s urban location means students are never more than a few steps or subway stops from Wall Street, Broadway, Museum Mile, the United Nations, TV networks, and everything else the city has to offer.
CityEdge, MMC’s unique four-year college-to-career program, gives every student a personalized liberal arts education combined with 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.
The best of both worlds
MMC offers two residence halls: Cooper Square, located in the bustling East Village neighborhood, and 55th Street, located in Midtown Manhattan just 16 short blocks from MMC. MMC’s residence halls are 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.
MMC’s Division of Communication and Media Arts underwent a major makeover, installing a state-of-the-art Digital Media Production Studio equipped with a TV control room, TV studio, and audio recording facility. These spaces mirror national news production studios, offering students significant experiential learning opportunities.
