Making the leap from high school to college can be challenging, especially in a city as big as New York! Our New York City Seminars are designed to help incoming first year students acclimate to MMC and to the larger NYC community, using a thoughtfully-designed curriculum that blends peer engagement and advisement with academic exploration of the cultural and historical richness of the City.
NYC Seminars are small, hands-on courses—capped at 18 students—taught by an accomplished, full-time faculty member. Learn to live in—and love!—your new community in one of these engaging and interactive seminars. Check out what some of the current seminar classes have been up to this semester:
Meet Your Peer Leaders
New York City Seminars are also characterized by the participation of a Peer Leader—an upper-level student who works in tandem with the course professor and helps students learn the ropes and navigate MMC and life in the city. Peer Leaders go through an intensive training in order to become trusted advisors who serve as resources for students both inside and outside the classroom.
