The community of students who choose to concentrate in PHIL/RS and minor in History at MMC is small and self-selecting, but we have formed a lively community of student-scholars who share a commitment to living the examined life. Full-time and adjunct faculty are available to our majors. And the Philosophy and Religious Studies Clubs at MMC actively promote events and social gatherings to promote community and connection.
New York City provides students with a variety of experiential learning options. Doing research and internships in the city—a unique hallmark of our program—helps our students develop rigorous critical analysis skills invaluable to any effort to effect change in the world.
Opportunities also exist for MMC students beyond our campus and city. For example, students have conducted research at the National Archives in Washington, D.C., interned for the United States Congress, and spent semesters studying abroad in Europe, Asia, South America, Africa, and the Middle East.
The Philosophy Club
The Philosophy Club is an open discussion on current issues held monthly in the college’s Library Writing Center. The Club provides opportunity for students, faculty and staff to gather informally to discuss topical issues.
