Chart Your Own Course
While New York City can spoil you with its international cachet, there are other great world cities to immerse yourself in. MMC offers a number of study abroad programs that transport you beyond the five boroughs of NYC. Does Paris entice you? What about London? Perhaps Greece or Italy? Choose your location and open yourself to cultural discovery and global perspectives.
I found myself excited by the class sizes and the opportunity to really make a difference within the community. Dr. Mary Fleischer was integral to my experience at MMC. I got to work with her throughout my years at Marymount and really felt like I made a difference in my major. Her History of New Media class furthered my passion for experimental theater and the January course Experimental Theater was just the icing on the cake.Shelby Reilly ’18
Class of 2018, Major in Theatre and New Media
Studying abroad through the Umbra Institute taught me about appreciating a rich and thriving culture of food, music, and art. To me Perugia was more than just a place of learning, it was a home.Emil Lendof
Marymount at Umbra Summer ’12
Major: Graphic Design and Communication and Media Arts
Taking classes within the Arts Management minor, such as The History of Museums and Collections, complemented my majors in Art and Art History and assisted me in discovering how to employ my knowledge and skills while working in various cultural institutions throughout New York. In fact, the invaluable experiences gave me the confidence necessary to succeed in my role as an Administrative Intern at the Queens Historical Society during my last semester at MMC.Jillian Banks ’20
Class of 2020, Major in Art History and Art (double concentration in Studio Art and Graphic Design), Minor in Arts Management and Chemistry
The Sociology program helped me understand that social issues are socially experienced and socially produced even though as a society we tend to blame individuals.Jennifer Fecu ’21
Class of 2021, Sociology minor
MMC’s Fashion Marketing concentration seemed like exactly what I was looking for in a major. After getting to MMC, I never doubted that I made the right choice. I am so grateful for MMC, the city, and the friends I made here. I wouldn’t have traded the experience for anything and I feel confident and well-equipped to go out and make things happen for myself.Hannah Griffee ’21
