  • Class of 2010, Major in Biology

    “My experience at Marymount Manhattan College challenged me not only to study the basic sciences in a typical linear sequence, but rather to integrate coursework in sociology, language, and philosophy into the Biology major courses. Furthermore, I felt challenged by my mentors to continually revisit foundational concepts in advanced classes, so as to reinforce key concepts that are important for developing a strong foundation in the biological sciences.”

  • Class of 2018, Major in Biology and Behavioral Neuroscience, Minor in Dance and Chemistry

    “I spent three years working as a research assistant and then lab manager in Dr. Deirtra Hunter’s MMC Music, Mind and Brain Lab where we studied psychophysiological responses evoked by emotionally charged music in human participants. In my junior year I interned as a research assistant in the Morishita lab at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. This lab focused on synaptic plasticity and postnatal development of a neural circuit critical for visual spatial attention.  This internship led to a part time job as a senior in college, then a full time job for two years after graduation.

    Dr. Hunter was diligent in her efforts to ensure I graduated with indispensable practical research experiences on and off campus that made me a competitive applicant for professional and academic positions.”

  • Class of 2009, Major in Biology

    “As a bio major at MMC, I was continuously challenged and encouraged by my faculty and peers. Whether I was studying, conducting research, or discussing random scientific topics after class, the bio department was like a second home throughout my college years.  The skills and knowledge I gained during this time continue to filter into my daily professional life, and the relationships I fostered remain invaluable.”

  • Class of 2019, Major in Behavioral Neuroscience

    “Being a Behavioral Neuroscience Major at Marymount Manhattan College is an experience like no other. Working with Dr. Deirtra Hunter, you are allowed to not only get a deeper understanding of your classes, but she will help you find numerous opportunities geared towards your specific interest. Classes such as Perception and Developmental Neurobiology are challenging, engaging, and life changing.”

  • Class of 2012, Major in International Studies, Minor in Environmental Studies

    “After completing my Master of Science in Environmental Policy from University College Dublin, I am now working as both a Logistics Coordinator at Friendship Ambassadors Foundation, an international non-profit in Connecticut, and as an Environmental Assistant at Samsung.”

  • Class of 2019, Major in Behavioral Neuroscience

    “The Behavioral Neuroscience program at Marymount Manhattan College is the perfect addition to the Division of Natural Sciences. It encompasses my passion for biology, chemistry, and psychology. It may seem extensive, but when you have an advisor like Dr. Deirtra Hunter-Romagnoli, you are able to excel in your studies. Dr. Hunter-Ramgnoli has provided me with the education, guidance, and hands on training I needed to not only do well in school, but to acquire a position as a Research Associate at the Nestler Lab at The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai after graduation.”

  • Class of 2020, Major in Biomedical Sciences and Psychology

    I am a graduating senior with a double major in Psychology and Biomedical Sciences and a minor in Neuroscience. I have been accepted to the New York University Graduate School of Global Public Health to pursue a concentration in Public Health Policy and Management.

  • Class of 2012, Major in Biology

    “The rigorous curriculum taught me how to study and manage my time. 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.”

  • Class of 2012, Major in Biology with Minor in Environmental Studies

    “Today as I sit in my graduate level classes and begin my thesis research, I look back and realize how fortunate I am to have picked MMC for my Biology degree.  I owe it to the extraordinary faculty at MMC who have given me a strong foundation in science through patient, challenging, one-on-one teaching that I would not have found anywhere else!  MMC is a great college to attend if you want to experience rigor, opportunities, and a small, close-knit science community.”

  • Class of 2020, Double Major in Biology and Dance

    Right after graduating in May 2020, Hope Kenmore was hired as a full-time lab technician at the Institutional Biorepository Core (IBC) of Weill Cornell Medicine, where she is involved with research on COVID-19. She reports: 

    The faculty have taught me so much and helped prepare me so I could start working right after graduating, despite a pandemic, struggling economy, and difficult job market.
