Hear From our Grads:

How did MMC prepare you for your graduate education and/or work setting? 

  • Josephine Ancelle 

    Class of 2014 Valedictorian, Major in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology

    “More than a very good speech language pathology program with inspiring, talented, and caring professors, the MMC Communication Sciences and Disorders Department is one big family.”


    Class of 2013, Major in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology

    “The experiences I had at Marymount have prepared me well for Graduate School. The research opportunities, clinical opportunities, and the one on one attention are invaluable. The professors at Marymount are the best of the best. They are passionate about the field and genuinely care for their students. They are incredibly knowledgeable and provide a strong learning environment. I firmly believe that much of my success is owed to the Communication Sciences and Disorders Department. They were always supportive and willing to help in any way they could. I will forever be grateful for the support, opportunities, and experiences I had at Marymount.”


    Class of 2013, Major in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology

    “What can I say about Marymount Manhattan? If you want an individualized academic experience where professors not only know your name but want you to succeed, then MMC is the place for you. The CSD department allowed real world application in addition to their curriculum, which took our learning past what we did in the classroom. This included clinical practicums during our undergraduate career, research positions, internships, and independent studies. In my two years at MMC as a transfer student from a larger university, I could not have asked for more opportunities and support from the college as a whole. These experiences, and these people, allowed me to jumpstart my graduate career, both academically and clinically, and set me on the road for success. If you have an interest or a goal, MMC will do their best to make it a reality. I could not be more grateful for the people I have met at MMC, the professional and personal connections I have made, and the work I have been a part of.”


    Class of 2010, Major in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology

    “MMC gave me confidence that pursuing a graduate degree in speech language pathology was the right choice. Upon entering graduate school, I felt well prepared for both the academic and clinical training courses because of my MMC education.”

  • Mary Elizabeth Zito ’08 

    Class of 2008, Major in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology

    “Marymount Manhattan College is one of the main features that set me [apart] from all the other students in my graduate program as well as my co-workers. MMC prepared me to think outside the box and be prepared to practice my field/skills in any environment at any time. Coming from such a supportive environment of professors and classmates has been a blessing and allows me to have colleagues to share knowledge with for the rest of my career.”
