Sing, dance, or study urban ecology. At MMC, you can do it all.

With outstanding programs in the sciences, social sciences, communications, humanities, business and the performing arts, MMC students have the academic world in the palms of their hands.

“The small class sizes allowed me to know my professors as people, not just educators, so much so that one interviewer commented that my letter of recommendation was one of the best they’ve ever read.”
Olympia Gaglioti, Class of 2012

At MMC, you don’t have to choose one or the other.

Don’t just learn how the body moves — learn how the body works. Take a class in theatrical dialects — then learn about the development of language. At MMC, you don’t have to study just one thing. Our students learn to think and thrive creatively and scientifically.

“At Marymount Manhattan, I could basically create my own program combining my passions in dance, theater and writing.”

Ryan Kasprzak Class of 2003

  • Hear from HEOP: The War on Poverty

    For several years, the students entering MMC’s HEOP program have studied the history of the program itself.  This summer was also the fiftieth anniversary of the start of the war on poverty, and so it was decided that this summer the HEOP students would focus on putting MMC’s HEOP history into the larger context.  Accordingly, the students followed the standard chronology of a U.S. history course, from Johnson’s declaration of a war on poverty in January 1964 to the establishment of the Office of Economic Opportunity under Sargent Shriver.  The students then used MMC’s own archives to expand that chronology to include MMC’s participation in the events of the day, and its own innovations in addressing the economic barriers to a college education.
